Cat treats,

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Is it normal for some cats to not eat cat treats? I am asking because I once in a while will get some treats for the cats. The 3 younger ones go nuts for them, [Rusty, Panther and Angel] but Missy and also I found out Tuffy could care less about them.

I am thinking the maybe Tuffy won't eat them because he seems to only eat where the cat feeder is. He seems to be real well set in his ways. He has 2 places where he sleeps and only these 2 places, and will only eat in the back room where all the cats eat. I will have to give him a treat when he is eating and see if he will eat it then. Today he was on our bed and I gave him a treat and he licked at it then he didn't know if he should eat it or not, he watched the others eating them and he got more interested but still would not eat one with the rest of the cats.

I know this is not a big deal for his health or anything like that but I am just wondering if others have noticed the same thing in there cats? Sometimes I wonder if Tuffy came from a real strict house, he will sleep on the bed with us but I hardly ever see him on the living room furniture or on the table and never on the kitchen counters. I wish Tuffy would teach the others to stay off the table and kitchen counters lol.

Most of my cats turn up their noses at store-bought treats, but give them Kitty Kaviar, or Wildside Salmon watch out for your fingers!

One of my cats won't touch kitty treats...or at least the ones I have tried. She is picky about anything other than dry food.

Twitch won't touch treats & never has liked them. Lily however will eat your fingers to get the treat. She is at that stage where she eats everything, though.

Lilo turns her nose up at every treat I have ever bought. EXCEPT....Whiskas Temptations. They come in like 4 different flavors.She loves every flavor available. And she would do just about anything for just 1 !! That is actually how I taught her to give me "kissys". Now she will not give me a kissy unless I have a treat in hand.
Lilo is stuck up and very picky and she LOVES these. They cost about $2.00 a bag at Wal-Mart.
Garfield and Petals would eat just about any treat handed to them.
And they also LOVE these treats.

So now i know i'm not alone.

Lucky is very picky about her treats. she loves temptations and she loves cheese. I tried getting greenies and other treats that are good for their teeth....she always gives me a look like she knows what i'm trying to do...and she ain't buying!

Rambo on the other hand...he'll eat anything that isn't tied down!

My two cats love feline greenies. All I have to say is "treat" and they come running

my cats won't agree on anything, including treats. meowser loves greenies, munch hates them. munch loves whisker lickins, meowser hates them. i was very disappointed that they've actually agreed to both hate the kitty kaviar. the ONLY thing i've found that they'll agree on are the friskies treats in salmon and shrimp flavor.

I don't feed commercial treats, as I had a bad experience with Cajun when he was younger, due to giving treats. He got horrible colitus and as soon as I stopped the treats, he got better. I urge anyone coming to my clinic not to use commercial treats, as I have seen many cases just like that. I do give my cats feline Greenies occasionally but they don't all eat them.

I tried the Whiskas Temtations today and he ate it.........
post #14 of 21
well, here's my experience
Pixel will eat kitty kaviar & dried chicken breast meat planks
Cable will eat kitty kaviar, those parmesan cheese tablets, feline greenies & some puffy things i got when Mouse was still alive because they were low-cal - kinda like puffed rice
Java will eat kitty kaviar & wildside salmon
the ferals eat everything - i get rid of unpopular inside cat treats by feeding them to my outside cats

Three of my four LOVE Whiskas Tempatations. I say "who wants yummies?" and they come running. My oldest, Katie, turns her nose up them, though!

My cats eat Greenies, Old Mother Hubbard cat treats, Zuke's, HaloPets Liv-a-Littles, and Plaid Cat Treats. Lola used to love the Kitty Kaviar but Leo and Gracie don't like it. So I have a spare can just sitting here.

just a question about the Whiskas Temptaions...........i bought the "hairball formula" ones and he ate it but then i read the back and it said no to feed it to cats under 6 months........is it harmful? and are the non hairball ones also not for cats under 6 months?

Thanks.........

My cat Ginger has a very sensitive stomach. The vet said the treats were bad for her. She had to have medicine to help her tummy go back to normal. Her stomach was inflamed. I feel really bad when I give Tiger treats and that she can't have any. Is there something that I can give her that she will consider a treat that won't hurt her stomach?
post #20 of 21
she will only eat it off of the floor tho......she wont take it from our hands, only when we put it on the floor.............

Mine mostly won't eat treats, except the cranberry ones, funnily enough! But offer them little cubes of cooked fish or cheddar cheese and they roll over in ecstasy. Persil and Wellington will steal cheese out of your sandwich if you turn your head.
