Homemade kitty treats for Hades’ 10th birthday!

Kitty_treats1

Generally I would not be classified as a crazy cat lady. But, I do adore my one cat, and today is his 10th birthday! So I had to do something special to celebrate. I looked online and found an easy recipe for homemade kitty treats. What i liked best about this recipe is that all the ingredients are things that humans eat, and that I have on hand in my kitchen. This way, I could make sure the final product tastes good before giving it to the birthday boy.

Before I get to the recipe, here are some pictures I wanted to share.

Truth be told, Hades wasn’t crazy about the treats. But like I said, they are made with people-friendly ingredients, and I found them to be pretty tasty. So, if your cat doesn’t like them, at least they won’t go to waste. Also, if you have a dog, I’m sure they would love them as dogs love all food.
