    Minnows are a hit with my kitty!

    By Guardian on Jan 6, 2018

    I wasn't sure my cat would like these; he surprises me sometimes. So far he has liked all the products I've ordered by VitalCat. He's tried the chicken mini nibs, the turkey patties, and these minnows and goes crazy for them equally. My cat will not touch most treats.

He loves hunting and eating bugs and I think these happen to be fairly similar in texture. Crunchy and light! At first he didn't realize the first minnow was something to eat, and kind of batted at it. He was starting to walk away, uninterested, when the smell seemed to suddenly catch his attention, and he snapped back over to devour it. That being said, the odor is not strong since the fish are dry. They keep him busy for some time, too. … more

    One Kitty Likes, the Other Won't Touch

    By Kenzie on Dec 30, 2017

    I've been trying different "healthy" treats for my two kitties whenever I have to order their cat food to replace their old favorite Temptations and these were their 4th taste test. My big boy Kit Kat ate them just fine, but he pretty much eats anything you put in front of him.

My big boy Kit Kat ate them just fine, but he pretty much eats anything you put in front of him. On the other hand, my picky cat Milo refused to eat these at all. They are a little creepy since they are literally just freeze-dried fish but that's also what's nice about them, they're definitely not some slaughterhouse meat, it's a fish that you can visually see. It was 50/50 for my boys but one of them is very finicky. … more

  • Our cat had absolutely no interest in eating these

    I thought these would be a nice treat and added it to our Auto Ship. Our cat didn't want anything to do with these, sadly. I put her fave chicken treats next to the minnow we left out to see if she'd eat it later, and she ate the chicken around it and left the minnow for us.

  • What cat wouldn't like fish? Mine!

    So disappointed that both my cats wouldn't touch these. Because mine didn't like them doesn't mean yours won't. I still would recommend trying this for your cat. A healthy treat is better for them.

    My Himalayan would only bat these treats around and play with them. He wouldn't even taste of them.
