Hi everyone! This month we jumped at the chance to try Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Chicken Formula Freeze- Dried Cat Food Topper. I have been wanting to get my cats on a raw diet , but with 13 cats, buying one would be too expensive and I am too lazy to make my own. I thought this would be a good test to see if they like raw. It was actually hard to tell it is raw because they are freeze-dried, dry being the key word there.

*Disclaimer: We received a bag of this food in exchange for a fair review as part of the Chewy Blogger Outreach Program. All opinions are those of the cats that tasted them.

100_9698Polar Bear and his 2 wives loved them.

100_9700 Joanie loved them.

100_9702Phoebe did too. 100_9709Millie liked them too  100_9704I even let Sammy try a few ( he is on a special diet)

100_9705Snowball munched hers up 100_9707and Prancie did too ( Joanie was waiting just in case Prancie left any).

Everyone liked them except for Penny and KaTwo so we have 11 out of 13 that approved. If you want to try them, they are on sale this month for $11.99/ 6 ounce bag. And Chewy

always has free shipping on orders over $49 so stock up. Click Here to go to Chewy

As much as I would like my cats to eat all canned food, they still insist on some dry. When I saw Chewy was offering a grain-free dry cat food this month, I thought it would be a good choice.

#Chewyinfluencer Kong Cat Scratcher

Hi everyone! Today we are finally getting to our ChewyInfluencer post which is over a week late. This month I chose the Kong Cat Scratcher, Incline because I wanted Brody to have something of his own.

He had no interest in it, but Sammy loves it. The minute the Chewy box arrived, Sammy figured it was something for him and Joanie hoped it was a new food to try.


DSCF1019 Phoebe, Sammy and Joanie helped me assemble it. It was mostly assembled, we just had to add the mat to the incline. This one is extra special and has a little ball hanging inside that the cats can see from the sides.

DSCF1024Sammy immediately got to work claiming it as his own.

DSCF1021Look how talented he is, he can use going up or down. After this, I did give it to Brody, but he didn’t want to use it so it is back downstairs where Sammy monopolizes it. Joanie takes a turn once in a while too:


This is a sturdy scratcher and it is on sale for only $5.79. And don’t forget Chewy offers free shipping on orders over $49 so stock up.

Chewy Review

Hi everyone! We are reviewing Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis Chicken Variety Freeze-Dried Cat Treats.

Disclaimer: We received these free from Chewy in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

We are always excited to get a Chewy box: DSCF0610

DSCF0610Phoebe didn’t like them.


DSCF0777Millie and Miss Piggy Joanie loved them.  Sammy liked themDSCF0779 

DSCF0780 Snowball did and so did

Prancie DSCF0778

Everyone liked them except for Phoebe and KaTwo ( she only eats her dry food). Even Spooky was eating them at first, but right now he changes his mind a lot. We will count him as a like though for 12 out of 14 kitties liking them.

Some may find them too big, but they can be crumbled easily and added to the top of canned food or given as a treat. They are on sale at Chewy for $7.19 for a 2.25 oz. bag.

Taste of the Wild Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about the food we won as part of Stunning Keisha’s #10CK Giveaway for her 10th Gotcha Day. We thought we had won a bag of treats so we were very surprised to receive a Chewy box with a 15 pound bag of Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Dry Cat Food. 002 Penny claimed the box, as you can see the bag is bigger than she is.

005 006 007 Everyone loved it- even KaTwo! That was 13 out of 13 cats that liked the taste. Then a few hours later the wild part kicked in. Prancie was walking around meowing and her pupils were dilated, Joanie was practically bouncing off the walls and Phoebe was very aggressive to Joanie  ( much more than when she plays with Prancie).

I decided to look up the ingredients ( I know I should have done that first). The one item that jumped out at me was chicory root. I know it is used as a coffee substitute and is caffeine free, but I am guessing it must be a stimulant. The only other information I could find about chicory root was it has a laxative effect. I am hoping it was what made Phoebe’s heart have the murmur-if it is not heard today then I will believe that was the cause. Has anyone else ever tried this and if so, how did your cat act?

I am not trying to sound ungrateful because this was a great prize, but I just can’t believe all the odd behavior my cats had from it. Chewy is a great company, but I won’t be purchasing this particular product again. And we love CK- thank you for having the giveaway!

Today is also World Spay Day and I am bringing in another feral to get fixed.


This poor guy is very afraid. And he smells a lot, I am sure his odor will go away once he is fixed. I am not looking forward to the car ride though.

Chewy Tuesday

Hi everyone, we get to join a new hop today. The Chewy Hop will take place the third Tuesday of every month. Thanks to Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier for hosting.

This month we received ZiwiPeak Daily- Cat Cuisine Canned Cat Food in Venison . We were given the product for free in exchange for an honest review.

002Joanie called dibs the minute the box arrived. Unfortunately, canned food doesn’t agree with her so she didn’t get any.

009Snowball liked it a lot, she loves pate instead of shreds.

003Sammy liked it a

002Jinx did too.

001And it was a hit with Prancie, she loves venison.

Millie loved it, but he ate it too fast and well, you can guess what happened–in my shoe.

