New Treats

Mum got organized over this past weekend to try out these new treats. She got out the stuff from cupboard.
Measured the stuff and mixed it all together.
Dumping in the tuna and then used her hands to moosh it all together.
Used a roller thingy to make the mooshie ball into a flat moosh, the took the cutter thingy and made lots of small pieces.
Put them on a sheet and then into the hot-as-hell box.
Left side cooked, right side ready to go into the hot-as-hell box.
Here is the finished product, and how much it made.


They are OK, if mum puts them out we eat them, but we like our other treats better.

Mum here. I will try them again but do a few things different. First mix the tuna and water together first and get the tuna more broken up then mix with the dry ingredients. So the tuna chunks and flavor are in every piece. Also start with 3/4 cup of the flour and corn meal. Then add just enough of more of the flour/corn meal to make a good dough. Seems too heavy of dough. Also cut in smaller pieces, I was aiming for 1/4 to 1/2 inch size, really should be 1/8 to 1/4 inch size.

I've been trying to get my human to make kitty cookies for a long time now! Maybe this will help motivate her.

Simba said...

Our Mom didn't even realize this was possible! Maybe kitty tuna would be richer? Where did your Mum buy the mix?

Eric and Flynn said...

The cookies look very tasty but we think mum will stick with buying them.

We always give full credit to a human staff who tries to make the cats happier! That's a good first effort, and we're sure your next try will be even tastier.

That was a good kitchen experiment! And you are handsome posed next to the container Derby!

Willow said...

That is awesome of your Mom to try baking kitty treats. Mom does the next best thing for me when she found pre-made fresh treats.

The Island Cats said...

Our mom isn't much of a cook...she'd burn water! Haha! It was nice of your mom to make you some healthy treats.

We gotta give credit to Beins who even TRY stuff like that! And in fact our "treats" are regular Eukanuba chicken kibble.

But TBT says he may try this. He has a suggestion though. His immersion (wand-style) blender has a separate 1 cup attachment for blending small amounts of solid stuff. He usually uses that for making a garlic/ginger/onion/soy sauce paste for marinating meats, but thinks it would work great on the tuna.

Mark's Mews said...

A question. How long does this stuff stay edible? Does it need refrigeration? Can it be frozen?

Good effort on the part of your mum! My mum once made homemade cat treats for Fat Eric but they weren't very tasty and he wasn't very impressed. She has never tried making them for me.
