Frozen treats are a fun, delicious way to beat the summer heat. But can cats eat popsicles? Popsicles designed for people are not healthy or even appealing to most cats. Enter the Catsicle. These simple, DIY cat popsicles are designed with your kitty (and your cat's nutrition) in mind.

While he may or may not choose to eat them (as cats are notoriously picky), you can at least rest assured that you tried to make his summer awesome. Here's Amber's recipe and her catsicle guinea pig, Penny.

What you’ll need:

What you’ll need


1. Dump the full can of wet food into a bowl. Or, try canned tripe instead for another healthy substitute. 


Penny already wants a taste test.

2. Fill the empty can with goat milk, and mix that with the cat food until well-blended.

5. Add a cat treat. You can use almost any kind of treat; some examples are:

6. Put in freezer until fully frozen, about 2-3 hours.

7. Remove from ice cube tray and let your cat enjoy his treat! For best freshness, remove immediately from ice cube tray and place in a sealed freezer container or a Ziploc freezer bag. 

The Result

Unfortunately, my cat didn't show any interest in these catsicles once I got them out of the freezer and tried to give her one. Maybe it was because the smell wasn't as strong when it was frozen? Or just cats

Maybe my dog would enjoy these more... I'll try this Dogsicle recipe instead!
