    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.

    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.

I love Vital Essentials, but this one is not for my kitty. … more

    These are special treats! I stick them in the freezer bcuz my kitten is teething. She loves them! I only gave 4 stars bcuz i honestly get all squeamish about touching them. But its not about me, these are a winner for her.

  • Cats LOVED these!!!

    By on

    two of my three cats LOVED these. Sniffed them for a minute and then when they realized what it was, gobbled it right up! My senior kitty doesn't seem to like them. I am not sure why.

    One cat loved them, one cat didn't show much interest. She's picky, anyway. If she saw the other cat eat it, she might have shown more interest...either that, or she was just late for her 8 hr nap. Who knows. My male took it to his bed. He's a pig. He'll eat just about anything.

  • something different

    By on

    I wanted to try different in terms of treats and heard that cats go crazy for freezedried and these happened to catch my eye so I bought two bags for a test run. Admittedly, it took me a moment to get over the initial queasiness to stick my hand into the bag but I got over it quickly. The bags come with a pretty good amount of minnows with a nice variety in size, mostly big ones, and they were not a crumbled mess. When it came to the cats it was a hit and miss; of my five cats three of them did not care for the treats at all while the other two tried to take off my fingers for them. Because of those two cats I will be buying more of these and hopefully the rest will give them a shot.

  • A whole food treat for my cat! Yes!!

    By on

    I thought these were very unique and they caught my eye. I am always on the search for different treats for my kitties. I was skeptical about the amount but there is a good amount in the bag. They do not have a very strong odor, which is good for me. Unfortunately two out of my three cats will not eat them. I will still get them for my old man because he loves to crunch these up and would eat all I give him. (I only give him about three or four a week). I really thought my youngest would go for these because her momma was semi-feral and supplemented their diet with lizards she caught. This is before I found the kitties. I rescued them at about 3 1/2 weeks old. I found out that no lizard is safe I thought these were very unique and they caught my eye. I am always on the search for different treats for my kitties.

  • Acquired taste

    By on

    At first, my cat was not thrilled about these. I think, because they don't resemble any other cat treat or kibble, he wasn't sure what to think. Now he is used to them, and he goes absolutely crazy when the bag comes out. He loves those little fishies!

    Interestingly my kitties would not take these little treats. However, my dogs love them.
