Tuna Treats

Tuna Treats (alternative to cat treats)

Makes approximately 60 treats:

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat, dry, powdered milk
1/2 can tuna, in oil OR 1/2 cup cooked chicken, chopped into small pieces
1 tablespoon vegetable oil OR cod liver oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup water
Catnip (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, mash the tuna (or chicken) into smaller pieces. Then add flour and milk. Mix well. After all is mixed, pour in water and oil. Mix well again. Next beat egg in seperate dish until egg gets a foamy texture. Add to mix. Mix well. The dough mix will be sticky, so don't worry.

Using your fingers, shape dough into small bite size balls - about the size of a marble. Put balls on greased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with hand. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove treats from oven wait five minutes and turn treats over so other side will cook. Bake 10 more minutes or until golden brown in color. Place treats on cookie rack to cool. Cool for 15 minutes.

NEVER give treats to your pet right after cooking. You can add the catnip in the recipe or sprinkle on top of treats. They like it either way. Store in air tight container and store in refrigerator or cool dry place.

I haven't tried them yet, but they sound pretty good. Maybe I'll make a batch tonight.

Should you really feed a cat catnip like that? I've only heard of it in toys...

My cats love to eat cat nip! I've read it's good for their digestive systems but I don't know how true that is.

I guess if I wasn't so lazy about cooking I might try making this for my cats.

I dont cook much since I'm always working but if I made this for the cats, I can definitely see how I would make more entrees and snacks for the kitties than us!
