It’s that time of year again! Holiday cookies are one of the many things we love about this special season. Why not make your feline friend some cookies? Read on as a local Webster, NY vet lists some purrfect homemade holiday treats for kitties.
Combine a can of plain, undrained tuna with an egg, flour, parsley, and sodium-free fish broth. You can add a small amount of breadcrumbs as well. Mix the ingredients well. Then, divide into small pieces, and bake for 25 minutes at 350.
Salmon/Sweet Potato Bites
You’ll need a large can of salmon or mackerel. Start by removing any remaining bones or skin. Then, mix it with a large baked, mashed sweet potato, a cup and a half of plain oats, and a ¼ cup of fresh parsley. You may want to use a food processor to combine everything. Then, divide the mix into small pieces. You’ll actually freeze these treats overnight, instead of cooking them. Thaw a few at a time for Fluffy.
Start with a can of plain tuna in water, a half cup of white cornmeal, a half cup of flour, and a half cup of water. Mix the ingredients into a batter. Then, divide it up into small servings by rolling the mix into tiny balls. When you have them on a baking sheet, use your finger to flatten the balls out. Bake at 350 for ten minutes, flipping halfway through.
This kitty favorite only needs three ingredients: canned salmon, a beaten egg, and two cups of whole-wheat flour. First, combine all the ingredients. Next, roll the dough out. Use a cookie cutter to divide into small pieces. (Tip: a clean bottlecap will also work.) Cook for 20 minutes at 350.
These are just a few options. You can also mix and match, or make your own. Just be careful not to give Fluffy anything that isn’t safe for her. Some dangerous foods include garlic, onion, scallions, and chives: chocolate; nuts; alcohol; pitted fruits; grapes, currants, and raisins; caffeine; meat on the bone; raw meat, dough, or yeast; dairy products; and anything that contains a lot of fat, sugar, or salt.
