Tell All Tuesday: Weruva Slide N’ Serve

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’re growin’ fins and gills and scales. Not really, but it sure feels like we are. Fur sure we’re feelin’ bored and blue. They say that’s what happens when you don’t get enuff sunshine and happy days. 

 

Dezi and Raena together

 

 

 

          They do Raena? Who’s they? 

 

I’s don’t know sissy, I’s don’t question mommy. And she said they say, so that’s good enuff fur me. She also said they say that daylight lamps and artificial sun can help with the thunderstorm blues. 

 

Dezi and Raena play

 

 

 

          Well Raena, guess it’s a good thing we’ve got one of those daylight lamps. Altho’, me doesn’t think that’s why mommy bought it all those years ago. Me thinks it had somethin’ to do with usin’ less ‘lectricity. Me’s purretty sure a little exercise might help too. You know, like the kind you’ve been gettin’ chasin’ that fly ‘round the house? 

 

Raena sits on cat tree

Where’d the fly go?

 

 

I’s tellin’ ya’ sissy, he’s multiplyin’. I’s know I’s caught him more than once. Y, I’s even caught him on the fly once. MOL Get it? I’s caught the fly on the fly? 

 

          Oh yeah Raena, you’re a laff a minute. Anyways, we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout these new nom pouches from Weruva that we got to try. Ifin you’re a pate’ kitty, lissen up, cuz we think you’ll luv these. They’re called Slide N’ Serve pate’ and they come in 8 different flavors including fish free, chicken free and mixed proteins and 2 different sizes, 2.8 ounce and 5.5 ounce pouches. Let’s see what Weruva has to say ‘bout ‘em:

 We received a variety pack with 2 of each flavor inside along with a couple of fun crinkle balls. Fanky fanks fur the crinkle balls, we luvs playin’ with ‘em. Pawrently mommy’s old eyes missed the whole pate’ thing, cuz we don’t really like pate’. But, mommy thought we oughtta give ‘em a try anyways. Since we don’t like fish, mommy opened us a bag of just plain chicken and slid it onto our dinner plate. It literally slid outta the pouch in 1 solid piece. Not a lick of gravy in sight. Anyways, mommy cut the blob in half and put it on another plate fur me. She used the spoon to separate it a little and served it to us fur dinner. We tend to eat heartier at dinner time, so mommy’s always tryin’ to introduce new noms durin’ that meal. You’d think she’d learn by now, but I’s guessin’ this won’t be the last time we see somethin’ new on our dinner plates. Mommy says it’s good to offur kitty a variety of noms so we don’t get too picky. Hmmmpht  What does she know. Ifin we’re eatin’ good, why mess with purrfection?

          Uh Raena, me thinks you might be headin’ off on a tangent, let’s get back to the Slide N’ Serves and Weruva. Ifin you’re a recycler, you’re gonna luv Weruva’s pawrtnership with Terracycle. All Weruva pouches including, BFF, Cats in the Kitchen and Dogs in the Kitchen are now recyclable. All you have to do is visit Terracycle.com/weruva and fill out the handy form. They’ll send you a postage paid envelope to put your empty pouches in and mail back to them.

That’s great sissy. I’s know lots of our furiends luvs goin’ green. You know, I’s joked earlier ‘bout mommy slippin’ us new and different noms at dinnertime, but good nutrition isn’t a jokin’ matter. Us kitties are obligate carnivores which means we must have animal based protein to survive and thrive. And, it’s not always easy to find good quality foods without all the unnecessary grains, vegetables and starches that we kitties don’t need. So, that’s why mommy’s always on the look out fur quality options. We don’t wanna stop with just keepin’ us healthy, we want you all to be healthy too. We try all these things so we can let ya’ll know ‘bout options you might like but haven’t tried. Just cuz we don’t like pate’ doesn’t mean all cats are the same. We’ve got lots of furiends who luvs a good pate’, and this would be another good one to add to your rotation.

 

 

We received the Weruva Slide N’ Serve Variety pack in exchange fur our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it. Weruva is not responsible for the opinions expressed in this post unless otherwise stated. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

No Way!!! Me sees the lawn crew. Me’s outta here.

 

 

 

          That’s true Raena. You can pick up your own Weruva Slide N’ Serve pouches at a pet store near you or online at Chewy or amazon. Chewy has them listed at $17.99 (2.8 oz) or $24.99 (5.5 oz) fur a case of 12. Uh Raena, me saw the lawn crew pull up. Let’s wrap this up, me has intruders to guard against. 

