A Thanksgiving Day Dinner #ChewyInfluencer

Truffle loves turkey and knows the sound of the opening of the plastic bag that contains the turkey. Last week was Thanksgiving and everyone, especially in the South, knows that turkey is the main course at the dinner table.  Mom Paula avoided giving us any of the human turkey.  Instead, we got to eat our own Thanksgiving day feast that is delicious and nutritious.

We've shared our views of Merrick® Petcare cat food before and were exciting to receive the Purrfect Bistro Thanksgiving Day Dinner® from Chewy.com to review for the month of November. This recipe begins with deboned turkey and includes sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, and cranberries.  In the past, we've tended to eat around the vegetable in cat food, but Truffle cleaned her plate when she ate this food.  Not only is it delicious, but it's grain-free and has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  The first four ingredients listed are deboned turkey, turkey broth, deboned duck,. and chicken liver.  The best thing about the Merrick Purrfect Bistro Thanksgiving Day Dinner is that we can eat it year-round.  As you can see from the video below, Truffle really enjoyed her Thanksgiving Day Dinner.  Brulee licked most of the gravy and ate some of the turkey, which is a beginning for her.  Truffle finished off Brulee's plate.

The Merrick Purrfect Bistro Grain-Free Thanksgiving Day Dinner is available at Chewy.com in two different sizes:  3-oz case of 24 ($25.88) and a 5.5-oz. case of 24.($33.08).   The 3-oz case is purrfect for us because we don't eat a lot of food and there is plenty.  As you can see from Truffle's bowl, half of the 3-oz can fills our plate.  For households with more than two cats or who need more to eat, you may want to purchase the 5.5-oz case.

We highly recommend purchasing products from Chewy.com.  They offer free 2-day shipping with orders totaling $49+ and their customer service is excellent.  Visit their website to see all of the products available for cats and check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Sunday Selfie

A few days ago, we showed you Brulee inside of her Walking Palm Cat Cave.  She also likes to sleep on top of it, like a bed.  Mom Paula can't figure us out.  She's purchased numerous cat beds for us and we tend to ignore them.  We get a cat cave and we like to lay on top of it like a bed.  Either way, we think Brulee is adorable in her Cat Cave.

Caturday Art

We had fun messing around with PhotoCat and PicMonkey to design our Caturday Art Creation today.  This photo was late one evening when Mom Paula decided to do a Facebook Live video of the two of us.  The lighting was off because it was 1:00 am in the morning, but with a little adjustments with effects and borders, we like the result.

All in One Grooming Kit for Cats - Catit Giveaway

We've shared many posts with our readers about the need to be groomed on a regular basis and Mom Paula's constant search for the right tools to keep our long and thick fur healthy and beautiful.  We can't begin to describe the number of grooming tools we have in our house and they are all over the place.  Wouldn't it be great to have everything you need in one place for keeping your cats beautiful?

Truffle and Brulee are curious about the Catit® cannister

We've shared Catit® products with you in the past and the Catit Grooming Kits are one of the newest products to help keep cat's fur healthy and mat-free.  Mom Paula saw the Catit Grooming Kit when she was at BlogPaws last year and fell in love with it.  When Catit contacted us about reviewing this product, we jumped at the chance.  Regular grooming not only keeps our fur beautiful but it helps to reduce the amount of shedding inside the house and can strengthen the bond between the humans and cats.  Time spent grooming increases quality time between both which is so important.
Photo courtesy Catit®

The Catit Grooming kits come in both a long hair and a short hair version with tools specifically designed for your cat's coat.  The grooming kits contain every tool you'll need to take care of both the coat and nails.  The grooming tools are stored upright in a handy canister, which prevents the combs' teeth from getting damaged (or lost).  The canister's lid is designed as a temporary storage container for loose cat hair as you groom.

