Making homemade cat treats or people treats do you think there a difference?
When you think about it, many of us treat our pets the same way we treat our children.
Right?…We make sure they get the proper health care, we give them a nice house to live in, we buy them toys to play with, and we try to feed them a nutritious diet.
Yet... what about the snacks and treats they eat?
Feeding our kitties homemade treats are fun, easy and inexpensive to make.
If you're a parent, we're sure you'd rather have your children eat snacks like fruit instead of potato chips…In other words,… you want your kids to eat healthy treats, not junk food.
Well, if that is so you are probably feeling the same way about your cat.
Commercial treats are convenient and your cat probably loves them, but she'll be better off if you give her healthy, homemade cat treats instead of the feline equivalent of junk food.
Making your own feline yummies might be a little more work than buying commercial treats, but you also get some…
Once you have the right ingredients and a good recipe or two, organic or all-natural, preservative-free homemade cat treats are ever-so-easy to make. Best of all, your cat will absolutely love these recipes for homemade cat treats!

This first recipe for natural cat treats sounds good enough to tempt any human, much less any cat…
Cheese Treats au Naturel (makes about two dozen)
You'll need these ingredients (remember, making them organic pet treats if possible)
While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine all the ingredients into dough (add a touch of water if needed). Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to ¼ inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 25 minutes on a greased cookie sheet.

Chicken Cookies (makes about 18)
While your oven is preheating to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combine the chicken, broth and margarine, then add the cornmeal and flour. Knead the dough into a ball and then roll it out to ¼ inch. Cut into one-inch pieces and bake for 20 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
What could be simpler? Naturally, the main part of your cat's diet won't consist of organic pet treats. But that doesn't mean natural cat treats shouldn't be healthy.
Organic and natural homemade cat treats are simply the best, and as you can see, they're really easy and inexpensive to make!
Have fun! And enjoy the purrrrrrrs of delight from you feline companion!