 

Raena plays with crinkle ball

 

 

 

Sure thing sissy. I’s just wanna add, that altho’ we didn’t like the Slide N’ Serve pouches, we donated them to our furiends at the Kitty Motel, and they luvs ‘em. We hear they scarfed these down like there was no tomorrow and asked fur more. So, ifin you like pate’, give these a try.

Blest Sunday: The Internet Can Be A Blessing

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday and we’ve been MIA since Wednesday. Me’s not sure ifin our furiends missed us or not, but we sure missed them. 

 

Raena sits in box

 

 

 

          Raena:  Yeah sissy, I’s guess we’re gonna have to start tellin’ peeps that we can’t post on mommy’s doctor days. Since the whole lease fiasco when the manager harassed mommy’s doctor’s office, she just gets so stressed out, she can’t help us do anythin’. 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

Dezi:  It’s not just that Raena, the doctor keeps messin’ with mommy’s medicines and blamin’ some imaginary rules. Anyways, we’ll just have to figger somethin’ out so we don’t just disappear. Maybe mommy can try to schedule our posty to publish without us bein’ here. 

 

          Raena:  That’s a good idea sissy. But, the last time she scheduled a posty to post without us, it totally disappeared into cyberspace. I’s don’t think she’s ever found that posty. Sometimes the innernet’s not so smart. 

 

Dezi stands in box

 

 

 

Dezi:  Well Raena, mommy says the innernet’s only as smart as the humans who purr-ogram it.

 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap and get love

 

 

 

          Raena:  Well sissy, ifin that’s the case, ya’ reckon mommy lost our posty and not the innernet? 

 

Luv ya' Dezi

Luv ya’, Dezi (one of the furst fotos we ever posted on me’s bloggy.)

 

 

Dezi:  Me’s not sure Raena, but me ain’t gonna be the one askin’. Anyways, we’re gettin’ off track here. Smart or not, the innernet’s been a big Blessin’ fur us. Cuz of the catputer and the innernets we’ve made loads of amazin’ furiends. Who would’a thought 5 years ago when we got our very furst catputer, we’d be where we are today?. You weren’t ‘round then, but me ‘members mommy was so cautious and ‘fraid that everypawdy was somepawdy other than who they said they were, and that everypawdy was out to give her a virus or somethin’, that she wouldn’t hardly spend any time on it. She fur sure never visited any fun sites.

          Raena:  Oh sissy, and the camera ya’ll had. (Raena shakes her head) The other day I’s saw some of the fotos and videos ya’ll posted back then. Those were pawful. Mommy fur sure ain’t no purrfessional when it comes to the foto takin’, but at least she’s learned a few things thru the years. And, the camera got better.  

 

Dezi:  That’s true Raena. ‘Course, mommy had cats and rats (cataracts) back then, so she had no idea how blurry and grainy our fotos were…the whole world was blurry to her. MOL 

 

          Raena:  MOL  (Both Dezi and Raena burst out laughing)  Yeah sissy, now she just blames it on old eyes. But ya’ know what? I’s don’t care how old mommy’s eyes are, I’s luvs her and am so Blest to have her as mine’s mommy.

 

Dezi get love laying on the chair arm

 

 

 

Dezi:  Me too Raena. We also got some goody Blessings this week we need to say fank you fur. We sure do ‘purreciate all of our furiends. and we wanna fank awnty Susan fur the green papers and her furiendship. 

 

Cheese gift from Cindy

Fanky fank you awnty Cindy. I’s luvs me some cheese.

 

 

 

          Raena:  We sure do sissy. And we wanna meow fanky fank you to awnty Cindy fur sendin’ us some goodies and new boxes to play in. You know how much we kitties luvs our boxes. I’s had a great paper bag I’s was playin’ with till mommy threw it out. She said it was all squished and wouldn’t stay open any more. Fur some reason she thought that meant it wasn’t fun. (Shakes head and looks over at the trash can) Sometimes mommies just don’t get it.

 

Dezi:  Well Raena, you did put that paper sack thru it. Me’s sure mommy will get you another one ifin ya’ liked it that much. Mommy always says ifin we’re happy then she’s happy. Me’s purretty sure we even have a box with a couple of those paper sacks ‘round here somewhere. ‘Member the time mommy thought she was gettin’ a really cool toy fur us fur the cheap, and it turned out to be a box of paper sacks? All ya’ gotta do is find that box. MOL 

 

          Raena:  Really sissy? I’s gonna go look fur it now. 

