Tell All Tuesday: Who’s Eating What #ChewyInfluencer

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can you believe it? It’s almost Christmas!!! I’s just can’t wait. In t’ween tryin’ to ketch up on our visits, take care of mommy and nap, we’ve been shoppin’ hard fur the bestest gifts to put on our big Gift Guide next week. And yes, we’ve got ideas fur the whole family, men included…and no, they’re not ties, socks or underwear. Mommy said I’s needed to meow that so you all won’t worry. Ya’ know, cuz what could a house of girly’s know ’bout gifts fur men, right?. Sissy? Are ties, socks and underwear not good gifts?

          No Raena, there’s nuffin’ wrong with those things as gifts, but they’re not very creative. It’s like the gift one gives when they don’t know what else to think of. 

 

Hmmmmpht  Well, I’s can tell ya’ after seein’ some of the holes in mommy’s socks and drawers, I’s know she was thrilled with the new socklets awnty Cindy just sent her. Anyways, we didn’t pick any fur the menfolk. You’ll just have to stop by and check out the guide. We think we’ve got some pawsum picks that just ‘bout anypawdy would be happy to receive. 

 

          Me totally agrees Raena. But, that’s next week; today we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout this new food we tried the other day. 

 

We did sissy? I’s don’t ‘member tryin’ it, did you? 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of their new dishes

 

 

 

          Uh, well, why don’t we get to that pawrt after we tell everypawdy ‘bout the basics. Like, mommy would purrfur that we could eat a variety of things, at least every once in a while. You know, ya’ just never know what might happen in the future, so it’s always good fur us kitties to have at least a couple of options so we don’t have to go hungry. As most of ya’ know, we eat freeze dried raw. 

 

Mommy would purrfur we eat all raw sissy.  

 

          That’s true Raena. But, mommy is happy enuff that we eat freeze dried raw, so she doesn’t push us…least not yet. Anyways, she would like to find a couple of quality canned foods that we could eat just in case. 

 

In case of what sissy? 

 

Miko poultry variety pack cat food

 

 

 

          Uh…Don’t ask me, me just knows she would like it. So, when Chewy offured to let us try the Miko Grain free Poultry and Tuna Variety Pack, she jumped on it. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout Miko.

The ingredient list doesn’t look too bad. The variety pack, 12) 3 oz. cans comes in poultry and tuna or seafood and chicken for $14.99. You can also buy them in single flavor packs for the same price. As you can see from our fotos, the contents of the can look like shredded or pulled meat in water/oil. There’s purrlenty of juice in the cans. Mommy says the juice contains some oil based on it’s appearance. She also said that the longer it was on the plate, it appeared to oxidize. Three hours after opening the can and putting it out, the liquid had the appearance of dirty dishwater. I’s sniffed it from afar, but wouldn’t go near it. Furthermore, I’s wouldn’t touch mine’s regular food either till it was removed from mine’s mat. 

 

Dezi and Raena check out the Miko cat food

 

 

 

          As you can see by me’s foto, me did check it out and then me looked over at Raena’s pawtion, just to see ifin hers might have looked better or somethin’. Me sniffed it a few times and then ate me’s regular dinner. It smelled kind’a funny. Me would have normally at least lapped up the juice, but this one just wasn’t fur me. 

 

 

Raena looks at dinner and Miko cat food Uh, you need to move that stuffs so I’s can eat mine’s dinner now.

 

 

 

 

Me either sissy. And the fish formula’s have the bad vit. K ingredient, Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex. Since we don’t eat fish, this wasn’t a very big concern fur us, but should be fur the fish eaters. While this food doesn’t make the cut in our house, Chewy has purrlenty of things that do, and at great prices. They have pawsum customer service peeps and free speedy shipping on all orders of $49.00 and more. There’s a low flat rate shipping charge for all other orders. And they have products for the whole family.

Chatting Cats: Is Someone Baking In The Bathroom

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can I’s just tell you, it’s really smokin’ hot here. Seriously, it’s been in the triple digits as mommy calls it. Y, It’s gonna be at least 110° F today. Mommy says that’s so hot you could fry an egg on the hood of a car in the shade…ifin ya’ had an egg and a shade that is. 

 

Dezi and Raena lay on the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Raena, are you meowin’ stories again? Me doesn’t ‘member hearin’ mommy say anythin’ like that. 

