          Raena:  Father’s day? Is this another special day fur mommy? Are we s’posed to be doin’ somethin’ nice fur her? Cuz ya’ know ifin we are, you already spoiled it when she had to get up befur she even got to have one sip of her meownin’ coffee.

Yeah, well, we hadn’t started celebratin’ yet Raena. Anyways, we do celebrate mommy today but that’s only cuz we don’t actually have one of those daddy’s. 

 

          So, this is a holiday fur men. What ‘bout all our uncles, sissy? Are we celebratin’ them too? 

 

Yep Raena, we are. Like with mother’s, bein’ a father is somethin’ to be celebrated whether your kids have 2 legs and skin or 4 legs and fur. Traditionally, the father did the suppurrtin’ of the family and were offen the heavy hand when it came to discipline. But times, they are a changin’, and there are more and more single family households where the mother or father have to be both. So to all the Fathers, Uncles and other men, Happy Father’s day. And to all those fillin’ the shoes of a Father, Thank you fur steppin’ up.

          Hey sissy, since we’re celebratin’ men today, why don’t we celebrate the cat man who came up with the Cat Amazing Puzzle Toy? Ya’ know, it ain’t just women who luvs us kitties. The world is full of feline luvvin’ men. We should know, we’ve got some really amazin’ uncles.

That’s true Raena, and me thinks today’s a great day to meow ‘bout the Cat Amazing Puzzle Toy. Andrey is the cat guy behind this great puzzle toy. But, he does more that just make a great eco-furiendly puzzle box, he also gives back to shelters and rescues with his Shelter and Rescue Enrichment Progam. Shelters can apply to receive their very own Cat Amazing Puzzle Toys complete with educational play guides and discounts fur new cat adoptive pawrents. You know how much we luv it when a company gives back and tries to help those kitties in need.

          We sure do sissy. That’s why we had to meow to everypawdy ‘bout this. Stay tuned, cuz we’ve got a couple of great surpurrises fur everypawdy at the end of this posty. Furst, I’s wanna meow ‘bout the Cat Amazing Puzzle Box. It arrived in a really cute flat package. That meant there would be some assembly required.

Yep Raena, and that’s not always a good thing. We don’t have any thumbs and sometimes all mommy has is thumbs. MOL  Anyways, she furinally got the Puzzle put together and looked fur just the right toy to hide in it.

          Yeah sissy, the instructions say you can hide treats or toys in it to make us kitties wanna play with it. We don’t get a lot of treats, so makin’ us hunt fur them isn’t somethin’ we’re all that innerested in. But, we do luvs toys with balls, ‘specially those lighted flashin’ balls. Just so happens, we had an extra one layin’ ‘round that mommy could put in there. 

 

Yep Raena, the Cat Amazing has 3 difficulty levels, dependin’ on your kitty’s purr-efurence. All kitties are smart, so none of the levels are too hard fur us. We purrsonally think this toy is great fur kittens and those extra curious kitties. Me purrfurs a roll with a good nip toy, but Raena…OMC  she just doesn’t stop. 

 

Raena with Cat Amazing Cat Puzzle Toy,

 

 

 

          I’s not sure ifin you’re bein’ naughty or nice sissy? However, I’s do enjoy boppin’ the flashy ball ‘round inside the Cat Amazng puzzle box.  So, we were really happy when Andrey said he’d let us give away a couple Puzzle boxes to our American furiends and even send one of those cool Shelter Enrichment kits to the shelter/rescue of our choice.

 

Dezi sniffs the cat amazing puzzle toy

 

 

 

Sure ‘nuff Raena. And, we’ve decided to let all of our furiends choose the Shelter/rescue who will receive this pawsum kit. So, we’re askin’ all of you to nominate the shelter/rescue you’d like to see receive the kit. We’ll take nominations thru Caturday 6/23/2018. Purrlease only nominate shelters/rescues in the U.S.A. and that you can purrvide shippin’ infurmation fur. Then we’ll put those names in a random drawing and pick the winnin’ shelter. 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s so x’cited. I’s can’t hardly wait to see who’s shelter’s gonna win. But hey, the fun doesn’t stop there. ‘Member, Andrey’s lettin’ us give away 2 of these great puzzles to our furiends with a U.S. shippin’ address.

Scooping Away With Clay #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Let me tell you, this GDPR thingy has the whole innernets all messed up. I’s mean, we of all kitties and peeps are happy to have our purrivacy and purrsonal infurmation purrtected; but Kittens!!! Sometimes things can go a little too far. ‘Course, you all know we’re purrobably the least tech savvy kitties ‘round, so we don’t unnerstand why so many things have been affected. Like, most of the blogger blogs we follow have their comment settings changed so that ya’ gotta use google to meow anythin’ to ‘em. Google is not our furiend. But, we did try it and within minutes we were swamped with spam, and I’s don’t mean the kind in the can that the coons like.

