    Mille®'s Note:

    My human gave me a Blue Ribbon "Good Dawg!" Award for finding this kitty recipe on the Woofernet. I made these miniature cat d'oeuvres for Gigi (a small, black creature with whiskers who acts like she owns our house) and she liked them a lot.

      Sorry, but these didn't work at all for our household. After making them as per the directions, they would not hold together -- there seemed to be way too many bread crumbs in relation to the other ingredients. After packing them tightly in our hands to try to keep them together, we were able to get them in the oven to bake. We allowed them to cool completely, but they were still very crumbly. We have two cats -- both with very different tastes and dispositions -- but neither one would touch these. One walked away without eating it -- the other one crumbled it apart and tried tasting different parts of it, but never did eat it and they left both of the crumbled treats on the floor. Could it be that there should have been some of the mackeral oil incorporated into the balls? If you have any suggestions I would be more than happy to give these another try and re-review -- I would love to have some healthy homemade treats for my cats! Thanks.

      Dear Mr. Miller- My well-trained human is writing this for me. Thank you very much for this delicious recipe. I love brewer's yeast, so I made sure she included it in the recipe. The only change we will make next time is to make them a little bigger, about 1/2t maybe. I thought the 1/4t was a little small. (The neighbor's dogs say I have a big mouth, but I don't think this is what they are talking about.)Again, thank you for sharing this delicious recipe, SoSo Meador
