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.

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.

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.

Newman’s Own Valentine’s Pet Sampler Giveaway

Love Your Pet This Valentine’s Day – Newman’s Pet Food Sampler Giveaway

newmans-sampler-packAs the calendar days pass, the new years worth of holidays and celebrations have begun. One of the first holidays is the upcoming Valentines Day.

Each year when Valentines Day rolls around, I wonder the same thing each – why is there only one day to tell those we love that we love them. I think we should tell those we love that we love them everyday! This generalization also applies to the animals in our life, we should love them each day and not only on a day in February.

A simple way that we show our cats love each day is by the food selections that we make! With that spirit of love, I am thrilled to give one reader a Newman’s Pet Food Sampler in either cat or dog variety.

Treat Your Pet with Newman’s Own Giveaway

Treat Your Pet with Newman’s Own Organic Pet Food Giveaway

newmans-sampler-packI have a confession, I get Christmas gifts for my pets. I generally wrap them and put them under the tree. When it is time to open the gifts, I let the cats sniff the gift and paw at it. Once it is time to open I pry the corner open and let them attack it. More often than not they are far more interested in the paper and the accompanying crinkle. While this provides my husband and myself a laugh, inevitably the cat walks away to ignore us.

Cats are notoriously ambivalent about everything including gifts, their surroundings and most of all – their humans. There is one time when I am able to get my cats entire attention is when I have dry or wet food. When ever I crack a can open they come running –  that is why I am thrilled to be able to have another Newman’s Own Pet Food giveaway.

Newmans Own Organic Cat Food Review

Newman’s Own Organic: Wet and Dry Cat Food Review and Giveaway

maggee-contiplating-her-newmans-own-choicesSince I have adopted cats I have learned a lot about the feline species. One of the biggest things I have learned is about their taste buds.

Often we make strawberries with fresh whipped cream on the top and every time I make whipped cream my girl Maggee wakes up out of her slumber and stands at full attention. Each time she does this I immediately give her some cream. She is usually done after a couple licks, and back to sleep she goes. Until recently I was under the belief she loved my whipped cream, and as it turns out cats can not taste sugar and sweet, it must have been the plain cream she loves. My other cat, Murfee has no interest in this creamy treat and tuns his nose up on such indulgences.

To say the least we have two different eaters in our house, which makes finding a cat food that both animals like can be a challenge at times. I have taken it on as a challenge of sorts – can I find a list of foods that both cats will love. Recently i reviewed Newman’s Own Organic food and loved it, and when I found out they had a line of pet food under the label Newman’s Own Pet Food knew I had to let the two cats try it.

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – October Review

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – October 2015 Review

Pet Gift Box Cat BoxThe first thing that I think of each Halloween is black cats, but not in the way you may initially think. Black cats are synonymous with witches, bad luck and general creepiness. The reason that I think of them is that many people adopt these black cats as a Halloween novelty and do not consider that they are living creatures.

Many shelters, including my local shelter where I got the Muggles, puts a hold on black cat adoptions through the end of Halloween weekend. I personally agree with this policy and would like to see it “adopted” in all shelters, stores and rescue organizations.

The black cat issue aside I do not think that animals really like to wear costumes, Halloween or any other day despite what their guardians may think. Despite this I put hats, glasses and any other item I can locate onto our cats. In this months Pet Gift Box I am happy to say that I got an addition to my ever-expanding cat costume collection.

Purina One: Smart Blend Cat Food Review!

We are very lucky cat owners in that our cats really adapt very easily to new goods, new toys and new treats much like ducks to water. They are the most adaptable and flexible creatures, because of their humans choice of jobs, they get to constantly sample something new. Maggee and Murfee (herein refered to as “The Muggles”) are healthy, happy and strictly indoor cats. Due to them being indoor cats, we realize what they are missing in their diet and try hard to supplement their lives and food as much as possible.
