Figaro’s Favourite Cat Treats

Share Button

On top of their dry and wet food, my cats enjoy cat treats. The moment they hear the crinkle of a bag, they are meowing for treats. I try to keep a good stash of cat treats on hand for that occasional late-night kitty snack!

However, cat treats are not cheap. I usually try to buy them when they are on sale, but in all honesty, they rarely go on sale and I am left paying full price. With 9 cats, I need a lot of treats. Thankfully, I am able to make homemade cat treats at a fraction of the cost! The newest member to our cat-loving family is an adorable Ragdoll kitten named Figaro and he loves his treats. Figaro’s Favourite Cat Treats are easy to make and your cat will love them!

Figaro's Favourite Cat Treats are the perfect treat for your kitty cat.

You Will Need:

4 oz can of tuna (in water)
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt

Figaro's Favourite Cat Treats are the perfect addition in your kitty cat's diet!

Figaro’s Favourite Cat Treats Are Kitty Delicious!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, mix together all ingredients until combined.

Divide the dough into 2 balls.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is 1/4 inch thick.

Using either a pizza cutter or cookie cutters, cut out the treats.

Place treats onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes.

  32. Margaret Imecs says:

    Wow! That looks delicious! It’s a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

  33. Silvia D says:

    I think our cats would love some homemade treats! Thanks for the recipe!

  34. How long will these last? How best to store them? Can they be frozen? (I’m guessing not).

    • Kristen says:

      I had them out about a week with no problem. Obviously, an air tight container would help them last longest. I don’t see why you couldn’t free them. They would probably stay good for a few months in the freezer.

  35. Marlene Cavalcante says:

    I will be making for a craft sale for the church, how long will they keep in a closed jar?

    • Kristen says:

      That is fabulous Marlene! I think they would stay good for a week in an airtight container. In a freezer for a few months as well!

  36. how long do these last before they become old? can the be in an airtight container on the counter or do they need to be in the fridge?

    • Kristen says:

      I kept mine in an airtight container on the counter for about a week. I think to get them to last longer, airtight and in the fridge would work too!

  37. Does anyone know the shelf life and if they need to be refrigerated?

  38. Jo-Anne Pfoh says:

    i have made these a few times !!! they love them

  39. I have to show this to my friend! She has two cats, and they’ve both started turning their noses up at the treats she gives them.

  40. That’s really cool. I’ve never heard of homemade cat treats before. They sound like any cat would love them.

  41. Oh my goodness what a great idea. I’ve never try to make homemade treats. It would be fun to do especially since a lot of my friends have a lot of cats.

  42. I know a lot of people that make their own dog food, so why not for cats as well. I bet they love these treats. It’s like homemade cookies.

  43. Looks like a quick and east treat. Your cats are adorable!

  44. First off, I love how easy this recipe is to make! Seriously! I also think this would be a wonderful idea as a gift for any cat-mommy.

  45. I’ve made homemade dog treats before, but never cat treats! I’m not sure why! I bet my Oliver would love these!!

  46. I can see why your cats love these treats, so many tasty ingredients. I love homemade pet treats, there is way too much processed stuff in store bought treats, unless you buy the super expensive organic kind.

  47. Heather says:

    My husband is allergic to cats, and I miss them so. My mom thankfully still has cats that I can snuggle and pamper. They’ll love these treats.

  48. I would have never thought to make treats for my two cats, Meep and Hazel. I need to try to recipe. I know they would love them!

  49. I’ve never thought about making homemade cat treats before. What a cool idea! I’m sure my cat would be totally into these since he loves tuna.

  50. I am sure cats will enjoy this treat! Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

  51. Jennifer G says:

    How cute are these? I am going to share them with my neighbour who has a cat. Maybe I will make her a batch myself.

  52. Stephanie says:

    I will give these a try. FYI, there is tuna for Cats, Nine Lives and Frys (Krogers) and KMart used to sell it as well. It is plain tuna and cheaper than tuna d old for people. Also, if less grain is better there are protein powders that can be used as flours and all sorts of high protein flours instead of grain. I see these at my local Winco, so I save money and packaging. I guess if grain isn’t good for kittys, these might be better. If you try any before I do, post the recipe. I also read somewhere there was some stuff you could spray on cat food to make it like Crack to cats. I read it from a vet, who said that is what they put on dry food & treats to make them like Crack to the Kitty’s.
