  • FINALLY a freeze dry treat my kitty eats

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I bought both flavors salmon and chicken a while back. I opened the salmon with no luck. My cats treat eaters just didnt want to touch it. I REALLY want my maine coon to eat freeze dried meat becasue i cant seriously deal with his voracious appetite. I cant even eat a candy without having him pawing at my legs begging for a taste! so i waited a few months. First try when was a fiasco he was a little sweet kitten... now he is a 12 pounds 7 months old kitten lol AND he loves these! Bingo! so of course i ordered more :) i like these treats becasue they dont disintegrate in your hand when you chop them!

  • My cats didn't like them--but my friends' cats did!

    By on

    I thought for sure my cats would like these, since they love salmon and both my cats and dogs have loved everything Merrick I've ever given them. But, alas, they were not fans at all. They sniffed a couple of them, but I don't think they ate even a single one. I gave their rejects to the dog...who ate them, but did it in such a way that made it clear that she was eating them because she's a good dog and is supposed to eat the treats that I hand to her. Sigh. Anyway, I was cat sitting for some friends, so I took these treats over to them...they LOVED them. I gave them a bunch, then zipped up the bag and put it on the counter to give them more the next day. Well, the next day I couldn't find I thought for sure my cats would like these, since they love salmon and both my cats and dogs have loved everything Merrick I've ever given them.

I gave them a bunch, then zipped up the bag and put it on the counter to give them more the next day. Well, the next day I couldn't find the bag. Another friend was looking in on the cats in the mornings and I was checking them in the evenings, but I couldn't believe she'd have fed them that many treats in the morning...and then I opened the fridge. There they were, in a plastic baggie. The original bag had been torn to pieces and at least half the treats were gone. They apparently loved them enough to figure out how to tear the tough plastic bag in order to gorge themselves. Some notes: they are not pieces of salmon, they're little salmon pellets. They don't stink (I have some dried salmon treats that smell like...well, dried salmon left out at room temperature). They hold together reasonably well--the package was not a bunch of crumbs. But....the bottom line is my cats wanted nothing to do with them, so I'm probably not buying them again. … more

    One of my cats is on a restricted, novel protein diet for his IBS. Most treats don't sit well with him, but these have no adverse effects and he LOVES them!

    2 of my cats really like these treats. My other isn't that crazy about these. I like that these are healthy snacks my kitties can enjoy.

  • Picky cats...

    By on

    Disclaimer: My chowhound cats rarely eat treats. I bought these thinking hoping that they would change their minds. I was wrong. The cats have zero interest in eating them. Fortunately, my dogs are happy to clean up the uneaten treats. Great ingredients! Just picky cats...

  • Great as an enticement

    By on

    I use these to entice my picky eaters to eat. They are easily crumbled to put on top of my cats' wet food.
