Say Hello to Ciao™ Cat Treats - Review and Giveaway

We have some excellent treats to tell you about today!  Do your kitties like real strips of chicken or tuna?  Do they like a smooth puree they can eat directly from the package?  If so, say hello to Ciao™ Cat Treats.
Brulee and Truffle liked the puree so much, I couldn't get a clear photo of them eating it.
Disclosure:  We received samples of Ciao Cat Treats for free in exchange for our fair and honest review.  Ciao Cat Treats is not responsible for the contents of this post.  Sweet Purrfections only shares products and information we feel will be of interest to our readers.

Mom Paula attended Global Pet Expo this past Spring and heard about this exciting and new cat treat for cats.  Of course, she had to visit the booth to hear what all the commotion was about.  Ciao is one of the best selling brands of premium wet food and treats for cats in Japan and is now available in the United States.  Ciao is manufactured by a company who has been in business since 1834 and began launching pet brands in 1989.  The Ciao treats are prepared exclusively with human-quality ingredients are are grain-free and preservative-free.  Each treat contains green tea extract for antioxidant benefits.  The deep ocean tuna used in the treats is sustainably harvested and certified dolphin-safe.  The cage-free chicken is naturally raised on closely supervised farms.  Ciao treats come in two different forms that should satisfy even the finickiest of cats.

The first form is the Ciao Churu™, which is a puree that you squeeze from a tub for us to lick like a popsicle.  Churu purees are made with chicken or ocean-caught tuna as the first ingredient.  The consistency is similar to yogurt or baby food, which would be great for kitties with tender mouths or as a topper for food to entice us to eat our food.  As soon as Mom Paula opened the tube (in fact, before it was fully opened), we immediately began licking the delicious puree.  Truffle couldn't get enough of the delicious puree and began biting the tube to get to it.  Mom Paula may consider serving this on a plate next time or on top of our food.  The Cio Churu purees come in five flavors:  tuna, tuna with chicken, chicken, tuna with scallop, and chicken with scallop.
Truffle and Brulee think the Churu purees are delicious.  Can you see the bite marks on the tube?

The second treat form from Ciao are the grilled fillets, which were Truffle's favorite.  This treat is made from hand-cut, responsibly harvested Pacific Ocean tuna and farm-raised chicken that has been lightly grilled and vacuum-packed in a savory broth.  The treat is a real strip of meat that is easily recognizable as chicken or tuna  (reminds us of some of the human commercials for chicken tenders).  The grilled chicken flavor looked so good that Mom Paula was tempted to taste it.  Mom Paula had to pull the strip apart into smaller pieces because because Truffle was eating it so fast, Mom Paula was afraid she may choke.   Mom Paula didn't feed us the whole fillet to us at one time because it was a large fillet.  She refrigerated the remaining portion for us to eat later.  If you have more than one kitty, the grilled fillet is the purrfect size to split among them.  There are eight varieties/flavors of the grilled fillets.  Ciao also has an "extra tender" version of the fillets for kitties who may have difficulty chewing.

Mom Paula was able to get a video of Truffle eating the Grilled Chicken Fillet in Chicken Flavored Broth.  Truffle loved the taste so much that she literally sat up and begged for more.

  2. How adorable that Truffle sat up for the treats! That's how all the cats here got started on doing tricks! Although SOME kitties (namely Boodie) never got past the sit up stage.

  16. Our Arata would probably like the Grilled Chicken Fillet in Chicken Flavored Broth. I think my Moko would like the tuna with chicken flavor of the Ciao Churu treats. Our newest furbaby, Kotoha, is only about five weeks old and only just starting on solid food - I'm guessing when she's ready, she'd like them all. (The dogs would be so jealous, but they get plenty of their own treats, too!)

  20. This is great! Because Bear has a proclivity to dental issues, he's lost several teeth and I like to give him treats that he doesn't have to work so hard to enjoy.

  24. The puree sounds like it would be perfect for my older girl, Elsie! I am definitely going to enter. Though my husband is deathly allergic to scallops so would probably have to avoid that flavor even though I am sure Elsie would love it.

  25. Wow sure looks like the girls love the treats and they sound fantastic. What brilliant photos- love the tongue and bite marks and sit pretty lol. Nala would have gone crazy for them too I am sure

  32. These sound really tasty! My cats love anything chicken flavored. Of course, at this point, Dexter is a bottomless pit, so he would probably like all of these flavors!

  33. I thought the treats were shaped like white "chicklets" gum (from way back in the day) based on your first photo, until I saw puree on the label. :) Your cats definitely seem to like both varieties; bet mine would too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love the pics of your kitties enjoying their new treats :) I think my cats favorite would be the Churu Tuna with Scallop Recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Looks like they both really enjoyed the treats! If I ever get a kitty, I will have to try these out!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Chicken, chicken and more chicken! Even though I seem to have a bit of a sensitivity to it, it is ok if I just eat a little at a time like in treats. Mom says she's surprised mom Paula DIDN'T taste these!
