With the upcoming sweltering temperatures, it’s important to keep your feline out of the heat. One great way for them to cool down is with frozen food – either as a treat or as a meal. While there is a variety of pet “ice cream” products you can buy at the store, here’s an easy (and healthy) way to do-it-yourself!
What you will need:
6oz can wet cat food
8oz cold water
1/3 cup dry cat food
ice cube tray
1. Evenly place dry food in clean, empty ice cube tray.
2. Mix wet food with water in a bowl.
3. Spoon wet food/water mix into ice cube tray on top of dry food.
*You can also add to the recipe! Try a few cat treats, cooked unseasoned chicken pieces, peanut butter – anything your cat already loves.
Tips and Tricks:
-If your cat seems uninterested at first, try adding some extra wet food on top of the ice cube treat to get them started. Soon, they’ll come running whenever you open the freezer!
-Always supervise your pet when trying new types of treats.
-Always have fresh water available, especially during the summer. A major sign of overheating in cats is panting. If you see your cat panting, take them to a cool place immediately. You can also try wiping their paws with a wet cloth, since the evaporation will help lower their body temperature.
