Cat getting a treat.

Homemade healthy treats for cats

Homemade treats for cats

50g canned salmon, sardines or tuna in oil
½ beaten egg
35g wholemeal flour (or plain if you don’t have wholemeal)
Optional – 1 teaspoon catnip
Note – you will also need some additional flour for your fingers
and fork


1. Puree the fish and the oil in a blender – remove any remaining bones
2. Add the egg, flour and catnip (if using) and mix all the ingredients
thoroughly into a sticky paste
3. Coat your fingers in some of the additional flour
4. Pick up approx. ¼ teaspoon of the mixture and roll into small balls
using your fingers
5. Place on a lined baking tray
6. Coat a fork in flour and press down lightly on the balls to flatten
7. Bake at 180°C/350°F for 8-10 minutes (they should still feel soft, not
hard or crunchy)
8. Allow to cool on a wire rack before treating your cat!
9. Store in a sealed container in the fridge, discard if no longer fresh


Remember these are treats – so don’t feed too many at once.
Some human food can be dangerous for our feline friends – did you know that chocolate, onions, garlic, grapes, sultanas and raisins are all toxic to cats?
These harmful foods should all be kept away from cats and not included in anything you make for them. If your cat ingests any of these foods, please contact your veterinary surgeon immediately.
No matter how much love they are made with not all cats are fans of baked treats. Some cats may simply pre-fur a portion of the fish!
