Welcome back to the next installment of the Monthly Meow!

This is the series where we review a kitty-friendly product with my favorite alien-faced furball, Daechir!

This month we had the opportunity to try the Orijen Wild Boar Freeze Dried Treats.*

wild boar treats1.jpg

This product is made from pure and natural wild boar raised free-range in Alberta, Canada, and retails for $7 on Chewy.com for 1.25oz (approx. 100 treats)

wild boar treats2.jpg

Orijen makes these treats in their own freeze dry kitchens without cooking or the use of preservatives so all nutrients are fully retained! As you can see, there are only 2 ingredients, boneless wild boar and boar liver, which I really appreciate.

If you’ve been here for any length of time, you’ll know that I typically go for food and treats that are very natural for Daechir, which can be incredibly difficult because she’s VERY VERY picky.

wild boar treats3.jpg

However, I’m really happy to share with you that she really enjoys these treats! Something about these are very enticing to her, so if you have a picky cat too, I think these could definitely be a winner for you too.

To wrap up my thoughts, Daechir loves these, and I love the quality and price of them. This is a total hit, and I’m very interested to try more from Orijen!

Big thank you to Chewy.com for sending us this product to try out, and thank you for reading it! If you enjoyed this, come back next month for another installment of The Monthly Meow.

As always,

thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow : Taste Of The Wild Rocky Mountain Canned Cat Food

Welcome back!

Today’s post is a personal monthly favorite of mine, The Monthly Meow, where we review a feline product sent to us by Chewy.com!

Before we get into things, let’s take a peek at today’s talent.

lazy cat.jpg (There is no smoothing filter or anything on her, she’s just so shiny she’s reflects the light like crazy!) 

You can see her here in her natural habitat, curled up in a pile of blankets. Something tells me she wasn’t appreciating the impromptu photo shoot.

This month we had the opportunity to try out the Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Canned Food.

taste of the wild

This is available in two options; 3 oz cans in a case of 24 ($17), and 5 oz cans in a case of 24 ($31) on Chewy.com

The key benefits of this food are as follows;

  • Grain-free diet with real salmon, chicken liver and roasted venison
  • Supplemented with vegetables and fruits, this formula delivers antioxidants to help give your furry friend a healthy lifestyle
  • A great-tasting complement to the Rocky Mountain Feline dry formula, or a stand-alone diet for your special cat
  • Perfect combination of animal proteins will provide your cat with ideal protein nutrition for a lean body and optimal amino acid nutrition
  • Lowers carbohydrate intake and increases water intake, both important features in feline nutrition

I’m relatively familiar with Taste Of The Wild, as it’s what we were feeding the puppies before we decided to make the switch to American Journey. The brand is typically known for having very high quality grain free food.

cat food ingredients.jpg

As you can see, there’s a really interesting array of ingredients. However, the highest concentration of ingredients are all meat and meat products which I greatly appreciate.

foood.jpg

This food isn’t a solid pate as you may think, but actual chunks of meat suspended in a thick broth.

As for the price, this is on par with other foods of this quality.

If you’ve been here for any length of time you’d know Daechir has become exceptionally picky when it comes to food, and I think I figured out why. After doing a little research a lot of people have noticed their cats having addictive responses to Friskies, so as a result of that, Daechir wasn’t super interested in this which I found strange, since something like this is usually right up her alley. Because of that, I take no points away from this food for that and I will be working to wean Daechir off of Friskies. If anyone has any helpful tips on doing so, please let me know!

Check back to my blog in a few weeks, because I’m going to have a kitty guest star try this out and give you his thoughts on this food, along with other things Daechir hasn’t particularly enjoyed in the past.

When it comes to quality and price, this food gets a HUGE thumbs up from me! I’m really a fan of the Taste of the Wild brand. If you have been looking for a good grain free food for your furry friend, this definitely has my seal of approval!

That’ll do it for today’s post, thank you for reading and thank you to Chewy.com for sending this to us!

The Monthly Meow : VetriScience Perio Plus Feline Bites

(Affiliate links are specified with an asterisk. I do receive a small commission from purchases made through these links or via clicks) 

Welcome back to our latest installment of The Monthly Meow! February marks a full year of doing this series, so thank you so much to Chewy.com and those of you who enjoy these posts for supporting it! It’s been a wonderful year, and I’m looking forward to the next.

lilbbyalien.jpg

This month, my favorite black cat, Daechir, is bringing you a review on the VetriScience Perio Plus Feline Dental Bites*. 

vetriscience bag 1.jpg

These come in a  4.23oz  (60 pcs) size and retail for $4.79 on Chewy.com.

