 If you're a devoted cat owner, you know how much your feline friend loves treats. While store-bought options are readily available, making your own cat treats can be a rewarding and healthier alternative. These homemade tuna and catnip cat treats are not only safe and delicious, but they also offer a range of benefits that will keep your furry companion purring with joy.


Benefits of Homemade Cat Treats:

Control Over Ingredients: Making treats at home ensures that you control the quality of the ingredients. You can choose organic options and avoid any additives or preservatives that might be present in store-bought treats.

Healthier Choice: These treats include protein-packed tuna and Greek yogurt, offering essential nutrients to support your cat's overall health.

Digestive Health: The oat flour in the treats contributes to healthy digestion and adds dietary fiber to your cat's diet.

Catnip Bliss: The addition of catnip provides a playful element to the treats. Catnip is known to induce a euphoric response in cats, which can help alleviate stress and anxiety.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the drained tuna, beaten egg, plain Greek yogurt, oat flour, and dried catnip. Mix well until the ingredients are fully blended.
  3. Form the mixture into small, bite-sized balls or flat shapes. You can use your hands or a cookie cutter to shape the treats.
  4. Place the treats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the treats are firm and golden brown.
  6. Allow the treats to cool completely before offering them to your cat.

Store the treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. You can also freeze them for longer shelf life.

Remember that treats should only make up a small portion of your cat's diet. These homemade treats are meant to be given in moderation and should complement a balanced and nutritionally complete cat food.

Final Thoughts:

Homemade cat treats like these tuna and catnip delights are a wonderful way to bond with your feline friend while offering them a tasty and health-conscious treat. By making treats at home, you ensure that your cat enjoys the benefits of natural, wholesome ingredients. Just be sure to consult your veterinarian before introducing any new treats or foods into your cat's diet, especially if your cat has any underlying health conditions or allergies. Enjoy the process of pampering your furry companion with these delicious homemade treats!
