healthy treats

What do you give your cats as treats?

I am looking for healthy (preferably grain free but not not grain fee will do too) treats for my two cats to reward them or just make their life sweet here and there

My cats really love Natural Balance Perfect Bites Rabbit Formula. It's not entirely without grain, but it doesn't have corn, soy, or wheat. I wouldn't want my cats to pig out on them, but they're healthy enough that I don't have a problem with feeding them a few here and there.

I should add that the treats I mentioned are made from rabbits, not for rabbits. That confused me the first time my friend sent me some for my cats. In spite of the name, they are intended for felines.

In my area Petco carries that line, so you might want to have a look there if there's one near you.

I feed the girls greenies, but that is because they won't let me brush their teeth. They love the Tuna flavor, but will eat the chicken. Ziggy goes absolutely cray for them and any time I get into the cabinet they are in, they are both at my feet. Ziggs even got into a bag of them we had left out and ate most of the bag in one sitting.

My roommate left out another bag we had gotten and she was halfway into it before I got them from her.

I give my girls Pure Bites, which are freeze-dried treats. So, for example, the Chicken flavour is freeze-dried chicken and it has only one ingredient, namely chicken. My girls love these treats and they're healthy (and obviously grain-free). The only Pure Bites' flavour they don't care for is the liver.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

I do a variety of treats, but lately they have been getting Wanna treats. They are freeze dried and marketed for dogs, but I get them for everyone. They love the rabbit, the only one I've tried so far

I think freeze-dried treats should be good, no grains,nothingelse added. ET loves his greenies dental treats which I gave only during grooming session and when its time for grooming, he will beg for it. Apparently its 2 calories per treat. Bag says to feed something like upto 10pcs or more per day? but I have never given that much, I restrict to 5pcs a day for ET.

Treats are super expensive, but if you don't mind the price, Evo treats are grain-free, no corn/soy/by-product, and its super tasty. I decided to buy Evo Salmon & Herring kibbles instead and ET still loves it, he can literally dance when I hand feed him, I call it the "Lion Dance".
