Cowboy Way Cheesy Cat Treats
Cowboy Way Cheesy Cat Treats are an irresistibly gooey treat your furry friend will adore. Made with two varieties of cheese, yogurt, flour, cornmeal and water, these simple snacks have a firm exterior but melty, gooey inside.
We gave these cheesy treats to our own cats, Eenie and Lemur. Eenie found them difficult to bite into but did manage to eat some.
Lemur also enjoyed them, though she didn’t eat as many. She didn’t seem to enjoy the smell too much, but did lick them clean after each use.
Churu Rolls make an excellent kitty treat and are low in calories, gluten-free and grain free. Additionally, their high moisture content makes them suitable for both kittens and adult cats alike.
Petco Catnip Treats
Cat parents looking for ways to keep their pet content and healthy should try catnip treats. Not only will these rewards motivate your feline friend, but it can also serve as a great way to reward them or train them effectively.
Catnip treats that promote your pet’s health should contain animal protein as the first ingredient and limited plant ingredients, with no added fats or fillers that could disrupt digestion.
For instance, PureBites cat treats are made with only one ingredient: chicken! These freeze-dried treats come in bite-sized pieces so they’re easy to feed your furry friend.
Furthermore, they promote healthy teeth and gums by shifting plaque and tartar. Furthermore, their crunchy texture makes them especially helpful for cats with sensitive teeth.
Petco Catnip Powder
Catnip powder is an ideal treat for cats that don’t enjoy kibble. It comes in small half-ounce tubes (about 6 calories each) and you can easily squirt on top of your cat’s meal as a fun reward.
When giving catnip to your furry friend, it is essential to select the correct type. Look for a high-quality, potent blend that has been grown locally and harvested at its peak potency.
For instance, The From the Field Ultimate Blend Catnip and Silver Vine Mix is an ideal option if you need a highly potent catnip treat. This organic, sustainable product uses 100% natural catnip grown in America that’s blended with silver vine for extra stimulation.
