I'm taking care of 17 stray and former feral cats. They all seem to love the smell and taste of this (and granted: the ingredients are top-notch). BUT: the pieces are way too big - especially since they are relatively 'hard'. Result: the smaller cats just swallow them whole - which isn't the idea, and it's not good. or they just spit them out again in frustration. Made me curious, so I tried one myself, and yep: they are hard to crack! They should be made a bit smaller!
