Homemade Cat Treats

Turkey Pumpkin Jerky (Kitty Cuisine)

1/2 pound ground Turkey
1/4 cup 100% Pumpkin puree (not for pies)
1/2 tablespoon Catnip
pinch Cinnamon


In a large bowl mix all ingredients, using your hands is probably the most effective way to make sure the ingredients are completely mixed.
Flatten the meat about 1/8-1/4” thick on a cookie sheet 1/2 inches apart. Use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten the meat into strips or whatever shape you desire.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, or the lowest setting.
Dry in an oven, with the door slightly open to let out moisture, for about 3 to 4 hours, until meat is dry appearance and texture.
Cut into kitty sized pieces and store in an air tight container for about 1 week.

The Cat

The Tell-Tail Heart
  by Monica Shaughnessy:

The untold story behind Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart."
Philadelphia, 1842: Poe's cat, Cattarina, becomes embroiled in a killer's affairs when she finds a clue to the crime - a glass eye. But it's only when her beloved "Eddy" takes an interest that she decides to hunt down the madman. Her dangerous expedition takes her from creepy Eastern State Penitentiary to Rittenhouse Square where she runs into a gang of feral cats intent on stopping her.

As the mystery pulls Cattarina deeper into trouble, even Eddy becomes the target of suspicion. Yet she cannot give up the chase. Both her reputation as a huntress and her friend's happiness are at stake. For if she succeeds in catching the Glass Eye Killer, the missing pieces of Eddy's unfinished story will fall into place, and the Poe household will once again experience peace.

Full of Victorian witticisms and rich detail, this cozy mystery is a fictional account of Edgar Allan Poe's real-life animal companion. Fans of historical and animal mysteries are sure to like this series.

Cat's Question of the Month

  • Dear Teddy: How do you handle fleas?
  • Answer  Carefully! Since fleas can jump through screens, my Mom gives me a flea treatment recommended by my Veterinarian. The treatment takes seconds, doesn’t hurt and meets my needs.
