How to Make Cat Treats

How to Make Cat Treats

If you really like baking almost anything, you can also make your cats happy by making some treats for them. How to make cat treats follows the same procedure as baking flavored bread or cookies, but you can make them a little softer if your cat prefers chewy food stuff – or crispier if they are into dry cat foods. The difference is the recipe itself. Add a bit more water to get the appropriate consistency for the cat treat mixture for the softer version. Follow these basic steps:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees if you believe that you have the stock needed. Get hold of the usual fresh tuna pieces, which should be about 6 ounces; canned tuna in water, which is around ¼ cup; some chopped and cooked egg whites; ¼ cup of cornmeal; and ½ cup of flour, preferably whole wheat.

  2. If you want to make cheesy treats, try 3 parts cup white flour, 3 parts cup cheddar cheese – preferably shredded, some Parmesan cheese, 1 part plain yogurt, and 1 part cornmeal. You can also bake cookies for your cats using 1 cup of flour, ¼ cup of whole wheat, a small amount of wheat germ, not more than 3 tablespoons of catnip, 1/3 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and finally 1 tablespoon of molasses and of course one piece of egg.

  3. Use a mixing bowl that is spacious enough to accommodate all the ingredients together. After mixing, try to knead a small part if it can already be molded into dough. Add the ingredients that give flavor, like tuna, eggs and cornmeal, last. Roll into small balls, thick enough when flattened. ¼ inch thick dough is sufficient.

  4. Lay the flattened dough flat on the table. Use a wax paper to cover the surface and to avoid the dough from sticking on the table. Sprinkle some flour on the surface of your working area to prevent the dough from sticking onto it.

  5. You can use a sharp knife or a dough cutter depending on the shape and size you envisioned. You can follow the cube-like shapes of canned cat treats or the capsule-like form – as long as you avoid making them too big for the cats to take.

  6. Grease the baking sheet and place the shaped components of the raw cat treats on it. Put them into the pre-heated oven for no more than 15 minutes for the cookies, and no more than 30 minutes for the softer bread type. Expect at least 50 pieces or more from the specified amount of ingredients used.

  7. When done, allow them to cool down by removing the baking pan from the oven. Once they reach room temperature, transfer them into a sealable container. Air-tight containers can preserve the home baked cat treats longer.

The key to coming up with a good cat treat for your hairy family members is in how you formulate the recipe – because the secret on how to make cat treats is in the flavor. This should not be difficult because you may already know what appeals to them most.
