Celebrating Your Pet’s Birthday

Sharing is caring!

Celebrating your pet's birthday can be a super fun event for your fur baby.

That is if you make them their own birthday cake! Here are a few options for you to try.

MEOW — Mittens here to share with you about how my mom and grandma threw the best birthday party for me and my pal Tucker!

Kitty Cat Birthday cake

We had a great time with pupcakes, tuna cakes, and more. If you are celebrating your pet's birthday, these tips might come in handy for you.

My mommy got the bright idea to fix me and Tucker's birthday cakes. She used recipes she found online and made a puppy Peanut Butter PupCake and she made me an amazing Tuna Cake.

My mom says to be sure and watch us kitty cats. For some reason, we are attracted to fire, so adult supervision is needed!

This tuna cake is all natural and uses yummy fresh ingredients. For pets feeling a bit under the weather on their special day, consider incorporating some gentle, stomach-soothing treats from Under The Weather Pet to ensure they enjoy the celebration comfortably.

Before I share the cake recipes with you, here are a few tips to make sure your pet's birthday is fun and free of issues for both humans and animals!

Can you replace tuna with chicken?

I am sure you could? I don't see why not.

Hi! before making this recipe I recommend not adding cheese because cats ARE lactose intolerant and using only coconut flour, normal flour makes them ill, thank you~!

@Olivia D., aged cheeses such as cheddar contain virtually no lactose and are generally safe for lactose intolerant individuals

@Olivia D.,

Lactose content reduces the longer you age a cheese as the bacteria break it down into simpler sugars to consume; so, an aged cheddar or parmesan are fine for lactose intolerant people to eat.

I appreciate it but my vet said this is okay and our cats have never gotten sick from eating this.
