Simple Cat Treats - Chicken & Sardines Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 can no salt added Chicken or 1 can plain, no oil added Sardines
  • 1 tbsp chopped Parsley
  • 1 tbsp dried Catnip
  • 1 tbsp Brewers Yeast
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour, plus extra flour for rolling
  • 1 Whole Egg

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 335°F.
  2. Prepare 1 or 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Or use a non-stick baking pan.
  3. Measure out your ingredients.
  4. Save the liquid from the canned chicken or sardines, to use, if the mixture is too dry.
  5. Mix all of the dry ingredients together, in a small bowl.
  6. Break up the chicken or the sardines.
  7. Put all ingredients in a food processor.
  8. Pulse in food processor, until mixed and a ball starts forming.
  9. (You can also mix this by hand, it will just take a little longer. MIx all the ingredients, without the egg and flour, to break up everything as much as possible. Then add the egg and flour, just to bring mixture together. Then continue to the next step.)
  10. No need, to knead the mixture, this is not bread.
  11. Divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces.
  12. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece until it is approximately 1/8 inch in thickness.
  13. Cut out in any shape you desire or use a cookie cutter. The size is your choice.
  14. Repeat with the remaining 3 pieces.
  15. Place on baking sheets, so treats are not touching.
  16. Bake for around 40 minutes. Flipping halfway through to make sure they bake evenly on both sides. Oven time will vary. Watch them.
  17. You do not want the treats to be brick hard. As they cool they will harden a little more.
  18. If they still feel damp or have a damp spot, put them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
  19. Cool completely and keep in an airtight container.

~My first trip for the year to Stanley Park was amazing! I was exhausted by the end of my trip, but it was worth it! I'm hoping future visits will allow me to see more wildlife, while keeping my distance. I did get to sit with some ducks and geese. Patience like the Buddha, is what it took. I just sat on a rock, by a pond and let them do their thing. The geese actually led their goslings closer to me, grooming and taking naps. (You can see a few pictures here.)

~I also found a couple of good spots, that had a ton of bees. The process to capture them took a lot of patience but I'm getting better at patience with age. I'll have more chances to catch them, doing their work over the next few months, while continuing to improve my photography. I love nature!
