Save Money, Give me treats!

It seem like everyone these days is looking to save money in one way or another. Dr. Jon and the staff wrote an article giving tips to save money on pet care during this recession.

If you haven't read it - go to 9 Tips to Save Money on Pet Care. It has some good tips.

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.

Remember that I will be happy to taste any treats you make before you give them to your own cat! I take my taste testing service very seriously, so you know I will give you good recommendation if you make your treats right!

Since Harley and I are on a raw diet now, the prepared frozen medallions are a little expensive. My Mommeh has been thinking about making our own raw food, but so far, she is too nervous to take the plunge.

Dooood..really! Break my Temptations up and something will meet a toothy death!!!

All those treat recipes sound good!

When we had our doggie, Stitch, for a while I was making him homemade treats. A whole wheat/sun dried tomato bone, and a cheesy, twisty bread stick. He loved them!

I don't get treats on a regular basis. My treats consist of shared cold meat and cheese with SS on the weekend, and that is fine by me.
