Woofie Wednesday


Since some of you have woofies that live with you, or might be going to visit woofies this year, here are three woofie treat recipes you can use to make treats for woofies. If you are like Daisy with her E-Z Bake oven, you might want to stick with the first recipe, which does not require cooking!

Cheese & Peanut Butter Cake

6 Low-fat cheese slices
1 can of Dog Food
6 tablespoons of peanut butter

Using a six-cupcake pan, place one slice of cheese in each cupcake hole, forming each slice into the shape of the hole. Put 1/6 of the canned dog food in each of the cheese (fold any extra cheese over dog food). Put 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on each "cake". Freeze for about four hours before feeding to your woofie.

I don't know if you can use cat food to make kittie treats, they might be kind of big though.

Barking Bagels

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached flour
1 package (1/4 ounce) yeast
1 cup Chicken broth
1 tablespoon honey

In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour with the yeast. And 1/2 cup chicken broth and honey and beat for 3 minutes. Gradually add the remaining flour. Knead the dough until smooth and moist, but not wet (Use the reserve broth as necessary). Cover the dough for about 5 minutes. Divide the dough into about 15 to 20 pieces, rolling each piece into a smooth ball. Make a hole in each ball with your finger, about half an inch wide. Place on a greased cookie sheet, and allow bagels to rise for 5 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the bagels to cool in the oven before feeding to your woofie.

(From the book Critter Cuisine which you can get at www.littleangelsrescue.org. Includes 150 pet recipes, 55 "Meow Munchies", 25 "Parrot Pleasures", and a list of dangerous foods.)

Cheddar Squares

1/3 cup all-natural applesauce
1/3 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup water
2 cups unbleached white flour

In a medium bowl, mix all wet ingredients. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Mix well. Pour batter into a greased 13x9x2-inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes. Treat is down when toothpick inserted into the center and removed comes out clean. Cool and cut into bars. Makes 54 1 1/2-inch squares for your woofies.

WHAT?!?! Wednesday

I find very strange things to read in Bean's Blog sometimes...

Cat Racing really was a sport that actually took place in the Regency Era and later in England and Belgium. The reference I found on the web refers to a Harrison Weir book published in 1889 which talks about a 1860 race:

"Cat-racing is a sport which stands high in popular favour. In one of the suburbs of Li├Ęge it is an affair of annual observance during carnival time... The cats are tied up in sacks, and as soon as the clock strikes the solemn hour of midnight the sacks are unfastened, the cats let loose, and the race begins. The winner is the cat which first reaches home, and the prize awarded to its owner is sometimes a ham, sometimes a silver spoon. On the occasion of the last competition the prize was won by a blind cat."

While I had eyed Miss Diamond quite speculatively while reading the book -- she is very fast, which has earned her the nickname of Galloping Panther -- I can say I doubt very much that she would like the being tied up in a sack portion of the proceedings.

The article goes on the state that a cat racetrack was opened in 1936 in Dorset, England, which was similar to a greyhound track and equipped with an electric mouse for the competing felines to chase. Needless to say, the cats were not cooperative.

The last record attempt to race cats was in 1949 in Kent, an attempt that also failed.

And she thinks I would be GOOD at this??? I tell you what, you try to tie me up in sack, and I'll scratch your eyes out. Winning Cat won't be only blind thing.

Cat races? Beans were kinda stoopid back then!

Captain Jack and Dante said...

If Mommy could cook she could make those for our woofies but since she doesn't, we guess they are out of luck!!

Tybalt said...

Thanks for sharing the recipies! Maybe I can convince mommy to try them out for Loki and Dana.

CAT RACING? People are strange. I'd feel all mean and scratchy, too, if someone tied me up in a sack and took me away from home.

Christine and FAZ said...

I really can't believe those 19th century humans really thought cats would be silly enough to run around a track after an electric mouse. We are mush to smart for that. FAZ

Hear, hear! Tie the kitties up in sacks indeed! That's despicable and punishable by death.

PB & J said...

Those treats look good - maybe we'll let mom know and she can make some for George!

Rascal said...

I'm gonna have to tell my mom about those recipes. They look like they might be tasty for Cats too.

One-Eyed Jack said...

I do not think I would like to be put in a sack either. I hope lots of the kitties biteyied their people for being so stupid!

PS. Speaking of Stupid Human Tricks, my OTW says, while she personally likes the idea of a Chistmas Witch best, (a personal affinity thing), the Christ Child didn't grow up to tell people to kill kitties. Kitties are never even mentioned in the Bible at all. Killing kitties because they were "evil" is something Stupid Humans came up with all on their own. Humans are clearly very good at coming up with Stupid Things all by themselves. We're lucky we have good humans.

My OTW thinks she may dye her hair green and dress up as a Christmas Witch for Christmas. Better than a Holiday-themed Sweater!
