Feline Greenies

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I ordered some sample snacks for yasmine...i opened them and when she heard the bag she went crazy so i was excited and threw one to her. Her picky butt sniffed it and looked at me like i was crazy! So i tried another flavor...same thing..finally she just laid down and stared at me...so i gave in and gave her the normal treats. She was happy after that!!! LOL

Oh gee.. I have some coming and I bet I have an exact repeat of what you just did. My little darling is extremely picky about treats too. Greenies are hard treats, right? I'm half way thinking about eating one myself in front of him and giving one to the dog. Then I'll "accidently" leave one out so he can think he is getting something he shouldn't have and eat it. Getting them to try it is half the battle.

Sorry guys - never hear of one cat that liked the stuff and I know many that tried it!!

Cassie looooooooves greenies, Napoleon does not. However, I wanted to address your thinking its something bad, so it must be yummy psychology!! I wish I had seen that before...I bought these $10 "gourmet" treats which are real freeze-dried food treats...neither cat wanted anything to do with it. Napoleon thought it was a hockey puck LOL Good to know I should try something like that.

mine haven't arrived yet, but i'll post results when they do. i can tell you now that Pixel probably won't want them, because she likes very few snax...but currently Cable & Java eat anything i put down. Java even wanted one of my cheese nips yesterday. she ate one, but didn't want any more

Yes they are hard treats...and green lol and kinda big, not small bite size. I even broke it in half to see if she would eat it- but she wasnt gonna touch it with a 10 ft pole! I believe i ordered samples on the internet...and i got like 5 sample bags..one of each flavor. oh well...

Napolean loves his greenies! *sniff* but he isn't allowed any treats anymore because of his allergy issues. He loves greenies and he loves the stinky smelly IVD Feline Treats [[I think he likes the IVD ones because they wreak so bad.]]

PB loves his greenies! i buy the sample bags for 99 cents at petsmart-- he LOVES all the flavors. He comes running when he hearsme open my desk drawer begging for one. Hubby says PB is worse than pavlov's dog! LOL

If anyone doenst want their greenies and would like to part with them, pm me and maybe we can work something out. As I dont get to go to petsmart but maybe once every 3-4 months.

Both of mine love those little greenies treats. I only buy the little sample packs though, bc they are kind of expensive. It's a nice change from their cheaper regular treats every once in a while.

My both cats love the Greenies, even my one who doesn't usually like treats. I paid 69 cents for the sample bags at my feed store.

I'm still waiting for my free sample to arrive in the mail.

Seamus and Gator go crazy for the green treats, especially the liver flavor. I've never seen Seamus food motivated before I gave him these.

My cats both love the Greenies, though big fatty Oliver would eat just about anything. The trick with mine is I have to throw it to them--if they see it flying through the air and skidding across the floor they're interested, if I just place it in front of them, it's not as fun, I guess!

Actually Lola is into Feline Greenies.

Both Buffy and Willow love their greenies. At first, neither would touch them ("Those aren't treats, those are ROCKS!") but after 5 minutes Willow sampled one and then wolfed it down, begging for more. It took Buffy 24 hours to finally decide to sample one, but then she was converted too. Now they both love them. Their favorite flavour so far is the Salmon flavour (unfortunately, Jake, my dog, got into the treats and wolfed down everything in the salmon package). 2nd favorite is Ocean Fish, and they're "okay" with Liver. They still have the Chicken to try, but I'm sure they'll like it.

I bought a sample bag and even the cat who normally don't go for treats were fighting over them. So I ordered 24 of the 3 oz bags online from a wholesale place. They already know the sound of a greenie bag opening (rather than another treat bag) and come RUNNING!!

Yup - mine love all 4 flavors.

I have never heard of the brand before, don't think they have it here in Singapore. Anyhow, did Yasmine like them?

Didnt at first but tonight she ate them as i alternated her other treats!
post #21 of 25
Lol... perhaps she'll develop a taste for it after trying. If you just give the greenies to her without alternating, will she eat them?

All our cats go crazy over them - even Felixia, who's very picky about what she'll eat.

Abby LOVES them. I have never seen her go as crazy for treats as she does for these. I did just get a pet catalog in that has them MUCH cheaper. Looks like I will be ordering a case!

Thanks Have you posted pics of your pretty girl in the tuxedo pictures thread? If you like black & white cats, there are lots of good photos there.

*hmm, posted a link but it didn't work. Hopefully this one will.
