Here’s a simple recipe from The Ultimate Cat Treat Cookbook by Liz Palika. Pumpkin is a good fiber source for your cat, so this treat is a healthful way to share your Thanksgiving bounty with your cats. Just remember to use UNSEASONED pumpkin in the recipe.

Thanksgiving Treats

1/2 cup cooked turkey; shredded finely

1 tablespoon finely grated carrots

3 tablespoons unseasoned canned pumpkin

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Puree for 20 seconds.

2. No cooking needed. Serving size is a teaspoon for a kitten or a tablespoon for a cat. Feed from a spoon, your finger, or use as a training treat.

3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Variation: If your cat is hesitant to try new things, add a tablespoon or two of the water from canned tuna fish packed in water to the mixture before you puree it.