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

 

 

 

Dezi:  You do that Raena. Me’s gonna wrap this up. The truth is, there purr-obably are lots of peeps who aren’t who they say they are and want to take advantage of others. But, fur us, the innernet’s been a huge Blessing and opened up a world with a lot of amazin’ anipals and peeps that we would have never known without it. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life. And fank you all fur bein’ a Blessing in ours. 

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap getting love

Chatting Cats: Is Pine A Good Cat Litter

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure hope you all had a pawsum weekend. Things have been a little crazy ‘round here. And not even fur the reasons you might be thinkin’ ‘bout. Let me tell ya’ a little story. It all started a couple months ago when mommy ordered our review items from Chewy. We get asked all the time fur recommendations. Ya’ know the kind, what food is bestest? What litter do you use? And so on. ‘Course, we always tell peeps that we purrfur our natural litter over clay every day of the week and twice on Blest Sundays. Anyways, lots of peeps wanna know why we don’t like clay and even tho’ we don’t, is there one we would recommend over another. So, mommy decided we’d give one of those clay litters a try and she purromptly added it to our normal litter. (Raena shakes her head) Sometimes mommy ain’t the crispest cracker in the box.

 

Dezi looks at Raena from atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          RaenaBelle, what are you meowmblin’ on about? 

 

I’s tryin’ to x’plain what’s been goin’ on ‘round here lately sissy. Ya’ know, with you and the pawtty box? Ya’ know, how you quit usin’ it when mommy added that clay to it.

 

Dezi looks up at Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          Uh, that might have been the main reason Raena, but it fur sure wasn’t the only reason. Don’t furget to tell everypawdy what a pain you are. Jumpin’ on top of the pawtty box and whappin’ me’s tail while me’s tryin’ to do me’s business. Nopawdy or kitty wants to have your paws unner their hoohaw while they’re goin’ pawtty. Just ask mommy. ‘Member when you tried to stick your paw in the toilet while she was usin’ it? 

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

 

 

 

Anyways sissy, back to mine’s story. (Raena thinks a minute) Actually sissy, ifin ya’ stand at the openin’ with your tail flyin’ ‘round like a flag, you’re just askin’ to get whapped. You know we kitties can’t resist a wavin’ object. Anyways, I’s, bein’ the good girl I’s is, continued to use the pawtty box of course. Even when that nasty stuff ran every where and globbed on mine’s bloomers. I’s could see how frustrated mommy was havin’ to clean your messes several times a day. Fanky fankfully, as soon as mommy got paid this month she bought several jumbo bags of our good litter and completely changed out your favorite box. It took a while, but you furinally started usin’ the pawtty box again. And lo and behold, but what did Chewy offur us this month? More litter. Fanky fankfully, it’s the natural kind we like. You can see that review here. But wait, they also offured another natural litter. See Chewy has their own brand called Frisco. And, they have a natural pine and corn litter that mommy thought we might like, so she ordered a bag. We received a 28 lb. bag of Frisco All Natural Pine and Corn Clumping litter that sells for $20.99, $19.94 ifin it’s on auto ship. Let me tell ya’, it ain’t lightweight in the bag, so be sure ya’ have your muscles ready when it arrives. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout it.

After recent events, mommy decided not to place this is both of our pawtty boxes right off. 

 

          At least she learned from her mistakes, Raena. After all, me might be a little purrticular, but me does purrfur to do me’s business in the appropriate place.

 

Frisco Pine and corn cat litter

lightweight with some sharp edges

 

 

 

Sure sissy, whatever you meow. I’s heard stories ‘bout when you were a baby kitten and tried to… 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Just get back to the Frisco pine and corn litter. Nopawdy wants to hear your so called stories.

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

Mommy poured 1/4 cup water in the middle of the bowl. As you

can see, the water ran from the middle and only stopped

because it ran into the sides of the bowl.

 

 

 

I’s bet they do sissy. Wanna bet? Why don’t we ask ‘em?  Anyways, I’s gettin’ off track here. Where was I’s? Oh yeah, after openin’ the bag, which by the way has no way to reseal any unused pawtion, mommy decided not to put the litter in any of our pawtty boxes. It smells kind’a moldy and funky, altho’ we didn’t see any mold and I’s not sure what funk looks like. So, mommy placed some in our handy dandy bowl so we could purrform some tests. You know the ones, what’s the texture, does it make a good clump and is it easy and clean to scoop?.

