With the 2007 pet food recalls still a recent memory, cat owners are seeking sources of healthy pet food and treats featuring natural ingredients. For some, that includes making their own cat food and treats.
Homemade cat treats are easy to make and there’s no shortage of cat treat recipes online and in cookbooks if you decide to try it.
This book, The Kitty Treats Cookbook, by Michele Bledsoe, is a very popular choice.
Most cat treats are not inherently good or bad for your cat, they just need to be used in moderation. Treats can be used to reward cats after pills are given, or help in behavior modification. You can train your cat to perform tricks using treats as a lure.
There are none, except it may be hard to find. And it would be a drag to get a copy that doesn’t have the fish cookie cutter, which does happen.
This book is a great followup to the doggybone cookbook, my dog craves the bones from those recipes. I was excited to hear that Bledsoe had put out a book for cats.
My three cats who are very fussy loved the treats, they each had their own favorites. It's always nice to see a new and interesting product come out from the pet industry, that is not the same old tired products. Good luck to Michele with this new book.
My kitty 'PUFF' and i, probably like most other pet owners, have a special loving relationship.
When i first made some of these treats from the books recipes, 'PUFF' couldn't seem to get enough of them!!! She loved 'em!! but even more important to me was that i was putting some of myself into each and every treat she ate and enjoyed. Somehow I feel she knows there's some of me in every one.
Maybe that's why she loves them more than any i ever bought for her. i know any pet owner will get so much more satisfaction from making and feeding these home made treats to their cats than simply going out and buying the commercial kind.
