Frozen Treats by The Wonder Forest

If your cat is like me and refuses hot eats even when it's cold, purrhaps Fluffy will love these frozen treats.

Price: $

Organic Spinach and Chicken Cat Treats by Sarah Lipoff/PopSugar

Similar to Joy’s treats, these treats have a limited number of ingredients. If chicken isn’t Peanut’s thing, just swap it out for his favorite protein.

Difficulty: Intermediate

Time: Approximately 1 hour to prep and cook

Shelf Life: Store in the refrigerator for up to seven days

Tuna & Cheddar Whisker Biscuits by Christina Verrelli/Epicuricloud

These treats take a little longer to make, but if your cat loves cheese and can tolerate dairy (in small amounts), you will definitely have a winner with these treats!

Price: $$

Ingredients: Canned tuna, shredded cheddar cheese, egg, oat flour and dried catnip (optional)

Difficulty: Expert

Time: Approximately 1 hour to prep and cook

Shelf Life: Store in refrigerator for a week or freeze for longer
