    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.

      My cats go crazy at the sound of the bag the flakes come in- it is the highlight of their everyday!!! Anytime I head to the area where I give them the flakes they run, it is absolutely hilarious! They are so hooked on these flakes and the look I get when I run out is funny too!
    • Suzanne from Hazleton, PA

      My two cats absolutely love this
    • Bob from conway, SC

      I have been treating my 3 cats to this for years...they demand it! I have noticed an improvement in their fur..much softer and not dry or flakey. This is a great product, there are others,but, Cat-Man-Do is by far the best and is the only one I will ever feed to my cats. "Fishyflakes" and "Chicken chunks" are the healthy treats my pets crave! Thank you guys!
    • Marilyn from McCormick, SC

      Not only is the product one my cat is addicted to the service and care put in to this product is superb. When we first ordered the Bonito Flakes we had two cats and they both sat by the cabinet I kept the flakes in and just howled to remind me when it was time for their treat. Thus my husband and I started calling it "cat crack". Sadly our "big buy" passed away last year but we have not seen a big difference in the level of consumption so our "little guy" is cashing in on the additional goodies.

      You won't go wrong with working with this company as they stand by their product and are incredibly helpful should you have any trouble placing an order. Plus on the positive side you'll become a rock star to your pets!
    • Rosetta from Pacifica, CA

      Bonito Flakes are the favorite part of my cats day!
    • Roberta from Henderson, NV

      Great product very freash
      Easy to order
      Very happy overall ..kitties too !
    • Linda from Lodi, CA

      Dear Cat-Man-Doo,

      Thank you for this cat food product. My cat has 3rd stage kidney failure (renal failure) and as a result she has a low appetite. Some cats can die of starvation from this old age disease. I searched madly to find a treat that would not make matters worse for her but get her to eat. The tuna flakes are lower in phosphorous and a better source of protein than most cat treats on the market. When she is provided the tuna flakes as a appetite stimulant she eats more of her cat food. She has been happier and even plays with her toys. I'm so happy with your tuna flake product; I would give you more stars of satisfaction, if I could. Thank you again.
    • Stephan from San Anselmo, CA

      Great product, the cats love it.
    • Paige from Scotch Plains, NJ

      Great product, my kitty love it so much that we call it 'kitty crack'! The Cat-Man-Doo team is terrific and I always receive my order within two days, love them!!!
    • Donna from Calgary, AB

      Cat-Man-Doo consistently provides superior service! I place my order, immediately receive confirmation of the same and shortly thereafter an email when the product ships. The quality treats they provide are loved by all my kitties. I encourage everyone to buy any of the products provided by Cat-Man-Doo as they are all natural and your pets will love them! Thanks Cat-Man-Doo!
    • Harry from Ocala, FL

      My cat loves,loves these!
    • Kim from Waipahu, HI

      All my 7 cats just loves them. When they hear the package open they come running for it. If I gave them the whole bag, I think they would just devour the whole thing.
    • Kathy from Phoenix, AZ

      I don't DARE run out of the Bonita Flakes ....... EVER! My four cats would NEVER FORGIVE me! So, I suggest that once you purchase the Bonita Flakes for your cat(s) that you keep it stocked up for the long haul because your cats will be relentless when they know it's "TREAT TIME".
    • Kathryn from Glen Morgan, WV

      My cats absolutely love the Bonito Flakes! I can't put them out fast enough. When they hear me pick up the bag they come running. I will have to make sure I never run out. Thanks for making such a great product.
    • Lynne from Coupeville, WA

      I love getting this big bag of Bonito Flakes direct from the "kitchen" as my cats can't get enough. Cat-man-doo owner shared that adding a few drops of moisture to the bag keeps them intact longer, too. Shipping is quick and easier than driving half an hour to the store - for smaller bags. My cats and I say, "Thanks!"
    • Jackie from Hyde Park, MA

      My kitties can't get enough of the bonito flakes. I think they're addicted ; ).
    • Linda from Tinton Falls, NJ

      My cats just love this stuff. Not for meals, just for treats.
    • Lynn from South Glastonbury, CT

      I do not know a cat who does not love Cat-Man-Doo bonito flakes!
    • Michael from New Castle, PA

      We have created a monster. Our cat literally goes crazy for Bonito Flakes. He likes them better than anything else we give him. Including canned or pouches of tuna. We first bought some at a craft show and he liked them so much we looked online and found Cat-Man-Doo. Since then we make sure we never run out. Thank you Cat -Man-Doo! (I Think?)
    • MITCHELL from Harvest, AL

      Zazzle our cat loves the fish flakes so much she would eat a whole bag if you let her but Bongo does not care for them so try a small bag just to see if your cat even likes it first because you know how crazy a cat can be about what they like, we now order 2 large bags at a time for Zazzle .
    • Carolyn from Lowman, ID

      My niece introduced my feline to the Bonito Fish Flakes at Christmas a few years ago. He now begs for them. He brings me his soft ball and places it beside me to let me know he did good and he needs a treat. I make sure I don't run out by purchasing the 4 oz. bags. When I get low, I order on-line, and within 3 days they arrive at my door.

      My cats love these Bonito Flakes. If I let them, they would eat them all day. Buy these! Your cats will love you.
    • Toni from Wilton Manors, FL

      Cherry Rose lives for her tuna flakes. If I let her she would eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner.

