Healthy treats can be a good way to supplement your cat's diet, it provides additional nutrition and vitamins that cats may not get from their regular food. However, there are cat treats that has high levels of carbohydrates, grains and high fat, which tend to do poorly on a cat's diet.

Be sure to check the label for the list of ingredients, number of calories, and fat. Another good thing to look for is the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) certification. The AAFCO publishes a set of guidelines for cat food and treats, and if the ingredient definition meet the regulation, the sign "Formulated to meet the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profile for Kittens/Adults/Senior," will be printed on the label of the treat package.

Remember, in addition to have a flavor that will appeal to your cat, it is important that you find cat treats that are nutritionally balanced.
