Tewksbury, Massachusetts (July 1, 2008) - Cats who deserve a nibble of real meat jerky after a long hard day of lounging now have a NEW, delicious and nutritious offering: Wellness® Pure Delights™ from the Wellness® family of natural food and treats for pets.

Loving and responsible pet parents who want to treat their cats with healthy and wholesome treats instead of feline "junk food" can now delight the natural carnivores in their household with these purr-fectly cat-sized meaty bits of jerky. Pure Delights™ are made from top quality protein sources, plus just a few select all-natural ingredients that keep these morsels tender, moist and delectable to cats.

Each variety of Pure Delights - Beef Jerky, Chicken & Lamb Jerky, Turkey & Salmon Jerky and Turkey Jerky - contain over 90 percent pure meat jerky, select all-natural ingredients, and are grain free. With only 1 - 1.2 calories per treat, Pure Delights are the guilt-free, healthy way to treat your cat. As with all Wellness food and treat recipes, there are no meat by-products, wheat or wheat gluten, corn or soy, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives to be found on the ingredient list.

"At Wellness, we believe that natural foods and treats are the first step to a long, happy and healthy life for cats and kittens," said Deborah Ellinger, CEO of Wellness. "Pure Delights are made with the most nutritious, healthy and tasty ingredients that we ourselves would eat, because we believe pure love deserves pure treats!"

Pure Delights come in 3 oz. re-sealable pouches and are available nationwide at pet specialty retail stores and natural food stores. To find an authorized Wellness retailer, please visit
