Product Review – Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings

Happy Sunday everyone. I think mother nature is very confused. It’s the end of October and it’s 80F! It’s supposed to stay nice for another 2 weeks. We’ve had a whole extra month of open windows this year and it looks like we get to leave them open for another 2 weeks.

20161022_085804Chewy.com sent us another winner to taste test. It’s Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings Savory Mousse with Chicken & Goat Milk Grain-Free Cat Food Cups. It’s made with lots of good stuff, but make sure you read the ingredients. Mom didn’t read them properly, so she didn’t know the Chicken Flavor had tuna in it, and she doesn’t usually feed us fish.

It comes in lots of varieties – Chicken, Chicken & Liver, Tuna, Whitefish, Salmon, and Shrimp. Mom just checked the Chicken & Liver, and it also has tuna in it. So if you’re not feeding your kitties fish, you’ll want to pass on this one.

Anyway, as always, the big test is will we eat it. Here’s the answer to that one!20161022_085745Our plates were spotless when we were done. Maybe mom should rethink the no fish thing.

That’s it for me today. I’m gonna go find a sunpuddle to nap in. Have a great week everyone!

Product Review – Stella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re having pawsome fall weather and lots of open windows to sniff at.

I’ve got another review for you of a product from Chewy.com. I love doing reviews for them – we don’t always like what we test, but it’s always interesting to try something new. This time we got to try Stella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food.

20160919_200910

It contains all kinds of good stuff like duck and turkey. It’s also got some stuff I can’t pronounce, but mom didn’t seem too worried about any of those things.

They recommend that you mix the morsels with water to serve it as dinner. So that’s what we tried first. Here’s how that went:20160919_201215

As you can see, most of it’s still left in the dish. Mom left it down for a while and we eventually ate it all, but Mom’s not sure which of us actually ate it.

So then we tried them dry as a treat. Mom shredded up the morsels so we could eat them in tiny pieces. Our reaction – nommy! We all three just love them as treats.20160919_201400

So we didn’t like Stella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food wet for dinner, but we love it dry for treats! Maybe we should try it wet again now that we’re used to the flavor.

That’s it for today. Have a great week everyone!

Guest Post – Caring for Your Cat

Happy Tuesday! Today I have a guest post for you from Diana Hutchinson, the founder of Tinpaw.com.

Caring for Your Cat

Having a cat as a companion is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences one can have during their lifetime. To make the most of this time, you should make sure you have the ability and knowledge to fully care for your much cherished feline friend. Cats might seem like they’re very independent pets, however they require proper care in order to become good and friendly feline friends in your home.
Although they are more self-sufficient than dogs, they can be very loyal if you just put in enough effort and lots of love. You need to keep the cat healthy, feed the cat well, get the necessary preventative treatments, play with your cat, and such other things. By doing these things, your cat will always feel loved and much appreciated. In this article, we have compiled the top tips about cat care.

Get Special Medical/Preventative Treatment for the Cat in Time

While signs and symptoms of sickness usually vary between different cats, you should immediately contact your vet if you notice any of these signs: cloudiness, discharge, rubbing of eyes, or redness in the eyes; itchiness, or discharge in the ear; breathing difficulties or persistent coughs; bloody urine, spraying urine, or excessive urination; digestion problems, diarrhea or vomiting; seizures, confusion, lethargy, or restlessness; and such other signs.

Feed Your Cat Properly and Regularly

how-to-care-for-our-feline-friends-04You should consider feeding your cat two to three small meals which are saved throughout the day. Also, offer your cat some treats once in a while. Your vet can assess your cat, and determine the ideal diet. In order to feed your cat properly, you should consider purchasing an automatic cat feeder. An automatic cat feeder can be very good idea for busy cat lovers who cannot always be there during the cat’s feeding time. The cat feeder dispenses food gradually according to the timed program and the dictated quantity and the type of food.

Make Sure Your Cat Gets Enough Water

how-to-care-for-our-feline-friends-01The body of the cat is actually made up of about 70 percent water. It is important to always supply your cat with fresh water. Since cats are instinctively attracted to flowing and running water, you should consider installing a cat water fountain. Cat water fountains are constantly filtered and circulated, so water tastes fresher and stays clean. Your cat will naturally be drawn to the flowing and filtered water in the cat water fountain, encouraging her to drink more. This helps ensure your cat drinks enough water and stays well hydrated. Staying well hydrated keeps the cat feeling her very best, and helps prevent kidney, urinary, and other health issues.

Keep Your Cat’s Coat Looking Good

how-to-care-for-our-feline-friends-02Although most cats tend to stay clean and rarely require a bath, you should groom your cat on a regular basis. Regular grooming keeps your cat’s coat looking good, clean, and even reduces the overall amount of shedding. Grooming also helps stimulate the blood flow and offers a great time for bonding with your cat. If the cat has relatively long fur, you can use the pin brush. If she has short fur, you can use a flat brush. You can use a small, triangular shaped type of brush for the smaller areas around the face and ears. In case you prefer using a comb, you can go for the wide toothed combs for long fur, and fine toothed combs for short fur.
