Guest Post Review by MeLinda Hughes of Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll Rescue
Thrill’s 100% freeze-dried treats come in four different flavors: Shrimp, Tuna, Chicken, and White Fish. Each one is 100% protein (71 to 83% protein). They are freeze-dried so there are no preservatives. These treats are an excellent form of protein and are great for cats that are on a high protein, grain-free diet or even a limited ingredient diet. In addition to feeding them as treats, I often crumble them on the top of canned food as a food topper, especially when I have a finicky eater. My cats are extremely picky about their treats and will only eat freeze-dried treats.
I decided to do a “scientific” taste test on three of my cats: Gryffin, my red Maine Coon, was completely not interested in any of the four flavors and left without placing his vote. Roanoke, my Chocolate Mitted Ragdoll, liked all four. He started for the chicken, but quickly went to the tuna. He ate every piece of the tuna and even licked the table before moving back to the chicken. He ate every piece of the
chicken and again licked the table. The White Fish was next, before he went to eat the shrimp. This was the order, so it might have been a choice of opportunity rather than taste, but he kept going back to the tuna and the chicken. His least favorite was the shrimp, which is also the most expensive, and he didn’t even finish it. Our third volunteer, Tam, my other red Maine Coon, ate only the chicken and the White Fish. He was not interested in any of the other flavors.
These treats come in a nice re-sealable canister. I purchased them from our regular pet food retailer at www.wag.com. They are a bit expensive for the amounts. The Chicken is $5.49 for .88 ounces; the Tuna is $5.49 for .88 ounces; the White Fish was $5.49 for .53 ounces; the Shrimp is the most expensive of the four at $6.49 at .70 ounces. All four of the treats do crumble easily, but they actually do well in that form as a food topper. The Shrimp is by far the most crumbly, and I would probably only use it as a topper. I do highly recommend these treats, though I will probably go back to our other freeze-dried treats, which are a bit less expensive.
