First, we’d like to thank everyone for all the love and support you gave Mom after our post last week (and the compassion for our situation). She is doing better.
We would also like to thank everyone for the unwavering support of our dislike of the lentil (That came pretty much from the feline population. There were a few humans who seem to enjoy eating them.)
We found a couple of recipes for Mom to make for us when she’s back up to speed.
- 1 (4 oz.) can of tuna in spring water, drained and flaked
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon dried catnip
- 1 large egg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until you get a smooth, thick dough.
- Form dough into 1/4-teaspoon balls (about 80 of them).
- Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten slightly
- Bake about 15 minutes (until crispy golden)
- Cool completely before serving.
- May be stored in an airtight container for up to a week or frozen
- 1/4 cup chicken liver
- 1/2 cup mixed chicken gizzard and heart
- 2 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- Boil the chicken parts until tender.
- Set the liquid aside and chop up the meat.
- Mix the liquid with the flour, meat, and salt.
- Cook over low heat until the gravy thickens.
- The gravy can either be pureed or left chunky.
We’re including this last one because the site says that cats love them. Mom hates pumpkin, so we’ve never tried it.
- 1 1/4 cups of oat flour, divided
- 5 ounces of drained salmon
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Break up the salmon with a fork or chopper.
- Combine 1 cup of flour, salmon, egg, and pumpkin in a bowl using a spoon or electric mixer
- Place the dough on the baking sheet, sprinkle with the remaining flour, and press down to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Prick all over with a fork.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and cut into small pieces with a pizza or pastry cutter.
- Spread the bits out and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes (until firm).
- Let cool completely.
- Store in an air-tight container for a week or freeze to store longer.
Or we could ask for a pet.

Glad to hear your mom is better, kitties! Those homemade cat treats sound good to our cats!
Thank you. We’re waiting for the gravy. It can probably improve some of the human sib’s dishes.
Some cats like pumpkin, it is good to help with constipation. I hope your mom is better soon. XO
Thank you. Mom says that she isn’t going to feed us anything that will make us poop more (mol)
i might try to make one of those kitty snacks!
Hope they taste as good as they sound
Glad you nursed her back to health! Good going. Maybe she will reward you with that pet fish. What fun!

Lentils are creepy but that is not the creepiest thing here! In Victorian times cats and kittens were deliberately killed and stuffed to make “charming” family photo scenes mimicking humans, and the photos were very popular and sold well. The kitten with the bowl you posted is typical of them from the turn of the century. On the lighter side, that goldfish is the bowl looks worried, and he needs a larger bowl!
OMC! I am so sorry! I had no idea about the picture.
Most people don’t. That’s why I said something. I used to collect old photos and saw a lot of them. they look cute until you know how they were made. Maybe I should blog the subject but it is gruesome!
Thank you for passing it along.
