“ Brand: Felix / Food Type: Cat Food „
My cat, Harvey, is incredibly fussy when he comes to food. He certainly isn't the type of cat that walks across the kitchen worktops and picks at any food left out because he basically likes his cat biscuits and not a lot else. However, when I'm giving my dogs little doggie treats, I always feel a little guilty that Harvey misses out (the dogs usually end up eating his treats!) and so I have kept looking for treats which are acceptable to him and I think I may have found them in Felix Lickens Cat Treats.
These treats come in a small 50g bag, which is foil backed to keep the snacks fresh over a period of time. The bag is also resealable which not only helps to keep them fresh, but also helps to trap that catty smell inside the bag rather than into my cupboard. This 50g bag cost me 92p from Pets At Home which seems like pretty decent value.
The snacks themselves are small soft and squidgy biscuits which are just bigger than bitesize for my cat - although he eats it with no problem after playing with it for a while! The snacks are either chicken shaped or fish shaped - depending on whether you buy the chicken or the salmon flavour snacks. And yes, surprisingly, and much to my amazement, Harvey (the cat) really does like them. On the back of the pack it says you can give up to 11 snacks a day, but I tend to only give a couple of snacks a day because I want it to remain a treat rather than something he gets bored with.
The treats supposedly contain all natural products and so I am assuming that this means that its not bad for his diet. I haven't noticed any unpleasant side effects from giving Harvey these snacks (I have noticed that certain doggy snacks tend to make my dogs very "windy" (to put it nicely!) ) and so the absence of this is a blessing.
Overall, I would recommend these treats because if they're good enough for Harvey then they're good enough for any cat!
Santa was good to us all in our house this year, and this included my old feline. Her stocking was duly put out on Christmas eve night and would you believe it? Santa included her stocking when leaving gifts for us all.
One gift in my girl's stocking was the Felix "Lickin's" which is a variety of cat treat from those masters behind the 'Felix' branding, Purina. I could see quite clearly on the front of the packet that the Lickin's treats were a chicken flavour so I knew straight away that they would prove to be a popular choice with my girl as that is her favourite flavour of anything.
As I had opened my box of chocolates to sample one (or two) it seemed only fair that my girl got to sample her treats.... It was Christmas morning, after all! The package proved an easy-to-open affair, and I pretty much only had to tear the top of the plastic and foil combo package to get into it. I could see that it would be easy to re-seal as there is one of those pop zipper closures along the top of the pack.
The smell immediately hit my nostrils and I think these are extremely strong smelling cat treats, although to be fair I think most cat treats are quite strong. The cat immediately showed signs of interest after getting a whiff!
The Felix Lickin's are quite large in shape, and are basically a small, chew like treat in the shape of a chicken. They are a light brown colour and are quite attractive looking, as cat treats go! I could tell straight away that they were too big for my old girl to manage by herself (she has only a couple of teeth due to her old age, lol) and so I set about halving one in two, which was very easy to do given the soft gummy-like texture of the treats.
The treats were easily chewed by my girl too, such was the softer-than-usual texture of the Lickin's. I find most cat treats available on the market are more like a hard treat, similar to a biscuit or something and these can prove to be too much for my old girl's (lack of) teeth, and are difficult to half in two into the bargain! I was pleased that these little gems were proving to be a much easier option all round.
Going by the way my girl followed me into the kitchen when I put the packet away, I think it is safe to say that the Licking's are a hit with her too! I have actually known her to come running into the kitchen if I shake the bag up, such is her passion for these little treats.
I will not pretend to know what the treats taste like, as much as I am committed to the Dooyoo community, I would rather not taste a feline foodstuff thank you very much! Instead, I can tell you that the Felix 'Lickin's' are "slow baked for that extra yummy taste" according to the back of the pack. And going by my old girl's reaction, I can't really argue to much with that!
I will buy them again as an occasional treat for my girl. This should prove easy enough to achieve given that I have seen the Felix Lickin's on sale in supermarkets such as Tesco, as well as in my local independent pet store. The pack contains 50g and this costs under £1 so I think it is fairly reasonable value, especially for my old girl as she only really gets one or two of the treats at a time.
I like the fact the Felix Lickin's are in a resealable pouch to help them maintain their freshness too, and I feel that other brands of catty treats should take this on board and follow suit! I am fed up with packs of cat biscuits and treats spilling all over the cupboard due to insufficient wrappers or packaging so the Felix Lickin's get full marks for this point too.
Overall me (and of course my old girl) were impressed enough with the Felix Lickin's to write a review about the treats so that they could be recommended to feline owners everywhere! These cat treats get a full five Dooyoo stars from me (and her)!
With only having the one cat now (we did have three at one time) we thought we would get him some treats as he seems a bit down at the moment, probaly due to all the noise from the fireworks bonfires ect...
Having said that I must say that it has been a much quieter year than usual from all the bangs ect.. thank goodness!
He is getting on a bit, around 10 years old and I think the cold weather isn't to good for his bones, like all of us. It was time to get him a treat, so what could we get him, he doesn't respond to toys, he looks at us like we have gone senile when we try and wave things in front of him. So after hunting about we saw these Felix Lickins, we know that he likes some of the felix products so we should be alright with these.
