I give my little dog a mix of homecooked and grain free food.
I buy the least expensive cut of chicken already cut up. Then I boil it until a fork placed in a meaty spot will make the meat fall off the bone. I then pick out the bones and add frozen peas and carrots. Sometimes I will throw in a bit of rice. I then drain it and promptly refrigerate. I use thighs a lot and if whatever cut I get has a lot of skin I take that off before cooking. Since your kitty may be an outdoor kitty when it is cold you could leave a bit of skin on for extra fat and calories.
You can then put the meat and veggies in a food processor if you want. I don't often bother.
Whatever you give him don't be shocked if he doesn't eat the people food. Some cats just won't. Also don't feed leftovers with sauces or gravies and stay away from dairy. All those might upset his tummy.
Good luck as it sounds like you have recieved the great honor of being 'chosen'. Give him lots of pets and be sure to spay or neuter when the cat is comfortable with you. That will keep him/her from wandering and perhaps becoming road kill looking for a mate.
