Homemade Cat Treats

Cat Food

A treat is a reward for an achievement. When we humans love treating ourselves with various delicacies, why not give treats to our cats? While you always have the option of purchasing ready-made cat treats, making them by yourself is a very special way of rewarding your kitty and connecting with it.

Easy Recipes for Cat Treats

Recipe #1


  • Mashed sardines – 7 ounces
  • Dry non-fat milk – ¼ cup
  • Wheat germ – ½ cup


Take a mixing bowl and combine mashed sardines, dry non-fat milk, and wheat germ in it. Mix all the ingredients properly and prepare cookie dough. Make small balls out of the cookie dough. Take a cookie sheet and grease it with cooking spray. Place the cookie balls on the cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork. Preheat the oven to 350 °F and place the cookie sheet in the oven. Bake the cookies till they attain brown color.

Recipe #2


  • Undrained tuna (pureed) – 6 ounces
  • Cornmeal – 1 cup
  • Flour – 1 cup
  • Water – ⅓ cup
  • Egg (beaten) – 1


Take cornmeal and flour in a mixing bowl. Add tuna, egg, and water to it. Knead the ingredients together to form a stiff dough. Once the dough is prepared, roll it out into small cookies with shape and size you desire. Then preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a cookie sheet, place the cookies on it, and bake them for about 20 minutes.

Recipe #3


  • Canned mackerel, drained – ½ cup
  • Whole-grain bread crumbs – 1 cup
  • Vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Egg (beaten) – 1
  • Brewer’s yeast – ½ teaspoon


Take a mackerel in a medium-sized bowl and mash it with the help of a fork. Mash until you form tiny pieces and then add the remaining ingredients to it. Combine all the ingredients together. Drop ¼ teaspoonful oil on a greased cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to 350 °F and bake the cookies for about 8 minutes. Cool them on wire rack and your cat treat is ready.

Recipe #4


  • Cooked kipper – 4 ounces
  • Leftover cooked root vegetables – 1 cup
  • Eggs – 2
  • Little milk
  • Grated cheese – ½ cup


Take cooked kipper and vegetables in a bowl and mash them into a mixture. Take a baking pan and grease it with cooking spray. Transfer the mashed mixture into this greased pan. Meanwhile, take another bowl and beat milk, eggs, and cheese in it. Pour this mixture over the mashed mixture in the baking pan. Now, place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes. After removing it from the oven, cool the kipper treat on a wire rack.

Recipe #5


  • Eggs – 3
  • Milk – 2 tablespoons
  • Grated cheese – 3 tablespoons
  • Margarine – 1 tablespoon


Take eggs in a bowl and beat them. Then add grated cheese to this mixture. Now, take a saucepan and melt margarine in it, until it sizzles. Add egg mixture to the melted margarine and stir the mixture until the egg is cooked completely.

Hi, I'm Jess and this is Nala.

I've loved cats since I was a child and over the years I became obsessed with them. I love all animals and pets, but I have studied cats with special passion. I’ve spent most of my life trying to understand them and why they are the best companions, if they ‘allow’ you to be their friend.

I put this blog together with the aim of sharing things about cats that interest me and that can help you to understand your own…

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to interest you along the way.