      I am so happy I found these!
    • Jennifer from Edmonton, AB

      I cannot say enough about this company or their product. My cats are absolutely in love with the bonito flakes and I am absolutely in love with their customer service. I had a question I wished to ask them and I received a call back from the owner himself. He went above and beyond in addressing my concerns. In this age sometimes it is difficult to find a company that actually cares about their customers. Well these guys definitely care! On behalf of my little ones thank you, CatManDoo, for the deliciously healthy treats and on behalf of myself, thank you for being the epitome of dedication and commitment to your customers.
    • Paudie59 from Knoxville, TN

      Did you know cats love having a routine? Our cats, Samantha and Elouise (AKA Sam'n'Ella) live for the words, "C'mon, girls, fish flakes!" each evening. Those words signal the beginning of their going-to-bed routine. They come running and talking to "their" room to have their bedtime snack of fish flakes and to be put to bed. When Sam finishes her personal little pile of fish flakes, she goes to Ella's plate to see whether Ella left any. Similarly, Ella does the same, checking Sam’s plate. Neither EVER leaves any. My husband and I believe in equal opportunity access to goodies, as do our dogs, Murran and Bear, so they also get fish flakes prior to going to bed. There is nothing quite like fish-flavored bedtime kisses, from your dogs! Bottom line – my cats and dogs LOVE these fish flakes. Since this is just fish – no oil, no water – we have no concerns about giving too much.

      Great Stuff---My Cats Love It-------MEOW
    • Marilyn from McCormick, SC

      Since discovering Bonito Flakes as our "furry child's" favorite treat life has not quite been the same. Initially we had two cats and they both were hooked on this natural treat immediately. I wish so much I'd taken a video of them in front of the cabinet where we keep it as at first they'd hang out mewing and looking up at the top of the cabinet waiting.... anticipating those tasty ribbons of joy! It reminded us of addicts hanging out on street corners so we renamed bonito as their "cat crack".

      Last January we lost our oldest to cancer and the only joy Rudy has from that is there is more Bonito for him! In fact "Bonito" has become a call name. as normally Rudy is pretty good about coming when we call him but if for some reason he doesn't then all we have to say is "Bonito "and he'll come running from wherever his is. He is so in tune to the word that if we happen to mention it when he's close by then he'll perk right up as if to say, "did I hear Bonito?" He loves this treat and we have no problem giving it to him as it's all natural so we feel it has got to be healthier for him.than some of those with preservatives etc.As long as we have Bonito in our home we have a very happy cat!
    • Linda from Tinton Falls, NJ

      My cats just love it. They will sit by the cabinet when its snack time to remind me.
    • Francis from Blacklick, OH

      May cats love the Bonito flakes and want them all the time. The big bag is priced right.
    • Anna from Yuba City, CA

      My cats and the neighbor cats love this treat. My cats were hooked on their fist bag. We've been buying it now for the last 5 years. I can see the joy it brings to the cats, therefore it brings me joy.
    • Kiki from Oregon, WI

      I keep my bonita flakes in a big jar and my two girls can hear me take it down and are in the kitchen before I even get it open. They love it!!!
    • Donna, Calgary AB from Calgary, AB

      This is the second time I have ordered this product. First, my kitties LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Second, the service from CAT-MAN-DOO is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Prompt delivery and awesome customer service!! In my first order, they threw in some samples of other favourite cat treats, which were a second best hit with my kitties I WILL be ordering from them again !
    • Charles from White Marsh, MD

      I have been getting the Bonita Flakes for my cat for over 5 years. I have never been disappointed with the quality of the product or the prompt service.
    • Janet from Springfield, VA

      My kitties are completely and utterly addicted to the bonito fish flakes! Great company with great customer service!
    • JR from Wichita, KS

      Thank you for the prompt shipping! I was running dangerously low just before I was going to be out of town and I didn't want to leave a grumpy cat with no mollifying bonito.

      I've bought a variety of bonito flakes in the 10 years I've had Ronin. She definitely likes the large flakes in the Cat-Man-Doo bonito. I like the fact that the Cat-Man-Doo bonito seems not to dry out as quickly as other products, so I can order the big bags.
    • Al from Buffalo, NY

      My cats love them! They're their favorite treat. Have to ration them.
    • Debbra from Livonia, MI

      I've been using Cat-Man-Doo for years.
      It has so many great benefits for your cat.
      It's healthy, a great treat, training aide, and a wonderful eating motivator for a cat with no appetite.
    • Carolyn from Lowman, ID

      After my niece introduced the Bonito flakes to my feline, he cannot do without them. He has a soft ball that he brings to me to beg for his fish flakes. It is a fabulous and nutritious treat, and I order them in large quantity so he doesn't run out! (-:
    • Linda from Fremont, OH

      I just cannot describe how much my cats love the bonito flakes. I get razzed a great deal about how particular or spoiled they are, but I just don't care. They are great companions and my biggest job is to not over feed them. They simply love and expect the Bonito Flakes daily. They have learned how to get the flakes. They jump up to where I store opened bags, and they paw the bag, while looking at me, or maybe giving a mrowr to get my attention. For Isabella, it's the appetizer, which she takes a few bites of before she eats the wet cat food. For Sir Galahad, the bonito flakes are the just before bedtime "tide-me-over" snack. I thank Cat-Man-Doo for a quality product.
    • Joy from Rockford, IL

      2 picky a small amount of Flakes amongst the dry kibbles and they gobble their food. Smells bad to people but the dogs are WILD about it. Rattle the bag just a little and they run for it!
