    We are planning on giving them a loaf of bread, a can of peas, and handful of rolled oats. Our cats will be getting wet cat food. [​IMG]

    I know this is going to sound so simple that it may not qualify as a Christmas treat, but we give our guys fresh air popped popcorn. No butter or salt. They love it.

    I tried popcorn with my chickens and they looked at me like I was crazy; they didn't eat any of it. Maybe I should have put melted butter on it?

    Maybe some leftover ham, fresh kale and pomegranate seeds. I'll probably also scramble some eggs for them---that's their favorite---with nonfat plain yogurt on top.
