    There is one product and only one product that goes into the making of Cat-Man-Doo Bonito flakes. That product is called Katsuowonus pelamis, known to us here in the U.S. as Bonito. Bonito is a bony fish that hails from the Tuna family. It is fished wild approximately 300 to 500 miles off the South East coast of Japan in the salt waters of the western Pacific Ocean. The seawater is characterized by the elevated concentration of dissolved oxygen that results in high biological productivity. Therefore, fishing is the dominant economic activity in the region. Bonito is used extensively in Japanese cuisine for making a savory broth while cats and dogs love the flakes just the way they are, right out of the container!

    Once caught, the fish is processed both by hand and by machine in a temperature controlled factory. It is dried then cut into very thin slices. The drying process alone takes 20 to 30 days. There are no additives or preservatives added to the fish at any point before, during or after the processing. Absolutely nothing has been introduced into the fish to compromise its purity. This is an important quality to be aware of when purchasing a healthy treat for your pet. There are many different brands of bonito available on the market. However, there are a few things that make Cat-Man-Doo Bonito flakes popular with pet owners.

    First, our Bonito flakes are among the highest quality flakes on the market and they are derived from a single protein source making them a healthy choice when rewarding your pet. Cat-Man-Doo flakes are larger, moister and have a fresher aroma and appearance than other Bonito flakes. Because Cat-Man-Doo Bonito is high in protein and low in calories with a minimal fat content, it is the perfect choice for our more “robust” pets. It also contains Taurine which is an essential dietary requirement for feline health. Taurine protects your cat from serious eye maladies. The natural fish oils that are found in Bonito will keep your cat or dog’s fur shiny and beautiful.

    Secondly, Cat-Man-Doo uses a patented MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) process. This technology extracts the oxygen from our containers and immediately seals them tightly, similar to the manner in which potato chips are packaged. Our MAP machine was developed and patented exclusively for Cat-Man-Doo Inc. This “stay-fresh” packaging minimizes the drying, shrinkage, and breakdown of the flakes and allows our Bonito to stay as fresh as the day it was packaged. With Bonito, freshness equals flavor and flavor equals quality and this is what drives cats and dogs wild for Cat-Man-Doo Bonito. Thanks to this packaging process, nutritional value is maintained and the benefits are passed down to your pets by way of retention of the natural fish oils which provide urinary tract health, reduced hair balls and a silky coat.

    Just prior to packaging, we sift our Bonito flakes through a ¼” by ¼” stainless steel screen. This removes a majority of the fines, dust and small pieces that pets sometimes leave behind making it a better financial choice for our customers since nothing goes to waste. Finally, we package our flakes in a clear, reusable, recyclable container so that our customers can see what they are buying. Store your Bonito in a cool, dry place. There is no need to refrigerate but direct sunlight will shorten the shelf life of this product.

    Cat-Man-Doo Bonito flakes are available in three sizes, a ½ ounce Pouch, a 1 ounce Pouch and a 4 ounce “Big Bag.” The "Big Bag" is excellent for multiple cat and dog households or for the pet with a serious “addiction.” Cat-Man-Doo Bonito can serve as a highly effective food enhancement. Prescription diets can be bland and unappetizing to a cat or dog who may have little appetite to begin with. However without these prescription diets, a pet with poor health may not live as long. Cat-Man-Doo is recommended by veterinarians to add to your pet’s diet in order to spark an interest in eating what’s put in front of them. We offer Cat-Man-Doo Sprinkles which is the same healthy product as our original flakes but is already “crushed” and ready to sprinkle over any meal. However, we strenuously advise that you check with your veterinarian prior to adding anything to your pet’s prescription diet.

    While fish has been stereotyped as a food for cats, don’t forget that dogs love fish too. You can purchase Bow Wow Bonito by Cat-Man-Doo in your store’s dog section or with our other products here on our website.

    Since Cat-Man-Doo products are produced by individuals who truly love, care for and share our lives with multiple carnivore companions, we take extra care in producing this treat and great pride in knowing that we are putting forth a healthy superior product that your pets will go crazy for.

      I have been buying the Bonita flakes for at least 5 years. Magic and I are very satisfied!!!!!
    • Valerie from Las Vegas, NV

      My cats go crazy for these treats. As soon as I open a bag I'm surrounded by kitties meowing and rubbing up against me. They're also great when one of my fur babies isn't feeling well. I just sprinkle a little on their food and it entices them to eat. Best treat ever.
    • Andi from Eastsound, WA

      My female cat adores this and the male likes it a lot! This is the best price point that I've found for this very expensive treat. They sell a human grade version at our local Co-Op for $8 an ounce. I'm not sure what the difference is, they look just the same to me. Shipping was very quick too. Well worth treating your cat(s) to a gourmet experience 💛🐈
    • christine from ridley park, PA

      Absolutely my kitties Tucker and Nicky s favorite! !! They come running and meowing when I pick up the pouch. A good healthy treat. Great fast customer service and Sandra and Peter are the best!
    • L Eddie from Las Vegas, NV

      The Bonito Flakes pouches are the treat my cats really love. There are several feral cats in the area that come to my house hoping I will give them some Bonito Flakes. Therefore Bonito Flakes are feral and domestic cat approved.
    • L Eddie from Las Vegas, NV

      Both my cats and several cats in the neighborhood LOVE the Bonito Flakes. Best treat ever!
    • Eddie from Las Vegas, NV

      I have six finicky cats but one item they all agree on is the Bonito Flakes. They love it as a "just-before_bedtime' treat. It is great for the cats and at a great price also.
    • william from Portland, OR

      Great pricing on the product that I want, and absolutely the fastest shipping possible.....
    • William G from Georgetown, TX

      Zoey has to have her Bonito flakes morning, noon, dinner and at bed time; mid morning and mid afternoon are OK too. Great product.
    • Sheila Sullivan from New York, NY

      My cat Shadow adores these!
      She is missing more than a few teeth,; it's so nice to give her a treat she can eat!
    • Stephen from Phila, PA

      Great product. Our cats love Bonito Flakes for a treat. Best yet was the very quick delivery.
    • Vanessa

      Bonito flakes have been a staple in our cat’s treat drawer ever since they received some as a gift. They’ve always gone nuts for it. Even when we can’t get them to eat, a little sprinkle on their food works wonders. Our puppy loves bonito flakes too, and will do anything I say for some! They seem to enjoy these bonito flakes more than other brands because the flakes are nice and big. Most other brands sell you a canister of crumbs. Our kitties really savor these and seem extremely satisfied after we give them a pinch.
