Blest Sunday: Will Raena Get A BlogPaws Birthday Party

Dezi:  MeOW Raena, what are you doin’?

          Raena:  I’s lookin’ fur all the birdies and squirrels that were here the other day. What happened to all of ‘em, sissy? I’s thought maybe they came to wish me a happy birthday. 

 

Dezi lays in at bed

 

 

 

Well Raena, furst of all your birthday isn’t fur a couple more weeks. Secondly, it turned fureezin’ cold again. The weather guessers even said we might get some snow. Can you believe that? Snow!!! (Dezi shudders) Fankfully they were wrong.

 

          Least so far sissy. Mommy says the colds are s’posed to be here fur a little longer. Seems Spring likes the snooze button as much as us cats. Anyways, meowin’ of mine’s birthday, are you gonna throw me a pawrty? Ya’ know, like with costumes and pawrty favors and all our furiends comin’ over fur a play date? Mommy says I’s gettin’ to be a big girl now, so I’s oughtta have a big girl pawrty, right?

Me thinks mommy may be refurrin’ to your ever x’pandin’ belly Raena, cuz you’re only gonna be 2 years old. In Ragdoll time, you’re still an annoyin’ kitten. 

 

          Sissy, are you bein’ mean to me? I’s gonna tell mommy you’re bein’ mean. 

 

It’s not mean ifin it’s the truth, Raena. Anyways, your birthday just happens to fall on the weekend of BlogPaws. With so many of our furiends bein’ away that weekend, me thought we’d have a small celebration fur your birthday and really whoop it up fur your Gotchaday. Me’s even workin’ on a little surpurrise.

          A surpurrise, sissy? Wha’cha’ plannin? Are we goin’ to BlogPaws? Will mine’s pawrty be there?

 

Ifin me told ya’, it wouldn’t be a surpurrise silly. (Dezi shakes her head and smiles deviously) As fur BlogPaws, mommy says she’s still workin’ on it. Chewy offurred to sponsor us fur some of our trip and awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme said they’d sponsor some of it, so mommy’s tryin’ to work it all out. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

 

          But we’d go with mommy, right sissy? I’s mean, mommy wouldn’t actually go off and leave us, right? 

 

Dezi stands on tip of stroller-selfie

 

 

 

‘Course we’d go, Raena. Don’t be silly. When has mommy ever left us behind? She tells us all the time how much she luvs us and how she would never ever leave us. We’re really Blest to have such a pawsum mommy. 

 

          We sure are sissy. I’s know that lots of peeps are talkin’ ‘bout this BlogPaws, but what is it ‘zactly? Is it fun? 

 

Yeah Raena, it’s fun. It’s a confurrence fur all the anipal bloggers and micro-bloggers. It’s a chance to meet furiends in the fur to flesh, and inneract with peeps from all the brands we luv and some we’ve never heard of. To check out all the latest and greatest in cat toys, supplies and furniture. Oh, and to attend learnin’ sessions to make our bloggy better. That last pawrt is fur mommy. Like we need any lessons on how to run our own bloggy. Hmmmpht

          That sure does sound like fun, sissy. What a way to spend mine’s birthday. I’s could meet all our furiends and maybe even go fur a stroll with ‘em. That would really be cool. Ya’ know, we’re always wantin’ to go strollin’ with our furiends, and now we really could. OMC We could show off our new stroller. We gotta get busy and trick it out.

 

One step at a time, grasshopper.

 

          Grasshopper? Who are you meowin’ to, sissy? I’s no grasshopper. I’s don’t even know who grasshopper is? 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher looking cute

 

 

 

Never mind, Raena. Let’s finish brekky and then we can meow ‘bout trickin’ our new Gen7 Jogger out. We are really Blest to have such pawsum oppurrtunities. Ya’ know, in all the years mommy worked, she never had a vacation. Our furst trip to BlogPaws was really the furst time mommy had ever done anythin’ like that. And now we have the chance to go again. What a blessing. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your life.

          Don’t furget sissy, we’re also linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. C’mon sissy, let’s make a list of all the things we wanna take. 

