DIY: How to Make Your Own Cat Treats
Budget-friendly and delicious.
Every kitty deserves a tasty little treat, especially when you’re trying out clicker training. But buying all those treats can add up. We’ve got ways for you to make your own cat treats, right in your own kitchen — without burning out your wallet.
But first things first: Make sure you consult our article about human foods that are safe for cats.
- Make treats that’ll last weeks. If you’ve got salmon, eggs
andflour, then you’ve got all of the ingredients you need to make delicious treats for your furball. These 3 ingredient salmon cat treats are super easy to whip up and dish out to your cat. Plus, you can safely store your leftovers in an airtight container and keep doling out the treats for weeks.
- Have leftover human food? Instead of tossing your leftovers, you may be able to feed them to your feline friend. Cats love to eat grains — such as brown rice, barley
andwheat berries — as long as the grains are mashed up first. Cats also enjoy cheese and, of course, any variety of fish. So, before you toss your takeout, save the best bits for your fuzzball as a special treat.
- Let the goodies keep rolling. Don’t toss your toilet paper rolls. Instead, tuck treats into these cardboard cylinders. Just make sure you fold down one end (not both, otherwise your furball won’t be able to claw her way to the treats!) of the cardboard so she can play with one end and take the treat out of the other end. This engages Kitty’s hunting instincts and rewards her at the same time.
