Is That Duck Or Turkey #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We didn’t fall off the face of the earth, or get swallowed up, or even whisked off by some tornado. Nope, nuffin’ so dramatic. Mommy had lots of human business to attend too, and no time fur kitty bloggin’. I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s don’t like all this human business stuffs and lease re-cert stuffs. I’s’ll be glad when it’s all over.

 

 Raena looks out door from small perch

 

          We all will Raena. We dread this time of year every year. Anyways, we’re furinally here, so let’s not meow ‘bout all that, let’s get on with today’s posty.

 

You mean our review of that plate of stuffs mommy gave us? I’s think I’s would rather meow ‘bout the weather.

 

          Maybe so Raena, but our furiends just might be innerested in tryin’ it out.

Instinct food toppers

You’re right sissy. And, we’re so fanky fankful to be pawrt of the Chewy Influencer team and have the oppurrtunity to try all these wonderful things out. Mommy, like a lot of our furiends humans’, is always on the lookout fur top notch, good fur us foods and treats. So, when mommy saw Nature’s Variety Instinct as an offurin’ this month, she knew we had to try it. As most of ya’ know by now, we luvs us some duck, so mommy got us the Instinct Healthy Cravings Grain-Free real Duck Recipe in savory gravy 3 oz. food topper. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout these toppers: 

 

Key Benefits

  • Cuts of cage-free duck in a savory gravy make the perfect meal complement.

  • Use it as a topper or mixer to add the delicious taste and moisture your cat craves.

  • Never contains any grains, potato, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meal or artificial colors or preservatives.

  • Made in the USA with the finest ingredients from around the world.

  • Guided by the belief in nutrition that is real, whole, pure and as close to its natural state as possible.

Ingredients

  1. Turkey Broth, Duck, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Eggs, Ground Dried Peas, Natural Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Salt, Sodium Carbonate, DL-Methionine

Caloric Content

Instinct Food topper

 

          As you can see in the ingredient list, it doesn’t contain any of those questionable ingredients that our humans are always tryin’ to avoid. But, it does contain some ingredients Raena and me try to avoid. MOL Now let me tell ya’, we luv us some of that turkey tom lurkey furesh off the bone, yes we do. But, we don’t like it when it’s been pressed, formed, or otherwise placed in our cat foods.

 

 Instinct Food Topper

 

We sure don’t sissy. I’s don’t know how mommy could have missed this. I’s mean, it’s the furst and third ingredient in the list. Ya’ think she was hopin’ we wouldn’t notice?

 

 Dezi and Raena checking out the instinct duck topper

 

          Yep Raena, me’s sure she was hopin’ there was enuff duck in there that we wouldn’t even notice the turkey.

 

Well sissy, she was wrong. We noticed it right away, and turned our noses up. 

 

 Dezi running from the Instinct food toppers

Me said NO, mommy. Me doesn’t wanna eat it.

 

          Me knows Raena. But sometimes, mommy just can’t take the hint. Did you see her chasin’ me ‘round the house with that plate? Me already told her me didn’t wanna eat it, and here she comes, right over to the scratcher. We never get to eat on the cat furniture. Did she think me would suddenly eat pressed turkey ifin me could eat it on the scratcher? Hmmpht  Not happenin’.

 

 Raena sniffs Instinct Food Topper

 

Yep, sissy, me either. I’s do have to meow that even tho’ we didn’t like it, the Instinct Grain-Free Wet cat food toppers have some really good ingredients. It also comes in Chicken and Tuna. The savory gravies are a great way to get water into your kitties. They come in a case of 24) 3 oz. packages and range in price from $25.00 to $32.00. So, I’s have to give them at least 1 paw up.

 

          Yep Raena, me will give them a paw up too. Good ingredients are hard to find, so me’s glad to see that Instinct has taken that into account. Has mommy got her breath back from chasin’ me ‘round with the plate? 

 

Dezi watches Raena atop the Liberty cat tree

 

Yep sissy, and she was a bit disappointed that we wouldn’t even try it. She did say that she must’ve missed all the turkey. She knew it had turkey broth, but her old eyes missed the rest of it. Nevertheless, she says it deserves a thumb up fur the lack of questionable ingredients. But, she said she did wish that when a food said it was one ingredient, that the companies wouldn’t substitute cheaper proteins to make it go further. Ya’ know, this can be a real purroblem fur kitties with food allergies too. So, it’s not just us finicky kitties that this be an issue fur.

