Make kitty cookies for Thanksgiving

This week many will spend extra time in the kitchen. If you have a cat, you might want to make an extra Thanksgiving treat for them as well. It's better to have a special treat for kitty than to just hand out food from the dinner table.

These cookies contain a lot of ingredients, but it's worth the effort, because most cats love them.

You need:

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons of wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup of soy flour
  • 1/3 cup of powdered milk
  • 1 tablespoon kelp
  • 1/2 teaspoon bonemeal
  • 1 teaspoon dried and crushed catnip leaves
  • 1 tablespoon molasses (unsulfured)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/3 cup water or catwalk

What to do:

Mix all the dry ingredients. Add molasses, egg, oil, and milk/water. Roll out the dough flat and cut it into narrow strips. Bake on an oiled cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 350 F. 

Once baked, you can break the strips into small pieces.

  1. Not often we see recipes for cat treats! I wonder if they make teeny tiny cookie cutters???

    1. Oh that would be cute! Maybe something in the children's department?
