Default Before commercial cat food.....

Please help my research for cat food. =A0 Before lots of people started
feeding their cat commercial cat food, (crunchy type or canned food)
what were they feeding their cat?
Is there such a thing like a traditional "home made" cat food? =A0

If you were living with a cat/cats back in those days, what did you
usually end up feeding them?

Thank you very much for your help!

Marie

Sure. It's called "table scraps." Dogs lived on it too, somehow.

I believe that for the most part, cats have historically been kept to do
a job: pest control. As a result they were generally expected to feed
themselves if they were successful at their job. Puss probably got the
occasional bowl of fresh warm milk by the hearth, and was quite loved,
but until our society had acquired a certain amount of luxury you
couldn't probably afford to have an animal that didn't pull its own
weight.
