It provides a balanced and flavorful meal for your cat. The ground beef is cooked until tender, mixed with the other ingredients, and divided into individual servings. This recipe can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for future use. Ensure proper thawing before serving.

  1. 4 cups cooked ground beef
  2. 2 cups cooked brown rice
  3. 1⁄2 cup alfalfa sprout, chopped fine

  5. 1 cup cottage cheese


  1. In a large skillet, crumble the ground beef and cook it over medium heat until it is cooked through but not browned.
  2. Remove the skillet from the heat. Drain the excess fat from the ground beef and rinse it under hot water to remove any remaining fat.

  4. Once cooled, return the ground beef to the skillet. Add the cooked brown rice, chopped alfalfa sprouts, carrots, and cottage cheese to the skillet.
  5. Mix all the ingredients in the skillet until they are well combined.
  6. Divide the mixture into individual meals, based on your cat's serving size or your preferred portioning.
  7. Store the individual meals in the refrigerator. This recipe will remain good for three days in the refrigerator.
  8. If there are any portions that won't be used within three days, you can freeze them for later use.
  9. When serving, thaw frozen portions in the refrigerator before feeding them to your cat.


It's important to use lean ground beef to minimize the fat content in the cat food.
Make sure the ground beef is thoroughly cooked to ensure it is safe for consumption.
Rinsing the ground beef under hot water after cooking helps remove excess fat.
Cooling the cooked ground beef completely before mixing it with other ingredients prevents the cottage cheese from melting and losing its texture.
Ensure that the carrots are cooked and mashed well to make them easier for your cat to consume.
Store the individual meals in airtight containers or freezer-safe bags to maintain freshness and prevent contamination.
When thawing frozen portions, do so in the refrigerator to ensure safe defrosting.
Monitor your cat's response to the homemade food and consult with your veterinarian for any specific feeding instructions or dietary considerations.
