Gourmet pet meal: Whiskey's sardine porridge

The first step to creating tasty meals for your pets is choosing the best fresh ingredients. Not only will the meals be delicious, but you’ll know exactly what has gone into them. Whiskey was my first cat’s name, and later came Soda. I used to make this sardine meal when we ran out of tinned food and there was some cold porridge left over from breakfast. I combined the two, and voila, one happy cat. No salt is required when making the porridge though, there is plenty in the sardines.
1. Place the oats into a small pot with the water. Bring to a simmer cooking slowly for 5-8 minutes until the porridge is cooked and thickened. Allow to cool.
2. Drain any excess oil from the sardines and mash with a fork. Mix into the cooled porridge. Store in the fridge and serve as required.
