There are two kinds of cat food which can be made. Some people prefer to make the homemade cooked cat food recipes while the other ones prefer to leave it to be raw. Both cooked and raw food have both pros and cons. Cooked food is said to be safer as the bacteria contained in the meat is gone after the cooking process. However, people are also afraid that the nutrition is gone along with the bacteria. As for the raw food, it is said to have complete nutrition and the bacteria.
