Blest Sunday: It’s Finally Here

(Dezi looks up from her breakfast and yawns. She looks around and sees Raena and mommy A yawning too. Mommy A takes a sip of her hot steamy coffee and Raena begins to cover her breakfast with the imaginary “dirt”, toys, tissue paper and anything else close by before heading to the cat tree for a bath and some bird t.v.. Dezi takes a few more bites of breakfast before meowing.) Me sure hopes we can get some sleep tonight.

 

 Raena yawns while laying in the stroller

 

 

 

          (Raena stretches and meows) Me too sissy. I’s know we stayed up fur a good reason, but I’s sure am tired. You’re so tired you didn’t even run when the thunder clapped outside.

 

Dezi sits pretty in front of door

 

 

 

Thunder? Was that thunder? Me thought that was the neighbor again. Ya’ know, she’s been keepin’ her toddler grandson and he keeps escapin’ and comin’ over here to bang on our door or play in mommy’s garden.

 

          I’s don’t know why he’d wanna play in the garden, sissy. Everythin’s dead now. Did you see him push his face against the door tryin’ to peek inside?

 

Yep Raena, his face was more smashed than yours. Who knew the human face could do that? MOL

 

          Yeah sissy, (Raena shakes her head) fanky fank the cats he didn’t come in. He was puttin’ everythin’ in his mouth. Can you ‘magine how slobbery our toys would’a been?

(Dezi and Raena shudder.) Fank you mommy, fur not openin’ the door. MOL  Hey, what did you think ‘bout the surpurrise box mommy got? 

 

 

 Raena checks out box from Valentine

Oh MeOW What a box!!!

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s luvs it. Mommy was so x’cited. She cried and cried. She said they were the happy tears, and I’s sure they were. She also did a little jumpin’ ‘round. She only does that when she’s happy. That Valentine and awnty Kerry sure were sweet to send mommy a new bag. Somewhere along the way, it got delayed, but when it furinally got here, mommy was thrilled. What most peeps don’t know ‘bout mommy, is that befur her accident when she worked, she had a bag fur every occasion. Ya’ know, they were really nice bags, mommy was a bit of a bag snob she says. I’s don’t think mommy could be snobby ‘bout anythin’, but, she says that’s what peeps call it when you’re a bit purrticular ‘bout somethin’.

This is such a pawsum bag, ain’t it Raena?!!

 

 

 

Me ‘members some of those bags Raena. Unfurtunately, a few bags got peed in by sick kitties; and some kitty, not me, chewed the straps off one of her bags. Fankfully, we’re good kitties, so mommy’s new bag’s in no danger of bein’ chewed by us. We’ll just have to watch out fur the neighbors grandson. MOL What a blessing mommy got. Fank ya’ll bunches, we all luv the new bag.

          We didn’t think our week could get any better, and then the fone rang with some really x’citin’ news. Mommy’s been fallin’ out of the bed and crawlin’ ‘round the house fur over 6 months waitin’ fur our new wheelchair. Ya’ know, uncle Sam doesn’t get in a hurry to do anythin’. But, it’s furinally happened!!! The new wheelchair is furinally here!!!

 

Dezi checks out the new Powerchair

Oooooh It’s got a nice soft cushion too.

Yep Raena, that’s why we’re all so tired and sleepy. Well, that and the weather. Travis the wheelchair man wanted to come out furst thing in the meownin’ to deliver mommy’s new wheelchair. Since mommy can’t walk in the meownin’s and she can’t reach the door knob from the floor, we had to stay awake all night. Mommy won’t teach us to unlock the door, so we’re no help. We think the neighbor thought she was getting’ one too, cuz she’s been bangin’ on the walls at all hours of the day and night fur the last couple of days. And then, the weather went from below zero one day to the low 70’s the next. Now, ifin that don’t throw ya’ into a tailspin, me doesn’t know what will.

 

 Raena lays in the new Powerchair

It’s soft alright sissy. I’s luvs it.

