Making homemade cat and pet treats is so much fun. We love making treats for our cats. We have 4 ragdoll cats and they are all pretty adventurous with food.
We love DIY projects and I look at making pet treats as a fun DIY project for the entire family. The kids can get involved in making them which is so fun.
I love coming up with fun recipes my cats can have. Let’s be honest, dogs get all the love when it comes to treats. So, this girl likes to focus on making treats for cats too.
This time I combined 9Lives Protein Plus Cat Food with one simple healthy ingredient, bananas. Our cats LOVE banana as a treat. One of ours is obsessed with banana.
Most cats love banana and in small doses it’s good for them. I used a tiny heart fudge mold for this recipe so each treat was small enough to be a treat and not a whole meal.
Our cats gobble them up. I made 3 different versions. One had the cat food on the bottom, one had it on the top and one was banana only. The youngest kitten gets banana only.
The adult cats get the treats with cat food in it. They love them and can’t wait when I pop the treats out of the mold. I love spoiling them with homemade treats.
They are super easy to make. You just blend the bananas and pour them into a candy mold. Then you simply freeze them with or without cat food. It’s seriously THAT easy.
Yes, they are dog-friendly too. We have two pups who want in on the banana action so I always make puppy-friendly versions when I make these too. It’s how we roll.
All of our pets are spoiled rotten and I’m okay with that. In fact, I’m completely cool with it. We love them so much. They are our family and we treat them as such.
We swung by Walmart to pick up a couple of bags of 9Lives Protein Plus Cat Food before starting this project. We love shopping there for pet supplies, among everything else.
My Mom was a huge pet lover. She gave me my first kitten for my birthday as a young girl. She just loved the Morris commercials and thought he was the cutest thing, ever.
His personality is just the best. We used to go nuts for the aquarium commercial. My Mom was partial to the beach commercial and my Dad loved the nap time commercial.
Morris has embraced social media over the years. Did you know he’s on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook? True story. I love a cat who is willing to grow with the times.
Our one cat, Spike, reminds me so much of Morris. Not with his appearance but his attitude. He has a big sassy personality and makes us laugh on a daily basis.
My life would not be the same without all my pets. We have 4 cats, 2 pups, and 2 horses. We love them all so much. Since I work from home they’re my constant companions.
