Black Cat Appreciation Day

Hi everyone! Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and I sure do appreciate my black cats as well as all the other ones too.

Before I write about them I must thank my husband. Yesterday, my crappy computer Dell decided it was done working for me. I had it for only 13 months and only used it for about 8 months. I was typing and it shut off and wouldn’t go back on again. My husband was at the grocery store so I called him and asked him if he could pick up something at Walmart for me on his way home. When I told him it was a laptop he didn’t even sound surprised and came home with one. He never reads my blog because he doesn’t do anything on the computer, but I wanted to say how lucky I am.

I am still learning how to use the new computer so I am using photos that were already in my WordPress.

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.

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day and nothing is more fun for my cats than eating 🙂 And just like people, they get bored with the same foods so they were more than happy to review Wellness trufood Tasty Pairings With Pumpkin, Beef & Salmon.

005006It is grain free and made with high quality ingredients.Pumpkin is good for digestion too.  I was shocked when I read that you should feed 4.5 containers daily for 6-8 pound of body weight. Even on sale, I couldn’t afford to feed this alone to my cats- I wouldn’t have enough time in a day to open them all either.

010Phoebe liked it

013Stinky wouldn’t even try it

012Sammy liked it

009Jinx wasn’t thrilled

011Snowball loved it.

KaTwo won’t touch wet food and Joanie always vomits when she has canned food so I tested on 12 cats. 10 out of 12 liked it so I guess you could say it was a hit. If you want to get some, it is on sale at Chewy for $39.99 . Chewy offers free shipping on all orders over $49 and they have excellent customer service.

We were not compensated for this review, but we were given the food in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win all these eyeballs. 037

Selfie Sunday: The Tocktober Edition-Part 2

Happy Selfie Sunday everyone! We have really made a dent in those treats Grammie brought us. She watched us on Friday so we had lots. I love my Grammie so very much.

As most of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month so we are having a pink giveaway. 010There is a catnip mat, socks and some pink toys. Just comment today through Wednesday ( you can comment every day for more chances). And please remember that breast cancer can strike kitties too- especially those that are not spayed or get spayed later in life. I am worried because I was not spayed until I was one.

Now for some tocks: 005Millie 009Jinx 012Spooky 004Sammy eyeballKaTwoKaTwo  ( pardon the eyeball, Mom thinks she is funny)

 

PS: My bikini has been located

PSS: Mom is going to a cat show today and she is going to see some bloggers- she will write about it tomorrow.

Michael’s Monday

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day on the blog. I recently went to Michael’s Craft Store and got my kitties some cool straws in the clearance section for only 50 cents. 004My kitties are loving them and they are fat enough to put treats inside of ( the straws, not the kitties 🙂 ) We sent some to our friends Dezi and Lexi and they are having fun with them too : https://dezizworld.wordpress.com/2015/06/28/blest-sunday-selfies/. Adding catnip to the straws makes them extra fun too.

I find a lot of great toys for my kitties in the clearance section at craft stores. After Halloween, I got this great ball for Jinx:011He loves glittery balls like this and this was a giant one. And I always get great deals on yarn to make toys for them.

Joanie will be showing off her tummy tomorrow and we will have more medical updates.

 

 

Catnip Bubbles

Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so I got out the catnip bubbles. I wish I could make my own, but I want to be sure they are non-toxic so I bought some at Petco. I actually saw a small bottle at Walmart for only  $1. I remember when I first bought catnip bubbles 20 years ago, they were $10.

Most of my cats are either afraid of them or ignore them, but Jinx is our bubble hunter. 001002006

It was hard to blow the bubbles and get photos though.

I can’t believe next Saturday will be our one year Blogoversary- I am planning a big giveaway to thank you all. I only had 2 readers for the first couple weeks, it feels like years ago now.