 

 

 

          That’s all true sissy. But we sure are happy to have a wheelchair again. We’ll be meowin’ more ‘bout it in our Service Cat posty’s startin’ in February. Believe it or not, we got a ton of questions ‘bout addin’ a new powerchair when the last one broke. In the meantime, we’re just feelin’ really blest that mommy doesn’t have to crawl ‘round in the meownin’ any more. WooHoo

 

 Dezi climbs on the new powerchair

Hmmmmm Me thinks the arms just might be wide enuff

fur me to stand on.

 

 

 

Fur sure Raena. We’ve had another week of outta this world blessings. And, another week with the mostest pawsumest furiends in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ a pawrt of our lives. We luv ya’ll sooooooooooo much. We wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the blessings in your lives. 

 

 Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap and squints for the camera

 

 

 

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We’ve got some great wheelchair plandids and mommy’s new bag shots fur ya’. I’s think we oughtta finish brekky sissy and go take a nap with mommy. We’ve gotta take advantage of the quiet while it’s here.

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena. See ya’ll soon.

Service Cats: Feline Nutrition: The Obligate Carnivore

MeOW Welcome to Service Cat Monday. What started out as a simple Training day post quickly evolved to encompass all things Feline. It’s the one day a week, we focus on educating and writing fur the humans in our lives. We wanna thank all of you fur your questions, comments and readership this past year. Keep the questions comin’. ‘Member, the only dumb question is the one not asked. This will be the last Service Cat Monday post of the year 2017. But, don’t worry, this series will return fur 2018. We haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of the complexities of the Feline Behavior (pun intended). That bein’ said, let’s get the business outta the way and get on with today’s post. The followin’ post will be written in human English fur reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat Monday posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Trainin’ Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. And to offur insight into your questions about Feline Behavior. Ifin you have any questions or topics you would like us to cover, purrlease let us know in the comments section or send us an email. When asking behavioral questions, purrlease be as specific as pawssible. And, ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links at the end of this post. Always remember, Training is all ‘bout Repetition and Rewards.

We get asked a lot about food and proper nutrition for us kitties. As most of you know, we eat a raw freeze dried food and are adamantly opposed to feeding any kitty a kibble only diet. And as most of you also know, we have semi scheduled feedings and don’t believe in leaving food out all the time for kitty. What we mean by Semi-Scheduled, is that we eat at specific times a day. Altho’ breakfast is served when mommy can get up and make our plates, dinner is almost always served within a hour of the same time each day. Those plates are available for a limited time and then empty or not, they disappear until the next meal time when they are replaced with a fresh plate of food. One comparison you can make between kitties and humans is, if you can sleep without getting up to eat, so can we.

 

Dezi watching Raena while they eat

To understand kitty’s nutritional needs, we must look at the feline roots, the wildcat from whence we came. We believe in creation, and that God created the first cats. However, you want to see it, Cats exist and are among the few True Carnivores. We call them Obligate Carnivores, meaning they MUST eat meat to survive. The dictionary says this about Obligate: Biologically essential for survival. Cats Can Not live much less Thrive on a vegan or vegetarian diet. A cat’s teeth are designed to rip flesh and chew meat, muscle and tendons. The cat’s tongue is barbed to help it remove fur and feathers from their prey. Cats lack the physiology required to break down or digest vegetation, starches and/or some carbohydrates.

 

Veggie clip art

 

 

Cats’ require certain Amino Acids such as Taurine, Tryptophan and Arginine that is found in animal flesh. While the human body is capable of breaking down carbs and producing certain Amino Acids on it’s own, the cat must get those from their food. A cat who doesn’t get the required nutrients in their diet, may go blind, suffer muscle loss, other illnesses and even die. A cat in the wild, will also get moisture from their prey. Cats consume blood, predigested vegetation and other wet contents from their kill. This practice has led to a smaller liquid intake by cats and more concentrated urine. We’re all familiar with the overwhelming smell of cat urine. However, fresh water should still be available for kitty at all times.

 

 Meat Meal for pet food

(Meat Meal) Looks more like chicken feed than somethin’ us

kitties can sink our teethies into.

