Foodie Friday: Kitty Tuna Pop Recipe

This Foodie Friday recipe is for kitty treats. My cats love them! We found this recipe in an e-book we purchased. You want to make sure to only give this as an occasional treat, because tuna has higher levels of mercury in it than other fish. Be sure to get only the tuna packed in water, as oil is bad for the cats.

Tuna Pops

Drain liquid from tuna packed in spring water. Freeze
liquid in small ice cube trays (cocktail ice cube trays
work nicely, as well as little square pill boxes available
at most drug stores - only fill these half full). Give no
more than 2 cubes at 1 time as a treat. Reuse your can
of drained tuna by placing in it an airtight container
and covering with filtered water overnight for a second
batch of tuna-pop water.

For our cat friends, Skylar is hosting a sit-down roleplay "dinner" every Saturday at his Catster restaurant. You don't need to be a Catster member to participate; just join with your e-mail address. It's from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm Pacific time.

Now this is creative. Only problem is, my cat plays with ice cubes! Wonder if he's sit and just eat one? Think we'll have to try...Nancy

What a cute idea. And thanks for letting people know about "moderation in all things" lol. I work for a vet, and obesity is a huge problem with all of our little fur babies. I'm going to print this out and take it to work with me. We have alot of clients who love to cook for their pets, and this is an easy one. Kathy

Oh, this is a neat idea. I will have to share with my SILs as both of them have kitties. Mine have gone over the Rainbow Bridge, but they would have loved these, too! What a clever idea!

Happy FF on Saturday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

No kitties in this house, but a couple of little canines. Thank you for reminding me that they deserve homemade treats on occasion, too!
