This Nutro™ mulitpack comes with a chicken and beef recipe, as well as a salmon and trout recipe. Let's be honest, the kitties around here don't seem to have intestines equipped for fishy foods, so they just tried out the chicken and beef variety. (The neighbor cat, strays, and ferals outdoors are enjoying the fish flavor!)
The good thing is that this food is a paté variety. The kitties will essentially only eat paté, because chunks and morsels are apparently disgusting. Around here, we don't chew, we only slurp.
What's also great about this Nutro™ Wild Frontier™ food is that it's made with real chicken, or real salmon, as the first ingredient. It also grain-free and contains no corn, wheat, soy, or artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. That sure all sounds great, doesn't it? But, the main test is whether the finicky felines around here deem it worthy. So, what did they think?
Our housemate Toby was the first one to try it out. He gave it more than a few licks, which is a great sign from any kitty in this house.
Evan (the blur in that photo up there) gave the Nutro™ Wild Frontier™ food a good sniff, but did not at this time taste test it.
The real kicker was when Thimble gave it a few licks. Eddy is by far the most finicky kitty in the house and simply will not eat any moist food (hence why you never see her in our review posts, because she simply just couldn't care less). Thimble is probably the next pickiest kitty in the house, which is why her giving this Nutro™ Wild Frontier™ food a go is a great sign.
The kitties did not finish the Nutro™ food in their bowls in one sitting. That means nothing, though, as it takes them hours to finish even their most favorite moist food meals. The kitties around here are the epitome of grazing nibblers. Throughout the day, though, the bowls filled with Nutro™ Wild Frontier™ moist food got emptier and emptier, which means some kitties were stealthily enjoying the food, which also means it gets at least a few paws up from us!

Our Doodle of the Day:
Our little doodle today is in honor of the first day of spring, which just so happens to be today.
I always know spring really is upon us when I start seeing and hearing robins, and I saw lots of robins on the beautiful walks I took with pup Astrid this weekend. Robins may look like a plain and simple bird, but they are my favorite.
Our Tip of the Day:Today's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip is one that relates to our previous tips on pesticides, but is also one upon which we failed to expand. The type of pesticide of which we speak today is none other than mothballs. Mothballs come in a variety of forms, and typically release gas vapors intended to repel or kill moths, or other pests. When it comes to our furbabies, mothballs can cause toxicity via inhalation, skin contact, or ingestion. Dogs are perhaps the most likely to ingest mothballs, but cats are more sensitive to their effects. Old-fashioned mothballs are the most dangerous, as they contain naphthalene. More modern mothballs are typically formulated to be less dangerous to kitties, pups, and ourselves, but they can still pose risks. Mothball poisoning can result in vomiting, lethargy, difficulty breathing, or even failure of organs such as the liver or kidneys.
Needless to say, it is likely best to avoid the use of mothballs altogether. There are alternatives to ridding your clothes or areas of the home of moths. Some of these methods may require more laborious cleaning and may indeed be more time-consuming than simply tossing in a mothball, but the health of your furbaby is well worth the effort.
