Elvis is in the House

Mom Paula thinks this photo of Brulee look like a floofy silver Elvis!  MOL!  Brulee likes to sleep under the ceiling fan in the bedroom and her floof is always flying all over the place.

What Big Eyes You Have!

Mom Paula loves fairy tales and other children's stories and when she saw this picture of Truffle and her big, beautiful eyes, she thought of Little Red Riding Hood talking to the wolf!  We don't think Truffle will jump up and attack Mom Paula like the wolf did, but those are some awfully big eyes!

Complete Health Nutrition for Your Cat #WellnessPetFood

As a pioneer in holistic nutrition, Wellness seeks new ways to help pets thrive, educate people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle for pets, and supports animal wellness programs.  Wellness provides complete nutrition for cats with its Complete Health dry food recipes and Divine Duos wet recipes.  For over a decade, Wellness has provided pet parents with a variety of thoughtful nutritional choices to create a foundation of well-being.  All of the Wellness recipes are free from corn, soy and wheat, as well as artificial colors and flavors.

We received the Complete Health Indoor Health Deboned Chicken & Chicken Meal Recipe dry food to test.

The Complete Health Indoor Health dry food is a well-rounded, solution-focused diet of meats, grains and fruits for indoor cats with specific lifestyles and needs. The Complete Health recipes are carefully formulated with healthy, natural ingredients plus super nutrients to provide whole-body nutritional support.  The Complete Health Indoor Health formula promises
  • Less Shedding- Omega Fatty Acids support healthy skin & coat.
  • Weight Management- Created with special ingredients, like L-Carnitine, to support a less active, indoor lifestyle.
  • WellFlex® System- Helps maintain healthy hips & joints with added Glucosamine & Chondroitin.
  • Naturally Great Taste Guaranteed- With quality protein and no artificial flavors, we guarantee your cat will love the taste.
  • Triple Cranberry Blend- Packed with phytonutrients from three sources of cranberries.
  • Indoor Health Support- With specific amounts of nutrients for cats that lounge more, groom often and live indoors.
  • Supports Skin & Coat Health- With Omega Fatty Acids from ground flaxseed and added Vitamin E.
Not only is this food healthy for us, but it's delicious.  As soon as Mom Paula poured it into the bowl, both of us began pushing each other out of the way to eat it.  We must remind Mom Paula to get two bowls when she feeds us this stuff.
Truffle resorted to biting the bag when Brulee pushed her out of the way.

It's important to keep your kitties well hydrated, especially if  they eat dry food.  We have two water fountains and one water bowl located throughout our house.  Feeding kitties wet cat food is another way to promote hydration for our delicate systems.  This new Wellness Divine Duos wet cat food a breakthrough in the world of natural wet cat food because it combines a layer of savory pate topped with a second layer of tender cuts in gravy in one cup! We received the Chicken Pate & Diced Duck Recipe to sample, but there are six tasty varieties.  
  • Chicken Pate & Diced Duck Recipe
  • Chicken Pate & Diced Turkey Recipe
  • Chicken Pate & Diced Salmon Recipe
  • Beef Pate & Diced Chicken Liver Recipe
  • Tilapia Pate & Diced Ahi Tuna Recipe
  • Tuna Pate & Diced Salmon Recipe

When you open the cup, the pate is on top.  To serve the recipe, you peel the lid, flip the cup on the plate and lift the cup off of the food to reveal the pate base topped with the layer of cuts and gravy.   

Both Truffle and Brulee loved the chicken pate & diced duck recipe.  Truffle licked the bowl clean and went over to Brulee's bowl to finish what she left behind.  Brulee was very fond of the delicious gravy and pate and even ate some of the tasty tender cuts of duck.

Get in My Belleh!

As our furiend, Goma, always says, "Get in my belleh!"  We just love treats!


If you've never met Goma, you simply must visit his blog.  He is a beautiful Himmie and was one of Angel Sweet Praline's boyfriends.  Goma was featured in a segment of Cats 101 on Animal Planet when they focused on the Himalayan breed.  We encourage you to watch this 3 1/2 minute video from Cats 101 of the Himalayan.  Here's a recent picture of Goma and his mom, Sachie,

Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful . . .

Some of your humans may remember the Pantene commercial where the actress, Kelly LeBrock said, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."  Truffle thinks this photo relates to that phrase, but she'd never be a diva like that!  MOL!

Pee ess:  Truffle doesn't think anyone would really hate her, but this photograph just reminded Mom Paula (she's old) of that commercial from the 80s.

Hanging Out in the Human Litter Box Room

Brulee likes to hang out in the guest human litter box room because there is a great AC vent under the sink and it cools the tiled floor and her floof during the hot summer.

Easy Like Sunday

Today we're sharing a little close up of each of us taking it easy in front of the computer monitor. One of these first days, Mom Paula is going to get a clear, sharp picture of Brulee.

Photo Hunt: Selfie

Just when we think we have a good "selfie" of us with Mom Paula, she has the human litter box in the background.  What are we going to do with her?!?

International Box Day

We don't know what it is about boxes, but we LOVE them and the bigger, the better!

Yummy New Stinky Goodness

Our friends at chewy.com sent us some new food to try out:  The Wellness Divine Duos. Chewy.com sent us the chicken pate and diced duck flavor.   
Brulee sniffing the new stinky goodness

The Wellness Divine Duos come in six different flavors to satisfy even the finickiest kitties.  We're already a fan of the Wellness brand of canned food and were very excited about trying this new type of food.  This wet food comes in a plastic container with a easy to remove top (no pulling out the spoon to save fingernails).  When you first open the top, you see the pate layer, which is one flavor.
Brulee and Truffle checking out this interesting flavor.

