How often should you treat your cat?

Treats are a great way of rewarding your pet

Giving your cat treats is a wonderful way to build trust between you both - and it’s a great excuse to show them a little extra love and affection! It’s important not to overdo it though, as otherwise they’ll end up taking the treats for granted, and too many can upset their regular diet.

As relatively small animals they don’t need a lot, so look for other ways of developing that bond, and only give very small treats every so often.

If you do want to treat them, lean meat or specially designed treats for cats are a good option - just remember to remove the same amount of food from their food bowl to ensure they’re not overeating.
