Cat Friendly Christmas Cake Recipe Ideas

Been wondering how to make your cat feel like part of the holidays and want to make them feel appreciated, try making them a simple treat. It doesn’t take that long and your pet will end up feeling full and happy. Sometimes it can be hard to know what foods your pet cat can and cannot have. We know they like meat, but what else?

We often think about dogs liking cheese and make them treats or surprises containing it, but not as many people realize cats like cheese too!

Cheesey Kitty Cakes

*2/4 shredded cheddar cheese

*5 tablespoons grated parmesan

*1/4 cup plain yogurt

*3/5 cup all-purpose flour

*1/4 cup cornmeal

Mix yogurt and cheese then add the flour and cornmeal. Roll the dough into 1/4th inch balls and bake on a greased cookie sheet for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cat food Cake

Probably one of the simplest ‘cakes’ you can make for your cat. Use store bought cat food and any other little treats you’d like. Mold the cat food into the shape of your liking or just use the shape of the can and decorate it with some soft chewable treats. Your cat will love it, just don’t make it a regular thing or your furry friend will become sluggish and overweight.

While this next recipe isn’t exactly cake it’ll make your cat happy and look nice too. You can always use these as decoration for one of the other cakes. It can also be easier to use this recipe if you need a treat every now and again, as opposed to one large treat such as a cake.

Kitty Christmas Cookies

*1 cup whole wheat flour

*1 (6 ounce) can tuna in oil, undrained

*1 tablespoon vegetable oil or bacon grease

*1 egg

Mix all your ingredients and add a bit of water if it’s too thick. Roll out your dough to about 1/4th an inch thickness and cut out shapes like Christmas trees, angels, bells, and presents. Place about one inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until they’re firm. Allow them to cool before serving them!

The next recipe on the list could be hit or miss. It is suggested offering your cat some banana or berry before cooking to make sure they like the taste. You don’t want to finish only to realize your food is being rejected.

Meowsli

*1 tablespoon oats

*1/2 banana, mashed

*2 tablespoon plain yogurt

*1/2 cup orange juice

*1/4 apple, chopped

*2 ounces berries in season

Mix the oats and bananas well then add the yogurt, orange juice and apple. Add the apple soon after cutting to prevent browning. Mash the berries and add them into the mix. Serve to your cat in small portions (Ex. 1 tablespoon per cat). Cats like meat, that’s what they’re used to and too much fruit can cause diarrhea in an unprepared digestive system.

Making a holiday treat for your cat is simpler than you’d think. Take a few minutes to make one of these and your cat will surely thank you.
