Oliver goes to Seattle

OMC! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since February. *glares at mom* I think I need a new typist. Mom’s too lazy to help me blog regularly.

As you know, I got a new baboon buddy named Oliver. He got to travel with mom to her business meeting in Seattle. They went a few days early to have some fun first. Mom made a book of the places they went and the things they saw. They also got to have lunch with the humans of @TinyPearlCat, @SeattleP, and @DeadTurkeyTweet.

Here’s the book from the trip:

Oliver isn’t the only one who got to travel. I went to Colorado Springs with mom. We had two whole days that were just the two of us! I got lots of cuddle and play time and no interruptions from Candy or EK. Woo hoo!

We were supposed to go to Garden of the Gods so I could walk around and climb the rocks, but the weather didn’t cooperate. So instead we went to the Broadmoor Hotel. This hotel is over 100 years old and is very fancy. We walked around the grounds for a while and went to the on-site pet store. We didn’t find anything to buy. We also went to check out a boutique pet store in Old Colorado City. We didn’t find anything there either, but it was fun to get out and see new places. Here’s some of the pics we took:

That’s not the end of the excitement around here. Mom has a big trip coming up. She’s going to Alaska! The stuffies are arguing over who gets to go with mom. I don’t know who’s going to win the argument. I only know that I don’t get to go. We do get a cool cat sitter. She’s the daughter of one of mom’s friends and she’s been around for as long as I’ve been around. She’s really nice and she’s a cat person too! She’s even gonna stay here so it will be just like mom being home. Well, almost. She’s not mom, but we do like her.

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

Product Review – Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis

Disclaimer: We got these treats free from chewy.com 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.

20150214_160500-001Chewy.com 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!
