Freeze Dried Furiday #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, it’s RaenaBelle. Is anypawdy out there?  Mommy and sis Dezi said today’s somethin’ called black Furiday, and dat a lot of our furiends are gonna be out standin’ in lines today tryin’ to get a bargain. We purray you all stay safe. I’s not sure ‘bout those bargains. Mommy spent a little time yesfurday lookin’ at “ads” and sayin’ everythin’ was way too spensive, and dat only a few items at each store was actually a good deal. Anyways, we’re all right here tryin’ to recover from yesfurdays meal, and I’s ask sis Dezi ifin I’s could tell ya’ ‘bout da Halo Kiblets we got from Chewy this month as Chewy Influencers.

So, as most of ya’ know, our favorite treats and meals are of da freeze dried variety. So when Halo came out with a line of freeze dried noms, we just had to try them. Da Cage-Free Chicken formula was our choice. They’re also available in Salmon and Turkey, and just Turkey for cats; and Beef and Cage-Free Chicken for dogs. They come in 6 ounce bags and vary in purrice from $14.99 to $17.91. As a lot of you know, sis Dezi and me like teeny tiny bites. Mommy usually has to break up anythin’ freeze dried dat comes in da house. But, da Halo Kiblets/Mix ‘n Mores are already bite size morsels, so no breakin’ needed. And cuz of their size, mild crunchiness and irregular shape, they would make a purrfect option fur those kibble addicted kitties, as they can be served wet or dry. So let’s see what Chewy says are da key benefits. 

Key Benefits

  • Delight and satisfy your cat’s inherent and ancestral love of meat by adding flavorful freeze-dried topper to dry or wet food

  • Made with limited ingredients, with whole chicken as the first ingredient

  • Topping provides highly digestible essential nutrients for optimal health and vitality

  • Whole chicken is pasteurized, crumbled, flash frozen and freeze-dried to lock in the nutritional value of the chicken without any dehydration

  • Formulated without artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives for an easy-to-digest topper with wholesome natural flavor

And here’s da ingredients: 

Chicken, chicken liver, whole flaxseed, salt, salmon oil, mixed tocopherols (a preservative), taurine, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, vitamin e supplement, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, copper sulfate, niacin supplement, manganese sulfate, d-calcium pantothenate, vitamin a supplement, riboflavin supplement, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin d3 supplement, vitamin b12 supplement, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid

 

 

 

Halo Freeze dried kiblets

See? They kinda look like kibble.

 

As you can see, altho’ da name says Kiblets/Mix ’n Mores these can clearly be served as a complete meal. And they don’t include any of those questionable ingredients our humans try to avoid. Of course they can also be fed as a treat or added to your pets normal food. Mommy initially gave us a few as a treat, but we purrfur them mixed in with our regular noms. Notice I’s said we purrfur, so ya’ know dat means we like ‘em. They’re a great bite size piece and taste purretty good ifin I’s do say so mines self. There seems to be a bite every now and then dat has a darker color to them and are a bit crunchier than da others. Mommy says it’s purrobably da liver. No purroblem fur us, tho’, we just spit ‘em out. So, fur dat reason, and da one mommy will talk ‘bout in a minute, I’s give ‘em a hearty 3 paws up.

Sissy? Wanna tell everypawdy what you think ‘bout da Halo Kiblets? 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

Fanks Raena. You’re doin’ a great job by da way. Da Halo Kiblets are da purrfect size right outta da bag. Like Raena said, we’re not crazy ‘bout freeze dried liver tho’ so there are a few pieces we both spit out. But hey, overall, me likes ‘em just fine. Fur da same reasons as Raena, me gives them 3 paws up.

Fanky fanks sissy. Let’s check in with mommy now.

