A Fun and Festive Tasty Tuesday (#ChewyInfluencer)

Recently, as part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, the kitties and pup Astrid all got to try out some fun and festive treats. Today, the kitties will be sharing their thoughts on the crunchy Christmas goodies they tested. So, what treats, exactly, did the kitties try out?

The kitties tried out Blue™ Kitty CravingsⓇ Stocking Stuffers crunchy cat treats in chicken. That being said, I'm going to cut right to the chase and admit that I lost complete and utter control of this review and photo shoot.

I'm thinking the photos speak for themselves in this case. I'll summarize the state of affairs by saying that while resident kitties Thimble and Eddy don't eat any treats at all and so didn't touch these, devoted treat-eaters Evan, Toby, Tonks, and Winky all devoured the Blue™ Kitty CravingsⓇ Stocking Stuffers. They literally could not wait for me to open the bag, or for me to give them seconds, and thirds, and fourths. It looks like these treats will indeed be making their way into these kitties' stockings.

(Disclaimer: As members of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received Blue™ Kitty CravingsⓇ Stocking Stuffers crunchy cat treats in chicken in exchange for an honest review.

Wishing you all a Tuesday as tasty as ours!

Our Festive Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

Today's Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tip is to know and understand symptoms of and potential treatments for diabetic complications such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). As we mentioned yesterday, hypoglycemia might result from a cat or dog failing to eat, and especially if they are still given insulin even when not eating, their blood sugar can drop dangerously. Hypoglycemia can result in any number of symptoms, which might include increased appetite, vomiting, rapid breathing, lethargy, and difficulty walking.

One quick trick to potentially help a hypoglycemic cat or dog in an emergency is to have honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, or some form of sugar syrup available. Rubbing a sugary substance such as one of these on a hypoglycemic animal's gum line or in their cheeks can help to raise their glucose to a safer level. Of course, discuss with your veterinarian any questions you have regarding hypoglycemia and reversing it. Also alert your veterinarian of any hypoglycemic events your furbaby has, so that better diabetes management can be achieved. What's more, get a hypoglycemic furbaby to the vet as soon as possible, if needed.

I was going to get these for Mudpie but she usually isn't a fan of the "healthier" treats. Cutest packaging EVER though!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I wish I'd chosen these! Then again, we've got a ton of treats for the cats to eat here already :)