 

Raena peeks around the corner at the remote controlled mouse

 

          That’s so true Raena. Ya’ know we luv Chewy. They carry so many pawsum purroducts fur all the furry, finned and feathered members of your furmily. And they always have a great purrice. There’s an auto ship program so you never have to worry ‘bout runnin’ out of your pets favorites. Don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay at anytime.

Prepping The Dance Floor #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s furinally the weekend!!! What does a kitty care ‘bout the weekend you ask? We really don’t, but all humans seem a little happier come Furiday. And, that makes us kitties happier too. We know that mommy’s a lot happier on Furidays’. I’s think it has somethin’ to do with the office bein’ closed, so we won’t be bothered fur the next 3 days.

 

 Dezi sits on scratcher and looks back at Raena laying on the nip mat

 

          You’re right ‘bout all of that Raena, but it really has nuffin’ to do with our posty today.

 

Maybe not sissy, but, shouldn’t we acknowledge that peeps be happy and wish ‘em a happy weekend? 

 

 Chewy Logo

 

          (Dezi shakes head) Whatever Raena. Anyways, as pawrt of the Chewy bloggin’ furmily we get to try out and review great purroducts every month. This month was no different. As most of ya’ know, we use a natural litter in our pawdee boxes. Mommy likes natural cuz ifin it happens to get stuck to our furs and ultimately ends up in our tummies, it’ll move right on thru us and not become a clump in our intestines. And, most natural litters are flushable. Altho’ as most of ya’ may ‘member, we got one of those litter genie’s fur Raena’s birthday that we now use. And, maybe the most purrtant reason, or at least the second most purrtant, they contain no purrfumes. You know us kitties have the most sensitive sniffers ‘round.

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Okocat Cat Litter in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

  

 Dezi lays on scratcher while Raena lays on nip mat

 

Those are great reasons sissy. Mommy’s always lookin’ out fur us, ain’t she?. Anyways, fur many years, these natural litters have been made of corn, paper or wheat. All great purroducts, lessen your kitty happens to have an allergy to corn or wheat. Wha’ch’a gonna do now?

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

          Good point Raena. Well, enter Okocat, a natural litter made of wood. Altho’ we must add they do have one litter made of paper, but, we’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout the wood today. We got to try the Okocat Soft Step Natural Wood clumping litter. It’s called soft step cuz it’s finely milled to make it easy on kitty’s tender paw pads. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Okocat litter:

 

Key Benefits

  • Naturally lightweight natural cat litter with a super soft texture your cat will love. Soft Step™ is a fine wood granule, a texture similar to that of clay litter so transitioning your cat to natural is easy. True to its name, it’s perfect for delicate paws, seniors and kittens.

  • Made to control odors for up to 7 days with its patented Odor Shield Technology. Okocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives,

  • Its specially formulated pellets are firm on the outside and soft on the inside. It is fortified with long lasting odor control technology and has been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X its weight in liquid.

  • Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.

  • It also has the added benefit of being biodegradable. Okocat is naturally lightweight and comes in a smart compostable package with an easy carry handle and pour spout

 

 Okocat Cat Litter

 

We received the 7 pound box. Now mommy knew that 7 pounds wouldn’t fill even one of our litter boxes, so she poured it across the top of our regular litter. Okocat recommends the litter box be filled to a depth of 3 inches. Trust me, this is fur sure somethin’ you wanna do, ‘specially ifin you have diggers like me. Mommy says I’s gonna end up in China one of these days. I’s don’t know what she’s talkin’ ‘bout. I’s luvs mine’s home and fur sure don’t wanna go to China without mommy and sissy. Anyways…

 

          It’s a figure of speech Raena. Me knows, human’s sure do have a lot of them. And, half the time they don’t make any sense what so ever. Me asked mommy ‘bout the dust factor and she said, to be honest, she didn’t really ‘member ifin there was a dust cloud or not. That usually means there wasn’t one, cuz she ‘members every time she hacks up a hair ball due to litter dust.

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

Yep, I’s didn’t notice all that much dust durin’ mine’s diggin’ forays either sissy. It doesn’t have much of a smell, which is really nice. It feels soft on mine’s paws too. We insist the pawdee box be scooped after every use, so we can’t really meow ‘bout how long the Okocat would hide the smell, but, mommy said it didn’t stink while she was scoopin’. I also didn’t end up with a bloomer full of wood chips. Let me tell ya’, that’s been really nice. Mommy says it has somethin’ to do with the way I’s squat and the litter bein’ wet when I’s stand back up. So, we can surmise that the Okocat natural wood litter clumps and dries almost immediately. And, the clump remains a clump ‘stead of breakin’ up durin’ mine’s attempts of dislodging covering it up.