 

Dezi lays on cat tree with mouth open and eyes shut

C’mon furiends help us meow at ya’ and comment again.

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, me thought mommy was gonna lose it when she saw all that spam. Some of ‘em are really disgustin’ and nasty.

 

Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted

 

 

 

They sure made me blush sissy. Anyways, there is a way our blogger furiends can help us to keep visitin’ and commentin’ on their bloggies. All ya’ gotta do is change your comment settings to allow us to use our Name and URL. Yep, that’d do it. We’d be able to comment on your posty’s again and not be bombarded with all this disgustin’ spam. Now, we got that outta the way, so let’s move on to somethin’ else. We’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout pawtty boxes and their contents today.

 

          Purrlease Raena, we’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout litter. Quit tryin’ to sound fancy.

 

Dezi and Raena watch the Litter Robot Open Air Litter Box

 

 

 

Fine sissy, we’re meowin’ ‘bout litter. As most of ya’ know, we were blest with a Litter Robot Open Air Automatic litterbox last year. We luvs it fur a lot of reasons, and one of those is that you can use just ‘bout any kind of litter you want in it. ‘Course, the Litter Robot peeps recommend clay, but say any clumpin’ litter will work. That was pawsum since we really like the natural litters. But, we had noticed that we have a slight purroblem with stickage. Ya’ know, some of the clump sticks to the rubberized bottom which means it’s not completely clean each time. Mommy always comes behind us and unsticks the stickage and runs another cleaning cycle. We’ve just assumed that was cuz we have to have it set on the quickest time cuz sis Dezi won’t use a dirty pawtty box, and the clump doesn’t have enuff time to set up. So, mommy changed the settings to see what would happen. That still didn’t completely fix it, so, when we had the oppurrtunity to try out a clay litter, mommy decided to see ifin that would help.

 

Raena walks by Scoop Away Complete Clay litter

 

We received the Scoop Away Complete Clumping Cat Litter in exchange for our honest review. Neither Chewy or Scoop Away are responsible for the opinions expressed here unless otherwise stated. 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 friends and readers.

 

          Yep Raena, we received the 42 pound bag of Scoop Away Complete Performance Scented Scoopable Cat Litter from Chewy this month to try out. It costs $15.99. We can fur sure say that’s cheaper than what we normally pay fur litter, but we don’t know ifin that’s a good purrice fur clay. We can say that’s ‘bout .38¢ a pound and sounds purretty good to us. Anyways, this purrticular litter is scented. Mommy hates scented litters cuz of course, kitties hate scented litters. But, we decided to give it a try anyways. It happened to arrive the day mommy had gone to her monthly doctors ‘pointment. Our Fedex purrson is an idiot and put the box right in front of the door on the ground. After ‘bout 30 minutes and the help of our new neighbor, mommy was furinally able to get the box moved and get to the door so she could get inside. It took both ladies to shove the 42 pound bag inside the door where it then stayed fur a couple of weeks. There is no handle on the bag fur pickin’ it up, and 42 pounds is really heavy.

It sure is sissy. Befur we get to the tryin’ it, let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout it. 

   

Description

Perfect for multi-cat homes, this litter addresses all of your needs, starting with a patented formula that contains special minerals that actually trap and eliminate odors on contact—no harsh chemical or additives included! It also inhibits the growth of bacteria through the Ammonia Shield technology, which helps that pervasive ammonia smell from spreading. And with maximum clumping strength, it helps to save you precious time on cleaning.

  • Created with plant extracts for maximum odor control. No harsh chemicals or additives are used. Scoop Away litter’s patented formula contains special minerals that actually trap and eliminate odors on contact.

Scoop Away Complete Cat Litter

 

 

 

 

So, the claim is that it has maximum clumpin’ ability, tracks less and contains special minerals that trap and eliminate odors on contact. It even guarantees 10 days of odor control. We’ll see. We’re purretty sure those minerals are the purretty purrple and green pieces ya’ see throughout. Ya’ll know how much we luv purrple, right? MOL

 

Bowl of Scoop Away Cat Litter

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, we also saw ‘em on your bloomers. Girl, you gotta learn how to squat without your “wee” actually touchin’ the litter. Cuz me thought mommy was gonna break her neck tryin’ to get to you befur you started cleanin’ the purretty specks off your bloomers. Unlike the natural litter we normally use that breaks up when it gets rewetted, clay just clumps harder. It’s like all mommy could see was this huge clump o’ clay in your tummy.

