Chewy.com Review: Zuke's Natural Purrz Treats


Hey everybody, it's Truffles! I have to tell you that when we received this month's Chewy.com blogger outreach newsletter it left Mommy and I a bit disgruntled. It was titled "Fall Yummies" and featured some super cute teddy bear shaped organic pumpkin treats...for dogs. When are the pet food companies going to start making more fun options for us kitties? Don't they think that we like to celebrate special times of the year too? I'll step off my soapbox now but do you agree with me, friends?

Moving on to my review: Several months ago I received a package of Zuke's G-Zees Savory Salmon Treats in a MeowBox and I didn't care for them at all. Mommy figured it was because I'm not a big fish fan, so from October's offerings she picked out the Zuke's Natural Purrz Tender Chicken Recipe Cat Treats for me.

Here's a little more about them:

Natural Purrz are the perfect way to keep your cat purring. These soft, delicious treats are packed with USDA chicken or salmon, a whole-food source of omega 3 fish oil. Feed nutritious Natural Purrz and show your cat the love.

Features & Benefits:

* Real meat and fish are 1st ingredients: high-quality, clean and healthy protein sources

* Natural cranberries: support urinary tract health

* Highly palatable: cats love ‘em!

* ‘Z’ shape: cats prefer food and treats with angles and edges. (Mommy thinks the Z-shaped treats are cute. She's silly that way.)

Ingredients: Chicken, Ground Rice, Ground Barley, Malted Barley, Gelatin, Vegetable Glycerin, Tapioca, Brewers Yeast, Natural Flavors, Fish Oil, Lecithin, Salt, Phosphoric Acid, Sorbic Acid, Mixed Tocopherols, Ascorbic Acid.


What did I think? I *liked* them...certainly more than the salmon treats...but I wasn't *crazy* about them. I'll eat a few at a time and then that's enough. (Generally with treats I have no self-control and won't stop eating until Mommy forces me to!) So I sought a second opinion from my neighbor kitty Pumpkin who likes to visit my house daily for a snack. He LOVED them! So I guess I'll say that these treats get two paws up from me, and four paws up from him :)

Chewy.com has more than 300 brands to choose from and will ship directly to your door with fast 1-2 day delivery. They have something that every kitty and doggie will find to enjoy.

Disclosure: We received a free package of treats for review; all opinions are our own.

  1. We've tried those treats before too and weren't super crazy about them. BUT... we are big fans of Chewy.com. We buy all of our food and litter from them. We're going to owe our UPS man a REALLY nice Christmas gift.

  3. We agree about the fun treats for us kitties...pet food makers better get busy! We haven't tried those treats but we have tried some other Zuke treats in the past. Just like you...we liked them but didn't love them. Thanks for the good review.

  5. We are glad you liked the treats, Truffles. We didn't even try them. We took a sniff at them and then walked away. MOL. We are a bit picky about our treats here.

  8. Those treats sound yummy. We all have different treats that we like here too. What one of us absolutely LOVES the other might just "like" them.

  9. I’m glad Chewy hasn’t screwed you over yet. I don’t like soft treats—none of them. I won some from another brand a few weeks ago and chose salmon. TW doesn’t know whether to open them or save them for Secret Santa.
