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

 

          You never have to worry ‘bout those autoships, isn’t that right Raena? You can always skip, cancel or delay up to 24 hours prior to shipment. And Chewy has the bestest boxes ever. 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.

          ‘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?

How To Find A Bargain On The Internet

Hi everyone, mommy A here today. I’ve been blest to get to try another great non cleaning, human only product. Let me just say before the girls have a conniption, part of this post will apply to them as well. I’ve never been a big shopper. I’m a list gal. I make a list, go to the store, compare prices and only buy what’s on my list. Of course, living in a small town with limited resources and limited shopping choices made that pretty easy. However, when we got the computer, the whole world was now open to us. If you want it, you can find it on the internet. You can even find things you never knew you wanted. But, comparing prices and finding the best deal became a bit harder. I’ve always admired those coupon kings and queens, but I’m not very good at it myself. But, I still want, actually need to save money.

It’s Review Time fur mommy.

 

 

This is a sponsored post. I received the Diamond Microdermabrasion Machine in exchange for my honest opinion. As always, we only review things we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

I was recently contacted by a representative from a company called Wikibuy. I wasn’t familiar with them, but their concept isn’t new to me, so I decided to give it a try. If you’re not familiar with them either, let me tell you a bit about them. They offer a Chrome extension that finds lower prices including discounts and coupons while you shop at amazon. Or, you can go directly to their site and shop the lowest prices from there. They also automatically check and apply any active coupon codes for items in your cart. That means you can save money or at least know you’re getting the best price on most everything you buy, including all your pet needs (Petco, Pet360, and many more). That brings me to the product I received to introduce you to this great tool.

You’ve probably figured out by now, I’m a little vain, and hate aging. I’m fighting the wrinkles and gray hairs with everything I’ve got. So, when I was given my budget, I knew exactly what I wanted; it’s been on my frivolous list for a very long time. Diamond Microdermabrasion machines usually aren’t cheap, so, I did what I always do when looking for something expensive on a budget…I went to ebay.com. Yes, when we see something that we think we just can’t live without, one of the first places we check is ebay. That doesn’t mean we always get to buy it, but we do check and often add it to our list. And, Wikibuy works with ebay too. So, I found the perfect Microdermabrasion machine, brand new with warranty for $67.50. It arrived within a week and had everything I needed to get started except an instruction booklet. So, I contacted the seller and they responded within an hour and sent me a PDF of the complete instructions. As with anything, there’s good, better and best. The Pro Diamond Microdermabrasion machine I received is definitely top of the line for home use. It works perfectly and came with enough tips and filters for a years use.

I would for sure give it two thumbs up. Looks great, works great, arrived quickly, at a great price and their customer service is awesome. As for Wikibuy, I’m always up for an easy way of saving money and getting the best price. As I said earlier, the internet opens the world to you, and can sometimes be overwhelming. Anything that can make it easier is a good thing. Shopping shouldn’t be a chore, especially when shopping for everyday items. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, if you could save a little on the gift you might have enough left to still go out for dinner. Many thanks to Wikibuy and Ebay, I’m definitely enjoying my new Microdermabrasion machine. And the girls are just fine, they didn’t even miss not getting something this time. 

 

          We are at that mommy. We like it when you get to try new things too.

 

Dezi and Raena will be back tomorrow sharing their adventures with you. Thanks for letting me take a minute of your day to introduce you to an easier way to shop and a cheaper way to fight aging. lol 

 

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