SHEBA Meaty Tender Sticks Review

SHEBA Meaty Sticks Review

I love trying out and testing new products for my blog. Today, I got to switch things up a little as my wonderful kitty, Xander, helped me review a new cat treat: SHEBA Meaty Tender Sticks. Read on to see Xander’s thoughts!

The SHEBA Meaty Tender Sticks came in a pack of 5. Each stick was individually packaged but all connected together. There are perforated lines to help you with tearing off each stick section but, unfortunately, it can still be easy to accidentally tear into the next stick if you’re not careful. Above you can see on the side closest to Xander’s face how even when I tear very carefully and slowly, it’s still pretty jagged. You definitely do not want to just rip these off. I would even recommend using a pair of scissors just to make things simple.

Once I opened up one of the sticks, I put it near Xander’s face to let him smell it. He initially showed absolutely no interest in it, and I thought this review was doomed. Xander can be a little finicky with his food, but he LOVES treats. I knew he just needed a little encouraging. After walking away probably having no idea what I just stuck in his face, I broke off a small piece and, once again, let him sniff it. His ears immediately perked up, and he ate the small bit. Before I knew it, he was coming for the rest of the stick!

These SHEBA Meaty Tender Sticks remind me of Slim Jims (which I love) but softer and with no outer film/coating so it was very easy to break off small pieces if you’re worried about your cat swallowing the thing whole – which Xander totally did! After finishing off the first stick, he grabbed the second one from my hand, chewed on it a little bit, then wolfed it down! I was worried that he was going to choke on it, but he showed no indication of swallowing difficulty. He just wanted another!

Xander is about 7 years old but has a lot of health issues including feline asthma and many dental problems. Last year, we had to remove several of his teeth including one of his upper canines. You might notice a little scar near his mouth where his bottom canine catches his lip because the other tooth isn’t there. It’ll sometimes make him look like he’s snarling at you. Even though his vet says it’s fine for him to eat hard food and treats, I do feel better knowing that these are soft and so easy for him chew, lick, and swallow.

I also love that these treats are made with such good ingredients! Real chicken is the first ingredient and there are no artificial flavors or colors.  No corn, wheat, or soy either – woot! Only the best for my baby!

Overall, I would definitely recommend these treats for your kitty! Also comes in Tuna and Salmon.

  • Roxanne Ferber

    Looks like a great treat for cats!! We don’t own a cat but there are several of my neighbors cats that visit. 🙂

    • Awww, that’s cute that they visit you! I’m sure any of them would like these too! 🙂

  • Xander is such a cutie. I don’t have a cat, but Xander makes me want to get one so I can give him Sheba Meaty Tender sticks, too!

    • Haha, awww thank you, Heather!! Xander wins everyone over! <3

  • Rebecca Bryant

    Aw what a pretty kitty. your fur baby looks like he is enjoying his treat for sure.

  • Vicky Perreault

    I bet my cat would love these and I know my kids would love giving her treats. Our kitty loves Sheba products! By the way, Xander is stunning!

    • Aww, thank you so much, Vicky!! Even with all his health issues, I still think he is the most handsome kitty! I think you should definitely give these a try with your kitties! <3

  • Such a majestic-looking feline you’ve got there! I own two kitties of my own, and they actually LOVE these treats. They bat them around like crazy, first, of course. Cute post!

    • Thank you, Brooke!! That’s so great that your kitties love these as well!! Haha, and I love that you used the word “majestic” to describe Xander! That’s the one word my family and I always use to describe him! He has such a regal air about him lol.

  • Debra Hawkins

    These look great for any kitty friend. It’s always fun to give your furry friend a treat!

    • So very true! All kitties deserve a nice treat every now and then! : )

  • Christina

    We’d have to keep these treats hidden around our house. Our 3 cats have been known to steal treats and hide them. Thanks for the review, I’ll have to let you know how our tribe likes them.

    • Yes, please do! So funny about your cats stealing and hiding treats! We have to keep our treats and cat food in a high cabinet above the kitchen sink to keep them away from Xander! He’s so smart, he knows how to open cabinet doors so we have to keep them out of his reach!

  • Christine Cox

    That is seriously a gorgeous cat!! My mom’s cat used to LOVE her treats! Just by shaking the bag, she knew what was in there and would rub against our legs. It was so funny!

  • I want to say that these photo look super editoral and Sheby need to hire your cat! I dont have a cat but I am happy your cat love these treats.

  • Taylor Smith

    That is one GORGEOUS CAT!!! Holy cow! How did you get him to pose?! My siamese always rolls his eyes at me! LOL.

  • Looks like one very happy kitty. Seems like the only thing that needs to change on these treats is the way the are packaged together.

  • Cynthia @craftoflaughter

    What a beautiful cat! I’ll have to check these treat out for my kitty, she hasn’t had anything but little ones!

  • Amanda Love

    Looks like the perfect treat for cats! We’ve recently adopted a kitten and she’s the sweetest thing in the world. It’s good to spoil her with treats that are good for her from time to time!

  • It’s so fun to give pets treats! We don’t have cats because most of my family is allergic, but my cousin has the biggest fluffiest cats that I love to cuddle with when we visit (I am the one that is not allergic!).

  • I love that these meat tender sticks break into little pieces so they don’t pose a choking hazard. I would hate to put our beloved pet in danger due to choking.
