    unexpected surprise

    By Amelia on May 10, 2021

    I’ve bought these treats on multiple occasion, and I’ve never been able to keep them in the house. These freeze dried minnows are so popular with my pets that the moment the cats figure out how to get to the bag, they’ve ripped it up and ,between them and the dogs, eaten everything. This last time I had them in a drawer, and I left the draw open by half an inch... just discovered the destruction. If your cats love them as much as mine, do yourself a solid and find a good hiding spot. Time for me to order another bag.

    My cats LOVE these!

    By TinkaCat on May 11, 2021

    My two Maine Coons love these minnows. They jump and grab them out of my hands! They also don't have any additives, so I think it's very healthy for them. The aroma is quite strong, whenever I open the bag the cats dart over to me. Chewy, your customer support was impeccable. My mom called to let Chewy know that one of the bags of minnows was crushed. They sent me two new bags, and they arrived the next day

    Cats won’t eat

    By KayP on May 9, 2021

    Not one of my 3 cats will touch this. Even my rescue, who will typically eat anything, spat it out. Only bought this because my usual brand was out. Never again.

    A Very Good Buy - My Ash Loves Them

    By JayLay on Feb 6, 2021

    Yeah, these are crumbly sometimes and there's a fair bit of bitty fish dust, but I find uses for all of it, and my little softy-cat loves them. They are a single ingredient, quality treat providing great nutrition and avoiding all those highly questionable ingredients. I sprinkle the dust over flavors of her food that she likes less than others. She won't eat a pate, but stops eating the flavors and texture she likes if she gets them too often, so minnow dust sprinkled over now and then solves that problem. The bits, of most any size, are consumed eagerly by my somewhat picky kitty, and the price is so much better than other brands, I'll happily put up with some very usable crumbles & dust.

    Whoah! better than catnip

    By HarrysPetHuman on Apr 2, 2021

    I bought these as a treat for one of my cats. Holy cow did he love these! He's kind of a water loving cat so maybe it makes sense that he loves little fishies. He felt like a wild predator for a minute. Definitely recommend trying.

    good product, but my 2 cats do not like them

    By thepickychi on Feb 14, 2021

    My two cats will not touch these. They will only eat the chicken breast. It is a good quality product. I am not going to give it less than 5 stars just because my cats are picky and spoiled. That has nothing to do with the product. So five stars!! My dog loves them, she is a 3lbs chi. Not a toy, but a runt, and only eats the bare min. I waste many on dog food all the time. Thanks to this product I will try a freeze dried dog food.

    Zoey is a unhappy Kitty

    By AzRoadrunner on Feb 8, 2021

    I purchased this brand as an alternative to the brand we usually get. These minnows are so tiny and brittle that it’s hard to tell what they actually are. Other brands have minnows that are a nice size and are not brittle even though dehydrated. Anyway, my pets will not eat this brand. My cat choked on them so I will not be giving her any more. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because it might be good turtle food.

    My cats went crazy for them

    By Katie on Apr 8, 2021

    My 2 cats absolutely went nuts for these! Even the dog got a few. There was a bit of crumbs at the bottom and I just sprinkled them on top of their wet food. Super happy cats

    No whole fish - all crushed pieces and bits

    By Kruzer on Jan 8, 2021

    Tiny bits and crushed, to rough powder consistency. Possibly because package was in the bottom of the box with a 30 lb bag of dog food & a 20 lb container of cat litter on top of this tiny bag! Tried pouring some of the “powdered” minnow pieces into a dish for the cat &/or dog. Neither would eat it. There was only about 6 mostly whole minnows in the package. Lots of eyes without bodies ! The cats always love the whole dried minnows that I was buying (different brand) from Chewy - they were never crushed or pieces.

    These things stink but in a good way!!!

    By Tammi on Jan 21, 2021

    These things stink and they definitely look like freeze dried minnows. My kitten loves them!!!!! The little stinker actually climbed up on the fridge when I was gone overnight, stole the package off the top and chewed a hole in the bag and ate them all. I was home the second time he tried it with the new bag. Now they are in a plastic container. My other cat won’t touch them but the kitten gobbles them up. These and the little shrimp ones. If your cat loves fish they would more thank likely love these.
