    Default What types of treats do you give your pets?

    Right now my cat gets freeze dried salmon. Someone gave me a big tub and I am getting to the end of it. I have given her regular cat treats from the grocery store but think it is better for her with the freeze dried. Sometimes she will eat a tiny piece of cheese, meat, or teaspoon of milk.

    I have made cat treats. Mixed up a batch and baked in oven. Stinks up the place. Only to have her look at it and walk away.

    So what type of treats do your pets enjoy?

    I let them lick the empty tuna can with a little in it. They will do that for hours.

    If there is left over meat not worth saving, they get it. Nothing really special though.

    My two 'kids' get a treat each time they go in their kennel........unless for punishment. So.....at least 2 a day (bedtime and 'final pee' time) so I have to keep them small.

    I like to give them a boughten treat called "Charley Bears' that Petsmart used to sell, but I am on my last package. When I went in to buy more they were no longer carrying them.

    They are 'dieting' right now so try to keep the tidbits to a minimum.......much to 'the little black girls' disgust!!

    They get absolute minimal table type food.........I don't like cleaning up pukey kennels!!

    BUT.............I do buy 'marrow bones' for them in the summer.

    Thomas has never been a food driven cat, completely bewilders me as I am a very food driven person.

    In the morning he gets a small bowl of lactose free milk and when he is being especially in the way, he gets some catnip on his blankie near the window.

    If I open tuna he gets the water out of it and is happy with that. Of course now he thinks that whenever I open a can of anything he should get the water out of it.

    The cats will occasionally eat a soft or crunchy treat from the store.

    Precious gets a cheese nib since she can gum it to paste and enjoy it.

    Cleo and Lacy get chunks of carrots, apples or what ever I'm cooking, the occasional smoked pig ear, or a piece of a Snausage. They will eat just about anything.

    Frannie - our really fat Jack Russell
    Hunter - our sweet Weimaraner
    WarHammer - our Yorkie
    Jack - our crazy, dog-like Siamese mix
    Mocha - our loving old kitty girl


    *After the dogs go outside to potty they get a treat, usually a Pupperoni. Hunter gets a whole one, Frannie a half and WarHammer a fourth.
    *Hunter and Frannie share the crust ends and the first and last pieces of bread in the loaf. We go through three to four loaves a week, so this is pretty much a daily treat.
    *Jack loves cheese. We taught him to shake hands, give high fives and give kisses by giving him cheese as a reward. If we open the fridge, he gets a few pieces of shredded cheese. He also loves ham or turkey lunch meat. He gets a few pieces a week.
    *Mocha is so old (17) and finicky. She is happy with a can of tuna. If she is going through a phase where she hates everything, she will get a couple of cans a day. Otherwise, she gets a can every few days. Sometimes she likes the Goodlife cat treats, other times she could care less.

    Cat gets tuna water when we have tuna and every night if she comes running when I yell "happy hour, treats" & shake the bag/jar she gets a couple pounce & temptations tidbits.

    At lunch he may get a couple potato chips, I love to hear him crunch them, cracks me up every time. At happy hour he gets a "bacon" strip and a new rawhide if he finished the one from the day before. *Depending on what we had, after dinner Riley licks plates & pans so I don't have to wash them.*

    I FORGOT..........mine get peanut butter if I am having a PB & J.


    They know when I get the jar out and sit and wait.

    I am trying to teach them to "open"........and then I put a fingerfull on the roof of their mouth!!! they are a hoot to watch.......and want more!

    so far their "open" is only about 1/4 inch - in other words they loosen the jaw muscle........

    My cats get tuna water, so every time I open any type of can they are in the way.

    My dog gets a little of the meat we have that night.

    Our 15 year old cat gets *sprinkles* on her dry food in the morning and when dh comes home (he's weak Sprinkles = cat treats
    My dog gets a treat after her morning walk (Blue Buffalo treat) and a rawhide chip chew about once a week. She's on a strict diet because she tends to put on weight. NO people food.