 

 

 

So, let’s take a look at Kibble. It’s a well known fact that the first three ingredients listed make up the largest part of a food/feed. Now we know every bag of kibble lists a moisture content. But, we also know anyone who has ever touched a piece knows there’s nothing moist about kibble. If you were to put a piece of kibble in a spoon full of water, the kibble would soak up all the liquid in no time. So, imagine what it’s doing inside kitty who never drinks their 8 glasses of water a day (mol). No, kitties don’t need 8 glasses of water a day, that part was a joke. But seriously, cats don’t always drink enough water, so when kitty eats something that will absorb any liquid around it, it’s a disaster waiting to happen.

 

 Veggie clip art

Some grain free options. Does a kitty look like a rabbit?

 

 

 

There are 2 basic diets available, regular and grain free. Grain free diets commonly include starches such as potatoes. As we pointed out earlier, cat’s generally Do Not have the ability to break these down. An inability to digest these starches in cats may cause kitty to become gassy, have diarrhea or bloat. Kibble may also cause kitty to gain weight and be at risk of becoming obese. Kibble only diets also increase kitty’s risk of Urinary problems. For many years now, it’s been known that a lot of the pet food manufacturers use less than desirable ingredients in their kibble and even canned feeds. The laws protecting animals and ensuring the quality of food are too often not enforced. Animals that have been euthanized or died from illnesses/disease are often used in the manufacturing of pet feed. Even companies that charge outrageously for their products are guilty of these practices.

 

 Dezi eats Raena's left overs

Me hopes mommy doesn’t ketch me cleanin’ Raena’s plate.

 

 

 

Even more alarming than the above is what happens to a kitty when kibble is left available at all times. Contrary to the belief that kitty will go hungry overnight, or while you’re away at work, we kitty’s were never intended to eat 24/7. And believe it or not, we can even last a few extra hours when you’re running late. Most kitties can safely go without a meal every now and then without any harm or danger to their health (Only healthy cats, not those affected by an illness or disease. Please speak with a VET before fasting any cat who is sick). Let’s talk about kitty’s sniffer and food for a minute. When kitty smells food, a chemical reaction happens that causes kitty’s body to produce needed acids to break down the food for use. When food is left out all the time, kitty’s brain is on overload. The body can quit producing those acids or over produce them which can lead to illness, obesity and even death. A hunting cat isn’t always successful and may not eat every day. We’re not suggesting you fast kitty, but we are saying, kitty doesn’t need to eat all day and night.

 

 Dezi and Raena eat

Dry Freeze dried Primal (not recommended by manufacturer).

Now we luv the gravy. 

 

 

 

A few years ago, me was a grain free kibble eating kitty. Until that is, me got sick and mommy learned me’s urine pH was off the Alkaline charts. Me was on a Semi-Scheduled feeding, but me’s body just couldn’t break down all those potatoes. Me was stubborn and didn’t want to give up me’s kibble. Thankfully, mommy’s more stubborn than me and knew what was best. While we don’t recommend it, mommy began to feed me the Freeze Dried Raw food…DRY. Freeze Dried raw should be reconstituted with water or broth. However, me just wouldn’t eat it, so mommy left it as is. About a week later, mommy began serving me’s freeze dried raw on a damp/wet plate. A week later she used her fingers to sprinkle water across the top. The next week, she added a spoonful of water and so on. Now me can’t imagine eating a food without that delicious gravy. The more the better me meows.

 

 Raena watches Dezi sniff the Thirsty Cat fountain

 

 

 

We also added water fountains to make drinking more appealing and fun. After much research and many calls to pet food manufacturers about their ingredients and manufacturing policies, we eat and recommend the Primal line of foods. They truly use human grade ingredients. Yes, it costs a bit more than kibble or canned, but it’s the next best thing to mommy making our food herself. And, for those who don’t want to touch raw ingredients or need easy raw food due to travel, it’s convenient. Me’s urine pH is healthy and normal now, and Raena and me are generally healthy and happy.

 

 Dezi eats while Raena watches from the side.

Me’s lappin’ up the last of the gravy so mommy can add more.

