    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. On the other hand, my 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. … more

  • Wild kitten approved!!!

    By on

    My 6 month old kitten absolutely ADORES these treats and fervently meows every time I even take the bag out of the cabinet. She loves to bat them around before pouncing on them and eating them. I find that they're an excellent protein supplement to her diet, I'd highly recommend for any adventurous, playful kitty!

  • These are a hit

    By on

    These freeze dried minnows are great if you cat loves fish they will love this. They are whole minnows but easy enough for older cats to eat them since they are freeze dried.

  • The best EVER!

    By on

    These tasty little fishies are the best snacks and the whole crew loves them! No finicky kitties with these. I have to make sure that the more boisterous do not grab them all so make sure you dole them out one at a time. Purrfect treats and naturally healthy
