We apologize for being late posting today - someone (whose initials are M.O.M.M.Y.) is running around preparing her materials for the Cat Writers' Association Conference this Friday. Not that it's any excuse whatsoever.
Especially since she clearly won an award for the wrong photo:
(In case any of you were wondering, the photo she won the certificate for was this one, though why she would enter one of Allie when she could have entered one of me is beyond my comprehension.)
But I digress! I dutifully brought to her attention that she was delinquent with today's post, and what does she do? Rushes around muttering about baking Allie's birthday cake.
To which I reply (in a quite rational tone) "but mommy, her birfday was FRIDAY. Today's the day after Caturday." Which just made her act even more crazy. HUMANS!
|The cans in question (do not dust|
the chicken for paw prints, you
won't find any. Just meowing.)
They gave her two cans of Beef Wellington - which she adores because she's snooty that way - and two cans of Chicken Pate (which I stole cuz it's character building for her to learn to share).
Here she is
Yeah, she's snooty that way, too.
Mommy likes the fact that Merrick makes all their own food and it's 100% free of ingredients from China, and if you've been watching the news lately, you know how important that is. Just last week, the FDA released an update on their research into pet treats from China that have caused over 3,600 dogs and cats in the U.S. to fall ill, and almost 600 to die.
Bottom line, there are still no solutions, and it's imperative that pet owners actively avoid foods with ingredients from China until this plague of bad pet food has been resolved. So Merrick made a good first impression with her on that count!
Merrick also lists a minimum of 9% animal protein (which is good since cats cannot properly digest plant protein and cheaper pet food brands are notorious for upping the protein percentage by sneaking plants in!). And we're 100% supportive of grain free and wet foods for cats.
|Nah, the innocent angel look isn't working for us either!|
(C'mon Maxie, Merrick tastes good...!)
It's a good thing Chewy carries lotsa grain free brands, cuz we're still looking for that canned food that'll break Maxwell of his kibble habit.
We're wide open to suggestions.
Chewy.com graciously gave us the cans of Merrick cat food to review but we were not compensated for writing this post. All opinions are our own.
