My last Cheey order was mostly toys and treats for my dog and cats for Christmas. So I decided to leave the box in the corner until I put up our tree. Our 3 kittens that are about 9ish months old chewed a hole through the box to get to these treats. They ripped the treat bags open to get to the freeze-dried minnows. My cats love these so much the chewed through a cardboard box and the plastic bag to get to them. Chewy boxes are no longer trusted to be left out.
Do not recommend!

I gave these to my cats at night time for a bedtime treat and they loved them! I would only give them one each so the bag would last longer. I had probably been giving them to them for a couple months and then one of my cats got one caught in its throat. I don't know if she didn't get it chewed up well enough or if she took too big a bite and tried to swallow it or what but I would never feed these again only for that reason.
These were a hit and a miss

I have two cats, one is a picky eater and the other who isn't. My one cat who is a picky eater, isn't interested in these. I guess they don't smell enough for them to be enticing to her. My other cat on the other hand loves them. At first sniff he wasn't sure whether or not to eat them but as soon as he had one in his mouth he gobbled it up and wanted more. These treats aren't too big or small, they're crunchy, and easy for cats to eat. If you have picky eater then don't get these, but if your cat likes to eat then give these a try.

I love these treats for my 1 year old baby due to how natural it is! There are no added ingredients, just minnow.
Not only do I love them, but he loves them even more! My cat is very peculiar about his treats and shakes his head at any hard treats (like the ones made by Temptation) but these, he sits at my feet waiting for the next one after he finishes the first one. Although it is a bit on the pricey end, it’s totally worth it.
Old guy loved them

19 year old guy who’d lost his two sisters in the last year-sigh. He’d had tummy troubles and was very picky. Started using chewable probiotics which helped but crumbling these minnows in his wet food really picked up his appetite-and with no resulting vomiting. I’m not sure how long he’ll be with us at 19, but he’s one happy guy now. We’re thrilled!
Outdoor kitties loved them

I bought these for my indoor cats. Unfortunately all 3 turned their nose up and wouldn't touch them. So, there are a few strays I feed outside, I decided to try with them. Well, they were a hit. They loved them! Think I'll keep buying them for the out door kitties. After all, they deserve treats too. :)
OMG!!! These are amazing!!!

I purchased this bag just for the heck of it because my one cat is allergic to chicken and a few other things. This way, I know her treats would be pure fish. I didn't know both of my cats would go absolutely INSANE over them! So much so that the bag had to gone into the freezer to prevent them from getting into it on their own. The only deterrent is the price. I went back to the dehydrated salmon pieces since their much more affordable to treat two kitties. Watch your felines go bonkers over these minnows!!!
cats LOVE these

I have to keep these in a drawer or the cats will chew through the bag. Lol.
They are cute minnows. Great for training and cats love these. I just wish they were sold by bulk. I can go through a bag in two days if I’m not careful.

Pauly is a former feral bad boy turned crazy housecat that constantly needs a "job" or he will get himself into trouble. He enjoyed these as a toy and a treat. We tied them onto a fishing line and it satisfied his hunt for the wild and amused us at the same time. The other three cats weren't impressed but they are the Kardashians of the house.
Not for quick eaters

These treats are actually fairly large and hard to chew. We got these for our 6 mo kitten and she loved them but tried to eat them too fast. We tried breaking them apart for her but they got stuck in her throat and she threw up. Definitely do not recommend these for cats younger than a year or kitties that eat very fast.
