No Lack of Treats Around this Place

I'm sitting here thinking about how spoiled all of these animals are around this place!  At one point or another today, everyone had a treat.  Here's how it went:

Bunnies - fresh carrot tops from the garden
Horses - apples from my neighbor's tree
Goats - butternut squash vine from the garden (I trimmed it back a little, hoping it will get some new life for the fall)
Chickens - peaches from my neighbor's tree (the bruised ones that had fallen on the ground)
Tortoises - fresh herbs and petunia flowers from the garden
Snuffy - Frosty Paws frozen treat (from the grocery store!)

The only one who didn't get a treat was Cactus Rose.  She is a picky little kitty and I haven't found any treats that she likes. 

I've been so busy catering to everyone else, I think I'll give MYSELF a treat.


One of my favorite treats in the summertime are Fruit Chillers.  They are a frozen fruit sorbet in a tube.  They remind me of Otter Pops, only better.  Cold and yummy and only 55 calories.  Heck, I might even have 2...

Nommy!!! Dogs love doggie ice cream! I think they make a cat version too.

Have you tried the pitr patter treats for Cactus Rose? Bella loves them.

Sounds like you needed a treat after handing them out to all the critters.

I am BIG on treats. I have a hard time going through a whole day without a treat. *sigh* Maybe I should move closer to your place. *grin*

My cats go insane for Greenies, which I find at my local pet supply store. They come in a pouch, various flavors - mine live for the beef variety. Every morning, as soon as I get up, I go into the kitchen, to find both cats up on the counters, howling for Greenies, and the only thing that will shut them up is a small handful. This has improved the overall vibe in the household greatly - not that they didn't get along before, but now they're united in "howling for Greenies," as I call it, and I think they've bonded over it.

Give it a shot - I think you'll be pleased, as will Cactus Rosie.

My cat is pretty much in love with anything food related, but goes insane for Beaphar Catnip Bits. I just did a google search and you should be able to get them in America. The packacing looks like THIS

Our pitbull, Doom, loves Frosty Paws. Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when I tell them about this "ice cream" for dogs!
