What cat doesn’t love tuna fish? If you want to give your cat an easy, delicious treat every now and then, this recipe should be right up your alley! All you need it flour, cornmeal, tuna fish, and water and you’ll have a yummy kitty treat in no time!
Mix 1 cup flour, 1 cup cornmeal, 1 can of undrained tuna fish (in water or oil, your pick) and 1/3 cup water in a bowl. Mix thoroughly until everything is evenly mixed. On a cookie sheet lightly rubbed down with cooking oil, either ball the dough into small, quarter-sized cookies, or ball into marble sized pieces and lightly press them with your palm. Cook the treats at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until lightly brown, allow to cool and serve to your kitty for a yummy treat even picky cats won’t turn down! You can store the treats in an airtight container for 7 days- I would recommend storing the treats in the fridge due to the tuna fish in the treats.
You can also add an egg to this recipe- I don’t because my cat doesn’t like the treat with eggs in it- shes like the above recipe better. You can also substitute the tuna fish for mackerel or sardines, which I find disgusting so I won’t try it, but my fiance feeds my cat sardines all the time (he eats the nasty suckers with cheese and crackers, while I sit there gagging at the sight and smell), so I would imagine she would love the treats with sardines.
Play around with the basic recipe to see what your cat will eat. My sister feeds her cat the same thing only with cottage cheese instead of tuna fish (my sister is a vegetarian like I am so will not open a can of tuna unless there’s a gun to her head), and her huge picky cat gobbles it up. My cat pukes up any dairy, so if your cat is dairy-sensitive (as in diarrhea after consumption or vomiting) forgo dairy and stick with stinky fish. Even a picky cat will love it if you play around with your recipe to make it all your own for your purring friend.
