We all love our cats and we show them this by giving them only the best kind of food. But occasional we want to break this routine and give our cat a treat. That’s why I put together some of my favorite Cat Treat Recipes. They are very simple to make and my cats love them, especially tuna Cat Treat Recipes.
My main goal is to pamper them with yummy treats, that don’t just taste good, but are also healthy and make their fur shiny. They can enjoy a good treat and be healthy, right?
Tuna cat treat recipe
For some reason cat loves tuna. So let’s prepare them a treat made out of very healthy tuna fish. This is one of my favorite and easiest tuna cat treat recipes. And this is what we need:
- 1/2 can of tuna
- 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup of nonfat powdered milk
- 1 beaten egg
- 1/4 cup of water
I start with preheating oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, I make the dough for our tuna cat treat. I take a large bowl and mash the tuna into smaller pieces.
Then I add flour and milk and mix all together really well. I add oil and water and mix really well once again. In a separate bowl, I beat eggs until they get a foamy texture and add them to the mix.
Then I mix everything well once more. The dough might be sticky, but don’t worry, it’s ok.

Now is time to shape dough into small bite size chunks. When I have time, I try to shape then to look like fishes, but most often I simply shape them into marble size balls. Then I put everything on greased cookie sheet and put it into the oven. This tuna cat treat needs about 20 minutes of baking. After 10 minutes I turn tuna treats around, so both sides get that yummy golden brown color.
Now is time to cool off tuna cat treats. Make sure you wait they cool off before you serve them to your cat. This tuna cat treats are best to store in airtight container in cool and dry place (fridge is ok too).
As I said, this is really simple tuna cat treat recipe. It will take you only about 30 minutes or so to bake them and your cat will love you for it.
Simple Cat Treat Recipe
Turkey cat treat recipe
This is simple cat treat recipe. But best of all, it’s very healthy. It needs very little ingredients and cats love it. And this is what we need:
- 1/2 lb of turkey leg meat (or something similar)
- 1/2 tablespoon of ground up egg shell (or 1 crushed calcium tablet)
- 1 small carrot
- 1 packet of gelatine
I start with cutting turkey meat into small cubes. I put meat and grated carrot into a saucepan and cover it with 1 cup of water.
I wait until it boils and simmer for about 30 minutes.
I put 1/2 cup of water and Into small bowl and dissolve the gelatine in it. I make sure that I stir it long enough to fully dissolve.
I put around 1/4 of turkey cubes into flat containers (the best are those with lids). The rest of turkey, carrot, and ground up egg (for extra calcium) I liquidize with the rest of fluid and add it to gelatine mixture. I make sure gelatine and turkey combine evenly by stirring as long as needed. Then I pour mixture over turkey cubes in a container. Then I wait for about one hour to cool off. Then I put the lids on the container and put it in the fridge to set. I leave it there for about 2 hours before I offer this delicious turkey cat treat.
Healthy Cat Treat Recipe
Studies showed, that 57% of cats are overweight or obese. And just like people, cats can have health problems associated with being overweight. Cat treats shouldn’t make up more than 10% of calories cat consume. So, when I make cat treats, they should be as healthy as they can be. So there is no excuse you shouldn’t try this healthy cat treat recipe. You will need:
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of oats
- 3 ounces non-spiced beef
This recipe is quick and easy. I put egg, 2 tablespoons of fine diced oats and 3 ounces of non-spiced beef (you can use chicken or sausage too) in a bowl and blend everything together really well.
If you want to add some catnip is fine too, but I usually don’t.
I use a teaspoon to measure mix and roll it up into small balls.
Then I put them on broiler griddle and boil them until they are crispy on the outside (about 4-5 minutes). Then I leave them to cool off before I serve them to my cats. You see how easy is to make healthy cat treats?
