Ringo and his crinkle tunnel

I bought this tunnel for Ringo on his first birthday, and he just loves it. He was resting in it so cute the other day!

Is it safe to come out?

This is Sadie. I'm under a "new" place, the futon instead of the bed. I like to sleep in this other room sometimes. My mom wanted me to come out, but I wasn't sure if it was safe from that other kitty.

Guess I'll stay under here a while, just to be sure.

Bulletin, bulletin!

I could not find Sadie when it was time to feed her. I was bringing her food downstairs to put back into the fridge, and I saw her in the office, eating Benny's leftovers!
Benny: Hey, you haven't been here in a while.

She has not ventured downstairs to eat in seven months!

First I gave Lucy a piece of raw chicken breast, so she would be distracted, then I gave Sadie her own food in the office.

Progress! She used the litter box after she ate, and quietly slipped away. I couldn't help myself and woke Jim up to tell him (LOL).

Thrifty Thursday: Cat-themed items

One night recently, I went to the thrift store and found four cat-themed items. First is this cat bag/purse. I found no tags or markings, but it's sure cute.

Also, this book and cat bowl. I already have a copy of this book, but I bought it for my niece. It's a heartwarming story (and there are videos on YouTube).

And this garden flag, with a tuxedo kitty on it.

All four were about $10!

Chewy.com review: Ziwi Peak Daily Cat Cuisine #chewyinfluencer

This month's review item is a food we hadn't heard of before, Ziwi Peak Daily Cat Cuisine food in lamb. There are other flavors available too.

There's a lot to like about this food. From Chewy's website description, it says: Never includes grains, rice, corn, soy, potatoes, wheat, fillers, sugars, glycerins, rendered meals, preservatives, TSPP, BPA, guar gum, agar agar or carrageenan.

93% of the food is lamb and mussels. Unlike some of the foods on the market, the ingredient list is relatively short. The most unusual item on the list is chick peas.

Another interesting ingredient is green mussels. I had no idea that they contain chondroitin and glucosamine, which supports joint health.

The cans are an unusual size, 6.5 oz compared to the "standard" tuna sized can of 5 oz.

The website said it's a "chunky" formula, but to me, it seemed like pate.

What would the cats think?

I was able to test the food on all four cats. Both the boys sampled it but were unimpressed.*

 Now the girls LOVED this food.  Sorry about the photo of Lucy. She wanted to eat in a sunbeam.

This is a good quality food. I recommend it.
*Note: Lamb is not a food we feed very much.  In my experience, you need to try a new protein source several times.

Disclaimer: We were given some food in exchange for an honest review. The opinions here are our own.

Random kitty photos: Volume 2

More random photos, some from Jim.

Jim took these of Ringo and Lucy napping together.

Benny and Ringo snuggle on Jim's lap.

Blackie gets some canned food.

Lucy + yarn = bad combination
This is great!
