I am somewhat of a crazy cat lady. I mean, I only have one cat, but he is one of my best buddies. When I am down, he knows it and comforts me. If you have a spoiled cat like mine, you love to make him feel special. I like to make him these “Cat Crackers” to spoil him. They are not only easy and foolproof, but cheap and since you are making them, you know what is in them and they do not contain puurrr-servatives. (a little cheesy cat humor for you)

These homemade cat crackers are the perfect gift to make for your cats because they will truly love them. They don’t take long to make and are pretty cheap as well. Try not to let your cat get addicted to them! You should only feed a couple of them a day.

Homemade Cat Crackers Recipe


Easy Peasy Cat Crackers:

1 1/4  cup of wheat flour

3/4 Cup Cornmeal

1/3 cup water

1 can tuna in water, (don’t drain it)

a pinch of salt


1. Combine all ingredients, making a dough. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Your dough should be thick like an icebox cookie dough is.

2. Roll out dough thin on some dusting of wheat flour to prevent sticking, about 1/4 inch. It doesn’t matter if it is a perfect circle. You will be rolling it out again a few times until it’s gone.

3. Cut with a knife or small fondant cutter. I didn’t have my fondant molds handy, so I used a large frosting tip. You could also use some fondant cutters if you have them.

4. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool and watch your cat enjoy. Store in a covered plastic container or bag for a couple weeks.

  1. Love this idea, I do have a cat she is very much spoiled and I’m sure would love homemade cookies, think my dogs might also..thanks for sharing.
    (tried to watch your video but my connection isn’t good :/ )

  2. Do these need refrigerated?

    1. Nope, not at all. They harden up from the baking. I would say if you want them to stay fresher, longer, you might want to refrigerate them, but it isn’t nessisary. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Would there be any harm in using white flour instead of wheat?

    1. Leslie, I wouldn’t think so at all.

  4. Made these today waiting to see if my cats are going to like them…

    1. I hope your kitties do!! Let me know what they thought of them, Wendy.

  5. Hi Christine,
    Can I use any kind of canned cat food? I ask because I’m bringing home a pure bred Siberian kitten in the next couple weeks. The kitten will be on a strict diet for its first yesr. I would like to try this with the suggested type of food that the breeer suggested which is Fancy Feast Classic Chicken, no gravy. The breeder suggested this kind because its low carb and better for the cats dental health. I would like to make these to use as a reward for clicker training. So if that is a yes to my question would I be using a 3 ounce or 6 ounce can of the cat’s food? Thank you for your time and assistance.

    1. I wouldn’t use canned cat food to make this recipe. If you are looking for a low carb cat treat recipe, I also wouldn’t suggest theses ones as they contain cornmeal and wheat flour as a base. As far as using canned cat food in general, I don’t give my cat that stuff at all. It never looked or smelled appetizing to me, so I wouldn’t feed my kitty it. I suggest if you want to give a treat that you cook and shred some chicken and offer it. I am not vet, though, so maybe check with one.

    1. I made them, but I did not have tuna so I used cheese spread, parmesan and cheddar cheese with yogurt and 1 cup of flour. It worked lovely. And my cat approves. Tuna crackers to cheese crackers!!

  8. I use oatmeal (food processor, until flour texture). Add some peanut butter, as well. Can also use chicken livers (cooked lightly). I alternate ingredients. Use whatever I have on hand. Thanks.