 Dezi and Raena eating

Thank you darlin’. I really like the fact that both you girls will eat the Halo Kiblets, even if you spit out a few pieces. I’m a picky eater too, so why would I be surprised that ya’ll are?. I’m happy with the ingredient list. I do think they’re a bit pricey, but this seems to be a theme with most freeze dried foods and Chewy definitely has the best price on the internet. Because of the size of each piece, each bag is a full 6 ounces and there’s very little waste. Anyone who has ever bought a bag of freeze dried food knows that there is often quite a few broken or crumbled and powdered pieces that amount to waste. Especially when your kitties are “biters” and not lickers or lappers. So all in all, I give them a thumb up.

We’re gonna wrap it up fur now. I’s have a fridge to stand in front of. We’re joinin’ Rascal and Rocco fur da weekly Pet Parade. And we really want to thank you all fur sharin’ sweet Hopes’ story and fundraiser. We’re gonna be a bit busy this weekend. Da neighbors furmily is emptyin’ her ‘pawrtment and dat has sis Dezi and me a little freaked out, so mommy plans to spend a lot of time with us. They’re really noisy, bangin’ on walls and screamin’ at each other in da ‘pawrtment and outside. We’re a really calm and mostly quiet household so this behavior is kinda upsetting to us. Even da ambulance ain’t this noisy. So we’ll be by to visit as soon as we can.

BoxieCat Clay #ChewyInfluencer

Dezi sits on bench

Meowllo and welcome to me’s world. You know me’s bloggy is called Deziz World fur a reason. Pawrently back when we started bloggin’ me was a little tyrant Princess kinda like Raena is now and mommy used to say it was my world and we’re all just livin’ in it. Anyways, ifin you’ve ever wondered how me’s bloggy got it’s name, dat’s it. On another note, we have a pawsum review fur ya’ today. As you know, we are Chewy Influencers and as such, each month we get to try new purroducts and tell you all ‘bout them. This month we chose a purroduct just fur all of you. Why is me comin’ to you from da pawdee box room you ask? Well, we get asked a lot ‘bout what kind of litter we recommend. As most of ya’ know, we’re natural litter kitties, and mommy luvs da flushability of natural, so it works fur us. But there’s a lot of peeps dat fur whatever reason purrfurr clay litter. We don’t really have a clue ‘bout what might be bestest among da clay litters. Mommy can’t even ‘member da last clay litter she bought. So, when we were given da oppurrtunity to try out a new clay litter, we thought ‘bout all of you clay users and jumped on it.

We received a 16 pound bag of BoxieCat all natural scent free premium clumping litter. Mommy said da stark white shiny bag and light blue writing made it look “clean”.  (leans in and whispers) She says dat’s somethin’ da women folk will unnerstand. Altho’ it does come in two more furmulas, Extra Strength scent free and Gently Scented. Da purrice ranges from $17.99 to $18.99. As always you can save ifin you set up an auto ship. And dat savings is on every shipment, not just da furst one. Da key benefits listed on da chewy website are as follows:

Key Benefits

  • Clumps instantly

  • Scoops easily, stays clean

  • Eliminates ammonia odors

  • 99.9% dust free

  • Resists tracking

  • Longer lasting

  • For single & multiple cats

 BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

Anyways, When it arrived mommy immediately took it outta da box so Raena could have a new play toy, da box not da litter. 

      I’s luvs those Chewy boxes sis Dezi. They are sooooo much fun. Mommy even let me play a little befur she got da box emptied.

 Raena sitting on the BoxieCat Cat litter in a chewy box

Okay Raena, but we’re still not reviewin’ da boxes. Now back to da litter. Mommy said it was like liftin’ a ton of bricks. Fur any who aren’t furmiliar with dat expression, it means it’s Heavy. It’s a full 16 pounds and feels like more. Now here’s a little side note fur ya’, notice da name of da litter says “natural”? Mommy says she had never really thought ‘bout it when she says dat we be natural litter kitties, so she immediately picked up da dictionary and looked up da word clay. Here’s what she found out. Clay is a fine grained natural rock or soil that is plastic due to it’s water content or when wet and is used to make bricks. Hmmmmm  Dat’s really innerestin’. Ifin ya’ have a kitty with feline acne, ya’ might wanna think ‘bout dat.  

