Homemade Cat Treat with Tuna Recipe

Next month marks my kitties 7 year adoption anniversary with me.  The story of how they came to me is pretty serendipitious!

A little over 7 years ago my cat, Jasmine, got out of the house and ran away from home….I searched and searched and searched for her but after 2 months I had pretty much lost hope.  In one last attempt to see if the animal shelter had found her I made a trip there looking in all of the cages….but she was no where to be found.

While I was looking I saw this adorable ball of fluff that was about 8 weeks old, all alone, and looking scared in her cage.  I opened the cage and pulled her out.  She immediately rolled over on her back to let me rub her belly and the intense purring began….I was immediately in love and knew she had to come home with me.  

Well, when I went to shut the cage door there was a sudden rustling in the newspaper and the next thing I realize– a little boy cat is flying into my arms!  Where on Earth did this second ball of fluff come from?  

I could have sworn the cage was empty except for the little girl I had already taken!  Immediately they began nuzzling and loving on each other and I knew there was no way I could separate the two!

When I headed to the front of the Animal Shelter to fill out the adoption form the woman said “Oh good, you’re taking them together….I was heartbroken thinking they would be adopted separately”….little did she know they had conspired the whole plan to sucker me in together! 😉

As soon as I got them home they started exploring the house and making themselves right at home….then, all of a sudden, I heard a scratching at the back door…..yep, Jasmine had found her way home….that VERY day!  What are the odds?!

So, I went from having one old kitty to having a family of 3!  Unfortunately Jasmine is no longer with us but Sammy and Delilah are still conspiring shenanigans and make life interesting all around!

About how long do these treats last? Do you ever refrigerate them to make them last longer? If so, do your cats still enjoy them cold from the fridge?

They sound yum, I can't wait to give it to my cat tigger for his birthday on March 1st the day before my birthday. How often would you give them to your cat? And what could you use if your cat did not like fish? ????

My cats get a couple each day. These are pretty high calorie for kitties so you don't want to give them too many. If you don't want to use fish you can always make these using canned chicken. I've done it both ways and my kitties LOVE them either way!
