• Let the mashed tuna and water sit for 15 minutes.
• Pour broth into covered ice cube trays. It is okay if you get some of the tuna in with the broth, but your cat will likely still just lick the broth and not eat the tuna.
• Freeze the broth.
• When ready to use, defrost or heat up one broth cube to room temperature before giving to your cat. For the best success, feed your cat the broth before his regular dry food.
