Madame Domino appears whenever I take a chicken out of the fridge and DEMANDS her bites from the breast. No other part of the chicken will do but I swear if I didn't give her a few bites she would drag the whole darned bird off the counter! She also loves Tuna water with a few bites of tuna in it and gets about 2T of half & half in a wee bowl and nuked for just 4 seconds every day.

Nah...she's not spoiled! Just well loved!

My cat used to love chicken too - he is just too old to care about anything right now - lucky he can still make it to the bowl of food. When younger, his treat used to be ice cream.

There used to be a bakery around the corner from my house. It was not your normal bakery though. Their clients were dogs and cats. Most of the stuff was for the dogs, but they did have a few baked goods for our feline friends.

My cats love tuna and that is really the only treat we give them. And we don't even give them the fish. We just let them lick the juice out of the can. My wife is the only one who makes tuna though so as soon as they see her (not me) with the can opener then they are right there being her best friend

I got this off the net.
Tuna Cat Treats

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
1/2 can tuna
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or cod liver oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; grease cookie sheets with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mash the tuna into smaller pieces. Add flour and milk. Mix well. Pour in water and oil. Mix well again.
Beat egg in separate dish until dish until egg is foamy texture. Add to mix. Mix well. The dough mix will be sticky. Using your fingers, shape dough into small bite-size balls, about the size of a marble. Put balls on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten with hand. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove treats from oven. Wait five minutes, then turn treats over. Bake 10 more minutes or until golden brown in color. Place treats on cookie rack to cool. Cool for 15 minutes. NEVER give hot treats to your pet.
Store in airtight container and store in refrigerator or cool dry place.

Just a word of caution as my husband used to do this with his cat as a child ... His cat actually cut his tongue on the edge of the can to the point(about 2/3 off actually) he couldn't feed himself any longer and had to be put to sleep .

Our little Reggie loves the tuna / juice treat but only gets it out of her bowl.

Oh, how awful!
I use an electric can opener that doesn't leave any sharp edges on the can. I even save leftover tuna cans for extra ashtrays when we have a party or cookout.

if you want to let your cat lick the juices from a can, just buy one of those safety edge can openers, the ones that slice thru the side, not the top, so there's no sharp or jagged edges.
and never leave butter out on the counter, or you'll have a patterned divot licked into the center..
