No-Bake Tuna Balls

  • 1 can tuna
  • Dry cat food
  • Catnip
  • Mayonnaise


  • To make these easy tuna treats, start by draining the tuna and placing it on a plate. In a separate bowl, crush a handful of dry cat food, sprinkle in some catnip, and mix. Add the dry mixture to the tuna on the plate. Drop a spoonful of mayonnaise onto the tuna mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Form the mixture into balls (or whatever shape you like!) and refrigerate until they are set. These treats keep for about one week in the refrigerator. Feel free to omit the catnip if you already know your kitty isn’t a fan.
  • While Mayonnaise isn’t toxic to cats it also isn’t good for them and should only be given in moderation, so limit the number of treats your cat eats.
