I received a sample of some cat food in the mail, Purina Naturals Plus Vitamins and Minerals. Our cat goes crazy for them! Instead of changing her diet, we decided to use this kind as her treats. We figured out the cost, and can buy a 6lb bag for a little over $7, compared to $72 for 6 lbs of cat treats.
We use this food to play with our cat, too. Throw a piece on the floor, and she'll run after it to eat it. Not on carpeting, of course. We'll use about 1/8 cup for her treats, so she gets exercise and her treats all in one!
What I like to do is mix treat and food samples in with the cat's large bag of food. that way she can enjoy it without changing her diet. Plus if she hates it she doesn't know she's eating it so the sample doesn't go to waste.
