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.

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.

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

145 kcal/oz, 5,140 kcal/kg

 

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?

 

 Dezi sniffs Raena while posing with Stella & Chewy's freeze dried turkey cat food

 

 

 

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%. Don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay any shipment, as well as add to or remove items within 24 hours of shipping.

Chatting Cats: Rabbit Morsels on a Plate #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Sissy, will you hurry and eat your brekky, so we can write our review posty?.

 

 Dezi licks lips while eating and Raena plays in the chair behind her

 

 

 

          Don’t you know that eatin’ slow helps aid in digestion and helps ya’ get full faster?

 

 I’s thinkin’ that only applies to humans, sissy. But I’s get that ya’ don’t wanna leave any crumb on the plate. Them rabbits sure are yummy.

Neither Chewy or Stella and Chewy’s are responsible for the opinions in this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we tell it like we see it. We only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our friends and readers.

 

 

 

          They sure are Raena. Me’s so glad we got to try ‘em. Me’s hopin’ mommy adds ‘em to our Chewy auto ship so we can have ‘em again. We should purrobably tell everypawdy just what rabbits we’re meowin’ ‘bout. We were really happy to see Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried noms available to review from Chewy this month. We’ve eaten the Duck Duck Goose formula befur so we were x’cited to see they’ve added Rabbit to their line up. Knowin’ how much we luv us some rabbit, mommy jumped on it.

 

 Dezi sniffs the Stella and Chewy's Rabbit cat food

 

 

 

She sure did sissy. We received the 3.5 ounce bag of morsels to try. They also come in a 9 ounce bag fur $28.99. There are 6 formulas includin’ the rabbit that are available from $9.49 to $37.99 in sizes rangin’ from the 3.5 ounce bag to 18 ounces. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout the Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried Raw Absolutely Rabbit Dinner Morsels Cat Food

 Dezi checks out the Stella and Chewy food

Mmmmmm Is that Rabbit?

 

 

 

          We were really happy to see the only meat included in the rabbit formula is actually Rabbit. So offen the name of a food doesn’t accurately reflect the actual contents inside the bag or can. We offen find that foods include turkey or some kind of fish as a 2nd or 3rd ingredient but it’s not listed in the name of the food. So, the Stella and Chewy’s Rabbit formula is all Rabbit. WooHoo 

 

 Dezi sits by Stella and Chewy food

 

 

 

So true sissy. And while we might really luvs a fureshly cooked turkey tom lurkey, we don’t like whatever pawrts of the turkey that are included in cat foods. And as most everypawdy knows, we’re not much fur fish either. I’s luvs these new Rabbit morsels. Purr the description listed at Chewy, these can be fed dry, straight outta the bag. However, since we cats don’t actually drink as much water as we should, we highly recommend adding water or broth to them. The morsels readily soak up the liquid and can be served almost immediately. I’s give ‘em 4 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

Before liquids

 

 

          Me luvs ‘em too Raena. Me would also give them 4 paws up. Mommy was really purrleased that they didn’t seem as bony as some of the other formulas. Mommy says too much bone can cause constipation, and that’s not good. So, mommy gave ‘em a thumb up too. She says she withheld one thumb cuz they are a bit pricey. But she did say that most peeps charge more fur rabbit formulas that aren’t even all rabbit. The more she thinks ‘bout it she says she would add an additional 1/2 thumb cuz the food is what it says it is.

Needless to say, the Stella and Chewy’s Rabbit is a hit in our house. Almost as much of a hit as Chewy. You know we luvs us some Chewy. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. They offur an auto ship purrogram that ensures you’ll never run out of your pets faves. And they have all kinds of goodies fur all the furred, feathered, scaled and furless family members in your house. And, they have the greatest boxes ever. You know how much us kitties like a good box.

 

 The Blessing Train

 

 

 

          There’s one last thing we need to do befur we go Raena. The next Blessin’ in our 12 Days of Blessings is: Technology. Technology brought us our catputer that allowed us to make so many amazin’ furiends. Technology brought us the ability to fureeze dry noms so that we can eat raw food anywhere anytime. Technology brought us heaters and ‘lectric blankys, and light and…well, you get the picture.

 

Fanky fanks sissy, that’s a great Blessin’. Let’s go play. We’ve got another great review to get ready.

 

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

Duck Duck Goose #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy. As ya’ know we’s been re-workin’ our days and postys here. We now have Service Cats Monday, Chaplain Dezi’s Blest Sunday’s, and then nuffin’. We also regularly write postys on Wednesdays and Furidays, but we don’t have a name to give ‘em yet. And why is dat? Well cuz we do write reviews, but not enuff to give them their own day each week. And we write update posty’s and VET postys, but fankfullly not nearly enuff to even give them a day a month. Raena would Amen dat, big time. So fur now you’re just gonna get a toss up Wednesday and Furiday till we figger it all out. And today’s gonna be one of those reviews.