We received the Catit® Long Hair Grooming Kit to review.  The cannister is a stylish white design that will blend in with any decor in your home.  The grooming tools  have comfortable ergonomic handles to assist your human with grooming sessions.  Mom Paula likes these handles because  her small hands tend to get tired and cramped with our long grooming sessions.  Take a look at each of the unique grooming tools in the grooming kit.
Grooming tools in the Catit® Long Hair Grooming Kit

Metal Slicker Brush

The metal slicker brush is designed to remove loose hair and dandruff and can untangle simple knots while gently stimulating the skin.  Mom Paula likes to use the metal slicker brush on our head, neck, and bellies because our fur is shorter and thicker in those locations.  The long pins of this metal slicker brush gets down to the lower layers of our coat to help ensure a thorough brushing.  The metal slicker brush should be used daily on your cat's fur.  Mom Paula hasn't used the slicker brush as frequently as she should, so this is a New Year's Resolution for us.  

Long Dematter

We definitely get mats and Mom Paula is determined not to shave us to get rid of them.  She's tried various tools to assist in removing the mats, but never a dematter.  The long dematter can help remove mats cats can't remove on their own.  There are blades on the dematter that cut away mats and knots with ease.  It is important to remember to use the long dematter with care because of the sharp blades.  The dematter tool has long blades that can easily cut through mats and knows and collect loose hair from your cat's coat.  The dematter tool can also be used to brush through patches of fur where it's very dense (formed on the rear, chest, or under the armpits).  Removing a mat should be a slow process to avoid pulling too hard or cutting the skin.  Mom Paula is still getting familiar with the dematter tool but it was very effective removing a small mat from Truffle's neck area. Brulee is more of a squirmer during grooming sessions, so Mom Paula hasn't attempted the long dematter on her yet. We'll keep you informed of our progress.

Pin Brush

We've used a pin brush since we were kittens.  The pin brush is ideal for removing tangles and debris, while the soft tips provide comfort for cats during grooming.  The small long pins get down to the skin and brush through the fur.  The tips of the pins are blunt to prevent hurting our skin.  Mom Paula tried using other brushes on us, but they hurt our skin, so she went to a pin brush with the blunt tips. We've always been comfortable with the pin brush and usually allow Mom Paula to groom us from our head to the tip of our tails with it.  The pin brush opens up our coat to allow air between the hairs which gives longhaired cats a lively and puffy coat after the grooming session.  Use the pin brush daily and brush in the direction of the hair growth.

Grooming Comb with Rolling Pins

We've talked about combs that have rolling pins in the past, so you know we were happy there was a grooming comb with rolling pins in the Catit Long Hair Grooming Kit.  The rolling pins help detangle our fur without pulling on our tender skin.  This comb helps keep our skin clean by removing any dandruff and other small dirt particles in addition to removing loose hair before it can mat.  The longer pins of this comb work on the undercoat while the shorter pins comb the top coat. The combination of the two sizes of pins allow for a better grip and more thorough brushing.  The rolling pins prevent the comb from getting stuck in tangles. This comb is also great for those hard-to-get areas around our backside and under the armpits.  This comb should be used daily to help maintain our beautiful coats.

Curved Nail Clipper

In addition to the wonderful combs and brushes, there is a quality nail clipper in the grooming kit. It's important to keep your cat's nails clipped to avoid potential damage to furniture and scratches on human skin.  Mom Paula has clipped our nails since we were kittens.  Truffle is pretty calm with the nail clipping, but Brulee used to squirm like a worm. She's gotten better, but Mom Paula wants clippers that are effective, sharp, and quick.  You should use clippers specifically designed for a cat's claws.  Clippers designed for humans are too big for cat claws and can split the nail if used.  These clippers are small and easily fit in your human's hand.  If you're not sure how to clip your cat's nails, you should ask your veterinarian to show you how to do it without clipping into the quick (pinkish part of nail). Our nails are usually clipped once a month.

Catit® has designed a short hair grooming kit with tools specifically created for short haired cats. The Short Hair Grooming Kit includes a nylon slicker brush, a metal slicker brush, a fine grooming comb, a rubber palm brush, and a curved nail clipper.  You can read more about these tools and how to use them on the website.

Time for Secret Paws

Brulee supervising the wrapping of Secret Paws

The Secret Paws exchange matchups are completed.  We had 38 different households of kitties participating.  Mom used a program on the computer called a "list randomizer" to sort the list by assigning a number to each blog and then checked to make sure no one was sending to themselves or outside of the country (if not desired).  Please check the Secret Paws Blog for any additional information/announcements.  We’ve posted some recommendations for you at http://secretpaws2016.blogspot.com/2016/11/recommendations-for-sending-packages.html.  

