random Fridays

Mom took the handle off this basket and put a blanket in it and put in under an end table. It has become a very popular spot - especially since mom moved the table next to the sliding door, so we can snooze here and look out the window. We don't think Tim and Daiquiri are both going to fit in there together much longer though.

Fanta....smug little monkey

Rootbeer - we hope his family shows up quick

~~~~~~~~~~~
GREAT NEWS.....Faygo was adopted on Sunday after about an hour at the adoption center. He lives with a nice young couple. He will be an only cat (a couple of people tried to convince them to take Rootbeer too but they are sure they want only one). Concats sweet boy!  Mom got to meet his new dad on Sunday and gave him her card, so maybe we will get an update.

Thankful Thursday

Today mom says she is kind of thankful that Strawberry is going to be spayed tomorrow and then will go up to the adoption center. MOL  Strawberry is getting a little....feisty. haha She is already on petfinder and Colony's website (in case you or someone you know is looking for a nice medium hair gray lady cat).

Honestly, she is probably going to be thankful to get away from Fanta....

Oh - and on that note, it is still gonna be a couple of weeks that Fanta is here. Oh joy....cause that boy is BORED by himself and apparently Daiquiri isn't supplying enough entertainment for him.

wouldn't we all like to be #PawNatural

we were approached to try out a new food from Only Natural Pet ®

Well, far be it from us to turn that down. Turns out that a holistic vet has formulated a new natural cat food (available April 1) called Feline PowerFood™ that is pretty much allergy free - no gluten, no grains, no wheat or corn. And made in the USA. Only Natural Pet is an online store specializing in high end foods and supplies. But this new brand is formulated specifically for them.

This is what Only Natural Pet has to say about their new food:
"Packed with protein, amino acids and essential fatty acids, the PowerFood™ is formulated using the whole prey model of our cats ancestors. Feline PowerFood™ comes in two formulas, Fish and Fowl Dinner and Poultry Dinner (an indoor cat formula), rich with the nutritional benefits of fresh meat, wholesome fats and balanced calories. Kittens and adult cats will benefit from the grain free, highly digestible diets designed for a cat’s optimal health."

We got a sample bag of Fish and Fowl dinner dry food, cans of chicken, turkey and seafood (separate cans MOL), and a bag of vitamin treats. Plus there was a book for mom and a tote bag too.

 Daiquiri of course had to check out the box when mom opened it. Quality control and all that.

 Mom tried the vitamin treats out. While we tell people there isn't much we won't eat, these weren't a big hit. As you can see below, Mo ate them as did a couple of the rest of us, but for the most part we weren't too interested. Mom isn't sure if it was the texture or the size....they were a little big.

 Mom took the canned food in and let Strawberry and the kittens taste test it for us. They loved it. All three flavors were a hit. It is all pate style. Mom said it all smelled like it was labeled....so we guess that is a good sign. Our taste testers give it 4 paws up.

 Mom wasn't sure what we would do about the dry food. We have been eating the same brand for many years. There was some preliminary sniffing and then everyone dug right it. The pieces are a nice smaller size. It doesn't go on sale until April but mom is interested to see the price listed. She has been thinking about switching us to something else but price is an issue around here. But for taste and ingredient list, this was a hit.

We want to thank Only Natural Pets for giving us a chance to taste test their products. They also sell other items for cats and dogs on their website - which is easy to navigate and mom spent some time wandering around. They have a wide assortment of items from food to litter to treats to toys and trees. Free shipping over $79 and flat rate shipping on everything else. Plus you can set up a repeat order so that you don't have to worry about your humans forgetting to shop.


You can find them online here: website, facebook, twitter, you tube

weekend report

Mom took the boys to an adoption event on Saturday. Fanta can't be adopted yet, but she figured it would be a good opportunity to get him seen.

It is tough being out in public and adored for being cute. 

There was a couple that came in and saw Faygo and filled out an application. But after mom checked with their landlord and called the couple back, they changed their mind. Sunday mom took Rootbeer and Faygo up to the adoption center. As mom was leaving a nice 20-something guy was filling out an application on Faygo. YAY!!!

The head of the rescue said to get Strawberry spayed, so mom is going to call and get her appointment set up for this week.

Mom spent the rest of the weekend yelling at the TV. The Spartans moved on, so more yelling next weekend. MOL
