Dogs like catfood because it is sweeter and richer.

If you want to give your cats a real treat, cook up a few chicken livers in the nuke. Put a litle water in, and be sure to pierce the livers with a fork few times, and cover, as they will pop all over the place. Give them only a few minutes...they should still be a little pink inside. They don't need any salt and pepper.
Mush the livers up with a fork, and give the cats just a little, and some time to check it out. Once they take a bite, they will love it!
I sometimes eat tuna for lunch. When I do, I always save a bit of the tuna and juice in the can, and let the cats lick it out.
Most of the time, though, I feed them a good dried food. They have delicate tummy's, and must be pampered.

Are you kidding me? This is too much!

I guess if you have the time and money to spoil the critters that much, se la vi. I spoil my cats, but this is far beyond that!

You can bake biscuits for a dog, but cats seem to just love any leftover roast chicken or meat of any kind. They're not really impressed by your efforts at baking them treats! Meat....that's the ticket.

one of the best cat treats i've found is shaved dried bonito. don't buy the tiny bags at a pet store tho, way too expensive. go to an asian market and you get 10 times the amount for the same price. and you can use them for your own cooking too. just immerse, soak, then strain the bonito in water just off the boil to make a fish broth. add konbu (kelp), and you've made a japanese soup called dashi.
