We all loved the color purple. We all showed up at a BarkWorld conference wearing purple. We had to get our photos together because everyone had on purple shoes or scarves but ma was in a full purple outfit. She is the one with all the teeth showing. BOL!
SUGAR adored bananas. She ate one every day and many of her recipes included fruits, especially bananas. Unfortunately none of us like bananas except ma but I wanted to participate in honor of SUGAR. She was so nice to me and I always enjoyed hanging out with her at the conferences we attended together.
My big poodle brain had to think about what I could help make to be able to join this blog hop. I know many of my fellow writers will have some wonderful recipes for dogs and I hope you check them out. I normally do chickyum treats but I didn't have any chickyum defrosted and I ate all my dinner. NO leftover chickyum for recipes.
I finally decided that I would make kitty treats.
These are frozen treats that your kitties may love and your dogs may like them too. They are the easiest things to make; even a poodle can make them ;)
2-4 Tuna packages
*Canned tuna may work also*
water (enough to make tuna slightly watery)
First, you need a silicone tray to put them in. Any cute pattern can help.
We had a heart shaped silicone tray and one with cats. These are ice cube trays but we use them for everything but ice. Since this was the first time we made these treats we made a very small batch and chose the cats for the treats.
Empty the tuna in a food processor. Add enough water to make tuna slightly watery but not runny. If you don't have a food processor, you can use a spoon to mash the tuna. (We actually found it was easier for small batches to use the spoon)
Add olive or salmon oil to the tray before putting in the batter. Ma used a light coating of the salmon paste that prevents hairballs. Pour batter into the tray. Fill as much as you can without overfilling.
The next test was on the cats.
Would they like them?
Daedae touched the treat. He pushed it around, he picked it up and set it down.
After he played with his treat for a little bit, he licked it. He licked it some more and a little more. He started chewing his treat and before long, it was gone. He asked for another one but since it was bedtime, he will have to wait.
So there you have it..Frozen catsicle treats. Our kitties really like them.
Do you think your cats would like them?
I hope you will join me as I pray for SUGAR's parents. They need prayers for guidance and acceptance. This was an unexpected death and my heart is breaking for them. I sure am going to miss seeing her at conferences and seeing her online. She had a wonderful long life. I love you SUGAR and always will.
