Tuna and Pumpkin Cat Treats Wholesome Ingredients:

Before diving into the recipe, let’s take a closer look at the key ingredients that make these cat treats a healthy choice for your furry companion.

The Recipe:

Step 1: Prepare Ingredients

Begin by draining the water from the canned tuna. Measure out the pumpkin puree and fish oil (if using). This initial step sets the stage for a tantalizing blend of flavors.

Step 2: Mash and Mix

In a bowl, mash the tuna using a fork. Add the pumpkin puree and fish oil, if desired. Thoroughly mix the ingredients, ensuring a harmonious blend that will make each bite a culinary delight for your cat.

Step 3: Shape the Treats

Take small portions of the mixture and shape them into bite-sized balls or tiny patties. This step adds a personal touch to the treats, making them visually appealing and easy for your cat to enjoy.

Step 4: Chill

Place the shaped treats on a plate or tray and allow them to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This brief waiting period allows the treats to firm up, ensuring a satisfying texture for your cat.

Step 5: Serve

Once adequately chilled, these oat-free tuna and pumpkin cat bites are ready to be served. Present them in your cat’s dish or offer them as a special treat during playtime. Observe your cat’s joy as they savor each delicious morsel.

Step 6: Storage

Store any remaining treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator. While these treats are best enjoyed fresh, they can be kept for a few days without compromising their quality.


Creating homemade treats for your cat is an enriching experience that deepens the bond between you and your feline companion. The Tuna and Pumpkin Cat Treats not only prioritize your cat’s health but also cater to their discerning palate with natural and nutritious ingredients.
