Chatting Cats: Happy Thanksgiving Slow Blinks

Hey everypawdy, are ya’ there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready fur Fanky Fanksgivin’? I’s sure is. (Dezi walks up to Raena and nose bumps her) Hey sissy, are you ready fur tomorrow? You know we’re gettin’ a special treat cuz not only is it Fanky Fanksgivin’ but it’s also your gotchaday. By the way, do you know why mommy keeps snatchin’ me up and cryin’? She gets all mushy and soaks mine’s furs to mine’s skin. I’s swear, I’s had more baths the last couple of days than I’s had mine’s whole life.

          She’s happy Raena. Don’t you ‘member her squealin’ like a banshee the other day? You know, when you slow blinked to her. You’re whole life she’s played the slow blink game and nuffin’. When you furinally slow blinked back mommy was beside herself with happiness. 

 

Raena post surgery sits on small perch in front of door looking backCheck out mine’s eyes. Aren’t they lookin’ pawsum?!!

 

 

 

Really? Mine’s slow blinkin’ makes mommy that happy? I’s didn’t do it befur cuz it hurt too bad. Ya’ know, always scratchin’. Scratch, scratch, scratchin’ mine’s eyes. Now that it doesn’t hurt anymore I’s just wanted mommy to know how much I’s luvs her. I’s never ‘magined she was gonna lose her marbles and get all mushy gushy fur days. 

 

          Purrlease Raena, you know how emotional mommy can be. Kittens, She can cry over a commercial.

Yeah that’s true sissy, I’s just didn’t know how ‘purrtant slow blinkin’ was to mommy. I’s always let her know how much I’s luvs her in other ways without her openin’ up the flood gates, so I’s just didn’t x’pect this. Guess it’s a good thing I’s like hugs and cuddles. How long do ya’ think this might last?

          Who knows Raena. T’ween the guilt she feels fur not figgerin’ out what was wrong with your eyes sooner and the way you’ve been checkin’ everythin’ out like you’re seein’ it fur the very furst time, she could be gushin’ fur years.

 

Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s don’t blame mommy, she tried to help me and the minute she knew what was wrong and how to fix it, she did. I’s have so much to be fanky fankful fur. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure. And meowin’ of Blessings, tomorrow, we’ll be Giving Thanks fur the many Blessings we have.

          We will Raena. Thanksgiving here in the U.S. is a day celebrated cuz of the fortune our ancestors found when they came across this amazing and fertile new world, America. And while we’re certainly grateful fur all of that and the fact that we were born here and are citizens of this great nation, we actually celebrate by Giving Thanks fur those Blessings we receive each day, like our home, our family and furiends, our health and so much more. Me purrsonally is very Fankful, cuz had mommy not saved me that Fanksgivin’ so long ago, me surely would have died.

Chatting Cats: Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Furstly, I’s sure wanna fanky fank everypawdy fur their purrayers. Sis Dezi is feelin’ much better and availin’ herself of the pawtty box again. Mommy seems much happier ‘bout that too. I’s really gonna miss the slip slidey piddle pads all over the place. What fun!!! Mommy will purrobably be a lot happier ‘bout that too. Anyways…

          RaenaBelle!!! We ain’t spendin’ a whole ‘nother posty meowin’ ‘bout me’s piddle issues. But, me really does ‘purreciate the purrayers. Now, we’ve got a review to write today.

 

 Dezi watching Raena while they eat

 

 

 

Sure ‘nuff sissy. As most of ya’ know, we eat freeze dried noms on the regular. As anypawdy who has ever shopped freeze dried raw noms knows, it’s kind’a ‘spensive. ‘Course, mommy says ‘nuffin’ but the bestest fur her girls. We sure are Blest. Anyways, that bein’ said, we’re on a fixed income so mommy’s always lookin’ fur ways to save a few dollars while still purrvidin’ us with the bestest quality on the market. To do that, mommy mixes a couple of brands of freeze dried noms together. Mommy’s also always lookin’ fur new proteins fur us to try. While it might not be ideal fur us kitties to eat somethin’ different at every meal, it’s also not good fur us to eat only one food or protein. Ya’ never know when fur whatever reason (allergies, health problems, etc.), we might need to mix it up. So, we all got x’cited to see Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried cat food up fur review this month from Chewy.

This is a sponsored post. We received a 3.5 oz bag of food in exchange fur our honest opinion. Neither Chewy nor Stella & Chewy’s are responsible for the opinions expressed in this post unless otherwise stated. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

 

          Yep Raena, we sure were. Me used to eat it all the time, till we got a few bags that had way too much bone in them and mommy saw that they were usin’ that bad vitamin K. But wait, savvy customers like mommy and most of ya’ll alerted the peeps at Stella & Chewy’s and they removed the bad stuffs from their noms in Feruary 2017. Now that’s the kind’a respawnse we’d all like to see from pet food manufacturers, ain’t it? 

 

 Dezi and Raena sniff Stella & Chewy's freeze dried turkey food

 

 

 

Yep sissy, it sure is. Anyways, as most of ya’ know, we luvs us some rabbit. Unfurtunately, mommy says rabbit is one of the most ‘spensive proteins on the market; so she has to supplement our rabbit with other proteins. That mostly means chicken, but Stella & Chewy’s make other proteins too: Salmon & Chicken, Duck, Duck, Goose, Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey, Sea-licious Salmon and Cod and of course, Chicken and our fave, Rabbit. They also have lots of flavors fur the woofies. You might ‘member that we luvs us some fureshly baked turkey tom lurkey, so mommy thought she’d get us a bag of that Stella & Chewy’s Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey to try. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout it:

Ingredients

Key Benefits

  • Real raw nutrition in the convenience of freeze-dried. Serve as is or rehydrate by adding warm water.

