Cat lovers who love to bake, get ready, because this is the holiday that was made for you. November 1st is National Cook For Your Pets Day. In honor of the special occasion, here are 7 homemade cat food recipes that you can treat your kitty with. Just like us humans, cats love a special treat every once in a while too.
1. Simple Homemade Cat Food
This is a simple, easy, and quick way to prepare your cat a homemade meal. All you will need is three ingredients: sardines, carrots, and oatmeal. While this may sound like an odd combination, the cats that taste tested the sample dish in the video sure loved it. Let’s just say though you might want to leave this recipe for the cats because these three ingredients combined together create a very interesting smell.
2. Tuna Cookies
These homemade tuna cookies are perfect for holidays, birthdays, stocking stuffers or if you just feel like spoiling your kitty. Once you mix the four ingredients together, tuna, cornmeal, flour, and water, then the fun part comes. After you create the batter you can use cookie cutters to create any shapes you like. These are great treats for your cat that allow you to show your creative side, even if your cat only appreciates the taste.
3. Crunchy Tuna Treats
These tiny snacks are a great idea for rewarding your cat while training. They are bite sized so you can give your cat a lot of them over a small period of time without overfeeding them. After mixing the ingredients you take the batter and roll it into tiny balls. Your cats are sure to love you a little more because of this snack.
4. Homemade Organic Cat Food
Sometimes it’s nice to change up your cat’s diet. While it’s completely okay to buy commercial cat food from the store, this organic treat is a great idea to spoil your cat with a healthy snack. This recipe combines tuna, chopped parsley and brown rice. Once baked, you can chop it up into bite size pieces.
5. Birthday Cake
Everyone deserves to have cake on their birthday, even your cat! This is a great way to make a safe and delicious treat for kitty so she can have something fun to eat to celebrate her birthday. The main ingredient in this cake is tuna, so you might want to hold back on dining with your cat and instead buy a human cake for yourself to take part in the fun.
6. Catnip Kitty Treats
Cats love catnip, that is an obvious. It’s a given that your cats will definitely love this snack because the main garnish is catnip. What’s fun about these treats is if you cut them as the video shows you can make them look like mini fish. They actually resemble the Goldfish cracker snacks humans eat, but they are fish cookie snacks that cats can actually eat.
7. Liver Cookie Cat Treats
Liver cookies to cats are like what chocolate chip cookies are to humans. Cats deserve a fun delicious treat once in a while just like humans do and these cookies are the perfect way to do it. Just make sure when you bake the cookies that your human friends don’t mistake them for real cookies. You might not enjoy them but to cats they are heaven!
