Hi Mally,

 

               <G>. Please throw Pitcairns recipes as far down the street as possible. Lisa Pearson's is much better, and I use a raw recipe very close to hers. But I don't know if she offers a cooked recipe, and I am very hesitant about using raw with immune compromised kitties. At this point, I'm feeding that bunch canned.

 

                I'm sure there are good cooked recipes out there, and you have motivated me to look for them:)

 

All the best,

 

Margo

Subject: [Felvtalk] Homemade food for FeLV cats

Hello,

Do you use dr. Lisa Pearson or Dr. Pitcarns recipes for homemade food for cats?
I'm planning on starting to feed homemade food to Kitty, 11month FeLV positive girl
I rescued . Any suggestions?
I have their recipes but any other suggestions are welcome,

Thanks,

Mally and Kitty

Hi Chris,

 

               It's very possible to make your own cat food, and I have/do. It isn't as simple as chicken + a cat vitamin, but it isn't that difficult either. Google "Home prepared cat food" and start reading recipes. I use no grain and very few (if any) veggies and fruits. Essential are taurine and calcium, unless you're feeding raw with bone, then you can skip the Ca.

 

               I liked the list, as well, as it gave me new foods to look into, but I was disappointed in most of them when I looked at the ingredients. The only one I use from there is Hound and Gatos. The other canned varieties seem to have too many extraneous ingredients, and I don't feed raw to the FeLV group, not even my own preparation. Tiki is way too expensive for  me to even consider (I think the Hound and Gatos is too high, as well, but I do keep it in the mix) and most varieties have fish, which may not be good for my FLUTD/FeLV boys. I confess that I feed some "lpw-end" foods, simply beause I like the ingredient lists better than some of the high end ones. It's all a choice :)

 

HTH

That’s a great site-thanks!

I’ve been feeding mine Tiki Cat, and I was wondering...in
looking at it and reading the ingredients list, wouldn’t it be
a lot cheaper and just as good to boil some chicken and add
a cat vitamin?

Ember was four years old when she tested positive, but she must have had the disease prior to that. She might have been as young as two or three years old when the infection became persistent. We still don't know how the virus got into the house, whether through Ember herself or a stray kitten my parents took in who was later euthanized due to symptoms a year and a half later.
 
About lymphoma, please join the feline lymphoma Yahoo! group. The support there is amazing, and a vet frequently comments there.
 
I'm glad that the others aren't showing symptoms. My Ember has thankfully had very few issues with the virus. Her main symptoms are: low white blood cell count, anisocoria (one pupil is fully open all the time), and some very minor bouts of diarrhea (not in the last few years) and upper respiratory infections. For the most part, she gets sick like a normal cat.

Ember eats Tiki Cat these days, which is the priciest stuff, but other brands like Hound & Gatos and Great Life Essentials are more affordable.

Hi Lance,
 
 
Are any of your FeLV+ cats showing symptoms?
***Besides Jack, who has lymphoma, none of the other cats show any symptoms.
Lance, when was your girl diagnosed with it?
