You say stinky, I say super yummy.

These past few weeks have been very busy for me. I ran in 2 separate 5k’s, found out I am down 0.8 lbs from my last vet visit, and got my doggy Xanax for upcoming holidays where humans like to shoot off loud booming things that make me a very scared pup. My human and I got 3rd place in her age division in one of the 5k’s! I earned a medal in a 5k and that was totally the best feeling next to chin scratches of course.

Clearly the medal was for me since it has a paw on the front of it!

Onward to the important part of this months blog. TREATS! We had lots of options to pick from this month and we decided to stick with what we know. We love Merrick Pet Care products and decided to try out one of the Backcountry Jerky Treats. We were sent Pacific Catch Real Salmon Jerky Dog Treats. They are long pieces of jerky that can be broken apart easily for portion control or to use for a long training session.

These tasty treats have just four little ingredients.  They are made with deboned salmon, dried skim milks, mixed tocopherols (which acts as a preservative), and rosemary extract. Per the norm with Merrick, the deboned salmon is the first ingredient. That makes my tummy happy.  We like when treats have meat as the first ingredient.  Why bother calling it a salmon, turkey, chicken, beef, deer, etc treat if you are going to have a bunch of other stuff listed first.  If it is a meat treat, then show us the meat.

The salmon jerky sure looked tasty, it was kind of hard to not grab the jerky while my human snapped some photos.

When I smell something yummy, it is a little hard to control myself! I finally got to grab that piece of jerky and boy was it worth the wait! It was a little chewy, but very yummy. I bit it in half and enjoyed every single bite. I only got to have one treat because they are 78 kcals per treat. That of course is my whole daily treat amount. The good part is that because they can be broken up, they can last a long time.

Pros: grain free, limited ingredient, protein has the first ingredient, made in the USA, and all natural

Cons: I do not have any cons, but my human says that are super stinky and washed her hands like 7 times to get rid of the smell. (she hates all fish, so this might not be an issue for seafood lovers) and she wishes the calorie count was lower. However not everyone is like her and is a calorie counter when it comes to food and treats. I thought they had a fabulous smell, but she says I eat kitty poop, so I can’t voice my opinion on what smells good or bad.

Merrick jerky treats also come in Chicken.  If you want more information on these treats then click 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
