IMO, some treats (even vitamins and other pet products) are for both dogs and cats. Some are just for dogs or just for cats. The instruction is labeled on the bag. Generally if it is labeled for dogs and cats, then it is supposed to be safe for your cat. But for a kitten ? I'd rather be more cautious giving a kitten treats. I'll only give kittens quality treats, digestible for them.

BTW, I checked your link - didn't find anything related to cats. Better safe than sorry !

I see nothing on your post (or on the linked site) that says anything about this being even remotely good for cats. If it's labeled for dogs, then you should NOT give it to your cat, especially a kitten, who's tummy probably can't handle it. Better to be safe then sorry, and stick to kitty treats

Please don't give your cat food made for dogs. treats or food.

Food/treats for dogs are made for dogs. dogs and cats have very different digestive systems and nutritional needs.

Never are they interchangable, regardless of what the manufacturer may say. throw them away..

Cupido is scrumptious. What lovely markings. I agree with everyone that dog foods and treats shouldn't be given to a cat or kitten. The food composition is totaly different and I would be especially afraid of feeding it to a kitten.

My goodness ! I can't bear to think your handsome Cupido threw up !
Good that you finally decided to throw away the treats.
Of course the manufacturer will said it's fine ... as long as it sells and it's all about profit !
