These treats (all 16 oz. of them!) come in a variety of flavors. Knowing my kitties, I chose the chicken.
In case you've forgotten from previous mentions on this blog, Evan is most likely to go wild over treats, along with housemate Toby. Thimble, though, barely ever touches a treat, and Eddy somehow manages to care about them even less than that. So, though I highly doubted these treats would be gobbled down by every feline here, I hoped for the best.
So, on to the treat test. The first ray of hope was the fact that I hadn't even opened the bin of Temptations® treats before the swarms started coming.
And that was before I had even popped the lid open.
The kitties nearly turned it into a free-for-all after that.
So, they sure liked the smell of them. But, what about the taste?
As you can see, Evan couldn't scarf down the Temptations® treats fast enough.
Toby was a fan as well.
And as for Thimble, she actually licked one of them a few times. She didn't eat it or any of the following ones I offered, but getting her to merely lick a treat is a feat in itself.
Of course, Eddy didn't even give the treats so much as a glance. Although, for what it's worth, on Eddy's behalf, pup Astrid says they taste great.
In my house of food snobs, these treats didn't do too bad for themselves. If you ask Evan and Toby, these Temptations® treats get an A+.
Mmmmm. And I can feel good knowing that Temptations® boast less than 2 calories per treat. Eat up, boys!

Now, on to the art of the day. Housemate Toby wanted to be included in our Thanksgiving week art, and so he gets to star in today's. As a bit of a preface, Toby is a very touchy-feely kind of cat, if I may say so. When he likes something, he touches it, a lot. If he likes how one of his favorite humans smells, for example, or how his beloved pup Astrid smells, he gets all sorts of grabby and handsy. That's why this little doodle happened:
Happy Tuesday! We hope all of our US furiends are gearing up for a fun and safe Thanksgiving, and that our non-US furiends are having a wonderful week!
Our Tip of the Day:Always remember that special treats are only meant to serve as a small portion of your furbaby's daily diet. Although sometimes we might forget or lose track, treats indeed add to a cat or dog's daily caloric intake, which means overdoing it can result in obesity, or set a weight loss patient back. Always be aware of who in the house, including visitors, has access to the treats and might be administering them, as monitoring food intake goes all the way down to those little treats just as much as those bowls of food. It is recommended that treats never make up more than 10% of your pet's diet, so do be sure to monitor those snacks!
