Tell All Tuesday: Keeping The Gut Healthy #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s comin’ to ya’ live from the new swamp lands of Oklahoma. Just kitten. MOL  Altho’ there’s some floodin’ goin’ on, we’re not swampy…least not yet. And the better news is that sissy, has been hangin’ out with me and mommy ‘stead of hidin’ huntin’  UTB. 

 

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree while Raena scratches her neck on the ledge below

 

 

 

          Me sure has Raena. Altho’, me’s thinkin’ you might wanna do some hidin’ UTB today. Me heard mommy say somethin’ ‘bout it bein’ your turn to go to the V-E-T. 

 

 

Raena sits on the table at the Vet's office

 

 

 

What are you meowin’ ‘bout sissy? I’s done went to the V-E-T this year. Don’t you ‘member? Mommy took me in cuz me’s eyes were all gunky. 

 

 

          Yeah, well, you didn’t get stabbed at that ‘pointment, did ya’? Cuz that’s the kind of ‘pointment you have today. Our State requires that we get a rabies shot every year or three, and your time’s up. 

 

Nooooooo!!! I’s don’t wanna go get stabbed and jabbed. Furiends, come save me, purrlease!!!

          Hmmmmpht  Me doesn’t think anypawdy can save ya’ from this Raena. Befur ya’ go, let’s meow ‘bout the Fortiflora we got from Chewy this month. Ya’ know when mommy changed us over to raw food she started addin’ ProBiotics to our meals to help with keepin’ our guts healthy. But befur that, mommy added Fortiflora to me’s meals to help me switch from kibble to raw. See, peeps seem to think that it tastes like kibble and will fool us kitties. Me wasn’t fooled. Nope not fur even a minute. But hey, it tasted purretty good, so me obliged mommy and ate me’s new noms.

 

Fortiflora Probiotics

 

 

 

Really sissy? Is that what kibble tastes like? I’s never had kibble befur. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout it.

Mommy says it kind’a looks like blood when ya’ dissolve it in water. It’s a really fine brownish powder that gets sprinkled over a kitty or doggy’s noms.

 

Dezi sniffs the box of Fortiflora

 

 

 

          Me’s not so sure it makes us want to eat more, but it doesn’t make us turn our noses up at dinner either. It’s made by Purina and comes in 2 different sizes, 1) 30 count box or 6) 30 count boxes and costs $27.99 to $167.94. Accordin’ to the directions, kitty should get 1 whole packet daily. Mommy usually divides the packets t’ween us and our meals. We get a little over each meal. Me likes it just fine and gives it 3 paws up.  What ‘bout you Raena? 

 

Dezi and Raena eat out of their new dishes

 

 

 

It’s okay sissy. I’s give it a couple paws up too. Mommy says it’s a bit on the ‘spensive side considerin’ it’s only a 30 day supply fur one kitty. That means ifin ya’ give it as directed, it’s almost a dollar a day on top of the cost of kitties noms. So, mommy gives it one thumb up. As always, we give Chewy all paws and thumbs up. They have purroducts fur the whole family and offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up; as well as speedy flat rate shippin’ on all other orders. And, their customer service peeps are just pawsum and available 24/7. You can even set up an autoship so you never run out of your pet’s favorites and save an additional 5% on most everythin’.

Chewy nor Purina are responsible for the opinions expressed unless otherwise stated.

With Christmas right ‘round the corner, you know you oughtta check ‘em out. Me hopes mommy adds a little birthday surprise to our next autoship fur me. 

 

And me too sissy. I’s wanna surprise too. 

 

Dezi and Raena bather atop the Liberty cat tree

 

 

 

          ‘Course you do Raena, but it’s not your birthday, it’s me’s time. Meowin’ of special surprises, ‘member that Cat Amazing puzzle toy? Well, Andrey’s gone back to the drawin’ board and has created one called the Epic. Check it out the kickstarter campaign right now. Y, me even bets it’ll be available at Chewy in no time.

Tell All Tuesday: Piddle Pads And Cat Diapers, Oh My

Raena:  Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Can anypawdy hear me over all these thunder boomers? Mommy, I’s don’t think anypawdy can hear me. (Raena looks around from her perch at the door and sees mommy taking photos of a very displeased Dezi.)  Sissy!!! What in the world are you wearin’ sissy?

 

 

Dezi layd in chair with diaper

 

 

 

          Dezi:  Nuffin!!! Me ain’t wearin’ nuffin’ but me’s furs Raena!!! Mommy get this thing off me, right now!!! Can’t you see it doesn’t fit? Me has too much tail floof. Besides, what self respectin’ kitty belle would wear such a thing? Me doesn’t care that it would be helpful. Me wishes you had known ‘bout it when sis Lexi was sick too. She would’a fur sure told you where to put it. Me can hear her now. The hissin’ and screamin’…it would’a been epic. What’s that? You think she would’a worn this, just cuz you asked her too? Well, guess we’ll never know. Me can tell ya’ that me will have to be one sick kitty befur you ever come near me with that thing again. Hmmmmpht 

 

 

Pet Parents Brand cat diapers

 

 

 

Sissy, you shouldn’t meow at mommy like that. (Raena sees mommy A heading her way with the diaper and runs.) Don’t you dare mommy!!! I’s a good girl. I’s use the pawtty box every single time. And I’s always try to make it to a piddle pad befur I’s hurl any hairballs. Meowin’ of, I’s know you’re happy that the new Washable Piddle Pads don’t move ‘round all over the floor, but I’s want mine’s slide back. What happened to the cheap plastic ones? 

