Real Food for Cats: Mmmm Meaty Treats

These cookies smelled great baking. In a home taste test, Miss Samantha T. Kitty, wolfed it down while it was still a bit warm; Sneakers was totally indifferent.

  • 1/2 cup wheat germ

  • 1/2 cup dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 small (2.5-ounce) jar beef puree baby food

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

With a wooden spoon, stir together the wheat germ, dry milk and honey in a small mixing bowl. Add the beef puree and stir until thoroughly mixed. (Use a fork and blend as you would meatloaf. You'll end up with a crumbly yet sticky dough.)

Form the mixture into small balls (we made our slightly smaller than 1 inch in diameter). Place the balls on a greased cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork. (Because the dough was so sticky, we sprayed the bottom of the fork with nonstick cooking spray.) Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

Cool before serving. Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes 8 to 10 servings (18 1-inch cookies).