Quite a reasonable price at only 57p for a pouch that weighs 50g, well I thought that these will not last long, but have been proven wrong as we still have some left a few weeks later.
These come in a foil oblong pouch, with the naughty Felix cat on the front. It has a tear line on the top and if you do it carefully you will then be able to reseal it, as it has a resealable strip. This is handy as it keeps them really fresh, as I think that they could go stale and soft really quick if not.
Once opened and you take a sniff in the pouch you will be met with the smell of dog biscuit type smell ( if you have a dog you will know what I mean!). If you pour a couple into your hand you will see that they resemble the shape of tiny chickens, this is because they are supposed to be chicken flavour. I say supposed as unless I try one I can't say as they don't smell of chicken. I've tried a lot of things for DooYoo but I draw the line at eating cat treats!!
So taking their word for it I grab hold of one and call the cat over he wanders overs at his own speed, we always say that he has a John Wayne walk as he slowly swaggers over as if to say what now!
Well when he got closer he must have been able to smell something that I couldn't as he got quicker almost into a trot. He took the treat from the palm of my hand and for the first time in ages he seemed very excited and interested in what I had in my hand. As I got out a couple more He took them very willingly and waited for more. He had a couple more and that was it, he wasn't too pleased when I closed the pouch up, so he just slumbered off and went to sleep.
These are very small, about the size of a finger nail and have a firm, but slightly soft texture so not to hard for a cat to chew. These are to be used as a treat or reward only not as part of their food as they are a complementary pet food. You can give your cat up to 11 pieces a day and must make sure that there is a bowl of clean water about for them to drink if needed.
Incase anyone is interested the typical analysis is;
So if your pussy is feeling low then apart from a cuddle get them some Felix Lickins I'm sure these will cheer them up, it certainly done the trick for my one!!
5 stars for being a great treat for my cat!!
I have two boisterous bengal boy cats and I try and keep their food and treats varied, mainly because no sooner have I found something they enjoy they get bored of it.
I decided to try Felix Licken's cat treats, mainly as they were something new. The pack is around 50g which is resealable so that you can keep them fresh. I purchased my packet in Asda, but I have seen them all around in pet shops and supermarkets alike.
Each treat contains 30% protein, 10% fat, 0.7% fibre and 22% moisture. These are "treats" and not to be used as a food substitute and they have a maximum daily allowance of 11 per cat. I tend to only give mine a few at a time, and never every day otherwise they loose the "treat"ness (if thats a semi-word!).
The treats are shaped like little chickens, which I suspect is more for the owner's benefit as, lets face it, the cats arent fussed about what they look like, the taste is what is the big thing! And, speaking for my cats and not as someone who has tried them (!) I can say the taste is brilliant. The boys love these treats, and I have to hide the packet in a drawer as if they see it they go nuts.
And, surprisingly, months after I bought the first packet, they have the same reaction as the first time, which shows the sign of a good cat treat, well as far as my boys are concerned!
I would highly recommend this treat for your well loved and best behaved cats :o)
As the owner of two adorable cats that are my furry babies I like to spoil them with toys and treats, they are both quite keen on tuna and fresh chicken (in moderation!) but on a trip to Sainsburys a couple of years ago now to buy some cat food I purchased these to see if they would eat them being chicken flavoured.
The treats come in a 50g bag which is resealable to keep them fresh, I brought a new packet just yesterday from Pets At Home and the expiry date is March 2010.
Each treat contains 30% protein, 10% fat, 0.7% fibre and 22% moisture.
The maximum daily allowance is 11 per cat but I only give my two cats about five or six per day and not on a daily basis.
Each treat is about the size of a five pence piece and in the shape of a chicken!
Now as I am not a cat (although I do love to nap) I haven't tried eating one of these so we will just have to trust Felix on whether it does actually taste like chicken, I am afraid even for my beloved Dooyoo I won't be eating one!
They do have the smell of a processed meat product though and the texture is quite soft and crumbly so they would be easy for your cat to chew.
Izzy has just walked in on me writing this review as she has heard me rustling with the packet and has just demonstrated that the name is correct, she licked the treat out of my hand into her mouth before chewing and as she loves them so much she does recognise the sound of the packet and always comes running when she hears them.
She is quite fussy when it comes to food even turning her nose up at the Tesco Finest Tuna Cat Food so this must have something good about them!
My other cat Spencer will eat them but normally only one or two at a time and hes not excited when he hears the bag rustle.
For 85p this bag will last you a few weeks so its a good value treat for your cat and Izzy has not gone off them in the few years she has had them.
The product is available at most supermarkets and pet shops.
These are one of my cat's favourite treats. The packaging is stylish and eye-catching, I love the paw design at the top... and most of all my cat loves the taste. He spends a long time in the garden hiding or sleeping, and one of the only ways to get him back in at night is to rattle the packet outside the door for him! They are soft treats, and so don't make much noise, but he likes them so much that his ears are obviously fine tuned to hear them. I only ever give him one or two at a time, and he just adores the taste. He makes the most lovely talking/purring noises as I open the packet, and needless to say he wolfs them down. Another fabulous treat to buy your kitty is 'Pounce', but I am only able to find that in America - my cat adores Pounce even more, so I buy several packs if I ever go over on holiday.