 

 tracked Okocat

          You and your diggin’ Raena. Me just walks in, squats, goes and leaves. It’s so much easier that way. 

 

Fur you maybe. I’s come ‘round behind ya’ and cover it all up. Did your sis Lexi (God rest her) do that too? 

 

tracked okocat

Okocat tracked onto floor right in front of litterbox and mat.

 

          Who asked ya’, Raena? Mommy’s gonna scoop it out when me’s finished. No need to spend time diggin’ when me could be bathin’ or gettin’ some beauty sleeps. Me must tell ya’ll that while the Okocat wood litters may not stick to our bloomers, it sure does track. Mommy says the bathroom is like a dance floor now…all dusted and ready fur jitterbuggers.

 

tracked okocat

Littermat in front of large litter box.

 

Yeah sissy, I’s didn’t unnerstand that one either. But, mommy says she used to luvs to dance; and that all good dance floors had a little sawdust put down to keep them from bein’ too slippery. She said she hadn’t thought ‘bout it befur, but the light bulb went off when she saw the dust on the floor. Wood chips equals sawdust. Anyways, the Okocat comes in several different formulas and textures, from finely milled wood, pine and paper to pellets. It’s also flushable and eco-friendly, bein’ made of 100% reclaimed fibers, free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics. It ranges in purrice from $11.19 to $18.14 and comes in sizes from 7 pounds to 20 pounds, depending on formulas. All in all, we give it 3 paws up and a thumb up from mommy.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Yep Raena, the only downfall we saw was the dance floor effect. Altho’, mommy says trackin’ is just one of those things kitty peeps get used too. As always, we ‘purreciate Chewy lettin’ us try out the Okocat cat litter. Chewy has purroducts fur all the furry, feathered, and scaled members of your household. You can also set up an auto-ship so you never run out of your favorite purroducts. And Chewy’s customer service is the bestest.

Duck And Cover #ChewyInfluencer

MeOW  Raena!!! The lawn crew’s here, why don’t you take the lead on today’s posty. Me has to go check UTB (under the bed) fur intruders. It’s time to Duck and Cover!!!

 

 Dezi lays in the house on the Liberty cat tree

 

          But sissy, it’s time fur brekky. Aren’t you gonna stay and eat your brekky?

 

Me will be back in a minute, so stay outta me’s plate. But you go ahead and tell everypawdy ‘bout those Wellness Kittles we got from Chewy this month. (Dezi slinks down the hall and under the bed. Raena stands in the middle of the hall and looks toward the door and then back at the bedroom bewildered. Mommy calls for the girls to ignore the lawn crew and come and eat their brekky. Dezi meows loudly) Me will be there shortly mommy.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap and enjoys some loving

 

          (Raena goes to mommy but looks back for Dezi) But, sissy? Mommy, why does sissy hide so much?

 

     I don’t know baby, but there’s nothing to be afraid of. Come on now, eat your breakfast and let’s get this post written, okay?.

 

          Okay mommy. Well, I’s couldn’t believe we got 2 bags of treats this month. We don’t get a lot of treats here, so 2 bags in one month must mean somethin’ special’s happenin’.

 

 Dezi, Raena and mommy together giving everyone a hug and kiss

 

(Dezi meows loudly from UTB) Mommy’s birthday is Caturday Raena. And she always lets us have specials fur her birthday.

 

          Really sissy? How old is mommy? 

 

RaenaBelle!!! You know better than to ask a woman how old she is? That’s just bad manners. And besides, mommy says anypawdy that’s rude enuff to ask such a question deserves a lie. Let’s just say, she’s as old as Methuselah. 

 

          Who’s Methuselah? 

 

(Dezi meows with frustration from UTB) It doesn’t matter Raena. Get on with our review. We’ll talk ‘bout mommy and Methuselah later.

 Wellness Kittles Cat Treats

 

          Well, okay sissy. But you better not furget like the last time. (Raena peers down the hall toward the bedroom and then prances back to mommy and the computer) And what does Duck and Cover have to do with our review? Anyways, I’s luvs birthdays. Mine’s party last month was so pawsum. I’s could do that every day. Chewy sent me some Kittles kitty treats fur mine’s birthday; so when they came up as a review item, mommy thought we might like to try a different flavor since we liked the ones they sent me. Mommy knows we luvs us some duck, and Wellness makes a grain-free Duck and Cranberry recipe crunchy treat. We couldn’t wait to try ‘em out. but befur we get to the taste testin’, let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout the Wellness Kittles Grain-Free Duck and Cranberries recipe crunchy cat treats, 2 oz. bag.

