Meow Well, this month has just gotten away from us. Are you all feelin’ like that too? Since mommy had kinked up her neck and couldn’t hardly function, we kinda gave her yesfurday off. We tried visitin’ a few of ya’ but mommy just couldn’t really type well and since we still don’t have those opposable thumbs, we agreed to let her rest and give her extra massages and luvvin’. So today we need to do some business. We’re purroud to be Chewy Influencers and luv tryin’ out new and even old things to tell you all ‘bout. We’ve got somethin’ today, we know a lot of ya’ll are gonna luv.

Mommy is always on the look out fur a high quality, good fur us wet food to supplement our meals. So when we saw the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings Savory mousse this month, we couldn’t wait to give ‘em a try. You know we’ve heard this food refurred to as “kitty crack”. In a good way of course. That simply means that kitties everywhere luv it. So mommy headed over to take a look at the proteins bein’ offured. Now me must purrface this by meowin’ that mommy’s eye sight isn’t the bestest. Most of ya’ know this, cuz we sometimes complain ‘bout the black and white fotos, or smaller purrint. Mommy has trouble makin’ out the shapes without the contrast of color, and the small purrint kinda runs together. So, when she furst looked at the the name on these Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings, the word “mousse” appeared to mommy’s old eyes as “mouse”. (shakes head) Oh me’s poor mommy. MOL
Sur-purrisingly, mommy was a little on the happy side ‘bout that. Her eyes then focused and she realized that wasn’t mouse at all, but indeed, mousse. The Purrfect Pairings come in 6 different flavors and are a whipped mixture with goat milk to make that mousse texture. Much to mommy’s chagrin, all 6 flavors contain Tuna Fish. As you know, we don’t get much fish here, but mommy decided as a little treat every once in a while, this would be okay. Since tuna was in all the flavors, mommy decided to go all out and we got the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings Savory Mousse with Tuna and Goat Milk Grain Free Cat Food Cups, 2.75 ounce. They come 6 to a case fur $8.34 and are also gluten free. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout these delectable treats.

Can you believe mommy’s never had a mousse? Well, she hasn’t, so she didn’t really know what texture this food would be till she opened the cup. Mommy decided to offur Raena and me a half cup each fur our mid afternoon snack. Mid afternoon snack is code fur Treat Time, that we usually eat on the cat tree and without plates. So to say we weren’t quite sure what to do with this “treat” is puttin’ it mildly. Uh, Where’s the freeze dried bits mommy? That was the question Raena and me were askin’ when we looked at our plates. So, mommy took the plates away and decided to offur it as a meal instead.
Dinner time rolled ‘round and again, mommy offured Raena and me a half cup each. Sayin’ me is picky, is an understatement. Me’s down right Finicky with a capital F. Ifin me doesn’t like the look, smell, or anythin’ else ‘bout somethin’, me doesn’t even want it near me. Mommy watched carefully with camera in hand, as me smelled the plate of tuna mousse. Me looked up at her and walked away. Mommy purromptly retrieved me and offurred me a bite from a spoon. Mommy thought the texture looked similar to baby food or a butter spoon mixture and that me might lick said spoon and learn how tasty this plate of tuna is. Yeah, NO. Me wasn’t havin’ it. Did she think me walkin’ away was an invitation to shove somethin’ in me’s mouth? Well, it wasn’t. Mommy relented and fixed me a purropurr plate and focused on Raena.
She sure did sissy. That old flashy box was purractically in mines face. Nonetheless, I’s investigated that whipped dollop on mines plate. Furst I’s went in fur the smell. Then I’s tried to cover it up. Mommy removed the toys from mines plate and put me in front of it yet again. I’s looked at her and then you and down at the plate again. I’s took another sniff and then went in fur the lick. Yep, a lick not a bite. There wasn’t anythin’ on that plate to bite. The Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings are lighter than a typical pate’. A mousse incor-purrates air bubbles to make the texture light and airy. That certainly explains the texture of these Purrfect Pairings.
I licked several more times befur abandoning mines plate. Mommy says I’s looked a bit confused like I’s wasn’t sure ifin I’s had gotten anythin’ to eat or not. I’s did go back to the plate fur a few more licks and then I’s just moved on to sis Dezi’s plate fur a more substantial bite of food. I’s just not that fancy of a kitty. Give me a plate of solid bites instead of a plate of air. I’s know lots of kitties luv pate’ type foods and even more like tuna. So I’s would meow that you’d purrobably luvs this food. Fur that reason and the fact that there aren’t any of those questionable ingredients, I’s’ll give the Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings 2 paw up.
Fanks Raena. Me agrees, 2 paws up from me as well. The Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings are grain free, gluten free and don’t contain a list of questionable ingredients, so they’re fur sure on the list of good foods that be good fur ya’. No kitty likes everythin’, so just cuz this didn’t tickle me’s fancy doesn’t mean lots of you won’t like it. Ifin ya’ give it a try, let us know what you think. Me can think of several of ya’ right now that would luv these Purrfect Pairings. Mommy said she was disappointed that every flavor contained tuna, but that seemed to be prevalent in a lot of the foods from Solid Gold.

