As cats age, their nutritional requirements change. Some cats may become finicky and not eat as well as they should. Here are some recipes to encourage your older feline to enjoy a treat now and then. For more suggestions on caring for your older cat, see As Old As He Feels.

Tigger Treats

  • 2/3 cup cooked fish fillet – boned and chopped
  • 3/4 cup cooked barley
  • 3 teaspoons steamed carrots, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons cooked green beans
  • 2 teaspoon nonfat milk

    In a bowl, combine the fish and barley. Stir in the carrots and green beans. Place the dried milk in a small bowl. Stir in a little water and pour over the fish mixture. Refrigerate and serve small amounts as treats.

    Lean Turkey Cuisine

  • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoon bell pepper, chopped
  • 2/3 cup extra-lean ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 baby carrot, cooked and mashed
  • 1 teaspoon grated cheese

    Heat the oil in a small skillet and sauté the bell pepper until tender. Stir in the ground meat and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the cheese. Place the mixture in a bowl and let cool. Serve warm in small amounts or refrigerate and serve as small portions.

    Long Liver Tidbits

  • 1 or 2 whole chicken livers
  • 1 tablespoon seeded tomato, chopped and peeled
  • 2 teaspoons low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

    In a small saucepan, cook the liver in a small amount of water for 2 minutes. Remove the liver and let cool. Stir tomato, cottage cheese and garlic powder together. Chop the liver into bite-sized pieces and stir into the bowl. Refrigerate and serve in small tidbits.
