There’s nothing like a popsicle on a hot summer day. Let your cat join you in this summertime tradition with popsicles made just for her. To add a degree of fun — and authenticity — we used a tray that makes fish-shaped ice cubes.



  • 1 6-ounce can of water-based tuna
  • 1 tsp. organic catnip, crushed finely


  1. Drain the liquid from the tuna into a pouring cup.
  2. Fillaplasticicecubetrayhalfwaywithbottledwater.
  3. Lightly sprinkle catnip into each of the cube holders in the tray.
  4. Filltherestoftheicecubetraywithtunawater.
  5. Carefully store in your freezer.
  6. Wait a few hours until the cubes are frozen solidly. Then, plop one tuna popsicle
    into your cat’s clean bowl and watch her enjoy this homemade fishy feast.
