Recipe by AZ Food Critic

I am not a cat owner, but I do know that the little ones love their treats, it is so hard to find good wholesome treats for our pets, even more so, to find homemade treats...I created this favorite with that in mind. Easy to make and can be frozen if made in large batches.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray with a nonstick cooking spray or use parchment paper on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl, combine chicken, flour, oats, egg and catnip (if using).
  3. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together, until fully incorporated and smooth. (Add more flour if needed).
  4. Make 1 to 2 inche round balls, then, shape them into ovals. Pinch the end to create a pointed nose. Place in rows, on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Cut thin disks out of 2 to 3 baby carrots, then cut each one in half, and then cut them in half again, to give you 4 small wedges from each baby carrot disk (for the mouse ears).
  6. Use 2 small wedges on each mouse, to create 2 ears for the mouse, repeat until they all have 2 ears, (pictured).
  7. Using the remaining baby carrots, slice 36 thin (lengthwise) strips, to use for the mice tails. Insert the tails firmly into the back of each mouse treat. Using a toothpick, insert two holes for the mouse eyes.
  8. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven.
  9. Let cool completely. Store in the refrigerator covered, for up to 2 weeks, or can be frozen in an air tight container for several months.
  10. Makes: 36 mice treats.
