Are there any healthy cat treats that your cats will eat? I've tried giving them those grocery store treats and they have no interest in them. any human food that isn't unhealthy for them? any suggestions??
daffy :wink: Dave
Max likes fingers and toes ...and oven roast turkey meat from the deli. He also likes Angus beef because it is cooked rare and un-spiced. Once in a while a bite or two of a honey-dip doughnut (most of the "honey" removed) I like to buy fish on sale, like whole salmon, halibut etc... they love it when I bake up a whole fish. It takes a few minutes to remove the bones but it's worth it to watch them dance around my feet like piranha.
Max & Ben teamed up one night and consumed most of a blueberry pie. Ben ate the crust and Max ate the filling. They seemed to be quite happy with that snack, I was not impressed, my carpets were not impressed. I can imagine what the vet would say. Actually, they really like Max and understand that he may have slightly different eating habits. Every time I take him to the vet, all the attendants make such a big deal out of his size. They always let me handle him for the exams. I think they are a little scared of him but love seeing him just the same.
Sometimes cats are very picky about treats. I had dogs before and they loved everything. Both my cats are a bit picky, Sugar likes dried tuna cavier and dried shrimp. Twinkie likes Bil Jac treats. Eventually you should run into something that they like or maybe some cats just dont like treats. :lol:
i'm very picky about the treats i give cujo. i was looking at a bag of treats, and like, the third ingredient was high fructose corn syrup. i'm sorry, but what the (insert bad word here) does a cat need with high fructose corn syrup? people shouldn't even eat it! i found these treats called "liv-a-littles" that are just plain old freeze dried chunks of meat. there's fish, beef, or chicken.
angelzoo- i don't do eggs, either. but he does like it when i have my monthly treat of ice cream. he sneak attacks and sticks his paws right in! one time he even grabbed my hand that had the spoon and pulled it to him. i was laughing so hard i had to let him have some.
The newest treat that he likes is Nutro Max crunchy treats. My kitten likes pretty much ANYTHING though. He gets either Nutro Max treats or Technical treats (no by products in either of them) in the morning...and when we have chicken for dinner he HAS to have a few pieces of that.
I give them Snack 21 Treats, which are just 100% dried meat with nothing added. They come in a variety of flavours and Pepe thinks they are kitty crack and tries to rip them right out of Penelope's mouth (while she's trying to eat them :shock: ).
My cat is a 3 year old male and he’s very healthy but suddenly he’s started acting like he’s trying to heave up hairballs a few times a day. It’s quite weird and he’s never really had hairballs before. He doesn’t even cough stuff up half there time just heaves. He still eats and acts perfectly...
I recently perched some chew toys for my cats. One of the toys smells like mint. I know mint is bad for cats so I need a other option. I was the toys with soap and water to get the smell off before I gave them the chew toy. Is this ok or should I just throw them away. Thank you so much.
we have 3 lovely british shorthair, but one of them has this layered and fuzzy coat - see picture below.
I try to brush her regularly, but she is the only cat of the 3 that doesn’t like brushing. And it doesn’t seem to work. I’ve noticed that she also cleans her coat much less...
