Crunchy Tuna Cat Treats

I will admit, I’m a bit of a crazy cat lady. There’s just something about those moody, independent fur-balls that I can’t seem to get enough of. That’s why I decided to whip up some homemade cat treats for my favorite felines, Simba (the fat orange tabby) and Dinah (the tiny brown tabby).

After the treats cooled from the oven, Simba graciously volunteered to pose for the camera while doing the all-important taste test. Dinah is much more camera shy, so you’ll just have to settle for Simba’s two paws up review!

  1. I just made these. My one cat won’t stay away from them! 🙂

    I decided to take a ball of dough and put it between two sheets of parchment paper then roll it out, then I used a pizza cutter to cut them into squares. I think it made getting them done more quickly and ensure that they cooked evenly. It seemed to work, seeing as I can’t keep Montgomery Purrns away from them 🙂

  2. How should these be stored? What do you think the “shelf life” on these might be? I’d like to give them to a few friends but I won’t be seeing one for a bit. Thanks!
