Anyways, I recently adopted one, a cat, after not having one for several years. My cat will not get people food - ever. I did buy him some treats though - good for his teeth. And imagine my surprise (delight even) at this label instruction:
As with any treat, always adjust amount of main meal to compensate for calories delivered by treats.In addition, the label tells you how many calories per treat, and how many treats a day your cat should have based on his or her weight. But the instruction to compensate is priceless and relevant: you can't just keep adding calories - even good ones - and not expect to gain weight.
If its important for a cat, isn't it important for you? Sure - have a glass of wine, but those 150 to 200 calories COUNT towards your daily total, they are not supposed to be 'add ons' - you must compensate... pretend you're a cat.
I am referencing Feline Greenies, BTW, and my cat likes them - in moderation!
