Now I have actually found a worthwhile treat. No more rubbish chew books, oh no!
‘Woodlands‘ seems to be a growing brand at my local pet shop. They seem to go for the ‘natural and healthy toys and treats’ angle for your pets. They make cottages, houses, treats, chew toys, nibbles and even bridges all in this rustic look.
I have noticed more and more products with this brand and thought I would see what the fuss is about.
It looks great!
The packaging is simple and very eye-catching and really emphasises that natural and healthy aspect of the product.
Ohhh I feel all Dragons Den! ;P
Its also a very reasonable size – it dwarfs Dexter in comparison! It looks the part for sure. And the little seedy things all over it, I know for a fact that my hammy’s LOVE it. Basically, buying this isn’t a punt, its not a risky buy – its pretty much a sure fire winner for my hams!
And judging by the size, this treat is not exactly going to be munched through overnight! So its like an investment as well as a treat for the hamsters! Kind of
Now perfectly, they were on offer; 3 for £3 which as they were £1-something-or-rather individually meant I could make a little saving too! Bargain right?! And of course I would need three for my 3 munchers!
I put the treats in their cage and almost within an instant, they were being sniffed and licked and dragged to their nests – very cute when the carrots are the same length of the hammys themselves!
It doesnt even fit in his bowl! Very tempting right Cas
So far so good – much better than the bedtime book chew toys
There weren’t just carrot shaped treats. There was a choice of a carrot, a heart and stars which means you could spoil your pet in a choice of ways! I would have gotten one of each, as they are all included on the offer, but decided that I liked the carrot ones the best so just got three of them!
Even the ever fussy Dexter liked the treat shape. It only lasted for a matter of minutes in his bowl, as he attempted to drag it to his nest. It was very sweet as it was too heavy and big and so became a bit of a kerfuffle, getting wedged underneath the ledge and his flying saucer. Silly Billy!
This is the only photo I could get before his taste of the Woodlands carrot got too much to handle and he had to have it in his nest before a greedy human took it out! I would never steal it, I swear! But Dexter doesn’t believe me, he is such a paranoid furry! hehehe.
