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:

Caloric Content

  1. 74 kcal/pouch

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

Bathrrom floor right at the door (approx. 4 ft. from litter box)

 

          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. You can check out the Chewy blog hop fur other pawsum purroduct reviews.

Waterlogged Thirsty Cats

MeOW We are so waterlogged and feelin’ deaf from all the noisy storms and machines ‘round here. We got our furst break in the weather yesfurday and started to visit our furiends, when mommy got word she needed to take care of some business. By the time she finished, she was so exhausted, there was no helpin’ us visit or anythin’ else fur that matter. Ifin ya’ missed our regular Service Cat Monday posty this week, don’t worry, we will return next week with another posty on aggression. Now, (Dezi hears the sound of lawn monsters) the lawn crew’s back!!! Seems their day’s gonna be Wednesday this year.

 

 Dezi lays in the chair with Raena on the back

 

          Oh sissy, I’s so hate the lawn crew days. I’s just sneeze mine’s head off all day long.

 

Me knows Raena. And, mommy’s eyes water and her nose runs. ‘Tween the nose blowin’, which by the way, she’s happy to be able to do again, and the Bless ya’s, we don’t get much else done.

 

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Thirsty Cat drinking fountain in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell the truth as we see it; and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our furiends and readers.

 

 

          Did you see the rain shower I’s made the other day? 

 

 Dezi and Raena check ou the new Thirsty Cat fountain

Hmmmmmm check out da new fountain Raena.

 

That wasn’t a rain shower Raena, that was…it was…well, it was just a yucky mess.

 

          It wasn’t yucky sissy. I’s couldn’t help it. I’s was checkin’ out our new Thirsty Cat drinkin’ fountain when I’s suddenly sneezed and water went all over the place. MOL  Mommy thought I’s had done gone and jumped in and she was jumpin’ up and yellin’ “Quit slingin’ water all over the place, Raena.” I’s looked at mommy like I’s had no idea what she was talkin’ ‘bout, and then she felt really bad fur yellin’ at me. 

 

 Dezi watches Raena head for the Thirsty Cat fountain

Wha’cha doin’ Raena?

 I’s goin’ in fur a sniff sissy. 

 

Yeah Raena, mommy always feels bad when she yells at us, ‘specially when she realizes she made the wrong assumption. What do ya’ think ‘bout our new Thirsty Cat drinkin’ fountain? 

 

 Thirsty Cat Fountain

 

          It sure is purretty, sissy. Mommy says it’s a piece of art. 

 

 

 Thirsty Cat Fountain

 

Me thinks so too Raena. Ya’ know, me had a little purroblem with me’s urinary tract a while back and as a result, mommy brought in a fountain to encourage me to drink more water. You know, when you’re searchin’ fur a fountain fur your fur babies, the choices can sometimes seem overwhelmin’. There’s a ton of them on the market. They come in plastic, steel and ceramic, and deliver water in different ways; and the purrices are just as diverse. Ifin that wasn’t enuff, us kitties have our own ideas ‘bout how we want to drink that water. 

 

Hmmmmmm A little bubbly puddle, a big bowl of puddle or a

bit of overflow. Where to drink?

 

          Yeah sissy, I’s like a little puddle to drink from and you like a stream. I’s don’t know how you even get anythin’ lappin’ at that stream in mid air?

 

 Dezi looks on as Raena goes in to get a drink from the Thirsty Cat Fountain

Does it have the stream me likes?

 

Me gets purrlenty Raena. Me just luvs a good stream. We have the worst water round here, and just ‘bout every fountain we’ve had gets a really bad calcium build up on it in less than a month. It really gets to mommy, cuz she doesn’t have the strength to scrub it off and her good ole vinegar solution doesn’t work. So, she had resorted to usin’ a plastic fountain fur us cuz it had both a puddle and a stream, and didn’t get that build up. But, as most peeps know, us kitties can have a purroblem with chin acne from usin’ plastic containers. Mommy hated tradin’ one purroblem fur another, so she kept lookin’ fur the purrfect fountain to suit our needs. 

 

          We have the bestest mommy ever, don’t we sissy?.

 

 Raena checks out the Thirsty Cat fountain up close

It smells okay sissy.

 

Yep Raena, we’re fur sure Blest. Anyways, she came across the Thirsty Cat Fountain website in her search and felt like she had struck gold. An email flurry ensued and befur ya’ could say kittens 3 times, we had our very own, one of a kind piece of Thirsty Cat drinkin’ fountain art. Mommy was shocked at how big the bowl actually was, and how bootyful it was. 

 

 Dezi sniffs the Thirsty Cat fountain

Let me smell Raena. And let me check da stream.