 

You go ahead Raena, me’s gonna take a short nap furst.

Chatting Cats: Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Furstly, I’s sure wanna fanky fank everypawdy fur their purrayers. Sis Dezi is feelin’ much better and availin’ herself of the pawtty box again. Mommy seems much happier ‘bout that too. I’s really gonna miss the slip slidey piddle pads all over the place. What fun!!! Mommy will purrobably be a lot happier ‘bout that too. Anyways…

          RaenaBelle!!! We ain’t spendin’ a whole ‘nother posty meowin’ ‘bout me’s piddle issues. But, me really does ‘purreciate the purrayers. Now, we’ve got a review to write today.

 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

 

 

 

Sure ‘nuff sissy. As most of ya’ know, we eat freeze dried noms on the regular. As anypawdy who has ever shopped freeze dried raw noms knows, it’s kind’a ‘spensive. ‘Course, mommy says ‘nuffin’ but the bestest fur her girls. We sure are Blest. Anyways, that bein’ said, we’re on a fixed income so mommy’s always lookin’ fur ways to save a few dollars while still purrvidin’ us with the bestest quality on the market. To do that, mommy mixes a couple of brands of freeze dried noms together. Mommy’s also always lookin’ fur new proteins fur us to try. While it might not be ideal fur us kitties to eat somethin’ different at every meal, it’s also not good fur us to eat only one food or protein. Ya’ never know when fur whatever reason (allergies, health problems, etc.), we might need to mix it up. So, we all got x’cited to see Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried cat food up fur review this month from Chewy.

This is a sponsored post. We received a 3.5 oz bag of food in exchange fur our honest opinion. Neither Chewy nor Stella & Chewy’s are responsible for the opinions expressed in this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

 

          Yep Raena, we sure were. Me used to eat it all the time, till we got a few bags that had way too much bone in them and mommy saw that they were usin’ that bad vitamin K. But wait, savvy customers like mommy and most of ya’ll alerted the peeps at Stella & Chewy’s and they removed the bad stuffs from their noms in Feruary 2017. Now that’s the kind’a respawnse we’d all like to see from pet food manufacturers, ain’t it? 

 

 Dezi and Raena sniff Stella & Chewy's freeze dried turkey food

 

 

 

Yep sissy, it sure is. Anyways, as most of ya’ know, we luvs us some rabbit. Unfurtunately, mommy says rabbit is one of the most ‘spensive proteins on the market; so she has to supplement our rabbit with other proteins. That mostly means chicken, but Stella & Chewy’s make other proteins too: Salmon & Chicken, Duck, Duck, Goose, Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey, Sea-licious Salmon and Cod and of course, Chicken and our fave, Rabbit. They also have lots of flavors fur the woofies. You might ‘member that we luvs us some fureshly baked turkey tom lurkey, so mommy thought she’d get us a bag of that Stella & Chewy’s Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey to try. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout it:

Ingredients

Turkey with Ground Bone, Turkey Liver, Turkey Gizzard, Pumpkin Seed, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Phosphate Monobasic, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Dried Pediococcus acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium longum Fermentation Product, Tocopherols (Preservative), Calcium Carbonate, Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Riboflavin, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement

Caloric Content

Key Benefits

  • Real raw nutrition in the convenience of freeze-dried. Serve as is or rehydrate by adding warm water.

  • Made in Stella & Chewy’s own USA kitchen with cage-free turkey and 100% organic-certified fruits and vegetables.

  • Never contains grains, gluten, fillers, artificial preservatives, or colorings.

  • Simple, pristine recipe with limited ingredients and rich in protein.

  • Pet parents and vets report raw feeding supports an improved appetite, digestion, immune system, teeth and gum health, skin and coat, and can help relieve allergies.

 

 

          See? They took out the Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex (Vit. K). There’s also none of that carrageenan or gums to worry ‘bout. Mommy does wish they would also take out all the “Sulfates” and use only the “Proteinates”. But hey, till she’s ready to make our food herself, nuffin’s gonna be purrfect, right?

