Years ago, we used to make treats for our dogs all the time, but it never occurred to me to try making them for our cats. I don’t know about you, but our cats can be so darn picky! After some experimenting, I finally came up with the perfect homemade cat treats made from tuna! Apparently, they are delicious because all four of our sweet tabbies love them. Check out our DIY Tuna Cat Treats.
Tuna Cat Treats Ingredients:
- 1 5 oz can tuna (packed in water), drained
- 1 C. All-Purpose Flour
- ½ Banana, mashed
- 1 Egg

Thanks for this, I love it! I just hope my cat will love it too. Even with the same ingredients, the outcome will be different especially on the first try. Keep on sharing your recipes.
did you make this? Did your cat like it?
Ya he loves these cat treats. Also I taught him to sit and stand up.
My finicky cats wanted nothing to do with them, but they don’t like any treats. My coworker’s cat and dog loved them though. 🙂
Aw, I’m glad someone liked them at least!
How long do these last?
A few weeks but only if stored in the refrigerator.
