Real Food for Cats: Tuna Cakes

  • 2 eggs

  • 6-ounce can tuna, drained and flaked (we used water-packed albacore)
  • 4 slices bread, cubed into kitty-bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon iodized salt
  • 1 teaspoon brewer's yeast, see notes
  • 1 teaspoon bonemeal, see notes
  • 2 tablespoons margarine

Beat eggs lightly in a bowl. Add the tuna, bread cubes, salt, brewer's yeast and bonemeal. Mix thoroughly until moistened.

Form into small patties (we made ours about 2 inches in diameter). Melt the margarine in a skillet and fry the patties over medium heat until golden brown. When cool, crumble each patty and serve. Makes 3 to 5 kitty servings.

Notes: Brewer's yeast, a great source of high-quality protein and vitamins, is widely available in health food stores. Bonemeal, a good source of calcium, is hard to find. Most health-food stores can order it for you. Or you can substitute calcium carbonate or TUMS tablets, crushed.
