I came across the recipe and will have to try it. Don't forget your feline friends like to get into the Christmas spirit too! These treats are made of healthy and wholesome ingredients.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:
1 1/2 cup leftover turkey or chicken
2/3 cup cooked pumpkin or squash, mashed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. catnip
2 tsp. dried kelp
Mixing bowl

Molasses Cat Treats
1.Combine the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, soy flour, wheat germ and powdered milk in a large mixing bowl.
2. Beat the egg lightly with a fork and add it to the dry ingredients along with the milk, oil, catnip, shredded cheese and molasses. If the dough is too thick, add a few more drops of milk.
3. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it to a thickness of about 1/8 inch with a rolling pin.
4. Cut the dough into kitty-sized pieces and bake them for 20 minutes. Prop the door open and allow the molasses cat treats to cool in the oven before removing.
5. Store the cooled molasses cat treats in an airtight container.

Holiday Treats
1. Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
2. Combine the ingredients with your hands.
3. Roll the holiday treats into small balls and feed them to your kitty.
4. Store extra holiday treats in the refrigerator, or freeze them for later use.

What am I? Chop liver?

Of course not, I'm a handsome tuxedo cat, but chop liver was on the menu tonight. This was really easy to make and was absolutely delicious! I diced up some chicken livers, it only took a few. Then I heated a little corn oil in a pan and sauteed the liver for a few minutes until it browns, 2-3 minutes. After it browned I put it on a dish and garnished with some parsley greens. We do like greens in our food too, just check to make sure whatever kind of greens you pick are safe for cats.

This cat reminds me of Cher. Gypsies, Cats and thieves!! I’m not always a big fan of dress up time, but I do have to admit I love the extra attention it brings. Holiday time I usually don a santa hat and do silly pictures with my roommates, and then there’s the cowboy costume, but I’ll save that for next year. There’s now a Kitty wig eStore for all the glamour cats out there, how fun!

Here’s to all the sophistiCATS!

Great news! I made my first dessert and it was even better than catnip! (well, almost) They baked up fast so I only needed to have them in the oven for 6-7 minutes, be careful because if I would have left them in the oven longer they would have burned. Here are some pictures of the process and the result...

Nothing like a good, homemade dessert on a snowy day. People fail to realize that cat's like sweets too, the key is moderation. Here's the recipe I'm going to use to make Cat cookies. I'm so excited I can't wait to try them!
CAT COOKIES
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
-Combine 1/2 cup dry milk and 1/2 cup wheat germ; drizzle 1 teaspoon honey on top.
-Add 3 oz. beef baby food and stir until everything is well mixed.
-Form the mixture into balls; place them on an oiled cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork.
-Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
-Consistency should be fudgy.
-Store in a jar in the fridge; freeze if keeping more than a few days.

Do you think my fancy, gourmet cookies will come out this pretty?
