#MeatlessMonday - Pumpkin Dog & Cat Treats #dog #cats #recipe

I love Halloween, but it's not a favorite for my dogs or my cats. With the crazy costumes, decorations, and constant trick-or-treating strangers - I think the holiday just freaks them out. 

Today's Meatless Monday post is dedicated to our four-legged companions. Take a moment to give them extra hugs and attention around Halloween. They deserve it!

Pumpkin is rich in vitamins A, C and E, and has plenty of zinc, potassium, magnesium, and fiber. Your dog will love these treats! You never know with cats, but suffice to say, these treats are healthy for them too.


Pumpkin Dog or Cat Treats

15 oz. can pureed pumpkin (not pie filling)
3/4 cup uncooked cream of wheat (if your pet is sensitive to wheat, use rice cereal instead)
1/2 cup dry powdered milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter


Preheat oven to 300F
Mix all ingredients together. 
Drop small spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet
Bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes
Store in airtight container

Ooh, this definitely seems like a great treat for pets! And heh, my dog hates 4th of July, so I completely get why your pets would freak out around Halloween...

4th of July isn't a favorite either! Poor guys
