Preparing and Storing Chicken Liver Meals • Kritter Kommunity

Do you want to treat your feline friend to a culinary experience that will have them purring in delight? Look no further! We’re about to embark on a cat-tastic culinary adventure, whipping up some mouthwatering homemade chicken liver meals for your beloved furball. And don’t worry; we’ll also make sure you know how to keep these dishes fresh and nutritious, just like a true top chef.

Let’s Get Started!


  • 1 cup of fresh chicken livers (because your cat deserves only the best)
  • A tablespoon of olive oil (for that added touch of sophistication)
  • A pinch of catnip (optional, but your cat will thank you)


  1. Prepare the chicken livers: Rinse the chicken livers under cold water and pat them dry. Remove any tough membranes and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Remember, we’re cooking for cats, so ‘bite-sized’ should be small, not human-sized!
  2. Sauté the livers: Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken livers and sauté them until they are no longer pink in the center. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Don’t overcook them; cats are not fans of well-done liver!
  3. Catnip magic (optional): If you want to take it up a notch, sprinkle some catnip over the livers while they’re still hot. Your cat’s senses will be on cloud nine!
  4. Cool and serve: Allow the chicken livers to cool down to room temperature before serving them to your feline companion. Make sure to cut the pieces into smaller bits if your cat is more of a nibbler than a chomper.

Now that you’ve whipped up a gourmet meal for your cat, let’s talk about how to store the leftovers (if there are any)!

Storing the Chicken Liver Delights

1. Refrigeration:

If your cat happens to be a light eater, store the remaining chicken liver meal in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should be good for up to 3-4 days. Just remember to warm it up a bit before serving it to your kitty because, well, who likes cold liver?

2. Freezing:

To make these delicious meals last longer, you can freeze them. Divide the chicken liver dish into small portions and place them in freezer-safe containers.

Label them with the date to keep track. These frozen morsels can last up to three months.

When it’s time to serve, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight, and reheat as needed. Just be sure not to overheat – nobody wants cat food that’s hotter than a dragon’s breath!

3. Smell Test:

Always do a quick sniff test before serving any leftovers to ensure they haven’t gone bad. If it smells off, it’s best to toss it rather than risk your cat’s delicate taste buds.

Your cat will get sick on bad food just like you do. When in doubt, stay out!

Safety Tips

  • No seasonings: Cats prefer their food without all those fancy spices, so please don’t add any seasoning, especially onions, garlic, and salt, as these can be harmful to our feline friends.
  • Keep it fresh: Always use fresh chicken livers, and be mindful of any unusual odors that may indicate spoilage.
  • Consult your vet: Before making any major dietary changes for your cat, it’s always a good idea to consult your veterinarian, as they can provide guidance tailored to your cat’s unique needs.

So there you have it, a culinary adventure fit for a cat! With these homemade chicken liver meals, your feline friend will be in gastronomic heaven. Just remember to store the leftovers properly, and you’ll have your cat singing your praises in no time. Bon appétit, or should we say, “Purrr-fectly Delicious”! 🐾😺
