Review – Greenies Smartbites for Cats

Hi pals. Happy Sunday! It’s been raining almost every day since the middle of April. Can you believe it? It never rains like that here! I’m not talking about afternoon 15 minute rains like we’re supposed to get – I’m talking about raining really hard for hours and hours. Hail, lightening, thunder, you name it. It’s not supposed to rain like that here.

It’s so nice to have mom and Oliver home again. Two weeks is too long for them to be gone all at once. Mom’s almost done sorting pictures and making her picture books. I’ll blog about them and post links to the photobooks when they’re done.

I got another yummy from chewy.com to taste test – Greenies Smartbites Hairball Control for Cats. We got two flavors – tuna and chicken. They’re made with real protein and help with hairballs. Here’s what the website has to say about them:

Key Benefits

  • Dual-textured treats with a delicious chicken flavor
  • Real chicken protein promotes healthy metabolism
  • Balanced fibers to help minimize hairballs
  • Features a Fiberblend Formula of plant-based fibers
  • Made will only natural, healthy ingredients
  • Made in the USA”

Mom liked the looks of that. Me, I just know they’re Greenies and Greenies are good (and good for me). One big issue though – we normally won’t eat treats more than once or twice before we turn up our noses at them. Well, we ate the Greenies the first time mom put them out and we’re still eating them. Look!

20150510_141928They really do help with the hairballs, too. Only problem is, the hairballs aren’t coming out the way mom would have preferred – in the litter box. Instead, they came up on the carpet.

Uh Oh. I made a mess on the carpet.
Uh Oh. I made a mess. This is what was left after the kitty sitter cleaned up the worst of it.

Mom came home from her trip and saw that and just about had a cow! She had to get out the foamy monster to see if the monster would eat up the stain. It did!

Nice and clean.
Nice and clean.

So, Greenies Smartbites Hairball Control taste good, are good for you, and clean up fairly easily. That sounds like paws up to me!

That’s it for today. I hope the rain moves to somewhere where it’s needed (like California) and leaves us alone for a while. Have a great week everyone!

We got the Greenies for free from chewy.com. Our opinions, as always, are our own.

Hill’s Science Diet Giveaway Results

It’s time to announce the winners of the 15 bags of Hill’s® Science Diet® Hairball Control cat food. There were only 16 entries, so everybody wins! Concatulations everyone! 15 of you will get your bags direct from Hill’s and someone local to me will get their food from me because I have some extra here at the house. Unfortunately, as wonderful as this food is, one of us in the household has an extremely sensitive tummy and didn’t react well to it (glares at offending sisfur). EK and I think this is wonderful food. If it were up to us, Mom would switch us to this. Unfortunately, the kitty with the sensitive tummy outvotes the rest of us. 🙁

Please email where you want your food shipped to pumpkinpuddy@gmail.com. I’ll forward all the addresses on to the wonderful people at Hill’s. Thanks everyone for participating in my giveaway. I know you’re gonna like this food. I sure did.

That’s it for this Sunday. Lippe had a big weekend and we gotta get all the pictures on the computer and get them labeled so we can post them, so I gotta say bye for now.  *runs off to get camera*

Some fun from Hill’s and a giveaway!

I’m so excited I just can’t believe it. I got this message from the folks at Hill’s:
“We can give 15, 7lb bags of food to your readers. Here’s the info we’d like to share with them as well. Thanks!”
That’s right my furriends. 15 winners! Can you believe it! I can’t believe they picked my little blog for this. I’m very honored.
Hill’s is doing this for a furry impawtant reason. We kitties are prone to hairballs, and we all know how dangerous they can be. A stuck hairball can make a kitty very very sick. I’ll let the Hill’s folks tell you the rest. 

“Hairballs are serious, but Hill’s has found a fun way to build awareness of the problem of hairballs…Join Hill’s in the battle against hairballs!

Just as Hill’s created the innovation of hairball control cat food (http://www.hillspet.com/cat-care/hairballs-trouble-with-fur-adt.html ), the company is now leading the field with a branded consumer game on Facebook….Hairball Battle. Strategically, this game is an exciting and innovative opportunity to interact with consumers in a new way to build upon hairball awareness.

Playing the game is simple. Choose one of our hilarious hairballs and cough them up on your friends! But watch out, they’ll be able to retaliate! Silly, sloppy and a bit disgusting—it’s the most fun friends of felines can have without leaving Facebook!

Please support our game by clicking the Battle link below. Then fight to the yucky finish as we generate awareness of our hairball control products in a unique way. Watch your step!

P.S. Dog lovers, don’t be shy—you can play, too!”
Here’s how to enter for giveaway – leave a comment telling me you’d like to enter. I know from last time that lots of pals will leave comments that don’t want to be in the giveaway, so it’s real impawtant you say you want to enter in your comment. I’ll take comments for one week and announce the winner on June 5th. One entry per household. Sorry to my international furriends, but recipients must live in the U.S.A.
