    Hey

    I have been playing around with some recipes and would like some taste testers for some tuna treats I have made. They are part of a product range I am taking to market later in the year should they prove popular.

    They have passed the Gypsy Test to the point my leg is bleeding from her climbing it
    They passed the Loki test to the point I have teeny teeth marks on my finger where he was enthusiastic in his grabbing
    the Indy and Mabel tests are inconclusive as they aren't big treat fans

    the only ingredients are: tuna, egg, rice flour, geletin and salmon oil. Nothing else, not a single thing.

    If you want a taster pack for your kitties to try, just drop me a private message with your address and make a note on this thread to show interest please :) they are free and you'll get around 5-10 pieces per kitty to try (max 20 pieces)

    I'm sure Gratch and Kerry would love to try them since they're being such good mommy and daddies. Though they aren't fans of fish flavoured wet food they like the dry and treats aswell.

    Oscar looked very dis-interested until I mentioned they were 'Food'!! He wants to know how many words he'll have to type in the review before he commits... That cat takes laziness to levels they haven't even discovered yet... :mad:

    Merson, on the other hand, is more than happy to assist you & will pm you shortly. :D :D

    Right

    we have a good selection to start with I think :)

    I will drop them all in the post tomorrow on my way to or from college (depends on when post office opens in my village)

    they were made yesterday and have a 5-7 day best before on them so will send first class.

    When received and eaten if you can pm me the answers to

    Please rate 0-5 (0 = terrible/never again 3 = ok 5 = gimme more or you find a mouses head on your pillow! aka fab)

    1) Appearence/First Impression
    2) Palatability - did they eat it? Enjoy it?
    3) Smell
    4) How well did they keep? (kept in cool, dry, dark place)
    5) Any further comments

    Don't worry am working on other flavours so there will be further guinea-cat opportunities

    The next flavours being worked on are Rabbit, Chicken and a Hairball one (prob chicken or rabbit based as they are my cheapest meats - a whole rabbit is 20p! but I have to clean, skin and bone it ick)

    13 packs of cat treats were posted off today, Sorry Amin but I ran out, as it is everyone only got around 15 pieces but you are first on the list for chicken treats when I have worked the recipe out to perfection

    I missed 3pm pick up so they have gone second class, should reach people Wednesday. You should easy spot them as they come in the post
