Spooky cat biscuits


If there’s one food associated with Halloween, it’s pumpkin – fortunately, this is an ingredient that cats also enjoy. Mix it with salmon, and you’ve got the ultimate kitty snack!


Ingredients:

1 salmon fillet

1 large egg

40g pumpkin

150g flour (plus extra for dusting)

2 tbsp water

Halloween-themed cookie cutters


How to make:

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan, then cook the salmon for 30 minutes. At the same time, dice the pumpkin into small pieces and cook in the oven for about 20 minutes, until soft. When cooked, remove both from heat, but leave the oven on.

Flake the salmon into smaller pieces, then, in a blender, combine all the ingredients until the mix resembles a dough.

Dust a flat surface with flour and roll out the dough mix until about 1cm thick. Use small, Halloween-themed cookie cutters to cut out biscuit shapes.

Place the biscuits on a baking paper-lined tray and bake for 20 minutes until firm to touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool


Spooky pops


Bite size cake pops for your kitty

Ingredients:

1 large carrot

1 egg

1 tbsp olive oil

80g rolled oats

1 tsp catnip

1 handful blueberries (washed)

Cake pop tray

How to make:

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Meanwhile, peel and wash the carrot, then finely grate. Flake the salmon into smaller pieces, then, in a blender, combine all the ingredients until the mix resembles a dough.

In a blender, mix the grated carrot, egg, oats, oil and catnip until well combined.

Using damp hands so it doesn’t stick, take about a tablespoon of mix and carefully roll it into a ball.

Place the balls into the holes in the cake pop tray. Using your little finger, gently make a small indent into the top center point of each ball. Carefully slice the blueberries in half, then place a half into the indent of each cake ball.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until a skewer poked into the cake comes out clean. Leave to cool, then gently remove each cake ball from the tray for a devilishly delicious cat treat.
