“Mouse” Burgers!


In their most recent newsletter, Banfield published a recipe for “Mouse Burgers” that you can prepare for your cat occasionally as a special treat.

RECIPE: Mouse Burgers

When your kitty brings you fresh “kill” (her favorite plastic mouse or jingle ball), it’s nice to reward such adventurous and strenuous activity with Mouse Burgers, a special treat for your favorite feline.

As with all treats, this recipe is not meant as a replacement or substitute for your cat’s regular diet. Do not feed it to cats currently on a prescription or restricted diet.


  • 3 oz. Lean beef or chicken, finely ground
  • 2 T Dry oatmeal
  • 1 Egg, beaten with a fork
  • 1/2 tsp. Fresh catnip, finely chopped OR 1/4 tsp. dried catnip finely chopped. Use only one version of catnip. Do not use both.


  1. Knead the ingredients together very thoroughly for approximately one minute.
  2. Form the dough into one flat oval.
  3. Broil the dough for 5 to7 minutes, turning frequently until it is cooked completely and the outside is crisp.
  4. Cool for approximately half an hour.
  5. Slice into bite-sized chunks and feed a few pieces at a time to your cat as a treat.
  6. Refrigerate the unused portion; use within three days of cooking.

Banfield veterinarians recommend that this treat only be fed to cats:

  • In small amounts, occasionally.
  • Not as a substitute for an appropriate diet.

And, as always, consult with your veterinarian before making changes to your Pet’s diet.
