Well we sure hope you enjoyed our Service cat posty yesfurday. Yes it kulda been worse. MOL Anyways, we have sumfin’ pawsum to tell ya’ ‘bout today so get yous caffeinated drink of choice and pull up a chair. As part of da bloggin’ team fur Chewy we get to try out a lot of gweat noms and sumtimes toys and gadgets. We are so blest. We don’t get any green papers fur our reviews, but we do get to try out sum amazin’ purroducts. and this monff was no different. So let me tell ya’ ‘bout what we got besides da gweat Chewy box.
Inside dat box was a whole case of Ziwi Peak Rabbit and Lamb canned cat food. Let me tell ya’ they don’t skimp on size eever, each can be 6 whole full ounces. Now there be sum mixed infurmation out there ‘bout Ziwi Peak Cat food so let me tell ya’ a little bit ‘bout it. Da ‘Daily Fresh’ canned cat food be made wiff 100% natural raw meat and contains none, zero, zip, nilch of those controversial ingredients like da carrageenan. Ziwi Peak mirrors da wild-prey diet dat fits a cats carnivorous needs. Remember it’s made from raw meats to mirror da wild prey model, so it duz contain bone. It’s high in protein and fat from honest to goodness real meat. Fur dat reason tho’ you may wanna innerduce it slowly, specially ifin your kitty has been eatin’ a lower quality food. Such natural goodness kuld upset kitties tummy a little. But not to worry it’s not cuz da food be bad or nuffin’ like dat. In fact, Ziwi Peak was included in a test of 1.759 cat foods and came out in da top picks list. You can view dat list and da testing involved here. So now on wiff da eatin’.
Sissy and me really like rabbit and lamb is a real delicacy fur us, so mommy was sure to choose da rabbit and lamb furmula fur us. Our box arrived a few hours afur dinner time and we kuldn’t hardly wait. Since sissy and me have been eatin’ high quality high protein diets there was no need fur slow innerductions here. So when dinnertime finally came, mommy opened da can and put sum in our plates. Of course sissy got her plate furst, but me was meowin’ up a storm from da livin room fur meez plate. Mommy wants me to tell ya’ dat it duz have a very strong odor. But dat’s to be spected from game animals. Me also oughtta tell ya’ dat it contains all da vitamins and minerals we cats need so it’s nutritionally balanced. Da texture is similar to a pate, but there are “bites” fru out.
Dezi youz be takin’ too long to get to da likin’ or not part. I know youz gotta tell peepz ‘bout da nomz but they really wanna know what we fawt; don’cha’? I gotta tell ya’ I lubbed it!!! I put my head down and stardid nommin’ rite away. It waz so delishuz. We don’t show ya’ empty playtz in our reviewz cuz well um we ain’t reviewin’ our dishez. But we fawt you oughtta see juzt how good I fawt it waz. So I gibz it a awl pawz up. Dat’z 4 pawz in kayze you waz wunnerin’. Don’t furget to skroll over da fotos below to see what I’z gotta say.
Well fank ya’ Lexi, meez glad you liked it. And what’s better, you continue to like it. Always a good fing wiff a picky CKD kitty. And this food actually be good fur kitties wiff conditions like sis Lexi’s or IBD, Urinary Crystals, Pancreatitis, Food Allergies and more. so you might wanna check it out fur yourself. Now dat sissy fast furwarded to da likin’ stage guess me will tell ya’ what me fawt ‘bout it. It was Yummmmmmmmmy. Me gives it 4 paws up too. So what did mommy fink?
As Dezi told you earlier, it does have a very strong smell. That is to be expected from game animals, so I just hold my breath while preparing it. lol I also added a little water for Lexi’s as it is a bit thick and she likes a little gravy with her meals. Because the girls like it, the ingredient deck is easy to read and contains only good quality meat, organs and the necessities and how it faired in testing, I have to give it 2 thumbs up as well.
Fanks mommy. You can get your own by visitin’ Chewy right now. It comes in a variety of proteins so surely there’s one your kitty will like. But never fear, Chewy will always take care of ya’ ifin your kitty dusn’t take to it.

