Not just for Italian cats! One of my cats, Sweet Pea, is always after my spaghetti. These treats have a great tomato and Parmesan aroma and taste that allows me to eat my food in peace while she indulges elsewhere.
I intend to spoil my cats for as long as they’ll let me. (Enlightened self-interest, in this case. I love to watch them get “teatarded”) You can substitute chicken broth or chicken soup for the bouillon and water if you choose. Just to clarify... THIS IS FOR CATS.
This is a recipe for cats using Prowl dehydrated cat food from thehonestkitchen.com. It is a grain-free diet, made with 100% Human Grade hormone-free chicken, plus eggs, potatoes, yams, flaxseed, zucchini, spinach, honey, cranberries (for urinary tract health) and rosemary. This treat is easy to make, very nutritious and free of cereal grains.
For our feathered friends who need our help in the winter!
If possible use flexible molds or muffin pans lined with paper cups. If you don't have flexible molds, immerse the molds in hot water for several seconds before removing the cakes.
They also make a nice gift for our human friends who like to look after the birds.
It is nice to make this in one large mold and display the cake in your garden (in a safe place away from other animals!)
Don't take notice of the yield because that will depend on the size of molds you use.
You can also be somewhat flexible with the amounts given in the recipe, they will still turn out well and much better than any store bought cakes for the birds. They love them and my 'garden restauant' is always full of satisfied customers!
If you have some netting to put them in you can hang them from a tree branch.
I'll admit it, Valentina has us completely wrapped around her paw. She simply adores these tiny treats and the DH loves to give them to her for that reason. I'm happy too because I know that they aren't full of chemicals and preservatives and I don't mind slipping her one or two myself although we all know thats it's Dads job! I'm guessing at the yield because I've never really counted them. You can make bigger bites of you have a bigger "kid".
My little doggie who doesn't care for many store-bought doggie treats, just loves these. Note: the actual recipe did not call for brown sugar, but I added it in for a bit of sweetness, you have the option of adding it or not)
A treat for your cat. If you'd rather you can add the catnip to the recipe instead of rolling the balls in it. They like it either way. You can also adjust the amount of catnip based on how much your cat likes cat nip (mine are pigs).
Who can resist those pleading eyes, that heart-wrenching cry, that drooling mouth? (Well, two out of three is pretty motivational to me.) Return the love to that dog who loves you unconditionally and tell him/her BONE APPETITE from me! Preparation time is approximate. Makes roughly 1-1/4 pound dry dog biscuits.
As editor of a local animal shelter's newsletter, I have added one recipe per issue of various animal recipes. With this one, my cockatiel, Girly, feels like a Starbuck's patron with her very own biscotti! I draw the line at a frappuccino, though. Caffeine and chocolate are among many birdie NO-NOs! NOTE: Time does not include waiting for egg shells to dry or cooling after baking. Cooking time is PER BATCH. *Wheat grass for birds can be purchased online at http://www.naturechest.com/wheatgrass.html.
This recipe is guaranteed to satisfy the pickiest dog. We were advised to feed our puppy dry puppy chow. He would just nibble on it throughout the day. Consequently his outside needs were hard to predict. This recipe was the answer. Our mature dog suddenly developed an appetite for his food, too. Now, both dogs practically inhale this (I feed twice a day), we know when to let them outside, resulting in happier pets and parents! It also provides some extra calcium and protein. If your dog doesn't exercise much, you can use the lighter canned dog food, and the fat free yogurt.
