Feline Greenies cat treats

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Anyone try these? Do your cats like them? I want to get a cat treat for my kitties for Christmas, but have a hard time finding ones with good ingredients. The gourmet treats are a little over my budget - $7.99 for a 1oz. sack is too much no matter what I'm making! I saw these on drugstore.com. Good ingredients, healthy. My Maisey has a delicate belly, so I have to watch what I give her. I found Meow Luv treats at Dollar Tree - good ing. and only $1 for a 2.8oz. sack. I bought them twice, but can't find em anymore. Anyone buy Feline Greenies?

I dont buy them since Zoey is allergic to wheat but the ingrediants have improved to where I call them decent

Bijou and Mika love them and I probably give them too many but Mika begs so prettily.

I give them to Zoe...it makes having her grooming done worth it for her!
She likes them alot but I only give her a couple at a time. I find them at Kroger or Petsmart too. Sounds like a great stocking stuffer!

Both mine seem to like the Greenies... of course, if it's a treat they love it! LOL

I ordered a free sample and when it came, my cats loved them soo much. I put them in a ziploc bag and accidentally left it on the counter, they managed to get up there and knock it on the floor, rip it open and eat every single treat while I was at work! Luckily it was a small sample package so they really didn't get much

I got a free sample skeptical my kitties would like them.....I found Twitch gumming(she has no teeth) the package trying to get to more!

These are Sadie's favorite treats. She'll do anything for them.
In Canada the price is now only $2.99 since they came out with the new formula.

For our jaded boys, only the Whiskas Temptations will do.

Of course, we mix rejected treats into their dry food and then they eat it. Because then it's not treats.

Go figure.

There have been some concerns posted online about "Greenies"....

On Itchmo.com forums 2 days ago, one individual reported "My kitty had a seizure this evening. The only change in her diet has been the recent addition of Feline Greenies. Her health was great prior to that. I decided to do a online search and found that Canine Greenies have caused seizures and are on recall lists. On one dog site, there was a note added that Feline Greenies appear to be causing seizures also. Still another site states they are "still recommending Feline Greenies.""

Another poster there suggested looking here http://www.sciencelab.com/xMSDS-Propyl_gallate-9924742
at one of the ingredients, and then making a decision for yourself.

Realize ITCHMO forums are a PUBLIC forum and NOT a scientific or a validated site

I have long known about the ingrediant but there are far worse that are more common

I like Greenies because they are only 2 calories each. My cat seems to like them also. Plus they are easy to find where I live.

My kitty loves them, especially the roasted chicken flavor.

That is strange - a cat treat linked to seizures?

Well I didn't end up getting them because I found out they're temporarily out of stock when I tried to order. I got a catnip toy for Maisey instead. We have to worry about those too now, because some of them are painted with lead paint. Geez, is anything safe anymore?! Somehow we all survived childhood before all these recalls, when I'm sure toys had lead. The cat toys tested only showed trace amounts and there has been no incidents yet, so I wonder why they're even telling us. We all have to die someday, anyway. We should hold off on China imports if everything from there is a problem, but our govt. is too cheap and reliant on Asia for producing almost everything we use. Sorry off my soapbox now, but I'm so tired of having to worry about everything we buy anymore.

I've given the greenies to my cat, they've caused no seizures in him. Just because the only change in the diet was the addition of Greenies, obviously does not mean that what the cause of the seizure actually was.

My Dharma will actually eat Greenies - first 'treat' I found that she actually likes. My boy Dante will race from the other end of the condo when he hears the bag rattle.

One must always be careful of what they read on the internet or anywhere else for that matter. Unless these were findings from a scientific study by reliable experts, I take them with a grain of salt.

my kitties LOVE them!!! even the hard to please ones,lol. They are now $2.99 a bag here in NY.
post #19 of 24
Mine like them, which is unusual because the only other thing they all like is Whiskas Temptations in the purple bag (dairy I think)

If I were you I wouldn't feed your cats Greenies because there the same as canine greenies, they contain plastic pieces which isn't exactly easy to digest. Just a lil' heads up if your cats start to vomit green clumps it's most likely to be greenies

BOTH have been reformulated and NEITHER have plastics... I would suggest you read this thread as it has pasted ingrediantshttp://thecatsite.com/forums/showthr...light=greenies
post #22 of 24
my cats LOVE these, treat time is the only time they all sit quietly next to each other and don't fight!

Obviously I've never had a problem with these, they're easy to find, even if they don't have the best ingredients they don't make up a significant % of their diet... I'll continue to buy them.
post #23 of 24
I just bought a bag of their tartar control tuna flavor and all of my kitties (except Spyder) seem to love them!
post #24 of 24
I don't think the cat treats every had plastics. They are a treat vs. a chew, which is what the dog ones are. Big difference.
