Tuesday Taste Test (#ChewyInfluencer)

We sure are late in doing this month's reviews as part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program. You can blame the human.

Well, anyway, the finicky felines are here today to let you know what they think of InstinctⓇ grain-free minced chicken recipe in savory gravy. This wet food food is not only grain-free, but also made from real chicken, as well as fruits and vegetables.

The kitties around here prefer food of the paté variety. This food does contain morsels, but it also has a decent amount of gravy. I thought that might be in its favor. But, I don't get the final say here.

So, I called for the kitties, and they (blurrily) made their way over.

Thimble in all of her blurry glory.

Blurry Evan. Maybe some day I'll learn how to take proper action shots.

It's no surprise that this one's blurry. Eddy is in it, after all.

Now, what did the furbabies have to say about the InstinctⓇ chicken food? Toby licked the food, and Eddy even came over for a sniff. Given that Eddy usually gives moist food little to no attention, I thought that was a good sign. But, alas, ultimately none of the kitties around here ate it.

Fear not, though. As always, my parents' 11 kitties came to the rescue. They are not picky, unlike my kitties, and they thoroughly enjoyed the InstinctⓇ food.

So, the final tally is 0 out of 16 paws up here at our house, and 44 out of 44 paws up at my parents' house.

(Disclaimer: As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received InstinctⓇ grain-free minced chicken recipe in savory gravy 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.)

Wishing all of you a tasty Tuesday!


Today is the last day of our Ten Days of Tortie series. For this one, we of course went festive again. But, we also wanted to yet again create a doodle in honor of the very tortie who inspired this series. So, we channeled the Christmas card we received from lovely Mudpie last year, and doodled up a tortie and her Christmas pudding.

Tomorrow we will start a another series of doodles starring certain furbabies who we believe don't get enough publicity. We will continue creating series of doodles in this manner over time. As we mentioned yesterday, we'll even be doing another Ten Days of Tortie series after Christmas. After all, torties more than deserve their time to shine!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today's Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tip is to make sure that you have your diabetic furbaby on a diet suited to them and their health. Many veterinarians will put a diabetic cat or dog on a high protein, high fiber, low fat diet. It is important to balance nutrients in a way to keep blood glucose as normal as possible, and also to help the diabetic furbaby maintain a healthy weight. Of course, when it comes to feeding a diabetic furbaby, do discuss this with your veterinarian. They can help point you to healthy food options, whether they be prescription diets or not. The veterinarian may also calculate the calories your diabetic furbaby will need in a day to stay healthy and fit, so that their diabetes can better remain under control. And, as always, be sure to let your veterinarian know of any concerns you have regarding your furbaby's diabetes and diet.

Teddy won't eat wet food at all but Angel Sammy did - and it had to be a pate' with no chunks OR he'd just slurp the liquid around the chunks! I wound up trying to mash the chunks up but even THAT didn't work. They like what they like PERIOD. LOL Love your Christmas "Mudpie" graphic - very cute.

Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too)
