Homemade Cat Treats: Tuna Cat Balls

tuna homemade cat treats

I think all cats like fish, so I was excited to try this Tuna Homemade Cat Treats recipe on my cat. It’s a simple one and makes small balls of tasty tuna treat that they will love. With only 4 ingredients it’s not going to break the bank or send you into a frenzy trying to find everything in the supermarket. In fact you will probably already have these ingredients at home.


1/2 cup flour (I used wholewheat flour)

1/4 cup of milk

1/2 tin drained tuna (in oil or water)

1 egg

Water to blend the ingredients if needed.



#1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius (fan assisted)

#2. Combine the tuna and the flour until thoroughly mixed.

#3. Add the egg and the milk to the bowl

#4. Mix all the ingredients together and then roll into small balls using 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture.

#5. Place on greaseproof paper on a baking tray.

#6. Bake for 10-15 minutes and leave to cool


These smelt really nice when they were cooking and they were a real hit with our cat. I think the tuna was a definite plus for him, although I could probably have made them a little smaller for him so they were more bite size.

Regardless of the size he enjoyed chomping down on them!
