Furminator #ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy review day and we have a great product to tell you about. When I was offered a choice of FURminator for cats with long hair or short hair, I chose the one for long hair.

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

Several times a month, Emmy will lose her appetite until she hacks up a big furball. I have been using the FURminator on her daily for two weeks and she has not had a furball issue. I am thrilled about this because she was diagnosed with the start of kidney disease in addition to her heart problem so when she doesn’t eat, I assume it is one of those problems and panic.

Hubby helped with the photo shoot because it is tough to hold a cat still and the FURminator and a camera, actually it is impossible.

Every single time Emmy is being brushed. Trouble gets jealous and wants a turn.

This is a cat that likes to be brushed.

After just two passes over her back, we got this. There is a cool FURjector button to push that releases the fur so you don’t have to pull it off by hand like with other grooming tools. It also has a nice ergonomic handle for easy gripping.

The  small FURminator is currently on sale at Chewy for $11.12 . there is also a larger one available as well as one for short- haired cats. If you are interested, click here. And while you are there, be sure to stock up on all your kitty’s needs because shipping is free on orders over $49. Shipments always arrive in 1-2 business days, my orders usually arrive in under 24 hours.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks (even though she is on hiatus), Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? I am skipping the Mewsic hop again this week. My post gets too long when I do the reading and mewsic hops together. Next week, I will do the Mewsic one.

I just finished Trooper: The Bobcat Who Came in from the Wild by Forrest Bryant Johnson. In 1987, the author found a baby bobcat trapped in a cactus plant. He rescued him and kept him for many years, until Trooper died of old age. I found this book fascinating, I enjoyed reading of the special bond these two shared. Trooper is such a sweet cat that he even befriends a stray cat and brings him home to share dinner. He ends up joining the family too and spends all his time with Trooper.

Trooper lived in Nevada where people can own bobcats, well, back then they could, the laws could be different now. They had a large kitty door put in so he was able to come and go as he pleased. I think you will all love this book as much as I did.

Our spark today is from Trouble, take time to stop and smell the flowers, just don’t eat them because they could be poisonous.

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

This week’s theme for Mewsic Moves Me is songs about Remembering or Forgetting. They don’t have to have Forget or Remember in the title, just in the lyrics.

  1. Strawberry Wine ( Deanna Carter)- 1995- One line , ” I still remember when thirty was old” –


2. Never Say Goodbye ( Bon Jovi-1986)-

3. Memory ( from the musical, CATS)-

   I don’t know why Mom thinks I licked her Klondike bar. My spark for today is “Life is Short. Eat Dessert First.” by Jacques Torres.



Hi everyone! We have a great food to tell you about today.

*Disclaimer:We received I and Love and You Variety Pack Wholly Cow!, Savory Salmon & Purrky Turkey Pate Canned Cat Food, 3-oz, case of 12 for free from Chewy in exchange for a fair review.

  I am always looking for a new canned food for Miss Pick, I mean Emmy. I was thrilled when one of the choices from Chewy this month was I and Love and You Variety Pack Wholly Cow!, Savory Salmon & Purrky Turkey Pate Canned Cat Food. As you can see, Emmy loves it. Well, she loves the Wholly Cow.She did not like the other flavors, but luckily, I have lots of other mouths to feed.

Trouble was eager to join in for her first Chewy review. She loves the turkey, I think she will like them all.

Sammy is on a special diet and Katwo won’t eat canned food . That left 11 testers, Emmy loves her one flavor and everyone else enjoyed it except Brody. He prefers dry food too, but once in a while he likes canned food. I would say it was a hit though.

A variety 12 pack is $15.49 , and don’t forget to stock up while there so you can take advantage of their free and fast shipping on orders over $49. Click here.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Everyone told me that Grammie is wonderful and gives out lots of treats. Well, she did give out treats, but she is a squealer.. She told my Mom that I had a mouthful of Brody’s fur. Then she said Sammy was better behaved than I was and that I eat faster than he does.

This is what I think of Grammie.

In my defense, Mom saw me chase Sammy when he chased Brody.


Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful for my Gremmie, we is best friends.

And Mom is happy that Trouble is no trouble at all, she is a little piggy though.

 She claims she didn’t touch the powdered donut.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had to write a poem based on this photo.

Barney they are not,
I bet they weigh a lot!
No trip to Jurassic Park for me,
I would rather be a meal for a flea.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. We would be so happy if you would participate , this week is #104- that is 2 whole years of fill-ins!

2. When I go online, I use my _________________.

3. Mother’s Day __________________.
