    For chunks of unprocessed meat that is freeze dried the price isn't bad. All of our cats go nuts for these treats. I usually load up when they are on sale. When we get to the end of the treats I sprinkle the crumbled meat at the bottom of the bag on their wet food.

    Pros - 1 Ingredient ; perfect for those cats who suffer with allergies
    Simple and natural
    Cons - Expensive
    Not much in the bag!
    I love this product and so do my cats. I love that it is only one ingredient and natural. I've even tried them out myself (not the liver ones though! :barfgreen:).
    The only thing is that they're a little pricey. So what I usually do is buy the dog formula. You have more in it, and it's a little cheaper!

    "Tasty delight"
    Pros - Kitties enjoy it, easy to eat, pleasant and simple ingredients, very light
    Cons - Expensive, small quantity
    Really likable little snack! My kitty darlings fancy them highly. I wouldn't say they go bonkers for it compared to other treats they had and compared to the experience of other kitties, but they do enjoy it.


    U.S.A made overall, with other quick breakdowns:


    - Lamb from New Zealand
    - Chicken and most seafood is sourced from the U.S.A. Chicken jerky dried in Canada.
    - Shrimp is both from the U.S.A and India.
    - Their wet food is made in Thailand however, whether or not that is an issue.


    I do find it pricey for such a tiny amount that comes in a pack, especially the smallest size - at least for the cat options. Maybe might be alright if someone only has one cat, but more than that would barely get by. I wouldn't opt to get it all the time, but it is worthy enough for the occasional purchase for sure.

    Pros - my dog loves them! my daughters cat whom I bought them for gave them a good sniff and walked away.
    Cons - I think they are a great concept as treats go but the cat just was not interested.!
    [​IMG]"Jackson",  my daughters cat, will not eat any thing that has seafood in it. He tries to cover it up like it was poop. It is the funniest thing you ever saw. He will only eat chicken or beef wet or dry food. We have to read the labels very carefully..He is adopted from the humane center here so I do not know his background. Does any one else have a cat like that?

    "Wonerful Treat for all ages"
    Pros - Convenient, healthy, low fat low carbohydrate and low calorie, high protein snack loved by all ages
    I bought this for my diabetic kitty, she would sit through ear poking and shots just to get these treats. Best to buy the dog sized bag and cut into kitty size bites. my kittens love this as well; they come running when they hear the bag being shaken.

    "Irresistible to cats!!"
    Pros - Chicken = only ingredient
    Cons - kinda expensive
    I think these PureBites treats are irresistible to every single cat!  I have one cat who has never been interested in ANY brand of cat treat - from the crappy grocery-store Pounce treats to the expensive Orijen freeze-dried treats.  All my other cats love pretty much every kind of treat, but this one particular cat never ate a treat until I introduced him to PureBites.  Now, this cat will bulldoze the other cats out of his way to steal their PureBites away!

    I love that the only ingredient is chicken - this is simply freeze-dried raw chicken (it is a raw food).  No other additives, just chicken.  So this is a treat you can feel good about feeding your cats - it's healthy!  

    The PureBites treat bags for cats run pretty expensive - but you can save a lot if you get the big 12oz bags meant for dogs.  It's the exact same treat, just in bigger pieces so you'll need to break up the bigger pieces for your cat.  But, there have been times where I've forgotten to break up the big pieces and my cats don't have any problem eating them.  

    These are also very useful if you're trying to transition your cat from kibble to wet food - just crumble a few PureBites on top of the canned food, and your cat will happily eat it all up.  

    In summary, I think these are the healthiest treats on the market and cats go nuts for them!  They are kind of expensive, but they are sourced & manufactured in the USA, and USDA inspected & approved.  I'm totally willing to pay more for that!

    Pros - Cats love it
    Cons - Expensive
    Peaches is just over 7 years old and I have never found a treat she would eat. I bought these for my feral cats and like I always do I offer one to Peaches. She ate this so fast and was looking for more. The feral cats loved it so much. they were all in my face trying to get the treats.

    "Goodbye Temptations. It's been fun."
    Pros - These can get a reluctant eater to chow down, chicken breast is the only ingredient
    Cons - Like everyone else says-they can be expensive but they don't have to be
    I had heard about these treats on this board and decided to pick up a bag at Petco since I had my $5 rewards coupon. Both of my cats are finicky. Very finicky. Lilith, however, is a very petite cat and she's just not a big eater. Sometimes she needs to be encouraged to eat. Even foods she likes. They were $5.29 for a bag at Petco so they worked out to .29 after my pals reward. No big deal if they hate them, I figured. I gave Lilith one of these and she just went nuts. She LOVED it. She begged for another!  I crumble some up on her food when she's being fussy about eating and she gobbles her food right up.

    Sophie, on the other hand, is not a fan of them when they are dry but she does like them mixed in with wet food. Lilith will take them any way she can.

    For Amazon users, you can get an 11.6 ounce bag of these (they are the ones with a dog on the bag) with a subscribe and save order for $19.01 (with a 15% discount for having 5 or more items in your order.). That works out to $1.64 per ounce. As seen above, a 1.09 oz bag with a cat on the bag at Petco is $5.29. The treats are exactly the same. Just a different size. You do not need to be a Prime member for S&S.

    I will keep a bag of these in the house. That's for sure. I think I found the secret weapon to help me transition the girls to commercial raw so in the end, these little bits of chicken goodness will help me save money. Yay!!  [​IMG]
