Panama Pet Peeve #2 – Cat Treats

temptatin cat treatsMy cat, Elizabeth, moved to Panama with me.  She loves… LOVES.. Temptation cat treats.  But you can’t find them anywhere in Boquete or David.

I have been to every pet store to see if they can order them but have not had any success yet.

Whiskas cat treats are readily available but it is not the same, and Elizabeth knows it   Whiskas are soft and chewy.  Temptations cat treats are crunchy.

To solve the problem, I can get them shipped in from the United States or I just ask people to bring a bag when they come on a tour.


I was in Panama City all last week for eye surgery.  I went to a Riba Smith grocery store and found Temptation cat treats.  I bought everything they had.    The next time I’m in Panama City, I will stock up on Temptation cat treats again.  Riba Smith recently opened a store in Coronado and there is rumor that they will be opening a store in David soon.

Riba Smith is a little more expensive than other grocery stores in Panama but they do have a great selection  See what’s available and the prices at