True enuff sissy. Let’s get to the taste testin’. That’s mine’s favorote pawrt. We like small bites, so mommy had to break the little nuggets in half and add some water. I’s not a fan of the Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey. I’s would much rather have a freshly cooked turkey tom lurkey. But, I’s do like that the company lissens to it’s customers, so fur that reason me will give it 2 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

          Eh, like you Raena, me much purrfurs fresh turkey tom lurkey. But me agrees, lissenin’ to your customers is always a good thing. So me will give it 2 paws up as well. Fankfully, they also carry chicken and our favorite rabbit. They also come in a variety of sizes, 3.5 oz, 9 oz, 12 oz and 18 oz bags. Cost ranges from $9.49 to $37.99. And there’s always speedy free shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up; and, flat rate speedy shippin’ on all others.

Don’t furget ‘bout Chewy’s customer service peeps, sissy. They are pawsum. You can shop with confidence any hour and any day of the year. And every box is a toy. MOL Chewy has purroducts fur all the furry, finned, scaled and non furries in your family. You can also set up an auto ship so you never run out of your faves and save an extra 5%.

 Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety pack cat food

 

 

 

Cuz me just tasted it a minute ago. Ya’ know, we should let everypawdy know what we’re meowin’ ‘bout, Raena. As most everypawdy knows, we like and eat all the time, our fureeze dried noms. And mommy says even tho’ it’s ‘spensive, she’d gladly do whatever it takes to keep us in good food. But, she’s always on the lookout fur somethin’ a little cheaper but still good quality, to kind’a fill in once in a while. Ya’ know, like those times when we eat everythin’ on our plate and want seconds. So, when she saw the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen variety pack that Chewy was offurin fur this month, she thought we should try it.

Weruva Chicken Cat Food

Weruva Chicken Frick ‘A Zee

 

 

 

 

          As you can see there’s a whole lotta fish. And, as most of ya’ know, we’re not really fish eaters. So, the only flavor we would actually try is the Chicken Frick ’A Zee. After we finished off our dinner one night, we both asked fur seconds. So, mommy halved a couple of cans till she found the one we would try. The chicken is kind’a shredded and there’s this thick “gravy” type substance across the top of it. Naturally mommy added some water to thin that gravy out. Ya’ know, us kitties don’t get enuff water, so anytime mommy can add water to our noms, she does. And, we like a thinner gravy anyways. I lapped up a bit of that gravy and took a few bites of the chicken befur I’s decided it wasn’t really fur me. You on the other hand sissy…

 

 Dezi eats Weruva cat food

 

 

 

What? Me kind’a liked it. Ya’ know, it wasn’t our normal noms, but it would be nice every now and then. Me wouldn’t wanna eat it every day, but that’s only cuz me purrfurs a tasty rabbit over chicken any day. Mommy says she was purroud that me ate any of it. It wasn’t that long ago that me wouldn’t touch anythin’ but a certain brand of kibble. ‘Course, that made me sick, but, me can be finicky. So, all in all, me would give the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen canned food 2 paws up.

 

 Raena eats with her back to the camera

The gravy’s not bad.

 

 

 

          I’s guess I’s could give ‘em a paw up too, sissy. The ingredients are purretty good and it actually looks like chicken. I’s asked mommy, and she said she’d give ‘em a thumb up too. She took a thumb away cuz of all the fish. Fish just isn’t really that good fur kitties, and with so many kitties havin’ allergies, it’d be better ifin everypawdy would ditch the tuna. But, we sure do luvs our Chewy. There’s always a great toy of the box and packin’ paper with every shipment.

 

Dezi peeks out from a chewy box

 

 

 

That’s true Raena. Chewy has the bestest boxes. And, they have goodies fur all the furred, finned, scaled and unfurry members of your family. All orders over $49.00 ship fur furee and all other orders have one low flat rate shippin’ charge. And of course their shippin’ is usually purretty speedy. Chewy says 1 to 2 day shippin’, but we will say that depends on where you live and where your order is shipped from. None the less, you’ll have fun when your box arrives. And, Chewy has great customer service, so you can shop with confidence. Well, we gotta go, seems the mail lady is walkin’ up to our purrch. See ya’ll soon. 

 

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