Hi everyone! This month my cats tried Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats from Chewy. *

* Disclosure: We are part of the Chewy Blogger Program. We received the treats for free in exchange for reviewing them and spreading the word about Chewy. All opinions are our own.


These treats were a hit or miss with nothing in between. Joanie and Brody gobbled them right up.

Sammy loved them too as well as Prancie

KaTwo, Phoebe, Snowball and Penny did not like them . Nine out of thirteen is still pretty darn good though. They do break up easily to make them easier to chew. I just fed them as treats, but they can be added to the top of canned foods too.

The ingredients list is short which is always good:

Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Chewy has them on sale for $2.72/ 1 oz. bag. And don’t forgetMerrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Chicken Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Treats has free 1-2 day shipping on all orders over $49 so stock up on everything while you are there.




  1. M and Purr are supposed to test Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Salmon this month and thus far, all they have done is play soccer with them… Prior to this, their favorite treat has been Halo Freeze-dried salmon. However, we were away for the weekend . Purr wanted to come and was annoyed at being left behind… M was annoyed that Purr stayed and he didn’t get the house to himself…. Thus, I don’t know if the lack of interest was the brand or their attitudes…. Saphera really, really wanted the treats…

    1. That is funny that they played soccer with them πŸ™‚ Poor Purr must have missed you.

  2. Mmm, these sure do sound good, and I love that the ingredient list is short and sweet. I would indeed say that 9 out of 13 kitties is pretty darn good! I assume that Evan is probably the only kitty here who would eat these, but that’s how it goes at my house. Purrs!

  3. We received these two and got an overall meh response. At least Sadie likes them.

  4. Awww on all the babies. It’s good to see them enjoying their food. That doesn’t always happen with kitty food.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

  5. Mee-you Lady Ellen they sounded good till LadyMum red thee stuff inn them!! Chick-hen Liver….EEEWWWWW!!!!

    1. MOL! We are a lot alike my love. XO and paw kisses and nose rubs

  6. Nine out of thirteen IS pretty darn good! We think we would like these treats….especially Levon the treat fiend! πŸ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. At the moment Phoebe is on strike of all treats, she can be picky.

  7. Sounds pretty much pawsome with 9 of your sweet cats liking them!☺️ I’m forever looking for treats for Murli. She can’t tolerate most things, but a short ingredient list and no grains is always making it possible for us to try them.
    Often, they have foods from the US in some shops in Europe too, which we order from. Going to take a look.
    Love seeing your beautiful kitties!
    Murli and I wish you a lovely day and send hugs & love!?????

    1. I hope Murli can get some to try. Thank you for the compliment on my kitties πŸ™‚ Murli is a beauty too.

  8. That is great that 9 of them liked them, they sound healthy. I wish Pooh would eat freeze dried but she won’t. Still lucky right now to get her to eat period. Hugs and nose kisses

  9. Well….if some of you do not like them, then there are that many more for the others, MOL!
