Homemade treats for your sweet kitty!

I know I know, I missed a few days with posting lovely holiday stuff. I could give you a list of excuses (finals, messy house, cat attacks, etc), but why bore you with that? Instead I will try and make it up by sharing these incredible kitty treat recipes I found on!

Savory Cheese Treats (makes 2 dozen treats)
  • 3/4 cup white flour
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine cheeses and yogurt. Add flour and cornmeal. If needed, add a small amount of water to create a nice dough. Knead dough into a ball and roll to 1/4 inch. Cut into one inch sized pieces and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. 

Tuna Tidbits
(makes 12)

  • 6oz. can of tuna
  • 1/4 cup liquid drained from tuna (add water to liquid if needed)
  • 3 tbsp cooked egg whites, scrambled 
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine tuna, egg white and water. Add cornmeal and flour and blend to form a dough. Knead into a ball and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into one-inch sized pieces. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. 

Thanks to for sharing these terrific recipes!