  • No meat by-products, wheat, corn, soy or artificial flavors, colors or preservatives

  • Made with the finest globally sourced ingredients

  1. 2 kcal/treat

 

          As you can see by the ingredient list, there’s none of those questionable ingredients listed. That always makes mommy happy. We’re not sure we’d know the difference, but our humans only want the bestest fur us, so hey, so long as it tastes good, what do we care? MOL  Anyways, since they do talk ‘bout phosphorous, mommy says ifin you have a CKD kitty, you need to check with Wellness ‘bout the phosphorous content befur feedin’ these to your CKD kitty. Otherwise, they’re a good lookin’ treat… on paper. But let’s see how they stand up to the taste buds. (Raena meows loudly toward the bedroom) Hey sissy? Do you wanna tell everypawdy what you thought ‘bout the Wellness Kittles Duck and Cranberries treat

 

 

 Dezi eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

(Dezi meows loudly from the bedroom door) Yeah, sure, Raena. The Kittles Duck treats be a nice bite size treat and taste purretty good. Me likes ‘em just fine as an occassional substitute fur our freeze dried treats. Me gives them 3 paws up. Do they come in other flavors Raena?

 

 Raena eats Kittles treat on the Liberty cat tree

 

          Fanky fanks sissy. I’s do luvs me some duck, and these Kittles were a nice tasty treat. 3 paws up from me too. And yes, they come in 5 more flavors: Chicken and Cranberry, Tuna and Cranberry, Salmon and Cranberry, Turkey and Cranberry and Whitefish and Cranberry. Seems the Wellness peeps really like their Cranberries. 

 

 Dezi eats treats on Liberty cat tree

 

Well Raena, cranberries are s’posed to be good fur helpin’ us kitties avoid UTI’s. And bein’ on sale fur $2.86 – $3.99, kind’a makes buyin’ some right now, a no brainer. (Dezi meows, as she slinks toward the living room, making sure the lawn crew is gone before settling in to eat her breakfast.)

 

 Chewy blog hop badge

 

          I’s agree sissy. And mommy says at that purrice, we could pawssibly have some every now and then. Cuz they’re a kibble, mommy won’t let us have too many, cranberries or not. She gave ‘em a thumb up too. And, as always, they came in a great Chewy box. A girly can never have too many boxes. ‘Specially since we’re not allowed to keep boxes fur long. Silly ‘pawrtment rules. As always, Chewy offurs speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and more and speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. And, ifin ya’ add these Kittles to any auto ship, you can save even more off that sale purrice. But, don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay any auto ship at any time.

Merrick Back Country #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Kittens!!! Have we had a week or what? Storms all the time and then that nasty ole lawn crew came and scared mine’s sissy.

 

 Dezi laying atop the Liberty cat tree with her mouth open

 

          Me wasn’t scared, Raena!!! Me was just tryin’ to be safe. You know one of our sweet furiends pointed out that our hearin’ is way better than human peeps ears, so all that racket just might bust our ear drums ifin we hang out too close to it.

 

Um  Sure sissy, whatever you say.

(Raena meows under her breath) I’s don’t think so, sissy, but that’s a good one.

Anyways, at least we got some treats after the lawn crew left. And we even had a sun puddle fur a minute this meownin’. We wasn’t sure we were gonna get any based on all those storm warnings last night. Ya’ reckon we might get some more of those tasty treats today, sissy? 

 

 Merrick Back Country Grain Free freeze dried chicken recipe treats

 

          Me bets ifin we give mommy “The Face” we’re sure to get some. Furst, we oughtta tell everypawdy ‘bout ‘em.

And we always tell it like we see it. We only bring you products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

 Raena with Merrick Freeze dried cat treats

 

You’re right sissy, we should. We were so excited to see treats on the review list this month from Chewy.com. We weren’t aware that Merrick made freeze dried raw treats, so we just had to try ‘em. We got the Grain-Free Real Chicken recipe in a 1 ounce bag. They also come in Grain-Free Real Salmon fur $2.72 a bag. It is a small bag, but the bag is filled to the top. And comparin’ freeze dried treat purrices, they’re purretty reasonably purriced.

 

          Yeah Raena, they are. But they’re more like a topper than a true freeze dried treat like we’re used too. Most of the freeze dried treats we eat are 1 ingredient, like chicken breast or chicken liver. So let’s take a look at the ingredient list of the Merrick Back Country Grain-Free Freeze Dried Real Chicken Recipe.

