Whiskas Temptations Treats for Cats
Pros: Cat loves them, plenty to use sparingly for good behavior and the ingredient list is decent
My cat, Nova, LOVES these treats. We use them to reinforce his good behavior, especially when introducing new members of the feline family. Usually 2-3 are enough to please him and he's finished. They don't affect his appetite and he never begs for them but the moment I say "Treat" he definitely perks up and is alert!
Pros: cat loves them, will not refuse them
Cons: cat becomes addicted, bugs you all day for them, sometimes affects their appetite for real food
I thought it was great when my cat devoured these little treats. But, there is something in these treats that makes them behave as if they are drug addicted. My cat will really beg for them and ignore her food tray. Even for just one. She paces back and forth near where I keep them and cries for them constantly, especially when she's hungry. She is confusing hunger with, "I gotta have Temptations now, PUH LEEEEZE!"
I've decided to cut way back. To 5 a day then not everyday. The packages says 10 for some and 15 for others. Maybe she'll forget about them. But not if I give her even just one. She will hound me.
These are the only treats I can get BB to really enjoy she loves the crunch and as I'm would like to assume by the way she eats them she loves the taste . They are by far the best eaten treats I've ever bought for her . Happy Kitties never lie and I'm sure if BB could she would give it 5 "Meows" !
Pros: Cats love this, great price, nice and small
My cats love these treats. Great price and size. I gave these to a cat at a store and she loved them.
Pros: cats love them
Cons: There are much better treats out there
I think all cats love these. I think it's in the cat's handbook.
These treats are sold everywhere, they are often on sale, they put coupons out and come in a large variety of flavors and types. They just aren't the best treats out there for an obligate carnivore. I try to keep their consumption of these to a minimum but I do keep them in the house. Even the dog loves them
So, if your cat loves these like mine love these, keep them around. Just don't make them a main part of their diet or even their main treat source. IMO, Pure Bites are the king of cat treats but these do deserve an honorable mention.
Pros: cats are addicted to these treats, good for positive reinforcement
Cons: sketchy ingredients
I always give out these treats sparingly because of the ingredients.. which include meat by products, animal fat, and a very long list of complex chemical sounding things. It's definitely not the most high quality stuff out there.
I try to opt for healthier treats, but every now and then this is a special treat. The way I think of it is as junk food for cats- it tastes great, but too much of it isn't going to be that good for them in the long run.
Pros: My Cat Will Litterally Do Anything For These
Cons: Iffy ingrediant list
These are the only cat treats that I have found that my adult cat will eat. He scarfs them down and looks for more when he has finished eating them. I have tried many other types of treats, but these are the only ones that he will actually eat at all. I don't like the ingredients that are listed on the product though. I know that my cat would probably be a bit healthier if I could find other treats he would eat instead. I limit the amount of these treats that he is given each day to make sure that he stays healthy. So far these great tasting treats haven't caused him any stomach troubles or made him sick in anyway. If he likes them, I'm happy to give them to him.
"Cats eat them" probably doesn't sound like much. But when you have a kitty with end-stage renal failure, and you're at the "feed him anything he'll eat" point, this stuff saved the day. I let him eat as many as he would because he just lost interest in most other foods. In his last week on this earth, he lost interest in these too as well, but I'm thankful that he enjoyed these for the time that he did.
Edit 2/28/16: Just wanted to add to this a bit. Someone had suggested that in order to pill her cat, she puts the pill in a Pill Pocket, then rolls it in crushed up Temptations. I have to say, Sara didn't have a problem with the pill pockets at the time, but she eventually stopped liking them. After almost a MONTH of trying various things, and every day (twice a day) being a struggle, I tried that last night. And it worked! So, these have saved the day (twice a day!) yet again for me.
