Play Hide-the-Treats

Is an over-hungry cat driving you nuts begging for food? You can play “hide and seek” with freeze-dried treats hidden around the house – or put inside a treat-dispensing toy to help settle down your kitty’s cravings!

Kylie listens to my radio shows and wrote me about her kitty. “My cat is hungry all the time, eating dry food and constantly demanding more — at least 3 times a day, and especially at the crack of dawn when the cat meows me awake.”

Kylie took my advice and switched her cat to a low-carbohydrate, canned food diet, with meals offered twice daily — she reported that the cat’s urgent hunger pangs did subside after getting a can at each meal. “She is better now actually, fingers crossed,” Kylie wrote. “I read about ‘kitty crack’ on your blog and listened to CAT CHAT® and it helped a lot. My girl is on grain-free canned food, feeding 6 ounces a day, she is down to 9.5 lbs. But I’m still trying to break her of the habit of getting fed 3 times a day.”

Kylie liked my suggestion of hiding some freeze-dried protein treats (like Halo Liv-a-Littles) around the house for her kitty to hunt for and find. The activity kept her busy, filled her up and let Kylie sleep a bit longer in the mornings!
