Eyes, Ears or Nose

Micah:  Hey, Sam and Marcus, you guys look a bit strange. What are you staring at so intently?

Sam:  Treats!  We're waiting for treats. 

Merci:  We had the opportunity to try the Canidae Life Stages and the Grain Free Pure treats.

Buddy:  This is what the treats look like.  Notice Sam's eye in the bottom right corner of the photo.  He can't take his eyes off the treats.

Sam:  Neither could you, Buddy. 

Buddy:  Well, at least I don't look wild-eyed like Marcus does.  His eyes, ears or nose are in just about every photo Jan took of us.  He'd be in every one of them, except Jan cropped him out of a few.

Merci:  Hmmm, I see what you mean.  Here I am finally tasting a treat and there are Marcus' ears. 

Marcus:  We tried the crunchy oven baked Life Stages natural & holistic Bakery Snacks. They contain no wheat, corn, soy, fillers, antibiotics, hormones, artificial flavors or preservatives.  They ingredients in the flavor we tried has brown rice, pea flour, turkey, quinoa, butternut squash, chicken fat and natural flavor.  They have a "snap" feature for breaking them in two for smaller portions for training or treats, but Jan didn't read the package first, so we got whole treats.  *big smile*  Mmmmm, good.

Sam:  And the Grain Free Pure Heaven biscuits with duck and chickpeas.  They were tasty too.

Buddy:  They are made with pea flour, potato, cane molasses, duck, chickpeas, salt, natural flavor, chicken fat, sesame seed, avocado oil, and tumeric.

Merci:  The guys were knocking them out of Jan's hand so they could have a sneak preview.  I waited my turn.  I should have had extra for good manners.

Marcus:  These crunchy biscuits are supposed to help clean our teeth.  I think they both tasted great.  Jan's fingers?  Not so good!

Cyndi:  Jan gave me a sample of the two types of Grain Free Pure treats for cats and Percy raced over to help himself to my share.  He was eating them so fast the photo came out blurred so Jan turned it into black and white. 

Percy:  I couldn't help myself.  I heard the bags ripped open and smelled the treats. The salmon treats were made with fresh salmon, salmon meal, menhaden fish meal, peas, potatoes, canola oil, sweet potatoes, natural flavor and mixed tocopherols. 

Micah:  Yes, and Percy rushed in to help me eat my share too.  I didn't need his help, but he didn't care.  The chicken flavor ingredients are chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal, peas, potatoes, chicken fat, lamb meal, natural flavor, menhaden fish meal, and mixed tocopherols. 

Rusty:  Which flavor shall I try first?  Eeeny, meeny ... oh, no, you don't Percy!  I'll finish off my own, thank you.

Cameron:  Good thing Percy is off helping the other cats so I can taste test in peace.  I think both flavors are very tasty, even if they aren't "junk food".  Do we get seconds, or has Percy eaten them all?

Buddy:  Between all of us we give these treats 8 paws up.

Marcus:  Ahem! 

Buddy:  Oh, sorry.  We are temporarily 9 so we give them 9 paws up, not 8.

Percy:  This is not a review. Canidae didn't ask us to do a review, just to let them know what we think of their treats.  We figured pictures would spice up our response, so we decided to share our taste test results in a post.
