Homemade Cat Treats

By | September 5, 2013

Last year my daughter wanted to make Dog Treats for the therapy dog at school.  So this year when she came home and wanted to make some homemade cat treats, because her Teacher has a cat I should not have been surprised.

Apparently my daughter got to talking to her teacher about Buddy (my daughters cat) and her teacher told her about her cat.  So they bonded over their mutual cat love, and my daughter thought it would be nice to make her cat some yummy treats.  Of course our cats would get some too and be the taste testers.

Since I have never made cat treats before I hit the web looking for recipes and found this one at Design Sponge.  I had all the ingredients the recipe called for so I thought why not lets give it a try. My older cats seemed to get drunk off the treats, I guess the catnip got to them.  They both rolled around the floor and gave me the drunk stare.  Buddy, my daughters cat who is only about a year old just gobbled them up.  He even tried to break into the bag I put the treats in.

My daughter is bringing the treats to her teacher today and I sure hope her cat enjoys them.

5oz Can Tuna
1 Cup Oatmeal (made into flour)
1 Egg
1 TBS Olive Oil
1 TBS Catnip
Parchment Paper


Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheet with parchment paper
 Put your oatmeal into food processor and blend to make it more like a flour
 Add everything else to the food processor and blend till mixed well
 Roll your dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.
Smash your balls and cut into quarters (could probably cut into smaller pieces if you want)
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
 Once cooled give to your kitties!

      Kayla, They stay good for about 4 or 5 days in the fridge. I have put them in the freezer and they keep for several weeks that way. I have also given them to the cats frozen and they just played with them till they defrosted.
