Make Pet Treats.
Remember your loyal pets at Christmas by making homemade treats for them. For cat treats - combine 1/2 cup dry cat food with 1/4 cup warm milk. Sprinkle 3 Tablespoons catnip over the mixture and mix well. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Cool and place in a decorated baggie for giving.
For dog treats - combine 4 cups whole wheat flour, 2 cups oatmeal, 3/4 cup peanut butter and 2 1/2 to 3 cups hot water (add additional water if dough is sticky). Knead well and roll out to 1/4". Cut out into bone shapes. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray, place treats about 1 1/2" apart and and bake at 350 F for 40 minutes. Let set for about 2 hours until completely cool.