 BoxieCat Clay Cat Litter

       Ya’ reckon dat’s where dat sayin’ came from sissy? You know, like a ton of bricks?  

Me doesn’t know Raena. Where do you get these questions from anyways?.

 Back to what me was sayin’. Da BoxieCat clay litter is NOT flushable, so there’s no way mommy could mix it with our normal litter. She got out a new box and cut open da bag. So far so good. Dat means there was no dust poofin’ outta da bag. Now ‘member this bag was really heavy, so mommy got a bench to set it on and pour from. (She usually uses a bench cuz she’s not posed to be liftin’ stuffs.) Oh me cats, dust was all up mommy’s nostrils and in her face. Maybe ifin da bag had been closer to da box dat wouldn’t have happened. Da bag is resealable, but we’re big kitties, and have jumbo or giant sized pawdee boxes so we needed da whole bag. Mommy did try da sealer to check it’s functionability, and found it to be difficult to seal. Once mommy got da BoxieCat litter spread out in da new box, it was ‘bout 1” to 1-1/2” deep. Now mommy had been told dat Raena was usin’ clay in her furmer residence (We highly doubted dat since she didn’t seem to know what a pawdee box was and used da piddle pads instead) so mommy expected her to be da furst to use da BoxieCat litter. 

       Dat’s not very nice of you to say sissy. I’s coulda been scared, or just not liked… 

(Dezi butts in)  Okay Raena, me’s sorry. Now can we get back to our review? 

        Fank you sissy, I’s sorry fur buttin’ in. Do you want me to tell everypawdy ’bout it? 

No Raena, me will take it from here.

 

BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

Well, it’s been down since da day after we received it a few weeks ago and neither one of us has even gotten in da box. Mommy hasn’t even caught us sniffing it and not a paw purrint one. So we can’t tell you anythin’ ‘bout it’s odor controlling capabilities. Nor can we say much ‘bout da dust factor as kitty claws and digs. But, mommy did finally take some out and put it in a bowl to check it’s clumping purropurrties. Da BoxieCat clay litter clumps fast and hard and sure nuff had a flat top. Da clumps are also quite heavy and should be disposed of in da trash can. Somethin’ to note fur long haired kitties, da liquid spread out fast and left a wide gummy wet clump. As fur tracking, mommy can say dat by looking at it and based on her many years of experience, it’s going to track. But, litter tracking is just one of those things dat go along with sharin’ your life and home with a kitty and a litter box. Get a good vacuum and just enjoy your furry purrer.

 BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

So what’s our rating fur da BoxieCat clay clumping litter? It’s made right here in da USA, so fur us dat’s a plus. There was no scent other than dat of clay. This is always a pawsitive as we cats don’t like scents in our toilets.  It clumps hard and fast. A good thing especially ifin you have more than one kitty or a line at da pawdee box. There was a dust cloud when pouring from a foot above da box. It is on da heavy side, but not any more so than similar clay litters of similar size (mommy checked around). Mommy thinks it’s a bit purricy fur a clay litter based on her research. But, ifin you’re one of those dat luvs your clay litter, this would be a purrfect choice. Unscented will get us on your side every time. A big paw up and thumb up fur dat. And mommy says clay makes fur excellent face and body masks (mommy kept out a little fur her own use when furst opening the bag).  

       OMC Dezi are you sayin’, Is dat what mommy had on her face da other day?  

 Raena standing on the BoxieCat cat litter and looking up at the camera

Creamy Bisque #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy and happy Wednesday to ya’. We got some great questions from me’s Service Animal posty, and we’ll be answerin’ them and so much more in our next installment on Monday. In da meantime, me has some noms to tell ya’ ‘bout. As ya’ know we be pawrt of da Chewy blogging family and get to try out new things every month. This month we knew we were gonna have a kitten in da house so mommy looked at da offerings really careful like and chose a couple foods dat are good fur all life stages. Dat means both Raena and me can eat it and it will be nutritionally balanced.

