.. cat becomes addicted, bugs you all day for them, sometimes affects their appetite for real food. I thought it was great when my cat devoured these little treats. But, there is something in these treats that makes them behave as if they are drug addicted. My cat will really beg for them and ignore her food tray. Even for just one. She paces back and forth near where I keep them and cries for them constantly..
Yes, I have wondered what's in these too. I've tried many other kinds of treats, .. and while most were received with appreciation, Bob especially will leap up in the air to rip the Temptations bag out of my hand.
I just shake the bag and the cat comes running from across the street literally to get to the treats. They would meow and meow until I gave it to them. .. I also wonder what it is they put in these threats to make the cats go all crazy?
I have a cat that WAS really good about eating her cat food, dry or canned. Then I gave her some of these treats and now she won't eat ANYTHING else. She goes nuts anytime I go near the place where I keep them, like she is starving. I have several cats and there is always dry food available and canned food at night. She won't touch it. …It really is crack to her. Last week in the grocery store, I saw a guy buying several packs of them. I told him about my cats addiction and he said his had the same problem. He said his will lick a couple times at the canned food, then start crying for treats. Hmmmmm…? Laura Davis 9/25/15 at 12:03pm
My cat's world begins and ends with Whiska's Temptation treats. He eats his main meals and dinners fine but we enjoy being about to give him treats from time to time. Unfortunately after $100s of dollars over the years .. he won't touch anything but Temptations. .. The issue is our cat is allergic to (or reacting to) something in Temptations. Every time he has ever consumed them, he then spends the next few days liking his paws incessantly and even swelling/throwing up.
“Hi blosomthyme! My cat is insanely obsessed with this treat too! I was so happy to find a treat that she likes but she'd rather eat this instead of her regular food too. So glad that I'm not the only one having this “problem”.. I created a kitty-monster!” - leopardchick 9/15/12 at 5:45pm
My cat was healthy and normal until a friend suggested I try these treats for her. She loved them. Now about 6 months later I'm in tears because I'm very sure she has kidney problems. I find out the blood test results tomorrow but she shows all the symptoms of kidneys failing. She stopped drinking. She's peeing a lot. Not eating. She's lethargic. I wondered why she started drinking so much water over the past while...now I know. These "treats" dehydrate cats. Sure enough when I started googling the symptoms she has I came across this page I was absolutely horrified.
At seven months old and within three days little Munchkin suddenly went from being a typically active, healthy kitten to lethargic, respiratory problems, and death. What was different a couple days before this? Giving him and my other cats Whiskas Temptations Treats! Now I am watching the others very closely because digging a grave for a sweet little furbaby sucks beyond belief! There is *NO* excuse for the company to be remaining silent about this when each day is bringing more and more new reports of illnesses and deaths. Ken of Pensacola, FL on April 27, 2016
Tonight I was very alarmed when my 5 year old cat started vomiting. She was so sick that she continuously threw up for about an hour -- she had vomited up the entire contents of her stomach and yet was still dry heaving. I tried to recount what she had eaten in hopes of figuring out what had caused this. Everything that she had eaten was typical for her, except her cat treats. Today I had given her a new cat treat, Whiskas Temptations Beef Flavored treats. This was the first time she had eaten these treats and she got sick about an hour after eating them.

a couple of days ago I noticed there was a packet of Whiskas Temptations in the cupboard which a family member had purchased him for his Christmas. I checked to see if they were in date, which they were and proceeded to give him a few. He seemed to love them, nearly taking my hand off for them! The next day I noticed he was a bit lethargic compared with normal and he started to wrench as if he was going to be sick. This was highly unusual as Cooper had not been sick ever before! The next day however I gave him more Temptations as he seemed a wee bit better. HUGE MISTAKE! Within an hour (about 10pm) he threw up and this time there was a lot of sick! I couldn't quite understand what was causing it! He was sick again at 1am, 4am then multiple times between 6 and 7am. At this point he seemed to be very lethargic and was hardly able to walk. He fell over a couple of times as he was trying to get under the bed to hide. That's when I knew I had to get him to vets ASAP. On way to vets I actually thought we had lost him as he was unresponsive at one point! I was absolutely petrified! Lee of Lanark, Other on April 7, 2016
I think my cat may be an addict I was wondering, for all the cat lovers/owners out there, has anyone bought "Temptation" cat treats for their kitty and then noticed any addictive behavours? .. Also, as she will not stoop to the dog's level, there is just no way she begs for anything or in any way dents her dignity and superior position in the household… Well, let me tell you, I bought her a bag of these damn "Temptations" and she has turned into a complete junkie, yelling at the top of her lungs for them when a craving hits, throwing dignity out the window to come running from the other end of the house at the rattle of the Temptations bag.
I am thinking there may be something "special" added to these treats that has completely hooked my cat. Lord only knows what will happen if we ever run out! Anyone?
Our cats completely freak over the temptations. Some of them like other treats too but NONE of them refuse temptations. They go berserk! - Bacchus
Hmmmm, kinda makes ya wonder huh? - CHCMD

Mission Failed1 "crackhead kitty" Lol.... mine's also incredibly addicted to these and refuses to eat any other food... It's like crack for cats.
Despite the post being shared many times, the post was deleted. Probably because it wasn’t true. But, that didn’t stop many Facebook users from sharing their concerns with the Temptations page. After plenty of posts, the company finally addressed the cat lover’s fears and said while they were aware of the claims, they were entirely untrue.
As Consumer Affairs directly impacts a brand’s online reputation, and populates the most coveted digital real estate, it’s hard to ignore. Your brand must manage its listing as well as respond to customer reviews as part of your overall digital reputation management strategy. However, are the benefits associated with a paid Consumer Affairs package worth its steep price tag?

Where do I get these at? I got wildcats living about my place. I hate them too. I tried everything to get rid of them.
If i gave them bags upon bags of this stuff, maybe then they will know my pain?
And what I mean by pain is the constant mating howling and the incestuous fighting, the tearing up of the underneath of my place.
Yea I am going to get even with these asshole cats.

The people I live with feed them to their cats. The cats do go crazy for them! Literally taking fingers off for them. I'm going to let them know about this, first thing in the morning. I'd hate to see something bad happen to their cats.
