Tell All Tuesday: Simply Shreds #ChewyInfluencer

Raena:  Hey, Is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Mommy!!! I’s can’t hear mine’s self over the noisy lawn crew machines!!! I’s hate yellin’!!! (Raena jumps off the back of the chair onto the scratcher beside mommy’s chair and looks around) Hey sissy, where’d you come from? Can you not hear the lawn crew? I’s thought you would’a been unner the bed?.

          Dezi:  Me’s headin’ there Raena, me just wanted to grab a bite of brekky furst. See ya’. 

 

Raena: Wait sissy!!! (Raena runs after Dezi who heads down the hall and UTB) C’mon, sissy, wait fur me. I’s wanna tell ya’ somethin’. 

 

          Dezi:  Go away Raena, this is me’s spot.

Raena:  But sissy, I’s wanna learn how to hunt fur intruders too. 

 

          Dezi:  Go hunt somewhere else Raena, this is me’s spot. 

 

Raena:  (Dezi and Raena hear mommy calling them to come to breakfast. The lawn crew’s still making a lot of noise outside but the girls are hungry and start to slink towards the living room)  Sissy, do we have to crouch down so low? I’s have longer legs than you do and this isn’t all that comfurtable. 

 

          Dezi:  Nopawdy said you had to follow me Raena. Don’t you have somethin’ else you could be doin’?

Raena:  Well yeah, sissy. We need to tell everypawdy ‘bout the noms we tried this month. You know, the ones we got from Chewy

 

Dezi sniffs wellness core box

 

 

 

          Dezi:  Me ‘members Raena. Mommy thought we’d really like the Wellness Core Simply Shreds Grain Free food topper. It comes in 4 different flavors, Boneless Chicken, Salmon and Tuna, Tuna and Shrimp, and Chicken and Mackerel. A case of 12) 1.75 oz pouches costs $15.84. We got the Boneless Chicken to try since we’re not really fish eaters. Me really wishes these food companies would offur more of a variety in their non fish proteins. Anyways, let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout ‘em: 

 

 

Key Benefits

  • Provides a boost of pure protein and hydration with just three ingredients—lean chicken, chicken broth, and water.
  • Lean protein helps maintain healthy muscle mass while chicken broth helps keep your kitty hydrated and supports urinary health.
  • Unadulterated, low calorie protein source with no fillers, grains, or starches, so it helps support a diet similar to that of your kitty’s primal ancestors.
  • Convenient tear-away pouch makes it easy to top dry food or wet food, or give as a side dish or high-protein snack.
  • Contains no grain, meat by-products, wheat, corn, soy, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

Wellness Core Simply Shreds

 

 

 

Raena:  As you can see, these Simply Shreds are pure protein. Us kitties thrive on meat proteins, so these would make a great addition to our diet, you know, as a snack or special treat. These are not considered a balanced meal. Besides, there’s no way 1.75 ounces would get us full. MOL  Anyways, mommy says you should open the pouches over the sink, cuz they’re full of water/broth and can be a little messy.

          Dezi:  Me thinks the juice is the bestest pawrt, Raena. The chicken shreds are a bit stringy and dry. So, me would give these 2 paws up.

The juice is good, huh sissy?

 

 

 

Raena:  I’s agree sissy. 2 paws up fur me too. Mommy gave ‘em a thumb up cuz they purrvide us with much needed hydration. Ifin you think you’d like to try these or any of the other flavors out, you can shop fur them right now at Chewy. As always, all orders $49.00 and up ship speedy and free and all other orders have a flat rate shipping of $4.95. Chewy has great customer service peeps who are available 24/7.

Dezi eat Core shreds

 

          As you can see, chicken is not only the furst ingredient, it’s purretty much the only ingredient. Now, ya’ need to ‘member the Core Simply Shreds are NOT a balanced meal. They are great fur addin’ to your pets normal meal as a topper or even a special treat. Ya’ know, maybe ya’ wanna give kitty a midnight snack, but ya’ want somethin’ a little healthier than a handful of treats. These toppers would be a great option. They come in a case of 12) 1.75 ounce packets, 4 flavors and cost $13.99 a case. They also have these fur the doggies. I’s should also tell ya’ the packets are full of water. That’s good fur helpin’ to keep kitty hydrated, but mommy says ya’ better be careful and open ‘em over the sink. She didn’t do that the furst time and had to mop befur we could eat. Never a good idea to tempt kitty and make us wait while you clean house. 

 

 Dezi looks over at Raena from her plate of Core shreds

 

 

That’s fur sure Raena. We could smell that chicken just callin’ our names; and waitin’ fur mommy to finish moppin’ was just torture. Me couldn’t wait to check it out when mommy furinally served us. Me licked up all that tasty chicken water.

 

 Dezi eats Core Shreds while Raena looks on

 

 

          You sure did sissy. I’s waited ever so patiently fur mine’s turn to test it out. By the time you furinally let me try it, all that was left was shreds of chicken. You didn’t leave me, not one frop of that chicken flavored water. Fanky fankfully, mommy saw that and added some fur me. It was all purretty tasty ifin ya’ ask me. I’s would fur sure give the Wellness Core Simply Shreds 3 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy? 

 

 Dezi eats Core shreds while Raena looks on

I’s think it’s mine’s turn now sissy. Don’t you?

