Every since I posted this adorable photo of Fred Yoder's dog, Duncan, the cats have been up in arms. They say they feel neglected. (You know how narcissistic cats can be, it's all about them.)You can read the post about Duncan and the home-made doggie treats if you missed it the first time around.
Maybe the cats have a point. After all, so many cozy writers feature cats in their books, (I have two cats, Barney and Scout in NIGHTMARES CAN BE MURDER) and by now, everyone probably knows I have 8 "real" cats in my life. So I was happy when Linda Turpin solved the problem and gave me a cool recipe for cat treats.
Ingredients: one cup cornmeal, one cup flour, 1/3 cup water. one 6 oz can undrained tuna. Pre-heat oven to 350. It's easy if you use your hands.
Directions: Mix all ingredients very well. Roll out to 1/4" thickness and cut into "treat-sized" piece. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 20 minutes.
Pictured above are two of Lynda's adorable fosters, Oliver and Olivia. They're chatting with Santa and I bet they're asking for a "forever" home this Christmas. Lynda volunteers at a wonderful organization called Lapcats. They do an amazing job and if anyone wants to send them a little gift (or two!) I know they'd appreciate it.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to you and your pets!
