The key to the Temptations treats is 2 or 3 at a time maybe twice a day . Some cat owners go overboard because their cats like them so much. Not good. Moderation , always moderation.

Our cat whose terribly spoilt but so lovely we can't help it gets a variety of treats which we put in her biscuits.

Thanks for the tip off though. Does anyone remember when Whiskers cat tins were all the rage and cats seemed to prefer it over all the other makes? I suspect this has been going on for a long time and we just didn't know - I wonder whether the other cat food manufacturers (if they aren't owned by the same group at the top of the chain) will resort to the same tactics?

Your source is a pay-for ratings site. Snopes also has listed this as a hoax.

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?

Snopes lists the renal failure claims as a hoax. Which is fine, and it should be disseminated if there is no proof of renal failure. However, the cat-addiction problem I and others Im sure can attest to. I don't have cats anymore, but when I did I trained them with those treats. Bizarre how easy it was.

Since then I've developed into a dog owner, and I feed my pup raw foods. There's a huge push against raw, because it's taking away from the dry dog food industry, which is just pumping left over crap into hard-undigestable nuggets that dehydrate your animal.

There are raw diets for both feline and canine by the way. But my pup will start spinning around in circles, jumping up and down when she gets her raw food. Dry food she barely pays mind to it, eats when she absolutely has to.

It's amazing the difference you see in them with raw food. You can even formulate your own diet if you are really concerned. Mine uses a regular brand, but I make her a special treat with sirloin steak every now and then.

When our vet tried to warn against it, claiming it's "junk food cause they just put pure meat in those formulations."

I laughed, since our pup gets just as excited for lettuce, carrots, and peppers. She loves anything raw, anything fresh. When she gets fresh steak, ho-ly-cow. Temptations has nothing on real steak.

In my opinion , I believe that the treats just taste so good to them. My 2 cat's treats are a piece of thin cut deli meat / day.

I thought my cats were just being gluttonous slobs. Its literally any time anyone in my house walk into the kitchen, both cats are meowing and trying to leg climb to get these treats.
I honestly thought they just were becoming used to getting treats all the time and thought it was now routine.
This is crazy

There could be some weight to this story, Ive been addicted to them for about a year now..

All jokes aside, my cats will always opt for these over cat food, when I've put both out. I've only been giving them as a treat and had no problems so far.

I give these to my cats and they do come running when I shake that little bag but they don't act crazy. We call it kitty crack though which is kind of funny. You're only supposed to give them about ten pieces a day. It's like candy.

We use them because they are the only treats we have found that says it can be safely used as a meal replacement, so we dont have to worry about giving them too much. When we run out, we dont have any of these insane problems people are talking about.

I dunno, I've had many cats, and given out many brands of treats (including Temptations) and NONE ever had any "addiction" reaction to treats. Our late big fluffy black geezer kitty had a serious candy bar problem (he ate 3 Snickers bars after getting into a purse -- and LIVED! No adverse issues at ALL) But addicted to a specific brand of treats? Never experienced that personally with mine.

I used to have a Boston Terrier that would beg, whine & salivate all over the floor if we had pig ears, though. An otherwise very well-behaved dog (came pre-trained via obedience school even) but them damn pig ears was his self-control undoing.

Kitty cats go nuts for these things.
