Treat your feline friend on National Cat Day

Posted by Tiger. November 26th 2015.

Did you know that today – October 29 – is National Cat Day? The annual event, founded by pet expert Colleen Paige, is a celebration of all things cats this year celebrates its 10th anniversary.

National Cat Day organisers have provided a list of ways you can celebrate, ranging from adopting a cat to commissioning a painting of your pet.

Other suggestions include pampering your pet with a grooming session and a massage, or making a sunbathing spot in a window for your cat to enjoy.

They also suggest baking a cat cake for your pet to enjoy on the big day. Here are two simple cat cake recipes for you to try:

 

Cats love tasty tuna treats in all shapes and sizes

Tantalising Tuna Treat

You will need:

  • Flour
  • 1 large egg (separate the white)
  • Grated cheddar
  • 1/2 tin of tuna
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cooked shrimp for garnish


Method:

Preheat your oven to 175C / 350F / Gas Mark 4.

Add half the tin of tuna into a bowl along with 1 ½ tablespoons of flour, a pinch of shredded cheese and the separated egg white and mix.

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or oil to prevent sticking and use the mixture to fill two of the spaces.

Place in the oven for 15 minutes and prepare the shrimp by rinsing and removing the tail.

Remove the cake from the oven and place upside down on a plate to cool.

Add the shrimp to decorate and serve to your feline friend.

DISCLAIMER: Please remember that some foods just don’t agree with our four-legged friends and you don’t really want Fido feeling funny or Princess getting a poorly tummy! For example, cheese can be too heavy for some dogs. You know your pet better than anyone, so there really is no one better to decide what your dog can or can’t eat. If you aren’t sure though, seek the advice of a vet or pet professional.
