DIY Tuna & Honey Cat Treats

Does your cat enjoy some good tuna? Treat your kitty with these delicious tuna cookies that you’ll finish in no time. Although tuna is not something you should feed your feline frequently due to a high amount of mercury, a few tuna treats once in a while won’t hurt. As long as you don’t make these kitty cookies every day or every week, your cat will be just fine enjoying a bit of tuna.

All you need for these snacks are a few basic ingredients – tuna, eggs, honey, carrots and rice flour. Half an hour from now, your kitty can enjoy their yummy snack!

To be on the safe side, it’s best not to feed these treats to young kittens. Furthermore, limit the amount you give to your adult cat to maximum 4 treats a day.

DIY simple cat treats to treat your kitty

Keep in mind: Don’t feed your cats with more than four treats in one day and don’t give the treats to kittens. This recipe contains tuna as the main ingredient. Although the diet of cats includes fish, tuna is the least recommended because of the high amount of mercury. You can replace the tuna in this recipe with other fish, for example, sardines.

Could I substitute the rice flour with wheat flour

Hi, yes, cats can have wheat flour so you can use that instead of rice flour.

How much of the rice flour do you add? Maybe I missed it. Can i use coconut flour instead of rice flower?

Monika March 27, 2021 - 2:45 pm

Yes, coconut flour is safe to use for cats. I don’t really measure how much flour, I just add a small amount.
