...I believe (may be wrong) that Auntie Crazy gives her kitties some liver each week, and that she "hand feeds" it rather than incorporating it into a recipe.  I'm no expert, but based on my current knowledge and experience, that's something I'd like to try. 5CM

Nope, you're spot on, 5CM. Actually, I don't use any recipe, as such - I offer... ughh, rather than explain it, I'll just do a quick copy/paste of my current feeding schedule:

Breakfast:
Gizzards, chicken or beef heart, beef round, or pork loin.

Dinner:
- Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday: Bone-in meals of chicken wings, backs, ribs, or necks, or half a quail.
- Tuesday and Friday: Organ meals of chicken or beef liver and kidney.
- Saturday and Sunday: Turkey drumstick meat and skin, or chicken leg quarter meat.

Before Bed:
Chicken breast meat, turkey drumstick meat and skin, or chicken leg quarter meat.

Once a week, they share a single 3.75oz can of sardines and every couple of weeks, they get a whole mouse apiece and/or share a couple dozen live crickets.

I use no supplements and none of this is cooked.

This is a complete, very easy to procure, prepare and serve feeding regimen. Hope it's helpful in some way!

Well, now I am desperate!   My cats simply won't eat the FF at all now. I gave them some people canned alaskan pink salmon today.  they will not starve, I give them three different kinds of dry food, so they will get their vitamins, but I would like them to get some real meat.  I would not give them raw.

Ah, but don't you see, BW, "real meat" to a cat is raw.

The danger inherent in cooking for cats (or any animal) is that we don't actually know everything that cats need to thrive on, or in what quantities, nor do we know precisely what is altered, and to what extent, by the various cooking processes. In addition, synthetic nutrients can't equal natural ingredients in either their digestibility or their efficacy, nor do they provide the benefits that come with the synergy of nutrients when they are fed in their natural combinations.

You hear lots of information and chatter about taurine but, just as sure as I'm sitting here, there are other, as-yet-unidentified nutrients that cats require just as much as they do taurine. Feeding raw (in whatever form: whole prey, frankenprey or homemade ground) is our best assurance of providing everything the cat needs to thrive.

It's a tough sell, I know. I totally understand the gut-crawling sensation at the thought of tossing down a chunk of raw meat. Just try to realize that this is a socially-created aversion, and one your kitty does not share.
