Homemade Tuna Cat Treats Ingredients:
- 6 ounce can of tuna in oil
- 2 tsp. Parsley diced, fresh or dried
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ cup powdered milk
- 1 tbsp. frozen carrots or peas mashed (or baby food)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup ground flax seed
- 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 3 Tbsp. Water
Combine flour, powdered milk and ground flaxseed. In a separate bowl combine tuna, olive oil, carrots or peas, parsley, water and egg.
Make a well in the centre of your flour mixture and pour wet ingredients into middle. Combine very well with a wooden spoon, or better yet-use your hands.
Shape dough into small balls- between the size of a blueberry and a grape. Place them on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Press down lightly with your thumb. Bake in an oven preheated to 350° for 10 minutes, turn treats over and cook an additional 5 minutes.
Store treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
