Meowza! Some kitty got some new treats, and that kitty was ME!
The first thing I have to say about them is: it’s about time!! The Warden told me months ago that CANIDAE was introducing two new grain free cat treats and I’ve been salivating ever since. I’m pretty sure Pavlov could’ve used me to test his theory instead of those mangy dogs. But I digress.
I was anticipating these new treats for two reasons. One, I’m a cat and as such I can never have too many treats. Two, I’m a foodie and I just LOVE to eat! My food, my furry sibling’s food, the Warden’s food, treats given and treats I steal from the kitchen cupboard when the coast is clear… all good. There is no such thing as treat overload.
But here’s the thing: the Warden will only feed me the best of the best, i.e., what she calls “the good kind” of treats. No junk food for me! Which means that until now, it was the CANIDAE TidNips or nothing. Now, I have nothing against those treats because they are pawsome. I just craved a little variety now and then, ya know? Now I have two new flavors so the Warden can mix it up a little at treat time!
The Warden cares that these treats are healthy and that they’re made with fresh meat and no by-products or other unsavory ingredients. She also likes that they are grain and gluten free. Me? I just care about how they taste. Oh, and how they smell. We cats don’t eat anything that doesn’t smell good to us. I’m happy to report that these new treats passed both tests with flying colors.
The Pure Taste cat treats come in two flavors: chicken and salmon. I don’t have a favorite because really, how could I be expected to choose when they’re both so meow worthy? Picking one over the other would be the very definition of impossible.
The first night the Warden offered them to me, she went “awwwww” when she opened the bag. I was concerned that something was amiss, like maybe the bag was empty. That would be a travesty!! Call the police! Alert the media! There’s a treat thief on the loose! Oh wait … that would be me (remember the cupboard?) so no police, OK?
I hadn’t touched these, though, since they’d just arrived hot out of the oven from the CANIDAE plant in Texas. The Warden said, “Look Rocky, the treats are shaped like little hearts.” Yeah…so? She’s such a sucker for cutesy stuff like that. I just wanted to stuff those treats in my mouth.
I tried to grab the treat bag out of her hand, and little hearts flew everywhere. Jackpot! How many treats do you think I scarfed before my furry siblings got in on the action? Quite a few, actually. Foodie cats don’t share the good stuff. Ever.
When the feeding frenzy was over, the Warden smiled. She could see that we all loved these new treats, and since she lives to make us happy, she was ecstatic. Life is good. Serving a life sentence in this place is nothing short of paradise. I am one lucky kitty. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to charm some more heart-shaped treats out of the Warden.
