    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

  • Abby approved !

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    My cat loves these treats ! She doesn't usually get any treats, so I looked for something wholesome and natural, like the raw food she eats for her meals. These are awesome ! Highly recommended for folks who want to know exactly what their cats are ingesting...Abby gives it 2 paws up !

  • My cat loves these

    By on

    While I found them disgusting, with their dead eyes, my cat found them delicious! He gets one a day with his dental treats, but he busted into the bag to get more! A few in the bag were bad, and he would not eat them, but otherwise crunches them right up!

  • loves them

    By on

    I thought I would try these. I didn't think she would like them. Boy was I wrong, I just show her the bag and she goes nuts. Like cats who eat catnip. I do feel sorry for the fish, I think some of them were alive when they went through the process.

  • Will purchase these for life!

    By on

    I got these for my 3 cats to try. Only 1 cat likes them. But he doesn't just like them... he LOVES them! He begs for them every morning and acts hilarious when it comes to these minnows. I throw them across the room and he chases them and plays with them and then devours them. My dog also loves these and so does my aquatic turtle.

  • Cat Goes CRAZY for These Treats

    By on

    I have never had my cat go crazier for a treat. She loses her mind when she even hears the wrinkle of the bag. She has even managed to rip the bag open so she can get to the treats. Sometimes they make her a little TOO crazy but I feel good knowing that I am feeding her natural treats that she loves.

  • Perfect for all pets

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    They sell these locally so I gave them a try for our cat. Our dog also loves these. There doesn’t seem to be much difference in the cat and dog bags (size and packing). My pets love them. Glad to add to auto ship.

  • six cats went totally bananas for them

    By on

    my crew went CRAZY for these things. I noticed some cats do not like them so i should mention that they are raw and canned food only fed so they are use to different meats. I had them all crying and swarming. I will be using these for clicker training they are the best! no unhealthy grains or starches.

  • My boys will eat anything, but my alpha tries to bargain for these

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I got these once during an awareness campaign and my boys loved them, so I ordered them again. My alpha will dance around and try to grab these out of my hand, while my other male politely waits at his dish to have his fishies delivered. I'm considering buying the dog version just for the larger quantity, but I have to double check that they are the same ingredients. If you're squeamish, these may not be for you: They are whole fish, dried eyeballs and all.

  • They Look Nasty But Schnitzel Loves Them

    By on

    My boy loves these and I am happy to give them to him! They are kinda gross since they're just whole minnows but I know exactly what is in these treats and I love that about them.
