Pros: Cats love the flavor.

Cons: Could have more nutritional value.

The Bottom Line: These are nice for an occasional treat for an adult cat.

We all like to have a nice treat every now and then and are true for even or four legged family members.  We have tried a number of different brands and flavors, but our cats prefer Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor.  The chicken flavored cat treats are a nice way to show a little love outside besides the rub down or catnip.  These treats can be found at any grocery store and will cost around $2.  Each flavor has a different colored packaging in which this particular one is featured in deep lavender.  The front of the packaging includes a satisfied cat being pet by the assumed owner.  This "tender moment" is featured in a heart shape border.  The bag has a gold strip running along with the bottom of it in which the flavor is listed.  Each package has a resealable zip lock bag and contains 3 ounces of the special treat.

Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor are intended for adult cats.

Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor comes in three shapes:  a heart, fish, and a food bowl.  The shapes are fun I suppose but I don't really think my cats care about that.  Each is about the size of a dime and is accurately demonstrated on the front packaging.  I have not actually counted the pieces but I would estimate that there are approximately 120-150 pieces in each bag.

When first opening the package, the scent of the Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor is very strong.  I would say that it smells as though you have a mixture of pork bacon and chicken.  As far as cat treats go, it does smell better than most, although I am far from being willing to try one myself. (Yuck!)  My cats go crazy for these treats and come running the minute they hear the bag shake.  These soft morsels are definitely at the top of their list.

The Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor doesn’t include extra vitamins or have much nutritional value in them so we do try and limit their intake to a minimum.  Both of our cats are healthy and eat a highly nutritional cat food so we don't really worry about the 2-4 treats they receive in a week.  One of our cats is a bit prone to urinary tract infections and has not shown any additional problems and the vet did not seem concerned about these special treats.  As this is not their primary food source and should not be treated as such, these few pieces are not really causing any harm to them. 

Their are more nutritional brands on the market than the Whisker Lickins Tender Moments Soft & Delicious Cat Treats Chicken Flavor but our cats truly prefer this one so we give them the few moments of indulgence without putting their health in risk.  I would avoid a daily usage and give these treats a few times a week to prevent them from filling up on these rather than eating their usual meal foods.  If you are looking for a product to provide as training reinforcement, I would use a brand that is healthier and would recommend talking to the vet first.  I would consider these treats to be equivalent to a candy bar for adults.

Purina also offers a version of these snacks in which they are crunchy and provide tarter control.
