Natural Balance Cat Treats Review

We were contacted by Chewy.com to review the Natural Balance Perfect Bites Cat Treats.  We chose to try the chicken flavored treats.  They come in rabbit, salmon, and chicken formulas.

Dick Van Patten is the co-founder of Natural Balance.  Some of your humans may remember him in his role as the father in Eight is Enough (we know our mom used to watch that show).  His goal was to create a pet food based on sound scientific principles and not marketing hype.  The Natural Balance brand has healthy food and treats for both dogs and cats.  Here is the description of the chicken formula treats from the Chewy.com website:

Natural Balance Perfect Bites Chicken Formula Cat Treats

Natural Balance Perfect Bites are a healthy, guilt-free, delicious snack for any kitty. Only one calorie per treat. Your cat will love these meaty morsels packed with intense flavor.
Key Benefits
  • Only one calorie per piece for a healthy, guilt-free snack
  • Unique hexagon shape works with cat's taste buds
  • Quality Ingredients including chicken
  • No corn, soy, wheat, artificial flavors or colors


Truffle liked the treats so much that she took off with the bag when Mom Paula wasn't looking.

We LOVED these treats.  They are unique in that they have a hexagon shape (that's a six sided shape).  As soon as Mom Paula opened the bag, we were ready to dig in.  Brulee had a little bit of a problem taking the treat from Mom Paula's fingers because of its shape, but she then opened her mouth and Mom Paula dropped it in.

Gimme, gimme, gimme!

Everyone knows how much Truffle loves treats and these Natural Balance Perfect Bite Cat Treats were no exception.  After Mom Paula caught her before she escaped with the whole bag, Truffle eat them from Mom Paula's fingers.
 Yum!  These are good!

 Truffle liked the treats so much that she grabbed Mom Paula's fingers with both paws and pulled the treats to her mouth.  Good thing Truffle's claws were just trimmed.

Mom Paula will also put the treats in her hand and let us eat directly from her hand.  All in all, we give these treats four paws up!  They are healthy and delicious.  Our only recommendation to Natural Balance may be to make the treats a little longer to make it easier for flat faced kitties to eat them, but Brulee managed just fine!

We were not compensated for this review.  Chewy.com sent us a bag to sample and for our review.  We've ordered our food and other treats from Chewy and plan on doing so again in the future.

  2. Great review! I prefer fishy treats to chicken ones, I'm not so sure I'd like them as much as you do.

  4. I think I am the only cat in the Blogosphere who didn't get to try these treats! But that's okay, we still have some treats from BlogPaws... no thanks to Binga who has been trying to break into our stash!

  12. This is the third review of these we have read and we have asked our mom to get us some. Are they only available at Chewy.com or can she get them for us at Kroger, PetCo or Pet Smart? The photos of you girls eating your treat out of Mom Paula's hand are so precious. Enjoy your new noms, but no stealing the entire bag allowed. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
