Give your four-legged friend some love this Valentine's Day

No matter what your relationship status, there's probably a real cool cat that has your heart this Valentine's Day. Why not return the love with these homemade catnip treats (or "Cat Nipchers" as they're coyly named!)

Made from "all good things: flour, dry milk, catnip, milk, raw honey and an egg," these little feline favors are "then shaped into a ball and rolled out thin and cut" into a heart

When not showering your whiskered wuv-muffin, store these charming little guys in the fridge, or dole out with abandon to all your friends and their furry friends.

Best part? For $6 you get two baker's dozen homemade "Cat Nipchers" in a sweet gift bag. Deal-icious!

And if you've got a real dog in your life, don't worry, you can throw him a bone!