KaTwo won’t touch canned food, Joanie can’t have it and Millie had a problem, but that still gives us 10 cats loving it out of 13.

The ingredients sound healthy:

Venison Meat (includes up to 3% finely ground bone), Venison Liver, Venison Tripe, Venison Lung, Venison Kidney, New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel, Olive Oil, Agar-Agar, Kelp, Taurine Vitamins: Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D2 Supplement, Folic Acid Minerals: Tricalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Choline Chloride, Magnesium Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Magnesium Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate

It is on sale this month at Chewy and all orders over $49 ship free.

Don’t forget to comment to enter Phoebe’s giveaway:

015She will announce the winner Thursday.


A Chewy Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Right before Christmas a box from Chewy arrived and I wasn’t sure what it was. Then I remembered that we won a giveaway from Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows . 027 028 029

We got 3 packages of Purina Pro Plan True Nature Protein Crunch. One of each flavor: Turkey, Shrimp and Lamb.We reviewed the turkey ones in November so I knew they would be a hit. Turns out every flavor was a hit and they are all on sale at Chewy.

We also received Ethical brand wide spring toys and pom pom toys too. It was like Santa arrived early without those pesky reindeer to run over Grammie ( who Phoebe loves very much- actually, all the kitties love their Grammie).

So far no one has guessed what is going in the gumball dispenser and sorry Phoebe, it is not cat treats. Any other guesses?

002Tomorrow we will show you what is inside. I bought it at Hobby Lobby and it had 14 cents inside, I guess people kept putting coins inside for fun.

Chewy Review

Happy Monday everyone! This month we chose Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming Cat Chews from Chewy. My cats are all pretty lazy so they probably didn’t need to be calmed, but I should save some for trips to the vet, especially for Spooky and Millie. Joanie is my one hyper cat, but she didn’t behave any differently despite having 3 treats ( one per day is recommended, but more can be given as needed). I didn’t give her 3 treats, I gave her one and she liked it so much that she swiped 2 more from the others.

004 005


007 008

Stinky did have trouble chewing hers because they are on the big size. She ended up licking it about 20 times then swallowing it whole. Everyone loved them, except for KaTwo. I wish KaTwo would eat them because she could use a calming treat. She is not hyper, but she really has fits and attacks her tail.

Active ingredients per 1 chew: thiamine (vitamin B1) 65 mg, C3 (colostrum calming complex) 9 mg, l-theanine (Suntheanine brand) 8.5 mg, inactive ingredients: brewers yeast, calcium sulfate, canola oil, chicken liver flavor, citric acid, glycerin, maltodextrin, mixed tocopherols, propionic acid, rosemary extract, silicon dioxide, sodium alginate, soy lecithin, vegetable oil

I am not sure if the treats really calm the cats, but they must be tasty. If you want to try them, Chewy has them on sale this month for $4.02 a package ( 30 treats per package). Chewy offers free shipping on orders over $49 so why not get all your pet Christmas shopping done in one place.

*We were given the treats for free from Chewy,  but all opinions are our own.

**I apologize for the messy photos, the package arrived while I was decorating and there was no holding them back.


Chewy Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Today we have a Chewy review, we are not paid for these posts, but we receive the product for free in exchange for a fair review.

024For November, we went for turkey just in case Mom and Dad don’t share the big one with us.

We chose Purina Pro Plan True Nature Protein Crunch with Real Turkey Cat Treats. They have no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives so they are healthier for us than other treats. We all liked them except for KaTwo who won’t eat any treats.  023028Spooky was looking for more. 032And Millie was too.

They are on sale this month for $2.79/2.1 oz. package. Here is the link: Chewy

And don’t forget to stock up on everything your kitty needs- shipping is free when you spend $49 and up.

Chewy # Sponsored

Happy Monday everyone! Phoebe is exhausted from her 2 days in a row of blogging.


Today we have a Chewy # Sponsored review. We were not compensated, but we did receive the product free in exchange for a fair review.

I have been looking for a different litter instead of the clay one we currently use. I would love one that doesn’t need scooping every 5 minutes ( really, in the morning, it can be every 5 minutes). Simple Solution 30 -Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter comes in a 15  pound box that is supposed to last for 30 days. I assume that means for one cat.


Unfortunately, the minute I opened it, I knew I was going to have a problem. It has a strong scent and like many other scented litters, I got an immediate headache and started sweating. I agreed to review it though so I put it in the box in the room with Polar Bear and his 2 wives ( Noel and Tallulah). They still come down to visit, but they seem to like their on space. And being that it is upstairs, I am not exposed to it as often.

litterIt is a pretty shade of pink. I couldn’t help but think the Trout Talkin Tabbies should get some to make their “art” sculptures. It did seem to work well in that the urine went to the bottom instead of clumping.

If you like scented litters then I would recommend this, but if not, then stay away. I always worry that my cats aren’t going to like cleaning their paws with that perfume scent from the litter. Right now it is on sale for $18.60 for 15 pounds with free shipping on orders over $49. Here is the link for Simple Solution on Chewy

Today is Polar Bear’s turn to get his thyroid recheck-update tomorrow.
