Tell All Tuesday: Raw Boost #ChewyInfluencer

Hey everypawdy, it’s me RaenaBelle, comin’ to ya’ live from the Three Belles Ranch. Ya’ know, I’s been thinkin’ and wonderin’, am I’s really live ifin you’re not readin’ this till next week or even next year?

          Ya’ know Raena, sometimes you think and wonder too much. Sometimes, you just have to let things be.

But sissy, mommy says it’s good to think things over and make sense of stuffs.   

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, but that’s fur mommy to do, not us. We live a life of luxury, bein’ waited on paw and paw. Our job is to lounge and nap and help mommy when she needs us. It’s her job to think and wonder and figger things out. Another of our jobs is to try out new foods and stuffs. Like the Instinct Raw Boost Mixers we got from Chewy this month. They come in both cat and dog formulas. Fur us kitties they have chicken and  our favorite protein and the one we tried, rabbit. They come in a 6 oz. bag fur $11.99 – $12.27. The doggies have bigger bags. We’ll never unnerstand why companies make such small sizes fur us kitties. It just ain’t fair.

Instinct Raw Boost Mixers

 

 

 

          A purretty decent ingredient list, but the daily feedin’ recommendation is 1Tbsp fur every 5 lbs.. Really? Let me tell ya’, we’d be some really emaciated kits ifin all we got was 3 Tbsp of food a day. But, these do say “mixers”, so they’re s’posed to be added to food and not fed as a balanced diet. We also get a little peeved when we read “Made in the USA” but the purroduct contains ingredients from other countries. C’mon, what happened to truth in advertising? Okay, quit laffin’ and pick yourself up off the floor. That question was totally rhetorical.

 

Dezi eats freeze dried raw food

 

 

 

          Let’s do the taste test and see how the rabbit mixers faired. They have a small pellet shape and fur the most pawrt are a good size. Mommy could easily break the larger pieces into smaller bites, and they soak up water or broth purretty well. As you can see by the fotos, they didn’t make me turn away from me’s plate and me ate most of the pellets on me’s plate. Which by the way, was more than 1 1/2 Tbsp. (half the daily recommended amount). Me did leave a few, and it’s not like me to leave food on me’s plate. But, overall, me gives ‘em 3 paws up. 

 

Dezi eats while Raena licks lips

 

 

 

Kittens sissy, are you in a mood. I’s agree with ya’, but still…Anyways, even tho’ mommy cut off half mine’s face, clearly you can see that I’s ate mine’s dinner too. I’s fur sure think they should come in a larger size, but overall, I’s give ‘em 3 paws up too. Mommy agrees with all our points and said she gave ‘em a thumb up as well. They don’t contain any of those questionable ingredients, and we gladly eat ‘em, so that makes her happy. Price wise, they’re purretty much on paw with other freeze dried foods. Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a way to add some healthier food to your kitty or woofies diet, these mixers just might be what you’re lookin’ fur.

 

As always, we luvs shoppin’ with Chewy. They have purroducts fur the whole family, great customer service peeps and speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and above. They also offur speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. And, you can save an additional 5% by settin’ up an auto delivery program. Don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay at any time. And Chewy has the bestest boxes.

Tell All Tuesday: Your Pet’s Oral Health Is Important #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’re so behind it ain’t even funny. But, we’re tryin’ to get caught up on everythin’ and make plans fur the future. You know, I’s luvs makin’ plans. 

 

Dezi and Raena look out window from cat tree

 

 

 

          Like you luv hoggin’ the mommy heat at night Raena? Cuz you did it again last night. Me nearly froze while you were all splayed out next to mommy.   

 

Raenalays pretty on the cat tree

 

 

 

Hmmmpht  What mommy heat sissy? Didn’t you hear her chatterin’? I’s mean, she may not have any teethies, but she can still chatter. Besides, it’s not all mine’s fault. Mommy was so cold she kept scoopin’ me closer and closer and stealin’ all mine’s fur heat. I’s didn’t mind tho’, I’s luvs snugglin’ with mommy.   

