Kitties go crazy over tuna cookies. I like to use these as special treats for Snarf. He would sit and gorge himself on these cookies all day long if I let him.


Tuna Cookies

  • 1 - 8 oz. can tuna (in oil)
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine all of the ingredients and knead well to mix. On a floured surface, roll the "dough" out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into little squares or other shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
  • Yields: 2-3 dozen, depending on the size
  • Preparation Time: 40 minutes

The rice cat munchies below can be added to your cat's regular dry food diet as a little something extra.


Cat Munchies

  • 2 cups well-flavored beef, chicken or fish stock (bouillon cubes are fine)
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons oil
Bring the broth to a boil. Stir in rice, bring back to a boil, and then simmer, stirring occasionally until all broth is absorbed (about 40 minutes). Spread cooked rice on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until the rice is browned. Allow them to dry at room temperature overnight. Heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil in a frying pan. Add the rice paties about 1/2 cup at a time to the hot oil and shake and stir until the grains puff. Drain on paper towels. Store in an airtight container.
  • Yields: about 2 dozen, depending on the size
  • Preparation Time: 90 minutes, plus overnight drying
