Product Review – Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis

Disclaimer: We got these treats free from to taste test. All opinions are our own. No one can make us eat something we don’t want to eat!

Happy Sunday everyone. We’ve been having fake summer here, but I’ve been enjoying it. I had a stroller ride last Saturday and again yesterday. Today – winter is back and it’s snowing. sent us a new treat to try. It was Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis. We got the duck formula cuz EK is partial to duck. Sorry George.

Mom looked at the picture and thought it was just freeze dried duck. Well, it isn’t. There’s all kinds of other stuff in there: Duck (Including Ground Duck Bone), Turkey, Turkey Liver, Turkey Heart, Pumpkinseeds, Apples, Carrots, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseed, Montmorillonite Clay, Broccoli, Lettuce, Spinach, Dried Kelp, Apple Cider Vinegar, Parsley, Honey, Salmon Oil, Mixed Tocopherols, Olive Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blueberries, Alfalfa Sprouts, Persimmons, Inulin, Rosemary, Sage, Clove. Mom’s not sure about some of the ingredients. She doesn’t think we need all that stuff, especially the clay, and the spices. She’s also trying to keep us pretty much fish free and these have salmon oil. But she’s feeding them to us anyway.

Here’s what we think of them:

20150214_160541-001Notice who’s missing from the picture? Once again, it’s EK. Mom could have gotten our favorite flavor, chicken. But no, she got duck to see if EK would eat them. We should just give up on treats for EK. He doesn’t like any of them.

So that’s our review of Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis. We girls love ‘em. EK won’t eat them. Mom’s not sure about some of the ingredients. So even though we girls like them, Mom doesn’t think she’ll be buying them.

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

Easy on Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re having summer in February and I got a stroller ride yesterday! I got to walk around too. I also rolled in the grass and dirt and Mom had to clean me up a bit before bringing me back in the house. I also got a nice brushing last night.

I usually don’t do memes, but I happen to have a purrfect picture for Easy on Sunday.

20150130_231723How’s this for getting my easy on? The basket came from Mom’s work. She put our extra blankies in it and was gonna put some toys in it too and take it to a shelter, but I decided that basket full of blankies was an excellent sleepy place. I guess the basket is staying instead of going to the shelter. I should feel bad about that, but I’m so comfy in this basket I just really want to keep it. *embarrassed ears*

It’s another beautiful sunny day today and we have the windows open for fresh airs. I love open window days.

That’s it for today. I’m going to get back in my basket and take it easy. MOL Have a great week everyone!

A Surprise and a Product Review

Happy Sunday everyone! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in two whole months. We’ve been having a lazy winter. But we got a surprise in the mail yesterday, and that reminded me I owed a review to someplace. So first, the review.

20141218_182028As you know, I test products regularly for This latest product they sent us to test was Wellness Divine Duos with Chicken Pate & Diced Duck Wet Cat Food. Here’s what the website says about it:


Key Benefits

  • Grain-free recipe
  • Quality meats and wholesome vegetables
  • No wheat, corn, soy or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Convenient, clean, easy-open container”

That sounded good to mom, so she said I could test it. Here’s what we have to say about it:20141218_182435

We chowed right down on it, chunks and all. Eventually, EK came over and tasted it too, but he didn’t like it as much as Candy and I did. Since only 2 of us will eat it, that makes it a no in our house. But Candy and I still gave it paws up!

Now for the surprise. Look at the pawsome present we got from! It’s not signed, so I don’t know who painted it, but it’s a pretty pawsome picture. Mom couldn’t believe her eyes when we opened the package. And mom’s birthday was last week, so how’s this for a birthday surprise?20150125_113500It’s a little grey, but for some reason, I look kind of grey in pictures, so that’s how I would have looked to the artist. What’s funny is one of the cats that came before me looked very much like that, so now mom has a gorgeous reminder of not just me, but also one of the kitties that came before me. Mom and I are just tickled pink about our surprise.

So that’s it for this Sunday. It’s a beautiful, sunny day so I’m gonna go lie in a sunpuddle. Have a great week everyone!
