In the treats for cats category Bravo’s Bonus Bites Treats line stole the show. There are two new feline-friendly flavors. The freeze-dried North Atlantic lobster meat was selected for its nutritional value and pet appeal, the company reports. And cats will enjoy snacking on the dry-roasted all-natural duck feet treats, the company adds. The treats are made in the USA in the company’s USDA-certified plant from antibiotic free poultry, fresh fish and grass-fed red meats and come in Bravo’s new eco-friendly packaging, according to the manufacturer.
