17th Day of Christmas: Crunchy Cat Treats  
Here is another kitty treat which is apparently goes over well with the kitties of everyone's lives. This is brought to you by Design Sponge who's kitties love them and some of her commenters were grateful for them... as were their kitties. So I think they might be something of a hit.

What You Need:
1 (5 ounce) can tuna, no salt added and packed in water, drained
1 cup oat flour*
1 large egg
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 heaping tablespoon dried catnip

You do realize that your cat is going to be in love because of the catnip. He might actually be high...

Mix It Up

  1. Place oven rack in upper third of over and preheat on 350.

  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  3. In food processor combine tuna, oat flour, egg, olive oil and catnip. Blend until smooth. Should be thick and pliable but not that sticky.

  4. Roll into 1/2 teaspoon balls and place on cookie sheet. You can take a skewer and make and x in the top.

  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (keep an eye on them for variations in ovens) until they are dried on top and slightly browned.

  6. Allow to cool completely before giving to kitties.

  7. Store them in an air tight container. Keep an eye on these as they are perishable.

I've ready kitties will steal the dough right off the trays so watch for that.

Two drugged cats and a sedated dog for Christmas? I think I'll just save this one for later use :P

LOL Well, if you don't give them too much they should be okay but they are a little loopy.

When I still had indoor cats they would just get so happy and lovey dovey when they had it.

Cats totally get high on catnip. Ours used to lie on the floor and drool uncontrollably while she pawed at it. *lol*

It is so funny that they love it so much.

I remember my Sydney with her catnip toys just rubbing her face all over it and then looking like she was in love. She'd often run over to one of us and decide the best thing in the world was love which was rare for her. She was stingy with her love.

My sister's cat mellowed out. She could be rather gruff but once the catnip came out she was a little tamed thing.
