Salmon, tuna, cheese, catnip, these simple DIY treats have them all! Treat your cat, or train them, whatever your intentions, your feline friends are going to love these!
Everyone loves a good treat now and then. Why should cats be any different? Homemade treats can make your kitty feel like they're getting all the love they deserve. Added bonus: No preservatives or additives, just like Kennel Kitchen's Meow Chow. You can use treats to reward your cat for good behaviour or use them to teach the cat new skills, or to keep their teeth clean.
You could also choose your cat's favourite foods to make these treats. All you need to do is make sure that your cats get enough moisture, so too many grain or cereal-based foods aren't particularly good for them.
Check out these 7 recipes that will make your cat very, very happy:
