Tuesday Taste Test (#ChewyInfluencer)

This week, it's the kitties' turn to try out something new. As part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we got to choose from some wonderful products, and ultimately settled on Evo­™ chicken and turkey moist food in gravy.

As we've mentioned before, the kitties here are finicky eaters. And that's putting it lightly. You'll be lucky to find a moist food that even one of them will eat, let alone one that all of them will eat. But, I believe in miracles, and so I decided to have those finicky felines try out some Evo­™ for the first time ever.

One of the requirements for my kitties to be the least finicky as possible is that the food must be paté. Luckily, this smelly goodness is just that.

This Evo™ chicken and turkey moist food is also 95% animal protein, as well as free of grains and gluten. Sounds great, right? Well, the kitties got to be the ultimate judges of that. So, I called those blurry judges in...

...and not a single one of them ate it. To be honest, not even pup Astrid would eat it, and she loves cat food (more so than dog food, in fact). Finicky felines and picky pups abound here at our home.

But, fear not! My parents have 11 cats (some of you may or may not remember that, at last count, that number was 7, which means you have 4 newbies to meet soon). Out of those 11 kitties, 8 of them gobbled down the Evo™  moist food like it was going out of style. So, while it gets 0 paws up from the cats at our home, it gets 32 paws up from the kitty clan that owns my parents.

(Disclaimer: As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received Evo™ chicken and turkey moist cat food in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own. We only review products that we believe will be of interest to our readers, and we never recommend a product that we do not believe in.)

Happy Tuesday to everybuddy!

Our Doodle of the Day:

(This one's in honor of the love my parents' kitties' showed their new Evo™ food. Gold stars all around!)

Our Tip of the Day:
Always be sure to take your furbaby's size, age, and health into consideration when setting up their food station(s) in the home. For example, large dogs and those with deep chests do best with an elevated food bowl, as having to reach to the floor to eat can be both difficult and perhaps even dangerous for them. Older dogs as well as cats often do best with elevated food bowls for similar reasons. Speaking of age, for furbabies who are old and arthritic, try placing their food and water dishes near to their favorite snoozing spot, so that they don't have to travel far to obtain a meal or a drink. Also be sure to observe and see what your furbaby seems to prefer with regard to mealtime. For example, while some cats or dogs might enjoy eating in the thick of the home's action, with their humans, others might eat better if their food and water is removed to a secluded area of the home. Food and water intake is of course essential, so always be sure to make these necessities easy for your furbaby to enjoy.

We may have to try Evo out on Mr. PICKY (aka Teddy). He hasn't met a wet food he likes since we adopted him (and believe me we've tried!). I want him to have wet food with dry as a supplement but sadly he only eats dry. NOT GOOD. Thanks for the tip!

Hugs, Pam

I can't wait to hear more about your parents' new additions. Your folks sound like such wonderful people which explains why there daughter it too.
I love the drawing, I always say to my Mom and hubby that they get a gold star when they do something they are supposed to :) And that is an excellent tip about food placement.

That is great that the parent's kitties liked the food. It sounds like good food. All the kitties here are very picky too. You all have a great day.

I love that concept of high protein content. Protein content is actually the first thing I look at. Cats are funny. Bear and Kitty refused pate ... but yours prefer it. I wonder if there's some reason a group of cats prefer one over the other (learning from the others? personality traits we look for that favor one variety over another?). I'm glad {most of} your parents' cats loved it. I probably analyze things too much when the answer is as simple as cats have their own preferences and biases just like us humans.

We know that's a good quality food...so we're glad to hear the other kitties will enjoy it.