  

Ingredients

  1. Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Peas, Dried Potatoes, Gelatin, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (Preservative).

Caloric Content

  1. 3,805 kcal/kg, 3 kcal/treat 

 

Yep sissy, and they’re shaped in little tubes that can be fairly easily broken or crushed and sprinkled over food. Let’s see what Chewy lists as the key benefits.

  • Protein-rich treat

  • Real whole pieces of raw, freeze-dried chicken

  • Freeze-dried pieces lock in all the nutritional benefits of chicken in its natural state, in an easily digestible format

  • More nutrients are absorbed, and fewer pass through

  • Morsels are also loaded with incredible, naturally fresh flavor cats love

  • Cautions

    Not for human consumption.

Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

As you can see, there’s none of those questionable ingredients overtly mentioned in the ingredient list. We’re not sure what pawrt of the chicken is used, but they ain’t chicky breasts fur sure. So, let’s get to the taste testin’. After the lawn crew cleared out, things settled down a bit and mommy gave us a few of these Merrick Back Country chicken treats. At furst, I’s wasn’t sure what to do with them. They rolled nicely, and made fur great battin’ purractice. But then mommy broke a couple into smaller pieces and offured them to me in her hand. I’s took mine’s furst bite and then mine’s second and so on. They may not be pure white chicky breasts, but they are purretty tasty. I’s would have to give them 3 paws up. Sissy, what did you think?

 

 Dezi eating treats atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          Well Raena, me knew ‘zactly what to do with them. Me ate ‘em all up. You’re right, they’re fur sure not chicky breasts, but they are purretty tasty indeed. Me does purrfur the single ingredient freeze dried treat, but these ain’t bad fur havin’ peas and taters in ‘em. Me gives them 3 paws up too. And, cuz of the purrice, those lookin’ fur an affurdable freeze dried treat fur your furries, might wanna check these out.

 

 Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

Fanky fanks sissy. Mommy says cuz they’re easy to break or crumble, and cuz we ate ‘em, she would give them a thumb up too. And as always, Chewy sent ‘em in a great box with packin’ paper too. Chewy has lots of great purroducts fur your furry, feathered and scaled furmily members. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and over, and a flat rate fee fur all other orders. You can save even more by settin’ up an auto ship so you’ll never run out of your pet’s favorite noms, treats and supplies. Don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay any shipment, as well as edit and add or remove any items you might only need once; like a new litter box, collar or somethin’. And, Chewy has the bestest Customer Service on the planet.

          Hey Raena, don’t furget, we need to link up with the Pet Parade blog hop.

Fanky fanks sissy. We also wanna remind everypawdy that we were recently innerviewed by our sweet furiend Valentine. He posted the furst half of the innerview last Caturday. Ifin ya’ missed it, you can read it here. And tomorrow, he’ll be postin’ the “Rest of the Story”. MOL  Don’t worry, we’ll remind ya’ tomorrow too. He asked some great questions that some of ya’ might not know ‘bout us. I’s gotta go now, and see ifin we can meow mommy outta some more of those treats.

Solid Gold SeaMeal™ #ChewyInfluencer

Hey Raena, is that nip in your noms? 

 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

 

          Nip? Where’s the nip? I’s don’t smell any nip.

 

In your noms, silly. That green stuff, there, in your food.

 

 

 Solid Gold SeaMeal dry

 

          Oh, that. No sissy, that’s not nip. It’s Solid Gold SeaMeal. You know, us anipals are eatin’ better and better all the time. Our pawrents are gettin’ more label savvy and tryin’ more and more natural purroducts to keep us healthy. And when that happens, supplements start showin’ up as regualr additions to meal time. Fankfully, as Chewy Influencers, we get the oppurrtunity to try a lot of these supplements and foods. And this month, mommy thought we should try the Solid Gold SeaMeal. You tried it earlier in the month, but…well, let’s look at what exactly this is befur we get to the taste testin’.

Disclaimer: We received the Solid Gold SeaMeal in exchange for our honest opinion. Neither Chewy nor Solid Gold are responsible for the opinions expressed in this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we tell only the truth as we see it. And we only bring products we use or have tried and think would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

  

          The Solid Gold SeaMeal is a nutritional supplement that says it supports the overall wellness for cats and dogs. Let’s look at the ingredient list:   

Ingredients

  1. Dried Seaweed Meal, Flaxseed, Dried Aspergillus Oryzae Fermentation Product,Dried Trichoderma Reesei Fermentation Solubles, Dried Rhizopus Oryzae Fermentation Product, Dried Pineapple, Dried Lemon Peel, Lactose.

