Leftover turkey? Not sure of what to give your cat loving friends for Christmas?

Do not fear, Santa Paws is here for edible inspiration! These tasty treats are sure to get your feline feeling festive.

Ingredients 1/2 pound leftover/cooked turkey meat ¼ cup dried cranberries 1 cup organic oats 1 free range egg 1 tablespoon organic catnip (as purchased at Cambridge Cat Clinic) 1/4 cup flour Directions 1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. 2. Place the turkey, oats, cranberries, egg, and catnip in a blender or food processor, and pulse on low until the mixture blends together. It should still be a bit chunky, similar to the texture of wet sand. 3. Pop the mixture into a bowl and add the flour. Use your hands to knead the dough until it's no longer sticky, and then place on a flour-dusted work surface. 4. Use a rolling pin to create a rectangle of dough around 1/2 inch thick. With the help of a pizza cutter or small cookie cutter, create small shapes for the finished treats (a festive shaped cutter would also be purrrfect!) 5. Place the kitty treats on a parchment-lined sheet tray, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, cool until room temperature, and then toss to your cat (in moderation, we might add!).

Merry Christmas!
