Cold Treats for Kitties

Summer isn’t far off now. This time of year can be brutally hot here in Florida. Fortunately, we have some great ways to beat the heat, such as frozen treats. Last year we listed a few things you can make for Fido. But what about Fluffy? A local Tampa, FL vet lists some cold snacks for cats in this article.

Tuna Bites

Mix some canned tuna in water with a little plain, fat free yogurt and a bit of parsley. Portion into kitty-sized bites and freeze. These are safe for dogs, too!

Sodium Cubes

Sodium-free broth is a safe option for our feline pals. Make ice cubes for Fluffy by pouring some into an ice cube tray. Just don’t fill the tray: you don’t want them to be too big.

Frozen Dinner

Another thing you can do is mix some canned food with water. Freeze in small portions, and offer one or two to your furry friend.

Kitty Ice Cream

Did you know that you can get ice cream just for cats? Some kitties really enjoy it. Others? Not so much. There’s only one way to find out. Check local pet stores. Of course, you can also make your own. Just stick with ingredients that are safe for your furball.

Fluffy Slushy

Put a little canned food in a blender, and mix it with ice and water. Offer it to your feline buddy on a sweltering day. Purrfect!

Kitty Snow Cone

Another thing you can try is dribbling tuna juice over some crushed ice. You can also add some of the tuna as toppings.

Cat Milk

Contrary to popular belief, cows’ milk actually isn’t good for our feline friends. Kitties become lactose-intolerant when they stop nursing, so they often have trouble digesting dairy. However, Fluffy can have some cat milk, which is commercially made just for her. Try freezing a little, and see what she thinks.

Baby Food

You can also offer your furry friend some frozen baby food. Just check the ingredients first, and make sure it doesn’t contain anything unsafe, such as garlic, onions, or avocado.


While your kitty may enjoy a cold treat, it’s also important to protect her from the heat to begin with. Keep Fluffy safe and sound indoors, and make sure she has plenty of water.
