* 2 cups of water,or as needed



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, mash the mackeral into small pieces. Mix in the oil and water. Add the mackeral mixture to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. The dough is tough, so use your hands. Roll dough out to about 1/4" thickness and cut into 1/4" bits, using a knife or pizza cutter. Mound the bits onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 25 minutes. During baking, occasionally toss the bits with two wooden spoons, so they brown evenly. Turn the heat off and allow the treats to cool thoroughly before removing and storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This recipe freezes very well for longer storage.

YES!! !YES!! I am SO GLAD you posted these, Westie! My kitties and I thank you!




I somehow picked up a can of tuna in oil and it's been kicking around my kitchen. I'm anxious to try this and see if our girls like the homemade treats any better or less than the store-bought kind that we call 'junk food'. :)


Again, you made my day. These have been copied/pasted into Word and printed out.


Did I mention I'm so thrilled?
