Tuesday Taste Test (#ChewyInfluencer)

This review is a just a tad bit late, but we believe late is at least better than never. So, as part of Chewy.com's Blogger Outreach Program, the kitties reviewed the Blue Buffalo WildernessⓇ variety pack of moist food.

This pack comes with food in chicken, duck, and salmon flavors. Each of the foods is rich in protein, as well as free of grain, corn, wheat, and soy. The food is paté, which sounded fantastic to me, since that is the only type of moist food the felines around here will touch.

I started with dishing out the chicken variety for the kitties, as they all tend to be fans of this avian flavor. Evan seemed to smell it first, and you know what?

Evan enjoyed himself a little snack of this yummy goodness! Given the finicky nature of the feline food snobs that live here, this is always a good sign.

And you know what else?

Even Eddy was drawn in for a sniff. That's all she gave it, just a sniff. But, that's more than she typically does when it comes to moist food. She usually outright turns her nose up to it, but this time she was at least mildly intrigued.

Though there is no photographic evidence of it, both Thimble and Toby took a couple licks of the Blue Buffallo WildernessⓇ chicken moist food as well. It was just a couple of licks, but again, for the kitties around here, that's pretty darn good.

When it came to the duck flavor, none of the kitties were impressed. No one would touch it. And I, personally, do not feed my furbabies food of the fish variety, but we can tell you that the strays and ferals outdoors like it! From my picky kitties, though, it's the chicken flavor that gets at least a couple paws up!

(Disclaimer: As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received Blue Buffalo WildernessⓇ canned moist 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.)

We hope all of our furiends have some tasty goodies today! Happy Tuesday!


Yesterday we asked you furiends of ours for your opinion. In order to make time for some side projects we have in the works, we need to make our daily posts just a tad bit quicker to produce. To do that, we decided to cut back the frequency of one of the two more time-consuming parts of each of our daily posts, those being our doodles and our tips. We asked you all which one you prefer, so that we could better choose which one would remain a daily occurrence.

Thank you all for your input! It was our daily doodles for which nearly everyone expressed a preference. That's sort of what we guessed, and it makes us happy that our artsy fartsy fun brings our furiends joy. So, the doodles will remain daily! The tips will still be a part of our blog, but starting this month we're thinking they'll be a weekly thing, perhaps always on Tuesdays, like today.

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tuesday Tip of the Week:
I'm sure all of us have known a furry Dumpster diver or two. You know, those pups or kitties who help themselves to the scraps in the trash can? The problem is that, as I'm sure all of you know, some of the items we throw in the trash are simply not good for our furbabies. We might throw away anything from broken glass to chicken bones, and everything in between. Some items we throw in there could be toxic, while others potentially injurious. This is why it is so important to ensure that you have a trash bin from which your furbaby cannot steal garbage. Try selecting a trash can that has a secure lid, or that is too tall for your furbaby to reach. Sometimes a secured location has to be selected for the trash can, such as by placing it in a pantry or closet, or under the sink or in another cabinet that cannot be opened by a curious kitty or pup. Another option is to simply put all trash in a bin outside of the home, such as one located outdoors or in the garage. They say that one man's trash is another man's treasure, but that also goes for our furbabies, and so that's why we must do our best to maintain pet-safe trash receptacles.

We had to get a trashcan with a good lid becuz of Crockett - he used to fish in the trash as a kitten.

Oh we're happy you'll continue the daily doodles....we love them.....and while Sammy was a fan of pate and would ONLY eat that type with a little extra water/gravy in it, Teddy has very little interest in wet food (sadly). I would PREFER him to eat wet but we've tried almost every possible brand with no luck. We haven't tried Blue yet - we'll give it a whirl - thanks for the honest review!

Hugs, Pam

WE are so glad that the doodles are staying. They make me smile every morning. Great review on the food. It sure looks good. You all have a super day.

We're glad some of the food was a hit...sort of. :)

I am glad the ferals will be getting some high quality food even if your kitties are food snobs :) Very cute drawing, now I want a donut. I am glad you will still be doing your drawings and also keeping the tips once a week. This is a very good tip, whenever we have chicken bones or anything like that, they go right out to the trash bin instead of the kitchen trash because Millie will find them.

Timmy Tomcat said...

So glad you are keeping the doodles. We love them. We have a can with a flip lid just for cat food cans. We get to lick them out as a treat before dad puts them in the bin.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

It's funny how an entire of house of cats all prefer pate ... there's got to be some social element to it. Bear won't eat pate - and though she ate pate at the beginning, after a couple weeks here, Ellie started ignoring pate as well (which really sucks since the i/d the vet gave us to help with her diarrhea only comes in pate). I know very little about Blue Buffalo - but your review made me curious and now I'm off to read up :)

Mudpie would fit into your feline family just fine ;)

Looks like you have a delicious meal in front of you little ones! <3

The powder on the kitty's face after enjoying a bite of that doughnut is just too cute!

Cats Herd You said...

It's nice to see that they liked some of the flavors. Duck seems to be one of those flavors that cats either love or hate, and there's no in between!

My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

That was a good review. We've never had kitty food but we bet it's good.

We love our duck, turkey, and beef pates, but they are Whole Earth

meowmeowmans said...

Well, it sounds like that food was kind of okay. At least for Evan. :)
