Your cat is sure to love these tasty treats. Of course, if your cat cannot eat turkey, you may substitute it for any other ground meat.
- 1/2 Pound ground turkey
- 1/2 Cup grated carrots
- 1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 Cup finely crushed crackers
- 1/4 Cup powdered milk
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a cookie sheet/baking pan with olive oil.
2. Using your hands as you would when making meatloaf, mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
3. Make the meatballs about the size of golf balls, and arrange them on a baking pan/cookie sheet.
4. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the balls are nicely browned and reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
5. Cool before serving. Freeze the leftover balls and reheat in microwave as needed. You may chop them up before serving them to your cat.
Here is a great recipe for a tasty meat-cake treat for your kitty!
- 1 lb. of calf or pork liver ( you can use chicken liver if you cannot find pork or calf liver)
- 1 cup of flour (if your kitty has allergies to gluten, 3/4 cup of Rice Flour should work)
- 1/2 cup corn meal (I know I don’t advocate using corn anything, but for a treat, once in a while, corn is all right).
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Grease a cookie sheet (I use olive oil to grease anything I make for Isis).
3. Pour all ingredients into a processor and mix well. If you don’t have one, use a large mixing bowl and combine until well mixed.
4. Bake for 20 minutes. It is done when it no longer looks pink.
5. Once cool, cut into pieces that will be edible for your kitty. Save the rest in a ziplock bag in the fridge for about a week.
*Just a sidenote, today (August 17th) is National Black Cat Appreciation/Awareness Day. I cannot say enough about it; adopting Isis has been one of the best things that has happened to me. The recipe above would be great to make in celebration of our black cats! I will be making this for Isis.
This is a great treat for any cat who loves a bit of variety in their diet.
- 1/2 cup Ground Beef (I use lean ground, if you have more than one cat, you may want to use more. Of course you can use chicken, or pork or fish as well, as long as it is ground up or minced very fine).
- 3 Tablespoons of broth (chicken or beef, or veggie broth, whatever will work for your cat)
- 2 Tablespoons of COOKED oatmeal (you can buy gluten free oats if your cat has a gluten allergy)
- 1 teaspoon Dried Grass Powder (This can be found at your local Pet Shop or Supermarket)
- 1/4 cup of your cat’s favorite vegetable. Carrots are popular or pumpkin (which I use, I know it is technically a fruit, but I consider it a vegetable) Mince it up or put it in a blender, whichever you prefer.
- Cook the beef or chicken or pork or fish until just done, it’s best not to overcook as it might not work well in this application.
- Pour broth on the meat.
- Add in the vegetable and mix well, using a fork to kind of mash it in together with the meat. It will probably start to look like canned cat food.
- Once that is mixed well, add the dried grass powder. Mix in well.
- Finally add the oatmeal into the mix and make it into a bit of a firmer wet food mixture. You can then scoop out little portions with a melon baller or a small scoop. I make these about the size of a quarter. You can mix them into little balls or however you want to feed them to your cat.
- Store the rest in the refrigerator in an air tight container for about a week. If you would like, you can freeze any leftovers.
