5 Healthy Homemade Cat Treat Recipes Your Mog Will go Mad for

With such a wide range of cat food readily available, it is easy to ensure your cat has a good meal. But what about those times in between, the times when your cat is peckish or simply wants  some variety between meals? Making your own healthy cat treats is so easy and although it may not come with the satisfaction of eating your creation yourself, we know your cat will love you for it. 

In this post, we’ve rounded up 5 of our favourite cat treat recipes. Much like us humans, not all felines have the same palate, so try a few different recipes to find out what works best.

  1. CAT CROUTONS

Although these were created as an apology treat for Becky’s cat Dill after her birthday was accidentally forgotten, we reckon these would make the perfect treat any day of the week. Crispy and crunchy they are a great variation to the traditional mushy cat food.

2. TUNA CATNIP TREATS

For a quick snack, follow Joy the Baker’s recipe to make catnip and tuna treats. Catnip has long been associated with benefits for cats, so whilst you are at it why not try Joy’s DIY catnip yarn balls as well? A combination guaranteed to keep your cat satisfied for hours!

3. ORGANIC SPINACH & CHICKEN CAT BITES 

These organic cat treats are quick and easy to cook, whilst being super healthy, packed full of nutrients for your kitty. If the chicken doesn’t go down well with your cat, it can easily be swapped out for the same amount of organic salmon or tuna. Tasty!

4. TUNA & CHEDDAR CAT CRISPS

Biscuits are a great way to add some variety to your cat’s diet and these tuna and cheddar creations from Adventures in Cooking are sure to be a delight. Eva has also included a recipe for flax and bacon variations for dogs, shaped into little dog paws. These treats are high in fat, however, so we recommend sticking to just a couple a day!

5. 3 INGREDIENT SALMON CAT TREATS 

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or the energy to make an extravagant meal for one kitty, instead why not whip up these 3 ingredient treats in under five minutes? Becky from The Cookie Rookie created these for her cat Dill, and they went down a treat. These ones are fish shaped but she recommends using any cookie cutter you can find to create something unique.

    Some great kitty snacks and treats here. I thought I was a bit crazy baking in the kitchen with my two cats, but I feel very at home here!
    Both of my cats love catnip, so that’s the constant ingredient across most of the treats I make. Love the Tuna and Cheddar recipe you profiled, I’ll be giving that a try. I need to work on my presentation if I’m going to take photos though, obviously my cats do mind the odd shaped treats I cook up. 🙂