 

Dezi lays in chair

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, me did see that. She even tried to steal me’s fur heat. But her legs were shakin’ so bad me vibrated right off. Me thinks it’s time fur the cozy ‘lectric blanky.   

 

Oooooh Yeah, I’s luvs the cozy ‘lectric blanky sissy. But it can’t take the place of a good cuddle with mommy. 

 

          You’re such a kiss up Raena. 

 

Raena lays in lap with mouth openSmell mine’s breath mommy. Does it smell nice?

 

 

 

 

Well, least mine’s breath is smellin’ better. Which reminds me, we need to tell everypawdy ‘bout this great supplement we’ve been usin’ called VetriScience Perio Support fur cats and dogs. As most of ya’ may ‘member, I’s had to get mine’s teethies cleaned recently when I’s got mine’s eyes fixed. Mommy says she luvs me no matter what, but that mine’s breath had lost that sweet kitten smell. And, at only 2 1/2 years old she was a bit disappointed that I’s already had plaque build up and needed a cleanin’ in the furst place. So, when we saw that Chewy was offurin’ a product to help with our oral health, we pounced on it. 

 

Perio Support pet supplement

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, oral health is very ‘purrtant. And after all that mommy’s been thru with her own teethies the last couple of years and havin’ sis Lexi who lost most of her teethies by the time she was 5, mommy’s very serious ‘bout takin’ care of ours. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Perio Support.

  • Perio Support is clinically shown to reduce the prevalence of plaque by 20% and tartar by 18% in just 28 days.*

  • This powder treat is easily sprinkled over normal meals, so it’s easy to use and easy to remember.

  • Powder is aromatic and tasty, so your fur baby won’t even know they’re eating something good for them!

Perio Support pet supplement

 

 

 

Mommy always hates products/supplements that get sprinkled over our food. Mostly cuz we’re really picky. So, when she opened the jar of Perio Support, she was a little nervous ‘bout whether we’d eat it or not. You’ll notice the description says it’s “aromatic”, and it is that fur sure. Mind you, it doesn’t stink, but it fur sure has a smell. And ifin a human can smell it, you know us kitties and woofies can smell it. One usually assumes a smell also means it has a flavor. But, mommy took the chance and sprinkled a bit over our noms and then added water as usual. What happened next was a pleasant surpurrise…we both ate our noms like nuffin’ had changed. Mommy isn’t brave enuff to taste it and we’re not meowin’ ifin it has a taste, but either way, ifin it makes it passed us picky girls, it’ll most likely make it passed your finicky eater. I’s gives it 3 paws up.

          Me too Raena. The VetriScience Perio Support is a 4.2 ounce bottle fur $15.00. We’ve not been usin’ it long enuff to see real results, but ifin it works as described, it’ll be worth the money. Mommy likes to split supplements t’ween our meals so they’ll all look and taste the same. Less chance of us turnin’ our noses up and not gettin’ what we need. As Raena meowed, we both ate our noms as ifin nuffin’ had changed, so mommy gives it a thumb up as well. She’s reservin’ the other thumb till she sees whether or not it actually works.

I’s sure hope it does sissy. I’s don’t wanna have another dental cleanin’ fur a while. Chewy has lots of great purroducts fur the whole family. And speedy free shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and up. You can even save an additional 5% off every order when you set up an auto ship. But don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay anytime. And, Chewy customer service peeps are available 24/7 every day of the year. I’s sure hope somepawdy takes them a nice Christmas dinner. Let’s wrap this up sissy, we’ve got lots of things to do and lots of furiends to see.

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? 

 

Dezi sits on scratcher watching Raena play in chewy box

 

 

 

          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.

 

 

Dezi peeks out from a chewy box

 

 

 

          Don’t furget some of the greatest boxes ever. While you’re there, check out the holiday shop. Ya’ just might find a gift or two to put unner the Christmas tree.  

 

Raena peaking out of a chewy box

 

 

 

We need to check out the Christmas shop ourselves sissy. Anyways, let’s get outta here and do some shoppin’ fur our Gift Guide. We’ve got a few more gifts to choose. 

 

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