Review of Ciao Cat Treats

Murphy, Lily and I recently received samples of two premium cat treats called Ciao, from a company called Inaba Foods for our review: Grilled Fillets and Churu Purees.

The purees are lickable treats made with ocean-caught tuna or farm-raised chicken that come in five flavors:

  • Tuna
  • Tuna with Chicken
  • Chicken
  • Tuna with Scallop
  • Chicken with Scallop

These come in foil packets that are similar to kids’ yogurt, and can be fed straight up, or added to wet or dry cat food.

The grilled fillets come vacuum-packed, and are available in either farm-raised chicken or Pacific Ocean tuna, in eight different varieties. These are hand-cut, human-grade foods that are free of any synthetic chemicals or preservatives. Plus, all of these cat treats are grain-free, and natural.

Lily and Murphy Meow for Ciao

My kitties received two different varieties of the Churu purees for their evaluation: tuna and chicken. They didn’t much care for the chicken (because they aren’t huge fans of poultry), but absolutely loved the tuna variety.

But despite that they are not fans of poultry, they did adore the Grilled Fillet, which happened to be chicken. This tender white meat breast was so moist and meaty that I was tempted to try it!

I love that these treats are healthy, natural, are made from foods that are responsibly harvested and/or raised, and are not ridiculously expensive. The fillets retail for $1.99, while the purees are $3.99 for a four-pack of 2-ouncers.

Murphy and Lily give Ciao cat treats two paws up.
