Product Review – Orijen Original Cat Treats

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays.

This is the time of year when the blue shorts people bring lots of packages. One of the packages I got was from !20131211_191554

Of course, EK and I had to investigate the contents right away. 20131211_191654This is what was in it: A brand new product from ORIJEN – ORIJEN Cat Treats!20131211_191626

These treats are freeze-dried and come in 5 different flavours:

  • Original (contains chicken, turkey, and flounder)
  • Tundra (contains elk, venison, quail, and trout)
  • Regional Red (contains boar, lamb, and beef)
  • Alberta Lamb
  • Wild Boar

An information sheet came with the treats. Here’s some of what it said –

“A few important details about our new ORIJEN Cat Treats:

  • 100% Meat: Cats are carnivores, so ORIJEN Cat Treats are loaded with 100% meat in Whole Prey™  ratios.

  • Freeze-Dried: To preserve the taste and goodness of our fresh, regional ingredients, ORIJEN cat treats are freeze-dried. freeze-drying removes only water, ao all nutrients stay in the food, exactly where they should be.
  • Amazing Palatability: Loaded with fresh meats, tripe, and liver, ORIJEN Original Treats are a nutritious and delicious reward for your cat or kitten.
  • 5 Great Flavours: With three flavours matched to our award-winning dry foods and two unique single-source flavours, these treats will each be available in 25G packages containing over 100 cat treats.”

Looks pretty nutritious and doesn’t have any weird stuff in it. That sounded good to Mom. Sounded good to me, too! Tasted good too, at least to Candy and me. EK won’t eat them. That’s ok – more for us!20131211_191758 20131211_191751We really liked these treats and can’t wait to taste the other flavors. We’re gonna have to wait a while though. These aren’t for sale yet! They’re supposed to be available in a couple of months, so keep an eye out for them. I know we will be!

That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!

Product Review – Halo Healthsome Real Chicken Cat Treats

Happy Sunday everyone! Got a real ‘treat’ for you today. That’s right. I’m reviewing kitty treats! MOL

DSCN4558The nice folks over at let us try out some Halo Healthsome Real Chicken Cat Treats. As you know, mom’s pretty picky about what we’re allowed to eat. No grain, soy, or fish for us. (We’re delicate kitties, even EK.) Because of this, we don’t get to test yummy stuff furry often, so we jumped on this one. Look what’s in these treats (from the website): Chicken, Potato Flour, Pea Flour, Tapioca Flour, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols), Pumpkin, Pea Fiber, Flaxseed, Tomatoes, Catnip, Taurine, Ascorbic Acid (a Preservative). Looks pretty healthy to me and there’s nothing in there we can’t have.

Here’s what else the website has to say:

DSCN4560Halo Healthsome Real Chicken Cat Treats

Chicken’s great. Chicken and catnip? Purr! Healthsome Real Chicken Cat Treats from Halo are crunchy cat treats with just a bit of catnip to make even even the finicky felines fall in love. They’re a great source of protein and fiber, and at only 1.5 calories per treat, they’re perfect for weight-conscious lapcats. These treats also have added flaxseed to keep the coat soft and shiny.

Key Benefits

  • Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols

  • Crunchy texture helps clean teeth

  • No corn, wheat, fillers, or added sugar or molasses

  • Pumpkin assists digestive tract

DSCN4561All we know is they’re nommy! We gobbled them up, and we don’t like most treats. (Except Candy. She’s not as picky as the rest of us.) We’re eating them so fast the picture’s blurry! That’s some good eating. And at only 1.5 calories a piece, they’re good for kitties that have to watch the pounds (like Candy).

For those of you that like fish, they also come in Select Seafood Combo Flavor.

So that’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!
