A little note …

Tillie and Tom have no sensitivities to any of the ingredients used in this recipe. All the ingredients we use are the same as what the humans eat. Yummy.

Feeding quanitities …

Tillie and Tom love their home cooked food and as a guideline they are fed 2 – 3% of their bodyweight per day, including treats.

For example, Tillie weighs 13kg and is at her ideal weight. She is very active so is fed 3% of her bodyweight per day which is 390g, made up of 165g for breakfast, 165g for dinner and 60g fed as a light lunch and treats.
