Don't Forget The Animals

 I love my two cats as much as children. Sometimes, however, I forget to spoil them for long periods of time.  This is very much regretful, especially because they bring me so much joy, and show me so much love.  Unlike children cats (usually) do not remind, or hint, that they would like, or deserve a treat.  So here is a friendly reminder, on behalf of your beloved pet, that perhaps they deserve a little something special as soon as possible!

  • 1 jar (2-1/2ounces) strained ham baby food
  • 5/8 cup wheat germ
  • 5/8 cup non-fat milk powder
  • 1 egg, beaten


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with vegetable oil spray. Mix baby food, wheat germ, milk powder, and egg in medium bowl. Drop by 1/2 teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. Store baked treats in airtight container or plastic bag and place in refrigerator or freezer.

MAKES 2-1/2 to 3 dozen

*NOTE: Beef or chicken baby food may be substituted for ham baby food.


  1. I don't know why I never thought of making cat treats, that is such a good idea. Do you think you could replace the ham with canned tuna?

  2. hmmm, i don't know, but would assume so if you drained it. My cats adore tuna, I just might give that a go.
