  • I have 3 cats, sorry, not one of them ate this. Although, I also have 3 dogs who cobbled them up!

  • I liked your recipe and iam pretty shure my cat loved it, thanks 4 putting it on the website!

  • This is one of the better sounding cat treats I've found after spending more time than I care to admit searching the Internet for cat treat recipes. I used food aisle mackerel (by Chicken of the Sea), lightly toasted fresh bread crumbs, added the brewer's yeast and tossed in some finely chopped, fresh parsley for fresh breath along with the other ingredients. The sample treat that I tasted reminded me of crab cakes (substituting mackerel). Unfortunately, my 2 cats didn't give them a "paws up." One ate a couple, the other just batted them across the floor. My cats don't eat a lot of fish, and prefer chicken or beef, which may be part of the problem. I'm discouraged by the lack of cat treat recipes online, compared to the number of dog treat recipes. In fact, it's purrrrfectly appalling! The ones I have found frequently contain ingredients I wouldn't want to add. For example, one recipe includes powdered and fresh milk. A lot of cats (including my own) are lactose intolerant.

  • My cats loved this recipe, however I found it very tedious dropping dough into bite size pieces, next time I am going to try just rolling it out and cutting it up with a knife before cooking. Thank you for the recipe.
