H3 Essentials Freeze Dried Treats - a review


This is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to share this with you.

I found yet another brand of single ingredient cat treats and since we are such fans of those I thought I would give them a try. They are made by H3 Essentials


I found them via Cole & Marmalade who partnered with H3 to raise money for Big Cat Rescue as a portion of each purchase will help feed big cats. They come in four flavors: chicken, rabbit, ahi tuna and minnow. You are also offered a 10% off coupon when you go to the website.

Since I usually feed my cats chicken, I decided to buy the three other flavors. I had signed up for the coupon but was distracted before I could place the order so I actually forgot to apply it when I made the order. They send it via email, so when I saw the email a little later I wrote to them and asked if they might give me credit for it anyway. I received an email a few moments later showing they gave me back the credit and then I received a very nice email  from Pamela explaining that she would refund the discount. I was very impressed.

Shipping was quick and they put all three packs of treats in one small box. I guess I hadn't even noticed the size of the packages. The rabbit has 0.9 oz (25.5 g). The tuna has 1.1 oz (31.2g). The minnows only has 0.5 oz (14.2g). Each package is $7.99 but there is no additional charge for shipping.


One thing I noticed right away that the rabbit and tuna treats were different than other freeze dried treats we have had. For one thing, they had the look and feel of kibble.


Here comes the minnow..


The rabbit and tuna treats I was okay with handling. I touched them just fine and tossed them down on the floor for the cats to try. I was surprised they weren't a 100% hit as my cats adore kibble. They were appreciated, though, I wouldn't turn down additional bags to give to the cats.

The minnow.. that just gave me the willies. I would not touch that myself, but I did get a piece of paper to shuffle that thing down to the ground for the cats to eat.  Jack LOVED it and ate a couple of them. Fleurp gave it a try but soon spit it out and wouldn't touch it again. No one would eat the one covered in Fleurp slobber so I ended up picking it up with another piece of paper and throwing it away. I gave Jack more of them over the next couple of days and he ate all of them until a fish head came flying out of his mouth and then he was done.  So I did what any sane rational woman with a bag full of dead fish would do.. I brought it down to the kittens..

but that is for another post ;)

  2. Not much bothers me ... but those minnows are something. I also doubt I'd react well to a fish head flying out of Bear's mouth, but I guess you should try everything once, right?

  3. OMC I could actually see you dealing with the fishies in my mind. I would have done the same thing- that's if I decided to even try them. I may have decided not to open them and donate them to the local shelter. I hate fish. But now I can't wait to see what the kittens think of them!

  4. We can just imagine you not wanting to handle the minnows like that! The head peep felt that way about the dried sardines from our meowbox. We were all thoroughly wierded out by their texture (except Ashton, of course), so we don't blame your kitties for being cautious about those fish at all.

  6. I'll bet Sadie would have loved the minnows. I once bought some freeze-dried mini shrimp and she adored those.
