Treats that the whole family err fur family can enjoy

I cannot believe it is already March! February just flew on by. It seems like only yesterday, we were talking about keeping our chompers healthy during Pet Dental month and now it is almost St. Patrick’s Day. I already have my bandanna on. Some hoomans like to eat corn beef and cabbage to celebrate the holiday, I just want snacks.

This month there were lots of snacks to choose from. I wanted to go with a very limited ingredient treat this time around. So limited that it actually only has one ingredient! We, meaning I picked out Primal Beef Liver Munchies. (click on the purple link to be taken directly to the Chewy site for these treats) It contains Beef Liver. It contains zero spices or flavorings, preservatives, grains, salt, or sugar. Nothing but beef liver. Sometimes you just want a simple treat and with Primal Beef Liver Munchies, you get exactly that.

Primal treats are a very good source of protein. The bag indicates a min of  66% protein, that is a lot of protein. There is not a per treat calorie count, but the website indicates 130 calories per ounce and each bag weighs two ounces. There are a lot of treats in the bag. Mom figures under 10 calories per piece.

They are made from beef sourced in the USA, which is a total plus for us.  We prefer to buy stuff made where we live. The beef is free from antibiotics without any added hormones. That is something we really like.

The treats are bite sized and they are for cats and dogs! So my brothers can partake in some tasty goodness as well. You can see the both of us investigating the treats and seeing if it is something we might want to try. Spoiler alert, we tried and liked them!

They come in all sorts of sizes, so that the tiny ones can go to the kitties and the bigger pieces can go right into my tummy.

These treats are  freeze dried, but more importantly they are raw, so after your human gives you one or maybe ten if you are super lucky, make sure they wash their hands with soap and hot water.

Onward to the pros and cons from the three of us.

Mom says she loves that they are a single source of protein and they are good for both cats and dogs. One bag of treats can be given to all of us. She wishes that calorie count per treat was on the bag, but understands that the different sized pieces can make that determination difficult.

Icky kitty ate three of them in a row and would like them to be a little smaller. Even the small ones are a little big for his little mouth. He did not throw them back up like he does with most treats. So we know that he likes them and his sensitive tummy can handle them. (Sam kitty and Baby kitty are not fans of treats at all, so they were not included in the taste test)

I was very happy with these treats. I love raw treats. They are always super tasty. They usually contain just meat, so that is always a plus with me. I was not thrilled that I can share them with my brother. He should get his own treats!

The three of us all give paws and thumbs up. 8 paws for icky kitty and I and 2 thumbs up for mom.

Primal treats are welcome in this house, because they are quality treats and made in the USA. The raw liver munchies also come in turkey and pork. You can try all three and see which one you like best. You can see all Primal items that Chewy carries by clicking here.

This one is for the fishes

Hi! I am your guest blogger today. My name is Sam, also known as Sammy, Samuel, old yellow, and yellow kitty. I am Lily’s feline brother. Actually there are three of us! Baby and Bater are my two other feline brothers. This month we decided that it was time for us to test something out. We are not big on eating treats, so when we saw food being offered, we pounced at the chance to put some food to the test.

We are some picky kitties. Really picky eaters. One day we will like one type of can food, then the next day we will turn our tiny pink noses up at it. Baby and I are the can food eaters, Bater just likes to have a nibble here and there. He is all about the crunchy food.

The can food we got to test out is Tiki Cat. We have tried Tiki cat before, but this one is all seafood. Now remember when I said we are picky eaters? Well that includes most seafood. So mom was skeptical, but knew that we were Tiki Cat fans. She says it is her go to food when we refuse to eat anything at all. She pops open a can and suddenly we have an appetite. We just like the really good stuff!

That is Bater, he insisted on being the model. This variety pack includes the following flavors: Ahi Tuna, Sardine Cutlets, Tuna in Crab Surimi Consommé, Mackerel and Sardines in Calamari Consommé, Sardine Cutlets in Lobster Consommé, and Ahi Tuna with Crab in Tuna Consommé. WOW! That is so many different types of seafood.  We were ready to try some new types of food. After some loud meowing, she put a can down and let us see what we thought.

The first one we tried was the Ahi Tuna with Crab. It was delicious! Even the supposed hater of wet food joined in. That is really saying something.

The next day we got to try the Sardine Cutlets in Lobster Consommé. This one we had mixed reviews on. We liked the lobster part, but the sardines we did not like very much. In fact, that stinky dog ate them!

Next up was Ahi Tuna, which we thought was very good. Day by day, we got to try all the other flavors and it seems that all round we love everything but the sardines. We are just not fans of them. Just like out canine sister who hates peas, we just hate sardines.

Tiki Cat is high in protein, but low in fat. So that means we can keep fit while enjoying some very fancy food. It is also made from human grade ingredients. The quality of the seafood is so high, that it is certified for human consumption. Not that my mom would, she is not a fan of seafood.  Mom did not like the smell of them at all, but we thought they smelled very good. She does not know what she is missing.

We give this 3 paws up because of out dislike of the sardines. Don’t let that stop you from trying this food out. Tiki Cat is very tasty. To get more information on our variety pack visit Chewy.com
