It’s raining cat and dog treats here at Stonyfield! With so many affectionate cat and dog owners out there, we thought it best to create some holiday treats for all our furry friends. So, while you’re both enjoying each other’s company beside the fireplace this winter – pass one of these treats their way while you sip your eggnog.
We receive so many pictures from our fans of their pets eating yogurt and loving it that this recipe was really a no-brainer for us to use. Give it a try for your little friend, or distribute them to a neighbor cat. I personally don’t have pets, but I bet your friend’s would love a good surprise and delight!
Yield varies by how big a shape is cut. A “medium” bone-shaped biscuit cutter = 36 biscuits.
