Today is Sammy’s (onespoiledcat) Thoroughly Poetic Thursday, and the prompt letter for our poems this week is “Q.”  As we had a review to do for some newer foods from Sheba®, we decided to combine our poem and review with a new poem, entitled, “The Quest.”


The Quest

The Quest for yummy noms #1.When on a quest for yummy noms,
New food we often get to test.
Some of these can sure be bombs,
While others can outshine the rest.

Sheba® sent food and treats to try:
Perfect Portions and Meaty Sticks.
We loved them both, we cannot lie
And ate them all up super quick.

Our mom was surprised and amazed
When she saw the food was a stew,
As by this type we’re rarely phased.
If not pate, we’re unenthused.

The Meaty Tender Sticks were a treat
With no fake flavors or colors
Corn, soy or wheat, just yummy real meat.
This kind of thing pleases mothers.

Kitties Blue give Sheba® an A + grade.
We hope our folks buy it at the store.
We think it’s some of the best food made
And are certain…we want some more!

We tested the Perfect Portions Savory Salmon and Chicken Entrée Cuts in Gravy. We are huge fans of salmon, which Mom is certain had something to do with our lapping up these noms.

Ingredients for the Salmon and Chicken Entrée:

Chicken Broth, Salmon, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Meat By-Products, Poultry By-Products, Tapioca Starch, Minerals (Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Potassium Iodide, Copper Sulfate), Natural Flavor, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Added Color, Fish Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Xanthan Gum, Vitamins (Choline Chloride, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Vitamin E Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6], Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex [Source of Vitamin K Activity]), Salt, Taurine, DL-Methionine

The Perfect Portions Cuts come in six different flavors offering something for every kitty.


The Quest for yummy noms #2.


The Meaty Tender Sticks we tested were the turkey flavor.  They come in a five pack with each stick individually wrapped for freshness. They are soft and easy to break into bite-sized pieces; though, Astrid thought they were just fine in stick form.

The ingredients in those are:

Turkey, Pork, Pork Liver, Chicken, Pork Skin, Brewers Dried Yeast, Sugar, Animal Plasma, Salt, Yeast Extract, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Lactic Acid, Potassium Sorbate (A Preservative), Glycine, Calcium Lactate, Taurine, Rosemary Extract, Sodium Ascorbate (A Preservative), Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement

The Meaty Tender Sticks also are available in six flavors as well as in 11 stick multi-packs in chicken and salmon flavors.

Both products are available from traditional retailers, on-line retailers and pet stores nationwide.

Disclaimer: We received one two-pack of Perfect Portions and one packet of Meaty Tender Treats directly from Sheba® for our fair and honest review. The opinions are strictly those of Kitties Blue based on their taste test.