 

 

 

If you’re not ready to make the Raw leap, canned food is the next best choice. It is a myth that kibble cleans kitty’s teeth. It is also a myth that a Persian cat and a Siamese cat have different nutritional needs or require breed specific formulas. That’s one of the craziest money grabbing schemes we’ve ever heard. All Cats are Obligate Carnivores and therefore require the same nutrition…MEAT. Not meat by products or meat meal made up of some unknown animal parts or plant proteins. Mommy says when deciding what meats to feed us, she likes to think about our wild ancestors. She asks the question, What kind of meat would kitty hunt for if left to their own devices? Very few cats actually fish. Most of a cat’s food sources come from land mammals who eat both meat and vegetation and supply kitty with all the nutrition he/she requires. 

 

 The Blessing Train

 

Well we do hope this has helped some of ya’. Obviously, this is a huge topic and there’s much more we could have added. So, ifin ya’ want us to expound more, let us know. Fur now, we’re gonna wrap this up and do some more Christmas purrep. Don’t furget to leave your questions, comments and/or topics below or send us an email. And, you can ketch up on any posty you may have missed by clickin’ the links below. One last thing, our Blessing today is Good Food and Nutrition. Fanks mommy, fur lookin’ out fur us.

 

Till the next time…………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s Me, RaenaBelle. Kittens!!!  Have we been busy or what?. 

 

 Dezi and Raena bathe atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          What are you meowin’ ‘bout Raena? 

 

Well sissy, me was meowin’ ‘bout how busy we’ve been. Ya’ know, tryin’ out all the new noms and stuffs?. 

 

          Yeah Raena, that has been fun. We do enjoy tryin’ new things. Weruva contacted us ‘bout their new impurroved gravy luvver’s line a while back. Knowin’ how much we luv gravy, mommy said we’d luv to give those noms a try.

 

 

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Weruva B.F.F. noms in exchange for our honest review. As always, we tell it like we see it. Weruva isn’t responsible for the opinions in this post unless otherwise stated. No money changed paws. We only bring products we have tried or use and think would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

 Raena checks out Weruva

 

Sure ‘nuff sissy. In honor of International Cat day which just passed and Healthy Cat Month which takes place next month, we thought this would be the purrfect time to purrticipate with Weruva’s launch of the all new B.F.F. line that will be Gluten, Grain and Carrageenan Free. The B.F.F. stands fur Best Feline Friend. We’re fur sure mommy’s bestest furiends, feline or not. And, you know how much all our pawrents worry ‘bout ingredients and us gettin’ purr-opurr nutrition. And cat pawrents go a step further and worry ‘bout whether or not us kitties are gettin’ enuff water/hydration. 

 

 Raena checks out Weruva

 

 

          Yep Raena, and me’s here to tell ya’ that not drinkin’ enuff can sure lead to some painful purroblems, like UTI’s (Urinary Tract Infections). But, as anypawdy who has a kitty knows, we can be a finicky bunch. So, not only should our food be nutritional and balanced, it better taste good, or else we won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. Anyways, Weruva sent us a great little variety pack to try out. Unfurtunately, it was delivered to one of our neighbors who happened to be in the hospital so we didn’t get it till this week. Once we got the noms, mommy and you purrceeded to check ‘em all out. As everypawdy knows, mommy doesn’t let us have any kibble. It’s full of unnecessary carbs our feline bodies can’t purrocess and can contribute to obesity and those painful UTI’s.

 

Raena checks out the WEruva

 

 

Not to worry sissy. The B.F.F line is over 85% hydration, what with all that gravy and such. Weruva also claims that each can/pouch contains shreds/chunks/bites of real meat protein that will entice and be appealing to our taste buds. Cats in the wild, and our big cat cousins get most of their hydration from the food they eat; so a kitty eatin’ dry kibble is missin’ out on that much needed hydration. The B.F.F. line comes in cans and pouches and sizes ranging from 2.8 ounces to 5 ounces. And they have both sea proteins and land proteins.

