I noticed that in the 'instructions' is says no more than 15 per day.

Anyone know why, I will email whiskas but just wanted to check if anyone knew or what would happen if the cats eats more than 15 i9n a day.

...........Probably because it's not balanced food and they don't want
you to use it instead of regular cat food.

Oh, I never read about 15 per day. Nipsy is certainly near that limit.

...........Actually Temptations is made by Mars and are completely
balanced. All the other crunchy treats I looked at (Whiskas Lickin's,
Party Mix) were NOT balanced and have that warning on them.

I actually looked at the Temptations box (yes, I buy them buy the
pound!) and it does have a warning about using them as a primary meal
source but I don't recall what you're supposed to add. I'll check when
I get home. I did not see anything about limitiing them to 15 a day.

No her biscuit saucer is potery/ceramic so is her water bowl and et food bowl.

She does prefer warm water to drink.

I checked the temptations packet and Yes it says up to 15 busicuits per day.
It's at the end of the first line.

Yes, I read the labels of two packs of yellow (chicken) Temptations
carefully, the 6 oz and 1lb sizes. One said to feed 10-12 as a treat
for a normal sized cat, the other said up to 15. But both said that it
was a balanced food and that 1/4 cup of Temptations is equivlent to
1/4 cup of some other dry cat food. That would be a pretty expensive
way to feed your cat, and then what would you give them as a treat?

I prefer to give them wet food, but they get dry as well since I can
leave that out all day.

My one female cat 7 years old :
For breakfast 1/2 sachet of wet cat food usually felix, refreshed bowl of warm water, she'll usually then sit next to her buiscuit saucer I'll put about half a handful of purin/iams type buiscuits and she'll wait and look up at me until I add a side order of about 5 treats or so.
She'll eat the treats, then eat about half the wet food then half the purin/iams then go and have a wash and a sleep.
Same thing for evening meal about 6pm, and then the same again at abput midnight although thy'll be purin/iams and a bit of wet cat food left in the bowl.

No return email from whiskas yet.
