Halo Healthsome Cat Treats and How to Review Them!

Chewy.com to the rescue!

Unless you have “Liked” my Facebook page, you missed the Big Treat Disaster of 2013: a swarm of ants got into the cabinet where our treats are stored and my human wound up having to throw out five whole bags! It was an awful tragedy, but all was not lost because just a day later, this box arrived in the mail! It was from Chewy.com and they sent me some Halo Healthsome cat treats to review!

I LOVE their crinkle paper!

In addition to the badly-needed treats, the box also contained Chewy.com’s special crinkly packing paper — always a fun extra for us kitties!

Bags of treats are meant to be OPEN!

I know many of you blogging kitties out there get to review treats too, and this particular photo session reminded me that there are some rules that should be followed… because my human did not follow them this time! Here is the first rule: kitties don’t like to pose with treat bags that are not opened yet.


The next rule: kitties don’t like to pose with opened bags of treats either, unless the human is in the act of actually pouring some out!

Bast helps kitties who help themselves.

Finally, I decided to just help myself.

Sneaky Boodie

I got the cat treats with real chicken, which is cool because chicken is my favorite flavor! They are quite tasty, and they have fiber which, to be honest, I kind of need. While there are a lot of ingredients that probably shouldn’t make up the bulk of a cat’s diet (potato flour, tapioca flour and several veggies), there was also no corn, wheat, added sugar or other bad things — and, well, treats shouldn’t make up the bulk of a kitty’s diet anyhow. Best part: chicken was listed right at the beginning of the ingredients list!

Did I say you could watch?

Yes, I knew Boodie was sitting there, salivating!

And yes, she got more than one.

Her patience was eventually rewarded. My human had to lock up Binga while we were taste testing, otherwise Boodie and I would never have gotten any! But she got some later and we all loved these treats. So count that as 12 paws up for the Halo Healthsome treats! You can find more Halo food and treats here.

    Sorry about that ant disaster. When I won the Nose To Nose Award last year, I got those treats and hated them so I won’t enter. I don’t think Chewy likes me cos I seem to be the only blogger who he won’t work with. They emailed me once and was supposed to send me something which never arrived.

    Those sound pretty good, especially to Lily Olivia, who has been bummed out 😥 ever since we can’t get the original Pounce anymore. She won’t even sniff at any of the other brands. Thanks for the review. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Someday, somebody somewhere will invent a treat I will actually eat. But I will never know it because after having spent $4,363,287 on treats for me which ALL — every single one–ended up in the garbage or (usually) in the mouths and tummies of her friends’ cats, she has Officially Given Up and will never again buy me a treat.
