So far this week, I have shared with you treat ideas for the wild birds, dogs and horses. Today I have to do a quick post for our cat lovers.
I have pretty finicky cats when it comes to eating. One particularly enjoys when he hears the can opener. He runs thinking that it is a can of tuna and that he will be getting the water from the can and the little lickings left inside the can all to himself!
As with our horses and dogs in the past, we have stocking for our cats for Christmas as well. My hubby thinks I am crazy, but they are a part of our family too and I love stuffing stockings:)) In our cat stockings, I like to add little handmade cat toys filled with catnip and some homemade treats. Here is a recipe for treats that even my finicky cat will eat:
1-1/2 cups cooked chicken or turkey
1 large egg
2 Tbl. chicken broth
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
In a blender or processor whirl chicken, egg and broth until smooth. Scrape into bowl. Add cornmeal and 1/2 cup flour, stir until moistened. Cover dough and refrigerate at least 2 hrs. Then roll out 1/4 in thick on lightly floured board. Cut into 1/2 in squares or triangles. Scatter on 3 greased 12 x 15 baking sheets. Bake at 350 until golden (about 15 min.) Remove from oven, stir in pans and let cool. Refrigerate airtight up to 2 weeks, freeze for longer storage. Makes about 3 cups.
We have four cats and they just gobble these up.
See you right back here tomorrow!
