A Yummy ‘New to Us’ Cat Treat
HIYA! SAVANNAH HERE!!
FTC: We were not financially compensated by Chewy.com nor Orijen to write this review. We did receive, from Chewy.com, one free bag of the product we are reviewing. All our experiences and opinions are our own. Savannah’s Paw Tracks does not review products we would not serve up to ourselves.
Here’s the scoop…I volunteered with Chewy.com to taste test a cat treat from Orijen. Now for me, this was a high risk commitment given that I don’t care for treats in general, and will only come running for my favorite one and only Party Mix.
Mom L was reluctant to make the taste test commitment knowing my
peculiar particular taste buds. But, she said ‘yes’. The Orijen Original Freeze Dried Cat Treats-Chicken flavor arrived quickly but we have saved them until now to write about.
We read up on Orijen’s “whole prey’ concept to learn more about their interest in making cat food that is more ‘natural’.
“ORIJEN WHOLE PREY is the evolution of our Biologically Appropriate™ mandate; incorporating richly nourishing fresh meats, organs, cartilage and marrow in ratios that truly mirror the natural diet.”
Mom L is reading labels on all the food and toys she buys for us so she was interested in just how ‘natural’ a diet Orijen’s had for cat treats.
“Orijen Original Freeze-Dried Cat Treats feature a symphony of cage-free chicken and turkey plus wild-caught flounder from North Vancouver Island. Each of these ingredients is delivered from local sources in fresh Whole Prey ratios so you can indulge and nourish your cat at the same time. Made without cooking or preservatives, Orijen’s Biologically Appropriate treats are gently freeze-dried to lock in the life-giving goodness and flavors of fresh and regional ingredients for a reward your cat will truly love.”
Not bad, not bad at all. We were impressed. We were looking to see if these treats had any of that blueberry, cranberry stuff. Some even are using brussel sprouts in cat food and treats! MOUSES!! My Dad P won’t even touch brussel sprouts, so why the heck should we cats…right?
Made from 100% meat and nothing else!
No Corn No Wheat No Soy”
I still wasn’t so sure, even though these treats are clearly made of very high quality natural ingredients. So I held up my paw to go first on the taste test…
Yep, I bet you know what my vote is going to be…4 paws down. Sorry Orijen, great treat quality, but this kitteh just doesn’t like soft treats. I need that ‘just like my kibble’ crunch and size…not too big like a lot of cat treats…I have a dainty mouth.
The Kid Sage was next up…guess what she thought??? (hover over each photo to view captions please and click on photo if you want to bigify)
For ME!! REALLY!!!
TKS gives this ‘new to us’ yummy to her tummy treat 4 paws up! This bag is now going to be stashed under our morning ‘treat pillow’. Yes, TKS loved it THAT MUCH.
Oh, some of you may not know about our morning routine in bed with retired Mom L and Dad P…click here, here, and here. Thank Ceiling Cat our humans are here and present to serve our every whim…*shhhh…don’t tell them I said that*
Thank you Chewy.com for giving us the opportunity to taste test this truly natural Orijen cat treat.
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
