Are these treats good to feed?

Turbo Treats http://www.turbotreats.com/

They have both dog and cat treats and you can email them for a free sample. Has anyone tried them for cats? http://www.turbotreats.com/products/

And what about Holistic Blend? http://www.holisticblend.com/

Prolly not their dry food, cuz all dry food is bad, right? But their treats for cats: http://www.holisticblend.com/index.php?cPath=21_26

Are these ok to feed to cats?

In small amounts, any of the above wouldn't be too horrible. I'm not a big fan of how grainy the Holistic Blend Organic cat treats are, and the addition of kelp to those as well as the Turbo Treats isn't ideal (kelp contains iodine, and too much iodine may be a risk factor for hyperthyroidism). I do like the Holistic Blend Chicken Passion, which is just 100% freeze-dried chicken. Can't go wrong with straight up meat!

One my grrl loves is PureBites they are just freeze dried meat

The Holistic Blend Chicken Passion would be good but their other treats have unneccessary ingredients like rice flour, oats etc

When you are looking at treats, not only should you be looking at the ingredients but also at where the treats are made. I have noticed that a lot of well known treats are made in China, and IMO their food safety issues are too scary to even be taking chances with.
