Cat Treats - Good Or Bad?
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.
