Our cat gets more enjoyment out of a rubber band they she will get out of a nice treat. Who says that all cats will come running when you rattle a bag of treats. We have tried to adopted two cats and if we are having trouble trying to find cat treats that they will eat, we want to give them different kinds of treats from time to time so they don't get bored with them. We ended up only adopting one cat,, because the others for some unknown reason did not get along. This treat from Friskies is developed and dispersed by the Purina company and comes with vitamins and minerals packed into a small crunchy chewable treat. But, how do you get lucky enough to purchase one that you know that your cat will like. There lies the problem, you have to spend to find some tasty treat that your picky cat will like. These could be the best treat in the world for one cat and be free, but if your cat does not like it then they are worth less to us.

Thank heavens that we have a few dogs that act like garbage disposals and will everything in sight even their own feces. Our dogs will eat anything again and again, and every time that we have another failure, the dogs are the beneficiary of this. So, if we fail at a certain treat then at least the dogs are happy. You can find this treat at Meijer's or pet supply store for $1.99 for a 2.1 ounce reseal able bag, Friskies party mix is a cheesy craze crunch flavored snack, and is produced by the Friskies Pet Products division of the Nestle Purina company. This should only be used as a snack and not the main source of their diet. This product is made in Switzerland but the packaging is made in the USA.

Ingredients

Guaranteed Analysis
This also has crude protein minimum of 26.0%, crude fat a minimum of 9.0%, crude fiber maximum of 4.0%, and maximum moisture of 11%.

Description and Experience
This product is basically does not smell too bad for animals, as for humans this does not smell to bad at all. This smells like a mild cheese and does not smell anything like beef. But, hey, who am I to say what smells good. This has four types of shapes and one is the shape of a square with four holes in it called crackers, then there is one the shape of a crunch twist, the next is in the shape of a wedge and has three holes in it called wedgers, the last one is in the shape of a star with a hole in the middle called star bites.. All of these pieces of treats are also made of a solid color, these are dark brown and are all crunchy bites. These are hard to start with, and when you try to squeeze them, they can break up into smaller pieces when you apply pressure, these on average are also about ½" in diameter.

Just like us, you are taking a chance when you buy a treat for your cat. Unlike a dog, where they will eat anything, cats are very finicky, and of course our cat or no different. It is hit or miss when it comes to treats, even if you ask for help from the store employee. In this case I don't think that our cat realizes that these are actually treats, but our dogs don't care and don't know that these are cat treats, they just gobble them up if we offer them a treat. These come in a 2.1 ounce reseal able plastic bag that can be recycled to help the environment.

Conclusion
In our case, we are stuck with some new so called cat/dog dog treats, so we make sure that we only purchase small samples ,3 ounces or less. So, we continue on our adventure, to try and find which treat will make our cat go crazy when you open up the package. This time we thought at first our cat liked this treat, because she sniffed and the other ones she won't even touch it. No matter what the companies make the packaging or television ads look or the product smell like, if you have a picky cat, then you will just have keep trying to find a treat that makes them happy.  These may make that cat in other households go crazy, but it does nothing for one of our cat. We can't even get our cat to follow the treat and do tricks for a bite.

 If we are lucky ,all we get from our calico is a weird look as if they were saying "What am I supposed to do with that?". The calico cat doesn't even eat them if we toss them into her food bowl, and not even if we try to use them as a treat or training treat. The only thing that our calico cat will do with these is smell them if that, we did get a lick and a very slow attachment to this treat this time. These do still make a good dog treat for training our dogs. The minute that our dogs hear the bag of treats rattle, they come running and beat the cat to the punch, and even though these don't smell like anything really special to our dogs, they still scarf these up. With any luck we will find a treat that both of our cat and dog will enjoy.
