Tuna pie recipe for cats

Most cats love fish but, ¿they can eat it? ¡Of course it is! As long as it is offered appropriately. Thus, this type of food should not constitute the entire diet of the animal, but it can be part of its diet in moderate quantities. Fish provides a large amount of proteins, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and multiple benefits that your cat will appreciate if you offer him fish from time to time. To do this, you have the option of cooking the product boiled or grilled, since raw is not advisable, or use it to prepare homemade recipes for cats like this one..

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 1 capsule of fish oil (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon catnip
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

Preparation

  1. Take a bowl and beat the eggs with the olive oil and the fish oil. Also, preheat the oven to 180 ºC, with heat up and down.
  2. Drain the tuna cans, and mix the fish with the previous preparation.
  3. Now, add the catnip and continue beating. This product, in addition to providing all its benefits (such as the calming effect), will make the animal even more eager to devour the cake.
  4. Sift the flour with the baking soda and integrate it into the dough using gentle enveloping movements. It is essential that the flour is integral to ensure that the animal can digest it without problems.
  5. Grease a mold with oil, pour the dough and bake the cake for 30-45 minutes, or until done, with heat only below.
  6. When it is ready, remove it from the oven, let it cool, remove it from the mold and offer it to your cat.

With the amounts indicated we will obtain a small cat cake, since, despite being made with products suitable for felines, too high a quantity could lead to vomiting or diarrhea, especially if the animal tends to eat voraciously.

Cat meat pie recipe

As felines are mainly carnivorous animals, both meat and fish are suitable to include in their daily diet, always respecting the nutritional needs of the animal. But, ¿what kind of meat is the most suitable for them? In general, the chicken, beef and turkey, grilled or boiled to ensure their safety. Thus, to prepare this cake for cats you can select any of these products.

Vegetarian pie recipe for cats

We said in the previous section that cats are mainly carnivores, but not strictly or only, so that they are also they can consume vegetables and fruits occasionally. Due to the domestication of the species, it has evolved and adapted its digestive system to easily tolerate foods such as pumpkin, carrot, peas, strawberries, watermelon or apple, among many others. So, we have selected certain products, but if you prefer, or are not to the liking of your feline, you have the option of replacing them with others. To do this, we recommend consulting our article on recommended fruits and vegetables for cats.

Ingredients

  • 1 and a half cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 peach
  • 1 pear
  • 1 egg
  • 60 ml olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

  1. In a bowl or container, beat the egg with the oil and honey. Besides, preheat the oven to 180 ºC with heat up and down.
  2. Separately, peel the fruit, remove the seeds, pit and core, and crush the two pieces, or chop them as small as possible..

  5. Pour the batter into a pan greased with oil and bake the cat cake for 30-45 minutes, with heat only below.

Honey is a product that provides multiple benefits to felines, which is why we have decided to include it in our vegetarian recipe. Among them, the high energy intake and its high bactericidal power stand out, so that you can also offer it to your best friend directly from the spoon.

Recommendations for giving your cat a cake

As we have already pointed out throughout the article, despite all cakes for cats being composed of natural foods and suitable for them, we must keep in mind some recommendations:

  • Observe your cat and discover its tastes. Felines are selective and very exquisite animals, with a much more delicate palate than dogs, so it is not surprising that some of them refuse certain foods. Also, not all cats are the same and, therefore, not all cats tolerate all foods in the same way. For all this, knowing the tastes of your kitten and knowing if it has any allergies or intolerance, is essential to ensure that it enjoys its cake..
  • Watch the portions. A cat cake should not be a regular food in their diet due to the amount of flour and eggs it contains. Yes, it can represent a good prize or food to celebrate a special day, such as his birthday, so you can prepare a cake from time to time but not every day.
  • A cake for each cat. If you live with more than one feline, you will have observed that, in general, they are territorial animals and owners of their belongings. Thus, in the same way that it is not recommended to use the same litter box for two cats, we do not advise offering the same cake for both. Then, ¿how can you do it? Very simple, you have the option of cooking two separate cakes, or cutting the prepared cat cake in half to place each portion in the corresponding feeders.
