Party Mix and Vita Treats: Yay or Nay?

When my friend and her son came to visit me from Singapore last month...

They brought along with them some treats for the kitties.

One was Friskies' Party Mix and the other was Cat Lover's Vita Treats.

Bronzy was not interested in the snacks at all because she had over-eaten at lunch.
But Slash was quite keen to give the treats a taste test.

So I obliged him.
I tore open the packet of Vita Treats first and took out one heart-shaped biscuit.
Slash took his time to sniff suspiciously at the treat.

This is not at all unusual.
He does this with his regular food with each and every mouthful, I kid you not!

After sniffing for a long while, Slash decided that he didn't like this new treat...

And walked away.
(By the way, Slash's behind is wet because he made a messy poop and had to be washed.)

So I tore open the Party Mix and let him have a sniff at that...
And he loved it.

He wasted no time at all in gobbling it up...

And chowing it down.

I then went back to Vita Treats and offered Slash another sniff.
"Give it a chance," I told him.

But all Slash did was to give me a look that said, "Give it up, woman."
So it's back to the Party Mix.
And it is here that I'll take a moment to show you how neurotic Slash is.

Step 1: Sniff

Step 2: Eat

Then it's back to Step 1 again: Sniff

Step 2: Eat

You get the idea.

Slash eats as though he is sure someone is out to poison him.

That's why it takes him 5 times as long to finish his food compared to Bronzy.
Anyway, I digress...

So what's your verdict after the taste test, Slash?

"It's a yummy yay to Party Mix. And a nasty nay to Vita Treats."

Do you kitties agree with Slash?

Well that sounds interesting. I have never had either!

Truffle and Brulee will pretty much eat any treats! They've recently tried freeze dried chicken and shrimp treats and I have to hide the bag from them.

Hi Slash! We've never had the Vita Treats, but we agree that the Party Mix is yummy, indeed. :)

Sparkle said...

Well, of course - the Vita Treats said right on the package they were "healthy" which means that technically that is NOT a treat! Since when are treats supposed to be good for you?

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

Our kitties haven't had either, but we're sure the Sphynx would gobble anything up that wouldn't eat them first!

Oh Bast, we thought you both had exchanged heads in that 2nd picture! Whew!

Au and Target said...

We are the same! It's partially native caution but it's also nice to see how long the survunt will sit on the floor, holding our treats :-)

Oh Slashy, we missed you buddy. Love seeing these pictures of you. Glad you decided on the Party Mix!

That was very nice of them to come with delicious treats. Party mix is the way to go we guess. Love seeing the sniff then bite, then sniff again and bite. It must take a long time to get one down. We love the beautiful photos. Thanks for the share. Have a great rest of your day.