Meow Welcome everypawdy. Do you suffer from achy joints? Is old man Arfur-Itis visitin’ ya’ more and more? Do ya’ have a few extra pounds ya’ just can’t seem to get rid of bearin’ down on your spindly legs? Do ya’ look at the top of the cat tree with longin’ and settle fur a lower shelf? Has your got us and go, got up and went? Well, ifin ya’ said yes to any of those questions, we might have just the thing fur ya’. Bein’ purroud Chewy Influencers, we get to try pawsum purroducts every month and tell you all ‘bout them. Today, we’re gonna tell ya’ ‘bout a great joint health supplement, Cosequin.

As always, we only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our friends and readers.
Me is a 7 year old 30 – 35 pound Ragdoll Service Cat. Now me’s not overweight; we Ragdolls are just normally large kitties. There are other breeds that be rather large as well. Thing is, even tho’ we’re not overweight, we’re still luggin’ all that weight around with every jump up or down, climb or zoomy we make. That has an affect on our joints over time, and we might start feelin’ it a little earlier than some of the smaller breeds. But let me tell ya’, doesn’t matter your size, breed, or species, old man Arfur-Itis comes to visit all of us at some time or another, just ask mommy.
Us kitties are notorious fur hidin’ our pains. So what do you do as our human caretaker? Well, ya’ keep an eye out fur those tell tail tale signs: a small limp, not as many zoomies, lower/slower jumps, less play and all ‘round activity and/or more naps. Ifin ya’ see any of these signs, kitty/doggy just might be sufferin’ from old man Arfur-Itis visits’. Of course you should check with your VET anytime you suspect there’s a purroblem. It’s confurmed, you’re beloved anipal is sufferin’ from achy joints and you want to give them somethin’ to ease that pain.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been acknowledged by the medical community as bein’ helpful fur those achy joints. Nutramax has several formulas available fur both kitties and doggies. We tried out the Cosequin joint health supplement for cats. We received a box of 30 capsules which cost $8.96. These capsules are intended to be opened and sprinkled on our food. Me will tell ya’ that mommy’s initial reaction was not pleasant. So much of Feline medicine is based on what works fur Canines. Most doggies will eat anything no matter how bad it tastes. Us kitties…Not so much. And ifin you ever taint our favorite noms with medicine? Yeah, we’re not eatin’ that again. MOL Let’s take a look at what Chewy says ‘bout the Nutramax Cosequin Supplement fur Cats.
#1 vet recommended formula provides powerful joint support
With a blend of manganese, glucosamine and chondroitin
Recommended by veterinarians to support bladder health, a major concern for cats
These capsules can be broken apart and sprinkled on or mixed with your cat’s favorite wet food
Helps maintain healthy joints to keep your furry friend happy and healthy
Now what’s contained inside those capsules:
Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Water, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide(Color), FD&C Red #3, And FD&C Blue#1.
Now let me break down those active ingredients fur ya’. Each capsule contains a minimum of 1mg of Manganese, 125mg Glucosamine Hydrochloride and 100mg of Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate. Dosage size is based on the size of the animal. Fur me, it takes 2 capsules a day; 10 pounds and under would be 1 capsule. That means the 30 capsules we received would last ‘bout 2 weeks. The box claims it will take ‘tween 4 – 6 weeks to see results. And once the desired response has been achieved the dosage can be cut back to every other day fur maintenance. You may increase the dosage as needed.
Now, let’s get to the testin’. Against mommy’s better judgment, she opened said capsule and started sprinkling on me’s food. She soon realized that like most “sprinkle/mix on food” supplements me would have more medicine than food, and that was only one capsule. So mommy stopped adding after ‘bout a third of the capsule. Then, she gave it to me to eat. Yeah, No. Me wasn’t havin’ any of that. Me instead, stole sis Raena’s food and mommy had to make her another plate. Mommy really wants to make sure me’s joints are healthy, so fur the next dose, mommy mixed me up a little “Butter Spoon”. Mommy offen hides nasty medicine in a dab of butter. Most kitties will gladly lick a “Butter Spoon” clean. So it was no surprise when me licked up that “tainted” butter like it was the last butter on earth.
So me would rate the Cosequin two paws up. Me didn’t take it long enuff to really see any results, so we can’t speak to that, but me did gladly take each “Butter Spoon” dose fur the next 14 days. Ifin you have a really finicky kitty, we definitely suggest you NOT add this supplement to their food, but rather find another medium to administer it, such as butter, baby food, olive oil, maybe a treat pocket or the likes. Raena’s not yet a year old, so she didn’t try the Cosequin at all, but she did have a blast with the box. Cuz mommy was able to get me to take the medicine, she gives it a thumb up. We’ve heard great things ‘bout Cosequin and feel it might actually work ifin you take it as directed.
As me said earlier, Nutramax does make several formulas and sizes. Fur our pawcket book this would get a little pricey over time. But you all know, mommy would do whatever she could to make sure we kitties have what we need. So all in all, we would recommend the Nutramax Cosequin joint supplement fur Cats or Dogs.
As always, we fank Chewy.com fur allowin’ us to try a great purroduct. You all know we luv our Chewy boxes and shop there regularly. We have noms, litter and supplements on auto-ship, so we don’t have to worry ‘bout runnin’ out. And when we get blest with gifts of noms or litter, mommy can go in and skip, cancel or delay any auto-ship we have. Chewy also offurs speedy free shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and over and a speedy flat rate fur all other orders. They also carry just ‘bout everythin’ you might need fur all the anipals in your household so be sure to check ‘em out. And Chewy has the bestest Customer Service ‘round as far as we’re concerned. So don’t worry, you can shop with confidence. And don’t furget the pawsum boxes and packin’ paper. Ya’ get a great toy with every shipment. MOL

