MORE HOMEMADE CAT TREAT RECIPES
You'll find a few tasty recipes and ideas in our article titled How to Make Cat Treats Your Cat Will Love, but if you're still looking for more homemade cat treat recipes, you've come to the right place!
There is no doubt that your cat would love to sample homemade creations. There is nothing like freshly made food or treats to really whet the appetite. Creating treats that your cat will love is so simple to do.
To create homemade cat treats like nothing you could buy, really only requires your imagination. Treats don't have to be only hard and dried out cookies and crackers. They can be moist, soft, frozen, or whatever your particular cat likes. Look to things you enjoy eating and figure out new ways to fashion those into cat treat recipes.
Here are a few more ideas to get you started for homemade cat treat recipes:
- Frozen bits: There might be nothing better on a hot summer day than a nice, cold frozen treat. Teething kittens might also really enjoy these to help with their sore gums. You can make small flavored ice cubes. Fill each ice cube holder chock full of shredded fish and then fill in the spaces with water or broth. Each cube should be mostly fish (or another flavor of your cat's liking). You don't have to fill the cubes all the way either. You can make thinner layers by filling only partway.
- Meringues: Meringue cookies are some of the best cookies around. You can adapt a recipe for meringue cookies by reducing the amount of sugar to only that necessary to form stiff peaks in the beaten meringue. Then, fold in shredded catnip or other flavorings. Follow the recipe for baking temperature and times.
- Waffles: If you have a waffle maker that you don't mind using for your cat, you can make some terrific treats using the waffle maker. Follow a recipe for a nutritious, higher fiber waffle recipe. Use whole wheat or oatmeal based recipes. Instead of water or milk, add a meat based broth and stir in precooked, diced meat bits. Once fully cooked, you can easily cut the waffle into bite sized pieces using the squares as a guide.
- Omelets: Eggs can form a great base for a tasty treat. Simply crack an egg or two and beat together with a tablespoon of water. What you choose to flavor the omelet with is up to you. Some suggestions might be: finely diced vegetables, catnip, finely diced precooked meats or fish, etc. Pour into oiled frying pan on low/medium level heat and cook until eggs are cooked through, as you would for an omelet yourself. Slide onto a cutting board and cut into bite sized pieces.
- Lunch rolls: Purchase a couple slices of fresh, thinly sliced deli meats. Buy two or three different varieties. You can make an easy rollup of meats for your cat: Lay out one slice of lunchmeat and spread a thin layer of plain yogurt on top. Place the second slice of lunchmeat. Again another layer of yogurt and the last piece of lunchmeat. The yogurt helps hold it together (and Greek yogurt would be best for its thickness). Then, either roll up the lunchmeats and slice or cut the flat lunchmeats into dices.
These are just a few ideas that are quick to whip together for delicious homemade cat treat recipes. They aren't your usual treat recipes, but they provide your cat with something special, tasty, and nutritious.
