  • Either its texture or fowl making this a no-go

    By on

    Our Siberian Forest Cat just isn't interested in these - as incentive, in moments of spontaneity or even seemingly left in her path. She sniffs, has taken small bite of one morsel and probably will approach as a toy to bat about rather than a cat treat. We were excited about these treats, alas that excitement was not feline-infectious.

  • They won't touch it

    By on

    Was really looking forward to trying this, but my 2 grown (13 yo) cats won't touch it. And one of them is not picky with food. It looks really dry, stale... no sure if it was the product that i received or if it's usually like this.. won't be buying this again

  • Healthful and delicious

    By on

    These cat treats are among the best I have seen with respect to having really clean, healthful ingredients. They are also recommended by Anthony William, the Medical Medium. My cats love them, would eat them every day if I'd give them that often. They beg for more.

  • Great for training

    My cats love these. We use them for training. They are starting to turn their nose up at my homemade treats now that they are used to these!

  • Delicious! (for cats)

    Great snack for the kitties! All of my cats gallop into my room when they hear the drawer open where I keep these snacks. They are a hit!

  • Product unfortunately was stale

    By on

    I've bought this product before but from my local pet store. My bengals love them crumbled over their food or just as treats. My male bengal can only have duck so I am thrilled that he likes them. However, although the date on the package was far from expiration date, as soon as I opened it I could smell that they were very stale. I'm very cautious about what I feed my babies so I didn't think it was a good idea to let them eat these. Going to have to try again maybe reordering them from chewy.

  • My cats LOVE these

    By on

    I've never seen my two cats inhale a treat so fast! It is rare that I find a treat that they both like, let alone love.

  • Not a good pick

    I should have never bought this for my cats but I wanted to feed them a new treat that's healthy but no

  • My cats would not eat this product.

    By on

    I rated this product very low using the above scale or net promoter score, but the problem may be specifically with my cats. They absolutely would not eat these treats under any circumstances. I donated the bag to a local shelter. I won't buy this product, or any "freeze-dried" product from this vendor again. I must say, however, that the individual treat pieces came apart when rolled between my fingers as though they were stale. Don't know if that is their normal state or not.

  • Kitty Treats!

    By on

    These are included in their regualr food, the Raw Boost Duck & Turkey. They pick out these morsels first..so, when I saw them for sale, in a separate bag, I knew they'd be devoured!
