    Thanksgiving Tuna Crunchers

    Dish
    Pin It

    The recipe started as an April Fool's joke on Doggy Dessert Chef, but quickly became a favorite of many cats. 

    Ingredients: 

    10 ounces Tuna in water (1 cup)*

    2 tablespoons Catnip

    1 Egg, slightly beaten

    2 cups Whole Wheat Flour


    Directions: 

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit)

    Mix all of the ingredients in the bowl, adding one at a time. Start with the tuna so all of the ingredients have a base to stick to. It will turn into a dough.

    Knead the dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface. Roll the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick.

    Score the dough in a checkerboard pattern. Be sure not to cut all of the way through!

    Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Let cool and then break into pieces. Keep any uneaten treats in the fridge for a couple of days, and then discard if there are any left.

    If you are in a pinch, this one is quick and easy.  Simply take a can of cat-safe tuna (most pet stores sell cat-specific tuna) or a small amount of unsalted tuna in water as the base for this delicious treat. Scoop out the tuna and mix it with a few pieces of your cat's favorite dry kibble.

    If you fancy yourself a crafty type, shape it as best as you can like a "turkey." To add to the effect, add some tiny pieces of white meat from your Thanksgiving turkey as embellishments that look like feathers. Present to your kitty right as you are sitting down to the table so they can enjoy the meal, too!

    If you have extra smoothie, you can pour it into an ice tray and save as treats for later.
