Cats have a real sweet-tooth, but you have to be careful when giving them sweets, because an excessive amount of sugar can be really harmful to their health.
Cats have a sweet tooth just like dogs, but perhaps they show it a little less. However, sugar is dangerous for them as well, so, when it comes to giving them desserts, we must be very careful. That’s why we’re sharing these homemade dessert recipes for cats with you. Why? Because your cat deserves a treat, too.
Tuna cat cookies
If your cat loves tuna, these simple cookies will become their weakness! Remember that it is recommended to use tuna in water, since we will already add oil to the recipe. To combine the mixture you can simply use a spatula and a wooden spoon, or even a blender!
1 can of tuna
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon of fish oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon of catnip
Drain the tuna, crumble it well and mix with the egg in a big bowl.
Add the fish or olive oil and continue mixing to combine the ingredients.
Incorporate the catnip and, finally, the selected wholemeal flour, little by little and without stopping beating.
When you can, knead the mixture with your hands until you get a compact and homogeneous mass.
Let the dough stand for a few minutes and, meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 ° C.
Spread the cat cookies mixture with a roller and cut them into the shape that you like the most.
Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake them for 10-15 minutes, depending on the type of oven and the texture you want to give to the snacks.
When ready, remove the cat tuna biscuits from the oven, allow them to cool and offer them to your cat as a delicious treat.
Chicken cat cookies
As pointed out in the first section, chicken is one of the most recommended for making homemade recipes for cats, both for its high nutritional value and for its low intake of bad fats.
However, remember, you can always substitute turkey meat.
1 cup of cooked and cut chicken breast
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of plant milk or natural yogurt
Shred cooked chicken to make the cat cookies more easily.
If you use a blender or electric mixer, add to the chicken the olive or fish oil, egg and spoonful of milk or yogurt, and continue beating.
Once the above ingredients are integrated, add the flour little by little and continue to beat to combine and form a uniform mass.
Knead with your hands and spread the dough of the cat cookies with a roller to form them to your liking.
Preheat the oven to 180 ° C and, meanwhile, place the cookies on a tray lined with parchment or wax paper.
Bake the cat cookies for 10-15 minutes, or until you notice they are ready.
Remove them, let them cool down and give them to your furry friend.
Salmon cat cookies
Salmon is another favorite food of cats and therefore we could not miss the opportunity to prepare some delicious homemade biscuits with it. For this recipe we recommend to use oatmeal, since both this product and salmon help improve the skin and capillary health of your cat. However, if you do not have it you can also use any other type of whole meal. As for the main food, you have the option of using fresh or canned salmon, since in both cases it is necessary to crumble it to make the dough.
1 cup of whole wheat flour
50 grams of fresh or canned salmon
2 tablespoons of oil
Crumble the salmon as much as possible and, if you consider necessary, crush it a little. If canned salmon is used, it is not necessary to discard the liquid.
Mix the salmon with the egg and the oil until the ingredients are fully integrated.
Add the flour and incorporate it into the dough.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and prepare a tray lined with baking paper.
This dough is less compact than the previous ones, so you should place small portions with the help of a spoon on the baking sheet for salmon cat biscuits for about 10-15 minutes.
Remove, let cool and serve.