Me thought the water was quite tasty. And, me did come back later and eat a few shreds. They weren’t too bad, so me would give ‘em 3 paws up as well. Me meowed with mommy a bit and she says, she’d give ‘em a thumb up cuz we both ate them and they’re a one ingredient treat. But only 1 thumb, cuz of the mess while opening them, and she said those little shreds are kind’a hard fur us kitties to actually eat. Seems we made a bit of a mess outside the plate. So, mommy not only had to mop, but she also had to run the sweeper over the area around our plates. And, mommy thinks they’re a little on the costly side fur what ya’ get. All in all, 6 paws and a thumb is purretty good.

          Sure ‘nuff sissy. And of course, there’s also the box. You know we luvs us a Chewy box. And, we luvs Chewy. They offur great purroducts at great purrices with furee speedy shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up, every day. They have a pawsum auto ship program that insures you never run out of your pets favorite noms, litter or whatever. But don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay anytime. And you can also add things to or take things out of your auto deliveries. You’ll get an email in purrlenty of time to make any changes ya’ need befur the ship date. Trust us, this is somethin’ mommy luvs. And of course, we can’t say enuff good things ‘bout Chewy’s customer service peeps. They still believe, the customer’s always right. That’s a hard quality to find these days. 

 

Raena gets love while wearing her red dress

I’s luvs mine’s dress mommy. And, I’s luvs you too.

Those are all great points Raena. Now, give us one more pose in your purretty dress and let’s go play. Don’t furget to check out the other Chewy reviews here.

Shreds Or Chunks What’s Your Pleasure #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy and happy Caturday. Me knows you expected a Straight From Your Kitchen recipe today since me didn’t post one this week, but me has a Chewy review me needs to tell ya’ ‘bout instead. Recently one of me’s furiends made mention of all da reviews/ads goin’ on in da bloggin’ community; so me thought we would explain a bit ‘bout why we do it. Furstly, as you know we don’t have much money and so getting noms, treats, toys or other products really helps us out each month. It also allows us to try some things dat we might not otherwise get to try. And we get to tell you all ‘bout it. More than once mommy has seen somethin’ dat by it’s description sounded like it would be purrfect fur us only to find once she’s bought it, da description wasn’t truthful. Fur instance, pate type foods don’t go over very well in our house, and more often than not descriptions aren’t clear ‘bout what’s actually inside da can. Therefur it’s really helpful when we can actually see da noms in a plate so we can determine ourselves ifin it’s worth spendin’ money on or ifin we would eat it. And sometimes we get to offer give aways so dat at least one of our readers will get da chance to try it too. So we see it as a win win. Now let’s get on with da review.

 Dezi with case of Wellness Core Cat food

This month we got to try Wellness Core Hearty Cuts in gravy chicken and turkey canned cat food. See da name of these noms? Hearty cuts in gravy? Well we think you would expect what we did, little chunks of chicken and turkey in a nice gravy. Well let me tell ya’ dat’s not what it is at all. There was some fine print dat mommy couldn’t read dat woulda caused her not to order these in da furst place, cuz they aren’t chunks, they’re shreds. And they’re not even shreds like pulled meat. They be little tube shreds, dat look like meat and other ingredients have been puréed together and then passed through a pasta maker or large hole grater. Da gravy is really thick and a little oily so mommy added a little water to thin it out and make it more appealing fur me.

 Wellness Core Cat Food

Befur we get to da taste test, let’s take a look at da ingredients and claims.

Here’s what’s in it:     Chicken, chicken broth, turkey broth, chicken liver, turkey, dried egg whites, potato starch, carrots, guar gum, natural flavor, cranberries, spinach, sodium phosphate, salt, ground flaxseed, potassium chloride, salmon oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), canola oil, choline chloride, inulin, dried kelp, yucca schidigera extract, taurine, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin e supplement, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, niacin supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, sodium selenite, biotin, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin a supplement, vitamin b12 supplement, folic acid, potassium iodide, vitamin d3 supplement, rosemary extract 

 Wellness Core Cat Food

As you can see, there’s no carageenan. There is some salmon oil but we’re purretty sure dat’s fur da Omega’s. Here’s da Key Benefits listed on da Chewy website:

Key Benefits

  • Chicken and turkey recipe in a hearty gravy
  • Grain-free recipe helps pets avoid common allergens
  • Superfoods like carrots and spinach provide essential nutrients
  • Serve as a balanced meal or mix with dry food
  • No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors
  • No wheat, corn or soy fillers

 

Alright, let’s get to tastin’. Mommy, bring me a plate of dat Wellness Core Hearty Cuts in gravy and let me try ‘em out. (Dezi looks intently at the plate containing the shredded bits of chicken and turkey and then puts her nose down to smell it) Hmmmmmm smells okay, let me lick a little of dat gravy. Okay, me’s backin’ up now. Mommy, you can share this with Buddy cuz me doesn’t wanna eat it. Yep, dat’s right, me doesn’t like this at all. Mommy even tried cuttin’ da little shreds up and me still wouldn’t eat it. Buddy on da other hand couldn’t eat it up fast enuff. So Buddy gives it 4 paws up. Me hates da addition of da “Super Foods” since they’re not super foods fur us kitties at all, but everypawdy’s doin’ it. So all in all, this is a good quality food. Fur dat reason me gives it a paw up. Mommy said fur da same reasons she would give it a thumb up as well.

 Dezi licking Wellness Core Cat Food

Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a good quality, meat furst, grain free canned food, and kitty likes shreds, this is a good choice. You can get your own case of 24) 5.5 ounce cans right now at Chewy.com fur $39.99. Wellness makes quite a few different flavors and textures, so you’re sure to find somethin’ to your liking.