 

vetriscience bag 2.jpg

A look at the ingredients above, and a the benefits of this product. (Copied from Chewy.com)

  • Support dental health in between cleanings with a dual action delivery system
  • Outer layer contains natural ingredients such as Yucca Schidigera Extract, Champignon Mushroom Extract, Cinnamon, Spirulina and Parsley work together to freshen breathe and cleanse the mouth
  • Inner core contains minerals such as Zinc and Taurine to support gum health
  • High palatability that even the most finicky felines will love these chews
  • Helps reduce the buildup of bacteria 

As you can see, these have super high quality ingredients and come in at a low price tag, which is totally up my alley.

treat-flower

The little flower shape is super cute, and they’re not too hard, so they’d be good for mature cats or cats with dental issues.

However, Daechir just really isn’t a fan of these. She’ll lick them until they’re soggy and gross, but won’t actually eat them. The only way I can get her to eat them is by putting them into her food, which totally works for me. If I can get her to eat a healthy treat that is this good for her, I’ll do it any way I can. It isn’t necessarily inconvenient.

So to sum it up, I think these are great treats. Vet quality at an affordable price, doesn’t get much better than that. Even though Daechir wouldn’t eat them outright, she’ll eat them in her food so I give one to her every meal.

However, Daechir does prefer the Prime Taste Dental Treats* (specifically the Super Salmon flavor), also available at Chewy.com.

prime treats.jpg

These are $2, and they’re tooth-shaped, which is cute, and something about the shape actually forces her to chew them instead of just inhaling them.

tooth-snacks

They work really well, and keep her breath not smelling exactly like Friskies, which is a huge plus when she’s breathing in my face at 2 in the morning. (I did purchase these myself, in case you were wondering. I blog with Chewy, but I’m also a loyal customer!)

Either way, if the VetriScience treats seem like something your furry friend would enjoy, I do recommend them. If you’ve got a super picky cat like I do, slip one in their food at meal time or go with the Prime Taste treats, since they seem a little more appealing to finicky cats.

And that’ll do it for today’s post! I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and if you have please be sure to stop by next month for the next Monthly Meow post!

As always,

thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow: Evanger’s Nothing But Natural Gently Dried Beef Heart Treats

(Affiliate links are specified with an asterisk. I do receive a small commission from purchases or clicks on said links)

Welcome back to the next installment of The Monthly Meow! Can you believe we’ve been doing these for almost a year? Crazy!

If you’re not familiar, The Monthly Meow is when we review a product for our feline friends, courtesy of Chewy.com and my cat, Daechir.

This month we’ll we talking about the Evanger’s Gently Dried Beef Heart Treats.* These are not only for cats, but dogs and ferrets.

evangers beef heart 1.jpg

This 3.5 oz bag retails for $8.39 on Chewy.com, very fair for 100% whole meat hand cut treats, in my opinion.

beef heart ingredients.jpg

As you can see, the only ingredient is beef heart, which is exactly what I want to see from pet treats.  Now, let’s look at some of the benefits listed from Chewy.com.

  • Single ingredient beef hearts are nutrient dense treats that can be a treat, training award, food topper, or reconstituted in warm water for 3-5 minutes for a savory snack.
  • Grain-free, gluten-free product, endorsed by the cRc Kosher for Passover.
  • No additives or artificial ingredients
  • Highly palatable treats are perfect for finicky or picky pets
  • Suitable for both dogs & cats  

Now I initially thought ‘gently dried’ meant that they would still have a bit of softness to them, and completely neglected the fact that they say “extra crunchy” on the front of the package. Let me tell you, that is 100% true. These say they can be reconstituted in warm water, but it didn’t really work for me.

beef heart pieces.jpg

Because of the extreme crunchiness, Daechir just really didn’t have any interest in them. She would maybe lick them, but they were just a little much for her. However, the dogs LOVED these. They absolutely couldn’t get enough, and loved the super crunchy texture. So if your cat (or pet) has dental issues, I wouldn’t recommend this for them. But for our 7 month old puppies, these were a smash hit.

As you can see in the photo, these are actually very large treats. Before giving them to the dogs I would snap them in half, because one per each seems like a lot to me and a possible choking hazard, but that’s up to your discretion.  If your dogs don’t double as Dysons, that may not be a concern to you.

