PetCakes Cheese Nip Starter Kit - $9.95
The cat cupcakes are already in the oven for the human attendees at Priscilla's upcoming birthday bash, but what to serve the feline guests? That's a question I've been pondering, along with Sarah on my Facebook page, also struggling to come up with ideas for her cat Fern's birthday party. We both agreed that there are an abundance of fancy dog cookies that can be found online and in pet boutiques, but where are all the equally adorable desserts for cats?
One option I came across this week is a product called PetCakes, by a company called Lucky Paws. PetCakes are described as all-natural, organic, microwavable treats, that promise "homemade goodness" in a jiffy.
The directions that come with the Cat Lovers starter kit (pictured above) are straightforward, and remind me of mixing up exciting little creations in my Easy Bake oven as a child. All you have to do is combine the ingredients in a bowl, pour the mixture into the fish shaped pan, and nuke 'em in the microwave for a short 2 1/2 minutes. The included mix is "Cheese nip" flavored, and consists of organic oat flower, organic rye flower, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, romano cheese, catmint, baking soda and baking powder. The instructions also recommend adding a tablespoon of tuna, salmon, or anchovy paste to help increase the yum factor for your kitty.
PetCakes Party 2 Go Kit - $14.95
Unfortunately, it's too late for me to order a kit before Friday (the Party 2 Go Kit would have been purrfect!), but I'd still like to try them out at some point. The cakes seem to be fast and fun to make, and could be something different to offer at your next cat celebration.
So what do you think? Would you buy these easy bake-ables for your kitty, or do you already make your own cat food/treats?
