To many of us, cats aren’t just pets; they’re family. And just like any member of the household, they deserve a birthday celebration. 

Aside from extra cuddles and playtime, the best way to show your love on your cat’s birthday is by making her a special birthday cake.

This article lists some of the best birthday cakes for cats, including their respective recipes. All cat cakes are 100% safe and delicious! 

1. Tuna Cake 

For this recipe, you need a can of tuna, one egg, two tablespoons of plain breadcrumbs, and two tablespoons of sweet potatoes. 

Drain the tuna of any water, then transfer it into a mixing bowl with the other ingredients. 

Mix until well combined and scoop the mixture into a 1-inch round cookie cutter. 

Lift the cutter and smooth out the edges, then frost the cake with mashed potato if desired. 

If the tuna mixture appears a little loose, add more mashed sweet potatoes. Top it up with your cat’s favorite treats!

2. Simple Pâté Cake 

Sometimes, you can’t beat the classics. This pâté cake is exactly what it says on the tin; a can of your cat’s favorite pâté, decorated with a few cat treats. 

Slide the pâté onto a serving plate and use a spoon or spatula to shape it into a cake-like form. Then, scatter a few treats like Luvsome on top. Simple as that!

3. Lamb With Chicken Salmon Stew and Anchovies 

This cake is made with Weruva Lamb Burger-ini cat food and Inaba Chicken Salmon Stew, and decorated with anchovies and minnows. If your cat isn’t fond of lamb, use Weruva Chicken With Gravy with several teaspoons of chicken pâté to hold its shape. 

Transfer the can of lamb cat food onto a serving plate, then spoon the chicken salmon stew directly on top. Use anchovies and minnows to decorate the cake. 

4. Salmon Cat Cake

If you’re feeling a bit fancy, why not treat your cat to a scrumptious salmon birthday cake? 

For this recipe, you can either use canned salmon or fresh salmon. 

If using canned salmon, drain the liquid and transfer it to a mixing bowl. If using fresh, cook then flake it into the bowl. 

Add egg, breadcrumbs, grated carrot, chopped parsley, and olive oil. Mix until all the ingredients are combined. 

Transfer the mixture onto a serving plate and shape it into a cake-like form. 

Decorate it with smoked salmon pieces. 

Never serve your cat raw salmon because it may contain bacteria and harmful parasites, resulting in food poisoning and severe illness. 

5. Birthday Cake With Mashed Potato Frosting 

This yummy birthday cake looks exactly like what humans eat on their birthdays, but fear not, it’s 100% cat-safe! 

The base is made with meat pâté and blended cat treats to make it even more enticing. Let it chill in the fridge for 30 to 40 minutes to hold its shape, then cover it with plain mashed potato frosting. 

Frost the cake with an offset spatula. Top it off with a pinch or two of catnip and some cat treats. You can also add pet-safe food coloring to the mashed potatoes and dot the cake with colorful dots, pawprints, or your cat’s name. 

And that’s it! Place the cat cake in the fridge to set until your feline friend wakes from her nap. 

6. Breakfast of Champions 

Start your cat’s birthday strong with this nutritious (and indulgent) cat breakfast. 

This birthday cake is made with KatKin Moo base (steamed beef with carrots and broccoli), a Churu puree treat, and cat kibble for that extra crunch. 

Squeeze the puree treat on top of the beef base, then decorate with cat kibble as shown in the picture above. Thanks to @misha.siberia.cat on Instagram for this recipe!

7. Egg and Chicken Cake

This cat cake takes a bit more effort to make than the other cakes on this list, but it’s sure to be a hit with your cat! 

You’ll need one small egg, a can of chicken pâté, and 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree. If your cat prefers tuna or meat to chicken, feel free to substitute it. 

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). 

In a small bowl, whisk an egg until smooth. 

Grab a separate bowl and combine pumpkin puree with your cat’s favorite chicken pâté. Don’t worry about exact measurements, just mix until it looks well combined. 

Spoon the pâté mixture into a greased muffin tin, then carefully pour the whisked egg on top. 

Bake for around 10 minutes or until the egg is set. Let the cakes cool and decorate them with cat treats and creamy cat puree. 

8. No-Bake Fish Cake

If your cat loves fish, she’ll go bananas for this cake. 

You’ll need a can of Albacore tuna, 1/4 cup of cooked and flaked salmon, 1/4 cup mashed potato, and 1/4 cup brown rice (unseasoned and plain). Adjust the recipe’s measurements as you see fit. 

In a large bowl, combine the flaked tuna, salmon, mashed sweet potato, and cooked brown rice. 

Mash the ingredients together with a fork until well combined. You want the mixture to hold its shape when formed into a patty. 

If the mixture appears too dry, add a teaspoon of low-sodium chicken broth or water. 

Form the mixture into small patties and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Decorate with your cat’s favorite creamy cat puree and some chicken broth.