Overall, my cat had zero interest in these. But, I think they’re an excellent value for quality, and the puppies were head over heels for these super crunchy beef heart chunks. Even though Daechir wasn’t a fan, I still give these a big thumbs up, and am interested in trying more from Evangers.

 

And with that, we’ll end today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and if you have, be sure to subscribe to see more like this.

As always,

thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow: VitalEssentials Freeze Dried Rabbit Treats

Welcome back to our next installment of The Monthly Meow, Halloween edition! So obviously, I have to share a few throwback photos of some of my favorite Halloween moments with my favorite black cat.

1157387_886175881392675_4661167200575297507_n.jpg (Daechir and I “decided” to go as twins a few years ago. Clearly, I was more into it than she was.)  

This October, we had the opportunity to try out the VitalEssentials VitalCat Freeze Dried Rabbit Treats!

IMG_6454.JPG

If you’ve been a fan of this little series, you’ll know that my favorite treats to feed Daechir are natural, grain free snacks. And these might be a new favorite.

vital-cat-back

As you can see, the ingredients are just rabbit meat and organs. I love how the back of the packaging really gives you all the information you would want and need about the product, even detailing the process of how they freeze dry the products.

These retail for $4.49 on Chewy.com, making it the most affordable place to purchase these.

vital cat nibbles.jpg

From an owner’s standpoint, these are the BEST freeze dried treats I’ve ever come across. I’ve had issues with other brand’s being very flaky and falling apart before I even get a chance to give them to Daechir. These are much more solid, and completely keep their shape, while still being easy for cats and kittens to eat. I would even feel comfortable traveling with these, because they’re completely mess free.

I also really appreciate how you can actually see the difference between the meat and the organ meat in the treats. I can’t get over how wonderfully simple these are, and they are exactly what I look for in a treat.

 

10322492_856904997661707_468897076480673432_n.jpg

The best thing about these treats? Daechir the Pumpkin Queen totally approves.

I haven’t seen her get this excited over new treats in a really long time. She is incredibly picky,but she really enjoys these.

The texture is crunchy, while still being comfortable to eat, and she LOVES the rabbit flavor. I haven’t really given her much that’s been rabbit flavored, but I think I should start, because she really seems to like it.

This is probably the first time I can say that I really don’t have a single con with this product. It’s user friendly, an Daechir can’t get enough. This is the perfect treat, and if I don’t buy a replacement bag, Daechir might not love me anymore, and who could blame her?

To sum it all up, these are awesome treats. Great quality for a great price point, and I really couldn’t be happier with these. Big thumbs up from me, and I think I need to explore the VitalEssentials line a little more!

10520574_872160652802808_5493087721702993350_n

Last but not least, tiny photo of Daechir in her hot dog costume from a few years ago. I know, she is really enjoying it. But don’t worry, she was only willing to wear it long enough for a photo anyways.

And with that, we end today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and please sign up for email notifications for future posts to see more like this!

The Monthly Meow: NEW Purely Fancy Feast Natural Treats

Welcome back!

I certainly hope you guys didn’t think we forgot about Daechir because of the new puppies! My favorite kitty is still going to be here to bring you a new review courtesy of Chewy.com, like we have for the past 6 months.

13177806_1224692410874352_6015519593848985116_n.jpg (Obligatory photo of Daechir because she’s the most beautiful cat ever.)  

This month we’ll be talking about a new product from Fancy Feast that I’m very excited about, the Purely Fancy Feast Natural Treats!

Ffancy Feast treats.jpg

This variety pack retails for only $3.75 (on Chewy.com) for 10 stay-fresh packs of 3 different flavors.

little packets.jpg

The pack contains 3 packets of the tuna and salmon flavors each, and 4 of the chicken flavor.

We can probably all guess what the ingredients are. Just the meat. That’s it! This is a pretty big deal, especially for an affordable treat. Most treats I come across at this price point are not nearly as natural as these are. I am so glad Fancy Feast brought this out, because spoiler alert? This might be a new must have.

These treats are all steamed and hand flaked, and completely natural. The treat itself is suspended in a small amount of broth inside the packet, so don’t go crazy and just tear this guy open, because you will make a mess. The broth being there is great, because it helps the food to stay preserved without having to add an unnecessary preservative, and keeps the treat moist (I know, worst word ever. I’m so sorry.). 

grainy-inside-photo-yay-so-professional (Sorry about the quality of this photo, but you get the idea!) 

