Hartz: Delectables SqueezeUp Cat Treats Review

Spending Quality Time With Maggee and Delectables SqueezeUp Cat Treats + A Giveaway

Since the day that we adopted Maggee she has been giving us pieces of her personality. Prior to us adopting her she was shuttled from home to home and having kittens in between. When we adopted her we knew her history, and so we set out to not only be her last home but also her best home. We began to work with her on being held, and while frustrating at times, that seemed to be the key to her opening up.

It started with us holding her in the middle of the floor, where she had no out to jump down. Within less than a month, she was loving being held and began to seek it out. Flash forward 5 years later, being held is a vital part of her day, and she actively seeks out that love.

Now there are numerous things she has began to love, and spending time bonding with her humans is high on her list, as is food. If I can combine the two, she is in cat heaven. When we recently received the Hartz: Delectables SqueezeUp Cat Treats I knew that I could use it as a bonding opportunity with a treat.

Buffalo Range: All Natural Buffalo Treats Review

Buffalo Range: All Natural Buffalo Rawhide Treats Review & Giveaway

As a pet guardian I am a firm believer that as “guardians” it is our job to make our pets have the best life possible. This could be from giving them attention when they want it, giving them the best food available or making sure the treats they have are pure.

As much as we love our pets, we are unable to communicate with them. Due to this we are responsible for making their food decisions for them. When I look for treats, my goal is to give them the most pure products with ingredients I can pronounce.

When I learned about the new Buffalo Range All Natural Buffalo Rawhide Treats I knew that I wanted Meadow to have the opportunity to try them since I had read that they were natural and did not contain preservatives or fillers.

Newmans Own Pet Food – Cat Giveaway

Treat Your Pet While The Kids Are Away With a Cat Sampler Giveaway

As many cat owners know, cats can be finicky and picky about the things they eat, despite what their humans want.

In our home we have one finicky cat, and one cat that will eat anything that we put in front of her. Since she is easy to feed, the true challenge sits with Murfee and his eating habits. The one food that both cats agree on is Newman’s Pet Food, for that reason I am thrilled to give one reader a sampler pack in either cat or dog variety.

PupBox: 9 Month Old Box Review

PupBox: 9 Month Old Box Review + Box Giveaway

When I was young we adopted a dog and while I tired puppy raising I was young and did not know what I was doing. I had little guidance, and due to my age, I was practically being raised with my puppy.

As pet guardians, we want to do the best for our pets and give them the best life we can. The downside is that we do not speak puppy and knowing what they need or want at each stage of their lives can be difficult.

As regular readers know, we are Shark Tank fans, and last year I saw a company featured that focuses on that special time in your puppies life. The PupBox Subscription Box is a monthly box tailored to the age and developmental stage your puppy is at.

Chewy Influencer: July 2017 – Fresh Step Litter

Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter Review

I am so excited to announce that we are Chewy.com Influencers! What this means is that each month Chewy.com sends us an email with a selection of items that are for dogs, cats and small animals (birds and hamsters) for review. The items range from food, snacks, and supplies needed for pet guardianship. Each month I will bring you a different product that Maggee and Murfee will personally try out.

I was super excited to not only be accepted but then to have the chance to pick an item out for Maggee and Murfee this month. As I scrolled down the email, one item caught my eye – Fresh Step Cat Litter.

Cat Litter is a product that we always need and is always used. Since my cats are highly adaptable I had no hesitation with this litter change, since the brands we normally used would be different than this new one. I chose the Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter and eagerly waited for the ubiquitous Chewy.com blue logo box.

Pura Naturals Pet: Kitten Shampoo Review

Pura Naturals Pet: Calming Lavender and Tearless and Calming Shampoo Review + Giveaway

If there is one truth in my world, it is that I tend to be over protective of my cats. As far as I am concerned my pets are family and as such I am very protective of any product that goes on their bodies, or in their bodies.

I feel as though it is my job as their guardian is to provide the best possible life for them, while giving them everything that they need.

Given the fact that I have such a concern about what my cats are exposed to I am always looking for natural and organic products. When I heard that Pura Naturals Pet was expanding their product line to include 2 new products for cats I was curious.

An Introduction to I and Love and You

An Introduction to I and Love and You + A Giveaway

When I was young I thought that I would grow up and be a veterinarian. The biggest problem with this lofty plan was I could not stand to see an animal in any distress. Once the animal showed signs of pain, panic or discontent, I would react with tears and sympathy in abundance.

As a pet owner now I look for I look for companies that support the causes I believe in such as shelter adoption. The best is companies that also support animal welfare organizations and advocate for healthy and nutritious food options and in my searching I came upon I and Love and You.

Kitty Roo Sweatshirt Review

KittyRoo Sweatshirt Review + Giveaway

There are many things that pull at my attention throughout the day, the largest being the cats. When I say “the cats” really i mean Maggee. There is nothing that Maggee loves more than attention, and she will take it anytime and anyway she can.

One of her favorite things is to sit on our laps, with paw on the chest and head in prime position to bump into the chins of the humans.

I love this time with her and encourage it more than I probably should. A couple of months ago I started seeing a sweater for cat lovers called the KittyRoo Sweatshirt, Many friends had shared this with me, and after a couple of months, thought it time I get one for review.