So, dat bein’ said mommy chose da Solid Gold Holistic Delights in Creamy Bisque with chicken and coconut milk. Now these come in 3 ounce packets, 12 to a case for $14.28. They are all grain free and da chicken bisque we received also says it’s gluten free. And as me said befur, it’s appropriate fur all life stages. Here’s what’s in it:

Ingredients

Water sufficient for processing, chicken, tuna, pea protein, coconut milk, carrot, potato, dried egg, tricalcium phosphate, salt, sunflower oil, xanthan gum, magnesium sulfate, tapioca starch, taurine, zinc glycine complex, choline chloride, potassium chloride, ferronyl iron, vitamin e supplement, niacin supplement, manganese glycine complex, selenium proteinate, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin a supplement, vitamin b12 supplement, copper glycine complex, pyridoxine hydrochloride, calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement, biotin supplement, vitamin d3 supplement, folic acid, potassium iodide, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin k) 

Solid Gold claims dat da rich coconut milk provides much needed calcium that’s easily digested and gentle on kittys’ tummy. Da Holistic Delights pouches come in 6 flavors. Altho’ da name of our choice says chicken, it includes quite a bit more tuna than chicken. Mommy’s basing dat on smell alone. Da chicken doesn’t contain carageenan, so those of you who look fur dat can rest easy. Anyways, we know you wanna know what it looks like and ifin we liked it.

Raena poses with Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque cat food

I’s a natural, don’t ya’ think?

 

Well me didn’t even wanna try it. As we’ve told you many times, mommy doesn’t feed us much fish, so me’s just not used to it. And da smell emanatin’ from me’s plate was just too much and me wouldn’t even go near it. Mommy tried spoonin’ a little of da broth to me. Me does like a little milk and mommy won’t let me have it. You know us kitties be lactose intolerant, and mommy purr-furs not to have to clean me’s bloomers ifin she doesn’t have to. Anyways, me didn’t want da broth either. Of course me has to give it a paw up fur bein’ grain free, gluten free and not containin’ so many of da questionable ingredients. So mommy moved on to Raena. Raena, do you wanna tell everypawdy what you thought ‘bout da Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque with Chicken and coconut milk? 

 Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque Chicken and Coconut milk cat food

Fanks Dezi, I would luvs too. I’s had some good eatin’ since comin’ here to live with mommy and sis Dezi. When mommy furst put mines plate down I went in whole head furst. It looked kinda milky cuz mommy adds a lot of water to mines meals. Me started lappin’ it up, and then me discovered there was bites in da milk; really small pieces of meat and veggies. I’s ate ‘bout half da plate befur turnin’ mines nose up, tryin’ to cover it up and walkin’ away. Mommy left it down fur ‘bout 35 minutes and I did return and eat more. Unlike mines usual meal plate; it didn’t get licked clean. I have eaten da Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque a few more times since then, but it’s always da same; I eat a little and walk away. So I would give it 2 paws up. 

 Raena eating Holistic Delights Creamy Bisque Chicken and Coconut milk cat food

Fanks Raena, glad you liked it. Mommy says she would have to give it a thumb up cuz of da grain and gluten free nature. She likes dat da proteins are second and third on da list. However, she said it should be called chicken and tuna cuz of da amount of tuna included. And a side note somethin’ in it ‘pawrently gives Raena gas. OMC Dat’s not somethin’ ya’ wanna smell.

Anyways, we luv our Chewy. They’ve revamped da site and carry even more items than befur. You can get supplies fur your furries and non-furry pets. They always have great purrices and offer speedy free shipping on all orders of $49.00 or more and flat rate ahippin’ on all orders under $49.00. You can set up an auto ship so you never run out of your pets favorites. But don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay anytime. And we think Chewy’s customer Service is tops. What are ya’ waitin’ fur? Go on, check ‘em out. And me wanted to say a meowsy big fank you to those of ya’ dat have told us you’re now shoppin’ at Chewy cuz of our reviews.
