“Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.”  Oscar Wilde

For the hordes of you who follow this blog, you now know that cats shall soon come into my life.  As a people pleasing, and obviously a cat pleasing, person, I decided to do a bit extra to welcome the cats into our home.  I decided to whip up a batch of cat treats and hope that my husband doesn’t find them before the cats arrive.  He’s a good eater!


1 can tuna, drained, which drains to about 5 ounces

1 cup coconut flour

1 tablespoon extra light olive oil

1 tablespoon dried catnip or parsley

1 egg

1-2 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine drained tuna, egg, coconut flour, water, olive oil and catnip. Blend in a food processor until mixture is smooth and completely combined.  The mixture is different than a regular dough. It’s not very sticky.

Pinch off pieces about the size of a large crouton and place on the baking sheet.
Place into the oven.  You only have to bake these for about 12 to 14 minutes, depending on the size of the pinch.  They should be dried on the top.  Crunchier is better.

happy cat
I’m new here.  This is my happy face.

Allow to cool completely and store in a jar in the fridge.  These keep for about a week.  Cats keep longer than that!
