Want to give your kitty the best birthday ever? This triple-layer meat cake will not disappoint.
To help my kitties celebrate their brithdays, I decided to make them a raw meat cake. The trick to making this work is to help the cake keep its form. I used a 6″ x 3″ springform cake pan. As you can see from the pics, this is a nice compact springform that is only about the width of your hand.
For the bottom layer, I made a “graham crust” style of base for the cake by putting kibble through the food processor with 2 tbsp of lamb liver. The kibble I use is a primal-friendly formulation. (NB: I supplement my cats’ raw/primal diet with a little bit of primal-friendly kibble. They absolutely love it — if you look closely at the pic you can see teeth marks in the bag! It is like a huge treat for them, so it made the perfect bottom layer for their birthday cake). If you are looking for a good-quality kibble to feed your cat as a supplement to their raw/primal diet, I highly recommend the Acana brand!
If you don’t have kibble, you can use pureed chicken hearts for the base layer of the cake.
The next layer up is local grass-fed beef heart. Finally, the top layer is local lamb liver that is set using grass-fed unflavoured beef gelatin. The gelatin that I use is shown in the pic. (By the way, I do not get paid to promote any of the products I mention here.)
As you can see, my kitties loved this cake. Nebula is 18 and Catherine & Heathcliff are 4. Neb liked it so much she actually ate a full slice. Catherine liked it so much she was squealing while purring while eating. Heathcliff liked it so much he overate to the point that I had to take it away before he hurt himself.
If you make this cake for your kitties please let me know how yours liked it!