So, what were the results you ask? Well, it’s dusty as a construction site and has some pointy sticky pieces that might be a little rough on tender paw pads. When mommy poured the 1/4 cup of water over the top, it ran everywhere, kind’a like the clay did. That means it would’a been stickin’ to mine’s bloomers. Not a good thing let me tell ya’. So, we had a clump and some fur mommy to scoop. The main clump started breakn’ apawrt the minute mommy tried to scoop it. You can kind’a see it in the fotos. Mommy overfilled the bowl and it’s really fluffy and lightweight so it kind’a scattered everywhere when she tried to scoop it. 

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

The center clump started breaking the minute it was lifted out of the bowl.

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, mommy made a real mess with this one. Me’s sure you were no help bein’ right unner her feet tryin’ to see everythin’. You know, you don’t have to be a pawrt of every little thing that happens. 

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

The dust is so lightweight, it spilled over the top of the bowl during the scooping process.

It’s also a bit staticky and some stuck to the edges of the bowl. Based

on prior experience we know that it would also cling to fur.

 

 

 

Yes I’s do sissy. You never know when mommy might need me. I’s just bein’ a good girl and lettin’ mommy know I’s there to help her any time, any way she needs me. Mommy shouldn’t have to holler fur us and wonder where we are. You know how much she hates that. Mommy’s always sayin’ she likes fur us to be where she can see us and hear us and touch us ifin she wants. I’s just doin’ what mommy wants me to do. She’d like you to do it too, but noooooooo, you were too busy bathin’ on the scratchin’ pad. 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and licks paw

 

 

 

          So what Raena. Me’s sure some of that litter dust got on me. Me didn’t wanna stink like that so me had to hurry and get it off. Mommy could still see me. Ifin she had needed me, me would’a been right there. But, me knew she didn’t need both of us t’ween her legs. Sometimes, your help ain’t very helpful. You just oughtta be glad you’re not the reason mommy falls so much. You know she ain’t no ballerina. Grace ain’t her middle name.

 

You better be nice sissy. I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re makin’ fun of her. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. We can’t speak fur odor control cuz we think the fresh outta the bag litter already stinks. It might not smell like cat pee, but it ain’t purretty let me tell ya’. And, we kitties actually purrfur unscented litter. Since I’s didn’t actually use the stuffs, I’s can’t meow to how it feels, but based on our tests, I’s can tell ya’ I’s wouldn’t like it. 

 

          Well Raena, me fur sure wouldn’t like it. Me doesn’t like it when me’s business runs all over the place and gets me dirty. That’s why me quit usin’ the pawtty box when that clay stuff was in there. Besides, all that dust and stench, is totally unacceptable fur any self respectin’ kitty’s pawtty box.

 

Mommy was quite disappointed sissy. She had really hoped this would be a good alternative to our regular litter. Ya’ know, in case she wanted or needed to add it to our rotation. She says ya’ never know what might happen and when ya’ might need an alternative. The size and purrice are right up there with other quality natural products and it’s made in the USA. We give it one paw fur bein’ made here at home, but we think they need to go back to the drawin’ board. It could fur sure use some upgrades. Our idea of a soft clump isn’t somethin’ that breaks apart the minute ya’ touch it. Can you ‘magine the mess you’d have with it breakin’ apawrt all the way to the trash or toilet to dispose of it? We’ve tried other Frisco purroducts that are top notch, but this one’s a miss in our opinion.

 

Dezi sits in chewy box

 

 

 

          But we still luv Chewy. They’ve got great customer service that’s available 24/7, and purroducts fur the whole family, furred, feathered, scaled, finned and skinned. And, they offur speedy free shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shippin’ fur all other orders. They even offur a great auto ship program that allows you to save an extra 5% off your orders and makes sure you never run outta your pet’s faves. Don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay anytime.

 

 

Disclaimer: We received the Frisco Pine and Corn litter in exchange for our honest review. As always we tell it like we see it. Chewy is not responsible for the opinions expressed here unless otherwise stated. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

Raena looking over her shoulders.

 

 

 

Don’t furget the great boxes you get with your orders sissy. Chewy has great boxes. We get a new toy every month with our auto ship. Ifin ya’ wanna check out other reviews this month, check out the Chewy blog hop here. C’mon sissy, let’s go play.
