Tama-Chan's Treats on Tuesday

Isn't that a nice photo of me in the run? Well, that was a few days ago. Now it is cold and wet and windy. Sigh... What's a girl to do for her post, then? But I had an idea! I thought our friends around the world would be interested in an exposé of our treats here. So, here goes...

The first and very important thing to know is that the treats that are known as Temptations in North America are called Dreamies in Europe:

The great news is that Party Mix, which is one of our favourite American treats has recently become available in France, under the brand name Felix Party Mix!

Here are some assorted European treats for your perusal:

We haven't yet tried the Gimpet Grass Bits but they sound intriguing. We love all the various stick-type treats!

Here is another selection, being examined by Genji. This includes some "niboshi" dried Japanese whitebait. Very yummy!

These two tubes both contain freeze-dried chicken bits. We all absolutely love them!

And finally, since it is Tuesday and we are talking treats, Genji asked if we could include a close-up of his toes. Not sure how he would feel if someone tried to bite into them, though...


  1. Oh Miss Tama, you look so lovely as usual.

    We were wondering what Dreamies were!! We keep hearing about them!

  2. That's a fine stash of treats! Wowie! We are not allowed treaties any more because of Gandalf's FLUTD. Bugger.

  3. I do hope woo've khontinued to have a chat with that Bibi-Chat!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! I wonder how tasty these treats are!?!

  4. OH! I wondered what were Dreamies! Now I know and it was great fun to see the European treats too as well as the names for Party Mix (which I LOVE) and Temptations (which I also love!)

    Those feeties of Genji are in danger of mom kissies.

  5. Wow you have a lot of yummy looking treats!!! I bet Genji's toes are the tastiest treat of all though :-)

  6. Hello Queen Tama!
    I'm going to lodge a formal complaint - I get one type of treat only, and that's Greenies - which are yummy, but even I don't get often, and usually as a bribe to come inside *sniff* I hear about Party Mix all the time from other kitties, and do think I need to sample it for quality control purposes. Genji's toes are irresistable! Purrs from Lady Katie Bastest

  7. Mum hasn't seen those freeze-dried chicken bits - does #1 get them in France of in the UK?
    Thank you for the lovely picture of your very clean toesies Genji.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. Äiti wants to know if the keyboard is going to be damaged by a pool of drool.....

  9. Try the beachcomber variety of the Party Mix-it is superb! I received a bag from a human friend and my person took sooo long to open the bag that I tried to bite through it to help her. She refers to it as kitty crack.

  10. Genji toes!!!!! Squeeeeee! Sweet little light mauve pads! So adorable!
    Tama, how do you keep your beautiful figure with all of the magnificent treaties your mum has for you? They all look so tasty but the idea of little fishie snacks sends us over the moon!
    Love and kisses to you.

  11. My favorite treats are the freeze-dried chicken! I could make a whole meal out of them.

    I would not bite Genji's toes... well, unless they smelled like chicken. Then I would be tempted.

  12. Wowsers ...LP sucks at getting us treats. She hardly buys treats at all and claims it's because our tummies seem to be sensitive to most treats :(
    Enjoy your varied treats and we hope the sun comes out soon too :)

  13. Oh! We used to get Pussi Sticks from a friend in Sweden. It's fun to get cat treats and food from other countries!

    When I go travelling, I always get food for my kitties. I've brought them rabbit and duck kibble from London, canned fish from Tokyo, chicken from Amsterdam and different treats from Quebec City; and also toys from everywhere!

    The one thing I did learn is, it's usually legal to bring cat food across the border, but I have had to throw out beef and lamb from the UK and Holland while going through customs. I was told that it was because of a fear of Hoof & Mouth disease that one is not allowed to bring meat from cloven-hooved animals - including cat food! - because it posed a potential threat.

    I love foreign cat food and treats, though!

  14. Pawesome treats you have there. We think we might even like to try that niboshi - we love all kinds of fish.

    Beautiful photo of you, Tama-Chan, but they always are.

  15. Your so lucky to have those great threats, one of my friends favorite is the party mix :)
