Happy Sunday everyone. We got the hots going here – high 90s for days and days on end. Between the snow and rain all spring, and now the too hots, I haven’t had a stroller outing since last fall. This stinks! I hope next weekend is cooler so I can go out.
I haven’t reviewed a product for chewy.com for a while, and now I have two to tell you about. This weekend I’ll tell you about Sheba Perfect Portions Grain-Free Multipack Poultry Entrees Cat Food Trays. The poultry variety has 12 servings of chicken and 12 of turkey. It comes in a seafood variety, too, with 12 salmon and 12 whitefish & tuna. Mom doesn’t feed us fish (it doesn’t sit well with me) so we never try the seafood flavors.
The portions are just right for a single serving. And at $8.82 for a case of 24, that comes out to 37 cents a serving. That’s about the most affordable grain-free option I’ve found. Perfect Portions has lots of good stuff in it, and mom couldn’t really find anything she objected to in the list.
She’s not thrilled with the way it’s packed. The little plastic trays have a foil top you have to peel off. It’s a little difficult to peel and mom always winds up with the gravy all over her hands. But as always, what’s most important is do we kitties like it.
EK checked it out before mom even got it into our dishes. He wasn’t too impressed.
We girls, on the other hand dug right it! We ate ours and then shared EK’s.
So the search for a grain-free wet food that all three of us will eat still goes on. Mom may have to give up and settle for two out of three of us eating it. And if she does, Perfect Portions is near the top of the list.
I’ll have another review for you next weekend. In the meantime, try to stay cool. Have a great week everyone!
Happy Sunday everyone. We’ve been enjoying open windows and owls that visit our yard every morning. I love spring!
I got to review a brand new book that’s coming out: Nozy Cat 1: A Hope Jones Cozy Mystery by Lyn Key. This is her first book. It’s about Hope Jones who finally realizes her dream of opening her own bookstore. She opens it with her best friend, Peggy Sue Roswell. Hope is also the proud human companion to Nozy Cat, a black cat with a special ability. They wind up getting mixed up in a murder mystery when a dead body is found in their store. I don’t want to spoil the whole plot, so I won’t say more about it except to say that Nozy Cat and his special ability play a big part in solving the murder.
I found the book to be a fun, light read. Some of the characters are well developed enough to make you care about them and that helps the book hold interest. It also took me most of the way through the book to figure out who the murderer was. I read so many cozy mysteries that I usually solve them sooner than that.
The book has some first time author issues. Some of the major characters have no dimension. There are also some editing issues that were annoying for a grammar geek – mostly places with odd sentence structure, missing words, and extra words. I think fleshing out some of the auxiliary characters and a good editor could take this series from being good to being really good. Despite everything I just said, I’m looking forward to the next installment of this series.
Hi everyone! We’ve been experimenting with food again courtesy of Chewy.com. We love being bloggers for Chewy.com because we get to taste test all kinds of stuff, with mixed success. This time was more successful than most.

Sounds good to me and to mom. You know how picky she is about what we eat. The one thing she was worried about is that this food is shreds and chunks, and we usually only eat paté.
Well, we ate it up! Except for the liver chunks, we ate all 9 flavors. Mom was flabbergasted. We’d tried so many foods that were shreds and chunks that we wouldn’t eat that mom was sure we wouldn’t eat this, either. We fooled her! We thought this food was so nommy we cleaned our plates. Well, except for, as I said, the bits of liver. They were mixed in with other things so we ate around them. Unfortunately, this food costs four times what mom’s been paying for the food we eat now, and she can’t afford that. We wish she could cuz we really liked this food.
We’d also gotten some dog treats by mistake, so I gave them to my neighbor. They were the Natural Balance Dental Chews. She emailed me to let me know if the dog liked them. Here’s what she had to say:
“Bella really likes the Natural Balance Dental Chews. She actually led me over to the container they are stored in this morning. She gets lots of chewing time with them, so I believe they will be helpful with her dental hygiene. I will repurchase them when needed. I’m am pleased they are a limited ingredient product.”
That’s it for today. Have a great weekend everyone!
