I know, I know. there was a crack in the universe and I purchased treats for my cats. The doctor at work brought some in to help distract our kitty patients from exams and medical workups, so I thought it would be OK in moderation. That and I really wanted the dental ball to work out. Sigh…
At 2 kcalories a treat with 20% protein and 30% moisture, your cat can have a few a day. I have almost taught the cats their name by saying their name + come = “Leeloo Come!” and she trots right over for her treat. Of course, they don’t like these treats enough to get them out of a treat ball:
But for training they have worked quite nicely. Sometimes too well, since Cooper runs over and takes Leeloo’s treat sometimes. Neither cat will take treats or food from my hand but if I set it down in front of them, they will sure gobble it up.
Next up… I’m going to try to teach them to fetch the treats!
Treats and exercise in one?! Awesome.
