An e-mail this morning ended with “How about something for cats in your pumpkin theme?”  Thanks Terry, we don’t mind if we do.

This creepy cat food recipe will strengthen old cat bones, nurture growing cat bones, and maintain healthy cat bones.  It’s also a good, natural source of the essential amino acid, taurine.

Old Fish Bones in a Pumpkin

© Formulated by Melody McKinnon exclusively for

1/4 cup of canned, mashed or pureed 100% pure pumpkin
1/3 cup of chopped Atlantic sardines (unseasoned, packed in water)
1 hard-boiled egg (mashed with fork or pureed with pumpkin)
1 TBSP cottage cheese
1/2 tsp calcium montmorillonite clay or other natural mineral supplement
1/2 tsp seaweed/algae powder
1 tsp finely ground Krill

  1. Combine pumpkin, cottage cheese, calcium montmorillonite clay/mineral supplement, seaweed, and krill.  Mix until well blended.
  2. Add Sardines and boiled egg.  Mix again until well blended.
  3. Serve & refrigerate unused portions.

Yield: 3-5 meals, or mix smaller portions with manufactured cat food as a supplement. Introduce slowly if your cat is not accustomed to a home prepared diet.

Nutrition Bite:  Meat, fish, krill, eggs, seaweed and milk products are natural sources of taurine, an essential amino acid for cats.  Taurine is heat sensitive, however, with foods losing more than 50% of their taurine content during the cooking process.

Note: This recipe isn’t intended to be a source of complete, daily nutrition. It can be included as part of a nutritious diet for cats.

  1. Wow this is fantastic. I would like to see more recipes from you when you have time because you’re truly gifted with formulas.

  2. I made a double batch so I’m good for a month or two. It really IS a fantastic cat food recipe.

  3. Oh wow, I’ve never seen such goodness in a cat food recipe. Some very spoiled cats coming right up!

  4. We always get dry food and mix it in with wet food because if you just feed your cat wet food it will not be able to clean it’s teeth properly because the dry food helps to clean them. And when you let them feed dry food, it will make them choke.
