That looks like a great dog treat recipe, if I had a dog, I'd for sure be trying them out!

I just happened to find that recipe & loved it because it was easy.......Hannah seems to like them a lot.  If we were closer, I'd bake some treats special for Sophers & bring them over for her.

I found a few pretty decent websites for kitty treats.......BTW, did you know pumpkin can also be used for a constipated kitty?  I know it works wonders for dogs (both for loose stools & constipation) but wasn't aware you can also use it for cats.  I looked & never did find an easy pumpkin recipe for cats.  Sorry. Tongue

Anyway, here are a few treats that you can make:

ETA:  Maybe I should've put these in the homemade cat treats thread......oops...... Huh

I've made similar treats with mashed sweet potato & baby food chicken or turkey & squash & oat bran. Punkin loves them but Oreo will only eat crunchy treats. If Sophers likes soft treats that recipe may work for her.

Makes 2 dozen

The parsley in these treats makes them a secret breath freshener for your pooch; substitute dried mint for half of the parsley, if you like. Don't hesitate to adjust the size of the treats to accommodate very small or very large dogs, baking them a few minutes less or a few minutes more, as needed. If your dog has challenges chewing, grind the rolled oats in a food processor before adding them to the mixture.
Ingredients

1 banana, peeled
1 cup oat flour
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dried parsley
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
Method

Preheat oven to 300°F. Put banana in a large bowl and use a spoon or potato masher to mash it thoroughly. Add oat flour, oats, parsley, peanut butter and egg and stir well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Roll mixture into 24 balls, using about 1 tablespoon dough for each; transfer to a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet as done. Use the back of a spoon or the heel of your hand to press each ball into a (1 1/2- to 2-inch) coin. Bake until firm and deep golden brown on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely.

Storage note: It's best to store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or, freeze them to give to your pal later; just be sure to thaw the treats before handing them out.

JJ:

Those treats look yummy too.

So far, I've had two or three friends make these pumpkin treats & each one of us made them a tad differently (I used mostly oatmeal w/just a touch of powdered milk), one used cream of rice & another cream of wheat.  All the dogs are going nuts over these treats.  They do come out really soft no matter how long you bake them but it doesn't matter because you really do need to keep them in the freezer.  I'm sure they'd mold very quickly.  One of my friends brought down her treats w/cream of rice for Hannah & I gave her some of mine w/oatmeal for her beautiful greyhound.  Doesn't seem to matter to the dogs, they love them no matter what.  They are so simple to make.......that's the part I like........

Because they're kept in the freezer, Hannah actually has to chew them.......TG I finally found something she doesn't swallow whole....... Shocked

A food blog that I read has a tasty sounding recipe for Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats:

Sorry if this is a duplicate recipe, I didn't click on the previous links Tongue
