    Ha Ha....I was going to post this question this morning!

    Johnny will only eat that cheap "party mix" made by whiskas??? Neither of my cats eat treats and one day he got a sample party mix in his littler so we tried it and he LOVES them :ThumbsUp::ThumbsUp:

    I don't give them treats. I have a toddler who shares all his food so they get all sorts of things they shouldn't. Last night they were eating salad. :Dizzy:

        He rarely does get a snack, but when he does, it's a couple mac n cheese noodles, some tuna, or string cheese :)

        She also gets bits of my fried chicken when we have it. I just cant say no to that little begging face of hers. She has me wrapped.

        I thought I was the only one that found the 'party mix"! I guess not! I always laugh at the name when I give them to Johnny :Dizzy::Dizzy::Dizzy:

        We buy Temptations in every possible flavor and keep them in a big tin...shake shake shake and that gets her a running! (but not through drywall mind you, LOL)

        She also loves the NOW! Grain Free brand treats (Canadian Brand) they are the same brand of her dry food!

        Other "snacks" that qwerty likes:

        Triscuit crackers
        croutons
        chicken
        lamb
        ice cream
        salad
        milk
        cookies
        lunch meat


        Keep in mind, I don't willingly feed him any of those things (except for a little bit of plain chicken now and then). He steals them. He's a little damn thief.

          Oh I see! I was going to ask what Greenies were?! I thought it meant salad or bogeys or something! :LOL:

          Mo's favourite snacks are Weebox sticks. Not sure if you have them in the US or elsewhere? They are long meaty sticks for cats that you buy in packs of 6. Mo loves them, he flicks them around and plays with them first for about half an hour. He also likes the freeze dried chicken lumps, my other cat likes them too.

          Mo has a bit of yogurt that I'm eating if it's a probiotic one! I convince myself thats good for him! He likes crisps (potato chips??) too and likes flicking them about!

          Those are Mug's favorites too!! By the way Aldi do a similar product but you get 10 in a pack for 99p!! Mug's thinks they're just as tasty!

          He will also steal chow mein, chicken curry and pizza off your plate, beg for cookies, fudge and chocolate malt balls (he only gets the occasional nibble of one) and potato chips...especially cheetos when i get them sent over!!

            Besides their lysine treats they take food from our plates (although never our guests which is good) Then when my mom comes over they get every kind of treat possible, as soon as they see her they start screaming & running into the kitchen until she follows.

            I've given Snuffie beef jerky before. She loved it but I didn't know if it would make her sick so I didn't give her alot.

            There's a difference between what I give Pedda and what she takes. She thinks she's entitled to sample anything on my plate. Or anything I put in a bowl or in a glass. She adores any kind of crackers and just crunches them all up and makes a heckuva mess.

            But her favorite snack in the world that I give her are those nasty Pounce in the little jars. She goes bonkers over them. I've learned that she's a lot more amenable to being trained if I bribe her with Pounce.

            I caught Gable stealing a chicken strip off the stove the other day! He NEVER bothers for people food and we could leave anything out (except butter and cheese). I have to admit I was kind of proud to find him doing normal cat stuff and stealing food from the counter. It was funny to watch. He acted like it was prey and he was taking off with his kill!

                my kitties eat the pounce snacks in the cylinder style con trainer. the soft ones.

                my mom's vet recommend them for her cat who had liver failure. saying they were somewhat healthy for him to eat. so that's why i feed them. kitties love them!
