1 tablespoon vegetable or cod liver oil
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup water
- In large bowl, mash the tuna (or chicken). Add the flour and powdered milk, mixing well. Stir in the water, oil and egg, mixing well. Mixture will be sticky.
- Shape mixture into 1/2-inch sized balls. Place on greased baking sheets. Press balls to flatten.

*Warning: Tuna can be dangerous to a cat if eaten often. It contains an enzyme that breaks down (destroys) vitamin B1 (Thiamine). This can be harmful to a cat and can lead to a deficiency of B1 causing neurological problems such as seizures and can eventually result in death.
