We have all heard of Cap’n Crunch but has your cat ever had Catnip Crunch? Well here is our own recipe on making your very own and it won’t destroy the roof of your kitty’s mouth! This is a very easy, healthy treat to make your cat. All you need is 4 ingredients: tuna, egg, catnip and coconut oil. If your cat doesn’t like catnip (we know, weird! But some cats don’t like it.), you can use rosemary, basil or oregano.
A can of tuna
1 Tablespoon catnip
2-5 Tablespoons coconut oil
Add egg, tuna and catnip to a bowl and mix together.
Squeeze tuna mix into a ball to remove extra liquid.
Form small balls and place into a sauce pan with the coconut oil melted. Best to use a pinching method to form the balls.
On a high heat, fry tuna balls in the coconut oil until crispy, then flip to crisp other side.
Allow to cool before feeding to cats.
These treats can be kept in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Just a heads up, your house will smell like fish so be sure to open a window or turn on a fan to help with the smell. It may drive your cats crazy waiting for their crunch-tastic treats. When catnip is consumed by cats, it relaxes and calms them but 30%-50% of cats aren’t affected by it. If it is sniffed, it has the opposite effect. Cats will generally be crazier and more energetic.
Though Catnip Crunch is healthy, they should only be given as treats. Tuna is only good for cats in moderation due to their unsaturated fat levels. We hope your cat loves them as much as ours!
