Kitty treats

How often should a kitty get a treat?
post #2 of 9
My cats like Greenies and the crunchy purina tarter control treats...they've probably been eating about 3-5 pieces a day. I wonder if that's too much though because I don't know how healthy they are....I am considering filling one of their shakers with a healthy cat food they aren't used to and making them think that's a treat.

Depends on what the treat is. Most times ours gets treats at least 6 times a week - mainly cheese or something like that. I don't consider giving boiled chicken as treats - its part of their meal if that's what we are having for dinner.

Charlie got those Feline Greenies at the show this weekend.

I started giving Persi cheese a long time ago. He liked it a lot. Then I found some Vermont white cheese aged for 2 years and he about flipped out. He went crazy over it. Then not long ago, I found some Canadian cheese aged for 4 years. This stuff is strong to say the least. Now Persi hangs out around the fridge a lot, hoping that I am going to bring out the cheese and give him a treat! There is an old saying "the cheese is binding" but Persi has never had a problem (constipation) from the cheese I give him and I probably over do it but he loves it sooooooooo much!

Swanie gets "treats" every day. The treats are Royal Canin dry kibble (not his normal food). He loves for me to toss it and he chases it and I pretty much can't get downstairs in the morning without "paying the toll." Occasionally I give them a little bit of plain chicken. Cindy's not so treat oriented, so she only gets the Royal Canin occasionally.

"treats" should make up less than 10% of diet ..

My cat only wants his cat food I have tried different "treats", but the only thing he has ever eaten other than his food is leftover white rice from the takeout chinese place....whatever!

Mattie gets them twice a day after she takes her antibiotics. My SO is very liberal with treats which is not good because Mattie is no small cat.

Chloe gets them about 1x a day.

I buy all sorts of treats....right now I have some freeze-dried pieces of chicken and salmon, Meow Mix moist treats, and Temptations Hairball treats (for Mattie, which I buy even though they have petroleom in them). I have some Salmon Purrz somewhere but I won't buy those again.

I also buy the Feline Greenies and the Nutro Max treats sometimes or I just give them pieces of their regular dry food as a treat.