 

Well sissy, maybe that’s cuz you were UTB (under the bed) hidin’ out from the lawn crew. 

 

          How many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’ out. Me’s pawtrolin’ fur intruders. Anyways, enuff ‘bout all that, it’s hot every where right now. Haven’t you seen our furiends complainin’ ‘bout unseasonably hot temps where they live? 

 

Raena lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

Yep sissy, I’s have seen that. Still, I’s wanted to meowmble. Mommy says that no matter what the weather is, we’re gonna complain, so I’s just gettin’ mine’s complainin’ in fur today since we’re still in a state of limbo as far as everythin’ else is concerned. Ya’ know, we’re s’posed to meow ‘bout litter and the pawtty box today. I’s don’t know why, since you seem to be usin’ the piddle pads more and more lately. What’s wrong with you? Are you sick, or mad, or are you just tryin’ to create more work fur mommy? Huh, what’s up with ya’? 

 

Dezi sits on a Chewy box

 

 

 

          Never you mind Raena. Let’s do meow ‘bout litter and pawtty boxes. Everypawdy knows, mommy purrfurs natural litters fur us and we, bein’ cats, purrfur the unscented variety. And, most everypawdy knows, we were Blest with a Litter Robot last Christmas which you think is the greatest thing since sliced rabbit with gravy. ‘Course, mommy knowin’ the rules and all kept our great corner box up and runnin’ too. Ya’ know, just in case there was a line to the pawtty box one meownin’. The thing mommy luvved ‘bout the Litter Robot was that we could still use our favorite natural litter, SwheatScoop.

 

Raena sniffs the bag of Swheatsciip

 

 

 

Yep sissy, I’s too young to ‘member such things, but mommy says she ‘members when SwheatScoop furst came out and she had to order directly from the company. Back then it came in generic brown boxes and the shippin’ costed more than the litter itself. There were only 2 sizes, big and bigger. Anyways, lots of time has passed since then and SwheatScoop now comes in their very own bags and several different sizes, 10lb, 25lb and 36lb; we received the 10lb bag. They even have a couple of different furmulas, Fast Clumping and Multi-Cat. They range in price from $9.69 to $24.99. Let’s see what Chewy has to say:

Description

Fill your litter box with sWheat Scoop Premium+ Natural Clumping Wheat Cat Litter, an all-around better litter. It uses the power of natural plant extracts to eliminate odors instead of harmful chemicals, which is better for you, your pet and the environment. The secret is exclusive Noble Ion Technology that infuses wheat enzymes with noble ions to neutralize litter box odors. It’s extremely effective odor control. This high-performing litter has no added dyes, perfumes or dust and is 100% biodegradable. Clumps are fast-forming, firm and compact for easy scooping. sWheat Scoop Premium+ works well for single- or multiple-cat homes.

Key Benefits

  • Three times more powerful odor control for a breakthrough in odor elimination.
  • Three times faster and firmer clumping for easy scooping and a mess-free home.
  • Noble Ion Technology infuses wheat ions with noble ions to naturally break down odors.
  • Recommended by veterinarians with no added dyes or perfumes. Great for single and multi-cat homes.
  • Eco-friendly, all-natural litter is made from wheat and is 100% biodegradable.

          We purrsonally don’t think there’s much of a difference t’ween the furmulas ifin any, so we always buy whichever furmula’s on sale or the cheapest at the time. Some of mommy’s favorite features of sWheatScoop is that it clumps well, only smells when heated by a fresh urine depawsit and is flushable. That heated smell we’re meowin’ ‘bout is like a loaf of bread and goes away quickly. So long as kitty covers their business, it controls odors very well. Me will tell ya’, it’s not a lightweight litter. The bigger bags are heavy, so bein’ able to have it delivered right to our door is a big plus. Now, ifin we could only get the Fedex man to scoop. MOL

the white stuffs just a little baby powder mommy shook in there to aid in odor

control. She scooped the smelly right when it happened, so the smell lingered a minute.