Meowllo everypawdy, and Monday too. Yep, it’s another miserable Monday but me has somethin’ yummy to tell ya’ ‘bout, so dat makes it a little better, right? As pawrt of da Chewy blogging family we get to try different purroducts each month and tell you all ‘bout them. And this month was no different. Mommy chose one purroduct with each of us in mind. Of course we both would eat either purroduct. Dat bein’ sed, mommy chose fur me da Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Duck Minis Cat Treats.
Me likes duck, so mommy thought this would be a good choice. They are freeze dried in little pellet shapes. Most are bite size fur da majority of kitties; but they are easily broken up into a smaller bite or crumbled to put over a meal. One thing to keep in mind with these purrticular treats is dat they contain other ingredients besides just Duck. Here’s da ingredient list:
Duck (including ground duck bone), turkey, turkey liver, turkey heart, pumpkinseeds, carrots, apples, butternut squash, ground flaxseed, montmorillonite clay, dried kelp, broccoli, apple cider vinegar, salmon oil, mixed tocopherols, rosemary extract, blueberries, dried chicory root
Me is purretty picky ‘bout da size of me’s bite and shape too. Mommy offered me a couple of these as a treat, but me didn’t show any innerest. So she added them to me’s noms and after breaking each bite in two, me gobbled them down. They are purrlenty tasty. They also come in chicken fur those of ya’ dat like a less gamey bird. Here’s some key benefits taken from da Chewy.com site:
- 100% freeze dried raw ingredients including real duck, turkey, carrots and apples
- Great taste and health benefits
- All-natural with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
- Grain-free and gluten-free
- No corn, wheat, soy or fillers
- Only two calories per piece
- Made in the USA
So me gives these all 4 paws up. They taste good and be filling. Now me will say dat you purrobly don’t wanna be addin’ water to these, they don’t reconstitute very well. They be a little spongy, and dat’s after a few hours. Yep, takes dat long. So what did mommy think ‘bout these treats? Let’s ask her.
Thank you baby. I’m really glad you like them. Since changing your diet, I’m trying to keep a variety of proteins in your plate. I like that there are no preservatives, corn, or grains inside them. And I really like that they are made here in the U.S.. As with most cat foods these days they do include a multitude of veggies that you don’t need, but that’s in almost every food these days. So all in all I give the Instinct Raw Boost Minis Duck treats 2 thumbs up.
Fank you mommy. Dat’s rare fur you to give somethin’ both fumms up; so me guesses me will be havin’ more of these in da future. You can get your own at Chewy.com. They be on sale right now. They come in a 2.25 oz bag, and da duck be $7.19 and da chicken is $7.99. Course ifin you add them to your auto ship you can save a little more. They also make these fur da doggies. As always, Chewy offers speedy free shipping fur all orders over $49.00 and a low flat rate fur all orders less than $49.00. And Chewy has da bestest Customer Service reps ‘round. You’re never stuck with a purroduct your anipal won’t eat or use, so you can shop with confidence. You can also edit your auto ship at any time. Me’s joinin’ up with da Golden Woofs fur da Chewy blog hop where you can find all da Chewy bloggers monthly reviews.
Disclaimer: We received free products in exchange for our honest opinion. Dat didn’t sway our review at all. Neither Chewy nor Nature’s Variety are responsible for the content of this post. We only bring you items we use or have tried and think would be of interest to you our friends and readers.
Well me will wrap it up now, me’s gotta go eat. Da Instinct Raw Boost minis were a big hit. Ifin you’re tryin’ to switch your kitty from kibble to somethin’ more healthy, these would make a great transitional offering. Course they would also make a great treat.
Do you (or your anipal) like freeze dried treats and food?
Do you (or your anipal) like game birds like duck?
Till da next time……………………………..Be Blest!!!
