Cat Treat Gifts

A treat is something out of the ordinary that’s given to enforce good behavior, as a reward, or because your cat is giving you “that look.” Five stand-out brands follow, and although they’re all engineered to make your cat want more, a few have health benefits and some even help clean their teeth. Remember, pet obesity is on the rise, so please give treats responsibly.

Cat-Man-Do Bonito Flakes Cat Treats
Dried Bonito Flakes are a cat treat or food enhancer that is quickly growing in popularity. Bonito is a bony high-protein, low-calorie fish that’s part of the Tuna family. It is most commonly fished in the Sea of Japan, flaked and dried through Cat-Man-Doo’s special process, and then put into a container for your cat to enjoy. Containing high amounts of natural fish oils for a healthy, shiny coat, Bonito Flakes have no additives or preservatives.

Feline Greenies Dental Treats
It’s easy to overlook brushing your cat’s teeth, especially if one has a kitty who hates the idea of a human touching any part of her mouth. Enter Feline Greenies Dental Treats — delicious 1.25-calorie morsels that are the only treat approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council to prevent tartar buildup on your cat’s pearly whites. Containing no preservatives or artificial flavors, Greenies come in five flavors — Ocean Fish, Oven-Roasted Chicken, Savory Salmon, Succulent Beef, and Tempting Tuna. Not a substitute for regular teeth cleaning by a veterinarian.