 

 Weruva BFF cat food

 

 

          That’s a good thing too Raena, cuz we don’t purrticularly like the sea purroteins. So, the furst plate we tried was Selfie Cam, chicken and lamb dinner in gravy. Check out the ingredients list offured by Weruva:

 

INGREDIENTS:

Chicken Broth, Chicken, Lamb, Tuna, Potato Starch, Guar Gum, Calcium Lactate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Niacin Supplement (Vitamin B3), Calcium Panthotenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Source of Vitamin K)

 

Dezi eating Wysong Archetype

 

 

 

          Now, as you all know our mommy checks out any ingredient she can’t purrnounce or doesn’t know ‘bout. So, she’s not happy ‘bout the source of Vitamin K, but said it was okay to try out the noms this time. The gravy tasted purretty good. At least good enuff fur 2 paws up. what ‘bout you Raena? 

 

 Raena eats Weruva

 

 

Well sissy, I’s wouldn’t really know ‘bout the gravy since you ate most of it. But the lamb bites were okay and what little gravy I’s did get was good. I’s didn’t care too much fur the second one we tried with all the punkin’ pieces. But overall, I’s good with givin’ ‘em 2 paws up too. As sissy said, the Vitamin K source is somethin’ mommy tries to avoid, so the B.F.F. won’t be a staple in our house, but mommy did say we could have some on occasion.

 

 Raena eats wet food

 

 

Hydration is so ‘purrtant fur us kitties that our humans must offen go to great lengths to make sure we get enuff. Adding a high quality wet food to your kitty’s diet is a great way to help keep kitty hydrated and chase away those nasty UTI’s. Don’t furget to check out the Weruva website and the new B.F.F. line of noms fur your favorite Best Feline Friend. I’s hear a nip toy callin’ mine’s name.

 

Till the next time………………………………………….Be Blest!!!

I Would Like To Place An Order

Meowllo everypawdy, me hopes you’re all rested up and ready fur a tale. You know me was tryin’ to think of somethin’ to get mommy fur Mother’s Day and thought orderin’ me and her a new helper would be a great gift; so me set out to figger out how to do just dat. Me had mommy call on over to da shelter in da “little city” ‘round here, and voila’, they had girly kitties. Well, me told mommy to get it together and let’s go look see.

Dezi cocks head to the side in thought

Me has a story fur you today

So yesfurday mommy gathered up some bagged kibble so we could donate it. You know, we don’t eat kibble in our house, but we had some from when mommy was tryin’ to help sis Lexi gain weight. ‘Pawrently kibble is really fattening. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track here. Mommy gathered up da donation stuffs and off we went. Shelters and rescues can always use donations, and it doesn’t always have to be money. Anyways, off we went. And let me tell you, with all da rain and storms we’s been getting’ lately it was hot. We found out last year da compressor of some sort is out in da car and so da air conditioner doesn’t work. And mommy’s ‘lectric window broke so it doesn’t roll down. Me wants to know what happened to da old fashioned hand crank windows? Cars shouldn’t be run by ‘lectronics and catputers. We all know how reliable they are. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track again; off we went.

 Dezi bright eyed looking out of stroller

We finally arrived and mommy got somepawdy to help her take in da donation stuffs. Then we were off to visit da kitties. Hmmmmmm Mommy, where’s da girlys?

No mommy, don’t stop, those are all boys.

Hey, buff boy, hush, me ordered up a sisfur. Over here mommy, me thinks da girlys are this way.

Mommy, quit cooin’ at dat buff boy and head this way.

(walks over to a small stand alone cage) Meowllo girlys, time to purr on da charm. You ladies need to look your bestest, me’s here to get a new sisfur and one of ya’ just might be her.

Here, mommy take this one out. She’s mewin’ meowllo to ya’.

Aaaaaaaw She’s really sweet isn’t she mommy?

Dezi's profile in stroller

Yes she is Dezi, but I think she just wants out of the cage. That doesn’t necessarily mean she wants to come home with us. (puts her back in the cage)

Mommy, we need to take all da girly’s to a room. Yep, dat’s ‘xactly what we need to do.

Um, where are we goin? No mommy, da boys were in here. Yep, there’s dat little buff boy again.

Put your paws back in dat cage buff boy.

Mommy, where are you goin’? He does dat to everypawdy. Didn’t you see him doin’ it to da peeps in here befur us?

Uh….Just put him back mommy, me ordered a sisfur not a stinky brofur. Just smell him, he’s got…well, it’s boy stink, mommy. Put him back.

