Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats

Hi everyone! Look at all this cool stuff we got in the mail. It is like Christmas in July!

*We were sent samples of Hartz Delectables Squeeze Up Cat Treats and Hartz cat toys in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

We love these squeeze ups!

 

You can lick them right out of the package or you can squeeze them into a dish. Phoebe was too dignified to lick out of the package( Joanie wasn’t) , but she loved them in her bowl. She tried the chicken so far, but we have tuna too which I am sure will be a hit.

We are going to share our bounty by having a giveaway. One lucky winner will get some of these toys and a 4 pack of the tuna and a 4 pack of the chicken treats. Just comment on this post by Thursday 9PM (EST). We will announce the winner on Friday.

Treat Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about two kinds of treats we recently won.

First off, we won Blue Buffalo Kitty Cravings Chicken Crunchy Cat Treats from Three Chatty Cats. Being that KaTwo will only eat this kind of treat, I let her keep the entire bag ( don’t tell Phoebe).

We also won some Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming Treats from Sweet Purrfections.

  They are supposed to help calm an anxious pet during thunderstorms, fireworks or any other stressful event. Joanie didn’t need calming, but she wanted to try one. I also let Sammy, Millie and Penny try them too. They must taste great because they gobbled them up. They did seem calm, but there was nothing stressful happening at the time. I put the rest away to try during the next thunderstorm. It only takes one treat to help, but up to 3 can be given.

Thank you Three Chatty Cats and Sweet Purrfections! Also thanks to Chewy who sponsored both giveaways.

We also want to thank the blog, KittyClism that gave us a Blogger Recognition Award.

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

I started blogging because I love cats and wanted to share what I have learned about them over the years in the hope of helping other cats. It has now become a big part of my life and I am blessed with the friendship and support of a wonderful group of cat lovers.

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers- comment on other blogs and join Facebook groups for cat lovers( or whatever your blog is about) where you can share your posts.

I can’t pick just 15- if you are reading this then your blog deserves this award too.

We will be having a giveaway tomorrow so please stop by.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday, I am thankful for all of you.

We are joining Book Date’s It’ Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awwww… Mondays blog hops.

Joanie enjoyed her week off and is ready to review Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog!

How am I supposed to eat frog when this book don’t tell me how to catch it or cook it? I don’t recommend it.

Sorry Joanie, I thought it was pretty good. It tells how to stop procrastinating and start making goals. It is common sense, but so few actually do it, myself included.

I always use my Barnes and Noble Mastercard at the vet so I ended up earning a Barnes and Noble gift card. I got myself a birthday gift with it- Rescued Volume 2. I loved the first one and so far , I am loving this one too. I have only had time to read the first few stories, but they were all heartwarming. One is by Allie of A Tonk’s Tail, she had a very sad start in life, but I am glad she ended up with a loving forever home.

2, My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is medicating cats. I feel bad making Millie swallow his thyroid pills and Phoebe squints when I put the thyroid meds on her ear. Polar Bear is the only easy one. I put his thyroid pill in cheese and he eats it right up.

3. I could really do without this humidity we have been having this summer.

4. I would love to have more willpower, I have none especially when it comes to junk food.

Before I go, I want to tell you about two things.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I got to see my Grammie on Wednesday, I love her so very much.

I am thankful that when Mom brought me to the vet Tuesday, they didn’t steal my blood. I just got a B-12 injection and an anti-nausea one. Mom talked to the vet about those and being that they are safe, I can get them every 14 days. The vet checked me and I wasn’t dehydrated so I didn’t need fluids like the last time.

I am thankful for The Crotchety Cougar Club, a place where all my older  lady friends and I can complain. Please read about it on Kali’s blog. And please pray for Kali because she hasn’t been feeling well. I am thankful that we gained two more members this week ( they are not listed yet on Kali’s post, but will be added soon).

I am also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter F.

Family
Some say family has to be blood
I tell them to jump in the mud
My folks and I don’t share DNA
but for my health they always pray
Brody may drive me nuts
but I love that little putz
Family are those that love you
no matter what you do

Brody and Prancie are pretty chummy

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for week 63. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________.

2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is ________________________

3. I could really do without                           .

4. I would love to have more                                    .

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy Day and we are reviewing a book. Yes, Chewy even carries books.

*Disclaimer: We received a free copy of Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy in exchange for a fair review and spreading the word about Chewy.

That not Daddy. Chewy sent us the wrong book, someone else must have gotten the one with our Dad on it. Silly Joanie, haven’t you heard of Jackson Galaxy? He is called Cat Daddy because he knows a lot about cat behaviors and helps solve lots of behavioral problems. Mom highly recommends it and it is on sale for only $8.68. And don’t forget, Chewy always has free shipping on orders over $49.If you are interested in this book click here.

This is his first book and is part memoir and part guide for pet parents. Mom read it before from the library, but she was thrilled to get her own copy. I am a little miffed she didn’t get us something to test out this month- phooey!

At least she left us the box. I am going to make a lemonade stand with it.

We don’t have any lemonade though.

So what, people will give us money because we are cats with a lemonade stand.

We are joining the Chewy Blogger Hop hosted by Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays blog hops today.

Joanie feels she has been working too hard so she isn’t doing a review this week, but she did agree to pose with one of the books. But Did You Die? : Setting the Parenting Bar Low.

Eli of Coach Daddy has a story in this collection of funny parenting advice from several parent bloggers. I am not a parent to human children, but I still found it enjoyable and even hilarious. Eli’s story brought back memories of when my niece played soccer. I agree, nothing quite smells like sweaty soccer gear in your car after practice or a game.

Another story that cracked me up was about one woman and how she doesn’t like to read directions and usually skips part of them leading to some funny things. I highly recommend this collection. Here is the Barnes and Noble link ( I am not affiliated with them, but I like the store). This is the fifth book in the collection, I somehow missed the first four.

The Inner Life of Cats: The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions by Thomas McNamee was surprisingly good. I feared it would be filled with the history of cats and facts, but it was so much more. There were some disturbing parts that brought tears to my eyes like the statistics for feral cats. It is in there though to help spread the word of TNR and getting people to fix their pet cats.

Throughout the book, he tells of his own cats. My only problem was that he lets them go outside unattended which I would never do.  Other than that, I agreed with his ideas and enjoyed the book. Here is the Barnes and Noble link