 

 

You’re a laff a minute today sissy. I’s like the sWheatScoop litter. Since It’s all natural, it’s much safer fur me to clean off ifin it gets stuck to mine’s bloomers. Bein’ wheat, an actual food product, anythin’ that makes it into mine’s tummy by accident, just comes out the other end. ‘Course, ifin you’re ‘lergic to wheat, it might be a purroblem…just meowin’. I’s not, so I’s give the sWheatScoop 4 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

          Me fur sure likes it better than any of that clay stuffs Raena. Me gives it 4 paws up too. And, cuz we buy the big bags, we always get a great size Chewy box to play in. Me knows mommy gives 2 thumbs up or she wouldn’t keep orderin’ it after all these years. Meowin’ of orderin’, Chewy’s a great place to shop fur all your pet’s needs. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up and a low flat rate speedy shippin’ on all orders below. They have a great auto ship program that lets you save an additional 5% and makes sure you never run out of your pet’s faves. But don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay any auto ship up to 24 hours befur shipment.

Nice little clump, easy for scooping

 

Disclaimer: We received a bag of sWheatScoop in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

That’s right sissy, and they have the bestest Customer Service peeps ‘round. They also have great boxes and packin’ paper…just meowin’. Ya’ know, that means a new toy every month. MOL Guess we better get off here and see ifin we can help mommy. She’s still purretty stressed, so we’re tryin’ to take really good care of her.

Raena on cat tree in red dress

Yep, I’s was stylin’ in mine’s old new dress and tryin’ to win the Chewy fashion show. Mommy had gotten the dress when I’s was a little girly. It didn’t fit me back then, but mommy said it reminded her of somethin’ called a hoe down complete with square dancers. I’s haven’t been to any hoe downs or square dances, but I’s do like mine’s dress.

 

          Raena, what are you meowmblin’ on ‘bout?

 

 Raena looks at camera while wearing her red dress,

 

 

I’s was meowin’ ‘bout mine’s dress I’s wore fur the Chewy fashion show last month. You ‘member, you wanted me to win so we could get a great surpurrise box from Chewy?.

Dezi walks away while mommy shows off her new mug

 

 

Well sissy, I’s won. And OMC what a pawtastic box full of goodies we got. Y, They even sent mommy a little sumpin, sumpin. You know how much mommy enjoys her coffee and even hot chocolate in the winter time. Well, now she has this great kitty mug to drink them with. Mommy said to tell everypawdy, ifin they were lookin’ fur a nice sized mug fur themselves or to give as a gift, look no further, this mug is huge and adorable. I’s gotta agree, it really is cute. Anyways, we got some amazin’ goodies all fur us. We got some of our favorite freeze dried treats, and some of those Kittles I’s like. 

 

 Dezi checks out all the wwinnings from the fashion contest

 

 

          Me saw some of those tasty bonito flakes too. But, me’s favorites in the box were the Yeowww nip toys. We shared with Gizmo and his fursibs durin’ their recent visit, and now we got 2 new Yeowww toys fur ourselves. Ya’ can’t beat a blessin’ like that fur sure.

 

 Raena checks out all her winnings from the Chewy fashion contest

 

 

That’s the truth sissy. And, we got a new wand toy too. I’s can’t wait to play with mommy. Ya’ know, we think any kitty would be happy with any of the items we got. With Christmas not too far away, our peeps might be lookin’ fur some great Christmas gifts to spoil us with. you can get everythin’ from our winnin’ box right there at Chewy.com

 

 Dezi sniffs wand toy from chewy winning box

 

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Me bets all the kitties in the shelters would luv any of the goodies we got too. As a matter of fact, they might even come outta their shells a bit and get adopted quicker. We don’t normally post on Fursdays any more, but we fur sure were thinkin’ ‘bout #RememberMe yesfurday. So many anipals will die in shelters without ever knowin’ the luv and wonderment of a furever home. This makes us so sad. But fur the Grace of God… 

 

 Dezi and Raena atop the liberty cat tree with Yeowww toy

 

 

Oh sissy, mine’s heart just breaks thinkin’ ‘bout all those sweet anipals who never get the chance to be luvved and adored like we do. Purrlease, do everythin’ ya’ can to help those anipals find luvvin’ furever homes. Ifin ya’ can’t adopt yourself, share, share and share again. You never know who might see your posty and be lookin’ fur a furry luv of their own. We really wanna say fank you to Chewy fur our pawsum box. And fank you to everypawdy who has saved a life and shares to save more lives. Looks like this rain ain’t never gonna let up; but, we have new toys to play with. Let’s go play befur the physical therapist gets here to evaluate mommy fur her new wheelchair.