 

Sissy, are you tryin’ to embarrass me? Least I’s use the pawtty box every time and make mommy happy. I’s not used to the litter stickin’ to mine’s furs. Ya’ know, that stuffs s’posed to stay in the box.

 

Clump in bowl of Scoop away cat litter

 

 

 

          You’re right Raena, it is. Fankfully, the floral purrfume smell isn’t overwhelming. We still purrfur unscented, but this one won’t kill us. MOL In other words, the smell isn’t so overpowerin’ that the whole bathroom smells like it. Since mommy can’t actually lift the bag to pour it, we can’t really meow whether it’s dusty or not. The openin’ in the top of the bag comes with a zipper seal to keep any unused litter fresh. The openin’ is really small, so it made it hard on mommy to ‘dip’ out litter to put in our boxes. As fur trackin’, we find it tracks ‘bout as much as most other litters and it also gets stuck to the furs. Ifin you’re a short haired kitty this won’t be as big of a purroblem as it is fur us longer haired kitties. That stuff’ll stick to anythin’ that’s wet. This of course is very disturbin’ to mommy who doesn’t want our tummies full of clay.

 

Scooped clump of scoop away cat litter

 

 

 

Yep sissy, it is sticky. I’s tried to spit that piece I’s cleaned off mine’s bloomers out over and over again, but it just wouldn’t leave mine’s tongue. That meant I’s had to get an extra dose of malty (hairball paste). Cuz we mixed the Scoop Away with our normal litter, mommy put some in a bowl to test out the clumpin’ factor. Mommy says it clumps purretty well. She also says she ‘members now just what that house I’s came from smelled like. The amonia smell eminatin’ from the Litter Robot waste drawer is pawfully overpowerin’. So, we don’t think the Scoop Away Complete does much fur long term odor control. 10 days? No Way, we say.

The waste drawer generally gets full and changed after ‘bout 5 to 7 days, dependin’ on how many times it’s used. We still have a second pawtty box that gets used and mommy has to scoop into our Litter Genie. Normally we don’t smell anythin’ comin’ from the waste drawer or the Litter Genie till mommy actually opens them to empty and clean. But, since we added the Scoop Away Complete clay to the pawtty boxes, the amonia smell takes hold after ‘bout 2 hours in the drawer. The Litter Genie tends to hold the smell till you open the lid to dispose of another clump. In the pawtty box itself, it will be overpowerin’ immediately ifin the clump gets broken. As fur whether or not it helped our stickage purroblem in the Litter Robot, the answer is sort of. There is far less stickage with the addition of the clay litter. However, the smell is somethin’ we can’t abide. Mommy would rather come behind me and recycle and dump the rest of the clump than put up with the amonia smell. I’s meow fanky fank ya’ mommy, cuz ifin you think it’s strong in the rest of the room, ya’ oughtta smell it inside the Litter Robot itself. Hmmmpht

There’s a very small opening for pouring or scooping

out of bag to add to litter box. Has a resealable zipper.

 

 

 

          Yeah Raena, we really have been spoiled when it comes to the cleanliness and smell of our pawtty boxes. All in all, ifin ya’ like clay litters, this is one to try. You’ll need to have someone on hand who can lift 42 pounds, but we think it’s a good value fur the purrice. So long as you scoop regularly into a covered trash can, their shouldn’t be too much purroblem with stink, but hold your breath/nose befur ya’ lift the lid to depawsit new clumps. MOL Watch doggies and children and long furred kitties and clean any stray litter off of them immediately. We’re still advocates fur unscented litter, but ifin ya’ just think you need a scent, this one isn’t overpowerin’ and shouldn’t be too much fur kitty.

Great tips sissy. As always, you can find just ‘bout everythin’ ya’ need fur the furry, finned, scaled and unfurred family members in your house at Chewy.com. And there’s a gift of every box. They always offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders over $49.00 and flat rate speedy shippin’ on all others. You can save an extra 5% by settin’ up an auto delivery so you never run out of food, litter, treats or anythin’ else ya’ might need. But don’t worry, cuz you can skip, cancel or delay any time. You can also add to any auto delivery up to 24 hours prior to shipment. And you can shop with confidence. Even ifin you order the wrong thing or kitty suddenly decides they don’t like the food they’ve eaten furever, Chewy customer service will make it right. Check out other product reviews this month here. Guess we better go now. I’s think that Chewy box is callin’ mine’s name.

