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.
- 3/4 cup white flour
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 5 TBSP grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup water
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine cheeses and yogurt. Add flour and cornmeal. Mix for a bit and then add water.
- Knead dough into a ball and roll to 1/4 inch. Cut into desired shapes with mini cookie cutters and place on greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes
I baked the smaller letters for about 12 minutes, and the stars for 20 minutes
Happy Birthday to my Hades! Even though you turned your nose up at the treats I spend all day making for you, I still love you.