The cool thing about this new stinky goodness is that your human just flips it over into the food bowl and there is another flavor of chunks in gravy and spills over the pate.  Both of us immediately went to the bowl to eat the food.

Many of you know that Truffle will eat almost anything, so she dove right in and cleaned her plate.  Brulee is our little finicky kitty and she usually will lick all the gravy and leave the chunky.  However, since this food mixed the gravy, chunks, and pate together, even Brulee began eating immediately.

You can tell we both liked the food because she didn't even come up for air for a photo shot!  According to Chewy.com's website, the Wellness Divine Duos combines two tasty flavors and textures in one cup! A layer of savory pate topped with a second layer of tender cuts in gravy, Divine Duos enhances the experience of everyday meals for cats.
Key Benefits
  • Grain-free
  • Quality meats and wholesome vegetables
  • No wheat, corn, soy or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Convenient, clean, easy-open container
  • Made in the USA!

We definitely give the Wellness Divine Duos "four paws up" and look forward to trying other flavor combinations.  This delicious food is currently on sale at $33.99 for a case of 24 containers.  Wellness offers free shipping for a total order of $49+ and a flat rate of $4.95 for total orders less than $49.  Chewy.com's shipping is very quick, too!

We received this food free from chewy.com and our opinions are our own.  We received no compensation for this review.

Happy Father's Day

Even though we have different mommy cats, we share the same daddy cat:  Peerage Jayden of Crystalpurrs (aka Jayden).  We are very luck we know who our daddycat is.  Jayden lives in Mt. Pleasant, SC and he's pampered like the king he is and he's part of the family.  He's such a handsome mancat and we think both of us inherited his great looks.  Happy Father's Day to Jayden.

We also want to wish a Happy Father's Day to our Grandpa Paul.

Flashback Friday at the Movies

This is one of our favorite videos of Truffle.  Truffle had been living with Mom Paula for a couple of weeks when she discovered the water fountain.  This video is a little longer than usual, but you simply must watch to see Truffle's determination to "eat" the water.  We must apologize for the loud laughter from Mom Paula, but it was so nice to hear it after losing Sweet Praline 5 months earlier and little Beignet only a month earlier.  We hope this Flashback Friday video brings a little smile and laughter into your household today.

You Forgot Something

Ummmmmmm, Mom...  You forgot to turn on my lamp so I can get my light bulb tan!

Mom Paula:  Oops!  Sorry, Truffle.  Is this better?
Just make sure you don't forget again!

Getting a Light Bulb Tan

Show Your Colors

Today is Meezers Colors Day in the Cat Blogosphere.  Originally this was a day for the "meezers" to show off all their varied and beautiful color points.  Now, we celebrate this day by all of us kitties simply displaying the beautiful colors they wear.

We aren't Meezers, but we are a unique breed of Persian.  We are Silver Shaded Persians. According to the breed profile from the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA), the description of the shaded Persians is:  "The exquisite silvers are considered the most ethereal of all Persians. The chinchilla is a sparkling white cat with black tipping scattered as evenly as stardust, ever so lightly, on the face, legs, tail and body. Shadeds show a mantle of black on the back, shading evenly down the sides. The tipping on the legs and face should match and is darker than the chinchilla.  Silvers and goldens have green or blue-green eyes rimmed with black, black paw pads and brick red or rose nose leather."
This photo shows our "silver" shading on our backs.

Truffle has more silver shading that Brulee.  She has a lot of silver on her face, which almost makes her look like a meezer.  She has beautiful green eyes, but she has a black, leathery nose, which isn't standard for a silver shaded Persian.  This is what makes Truffle so unique from other "silvers".
Truffle's beautiful silver shading on her back.

Brulee is more the "standard" silver-shaded Persian.  She has a light tipping of silver on her back, has a unique shade of green eyes, and that cute little rose/red nose.  Unfortunately, since Brulee has a little flatter face than Truffle, she has a lot of eye drainage.  Mom Paula tries to keep them clean, but it's difficult. The CFA continues to describe the breed:  "The Silver Persian has long been referred to as the “Rolls Royce” of the cat world. The look is timeless and elegant, and they have always been described as regal and exquisite in appearance. It is a “breed” of classic, incredible beauty, considered by many to be the most beautiful Persian color, if not “the fairest of them all.”   If you'd like to read more about our breed, you can visit the article on the Cat Fanciers Association page.

We hope you've enjoyed our little lesson about silver-shaded Persians today and learned a little bit more about our unique coloring.

Friday at the Movies: Taking Away the Sheets

We just love it when Mom Paula changes the sheets on our her bed.  She tries to fuss at us, but ends up playing with us.

What's even better than playing on clean sheets is exploring the mattress.  Our mattress is one of those pillow topped things with all kinds of nooks and crannies.  Truffle even discovered another place to rest in the quilt on the chest.

Thankful Thursday

We have lots to be thankful for today.  

Truffle wants to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes this week from all of our furiends from the CB and FB.

We're very thankful for the beautiful birthday graphics and our new header from the wonderful Ann of Zoolatry!
Truffle's BD announcement for the CB on June 2.

And our biggest news this week is that Mom Paula doesn't need surgery on her hand!  The human vet said she could come out of that ugly brace (she had 3 since February), she could stop physical therapy (paying someone else and do it at home instead) and that she could start getting back to normal activities.  He said the injury was healing itself.
The wrist is still a little swollen, but looking so much better!

All in all, it's been a pretty good week so far!

Pee ess - we won't talk about the computer monitor dying, the continuous medical bills, and Mom Paula's stress level right now.  MOL!
