Talkin' Turkey & Cheeky Chicken HavePaws GIVEAWAY!

WAFFLES:  Mmmm... HavePaws CHEEKY Chicken! I have paws. And I like chicken. 



KATIE:  Waffles, what have you DONE???

WAFFLES:  Nothing.

KATIE:  Then why are you surrounded by empty treat bags? Shredded, empty treat bags. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know.

KATIE:  Don't you know we're supposed to be tasting and reviewing these for our giveaway? 

WAFFLES:  I already tasted them, Boss. Just doing my part.

KATIE:  Way to go, Waffles. It looks like a crime scene around here.



WAFFLES:  Crime scene?


FROM THE EDITOR:  Please note the grey duffle bag in the above photograph. It was zipped shut. Completely zipped shut. The zipper, known to be sticky, requires that Glogirly use two hands to open it. The unopened treats were safely packed away inside a Ziploc freezer bag, inside said duffle. That is all.


*One week later, after Glogirly emailed the HavePaws treat man. Subject line: Houston, we have a problem.*

HavePaws is something special.
We've known Noah Falkie of HavePaws for quite some time now. We've been in touch regularly as he's been developing his new line of jerky treats for cats and dogs. The moment we first heard his story, we knew he was working on something very special.

Like many pet parents, Noah wanted to do right by his furry family. Especially when it came to nutrition. He researched appropriate diets for cats and dogs and compared them to the ingredients listed on their food. He was astounded and disappointed to find what was actually in those foods was in many cases, anything but healthy. He promised himself he'd do whatever he could to make a difference.

In 2013 the first HavePaws recipe was born and in early 2014 HavePaws licensed it's first pet food manufacturing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Their mission is to give the pets of America a food that is healthy and nourishing, not just words on a label.



Nothing but the good stuff.
Many commercial-brand pet treats use artificial flavorings, colorings and preservatives in their treats. Ingredients you can't pronounce, let alone recognize.

HavePaws is different. Their small batch pet treats only contain fresh and locally grown meats, and vitamins and minerals that you know and understand. Their treats are always grain and gluten free, and have none of those artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. HavePaws ingredients.



The taste test.
The duffle bag story is true. You can't make that stuff up. To say that Katie and especially Waffles love these treats is an understatement. When Glogirly opened up a bag, the first thing she noticed was how yummy they smelled. Like real food. 



And the treats look like real food. The jerky chips, available in Talkin' Turkey and Cheeky Chicken, are substantial and meaty. At first Glogirly broke them off into small pieces, but when Waffles grabbed a slab and ran she saw how much fun he was having tearing into the whole thing. He was able to easily chew and break off smaller pieces. It kept him occupied for a few glorious minutes while Katie was able to enjoy hers without fear of Waffles' food thieving tendencies.

The treats are reasonably priced at $4.99 for a 2 ounce bag and $6.99 for a 4 ounce bag. Shipping is free on all orders. We LOVE free shipping! There's no 'treat dust' in these bags... nothing but yummy, meaty goodness.


It's a GIVEAWAY!
We're very excited about this giveaway! TWO lucky GLOGIRLY readers will receive a six-pack of the Talkin' Turkey Jerky Chips AND a six-pack for their favorite shelter. 





Though the prizes may only ship to US addresses, we invite our friends and readers worldwide to enter and gift their prize to a US friend and shelter should they win.




Despite Waffles' enthusiastic package opening skills, these are not self-serve treats. Good luck convincing your cats of that.

Regardless of the payment received, we only feature products and services on GLOGIRLY that we use or feel our readers would benefit from using.

  11. Important when choosing treats is price and, of course, that they're not full of harmful chemicals, preservatives, and fillers. Greenies reign supreme around here at the moment.

  15. We always try and get treats that are healthy and taste good. Gemini only likes the freeze dried chicken and Chey is a fishy flake fan (probably not so healthy, but you do what you can with Chey). Ichiro might like these!

  19. Well, if the treats are Waffles AND Katie approved, they must be good.

    ReplyDelete
  20. So hard to find treats without a list of junk ingredients. The list for these jerky chips is great! I'm just afraid my cats might like them so much that they'll figure out how to join together and open the potato chip tin where I keep treats!

  21. Waffles is a magician - when it comes to chicken. You need a hidden video camera to see how he managed that trick! The treats look amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They look very yummy!! :) I look for meat being the first ingredient when choosing treats for my cat.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, since they are treats, the most thing I look for is that my cats really like them but, I am far from opposed to giving them treats that they love AND are good for them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Those sure look like something we'd love to sink our teeth into@

    ReplyDelete
  35. So wonderful to feed treats that they like and that are good for them but difficult to find! I'd love to try these.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Treats are no good if we don't like them, so we would say taste is important. Jan would say quality of ingredients.

    This reminds us of a few incidents around here, including the one a few years ago when Percy found Jan's stashes of cat and dog treats and helped himself!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I guess the most important part is whether they'll eat the treats, then how healthy they are.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ashton is drooling at the idea of that real chicken and turkey. These sound great!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I just try to steer clear of treats with artificial colors. Healthy treats is always a bonus!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Healthy treats as long as they have chicken in them.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would love to have seen a video of Waffles stealing those treats :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. My cats get all things that are healthy

    ReplyDelete
  43. Those look yummy. Mum gives me real chick-hen when she makes chick-hen for herself, we had chick-hen tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I try to give my furbabies - both cats and dogs - food and treats that are healthy. I look for grain-free, quality protein products that are NOT made in China.

    ReplyDelete
  45. These look lovely! I know a bunch of feral cats that would love to tear into there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh my dog, those look delicious. I bet Molly Mew would love them. She loves when ma makes us chickyum treats. She loves to share with me too. Just ask her!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I try to get treats that are healthy and taste good. I hope my cats think they taste good. I don't eat them☺.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The ingredients are the most important, but I also want the treats to taste great for my pets.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Waffles you chicken beast you! To rip through a bag like that, they must be awesome. We gotta try em. Love the names too. Purrs, Greyson, Mr. Chivers, Tabitha & Chloe

    ReplyDelete
  50. The treats need to be made in the US, grain free and low carb since my primary treat lover is a diabetic. This would be great to try!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Those treats look good. Waffles you need to teach all the other kitties your burglary skills. To get into a duffle bag that Glogirly has to use 2 hands to open and then get through a ziplock bag. Boy, do have some skills. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Inquiring minds wanna know if Glogirly took a nibble. Pop would prolly taste them but I wouldn’t. Best of luck to those who enter.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I try to make sure the treats I give my cats are healthy and something they will enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the picture of Waffles eating the treat!

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's important that the products are made in the USA. I think that's healthier and supports America.

  56. Mom looks for the best ingredients in our treats, or more importantly what isn't in them. We want taste and lots of it! ( Raine on RC buzzyngabe at yahoo dot com )
