Cats Deserve Homemade Treats, Too.
Your cat may not be as attention-seeking as a puppy would be, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want a little nibble of something delicious every now and again. She doesn’t have to learn tricks or prove worthy of a treat, either. Sometimes, it’s just nice to whip something up in the kitchen for the furry little love of your life.
Skip the processed, store-bought treats and spend an hour in the kitchen creating a few healthier options. These recipes are sure to delight your cat, and they are pretty easy to recreate.
4 Purr-Fect Treat Recipes for Your Cat
Pawesome Cats has a recipe worth whipping up! Your cat will be purring for more. Simply combine drained tuna, rice or oat flour, an egg and catnip in a bowl, and mix it thoroughly with a fork until combined. The mixture should hold together but not be excessively sticky. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a little extra olive oil as required. You’ll roll bite-sized dough balls and bake until done. Make sure to let them cool completely before serving.
The Cookie Rookie has a sweet treat your cat won’t be able to resist! Salmon, egg, and flour are mixed together to form a dough before they are rolled out and cut into your favorite shapes. You’ll bake them until perfectly brown and let them cool before offering to your cat.
Popsugar Pets has an easy-to-make treat recipe for you. If you stick to the organic ingredient list, you’ll be providing an overall healthy, well-balanced snack for your pet. Even though it is called a Spinach and Chicken Treat, you can swap out boneless and skinless organic chicken breasts for salmon or tuna with the same cat-loving results. You’ll mix the meat with oats, spinach leaves, egg, and catnip and knead into a dough. You can use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into small pieces before a quick trip into the oven.
If your cat likes sardines, this recipe from Off Beat Home will have your cat jumping for joy. You’ll need a food processor to pulse your own flours before combining catnip, sardines, eggs, parsley, and oil to blend together. You will form the dough into pressed balls or roll it and cut into shapes before baking. (You may want to ensure that your feline enjoys sardines before filling your house with the smell of these baked treats!)
No matter what you bake up for your cat, make sure you give her a few extra kisses to remind her how loved she is!
