    Did you know valerian has the opposite effect of catnip? Sleepytime Extra or any other teabag with valerian is all it takes.
    So you make the kitties a cup of tea?

    Re: For animal lovers

    I wanted to show off the newest member of our family. Another rescue. My husband (the former non-cat person who has now rescued two cats) found her cowering under some boxes at work. No one had any idea where she came from so he rounded her up and brought her home. She was wild and hissed at anyone who came near, UNTIL our granddaughter Alexis showed up. The kitten immediately came right to her and crawled in her lap, purring loudly. She has since calmed down and is a full fledged member of the family, but she is definitely Lexie's cat. She even lets Alexis dress her in doll clothes.

    By the way... Alexis named her Midnight!

    I make mine because it's all she can have at the moment. I cook little treat sized bits of vegetarian dog food in the microwave ... about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes and she loves them!...
    I make treats sometimes, but my recipe cooks up like a dog biscuit. It's all "human" ingredients except for chopped jerky treats. What a good idea about using canned food; I'd never thought of that.

    I like seeing everyone's pet pictures. We've had our American bulldog Nell for almost a year now. She's cute but getting into that stubborn teenage stage where she stops to consider if she really must do what she's told. Here's a picture comparing when we first brought her home to now...

    Midnight is just gorgeous ... and Nell is obviously the boss!

    I just love all the pictures.

    As for the dog treats ... you can also cook them in the oven ... or you can grind up dry food and make treats too.

    The texture of the canned food treats are kind of like a soft treat such as the Bil-Jac liver treats. BUT you can cook them a little longer and make them crispier. The recipes are simple and I will post later.

    I had a black cat named Midnight that lived well into her 20s. So sweet that she found her soul mate in your granddaughter.

    Nell is gorgeous. I've always loved American Bulldogs.

    It looks like since he was a puppy ... his head got larger and his ears got smaller. Too cute!
