Zukes All Natural Cat Treats

Date Wed, April 16 2014

cabinetI feel like such a horrible person. Okay, maybe horrible isn’t exaxctly the right word. It’s just that this review is long overdue, but let me explain why.

Whenever I bring treats or cat food into this house, I have to hide it or move it into a container that the cats won’t chew threw. For instance, I bought dry food the other day. I set the bag down on the kitchen chair long enough to visit the bathroom. When I came back, Phantom had torn not one, but two!, holes in the bag. I then emptied it into the giant plastic canister that I have especifically for this reason.

When it comes to treats, bags typically go in the fridge. I’ve tried using a cabinet, but the cats know how to open those, which is why I used to use door locks. When I received the box of Zuke’s treats to review, the entire box went in the fridge, and the door closed. I kept forgetting that I needed to write this review because they weren’t in my face. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Well, not anymore!

My boys are super appreciative of the folks at Zuke’s who sent them a few packages of all-natural cat treats. I got both the Natural Purrs and the G-zees. I started with the Natural Purrz, which come in both salmon and chicken flavors. Neither of my cats seems to care about flavor.

They’re not the crunchy kind. Rather, Zuke’s NATURAL PURRZ treats are soft and chewy. They remind me a bit of these treats that I previously reviewed. They definitely look and smell meaty. This is because meat is the first ingregient — not corn byproduct or what-have-you. The treats also have  omega 3 fish oil, which is good for fur!

The shape are tiny Zs. Yes, that sounds weird but I meant it. They’re small enough to fit in the treat ball, wherever that may be at this moment. The site says that cats prefer treats with angles. I don’t know about all that. Sometimes they chew on me and I’m pretty curvy. LOL Goliath does seem a little hesitant to chew on these. He’s kind of a dainty eater when it comes to treats, which is exactly why his brother winds up getting most of them — Goliath takes too long and Phantom swoops in and gobbles up his treats. Oops! However, this could be that he doesn’t like them cold. Otherwise, he seems to like them just fine after he’s taken the time to think about them.

The G-zees treats have the same shape, but they’re a bit darker in color — as if that matters. These treats are grain-free, but they also have cranberry and glucosamine. Both of those ingredients help humans with join problems so I bet these treats would be good for older cats or cats with bone problems. According to the Zuke’s website, cranberry is also good for the urinary tract, which you might know as a human.

I didn’t notice any major improvement when it came to their coats, but both cats seemed to enjoy these treats well enough. Natural Purzz cost just $3.99 and G-Zees cost $1 more from the Zuke’s website. You can also find them on Amazon. They make great add-on items!

Zuke’s also makes dog treats if you’re a furparent to a canine!

    OMG, you have some seriously crafty cats – they can open cabinets? My cat was crafty, but not that good. LOL

    I love that these treats are soft and chewy. And what a great price! I’ll have to keep these in mind if we get another cat in the future (I’m working on my husband…he’s a bit hesitant after the loss of our last cat).
