As pet owners, we all love to celebrate our fur babies’ birthdays with some special treats. While there are plenty of commercially available treats and cakes for cats, most of them are loaded with unhealthy ingredients that can harm your feline friend’s health in the long run.
If you want to ensure that your cat has a healthy and delicious birthday cake, then making one at home is the best way to go. And don’t worry, it’s much easier than you think!
Here is a recipe for a healthy cake that your cat will love:
- 1 cup canned tuna (drained)
- 1/4 cup cooked brown rice
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon catnip (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a small cake pan with olive oil.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the tuna, brown rice, oatmeal, egg, and olive oil.
- Mix the ingredients well until they are fully combined.
- Add the catnip (optional) and mix again.
- Pour the mixture into the greased cake pan and smooth it out evenly.
- Bake the cake for 15-20 minutes or until it is golden brown on top.
- Let the cake cool down completely before serving it to your cat.
Your cat’s healthy and delicious birthday cake is ready! You can decorate it with some cat-friendly toppings such as whipped cream made from unsweetened coconut milk or some fresh catnip leaves.
This cake is a great way to show your cat how much you love them while also providing them with a healthy and nutritious treat. The tuna provides your cat with high-quality protein while the brown rice and oatmeal offer essential vitamins and minerals. Plus, the catnip is a great way to make the cake even more irresistible to your feline friend!
Remember, moderation is key when it comes to treats for your cat. While this cake is healthy and nutritious, it should still be given in moderation and as part of a balanced diet. Happy baking and happy birthday to your furry friend!