Solid Gold SeaMeal

 

 

Me bets the Seaweed meal is why it’s green. The bottle says it has digestive enzymes to help us anipals utilize our food more efficiently. That’s the reason mommy wanted us to try it. We received the 8 oz. jar, which is $12.99. But it also comes in a 1 pound jar and 5 pound jar fur those bigger doggies or multiple anipal households. The jar also includes a 1 teaspoon size scoop to make measurin’ easy. Let’s go ahead and take a look at what Chewy says ‘bout the Solid Gold SeaMeal.

Key Benefits

  • Nutritional supplement to support overall wellness in dogs and cats that combines natural seaweed with flaxseed meal and digestive enzymes

  • Made with red, green, and brown seaweed that provides vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants

  • Contains flaxseed, an abundant source of omega-3 fatty acids to boost the immune system and promote optimal skin and coat health

  • Digestive enzymes help pets utilize their food more efficiently and helps pets suffering from chronic digestive upset, vomiting, or diarrhea

  • Easy to administer: just sprinkle on top of your pet’s meal at each feeding

We have quite a few furiends that have those tummy troubles, so mommy was really excited fur us to try this out to repurrt the effects. We’re always tryin’ to help our furiends find natural solutions when pawssible. And knowin’ kitties offen want what some other kitty’s eatin’, mommy looks fur things that can be safely given to all the anipals in the house.

 

          That’s right sissy. And just the other day mommy was talkin’ to somepawdy ‘bout all the vitamins and minerals added to commercial pet foods; and how so offen, fish oil is used to purrvide the Omega-3 fatty acids. As most everypawdy knows, we’re not big on fish in our house. And more and more kitties are developin’ allergies to fish purroducts. Mommy was happy to see Flaxseed on the ingredient list ‘stead of some fish oil. Serving the Solid Gold SeaMeal is a little different from a lot of these supplements. The directions on the bottle say to add it to the food, pour in some warm water and stir. The directions on Chewy say to mix it with 1/4 inch of warm water in the bottom of the bowl/plate and add food over the top. The jar also recommends spreading the “dose” out over 2 meals a day for the life of your pet. 

 

 Solid Gold SeaMeal mixed with water

 

Mommy tried the jar’s instructions furst. She mixed the SeaMeal into our food and served it to us. ‘Member me said it’s green? Well, after mixin’ our food with it, so was our noms. Neither of us seemed to be the least bit innerested in eatin’ green food. So mommy went back and followed the instructions on Chewy, and mixed it up in the bottom of our plates and added our noms over the top. As most of ya’ know, we like a little gravy, so this option worked much better to get us to eat it. A kitty me’s size, is s’posed to get 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon a day. Now that doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you’re adding it to food, it actually makes a big difference and changes the taste of our noms. Never the less, knowin’ mommy was only tryin’ to help, me gladly ate it all up. ‘Bout an hour later, me horked up a green blobby mess right on the carpet. To say mommy wasn’t purrleased, would be puttin’ it mildly. Oh, she wasn’t angry with me, she just hadn’t planned to clean the cawrpet that day. MOL

Of course, mommy knew me could’ve just had an upset tummy, or hairball, so a couple of days later, mommy gave me the Solid Gold SeaMeal again. And again, within an hour of eatin’, me horked up a green blobby mess. This happened 2 more times, befur mommy ceased addin’ the SeaMeal to me’s food. It has great ingredients, and me gladly ate it; but it didn’t seem to sit well in me’s tummy. So me would have to give it 2 paws up.

          I’s sorry you horked sissy. I’s know that’s not fun at all. Fankfully, I’s didn’t have that same purroblem. I’s happily ate the Solid Gold SeaMeal gravy and kept it down. And you’re right, it does have great ingredients, so I’s would give it 3 paws up. I’s took a paw off cuz you couldn’t eat it sissy. And I’s want mine’s noms to be just like yours. Mommy wasn’t thrilled that you kept throwin’ it up either, and cuz of that, she couldn’t add it to both our noms. And since you have a habit of stealin’ mine’s noms, mommy can’t add it to mine’s foods without worryin’ that you’ll eat ‘em and hork. So fur that reason, mommy gives the Solid Gold SeaMeal 1 thumb up. So, while it might not be fur every kitty, it’s still a great supplement.