Once you receive your package from your Secret Paws, please post pictures/comments on your blog and/or on the Secret Paws 2016 (http://secretpaws2016.blogspot.com/) blog.   Everyone should have received an invitation to become a guest contributor on the Secret Paws 2016 site.  If you need us to resend the invitation, please let us know.

This is our 5th year hosting Secret Paws and the 7th year Mom Paula has hosted it.  We hope everyone has a great time.

Company is Coming

We can't believe Thanksgiving is this week and the Christmas Holidays aren't far behind.  The holidays tend to bring company and we want to make sure our house is as odor-free as possible.
Was that the doorbell?

We recently shared information with you about the ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL cat litter. Mom Paula says there's too much else to do around the house during the holidays than worry about litter box odor.  We like the idea of her spending more time with us.  We even like it when company comes to visit.

This next year, BlogPaws will be coming to South Carolina!  We were thrilled when they announced the location would be Myrtle Beach because it's about 3 hours from us.  We hope that a lot of our friend may be able to drop by and see us on their way this year. Felissa Elfenbein, Director of Influencer Marketing at BlogPaws, was able to drop by for a visit last week after the BlogPaws team visited the conference hotel in Myrtle Beach.  We had a great time with Felissa because she gave us lots of treats and Truffle even let her hold her for a photo.

A Holiday Welcome from an Odor Free Home #CLUMPandSEAL

Mom Paula always wondered why her parents didn't like cats when she was younger.  She didn't have her first cat until she was in her twenties.  She asked her parents why they didn't like cats and was surprised with the response from them.  Mom Paula and her sister were staying with an older lady when they were toddlers and the lady had cats.  When Mom Paula's parents would pick her up at the end of the day, they said all they could smell were the odors of the litter box on her clothing and that's why she never had cats as a child.  The last thing we want people to remember when they come to visit us during the holidays is the smell of our litter box.
Truffle and Brulee with #CLUMPandSEAL
Truffle and Brulee want you to remember them and not the smell of the litter box when you visit.

Mom Paula is determined to keep our home as odor-free as possible.  We live in a smaller home and we try to follow the rule of thumb for litter boxes by having one box per cat, plus one.  There are only so many places to put the litter boxes and unfortunately one place is in the front of the house near the kitchen/great room, so it's extremely important to have a cat litter that controls odors.  Cat litter has come a long way since the 1960s and there are a lot of litters to choose from.  One effective litter in controlling odors from the litter box is ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™.
Brulee and #CLUMPandSEAL

As the holiday season approaches, there are more guests in our home than usual and many of them are not owned by cats. We want people to remember their visits with us as a fun time playing and enjoying our beauty and not the lingering odors of the litter box.  Choosing an effective cat litter that controls odors and that we will use is of primary importance.  ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ cat litter is the biggest advancement in cat litter history and is available at your local PetSmart®.  This litter contains moisture-activated Micro-Granules that form a tight seal around the cat waste and destroys it with unique odor eliminators and baking soda.  Your humans can feel comfortable with the CLUMP & SEAL litter because of the 7-day odor-free guarantee.  This litter is 100% dust free which helps our floors stay cleaner and our air a little easier to breathe.

We're looking forward to the holidays because it means Mom Paula will be home with us more than usual.  Having a litter that controls odors will allow her to spend more time with us because she doesn't have to worry about litter box odors.  We're lucky we have three PetSmart stores within 15 miles of our house so we can send Mom Paula there to purchase the ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL litter and she will be back in plenty of time to devote more time to us. To find the PetSmart store nearest you, visit the Pet Store Locator on the website.

