Here is a very basic recipe for cats with kidney disease. It makes a lot so you can freeze the unused portion, thaw and heat up for later.

1 cup organic brown rice
1 cup white corn grits
1 cup corn grits polenta
1 cup soy lecithin granules
1 cup pork fat

Cook in water for 1 hour, mix well and let cool before serving.

As cats don't drink water so giving canned food is best for cats with this kidney disease as canned food have moisture that will help to ensure your cat gets a sufficient water in the diet.

Patient Evaluation During Dietary Management

The evaluation of all patients is done by periodic blood chemistry measurements and any other appropriate testing. It is expected that abnormal blood values will improve or return to normal. After recovery it becomes important to modify dietary restrictions to provide an animal's nutritional needs. Without this monitoring it is possible that nutrient deficiency could develop. The owner-prepared diets offer more than one choice of special diet for disease conditions than are available from commercial pet food companies. An animal's specific needs can be met with owner-prepared diets. That might be possible if a commercial diet just happens to provide what is needed for recovery. With improvement some of the fat soluble vitamins can be given. It is not necessary to give them more than weekly or several times a month. The liver stores these vitamins and it takes months or years to deplete the the stores of vitamins A and D, ones that have the greatest potential for being toxic.

Whitey, I'm afraid these recipes don't sound very good for ANY cat, not just CKD cats. The rice and potatoes are unnecessary carbs (leads to obesity and diabetes) and new studies are showing that cats with kidney disease should not be on low protein diets: http://www.veterinarypracticenews.com/Why-Feline-Kidney-Insufficienc y-is-still-Tricky-to-Treat/

How is Whitey doing?
