I am a veterinary technician and I can probably say that if it is made of something that the cat doesn't usually eat, then he probably won't eat any of it. The best thing to do IMO would be to make from the cat food it normally eats.
Good luck with it though - cool idea

If I made something for my cat she would not eat it. If I made something and left it out by accident she would eat it!! I

I think this request is more for the enjoynment of the pet owner and not the pet.

I have several yummy dog treat recipes, but nothing for a cat. Sorry!

Maybe if its a big cat, it will like the dog recipe??

That is so strange. Pick up 3 cans of wet cat food. Open them up. As carefully as you can, take the food out of the cans keeping them in their round form. Put one down on a plate. Take a slightly smaller cookie cutter and cut the second cat food round. Stack. Take the third and cut with another slightly smaller cutter. Stack on top. Viola! A 3 tiered cat cake. icon_razz.gif

Seriously though, that's a tough one. Good luck figuring something out for it. Do they want a cake for the cat, but really a cake for human's to eat? Or do they want a cake for the cat to eat?

My cat likes marshmallows. He will steal Peeps if you leave them out. He would probably eat fondant if I let him! (but I won't because it would make him sick!)

You could make a 'frosting' out of a whipped shrimp/salmon mousse and pipe it onto the cat food cake. You could use freeze dried shrimp as decorations. Also, there are other kind of freeze dried cat treats made from cow, sheep, and fish.

Post a picture of your creation please!! icon_smile.gif

Here's a recipe for salmon mousse:,1817,152162-230204,00.html

I would leave out the wine, onion, pepper, cayenne, and maybe even the lemon juice. I know onions are bad for dogs, don't know about cats. Not sure what else of those items would be bad for the cat. Some cats cannot handle cream either, so maybe just make the mouse with the samlon, ice & gelatin.

Maybe sgirvan can shed some light on that.

cats are just so sensitive when it comes to changing their foods. I found somewhere that they took a can of the cats food and sprinkled cat nip and shredded cheese on top and the cat loved it. Maybe you have a fish shaped mould that you could put the cat food into and freeze it a little then turn out onto a plate.
I would really just try to stick with a little treat for the cat and something cute for the owner!

I seriously doubt that a cat would eat a cake baked for it- dogs yes, but cats can be very finicky. Here's recipe a cat might enjoy- if he/she doesn't have a milk intolerance (there is some type of Milk substitute available at pet stores for cats that are milk intolerant.) Yes, pets can have serious allergies. I would put the gelatin and shrimp in first at the bottom of the mold so that they would show up when the mousse was unmolded.