Walking Palm Cat Caves

Does your cat like to burrow under the covers or inside a pile of freshly dried clothes?  Does your cat like a warm cozy bed to sleep in?  If so, we think we have the purrfect item for them, the Walking Palm Cat Cave.
Truffle inside Cat Cave while Brulee waits for her to leave

We've never been kitties who like cat beds designed for us.  We've always preferred Mom Paula's bed, the cool tile bathroom floor, or our cat trees.  When Mom Paula visited Global Pet Expo last year, she met some really nice people from Walking Palm who make Cat Caves made out of merino wool that are individually made by hand.  We like feeling that we have a one-of-a-kind item designed for our comfort and enjoyment.
Brulee models the outside of the pink/gray Cat Cave

The Cat Caves from Walking Palm provide a comfortable sleeping pod and playing burrow for cats up to 16 pounds.  When the representatives from Walking Palm suggested we'd like the Cat Cave, Mom Paula was hesitant, knowing our history with other cat beds.  Walking Palm agreed to send us one to review.  We had a lot happening this summer with both of us getting sick, our 5th blogoversary giveaways, and Mom Paula's dad being ill, so we didn't have the opportunity to check out the Cat Cave until this week.  To be totally honest, Mom Paula didn't expect us to use it, so she kept the tag on the cave so she could donate it to another kitty who would use it.  We surprised her!
Brulee inside the Walking Palm Cat Cave

Mom Paula put the Cat Cave on the floor in the hallway and went back to her office to get the camera.  She was hoping we'd at least get near the cave so she could get some photos. She was very surprised when she walked back in the hallway and Truffle was nestled inside the cat cave.  Brulee was outside of the cat cave waiting for Truffle to get out so she could get inside.  Mom Paula moved the Cat Cave to the living room where we like to hang out. Mom Paula was searching for Truffle last night and found her inside the Cat Cave snoozing. When Mom Paula came home from work, the cave was flattened, so we also like to rest on top of it.
Truffle inside Cat Cave while Brulee waits outside

The Cat Cave is available in 15 solid and multi-colors.  They measure 15-17 inches wide and 8-9 inches tall.  The opening is 7-8 inches and can be enlarged, if needed.  Walking Palms also offers special edition caves that feature custom designs such as flowers, tie-dye, vines, and UFOs.  All Cat Caves can be personalized for an additional cost.  The Cat Caves run from $49.99-79.99, depending on your choice of color, design, and personalization.  The Cat Caves ship from Nashville, Tennessee.  The basic Cat Caves ship the next day after an order is placed and the special edition caves ship within four weeks because they are handmade to order.  The Cat Caves are easy to clean in lukewarm water.  They are soft and flexible and offer natural properties to keep cats cleaner and smelling better.

We really like our Cat Cave from Walking Palm and encourage you to try them with your cats.  You can get more information by visiting Walking Palm on their website, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Keeping Our Tushies Clean with earthbath® Tushy Wipes

Our beautiful silver shaded fur is a challenge to keep groomed and clean.  Mom Paula works hard to maintain our fur, but there are unexpected challenges where she needs some additional help. Sometimes, we have those embarrassing moments when we leave from our trips to the litterbox?  You know what we mean, don't you?  We know all of you have had those moments, but imagine what it's like when you have a lot of fur on your tushy like we do.
Truffle and the container of earthbath® Tushy Wipes

Mom Paula has tried everything from baby wipes to the occasional "butt bath" but nothing has really worked without a lot of HBO words and scratches.  We were concerned about chemicals in various human-type wipes and both of us hate baths.  What is a fastidious southern ladycat to do?  The answer for us may be the earthbath® Tushy Wipes.  Earthbath offers a variety of grooming wipes for cats and has recently added the Tushy Wipes.
Truffle admires the container of Tushy Wipes

Earthbath has developed a wipe that is specifically designed to take care of the problem of dirty tushies by gently cleaning and neutralizing the odors in this delicate area.  The towelettes are infused with organically certified saccharomyces ferment filtrate, which safely and effectively neutralizes odors using fermentation technology. It contains enzymes that provide for the bioconversion of a wide range of smelly substances. The wipes also contain baking soda to further enhance the odor neutralizing power and soothing aloe vera, vitamin E and chamomile. And as with all earthbath products they are blended without parabens, sulfates or artificial colors.  

