- Can of tuna in water or salmon
- 1/2 glass of water
- Ice molds
To prepare the seafood delight for the feline, put the tuna with its water, the latter is useful both for maintaining the taste of the tuna and for freezing, with 1/2 glass of water and whisk, until obtaining a sort of mashed tuna.
Then pour the mixture into the ice molds, the latter can be of any shape and material. However, it is preferable to use silicone molds.
Place the molds in the freezer for about 2-3 hours, until the ice cube has formed. Finally, remove the seafood delight from the freezer and offer it to the cat.
Surprise cold cookie
Ingredients for 15 biscuits
- 150 gr. of wet cat food
- Catnip to taste
- 15 plastic cups of 200 ml
To make the cold surprise cookies for the Kitty, mix the wet food and catnip in the bowl and form a cookie mixture.
Then insert 10 gr in the 15 glasses of dough. Flatten the mixture by inserting the glasses one inside the other and cover the last glass with cling film to prevent the mixture from being burned by freezing.
Put the glasses in the freezer overnight. After the night, put the bottom of the glass, which is below the stack of glasses, under hot water to free it from the other glasses and let the cold biscuit come out.
Leave the latter in a bowl for 5 minutes before giving it to the cat, in order to offer the cat a fresh and soft biscuit.
