This morning while Kitty Mommy was in the kitchen working on a crafts project, Kizzme quickly got my attention as she tip-toed her way into my pots and pans cabinet for the first time. I think she had too much fun and I may have to cat-proof yet another cabinet door to now keep her away from the pots and pans.
Is this a sign that Kizzme’s wanting to learn to cook? Or perhaps she’s motivating me to make some home-made cat treats which I promised her when she gets “Straight A’s” in kitten kindergarten!
How did your parents motivate you to do well in school? For me it was cash, but since cash doesnt seem to resonate with kitties, and food most always does, I’ve decided I’ll make her some homemade cat treats. I’m not fond of store-bought treats as i n my prior experience they always seem to quickly stale. Maybe packaging has approved in the last few years but I prefer natural ingredients without preservatives for Kizzme treats.
If you’re a Kitty Mommy lucky enough to have some spare time on your hands, try these recipes and let us know what you think. In the meantime my finely grated-cheddar cheese bits seem to do just fine and Kizzme loves the cheddar! Gee, don’t we all…
Now here’s a recipe for natural cat treats sounds good enough to tempt any human, much less any cat…
Cheese Treats au Naturel (makes about 24 treats) or cut the ingredients in one half to make about a dozen. You can freeze these treats using a freezer ziplock or other freezer container but we bet they won’t last long.
You’ll need these ingredients (remember, making them organic pet treats if possible)
¾ cup shredded or grated cheddar cheese ¾ cup whole wheat flour ¼ cup sour cream or yogurt (plain) ¼ cup cornmeal 5 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine all the ingredients into dough (add a touch of water if needed). Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to ¼ inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 25 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.
