  1. I like that these products are made with human grade ingredients, that gives a pet parent peace of mind. I don’t have cats but I’m happy to learn about these companies, I know most or all of them make dog treats & food too. Thanks for the info!
    Love & biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  2. This is so timely! I’ve been looking for treats for Noodle that are all natural and healthy besides HK’s fish ones, which she hates. She’s just not a seafood kind of girl! I didn’t know Dr. Harvey made cat treats!

    1. Thanks. Yes, there are healthy and motivating cat treats out there, we just have to find them. 🙂

  3. I’m very careful about what I feed my pets, and constantly read ingredients to see what’s in them. Relying on the packaging alone is too misleading. They all look wonderful, and prefer as few ingredients as possible. Thanks for calling attention to these products.

  4. Most of these we can’t get here in New Zealand, but it is hitting home how much more natural treats are becoming. There is a focus on the health and well being of our cats and this is a good thing. Less focus on profit, more on the welfare of our animals.

    1. Oh, that’s a shame. I would venture to guess you have some one ingredient brands in New Zealand. I know you have some healthy meat over there!

  5. These look like awesome healthy cat treats being made by some of our favorite dog food/treat companies. You have just given me some great ideas for holiday gifts for my friends with cats!

    1. Oh, but they are 100% meat, so low calories and you can easily incorporate into daily calorie allotment since cats need at least a 90% meat diet.

  6. These are great treats! My kitties haven’t tried all of them, but I know there are a couple they love listed here. What cat doesn’t love meat? 🙂 High-quality meat really is the best for kitties.

  7. I’m glad that there are great treat choices for cats too! I always try to give some dog treats to the rescue, I’ll have to consider adding some cat ones too.