The actual piece of meat is relatively large, as you can see in comparison to my thumb. If we’re being honest, I have small fingers. But still, it’s decently sized. If you wanted to just use half of the treat and put the other half back in the packet and store it in the fridge for later, you could definitely do that.

Now for what everyone is waiting for, how does Daechir (Aka, the world’s pickiest cat) like these treats? And the answer is, she loves them! She always gobbles up the whole thing and very clearly enjoys it. Her favorite treats are the Temptations ones, and I’ll continue to give her those here and there, but I really want to have these as her main treat. I couldn’t be happier with the price point, it’s very fair for what you’re getting, and I’m happy to give her a snack that’s healthy and affordable.

To wrap up this post, I TOTALLY recommend these! Probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever received for Daechir, and she likes them just as much as I do. If you’ve got a picky kitty at home, definitely log onto Chewy.com and pick this little gem up!

And that’ll be it for today’s post! I hope you’ve enjoyed it, and be sure to sign up for email notifications of my future posts.

As always,

The Monthly Meow: Catit Treat Ball

Welcome back!

It’s that time of the month again, where Daechir and I bring you a review for a product just for your furry friends, courtesy of Chewy.com!

12227187_1101713983172196_7941875106625366969_n.jpg (Laundry bags are obviously the best place for a casual hangout) 

This month we’ll be talking about the Catit Treat Ball Toy.

treat ball packaing.jpg This is a toy that you can put your cat’s treats in, and they have to knock it around to get the them out!

There are very few claims about this product, basically all stating to keep your cat occupied, and reduce feline obesity by making them work for their snacks.

This retails for $4.99 on Chewy.com, and are available in pink and blue.

Now, with all of these details out of the way, let’s take a look at the actual product!

treat ball.jpg

The ball itself is actually pretty weighty and sturdy, so the chances of your cat breaking this are incredibly slim, in my opinion. Unless your cat is The Hulk. Very small cats wouldn’t get a whole lot of use out of this, because it would most likely be too heavy for them to really knock around. Any larger cat shouldn’t have an issue, though. Daechir weighs about 4 lbs, and she has no issue playing with this.

So as you can see, you basically drop the treat in the ball, and it spirals to the bottom. There are different openings if you rotate the top, from fully open, to the small hole you see above, to completely closed.

treat ball openings I typically fill the ball with 3 or 4 treats (Daechir’s favorites are Temptations) through the wide opening, and then I close it off to the small hole so it’s a little more challenging for her to get the treats out.

The ball rolls really easily, but the treats will get stuck in the bottom, so I occasionally have to shake it a bit to get the treats rolling around again.

treat ball spiral.jpg

Now for the most important part, how does Daechir feel about it?

As we recall, Daechir tried out the Friskies Pull and Play toy a few months ago and really wasn’t interested at all. However, I’m happy to report that she actually has been having a lot of fun with this!

She doesn’t necessarily go out of her way to play with it, but if I initiate, she has a lot of fun chasing it around and sniffing the treats out.My cat is incredibly picky when it comes to toys, but something about this just really gets her interested and engaged.

Ultimately, I would definitely recommend this for cats who are in need of a little more exercise, or a very active kitty who needs to blow off a little steam. This is definitely the best treat dispenser type toy I’ve found, and if this sounds like something your cats would enjoy, definitely give it a try!

And that’ll be it for today’s post. I hope you’ve enjoyed this, and if you have please subscribe to receive email notifications of future posts!

And as always,

thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow: Cat-Man-Doo Extra Large Dried Bonito Flakes for Cats & Dogs!

Welcome back!

Today is our July edition of The Monthly Meow, where our guest, Daechir, helps us review a pet friendly product courtesy of Chewy.com!

bb.jpg (Exclusive photos of intense cuddles)

July has been a busy month for us, as I’m sure it was for everyone! We had family here for the 4th, and took an impromptu trip to Mt.Rushmore!

Luckily, we had plenty of time to try out the Cat-Man-Doo Bonito Flakes!

bonito flakes.jpg (This retails for $19.48 on Chewy.com, making it the cheapest place to purchase this product.) 

Unlike all of the other products I typically talk about, these are suitable for both cats and dogs, and that’s because all that’s in it is fish. Yep, just dried bonito tuna flakes. No preservatives, no additives, just fish.

catmandoo.jpg

This is the extra large flakes in a 4 oz bag, but there is an alternative with crushed dried flakes called “sprinkles” that comes in a 2.5 oz bottle, if you’re more interested in that.

This is meant to be used as a treat, or as a meal additive. So if your pet is a finicky eater like Daechir, the smell of this is very enticing for them, so you can sprinkle a few flakes onto their food to really stimulate their appetites.

flakes vs hand.jpg

As you can see, the flakes are pretty large. Not all of them are this size, and are very easily crushed, but that really isn’t a big deal to me. I don’t mind if they’re more sprinkles than flakes.

One thing that really needs to be mentioned is that these have a very strong scent. I find it pretty offensive, but my boyfriend says it smells like smoked salmon and it doesn’t bother him. After giving these to Daechir, my hands will reek like these so I wash them pretty much immediately.  Ultimately, it’s not a huge deal because Daechir loves the smell.

flakes

If you’ve been reading The Monthly Meow for any length of time, you’d know that Daechir is very picky. Her favorite treats are Temptations, and she doesn’t even usually give other treats the time of day. But I’m happy to report that she is really a fan of them. She can smell the open bag from a mile away and comes running.

I ask her if she wants some “stinky fish flakes”(what they’ve been dubbed at our home) and she knows exactly what I’m talking about, and goes nuts, as you can see in THIS video from my Instagram!

From an owner’s standpoint, I think this is really a great product. Daechir loves them, they’re useful as not only treats, but as a food additive and appetite stimulant.  I’m also really impressed with how straightforward it is. There’s no concern for harmful ingredients, it’s just dried fish.

As for Daechir’s thoughts, she’s a big fan.Which says a lot, since she’s so particular about her treats and food. This is actually something I see myself repurchasing, because I think if we run out with no backups, there may be mutiny in the ranks.

And that’ll be it for today’s post! Thank you to Chewy for giving us the opportunity to do this every month, we always have fun trying out the products and adding  new things to Daechir’s life!

If you’ve never ordered from Chewy, I strongly recommend doing so. I have never shopped with a company that has better customer service than they do. Before I ever blogged with them, I was and still am a shopper. So I don’t just say this because we do this every month. Every time I have an interaction with anyone on the Chewy team, I am so impressed by how they connect with and truly care about all of their customers. People I have referred to Chewy have nothing but good things to say. So don’t just take my word for it, make an order and experience it for yourself, because I guarantee you’ll be a happy customer.

And as always, thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow: Solid Gold Holistic Delight Creamy Bisque with Tuna & Coconut Milk

Welcome back to our next installment of the Monthly Meow!

If you’re new here, this is where we talk about and review one kitty product once a month courtesy of Chewy.com!

muffin.jpg

This month was a little different than others, because Daechir had herself a little solo adventure.

I’ve never gone into Daechir’s story, and what led us to having her (If you are interested in that, let me know!) but basically, she’s strictly an indoor cat for a lot of reasons. We take her outside on a harness, but she really does not have any outdoor skills to speak of. So this month during a pretty good storm, a door opened and Daechir snuck out. We noticed at about 10 that she wasn’t in sight, so being the crazy cat woman I am, I immediately went into a panic.

Long story short, I looked for her from about 10 until 8 am the next morning, and learned that it is in fact possible for a human being to cry for 10 hours straight. We live in a very rural town, right next to a highway, so my biggest concern was other animals (Daechir is  very small, she weights about 4 lbs and she’s 3 years old)  or her getting hit by car.

Finally, after much prayer, and many tears, I heard her meow from an old abandoned building across the street from our house (which I searched several times, I must add), ran over there, called to her, and she ran right into my arms. She looked like a drowned rat, stunk to high heaven, and had a few scratches, but she was totally okay, and we’re both very happy she’s home.

So with that being said, we had a very eventful month. Luckily, before her little adventure, we were able to try out the Pure Gold Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque with Tuna & Coconut Milk food pouches.

Holistic Delights.jpg  (This case of 12 3 oz pouches retails for $14.28 at Chewy.com, making Chewy the most affordable place to purchase this product.) 

Holistic Delights cat food.jpg

The box that the food is shipped in converts into a very useful container for the pouches, which is a bonus. Now, onto the details of the food itself.

PicMonkey Collagefood 2.jpg

Some of the key benefits of this product:

  • Shredded tuna meat in a creamy coconut bisque
  • Single portions in an easy-to-serve pouch
  • Grain-free and gluten-free recipe
  • No corn, wheat, soy or artificial colors or flavors
  • Suited for all life stages  

(Copied from Chewy.com description)  

There are several other flavors available, this is just one of many.

