None is more deserving of a holiday treat than those with claws and paws. But maybe your kitty is super sensitive, and you’re not sure what to give her. Here’s a simple recipe to put the merry into your furball’s season without her getting indigestion.
REMEMBER: it’s always best not to feed a pet from your own plate if you’re unsure it won’t hurt your paw friend.
Merry baked-fish treats for Mittens
150 g tinned tuna (in oil)
1 cup rice flour
1T dried catnip
Food grade coconut oil
PREHEAT OVEN : to 175 C
Drain the tuna.
Place everything except the oil in a mixing bowl.
Mix with a fork till smooth.
If the mixture is a little sticky, add a little oil. You want a dough that holds together but does not stick to the fork.
Roll the dough till it is even and about 1,5 cm thick.
Use a small festive cookie cutter to cut small shapes (around the size of a teaspoon).
Place on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes. The treats will be slightly brown on top when they’re ready.
DO NOT give treats to kitty when they are warm.
STORAGE: in an airtight container in the fridge, they’ll be okay for up to 7 days.
