SHHHH! Don’t tell Charlie that we are talking about Whole Life treats. He can’t handle it and I will have a meowing kitty on my hands – much like this meowing Ragdoll cat. No matter if I say, “CHEATS!” or lift the bag from the top of the fridge – he comes running and meowing! I do keep them on top of the fridge or in the fridge so that they are not tampered with! When I wasn’t as wise, I found bags of Whole Life throughout the house – so I have to keep it out of his reach.
Whole Life Pet was kind enough to send us a bag of their beef treats to try out!
Whole Life is my favorite freeze dried cat treat. We have tried others. Others have made the kitties puke – all 4 – Caymus, Murphy, Charlie and Trigg has puked from other freeze dried cat treats. But not Whole Life. Here’s why (I think) – Whole Life does things a little differently; all of their products are tested twice for bacteria and all of their meats are precooked.
Safety is important to Whole Life: Every ingredient used is tested for harmful bacteria twice. Only then are they released to inventory. Whole Life tests for salmonella, E-Coli, Listeria and Staph.
Pre-cooked: Whole Life pre-cooks their meats to their proper temperatures, just as you would cook meat at home to ensure the health and safety of you, your pets and your family.
So with all that testing, you can imagine that Whole Life treats are little more pricey than other freeze dried pet treats. This is true! In fact, Floppycats reader, Jerri and I have discussed this extensively through email – that is how to go about getting Whole Life Pet Treats and a discount or finding Whole Life Pet Treats coupons.

Here’s our arrival video – notice the change in Charlie when I told him that we got “cheats” in the mail. In fact, when I was putting this blog post together and re-playing this video, you’ll never guess who showed up when he again heard “cheats” – IT’S DANGEROUS!:
However, you may have already seen this because we tried them before with Caymus and Murphy:
