Hi – thanks for your email. You can give kittens treats. Kittens don’t need treats but you can certainly give treats to a kitten or cats.

Treats can be commercial treats that you buy or some that you make. There are multiple companies that make treats – most of them are fine. I generally select treats based on what flavors the cat likes most e.g. fish or chicken. Just make sure you feed them in moderation and make sure your kitten is eating a high quality pet food as her core diet.

Here is one recipe you can try:
