    My Cat's Favorite Treat!

    By Maxine on Mar 25, 2018

    My cat was never very inclined to accept treats before this. I bought these on a whim, thinking, "If she'll try anything, it'll be these" and I was 110% right. When I open the drawer where the treats are kept she comes running, tail straight up in the air and meowing like mad.

And I'm looking forward to trying VitalCat's other products soon! … more

    No Interest At All From Nikki

    By NikkiMommy on Mar 15, 2018

    I saw this treat from a video on YouTube. The cat in the video was so obsessed with this so I bought this to try it for Nikki. Unfortunately Nikki shows absolutely no interest at all in even touching this. I tried to lure her into eating it and managed to get it into her mouth, but she spit it out.

  • None Of My Cats Will Eat These

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I was hoping for a healthier treat to feed to my cats. Overall the product is fine but none of my cats will even touch them. They showed no interest and just left them laying on the floor.

  • One Kitty Likes, the Other Won't Touch

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    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. 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.

  • Try it, they may like it.

    When I first started giving my kitty these, she was in heaven. I could get her to do anything for them! Now, she won't touch them. Typical cat I guess:)

    My cat loves dried shrimp but wouldn't touch these. My shih tzu likes them though so no money wasted

  • my cat will eat it... but does not love it

    By on

    My cat has always had temptation treats and so I decided to try a more natural treat but my cat doesn't seem to like this too much... She will eat it but she doesn't go crazy for it.

  • My cat loves it but sometimes he throws up after eating it

    By on

    The minnows are delicious. My ragdoll seems to love it. However, sometimes this treat makes him vomit. Not gonna purchase this treat anymore.

  • Well it should have been a hit.

    I have 3 cats and thought this would be a winner but I got 3 paws down. My dog however thinks they make great sprinkles on top of her dinner.

  • it's not for the squemish!

    By on

    My daughter recommended this product because her cats were crazy about it. My first reaction upon seeing the product in person was "gross". There's just something about dead fish eyes that makes me queasy. Yes, I admit to being a wimp.I found it difficult to handle them. Not all of my cats liked them. The youngest, not yet a year, thought it was a toy and batted it all around. The oldest, a feral who has been living in my yard for more than 10 years, loved them. My other three were somewhat indifferent.

  • Great concept.

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I've got a strange boy. He loves the rabbit bites from this brand but was utterly baffled by these minnows! He'd chew at it but then repeatedly spit it back out so unfortunately he isn't a fan. However I have plenty of friends to choose from to gift this bag to and I'm sure they'll appreciate them much more than my weirdo kitten!
