FUN with INABA Churu Lickable Purée
Several weeks ago, I watched this fun cat video and the channel owner suggested I try it with Charlie and Trigg.
I didn’t think I would do it, but there are often times when I don’t follow through with a fun video – so I ordered the Churu from Amazon when I could and told myself to get it done.
I had previously given them the lickable Churu puree, but didn’t want to make it a routine thing because some of the ingredients in it aren’t to my liking – Namely the tapioca, guar gum, fructooligosaccharide.
But, I am not opposed to them having it every now and again. Just not daily, weekly or maybe even monthly.
When my cat Rags was dying of kidney disease, it was very difficult to get him to eat. Churu would have been great to get him to eat – so I always try to try things on my cats that might work later if I am in that predicament again.
Supplies Needed to Do This with Your Cat
In order to get this set up, we needed:
- Plastic Wrap
- INABA Churu Lickable Purée Natural Cat Treats
- Spoon (optional for spreading Churu on plastic wrap)
- Chair or Doorway
As you can see in the video embedded in this post, I wrapped the plastic wrap around the legs of a chair. The original video just put the plastic wrap across a doorway.
Then, I used tape to secure the plastic wrap so that it was taut around the legs of the chair. And then I used the scissors to cut open the bag of INABA Churu Lickable Purée Natural Cat Treats.
I then just dropped dollops of the Churu on the plastic wrap so that I could spread it vertically on the plastic wrap.
I then had to help the cats find it and access it because they could smell it, but they couldn’t figure out where it was located.
Charlie took after it the most. Trigg wasn’t as interested – Charlie licked it all off – which is good for me to remember for later on, if I have trouble with getting him to eat.
It was fun to see them licking something from that perspective and hopefully provided you with a few smiles as well.
Know a friend who might like to do it with theirs? Please share it and see if they’re game.

Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
I was given Inaba Churu by a vet as a sample. My cats go nuts over it. I have 2 Raggies. When I open a tube their tongues compete on my finger to lick it.
One of my raggies had a problem with diarrhea and quit eating. I have mixed 1/2 tube of Churu, a 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin and a packet of their regular wet cat food. Stirred it up on a plate and she ate it all down to the picture on the plate. I has helped her get food in her and the pumpkin in her stomach for some fiber. I also mixed a small scoop of probiotic powder with her evening meal. It appears at this time she is gradually coming out of her diarrhea issue. The Inaba Churu Chicken & Tuna tubes have been a great help in getting her to eat again. It is NOT a meal, it is only a treat or topper to get her to eat.
Thank you for sharing!