Well as you can see by da title of meez posty you are all in fur a service cat story today. And it all took place yesfurday. Really it started even afur we woke up, but we can’t really tell ya’ ‘bout sumfin’ we slept fru, right? MOL So anyways, there we was all cozy and warm wiff da lectric blanky and down blanky and da fuzzy soft blanky me has suckled to not so soft anymore soundly sleepin’ and suddenly mommy sez, “Girls, we gotta get up now.” Even tho’ she spoke in dat soft wake us up voice, it thundered fru da silence of da meownin’ wiff it’s urgency. It was da gotta get up voice dat meant mommy had to visit da pawdee box room and fast. (Fur all our new readers, mommy can’t move anything below her neck in da meownin’ time till her muscles and nerves warm up. She can’t walk till she takes her medicine and it kicks in, so we are respawnsible fur gettin’ her movin’ and drivin’ da wheelchair to da pawdee box room when we wake up) So sis Lexi and me skipped stretchin’ and duin’ all we kuld to avoid steppin’ or pushin’ on mommys belly; sumfin’ you don’t wanna do when she needs to visit da facilities, started massagin’ hers arms and legs. When all of a sudden…well…
Sissy musta had da same urge as mommy cuz afur we kuld even blink she stood up, stomped on mommys belly and headed down da steps to da pawdee box room. Not cool sissy. Now mommy was turnin’ yellow; and a bit green wiff envy dat sissy at her age kuld still move so fast. Anyways, fankfully by dat time mommy’s arms was startin’ to move a bit. Me has never pushed mommy into da chair by meez self afur and she was still on hers back, so this was gunna be tricky. But me was gunna try. So mommy started to reach fur da bars to pull and me started pushin’ on mommys side. Oooooops, maybe not da bestest place to push cuz me thinks mommy turned another shade of yellow. And outta da blue Lexi came flyin’ back up da steps and right on to mommys tummy/bladder to help. A little girl power later and we was wheelin’ to da pawdee box room wiff a happy mommy. You can just use yous magination fur what might have gone on in there cuz we be purroper Belles and it ain’t pawlite to talk ‘bout such things in mixed company.
Anyways, afur ya’ know it we was headin’ down da hall to da kitchen so mommy kuld fix us bwekky and have her a cup of coffee. We always stop off and crack open da front door just so we can see outside. So mommy pulled da door open and da three of us peeked round and…”No Way!!!” All our eyes was big as dinner plates. Mommy quickly shut da door and slowly opened it again. And again da three of us peeked round da door to look out. OMC S N O W!!! We all sat back in da chair and mommy sed, “Girls, we should just go back to bed.” We didn’t but it did sound like a good idea. Me hopped off da chair and onto da cat tree fur a closer inspection of da fallin’ white stuff as mommy made our bwekky. Sis Lexi went on into da dinin’ room and hopped on da table to wait fur her plate. She didn’t care at all ‘bout all da fallin’ snow. Anyways, mommy sed meez title was posed to be sumfin’ ‘bout da oopsies service cats sumtimes makes, but me sed Service Cats Never make oopsies. Bad idea or not, we must have meant to mush mommys bladder. We are cats after all, and cats always mean what they do, right?
Well snow and all weez very blest to have da warmth and coziness of our home and each other. We are also blest to have all of you. Fank you fur bein’ our furiends. Mommy still hasn’t finished meez Cardwood Derby car fur Cat Scouts. She got a reprieve and it’s gotta be finished and posted by this Furiday, so weez gunna be busy this week tryin’ to finish up. She made a real mess wiff meez furst box and weez now workin’ on box 3. Me hopes this one works cuz me dusn’t fink any of da neighbors have any more boxes we can have. Maybe meez posty shulda been ’bout mommy’s oopsies and not those of Service Cats.
Have you or your cats/anipals ever made a oopsie of sum kind furst thing in da meownin’?
Till da next time………………………………………..Be Blest!!!

Dezi and Lexi
Meowllo everypawdy. As you can see by da title, we know you wanna know how sis Lexi’s VET pointment went. As a lot of you know she started showin’ signs dat sumfin’ was wrong December of 2014. Mommy took her to da VET in early January of 2015, and she was diagnosed wiff Chronic Kidney Failure. At da time da VET told mommy sis Lexi needed to eat da RX diet and sold her a hunnerd dollar bottle of Azodyl and claimed he was purracticin’ holistic medicine cuz of da Azodyl. Azodyl isn’t a medicine, but rather a supplement. And then he sed “We’ll just make her comfortable for what little time she has left.” Mommy asked what he meant, and he replied, “ I’ve had a few patients that died within weeks and few lived for a few months. By the time we diagnose this 75% of the kidney function is gone and they just don’t live very long.” Well as many of ya’ know mommy hates those RX diets in general, so she refused da noms and came home to do research. She also wasn’t acceptin’ dat sissy was gunna die any time soon.
Mommy went ‘bout learnin’ everythin’ she kuld ‘bout this disease and it’s treatments. She felt validated when she discovered da research dat those RX diets are based on was itself based on what worked fur dogs and refurmulated fur cats and only purrfurmed by Hill’s. All da other RX diet furmulators base their diets off da “old” Hill’s research. Well as most peeps know cats and dogs are not da same, and just cuz sumfin’ works fur doggies dusn’t mean it will work fur kitties. Mommy found lots of studies dat purrmoted high quality protein and low phosphorous diets fur CKD cats. So mommy implemented what she found in research along wiff tons of purrayers. Our VET was and is not happy wiff mommy’s choices of treatment, but he’s learned it’s bestest to just not argue wiff her cuz she’s gunna do what she thinks is bestest fur us no matter what anypawdy sez.