 

          Yep sissy, ya’ know it has to be big ifin mommy thought I’s had jumped in. MOL  It also came with an adjustable pump so mommy could control the flow of water comin’ out. Oh and the cutest ever little dots to keep it from slidin’ all over the place. It was easy peasy to set up, and comes with one filter that lasts ‘bout a year, and extra non slippin’ dots. Mommy says I’s should tell everypawdy that I’s didn’t get to play with the dots, nor should your fur babies. What a pawrty pooper. 

 

 Raena watches Dezi sniff the Thirsty Cat fountain

Yep, smells okay to me too. It’s got a great puddle all ’round da bottom

fur ya’ Raena; and even in da top there’s a bubblin’ puddle.

 

Don’t furget ‘bout that cute piece that camouflages the plug. It’s purely aesthetic, but the Thirsty Cat drinkin’ fountains really are works of art (click the name and see them being made). Each one is handmade, and one of a kind. In other words, no other kitty in the universe will have our exact fountain. Jackie and Keith make everythin’ includin’ the glazes from scratch. As a result, they are 100% food-safe and completely unique one of a kinds. And guess what’s even better…NO CALCIUM build up!!! That’s right, mommy’s cleaned our fountain several times now and was so shocked she didn’t have to try to scrub off the build up. And of course, the cleanin’ was so easy, mommy said she didn’t even mind cleanin’ it. Now that’s sayin’ somethin’.

 

 Dezi getting ready to drink from the Thirsty Cat Fountain

 

          It sure is sissy. Mommy says some of those fountains are a real pain to clean. We’ve had a few that she “thought” were easy, till we got the Thirsty Cat fountain. ‘Course there’s always been that build up thing that usually makes mommy put the fountain away cuz she just doesn’t feel like they’re clean and we stop usin’ ‘em. 

 

Yep Raena, and she’s put a few away cuz they have the wrong flow pattern and me won’t use them at all. 

 

          You and your streams, sissy. (Raena shakes head)

Now this is a stream.

 

 

Me likes what me likes Raena, and mommy says it’s okay to be picky. Me’s favorite of the Thirsty Cat Fountains are the ones that have that copper piece that makes the purrfect stream fur me. You have to get a specific type of fountain ifin ya’ wanna add any of those copper pieces at a later date. So, ifin ya’ think you’re furry might purrfur that kind of stream, check out the larger fountains. You can see all the fountains here

 

 Copper leaf attachment for Thirsty Cat fountain

This is a great stream too.

 

 

          Hey sissy, don’t furget, Thirsty Cat fountains can also be found on Etsy here. Mommy says the Thirsty Cat Fountains are a little more ‘spensive than a lot of those mass purrduced ones; but, they’re worth every penny.

 

 Raena stands beside the Thirsty Cat fountain

Hey sissy, who’s purrettier, me or da ThirstyCat fountain?

 

Yep Raena, they look bootyful in your home, and really are the purrfect size. We had a similar type ceramic fountain, but, the bowl was so small, nokitty wanted to use it, and it got that build up really fast. Fountains are a great way to entice us kitties to drink more water, and we all know how ‘purrtant that is. Me’s really glad you like our Thirsty Cat fountain. Mommy worried a bit ‘bout your drinkin’ habits at furst cuz of me’s purroblem. Fankfully, you seem to enjoy drinkin’ water. MOL

 

 Raena gets a drink from the Thirsty Cat fountain

Maybe I’s should give this tiny stream a try.

 

          I’s really ‘purreciate Jackie and Keith sendin’ us such a pawsum drinkin’ fountain, sissy. It’s so purretty I’s sometimes furget it’s there to drink from.

 

 Raena sniffs the Thirsty Cat fountain

I’s think I’s might stick with da puddle in da bowl.

 

We better wrap this up and finish brekky Raena. Hopefully, we’ll get to visit a few of our furiends befur the storms roll back in.

 

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

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.

We only bring you products we have tried or use and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

 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.

          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.)

Chatting Cats: The Purrfect Solution for Your Cat’s Need to Scratch

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Have I’s got somethin’ fur you today. Dezi, did you see our new scratcher?

 

 Raena checks out the Cat Claws Butterfly scratcher

 

          Yep Raena, me saw it. Did you know that mommy was getting’ the company’s catalogs long befur we got a catputer? They have some really pawsum scratchers. Mommy says she ‘members when scratchers were purretty much all the company had.

 

 Cat Claws MAX Butterfly cat scratcher

 

Yeah sissy, I’s heard that. But she said they had some really cool scratchers compared to what was on the regular market. She said lots of ‘em looked like real live miniature furniture. They purretty much come in all shapes and sizes to fit any kitty out there. 

