As the temperature rises, your cat deserves a frosty treat. Making frozen cat treats at home is quick and easy – you probably already have the ingredients for at least one of these recipes. If you’re lucky, your cat might even give you a bite!
Tasty Tuna Treats
Open up a can of water-packed tuna and dump it into your food processor. Add a half cup of water then blend until it’s nice and smooth, adding more water as needed to get the desired consistency. Pour the liquid into silicone ice cube trays and freeze for a couple of hours. When the treats are frozen, pop them out of the tray and store in a freezer bag. You can also try this recipe with canned salmon.
Frozen Paté Cubes
Take a can of your cat’s favorite pate-style wet food and scoop it out into a mixing bowl. Stir in a few of your cat’s favorite soft treats or a sprinkle of dried catnip. Spoon the mixture into small paper cups or into a silicone ice cube tray and freeze until solid. Pop the treats out the tray or peel away the paper to serve the frozen treat.
Frozen Goat’s Milk Treats
Goat’s milk is loaded with digestive enzymes and probiotics, making it a nourishing addition to your cat’s diet and it freezes well as a summer treat. Mix up a few packets Instant Goat’s Milk according to the directions then pour into small silicone molds. Freeze the goat’s milk until solid then pop the treats out to serve and store the extras in a freezer bag.
Frozen Yogurt Drops
For cats who tolerate dairy, these frozen yogurt drops are a quick and easy treat to prepare. Take a container of Greek yogurt and stir in some smooth canned cat food (you may need to puree it in the food processor for it to work). Spoon the mixture into a plastic bag and snip off the tip. From there, just squeeze little drops of the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid.
