For cats, roll dough into 1/4" thickness and bake on a sheet scored into small sections 1/4" square or smaller.

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.
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.
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
