My cat gets a stick for a treat every now and then but I usually get cheapish ones. Feeling decadent, I thought Polo may appreciate an organic, gourmet stick. He was all over it but soon lost interest as it was just a little too hard to chew. It was still lying on the floor the next day so I put it in the bin. I gave the rest of them to another cat friend who ate them up without complaint, so it could be that in Polo's old age he can't be bothered to work for his treats. Lazy man. I think he ate one once, or else it is lost in a crevice and covered in slobber for eternity.
I chose these sticks because they have a high meat content which I think is better than the ones filled with water and who knows what else. My boy kitten growls so my little girl can't get anywhere near it. It takes him a long time (minutes rather than seconds) to devour it, unlike the water filled ones. It's a very hard stick though and I slightly worry about him wolfing it so quickly and not chewing it up enough, that he might choke. I'll probably try a different brand next time.
