It is your kitty’s birthday and it is time to treat your cat with a delicious palate. And just then you are wondering what that special recipe could be. You would definitely want the treat to satiate the cat’s appetite and at the same time it should not make the cat sick. As for the deliciousness quotient of the food, your cat will respond towards it immediately. Well, in that case it is better to resort to some tried and already experimented recipes, rather than innovating newer ones. Let us see what options we have.
Recipe for Tuna (or Chicken) Treat
Take half can tuna and cut into small pieces. Take the mashed tuna into a large bowl and add half cup whole wheat flour and half cup dry, non fat powdered milk. Now mix the ingredients well and to it pour in quarter of cup water and add one table spoon vegetable oil (or cod liver oil). Mix well with a spoon. Now take one egg and beat it until the egg content gets foamy. Add this to the tuna mixture and mix properly till it becomes sticky dough. Then use your fingers and shape the dough into small marble sized balls and get them flattened. Next, place the dough balls on greased cookie sheets and bake it in the oven (already preheated to around 350 degrees) for about 10 minutes. Bake it until the flattened balls get golden brown colored. In between baking, keep the balls turning upside down and so on, such that all the sides are being baked equally. After baking is over, allow them to get cooled. Now serve your kitty with the special treat and let him raise the toast.
The same recipe can be used with chicken also in place of tuna. You just have to get half cup chicken cooked and chopped into fine pieces.
Recipe for Fruity Treat
This fruity treat is easy to prepare and healthy when served in small portions and occasionally.

In season you can add two ounces of berries too to the mixture. Now blend it into a mixture using a grinder. When it forms a liquid paste, you know your treat is ready to be served.