 Dezi sits in a chewy box

As most of ya’ know we’re Chewy Influencers and they send us a couple purroducts every month to try out and tell you all ‘bout. Well when we got our box this month we couldn’t wait to jump right in. Some of you may ‘member me’s little health scare a little over a year ago and da subsequent nom changes mommy made ‘round here. She’d like me and Raena to be eatin’ a totally raw diet, but me’s just not ready fur dat yet, so we’s eat da next bestest thing, freeze dried raw.

 Stella and Chewy's Duck duck gose freeze dried cat food

So when mommy opened da box and we saw a bag of Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose freeze dried cat food, we thought it was dinner time. Furst let me tell ya’ a little ‘bout da freeze dryin’ purrocess. Freeze dryin’ locks in vital proteins, vitamins, minerals, natural enzymes and amino acids dat us kitties need. It also locks in da flavor so dat it still tastes furesh. Let’s see what da Chewy website says ‘bout Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried cat food. 

Key Benefits

  • Suitable for all stages of life

  • Includes parsley for added vitamin K

  • Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols

  • Pumpkin seed aids in digestion

  • Grain-free & Gluten-free formula reduces allergic reactions

  • Made in the USA!

Here’s da ingredient list fur da Duck, Duck Goose dinner: 

 

Duck (Ground with Bone), Turkey, Turkey Liver, Goose, Turkey Gizzard, Pumpkin Seed, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Phosphate Monobasic, Choline Chloride, Dried Pediococcus Acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Taurine, Tocopherols (Preservative), Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Riboflavin, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine Monnitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

Well we don’t see any of those questionable ingredients dat so many worry ‘bout and avoid. And maybe a couple little known facts ’bout an ingredient or two. Did you know dat parsley also helps with bad breath? And punkin’ seeds are pawrt of a natural de-wormer. Me knows all ’bout dat one cuz mommy used it with me when me was a baby. Anyways, da noms also come in several flavors and a doggy furmula too. And they recently started makin’ it available in several sizes. We received da 9 ounce bag, but it’s also available in a 3.5 oz. 12 oz. and 18 oz. bag dat we have on auto ship. Purrice ranges from $8.99 to $35.99 and this is a complete and balanced meal fur all life stages. So let’s get to da tastin’ and testin’.

 Bowl of Stella and Chewy's duck duck goose freeze dried nuggetsStraight outta da bag, no water added.

As you know, we always tell da truth, so dat bein’ said, we already eat Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose freeze dried dinner on a regular basis. It can be fed straight outta da bag, da way we like it, or with added water or broth. Da little nuggets are soft and mommy says there’s a small bone in each peace almost. She knows dat cuz she has to break each piece in half fur me. Yes, we are entirely too spoiled. But mommy says she wouldn’t have it any other way. Anyways, me luvs Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose. Sometimes me will pick it outta da plate and eat it furst. So me gives it a full four paws up.

 Dezi eating freeze dried noms

(Dezi yells over her shoulder) Raena!!! Do you wanna tell everypawdy what you think ‘bout da noms? 

      

       (Raena running down the hall)  Yes Sissy, fank you. I’s was in da pawdee box. Oh Catness, we’s already here. Ya’ll just ignore dat furst pawrt. (stretches paws and claws and clears throat) Well I’s luv da duck, duck, goose noms. I’s always pick ‘em outta da plate and eat those nuggets furst. They fur sure get a 4 paws up from me. And me luvs how mommy calls us to dinner. She says, “Come on girls it’s time for some duck, duck, gooooooooose.” 

 Raena eating freeze dried cat food

Yeah Raena, mommy can be silly sometimes can’t she?. And speakin’ of mommy, let’s ask her what she thinks ‘bout da Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose noms. 

 Raena peaking out of a chewy box

 

  Thank you girls. I like that it’s nutritious, good for you, doesn’t contain a lot of questionable ingredients, is made here in the USA, and most of all that ya’ll like it. The morsels are very soft and therefore we often get a bag that has a lot of crushed pieces that look a bit like sawdust. Altho’ this would be fine for kitties who eat it with water or broth mixed in (would mix up much like a pate’ food), it means waste for us. Since ya’ll won’t eat it with water or broth we need the nuggets to be intact. Thankfully, Chewy has amazing Customer Service and always makes it right. So I give Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose dinner 2 thumbs up. I would like to mention that there has been some talk about Stella and Chewy recalls. I did some research on this and found only a few recalls and that Stella and Chewy’s voluntarily issued those. I feel completely safe giving this food to you girls. 

 

Fanks mommy. So there ya’ have it, 8 paws total and 2 fumms up fur Stella and Chewy’s Duck, Duck, Goose and Chewy’s Customer Service Team. Now me knows you wanna get your own bag, so head over and check it out. And while you’re there, have a look around. Chewy carries lots of pawsum purroducts fur your furry and non furry furmily members. And you can save a few dollars by settin’ up an auto ship so you never run outta your bestest furiends supplies again. Chewy offers speedy furee shippin’ on all orders of $49.00 or more and a flat rate of $4.95 fur all other orders. To see more reviews this month head on over to da Chewy blog hop.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.
