Dreamies Cat Treats
Advantages: Cheap in price, cats appear to really love them!
Disadvantages: None really.
I like to give my cats the occasional treat every now and again and I'll always pick something up for them with my weekly shopping. A few months ago while I was browsing the cat food isle at Asda I saw these Dreamies cat treats and decided to give them a try. Good move on my part!
The packaging on these cat treats comes in the form of a rectangular plastic pouch with a resealable top to ensure the treats stay fresh. The colour of these pouches depends on the flavour of the treats. Cheese is yellow, chicken is orange, salmon is blue, beef is pink and duck is purple. All of the colours are very vibrant and 'in your face' which makes them hard to miss on the selves.
The packet consists of a cartoon style cat happily licking his lips whilst 'dreaming' about these treats. The thought bubble above the cat's head contains 'Dreamies' written in bold, bright and a sort of hand written font and style. Underneath that is a picture of the treat cut into half showing you the 'crunchy outside' and the 'soft inside'.
This picture is a little misleading as it makes the treats appear to be much bigger than they are. I wasn't expecting them to be so small when I first opened the packet!
The back of the packet contains all the usual information about ingredients and best before dates etc. It also says that each one of these treats contains 2 calories which is good as my cats can't get enough of these and I do try and keep them healthy.
A 60g pouch of these treats costs £1 from just about every supermarket. I've seen them in Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsburys and I'm sure they're available elsewhere as well, I just haven't been there to see.
The packet recommends a serving of eight treats per feeding occasion and, following this guideline, the packet contains over 30 servings so they'll last you a while. Given I have four cats and none of them will settle for just eight, my packets don't seem to last longer than three days though!
The treats themselves are square and are probably around 1cmx1cm, maybe a little less. They are quite small. I've broken one of these in half before just to see the 'soft inside'. I managed to do this easily and the outside didn't leave a bunch of crumbs when broken so rest assured your cats won't leave a giant mess when eating these. The treats really are soft centred, I'm assuming this is the bit my cats seem to love so much.
The treats have a typical cat biscuit sort of smell to them but it isn't very strong at all. If you stick your head in the packet and sniff then yes, you can clearly smell it but if you just place a few in your hand to feed your cat then you really can't smell anything at all. They don't leave any real smell lingering on your hands and fingers either which is nice.
For obviously reasons I am unable to get a written or spoken response from my cats as to what they think of this product but they do say actions speak louder then the words and my cats actions say 'these are the best treats we've ever had!'
Although just opening the packet doesn't create a strong enough smell for us humans to detect the cats certainly can. I open the packet and they come running from left, right and centre. One time my youngest cat actually left the mouse on the back garden he was hunting and ran straight through the back door into the kitchen all because I'd put a few of these treats down for one of my other cats and he wanted some as well!
I have to give them these treats in clear, separate piles as if they're too close together they'll start fighting each other for their piles. All four of my cats absolutely love these treats (the cheese ones especially) and they show me plenty of affection for giving them some. I'd highly recommend these treats and I'm sure your cats will love you for giving them a try!
Summary: By far my cats favourite treats, they can't enough. Well worth £1.
