I like to give my cats treats every night, and they are naturally fans of this ritual, whatever form the treats take. Without doubt though Felix goodybag is their favourite. They do go crazy for them, and as I like to feed them one at a time they hurriedly crunch them up so they can get another one before their sister gets one!
The treats are smaller than the pocket-style treats such as Whiskas temptations, and they are all different shapes and sizes, not sure if this adds to their enjoyment but it seems like it does. Strangely enough, despite being smaller, I do notice that the cats do usually crunch these up rather than swallowing them whole as is the tendency with others, possibly this is due to the shapes adding that slight element of challenge. They are also slightly different colours, all adding to the 'goodybag' feel. Shapes include lattice squares, ribs, twiglet-type shapes and stars. In terms of flavour, it doesn't say on the packet but they are meaty smells/flavours, and again I suspect there is a variety of flavours in there. The treats have a significant crunch to them, so cats' teeth get a good workout with these treats too.
The pack itself is a plastic pouch which has an easy-to-tear off strip across the top keeping it fresh, and beneath that a resealable feature seal. The contents are only 60g (compared to temptations 100g) but in the shops, the cost of the two are usually comparable. On the packet it advises you can feed up to 40 pieces per day, which is lovely as you feel you are giving the cat a significant treat. Look out for these on offer in the supermarket, and give your cats a treat!
I have 2 cats who are treated as part of the family and spoilt rotten, they always have a stocking at Christmas and its usually filled with edible treats, their favourites are ones with soft centres like Whiskers Temptations but my older girl Daisy, she's nearly 8, does get a bit of an upset tummy and is very windy if she has too many and theres nothing worse than a cat with wind! . My younger cat Layla who is nearly 4 can eat anything but its hard giving one cat something and not the other. In their stocking last Christmas they had several packets of Felix Goody Bags, they are not soft centred but are still described as treats, since then I have continued to buy Felix Goody Bags for them and recently tried the Mixed Grill Goody Bag
The packaging is basically a foil pouch, similar to meat pouches. The front of the packet shows a picture of the cute little black and white Felix cat along with the Felix logo. The front of the packet also informs the customer that the Mixed Grill mix is flavoured with beef, chicken and salmon, the treats also contain vitamins, proteins and omega 6. The pouch shows pictures of the treats which are done in various shapes such as stars, squares and fish, not that this makes any difference to the cats!
The back of the pouch gives a small paragraph about the goody bag, a feeding guide and a long list of ingredients and nutritional values. There is also a token on the back for those who collect them, these can be redeemed forvarious products showing the Felix cat at www.worldoffelix.com.
The feeding guide states that no more than 40 pieces should be given to your cat in one day, my girls get nowhere near that amount, they have about 6 pieces at a time and not every day, I personally think 40 is far too many but its up to the individual.
The actual treats are various shades of brown and dont look anything special however to my girls they are very special, they love them. I swear they can hear me opening the bag when they are asleep, within seconds they are at my feet looking up expectantly. As cat treats go these dont smell too bad they have a strong meaty smell and nowhere as nasty as other treats they have tried.
Obviously I cant describe the taste of these but if Daisy and Layla could they would say they are delicious, they are eaten up in seconds and if I let them they would get through the whole packet in one sitting. Of course these are a treat so I do restrict them but the treats are good to use as a bribe to get my younger cat in at night, a quick shake of the packet at the back door has her running straight in.
All in all I definitely recommend Felix Goody Bags, they cost £1.19 in Tesco for a 60g pouch, my little fur buckets love them and best of all they don't give Daisy wind or an upset tummy which makes for a much better litter tray.
