Today, as cat owners are becoming better educated on pet food industry practices, more and more are looking for a natural alternative. In a previous blog, I outlined a fairly comprehensive list of safe 'people foods' our cats can eat, but for myself, as someone that loves to cook, I wanted to take things a step further. I want to treat my kitties to some homemade goodness!
I've been scouring the web looking for a good place to start and let me tell you, below are the absolute best, highest rated cat treat offerings the internet has to offer!

Bulk Prep: Making a large batch and storing them in a nice glass mason jar.
Experimentation: Keeping in mind the list of no-no and safe foods, you can easily tweak your favorite cat treat recipes by swapping in or adding new meats, fish, cheeses, grains, fruits, and veggies to the mix.
Gifting: These would all make great gifts for a cat lover - especially in decorated jars like the ones Joy the Baker made! You could even make an assortment in different jars and toss in some cute cat toys for an adorable kitty gift basket.