 

Dezi sniffs diapers

 

 

 

          Well Raena, since you like to use them as slides, they don’t stay put and sometimes get all torn up. Mommy says they won’t absorb much if the piddle absorbing middle is shredded. So, when the peeps at the Pet Parent Brand reached out and offured to send us a couple of washable ones, mommy jumped on it. Me’s not sure why she thought we needed the diapers too tho’. Me’s not wearin’ those, they pinched me’s tail. 

 

Raena sits pretty in the hallwayYou can see how much nicer the Washable piddle pad I’s sittin’ on looks.

 

 

 

You do have a lotta fluff back there sissy. Mommy said she had to order by waist size and not tail floof. Anyways, they may come in handy someday. You know, you’re no spring kitty anymore.

          HiSssssssss  Watch it Raena, me’s still got it. Me ain’t that old. Anyways, the Piddle Pads and even the diapers are really well made. Mommy said she was really impurressed by them. They’re sturdy, nice and thick, very absorbent and washable. And mommy says they wash up really well too. No shrinkage or bleeding of colors.

Tell All Tuesday: Play Dates And Prayers #PranciesPrayer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Hurry, gather ‘round, our playdate guest will be here any minute now. (Raena frantically surveys her kingdom to make sure everything’s picked up and clean.  She wants her playdate to feel welcome)  Sissy, are you ready, Prancie’s gonna be here soon?. Why don’t you ask mommy ifin we can put some silvervine down on the scratchers. I’s bet Prancie would luvs that. 

 

Dezi plays on cat scratcher

 

 

 

          Raena, calm down. Me’s sure Prancie will have fun. Besides, we’re gonna have a story time with her new book. You know, the one awnty Ellen sent us to review. There’ll be purrlenty of time to play later. Now, help me set up our tunnel pawtal so she doesn’t smack into the door. (Dezi and Raena get the tunnel set up and have a quick bath before Prancie arrives. Suddenly they hear the swoosh of the portal) Hurry Raena, she’s here!!! 

 

Hey Prancie, good to see ya’ girl. How was your trip? Wanna lay down on the scratcher and rest a minute? We’ve been lookin’ furward… 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Calm down, let her ketch her breath fur kittens sake. Sorry ‘bout her Prancie, she only has one speed and it’s full on all the time.

 

Dezi and Raena sit on floor looking at Prancie laying on cat scratcher

 

 

 

     No problem Dezi, there’s a few of those at my house too. With so many siblings, you can always count on mayhem. And in the 13 years I’ve lived at my house, I’ve seen it all. Thanks for inviting me over girls, I’m happy to be here. This scratcher is pretty comfy. 

 

It is, isn’t it Prancie. Besides mommy’s lap, it’s purrobably our next favorite seat. So, do have any besties at your house? 

 

     Well Raena, Phoebe and I hit it off right from the start. I pretty much get along with everybody, but yeah, I’d say Phoebe was my bestie. She is missed. (Prancie drifts off in memory for a minute)

 

Dezi lays in stroller looking at Prancies Prayer

 

 

 

          Let’s meow ‘bout your book fur a minute Prancie. We luvved readin’ your story. Altho’ me has to admit, it made us very sad that somepawdy could kick you out into the cold mean streets. We’re such pam-purred pusses, we can’t even ‘magine what you must’ve went thru.

 

     It was quite a shock to me too Dezi. It got so cold, and I was so hungry, I almost gave up. My ears were so cold and then they weren’t. Part of them died and fell off. It sure was a rough life. When I saw that manger with fresh hay part of me wanted to just curl up in it and die. But, when I saw the people who would become my forever family, a little spark of hope welled up inside me and gave me the strength to ask God and them for help.

 

Raena looks at Prancie's Prayer book commenting

 

 

 

Ooh Ooh, that’s mine’s second favorite pawrt, Prancie. Mine’s favoritest pawrt is when awnty Ellen and uncle David adopted you and let you stay with them. 

 

Raena sits on cat tree looking over at Prancie laying on cat tree

 

 

 

     Well Raena, my dad wasn’t my biggest cheerleader at first. But, I finally wrapped him around my paws. I’m a big daddy’s girl for sure. One of my favorite things is the chicken he feeds me off his plate. As you all would say, I’m one blest kitty, that’s for sure. 

 

Raena stands on cat tree looking at Prancie's Prayer book

I’s luvs the pics.

 

 

You sure are Prancie. I’s know sissy and me are so Blest to have you and your whole family as furiends. We think your ears give you character. We know ya’ll didn’t include the story of your ears in your book, but we’re glad you meowed ‘bout ‘em here. Peeps need to unnerstand, that just cuz we kitties have furs doesn’t mean we don’t get cold and suffer from weather the same as they would. We think your book would make a purrfect gift fur any occasion. And, with Christmas comin’ soon, we hope it makes it unner the tree fur lots of little humans.

 

Dezi and Prancie lay in the wheelchair chatting

 

 

 

          We should tell everypawdy where they can get their own copy girls. It’s available on amazon and Barnes and Noble fur $12.95. And, peeps can also order it directly from you and awnty Ellen at 15andMeowing.com fur $10.00. You can also get the kindle version fur $2.99. All proceeds go to help suppurrt all the kitties livin’ with Prancie and awnty Ellen.

 

     Thanks Dezi. I also brought a copy to give away. Mom says we’ll ship it anywhere in the U.S..

Fanky fank you Prancie and awnty Ellen. We luvs give aways. We hope all our U.S. readers get in on this. And fanky fank you fur comin’ fur a playdate. We totally luvved your book. We also learned that awnty Ellen has a degree Elementary Education and that’s what sparked her idea to write your story as a children’s book. Like ya’ll, we believe that all kitties and even woofies deserve luvvin’ furever homes. The ‘purrtant thing to ‘member, is that kitties don’t act out of spite. There’s no bad kitty. Like Prancie, we purray that all anipals know the luvs and warmth of a furever home. And now, it’s time to play!!!