I have a four year old cat, Suki who has the same markings as the 'Felix' cat and I occasionally buy her some of these packets of treats. I had tried other types of treats on Suki with mixed results and was intrigued to spot this was Mixed Grill containing treats flavoured with Chicken, Beef and Salmon - which is unusual as packets of treats tend to be either all meat flavours or all fish flavours. The 60g pack has a very handy resealable top which keeps the treats fresh. The treats come in bite size pieces and best of all the pack doesn't contain any broken pieces or crumbs in the bottom (something other manufacturers could improve upon). According to the pack the treats contain proteins, vitamins and omega 6 fatty acids to promote a healthy diet for your cat. As for the taste of the treats, well Suki absolutely loves them and would cheerfully eat these all the time. I can even entice her in from outside by merely standing on the back doorstep and rattling the bag which results in her bounding up the path for her reward.
As some of you know I have a kitten called Henry. My best mate Melanie (xxfoxyredxx), has a kitten also called Myrtle. I am currently staying with my pal due to breaking my knee cap and dislocating it due to a fall. Poor old Mel has been left to looking after us all! I decided to buy both kitties these treats as they simply adore them.
The treats come in a bag that cxan be resealed once opened to keep the treats dry. Purina Goody bag mixed grill comes with three flavours Beef Salmon and Chicken. It contains all the essential
nutriaets that your cat needs. It is essential that you always make sure you have water available as the biscuits ten to make you cat thirsty.
The treats are the same size as shown on the packet (please see picture). They smell meaty with a hint of fish. Both Henry and Myrtle adore them, they are totally addicted to them. We get through packets of these in a week.
Available froma ll good supermarkets/ pet shops costing £1.50.
I have only recently had a breakthrough with my Kitten, four month old Myrtle! She is a really fussy eater at the best of times and prior to finding these Felix Goody bags and Dreamies she turned her nose up and lots of different treats I offered her and I was on the brink of giving up on the whole idea of treats till my very good friend tried her on a few of these but in a different flavour and after taking the complete Micky and downing well over half a bag belonging to my mates cat, Maizie I was left in conclusion that I needed to go out and buy her some asap!
Well they come in dark blue and red coloured plastic, oblong pouch which is silver foil inside and the bag is resealable due to a long press to secure strip at the top of the pouch. On the front of the pouch there is a cat shown licking its lips and we are told that they are Purina, Felix Goody Bag 'Mixed Grill', Flavoured with Beef, Chicken & Salmon' and that they are enriched with Vitamins, Minerals & Omega 6 and there's a picture of the biscuits shown all over the front of the pouch. On the back of the pouch other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and additives are fully listed, feeding advice is given, the size of the bag is stated which is 60g (and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Purina (the manufacturer) are given. This is a nice, colourful and well thought out pouch with lots of information on it and I love the resealable aspect of these so that they don't fall all over the place and stay fresh once I've opened them.
What you get in a bag is lots and lots of very small biscuits in a variety of small shapes such as fishes, stars, squares and in different colours too like dark red and dark and light brown. They feel slightly powdery to me and smell a little meaty and all in all they look really cute and i think they are a great handy size for kittens and cats alike.
The feeding guide on the back of the pouch tells me to give no more 40 pieces a day, that's quite alot and that's to an adult cat weighing up to 4kg so I tend to give Myrty about 20 pieces (if I can get away with it thought believe me with this flavour she doesn't half try pushing her luck lol).
Not only do they contain fish and meat derivatives they contain cereals which isn't listed on the ingredient list so I'n not sure what cereals these contain to be honest.They sound really crunchy as she eats them, Myrtle can deal with the small dainty size of them and although cats are not known to be greedy she is when it comes to these, she can't seem to get enough of em!
Full of vitamins, minerals and protein Myrtle really enjoys these and at a £1.29 a bag in all good supermarkets, pet shops and so on if you want to treat your cat but also give them something healthy at the same time I advise these very highly indeed to try. Before I found these new Felix Goody Bags I had nothing to give her which upset me a lot, now I'm thrilled that I have found these and I am sure she is too and this flavour she seems to really enjoy and thus far out of the Felix Goody bags on offer these seem to be her favourite!