Chatting Cats: Raena’s KitNip Birthday Box

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s been so crazy ‘round here lately and we’re so far behind, I’s don’t think we’ll ever get all caught up. Then mommy goes and says somethin’ like “All caught up is a relative statement, baby. Sometimes, life has to take precedence over play. If we want to keep a roof over our heads, then mommy has things she needs to do to keep that roof. And that sometimes means spending time running errands, making copies, calls and getting together all pertinent paperwork to re-certify our lease.” Hmmmpht How am I’s s’posed to argue with that? 

 

Dezi sits atop the liberty cat tree and Raena lays on the top ledge

 

 

 

          You’re not Raena, you’re just s’posed to accept it and be glad that mommy takes good care of us. Now, me thought we were gonna meow ‘bout that box we got just in time fur your Birthday last month.

 

Raena checks out the the KitNip box

 

 

 

We are sissy, I’s was just makin’ sure mommy knows how furustrated I’s am ‘bout all the time she’s spendin’ doin’ things that don’t include us havin’ fun or visitin’ our furiends. But, you’re right, that was a purretty fun box we got. The peeps at Kit Nip Box sent us one of their pawsum subscription boxes just in time fur mine’s Birthday. Unlike mommy with her birthday purresent, I’s had to wait to open mine’s.

 

          Why don’t we meow a bit ‘bout the KitNip Box befur we get to what was inside. 

 

KitNip box

 

 

 

Good idea sissy. The KitNip Box is a monthly subscription box filled with goodies fur the felines in your home. They have 2 different box plans, $19.99 a month and $29.99 a month. Fur $19.99 you get 5 purroducts hand picked fur kitty and 7 in the $29.99 box. Boxes are shipped out on the 1st and 15th of each month and your credit card is charged 1 – 7 days prior to each shipment. They currently ship boxes to addresses in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Ifin ya’ live somewhere else, they say to call their customer service number to see what they can do to get a box to ya’. Shippin’ is furee fur the U.S. and $6.95 – $7.95 fur other countries.

 

Dezi sniffs toys from the KitNip box

 

 

 

          Don’t furget to meow ‘bout the charity work Raena. Each month the KitNip Box peeps donate a portion of the proceeds and products to shelters, rescues, TNR efforts and other feline welfare causes, like the Paw Project, Wayside Waifs, SAAP and more. Y, any organization can apply fur help just by contactin’ ‘em.

 

Raena sniffs the Pure Bites minnow treats

 

 

 

We always luvs it when a company helps out those kitties less furtunate than us, don’t we sissy?. Anyways, let’s get on with the goodies inside that box. Our box had 5 toys and a bag of Pure Bites freeze dried fish treats; minnows the bag said. Let me tell ya’ those were the biggest minnows ever. Mommy says she used to fish and use minnows as bait, but, she’d never seen one as big as these. Seems the whole fish was freeze dried and cut into large chunks…too big fur us so mommy had to break up a piece befur we’d even look at it. As most of ya’ know, we’re not really fish eaters here and these treats were no x’ception. Uh huh, We weren’t havin’ ‘em. On to the toys. There was a couple different mousies that are just the right size fur carryin’ ‘round and playin’ with. And, there was a new wand toy with a soft plushie at the end. 

 

Dezi turns her head away from the Pure Bites Minnow treat

That’s a big ole chunk ‘o minnow.

 

 

 

          Did you see the umbrella Raena? Me still hasn’t figgered out what we’re s’posed to do with that?. Me kind’a liked the big yellow cat face. Mommy needs to soak it in some nip or silvervine and then it’ll be just purrfect to roll ‘round on. Ya’ know, as subscription boxes go, the KitNip box is okay. Me would give it 2 paws up, mostly cuz they give back to feline charities.

 

We received the KitNip Box 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. All opinions expressed here are our own. 

 

Yeah sissy, I’s agree. We’re purretty spoiled and have some of the bestest toys on the meow-kit. But, we think this would make a great gift fur any kitty in your life. I’s would give it 2 paws up as well. Mommy said she thought it was a bit overpriced, but it’s on purr/par with all the other subscription boxes out there. We were really x’cited that the peeps at KitNip Box are lettin’ our furiends and readers save 15% off their furst box when they use our special coupon code: DEZIZ. I’s sure did ‘purreciate receivin’ our box fur mine’s birthday. ‘Course I’s luvs gettin’ gifts any day of the week. Meowin’ of Birthdays, I’s hope we get somethin’ special fur mommy’s Birthday this weekend. You did meow that mommy celebrates us on her special days, right sissy?

 

Dezi looks over the toys from the KitNip box

 

 

 

          She does Raena, but we should purrobably try to do somethin’ nice fur her too. Let’s go put our heads together and see what we can come up with. 

 

I’s right behind ya’, sissy. I’s know the furst thing we can do is avoid purrjectile vomitin’. Anyways, we’ll see ya’ll soon. 

 

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