Recipe: Homemade Cat Treats
My cat celebrated his first year in our home today and I thought that it would be nice to bake up some treats for him! Sorted made one for dogs, why not make some for cats?
This is really cheap to make and fairly free of chemicals compared to commercial cat treats
- 1 tbsp Catnip(Optional)
- 1 10 oz can Tuna or Salmon
- 1 cup All purpose flour
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 Egg
- 1 cup Old fashioned oats
Make The Dough
Preheat your oven to 350 F
Drain your canned tuna and reserve about 3 tbsp of the liquid.
Dump your old fashioned oats into the food processor and pulse until powdery. Add all of your ingredients in and pulse away until it forms a ball of dough. If it's too sticky, add more flour. If it's too dry, add a bit of water.
I don't have any catnip available here but you should definitely try to add it in!
Shaping The Dough
Roll your dough until it's about 1/8 inch thick. Using a fish shaped cookie cutter cut out the treats. Add in details such as eyes with a toothpick and with a small knife, mark on the fins. If you don't have a cookie cutter like this, just use any other shape!
Bake for about 20-30 mins until they turn slightly golden and are quite crisp on the outside.
If your cat prefers harder treats you can bake them longer. Let them cool completely!
