    OK, so I generally buy treats for Butterball each time I go shopping. The little guy is spoiled as far as treats are concerned. So I'm browsing all the different treats and one in particular caught my eye because it was cheap. It's called Crunch and Clean by Hartz. It has "Dental Shield" which removes tartar. So I give Butterball several pieces and he scarfs them down. He's not even using his teeth. He's just swallowing the pieces whole. What's the point? He chomps occasionally but he usually just swallows them whole.

    My cats do the same thing with treats so there is no point in buying the smaller dental treats.
    You can get the bigger ones from the vets.
    They are big and have to be chewed.

    yeah, I think I'll stick with Whiskas Temptations. Ball loves those little suckers. I got 5 bags in my nightstand. He comes a runnin whenever he hears me rustling with the bags.

    We give greenies and they chew them, but the dogs on the other hand swallow their bone whole every night :Dizzy: I don't get it?

    It's Whiskas Temptations for Hibou...all the way. I buy all the flavour and dump them all into a coffee tin...then I get to shake the tin and she comes running!

    And speaking of come running...how is it that a cat that has always had wet cat food with a peel off metal lid...know the sound of a can opener??? SHe came bounding up the stairs when I opened a can of soup one day:Dizzy::Dizzy:

    I was giving Snuffie pounce but she quit eating them so no more of those. Now its Friskies Party Mix - she will sit right underneath the counter where I keep them and meow until she gets some. lol
