Ice cream isn't good for cats, because its sugar and milk or cream content can cause digestive problems and diarrhea. But a cat alternative is available. Cool Claws, developed by animal nutritionists, is formulated specifically for the feline digestive system. Cool Claws resembles vanilla ice cream and is packaged in small cups to be served frozen or at room temperature. With its cat-friendly ingredients that are of people-food quality -- including water, dried whey, egg, chicken fat and vitamins -- it's got a taste most cats take to it instantly. The product's Web site indicates that Cool Claws is safe for human consumption -- its creamy consistency tastes like very bland vanilla ice cream. But while cat owners can share, it's nicer to serve it exclusively to Kitty (who can't run out for a cone of her own!) Each eight-serving package costs around $3.00.
