Is it like giving them a bag of haribos? My girl wont touch dry food. Ive tried everything. Ive tried every brand. I just think while im at work it would be really handy if she'd have some dry food as i dont think wet food in a timer for 8 hours is ideal.

Treats however..... She goes mad for them. As long as they're in a cardboard box. She eats all kinds hard, soft, hard with soft middles. Have i turned her into a goody face like my nieces? Ive tried to pretend the dry food is a treat but she flatly refuses to chase it. Im exhausted what with the 4am ear plug removals she does. I wouldnt change her for the world but im totally at her beck and call.

Funnily she doesn't break into them or is bothered by them until they are in a cardboard box

Seniorboy dislikes them.

Try one. Report back

Oh god no I just wondered if they were full of crap like our sweets

3 out of 5 cats love them here.

1 will eat the cheese flavour only, but she eats them with the air of someone doing me a favour.

1 doesn't like any of them

The other 3 act as if I'm dealing crack cocaine and can't get enough of them.

I thought you meant for humans!
Ahem... may have bitten into a cat biscuit, maybe, possibly once.

It was fucking horrible.

As I have never come across a cat who doesn't like them I reckon they are the equivalent of a Mary Berry cake.....though with shit ingredients.

Do u think they affect their appetite? Why will she merrily eat them but not dry food?

Frusso Sat 08-Oct-16 13:47:16

I imagine they taste like Tuc biscuits.

feesh Sat 08-Oct-16 13:48:39

I reckon they taste like Scampi Fries. Mmmmmm Scampi fries.

On a more serious note, you should probably not give her any more Dreamies - sounds like they are putting her off her normal food

DS said the cheese ones taste like cheese footballs only nastier envy

Because cats are arseholes.
Mine will happily lick their own arses and each others but would rather have a bath than eat salmon tinned cat food.

Got some treats with added omega 3 for the princesses dry skin. However wiskars temptations were on 3 for two so got them instead of dreemies. I'm told they are almost identical but I suspect they will not be good enough for their Royal Highnesses. Just as the £12 spent on a supplement they wouldn't touch wasn't

I'm not even gonna start in the Glossy coat ones. I've just spent a fortune on a treat puzzle I thought that would entertain her whilst I'm out at work there's about twenty dreamies mixed with dried food still in it since Tuesday. She's not interested in actually having to work for them. My friend has to put hers on a silk pillow case and take them to her cat.

On another note dies my kitten have to eat dry food? She eats tinned food imported from somewhere exotic. My neighbour told me to buy cheap fillets from Tescos but I'm afraid if I go down that route that will be it.

DD says "pretty much like they smell but the texture is a bit odd, sort of rough on your tongue and the taste lingers for ages, the chicken ones are nicer than the cheese but anythings better than the fish ones"

She's such a pleasant child, apparently it's because I showed her Woof (where the boy eats a dog biscuit and turns into a dog) and she wondered if she'd turn into a cat. She's nearly 8.

As long as the tinned food is complete she doesn't need to eat dry food smile

We call them 'cat sweeties' though reckon its more like 'cat crack' the way our cat goes nuts for them. Only certain brands though, she turns her nose up at some of them. Some of them smell really nice so I've been tempted to taste...

iloveeverykindofcat Sat 08-Oct-16 16:05:46

I was about to suggest crack, judging by the reaction of every cat I know. Not about to try them but I tried dog chocolates when I was about six. It was a great disappointment.

TroysMammy Sat 08-Oct-16 16:08:38

I gave my cat some Dreamies. 5mins later he made a horrible noise and threw up the most sick I have ever seen in my life. He never had them again.

Willowfrost Sat 08-Oct-16 16:14:05

Our male will shred the packet to eat them, female won't touch them !!

Munchkin08 Sat 08-Oct-16 16:20:56

My boy loves them, I also think he make a great boyfriend for your girl Eachhand smile

I believe that pet food has to be suitable for human consumption so it wouldn't do any harm to try one. All for purely scientific research purposes!