  • Made in Stella & Chewy’s own USA kitchen with cage-free turkey and 100% organic-certified fruits and vegetables.

  • Never contains grains, gluten, fillers, artificial preservatives, or colorings.

  • Simple, pristine recipe with limited ingredients and rich in protein.

  • Pet parents and vets report raw feeding supports an improved appetite, digestion, immune system, teeth and gum health, skin and coat, and can help relieve allergies.

 

 

          See? They took out the Menadione Sodium Bisulfate Complex (Vit. K). There’s also none of that carrageenan or gums to worry ‘bout. Mommy does wish they would also take out all the “Sulfates” and use only the “Proteinates”. But hey, till she’s ready to make our food herself, nuffin’s gonna be purrfect, right?

True enuff sissy. Let’s get to the taste testin’. That’s mine’s favorote pawrt. We like small bites, so mommy had to break the little nuggets in half and add some water. I’s not a fan of the Tummy Ticklin’ Turkey. I’s would much rather have a freshly cooked turkey tom lurkey. But, I’s do like that the company lissens to it’s customers, so fur that reason me will give it 2 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?

          Eh, like you Raena, me much purrfurs fresh turkey tom lurkey. But me agrees, lissenin’ to your customers is always a good thing. So me will give it 2 paws up as well. Fankfully, they also carry chicken and our favorite rabbit. They also come in a variety of sizes, 3.5 oz, 9 oz, 12 oz and 18 oz bags. Cost ranges from $9.49 to $37.99. And there’s always speedy free shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up; and, flat rate speedy shippin’ on all others.

Chatting Cats: Where’s My Bite

MeOW  Raena, What are you doin’?

 

 Raena eats treats on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

          Uh, Who? Me? Uh, I’s just havin’ a little turkey tom lurkey. You know, mommy had another dentist ‘pointment yesfurday to get somethin’ called a soft liner in her new teethies. Seems she’s had trouble keepin’ ‘em in her mouth, and this soft liner stuff’s s’posed to help with that.

 

Dezi lays atop the liberty cat tree

 

 

Yeah, me knows ‘bout the ‘pointment Raena, but where’d the turkey tom lurkey come from? Me knows you didn’t get it at the dentist office.

          You’re right sissy. But wouldn’t that be fun. Mommy says when she was little, the dentists always gave her a sucker after her ‘pointments. She’d get a long lecture ’bout eatin’ candy and how that was the reason she was losin’ a tooth, and then he’d go and give her a choice of suckers. Seems kind’a crazy, but I’s guess it assures him of future business. MOL  Anyways, right next door to the dentist office is an Arby’s. After talkin’ with a furiend who’s goin’ thru the exact same thing as mommy, and findin’ out he was able to eat a steak sammich and a pizza, mommy decided to give that sammich thing a try. Arby’s has these sammiches called sliders, that only cost a dollar ‘tween the hours of 2 and 5, so mommy said we just had to make a stop. But, we had to wait till we got back home to have any cuz mommy wanted to make sure we both got some.

 

Well then, where’s me’s bite? Did you already eat it up?

 

 Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

          Who? Meeeee? Nah, that wasn’t me sissy. Maybe we have a kitty ghost or somethin’.

 

 Dezi lays in the house on the Liberty cat tree

 

 

Me thinks you did. But, that’s okay, me saw what ya’ll brought home the other day, and me purrfurs that to Arby’s turkey tom lurkey any day. Mommy had bought one of those tv dinners with turkey tom lurkey bites and was able to chew them up. She got purretty x’cited ‘bout that and then saw that turkey breasts were on sale at the grocery store fur $4.99. ‘Course, mommy headed fur the grocery store where she discovered they weren’t actually $4.99, but $4.99 a pound. So, mommy bought another bag of taters instead.

 

 Raena scratches on the butterfly cat scratcher

 

 

          Yep sissy, I’s know mommy has to be getting’ tired of taters, but there’s no way she was payin’ $5.00 a pound fur anythin’. But then, one of our angels sent mommy some green papers and told her to go get one of those breasts. So, we went back to the store and mommy found a different turkey tom lurkey fur less green papers. I’s tried to tell her to get the biggest one they had, but she said the one she picked out would be purrlenty fur the three of us. But, when we got home, mommy put him in the freezer. She said we had to wait till after she got that soft liner fur her teethies, and a weekend, when ‘lectric purrices were cheaper befur she’d be cookin’ him up. 

 

Ya’ know what that means don’t ya’ Raena? We’re havin’ turkey tom lurkey this weekend. Me can’t wait. 

 

          Me either. In the meantime, I’s’ll be happy to finish mommy’s sammich. Seems it’s still too early fur mommy to be bitin’ anythin’. Anyways, what did you do while mommy and me were gone yesfurday? 

 

Me took a nice long peaceful nap. Till the sky started grumblin’ that is. Me’s so tired of all these storms. Me was so glad to see ya’ll come walkin’ thru the door. Me was worried what with ya’ll bein’ out in the storms and all. 

 

          Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw fanky fank you sissy. We worried ‘bout you bein’ home alone too.

 

 Dezi atop the Liberty Cat tree

 

 

Me’s glad to hear you were at least thinkin’ ‘bout me Raena. But, me does enjoy me’s alone time…well, sometimes me does. That sammich does smell good. Let’s go ask mommy fur a few more bites and try to visit some of our furiends befur the storms roll in again. 

 

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