Parmesan Tuna Crunchers for Cats

Pets are not only fun to have in your life, but they also have major health benefits. Having the responsibility of taking care of a pet gives you a sense of purpose and achievement, which might be why having one boosts your self-esteem. Kids who own pets are often better at expressing themselves and relating to others.

We want to treat our pets the same way we treat ourselves. If you’re striving to have a healthier household, homemade treats are a great option for your pet. Homemade treats do not have preservatives to keep them shelf-stable like store-bought treats. This treat is an easy, cat-friendly recipe that your feline friends will love.
