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,

 

 

 

Ain’t that the truth sissy?. At least they have rabbit. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout ‘em.

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.

          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.

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.

 

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

          I’s know sissy. It just warms mine’s heart to see everypawdy join in. Our dear furiends from Meezers Mews and Terrieristical Woofs, Pipo and Dalton, joined us. Ya’ know, their house was recently broken into and some horrible peep(s) stole their things. In spite of it all, they’re so Blest that nopawdy was hurt. We don’t know how they do it, but they never miss a birthday or gotchaday in the blogosphere. We are so Blest to call ya’ll furiends. Fanky fanks fur joinin’ us. And, we’re keepin’ ya’ll in our purrayers. Now their computer was stolen, so we helped them make their boxcar.

You’d be hard pressed to find a truer furiend. She’s always there with a kind word or purrayer. We’re so Blest to call you furiend. Fanky fanks fur hoppin’ on.

See, back when mommy saved me and befur she and sissy told the world, they told awnty Ellen. Awnty Ellen made me mine’s furst ever toys and nip mat to welcome me into the world. But it’s not just me, awnty Ellen does so many pawsum things fur all in the blogosphere. Any kitty who’s ever tried her Made With Luvs toys and/or mats know just how talented and generous she is.

Chatting Cats: A Countryfied Friday

(Dezi, laying in the chair and sleeping, mews quietly a few times and then jolts awake)  MeOW Hissssss Move over RaenaBelle, your hoggin’ the mommy warmth. (Looking around and realizing she’s not in the bed and mommy is sitting across the room, she quickly runs over to the cat tree and cleans her paw.)  Kittens!!!  It seems even colder today. 

 

Dezi licks paw while sitting on cat tree and Raena looks out door from small perch

 

 

 

          It is sissy. Don’t you hear the heater keep switchin’ on? I’s heard mommy tell the counselor that she sets it on 55°F, cuz ifin it gets that cold in the house, the we obviously need some heat.  

 

Dezi bathes while sitting on cat tree and Raena looks out door from perch

 

 

 

Me’s thinkin’ she might need to turn it up a few degrees Raena. Like maybe another 10 or so. Ya’ know when the fan’s blowin’ right on ya’ circulatin’ the cold air, ya’ gotta get heat from somewhere. Me knows mommy can’t breathe ifin it gets too hot, but seriously, it ain’t s’posed to be this cold inside the house.  

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap with mouth open and tongue out

 

 

 

          I’s agree sissy. But, I’s don’t think mommy knew it was gonna turn that cold when we went to bed this meownin’. Ya’ know, a storm blew in with high winds, lots of rain and thunder boomers.  

 

 

 

 

You think me didn’t hear it Raena? Me heard it just fine. Boom, boom, boomin’ overhead and blowin’ stuffs all over the place and into windows and doors. Somethin’ kept knockin’ on our window while we were tryin’ to eat dinner. It was somethin’ else. Me thought me just might fall to pieces. 

 

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, least you didn’t run and hide out. We didn’t have to call your name once. Mommy and me are so purroud of you.  

 

 

 

 

Well fanks Raena. Me wanted to be with mommy and help her with her singin’. It always gives me sweet dreams.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

          Me too sissy. The melody was off the chain last night. I’s bet the winter rose even tried to bloom. 

 

 

 

 

Maybe Raena. Least we didn’t need any help to make it through the night.

 

Raena lays in mommy's lap with her paw to her mouth

 

 

 

          Good one sissy. In case ya’ think we’re meowin’ in code or somethin’…we are. MOL  We thought we’d try to incorpurrate the song titles into our conversation. It’s a little harder than we x’pected. But, fur all those that requested mommy to sing some country songs, we’ve finally got a few recorded and hope you enjoy them. You can also go to soundcloud and lissen to the ones we didn’t include in the posty as well as those from last year.  

 

Dezi sits on cat tree with head bowed

 

 

 

Me’s even workin’ on me’s own song. Anyways, we better run. We’ve got lots to do and not much time to do it in. 

 

Raena sits on cat tree looking up

 

 

 

          I’s gonna link us up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday sissy. 

 

Dezi bathes while sitting on cat tree and Raena looks out door from perch
