  1. The sun did not come out, 
    It was too wet to play
    So we stayed in the house 
    All that cold, damp, wet day.

    I have a thought, I said
    I know what we can do!
    Let's make some Pet Treats*
    And they'll all be for You!

    Ingredients:

    1 6 oz. can pink salmon or tuna, packed in water, no salt added, drained
    1 cup gluten-free oat flour
    1 large egg
    2 tablespoons homemade chicken bone broth, or 2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 heaping tablespoon dried catnip (can be omitted for dog treats)




    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. In a food processor, add the fish, flour, egg, broth or oil, and catnip.

    2. Pulse until it all comes together in a paste.

    3. Roll 1/2 teaspoon balls to place on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork.

    4. Bake cookies for about 12 - 15 minutes, until they are slightly browned and dry on top.

    5. Let cool. To serve: for cats, crumble treat into wet food and mix; for dogs, give as you would any treat.

    Store in airtight container in fridge for up to a week.