Unfurtunately CKD kitties are prone to UTI’s because their urine is so dilute from all da water they dwink. And da normal course of antibiotics given fur 2 weeks dusn’t work, they really need to take da medicine fur 3 – 4 weeks to truly get well. So now dat we be all caught up, sissy got a UTI round Christmas time. We kuldn’t reach our VET but we were able to get Lexi started on sum antibiotics none da less. We finally touched base wiff da VET who sed he needed to see her at da beginnin’ of da year. So mommy and Lexi headed fur da VET on Furiday. When he finally came in da room, sissy sed he looked shocked. So me thought she shuld tell ya’ ‘bout her own visit. Take it away sissy.
Lexi: Fankz Dezi. Yep he shur nuff looked shocked when he saw me. He asked mommy all da questions ‘bout how I waz duin’ and ifin I waz better. Then he started squishin’ me all over. He told mommy dat my kidneyz, liver and bladder waz awl da right size fur a healthy kitty. Nuffin’ waz swollen or shrunken. My furz waz kovered in white flakez cuz I habz a dandruff and dry skin purroblem and we don’t habz a humidifier anymore. It broke a kupple yearz ago and mommy juzt hazn’t had da green payperz to buy another one. She had hoped our fountains wood add sum humidity to da air, but alas, not so much. Anywayz az sissy told ya’ mommy beez treatin’ me her way stead of heedin’ da VETz recommendashunz. I lozt a lot of weight when thiz awl star-did, but I’z been holdin’ my own fur da lazt year. I’z not lozt any more weight, and da VET kuldn’t believe it. He didn’t spekt me to still be alive, much less lookin’ and feelin’ good.
When he asked mommy when she had stopped my antibiotikz, she sed she hadn’t. She told him dat everything she readz tellz her dat I shuld get them fur at leazt 3 weekz and maybe even 4. So he sed, “Well that’s fine. I think she probably had a bladder infection and I treat those for 3 weeks instead of 2.” You know he’z one of those dat can’t ever admit dat he duzn’t know everything and dat mommyz research iz valuable. Anywayz, he then star-did manhandlin’ my head and I skooted back towardz mommy. He grabbed my paw to pull me back towardz him and I’z gave him da hisssssssss of disapproval and he let go. MOL He sed I shur had a lot of spunk fur my kundishun. And then he told mommy, “Well keep doing what you’re doing, she’s looking good. I don’t know how, but she’s looking good.” Mommy, Dezi and I attribute my duin’ so good to God and all da purrayerz and mommyz research and treatmentz. I shur waz a happy kitty when we finally left dat smelly place and all da white coatz behind.
We went to Wally World to get Dezi and me sum treatz. Dat place waz buzzin’. I’z not member da lazt time I saw dat many peepz in one place. Mommy waz tryin’ to drag da buggy and da stroller down da ailez and a man kame up behind us and sed, “Lookz like you’ve got your hands full.” Mommy smiled and sed, “Just about.” He walked past us and then turned to look my way and himz jaw dropped. He sed, “That’s a cat!!! I thought you had a baby in there.” To which hiz wife responded, “that’s her baby.” Mommy smiled, I meowed and we all went on ‘bout our shoppin’. It stormed da whole way home, but I was glad to be back home with da lektrik fireplace and awl my stuff and Dezi. It waz kold out there. When we got inside I star-did runnin’ round and aktin’ like a kitten again. I so lubz to go placez wiff mommy. I juzt wish we didn’t habz to go to da place of evil.
Me was glad y’all came home too sissy. And me is sooooooo glad you got a good report from da VET. We are so blest dat you’re still wiff us and feelin’ good. And we are so blest to have so many pawsum furiends who help us and purray fur us. We do have a little bad news today, but everything will be okay. Mommy has carpal tunnel and every once in a while it really acts up. Tryin’ to maneuver da stroller and da cart made mommy twist hers wrist and so it’s hurtin’ really bad and she can barely use it. We will visit as soon as she can purr-opurrly type again. It took 2 days of peckin’ keys to write this posty, so she needs to rest it. We are feelin’ very blest today and everyday to be part of such a pawsum community. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. Meez gunna go join mommy and sissy and snuggle sum. It’s cold and rainy outside but weez all cozy and comfy in here. Hope you’ll join us next time when we take da Pet Blogger Challenge.
Do you always agree with your VETs recommendations? Tell us one blessing you are gwateful fur this week.