Paul Armstrong, founder and President of earthbath®, said "We like to think of ourselves as a producer of needs-based products.  So after talking with a number of professional groomers about the problem of cleaning tushes, we then went to work to develop a product that would address these needs in a way that was both effective and totally safe for even the most sensitive behinds."  This new towelette is thicker, stronger, and has a slight texture (think Cottonelle) that is designed to be effective at removing cling-ons and messes in the fur.  
A clean tushy thanks to earthbath® Tushy Wipes

One of us presented the perfect opportunity for Mom Paula to try out the earthbath® Tushy Wipes. We still didn't like her messing with our private areas, but the wipes were gentle and effective.  We have a lot of fur on our back ends and even though we are pretty good at keeping clean, sometimes we just can't get to everything.  The Tushy Wipes helped Mom Paula assist us in keeping our tushes clean and smelling nice.  The Tushy Wipes aren't available on the earthbath website at the present time, but they expect the availability soon. 


One of our lucky readers can have the opportunity to receive a container of earthbath® Tushy Wipes by entering our giveaway.  The giveaway is open to residents of the United States, except where prohibited by law. Giveaway will run from November 11-19, 2016 at 11:59pm ET. A single winner will be randomly selected by Rafflecopter (powered by Random.org) and notified via email.

Low Phosphorous Cat Food So Good, Your Human May Eat It

Everyone who visits our blog knows that  Brulee is finicky eater, which challenges Mom Paula to find food that Brulee will eat on a regular basis.  Brulee has the flatter Persian face and she doesn't bite into her food to eat like most cats.  She eats the stereotypical Persian way of picking up the food with the back of her tongue to get it in her mouth.  Because of this, Brulee likes food that is shredded in gravy and it has to taste good.

Weruva is one of the cat foods that Brulee has eaten since Mom Paula gave us our first can over four years ago.  In fact, Weruva cat food is so delicious that Mom Paula ate some at BlogPaws this past summer and there's a video to prove it.  Mom Paula likes to remind us that food must be complete and balanced in addition to the taste. We've tried some food that is supposed to be good for us in the past and Brulee would take one sniff and walk away. She hasn't walked away from any of the flavors of Weruva yet.

Weruva is a family-owned company and the cat food is made in a human-food facility with rigorous British Retail Consortium (BRC) food standards.  The food is deboned and hand packed and safe for humans to eat.  Weruva canned cat food is low in ash content (ground-up bone) and subsequently - phosphorous and magnesium.  Weruva's food is not designed for any specific purpose, except to be a complete and balanced food for adult maintenance. But they've become the "go to" brand to assist cats suffering from kidney and UTI ailments because of the low ash content combined with high quality protein and high moisture.  It's important to note that the food isn't designed to prevent, cure, or treat any particular ailment and your humans should always consult with their veterinarian.

Last year, we reviewed the different varieties of Weruva canned food and introduced TruLuxe, which is the newest line of cat food from Weruva.  One of the TruLuxe flavors, Steak Frites, is made of grass fed beef mixed with pumpkin and sweet potatoes.  The Weruva Steak Frites are featured as the lowest in phosphorus on Dr. Lisa A. Pierson's list of lowest phosphorous cat foods.  You may also find that Weruva's cat food tends to be lower in mineral content than many prescription diets.  We think this is a great time to add Steak Frites to your diet to join your humans eating pumpkin during the fall season.  As  you can tell from the photos above, both Brulee and Truffle enjoyed the taste of Steak Frites.

To find a store near you that carries Weruva cat food, you can visit the store locator on the website. Weruva products are alway available through many online pet food retailers.  We're definitely keeping Weruva on our list of food that is healthy for us and delicious.  There are still a lot of flavors of Weruva we haven't tried yet, so we think we'll visit our local pet supply store and try out the different varieties to find our favorites.


The kind people at Weruva are allowing us to host a giveaway to allow two of our readers to receive a case of the Weruva TruLuxe Steak Frites canned cat food.  The giveaway is open to residents of the United States, except where prohibited by law. If you live in another country, you could enter and donate to another kitty friend or a rescue/shelter located in the United States. Giveaway will run from November 8-16 at 11:59pm ET. In order to enter the giveaway, you must leave a comment below.  Once a comment is left, other options for entries are possible.  Two winners will be randomly selected by Rafflecopter (powered by Random.org) and notified via email. Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize; failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the prize and a new winner will be randomly chosen. Please check your email and be sure to add sweetpurrfections@sc.rr.com to your address book!
