Your kitty will love these yummy homemade treats!

Cat Crackers

Your little furry friend will simply love these tuna flavored crackers!

  • 6 oz of tuna (undrained)
  • 1 cup or 240 mL of Flour
  • 1 cup or 240 mL of cornmeal
  • 1 /3 cup or 80 mL of water


First preheat your oven to at least 350 degrees. Put all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix through thoroughly. It may be best to use your hands to mix everything up. Roll out to desired thickness but it’s suggested no bigger than 1/4 of an inch ( 6mm ) Now cut or use cookie cutters to shape into the shape you would like. Place onto a cookie sheet that is greased and bake for around 20 minutes or until the crackers look golden brown. ¬†Feed to your cat!