Hey, buff boy, quit kissin’ me’s mommy. What are you doin’ now? Hey, don’t nuzzle me’s mommy’s ears. Dat’s me’s job.

Alright mommy, dat’s quite enough. Put him down.

Lookit, here’s a little girly and she’s goin’ nutso tryin’ to reach ya’. She’s purractically yellin’ your name.

Hey, girly, ya’ might not wanna throw yourself against da cage like dat, mommy might think you’re a little too wild.  And besides, you could hurt yourself. (mommy puts the buff boy back in his cage)

Dat’s it mommy, this little girly really likes us. Meow. she’s purractically jumpin’ in your arms. Hey, girly, calm down.

Oh look mommy, she likes to ride on your shoulders like me does.

Hey girly, don’t you be growlin’ at me’s mommy. What are you thinkin’? And dat hissin’ is really uncalled fur. Okay mommy, put her back.

Where are we goin’? She ain’t da one mommy, didn’t you hear her growlin’ at ya’?

Oh lookit, she can walk on a leash. Whoopee, like dat’s a big deal. There she goes, growlin’ again.

Mommy, they just can’t fill me’s order. It’s time to go. No mommy you don’t need to hold da buff boy again, c’mon, let’s just go home. Me’s tired and so are you.

 Dezi rests on the Liberty Cat Tree.

Well, da search is still on. There are fur sure some really cute kitties at da shelter, but none of them fit da bill. Or rather, would be a fit fur our house and needs. But we thought you might enjoy hearin’ a trip to da shelter from da resident cat’s purrspective. Mommy didn’t actually take me to da shelter with her, but she knows me really well. When she got home she was indeed exhausted and smelled of shelter stench but told me all ’bout it.

Luckily da shelter peeps were friendly, this has not always been da case with dat shelter. Most of da kitties looked fairly healthy; again, not something dat’s always da case. This shelter doesn’t have any VETs on staff and doesn’t treat or test fur illnesses. It’s kind of a survival of da fittest atmosphere. Mommy didn’t take fotos, cuz she didn’t initially know what she would be walking in to and unfurtunately all da litter boxes were full and everykitty had a bad case of da runs; includin’ da adults. Mommy cleaned a few da bestest she could while she was there, but mostly they just laid in it. It’s very sad and made mommy cry…a lot.

Anyways, join me tomorrow fur somethin’ really special, and member me talked ‘bout havin’ a give away? Well Canadians and Americans get ready, and purrlease stop by. Me thinks you’re gonna like it.

Do you donate to shelters or rescues when you can?

How do you feel about your local shelters?

Does Your shelter work to keep the animals healthy? 

    

Till da next time………………………………Be Blest!!!

Can You Tell What’s In The Can

Well it’s another miserable Monday and we’re all still here. We kinda went AWOL this weekend cuz sis Lexi wasn’t duin’ so good. Late last night she finally pulled out of it a bit and wanted to eat. We was so happy. Me dusn’t really unnerstand what’s goin’ on when sissy be havin’ a bad time so mommy not only has to take care of sissy, she also has to comfurt me. She duz a gweat job but it leaves her totally exhausted. Anyways back to sis Lexi’s eatin’.

logo.20130121chewy

As #ChewyInfluencer’s we received a gweat variety pack of Tiki Cat Gourmet Carnivore canned cat food this month free of charge in exchange fur our honest opinion. As ya’ know, free or not, we always tell it like it is. We’s only ever tried da chicken and duck so we were excited to get to try more flavors. We got a 12 pack of 2.8 ounce cans. Da chicken and duck we like so much was included along with beef, turkey and fishies includin’ tuna. Furst let me tell ya’ dat when you open a can of Tiki Cat, you wuld never know you be lookin’ at cat food. Inside each can is shredded, cut and/or sliced pieces of real meat in juices or a consommé and no stinky smell. Meat is da furst ingredient in every can and there’s no carrageenan. So since sissy hadn’t really eaten all weekend, mommy gave her a can of da Tiki Cat fur dinner last night. Me was purrpared to let her have me’s can too cuz me wanted her to get full and me had a can at breakfast.