So I really like the holistic aspect of this food. I love knowing exactly what goes into my cat’s food, with no unnecessary chemicals or questionable ingredients.

fud.jpg

Here’s how it looks out of the package. “Creamy bisque” is a really accurate description of this. Now this isn’t necessarily that important, but it should be noted that the smell is very strong, bordering on offensive. Cat food never particularly smells delicious, but I got a little of this on my hand and didn’t notice for awhile, and when I caught a whiff of it I literally gagged. It’s not even a strong fishy smell like one would expect, it’s just really hard to describe, but it’s far from pleasant.

With that being said, I could get past the scent if my cat liked it, but unfortunately, she doesn’t.

I’ve mentioned before that Daechir is really, really picky with her food. For almost 3 years, she refused to eat anything that wasn’t Fancy Feast. She wouldn’t touch it, and would literally rather starve herself because she’s a huge drama queen. Then, out of nowhere, she decided she doesn’t like Fancy Feast anymore and will only eat Friskies. I have no idea why she is like this, but she’s weird (This is the same cat that woke me up in the middle of the night because her food had collected to the sides of her bowl and she needed me to push it back into the middle….I’m ashamed to say I actually did it.)

I tried to feed this to her 5 times. The 5th time she actually tasted it, gave it a few licks, and then completely lost interest. I’ve just concluded that she doesn’t like it, and I’m not going to force her to eat it.

There’s an abandoned house down the street from my place where a lot of neighborhood cats hang out to do cat stuff, so I put some of this food out in a disposable bowl for the cats over there to see if anyone would eat it. When I checked in the morning, the entire bowl was GONE. I don’t mean the food inside of it, I mean the bowl itself. Nowhere to be seen. Kind of creeped me out honestly. So someone or something apparently really liked it, enough to steal the entire bowl.

Just because my cat didn’t love it, doesn’t mean that yours won’t. My cat is supremely picky, and this food has really great reviews on Chewy.com. If you’ve been thinking about getting it, definitely pick it up and try it, and see if your cat loves it!

I really wish I could say more about this food, but I think the quality of it is excellent, and if you’re looking for a good holistic wet food that’s affordable, give this a try!

And  that’ll be it for this month’s Monthly Meow! It was kind of a crazy, but I’m glad Daechir and I were able to bring you this month’s review! If you’ve liked this post and want to see more, be sure to subscribe or follow!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

The Monthly Meow -Friskies Pull ‘n Play Play Pack Cat Treat Toy

Welcome back to the next installment of The Monthly Meow!

This month Daechir and I got to try out the Friskies Pull ‘n Play Play Pack.

In the box you get the toy itself (Which is named Wobbert, I must add), a full bag of treats, and one of the Friskies Pull ‘n Play treats.

 

So the first thing I have to mention is what a deal this set is. One bag of the Friskies Party Mix treats are approximately $4, and one Pull ‘n Play is $3. This entire set is only $4.45 on Chewy.com, so you’re basically getting the toy for free, which is awesome.

The toy is basically like a Weeble, if anyone remembers those. It’s weighted at the bottom, so no matter what your cat does to it, it stays upright. There is a small hole on the side of the base of the toy for the treats to come out.

To put the toy together, you take the little head off (sounds a little morbid) and string one of the Pull ‘n Play treats through the holes, and fill the base with the traditional treats.

As for how my cat feels about this, she’s not shown as much interest as I thought she would. She’s very picky with toys, and it can be really hard to keep her attention with them, and that’s basically what happened with this.

She realized pretty quickly that this toy had treats inside. And instead of doing what a normal cat would and playing with it to get the treats out, she just pushes it far enough to knock the treats out, eats them, and walks away. She has been using this as more of a food dispenser than a toy, which in all honesty, makes it MUCH more entertaining for me than for her. She also has no interest in the Pull ‘n Play treat whatsoever. She will gnaw at it a little bit, but has no interest in eating it at all.

With that being said, I think this is a great toy and a fantastic deal (if you purchase on Chewy, it is more expensive everywhere else, as things typically are). Just because my picky cat doesn’t play with it in the conventional sense does not mean that I don’t think it’s a good product!

So to wrap up this post, I do recommend this because it’s a great deal, and the toy itself is great quality!
