One way to save money is to spend less on cat treats. Some pet owners spend a LOT of money on treats. (But then, we are good cat, cats and deserve lots of treats.)
Here are a few tips on how you can minimize what you spend on treats while stilling have the pleasure of giving treats:
1. Feed less treats. You don't have to stop feeding them but consider feeding less. Treats are fun to give but there is nothing in them that your cat needs. Cat treats are similar to a candy bar or snack for us. We might like it but we don't need it.
2. Smaller treats. Instead of feeding less frequent treats - break them up in smaller pieces and feed smaller treats. (Try this with my Temptations and I break YOU into smaller pieces.)
3. Make your own treats. One way to cut costs and have fun is to make your own treats. I'll even share some great cat treat recipes with you. These are easy to make and all natural so you know exactly what is in them.