 

          Sure ‘nuff Raena. Cat Claws Inc. actually got started kinda like our bloggy…by a happy accident. Vietnam Vet, Mr. Bill Seliskar worked in the corrugated box industry and offen brought home samples.

 

Ya’ reckon he left ‘em lyin’ ‘round fur his wife Ms. Gale to clean up?

  

 Raena sits atop a box and plays with a treat

 

          Oh Raena, you’ve been watchin’ too much teevee. Me has no idea where Mr. Bill put the samples, but you know us kitties, we can sniff out a box a hunnerd miles away.

 

A hunnerd miles, sissy? Really? 

 

          Well, maybe not a hunnerd miles Raena, but we can find a box in our own house, that’s fur sure. And that’s exactly what happened. Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale’s kitties found those samples and went to town sharpenin’ their claws.

 

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We received the Cat Claws MAX Butterfly cat scratcher in exchange fur our post and opinion. As always, we only tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be on interest to you, our readers and friends.

 

I’s bet Ms. Gale was happy to have those samples layin’ all over the house then. Y, Those samples purrobably saved her sofa. Ya’ know that turned her mad into glad.

 

 Dezi lays on the MAX Butterfly Cat Scratcher

 

          Seriously Raena, you gotta quit watchin’ so much teevee. Nopawdy ever said Ms. Gale was mad ‘bout havin’ those samples ‘round. Altho’ me’s sure she was happy the kitties were no longer tearin’ up her furniture. Ya’ know, humans can sure get beside themselves when we kitties sharpen our claws on their things. Anyways, bein’ so happy ‘bout their new found cat scratchin’ alternative, Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale set out to assemble some of those samples into the furst corrugated cardboard kitty scratchers. Back in 1986, their wasn’t a lot of scratchin’ options fur kitty pawrents.

 

That was way befur mine’s time, huh sissy?

(Dezi shakes her head and nods)

As all good things go, word got ‘round and peeps were knockin’ down the garage door tryin’ to get some of those scratchers Mr. Bill and Ms. Gale was makin’, right sissy? 

 

          Well Raena, there’s no evidence peeps were knockin’ down the garage door, but cat peeps sure did want a few of their own. After all, these were much more affurdable than what was already available. And believe it or not, there was a time when peeps didn’t spend much money on their kitties. Peeps had no idea we kitties need more than a box fur peein’ and food in a bowl. 

 

 Raena climbs on Cat Claws butterfly cat scratcher

 

OMC  I’s so glad mommy knows better. What kind’a life would that be? 

 

 

Back of Cat Claws MAX Butterfly Cat Scratcher,

Dat’s some serious glue they use. But it’s on da bottom and won’t be seen.

          Me can’t even ‘magine Raena, but me’s glad mommy knows better too. Anyways, the Cat Claws Scratching Pad became the furst corrugated cardboard scratcher available to the public. It was such a hit that in 1993 the business expanded. And in 2006, the furst “Scratch ‘n Shapes” came ‘bout. That would include those mini furniture scratchers. And in 2007, Cat Claws launched their new brand name, Imperial Cat.

 

Imperial Cat? OMC  We have lots of Imperial Cat stuffs sissy.

 

 Dezi sits on a box

 

          That we do Raena, that we do. Mr. Bill went to heaven in 2009 and Ms. Gale joined him in 2010; but the business stayed in the furmily. Their daughters, Ms. Ginger and Ms. Jill run Cat Claws today. And they’re still goin’ strong and makin’ great cat purroducts includin’ their signature purroduct, corrugated cat scratchers; just like the one they sent us. 

 

 Raena scratches on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

Hey sissy? Did you know they give back too? They have a wooly white mousey called the Charity mouse. And fur every Charity Mouse purchased, $5.00 goes to help with spay and neuter and help get cats adopted. Cat Claws has all kinds of fun kitty toys, scratchers, NIP, beds, memorials, and so much more. They even have some purroducts fur the doggies. And all those cat scratchers are made right here in the good ole US of A.

 

 Dezi lays on the Cat Claws butterfly cat scratcher

 

          Cat Claws is purretty pawsum Raena. We were thrilled they contacted us and luv our new M.A.X. Butterfly scratcher which came with an ample nip packet, all made in the USA. It’s a nice size too. It’s 20 1/2” L X 9” W X 3 1/2” H, and comes in red or pink fur only $24.95. They do use a purretty strong glue to attach the description page with the retail bar code, but once you sit it down, ya’ won’t see the paper remnants cuz they’re on the bottom. 

 

 Raena ;ays on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

We sure do luvs it sissy. I’s’ll race ya’ to the butterfly. Ready…Set…(Raena takes off running and meows over her shoulder) Go!!! (Raena starts scratching with all her might) You know you want a new Cat Claws scratcher yourself, so head on over and check out their newly designed website.
