Cat Treats - Good Or Bad?

Posted by Natures Pet Place Admin on

To treat or not to treat, is the real question for cat owners. Cats are notorious for being picky eaters. What if a treat becomes an addiction? Is there a danger that treats could put your pet off their regular diet? Although cats do quickly become fond of their treats, if their regular dining experience is a quality, delectably tasty pet food, there is nothing risky about indulging your favorite feline with a tasty treat. And there are more reasons to treat your cat than just indulgence.

Training: Treats are the perfect method of training a cat. They respond well to rewards for desired behaviors. Encourage them with a bit of the good stuff!

Special Times: Although entertaining guests is a special time for the human host, it may be a stressful time for their furry housemate. Try to put a positive spin on company for a socially dysfunctional kitty. Offer treats during the visit.

Healthcare: A cat that is accustomed to receiving treats, eagerly looking forward to what happens after hearing the familiar rustle of a package, is a cat who will be easy to administer medication to. Although a pet owner may do their utmost to prevent disease or injury, these things do happen. Slipping a pill fragment into a soft,chewy treat makes a difficult time a bit easier.

Nutrition: Although the word "treat" often indicates a morsel of food that has no nutritional value, many pet food manufacturers are offering an assortment of healthy options. Cat treats today are often a healthy, nutritional supplement.