I recently got a new kitten and was looking for some treats that would be suitable for a kitten under 6 months old. Unfortunately the packet didnt say if they were or not but i decided that they couldnt do much harm and so brought a packet.
The packaging is attractive, blue in the shape of a paw with the felix cat on, aswell as cartoons of what the treats look like. I paticularly like the fact that the treats are shaped as chickens, although i suspect the cats dont really care what shape they are, its nice for us humans out there. They are light fawny colour and smell of quite strange, not really of chicken but of a general meaty smell. They are about 1.5cm x 2cm in size.
when i first offered by kitten one he wasnt very interested at all. He looked at it, licked it and then ran off. I put this down to his age and so tried again a few hours later, breaking it into small pieces. He was then more willing to try it and spent a while chewing at it, leaving a few bits which i again thought was because he was so small.
Now a few weeks later whenever i shake his treat tin he comes running and he wolfs down these little treats. He only gets a couple a day though as I think they are quite rich and the packet recommends no more than a few a day.
However due to my experience with them i would not recommend them to cats that are under the age of 12 weeks old.
Felix Lickens cat treats are fabulous little rewards for the feline in your life. My Siamese thoroughly adore these little chicken flavoured, and indeed chicken shaped, treats.
The top of the packet, which imitates the shape of a cat's paw, tears away and inside you will find a re-sealable strip. This enables the treats inside to stay perfectly fresh and stored away ready for your cat's next reward.
As soon as I open the packaging the smell of chicken draws both of my cats' attention and they begin mewing for their treats, which are gobbled up the very moment they reach the dish!
Felix Lickens are very reasonably priced. To give an idea of cost Tesco currently stock this product as just 47p per pack. This will not make a dent in your shopping budget and is therefore ideal as an occasional surprise for your cat.
My cats fully recommend them!
I have tried many cat treats on my 2 cats, trust me they are very fussy! However, i bought these a few weeks ago, and my cats adore them, whenever they see me get them out they go mad, and ive never seen them so excited.
These are particularly good if you are trying to train your cats, as for my cats they will sit, and be good, just to get a treat, it very funny to watch.
These are pretty cheap, you can pick them up for about 60p-£1 and theres about 30 treats inside. So last me about a month with 2 cats.
The other good thing, is that they dont stink to much, as ive had treats in the past that have had a horrible smell to them, and its been hard to get it off my hands.
Overall i throughly recommend these felix treats, my two fussy eaters love them, and thats a miracle and so far they havent gone of them! If you love your cat, then i'd try them on these.
As you must all know by now we have been adopted by a handsome cat called Mew - well that's what he said when we asked him what his name was anyway!
Once he had officially moved in with us my sister sent him a present. It was all wrapped up in a jiffy bag and addressed to Mew complete with a 'welcome to you new home' card! She's as mad as I am!
In the parcel were a couple of little balls, very useful as Mew had already been separated from his, and a couple of packets of cat treats.
One of the packets was Felix Lickins Chicken which currently cost 64p for a 50g packet in our local Asda store.
The packet is about four inches wide by about six inches and the top is shaped like a cat's paw with four little white 'pads'. The wording across the top of the packet is 'Purina Felix Lickins chicken flavour' and then 'delicious chewy treats' across the bottom.
To get at the treats you just have to tear off a piece across the top of the packet and there is a resealable strip just below this. Some of these are really fiddly to use but not this one. It opens easily and reseals quickly and efficiently keeping the remaining treats nice and fresh for Mew.
The feeding instructions explain that up to eleven of the treats can be given ay any time of the day - I assume this to mean that you should give your cat no more than eleven pieces in any one day.
As soon as they arrived I fetched one out of the packet to see what Mew thought of them. The treats are shaped like little chickens and are about the size of a new penny and are about ¼ of an inch thick.
I offered one to Mew and he was very impressed! He loved it and waited for more.
We tend to use the treats when we have been out for a while and he hasn't had anyone to make a fuss of him. I also try and brush him on a regular basis as he is quite a long haired cat and I always give him a treat after he has been brushed so that (hopefully) he will continue to let me brush him. Bribery works wonders!
The treats contain meat and animal derivatives, cereals, vegetable protein extracts, oils and fats, minerals, fish and fish derivatives and various sugars. They also contain EC permitted additives, colourants, antioxidants and preservatives. The analysis of the ingredients is protein 30%, fat 10%, fibre 0.7%, ash 5% and moisture 22% so what the remaining 32.3% is heaven only knows!
Mew has long since finished his first packet and we have bought him some more since he likes them so much.
I have just fetched the packet out of the cupboard to check some of the details and I tried to be as quiet as possible but the slight rustle attracted Mew's attention right away! He's no fool - he knows what he likes and he knows how to look cute enough to get it!
