Spooky season is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing – it’s your kitty’s time to shine. Unlike dogs, who are the certified goofballs and goodie two shoes of the pet world, cats have that mysterious and mischievous allure that makes them bonafide Halloween royalty. Heck, black kitties are one of the most common symbols of this season!

If you are a fan of Halloween, you’re probably looking for ways to include your precious pet in all of the festivities – and let’s face it, not all kitties are big on wearing costumes. Not to worry – there’s a feline-approved way to ensure your four-legged bestie is enjoying the holidays. Trick or treating! As your pet is probably playing countless tricks on you every day, you can safely skip that part and go straight for the treats. And what better way to treat your cat than with tried-and-true delicacies that kitties adore?

Temptations treats for cats have been around for decades and are a feline favorite – cats love these irresistible bites. The secret of their appeal is that there are so many different flavors to choose from and different types and textures to suit any finicky feline’s preference! 

Temptations™ Classic are soft and crunchy treats that make a great bite-sized reward for your cat – they are also nutritionally complete and balanced for adult maintenance, have no artificial flavors, and have less than 2 calories per treat. This means that in addition to being insanely yummy. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, which will make your kitty go bananas for these treats! Some classic favorite flavors include chicken and tuna, but if you’re looking for more potent flavors for your picky pet, consider something like backyard cookout – a chicken, liver and beef flavor mix, catnip fever – a chicken, catnip and cheddar flavor mix, or surfers’ delight – with a mix of tuna, shrimp and salmon flavors. And if you really want to stick to the Halloween theme, no worries – there’s a spooky flavor called “ Tasty Human” to serve to your kitty for the holiday! And no, no humans were harmed in the making of these crunchy yummies – it’s actually a mix of chicken, beef, and liver flavors that’s available only for a limited time. 

Of course, while most cats adore the soft and crunchy treats, some prefer wet foods all the way – either because of a preference or because of necessity (e.g. seniors or cats with dental health challenges). Temptations™ Creamy Purrrr-ée offers a line of creamy, soft treats for cats of all ages! Packed with flavor, these lickable squeeze treats can be doled out as a treat, either by hand or squeezed in a bowl to be enjoyed, or even used as a meal topper for those picky cats who need a bit of motivation to dine on their kibble. Once again, there’s a fine range of flavors to match your lil’ tiger's tastes, with chicken flavor, with salmon flavor, or with tuna flavor

Last but not least, Temptations™ Meaty Bites make a purrrfect option for a Halloween snack – they are made with real meat and cater to your kitty’s carnivore needs. Soft and savory, these contain no artificial flavors or colors! An optimal choice for the lean, mean meowing machine you share your home with – treats that your pet will actually love. Flavors remain true to feline preferences, with chicken flavor, with salmon flavor, or with tuna flavor – three flavors your kitty is sure to love.
