Dry food cookies

For unbelievably easy kitty cookies, all you need is 2 cups of your fur baby’s dry food.

  1. To turn the dry food into cookies, add 2 cups to a blender until it’s ground into a powder.

  2. Pour the powder into a mixing bowl and add 1 to 1 ¼ cups of water.

  3. Stir until it forms a dough-like consistency.

  4. Shape the dough into individual balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper.

  5. Next, flatten the balls with the back of a spoon (just beware that it won’t behave the way traditional cookie dough does!) and pop in the oven for approximately 30 minutes at 180 degrees.

  6. These can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, but not frozen.

Salmon and sweet potato bites

You’ll need:

400g salmon cooked/tinned

1 ½ cups sweet potato, baked and mashed

1 ½ cups rolled oats

Silicone mould for the freezer – you could use an ice cube tray or get hold of a mould with fun shapes (such as fish!).

  1. Cut salmon into small pieces, then combine with sweet potato in a large bowl.

  2. Using a food processor, pulse together the oats and parsley until finely ground, then mix into the salmon and sweet potato mixture.

  3. Spoon the mixture into a mould and pop in the freezer for a few hours.

Bite-sized baked wet food

All you need for this is a can of your cat’s favourite wet food. 

  1. Simply open the can and shake the loaf of cat food out.

  2. Cut it into slices about half a centimetre thick, then cut these into bite-sized pieces. 

  3. Put the pieces onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and pop in the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees.

Treats can then be stored in the fridge for up to a week but aren’t suitable for freezing.

Human food your cat can enjoy (in moderation!)

Chicken balls

You'll need:

1/2 cup chicken mince (human grade!)

1/3 cup oat flour

  1. Stir ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

  2. Spray a non-stick baking sheet.

  3. Roll ingredients into balls and place on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake at 175°C for 12-15 minutes and allow to cool before serving.
