Reasons Why Cats Get Treats

We're at the part of the year when various holidays are upon us. I'm thrilled, because we're finally by family members. Since we're a military family, we're usually away from everyone. But this year, we can be with my parents and my Nana Jo.





The holidays can also be an overwhelming time for pets. Suddenly things are moving at a faster pace. Various decorations are brought in and pets are baffled when they are told they cannot play with them. Amazing food is cooked and the cats think they are getting some, and then are completely confused when they aren't served any.

I love my pets and I want to treat them to a happy holiday season.




Temptations® Treats has many delicious flavors to choose from, plus a fabulous Temptations® Snacky Mouse to play with. 




You can buy Temptations® treats and the Temptations® Snacky Mouse at Walmart in the canned cat food and treats aisle.




My two cats, Max, who is nearly 10 and Ruby, who is 1, love to get Temptations® treats. 






There are times when cats are able to get treats. I want them to know that they are special things to get, because they are, after all, special in our lives. Here are the reasons why cats can earn some treats.





1. When they sit. Seriously, my husband has them sit before they can get their treats. Both cats do this. Tom used to be a dog trainer in the Air Force and he feels all animals can be taught to do tricks.




2. When they are being lovable. It's always nice when they are kind to visitors. And to us, of course.


3. When they don't eat the decorations. Please don't nibble on the centerpiece!


4. When they don't scratch up the furniture so it can stay nice for friends and family who visit.




5. When they don't bite after we are finished brushing them so they look their best for holiday photos. Sometimes Ruby gets offended that we've stopped and will lash out.


6. When they get along because sometimes they can get moody and swipe at one another.




There are such delicious flavors of Temptations® treats so my cats try incredibly hard to behave so they can get some. Sure, sometimes there are naughty moments, but it happens to the best of us. Sometimes a delicious treat is what is needed to get them to cheer up. You can learn more by checking out HappyPetHappyHome.com.

  2. I need your husband to teach my dog some new tricks. He refuses to do any tricks I try to teach him. I think I'm too soft. I have a stocking for my pet that I hang alongside the rest of them during the Christmas season and I always head to Walmart to pack it full of treats and toys.

  3. I love that your cats are Max & Ruby! Such cute names. Our dog had a hard time figuring out new decorations for sure (he's got the gist now after many attempts to eat ornaments off of our tree). We need to find some new goodies for his stocking this year.

  25. Adorable!!! And great to remember for any pet! It's my puppy's first Christmas this year, and I definitely need to treat him extra special with all the hustle and bustle. I looooooove that your cats are called Max and Ruby, how cute! <3

  27. My three cats get treats as a reward for their patience and cooperation during the dreaded nail trimming sessions. Regular nail trimming is the humane alternative to de-clawing, and saves the furniture too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Aw, your kitty is so cute! I wish I had a pet but, unfortunately, our apartment complex doesn't allow for it. It's for the better because, at this time in our lives, we probably aren't going to be able to care for one the way they deserve!

    I hate when people get pets and don't take care of them and leave them neglected. It breaks my heart!

    ReplyDelete
  29. aw our cat is just the same shes part of the family so of course she needs treats too

    ReplyDelete

  34. Aww, you are such a doll! I don't have pets but I can't stress enough on the importance of giving pets a lot of TLC. You have a very cute little kitty, by the way :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your cats are so adorable! I try to give treats to my cat that also help with a help concern, either oral care or hairball control. I often have to give him treats to get him out when he's hiding under the couch, lol! He also gets them when we have a very good dinner and he gets excited about our food.

  38. Ahh, they are so cute! Do they ever run from you? Juniper is young and friendly but I find that the older she gets, sometimes she's skittish. Like when I'm wearing boots. So then I try to be gentle and give her a treat then she doesn't associate my dumb winter boots with fear!
