Popsicles

When things get warm, it’s nice for your furry friend to have a cold treat, too. Making frozen goodies for your cat is easy. Just fill a small, freezable cup or ice tray with a mixture her favorite wet food and a little water, and then freeze. You can also try adding a little catnip, or other natural, edible goodies your cat loves.

Cookies

Cookies for cats are not quite like the cookies you eat. But, your cat may love a tuna-flavored, soft treat from once in a while. They’re as easy to make as the cookies you make for yourself. Just mix some tuna and egg with flour, water, and parsley or catnip. When you have a dough, dust it with flour and roll it out. Cut out bite-sized pieces and bake them at 350 degrees. You don’t have to use Tuna if your cat doesn’t like it. You can use almost any other meat she prefers.

Crunchy Treats

A good crunch is good for your cat’s teeth. With some flour, tuna (or other favorite meat), egg, catnip, and a little oil, you can bake some extra-crunchy treats your cat will love. Just mix in a processor, work into a dough, and bake at about 350 degrees until brown and crunchy.

The great thing about homemade treats is that you know precisely what your cat is eating. You can use the best of ingredients. Of course, it’s also great if you love baking in general.
