we missed it!!
happy belated 'love your pet day' y'all!!
i would say i can't believe i missed it, but i totally can. i miss everything because i am 1) lazy and 2) self-centered.
howevs, one special little lady that i am not self-centered about is my lovely little kitty, berrian (she's an inspiration to plus-size kitties everywhere!).
i love my little bear, just like i'm sure so many of you love your special animal friends, so in honor of national 'love your pet day' we're gonna spoil them like they do on the discovery channel (oh, wait, no--that's both gross and morally objectable. let's say animal planet instead).
homemade kitty treats
6 oz can of tuna
1/4 c water drained from tuna
3 tbsp cooked egg white, chopped
1/4 c cornmeal
1/2 c whole wheat flour
preheat oven to 350. combine tuna, egg white and water. add cornmeal and flour and blend to form a dough. knead into ball and roll to 1/4 in thick. cut into 1 in sized pieces and bake at 350 for 20 min.
makes 12 kitty cookies
homemade doggie biscuits
2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1/2 c peanut butter
1 c water
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c white flour
preheat oven to 350. combine oil, peanut butter and water. add flour, one cup at a time until form a dough. knead dough into ball and roll until 1/4 in thick. cut into 3 or 4 in pieces. place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 20 min.
makes 36 biscuits
such an easy way to show your love (and honestly, i think both recipes deserve at least a try on the ol' human taste buds).
and guess what, your pet doesn't know we missed the offical holiday, and even if they did, they wouldn't care....berrian knows i had a very busy day of drinking wine, doing crossword puzzles and watching dvred episodes of project runway yesterday.
lucky for her, i love her enough to squeeze some time for her into my busy schedule....she's gonna be getting lots of extra guilt-ridden belly rubs today!
