Cat treats: yes or no?
Many cat owners are uncertain whether they are harming their cat by feeding it cat treats. When the term "treat" comes up, many people quickly have the image of an extremely unhealthy snack that should actually be avoided in their minds. However, this is only true if you choose the wrong products. Similar to humans, the range is wide from chocolate bars to fruit meals, and if you do it right, there's even quite a bit that speaks in favor of tasty treats in between meals. To help you choose the best cat treats, we would like to answer some recurring questions.
What role do cat treats play in cat nutrition?
Cat treats are not an important cornerstone of a healthy cat diet, as a healthy and balanced diet works without treats.
Just as we humans reward ourselves with a tasty snack every now and then, even though it may not be essential for a healthy diet, many cat owners like to please their pets with a tasty snack every now and then. This form of reward is fun and can lead to a better bond between humans and cats. With the right selection of treats, it is perfectly safe for most cats to be rewarded with treats now and then.
In which situations are cat treats useful?
There are situations in which it can be helpful to reach for a cat snack. For example, when we want to reward our cat or calm or distract it for a moment. This can be the case when the cat is anxious or nervous, for example, before a visit to the vet, during a car ride etc. Then it is helpful to have access to a snack that the cat loves and that helps it to block out its environment for a moment.
Also a cat that tends to be underweight and often does not finish its bowl can be encouraged to eat by a suitable snack, such as the Foodbooster.
Do cat treats make cats fat?
Cat treats are to be understood as supplementary food and should be fed appropriately. Approximately 90% of the food intake should be provided by complete food, whether wet or dry food. Cat treats should only make up about 10% of the total food. If you stick to this rule of thumb and use only high quality cat treats, like those by PORTA21, you don't have to worry about your cat gaining too much weight.
What types of cat treats are available?
In our store you can find a wide range of different cat treats. Kitty Beat is made of 100% freeze-dried chicken, duck meat or fish and is available in different package sizes.
Kittys Cream is a paste in a stand-up pouch that is also extremely popular frozen as cat ice cream.
Kittys Farm Cat Caviar are sliced tuna flakes for real gourmets.
Our Foodbooster are crumbs of chicken meat that can be sprinkled over "regular" cat food to turn any food into a new taste experience.
What distinguishes cat treats from PORTA21?
We are particularly concerned to ensure that you can feed all our treats with a clear conscience. That's why we only use high-quality ingredients and consistently avoid artificial preservatives, colors and flavors. This makes cat treats from PORTA21 a healthy snack that cats love.
