A lot of people either don’t realize, or forget that we have a cat. The reason is, that our cat Napoleon spends almost all day long sitting on the bar downstairs. He’s done that since we got Sooki 5 years ago. The scratches on our furniture, the half-eaten plants and the quick scampering early in the morning can attest to the fact that he has a nocturnal life throughout the house while we sleep. But during the day? On he bar, in his bed. He’s friendly when you pet him, and sometimes he’ll say hi, but for the most part he keeps to himself. So, given all that I can understand why he is forgotten by our guests. I didn’t forget about him this month. I made him some treats.
These Howl-oween Hairball Helpers were found from Rachael Ray, who knew she made cat food as well?
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 5 ounce can tuna in water
- 2 tablespoons canned pure pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon dried catnip
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . In a bowl, combine all the ingredients, mixing until a dough forms. Using floured hands, pinch off bite-size pieces of dough (about 1/4 tsp. each) and place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
- Bake until lightly browned and crisp, about 20 minutes. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.
Well, he loved the first one that we gave him. Then he bit the second one a little and left it alone. I’ll have to give him another one to see if these are a hit or not. Otherwise I have made another treat for the dog.
