Temptations Mix Ups: My Cats’ New Favourite Treats

My cats are a little (ok more than a little) spoiled, usually they get Pure Snacks freeze dried chicken as a treat but every so often we give in and let them have some junk food.  The problem is that with the exception of freeze dried chicken, they don’t like the same treats so I sit there with 3 different bags as they headbutt my legs wondering why it is taking me so long to dish out their treat because[Read more]
