Since many of today’s cat treats are full of preservatives and chemicals, why not make them yourself? It’s relatively easy and quick, and, best of all, you know what kitty is eating!
• Greased cookie sheet
• ½ c organic whole wheat flour
• ½ c non-fat, powdered milk
• ½ c cooked and chopped organic chicken
• 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
• 1 organic egg, beaten
• ¼ c water
• 1 Tbsp chopped, fresh organic catnip (optional)
Gather the ingredients and preheat your oven to 350° F. Ensure you have plenty of counter space to work on.
Combine the flour, milk, and chicken in a large bowl and mash and mix them together. Add the water, oil, beaten egg, and catnip (if using). Stir well until a sticky dough forms.
Form the dough into small dime-sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten the balls into discs with your hand or a spoon. You can adjust the size of the treats based on your cat’s size and needs.
Bake the organic treats for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip each one so they brown on both sides. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until they turn a golden brown colour.
Cool the treats to room temperature and store in an airtight container or bag.
