And that last photo, the one of Disco and Teri, well it's entered in the Cat's Pride Couple of the Week Contest! We'd love it if you'd go vote for them! You can vote once a day until June 10th and we could wind some green papers or at least a years worth of cat litter (and it's even the brand we use!)

ManCat Monday

We can always depend on the Campbell family to send us sweet photos of Percy and Brinkley from time-to-time. They are part of our extended family and two very handsome ManCats!

For most of their lives, they lived in North Carolina in a lovely home with the most perfect Catio ever! But then they had to relocate for a while in Beverly Hills.

Now that sounds faboo, but they didn't have the room to have kitty races nor did they have a Catio! But they made do, and didn't love their humans any less cuz of the downgrade!

But, now they are back in NC and Oh-So-Happy to get back to their familiar place, with lots of room to race and lots of time out in the Catio again!

Tasty Thursday, More Mews About Balanced Blends™ Raw Diet!


When we aren't napping... we are eating, hahameow! And we wanted to give you a repurrt on how we are lovin' the Taste 'n Review job we have taken on for Balanced Blends™Raw Diet for Cats! 


We promised we would do a weekly Tasty Tuesday post about our culinary adventures...but if you look, you will see we missed last Tuesday and this past Tuesday, so even though Tasty Thursday doesn't roll off the tongue so nicely...here's our tardy update!

Boxes are always fun, but it's even better when a box arrives for us that has tasty noms in it! The Balanced Blends™arrived in a styrofoam box with a month's worth of frozen goodness inside! 

Balanced Blends Raw Diet for Cats

We had two delights to choose from -- Chicken and Beef! And after 3 weeks, we can say we eagerly scarf down either of those delicious varieties with equal gusto!

Balanced Blends Raw Diet for Cats

We had already been eating some raw diet along with our Weruva Paw Lickin' Chicken, so we really didn't have any problems transitioning to 100% Balanced Blends Raw Diet, and had no tummy upsets or refusing to eat issues, either! In fact, Disco has put on 4 ounces in the past month, so he is getting his portions cut back a bit!

Balanced Blends Raw Diet for Cats

One of the things that Teri liked about Balanced Blends™website that it has good information on how to transition your cats onto a raw diet.

Balanced Blends Raw Diet for Cats

Right now, we are eating 100% Balanced Blends™ Raw Diet for Cats and as we kinda share  3 bowls, we aren't sure who is eating the most, but Teri puts approximately 1/4 of an 8 ounce package in each dish. That is about 75 calories and we get fed twice a day, and our caloric requirements are around 175 a day, so we get an extra snack before bedtime (or in bed, as Kely is doing in this video!)

Balanced Blends™ has started a risk-free, money-back guarantee for their raw food! They wanted to make it risk-free for pet parents who are considering trying their raw diets and it's a great opportunity for any of our readers who are "not sure" about trying their raw diets. If for any reason, you are not satisfied with their food, they will give you a full refund!

Balanced Blends™ was founded on the principles of providing appropriate diets for cats and dogs, just as would for the rest of our family. Their simple idea is to blend the best of both worlds (nature and science) - a natural diet added with minimal amount of vitamins and minerals, creating a complete and balanced raw diet for the optimum nutritional needs of your canine and feline companions. 


Balanced Blends Raw Diet for Cats Ingredients

A well-balanced diet requires more than just fresh raw meat, bones, and organs (and fruits and vegetables for dogs), it also needs just the right blend of vitamins and minerals. All of their recipes are formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profile for all life stages and have NO grains, NO glutens, NO fillers, NO artificial coloring, and NO artificial preservatives. 

The chicken is USDA GRADE A, raised cage free, antibiotics free and has no added hormones. Their beef is USDA approved, naturally raised, antibiotic free, with no added hormones. and the fruits and veggies in the doggie formulas are organic, too!

Heck, Teri says we are eating better than she does!! It's true! She said it's hard work finding good, wholesome, humanely raised food for herself, but that Balanced Blends makes it super easy for her to feed us the best!
