Look at all the swag!

Hey everybuddy…Wally here.  FINALLY!  We got to break into that bag o’ swag.  Check out all the cool stuff that was in it!  There’s toys and treats and lots of foodables.  Oh, and a few things to keep us healthy.  And even some stuff for the mom.  This is some serious swag!  And…wanna know what?  This isn’t all of it!  We couldn’t get all of it in the picture.

Ernie stares at all the swag

I can’t believe my eyes, Wally.  I’m just gonna sit here and stare at all of it for awhile.

Not me, Ernie!  I’m gonna give this catnip & valerian filled toy a lick and a kick…or two or three or four.

Not only did we get BlogPaws swag, a few of our blogging friends gave us mini-swag bags.

We wanna thank Miss Teri and Coco the Couture Cat, Miss Dawn and Lola and Lexy, Miss Rhonda and Orion, Sammy and Emily, Mom Paula and Truffle and Brulee, Miss Ava and Christy Paws and Miss Lisa and Faraday, Maxwell and Allie for all the pawsome gifts!  The mini-swag bags contained some of the BEST stuff…like this fresh grown catnip straight from Allie’s garden.  *sniff sniff sniff* Ahhhh…it’s nectar from the gods…or at least from Kansas.

Y’know…the mom came home with so much stuff…we wanna share some of it with one of our readers.   We’re gonna put together a cool swag bag prize package and have a giveaway next week. We hope you all will stop by and enter.

No, Ernie…somebuddy needs to zip up that bag before you can get out!

Wally with BlogPaws swag bag

Hey everybuddy.  The mom finally got home from BlogPaws late yesterday.  She said she had the best time hanging with all the cat peeps…oh, and some dog peeps, too.

Look at this BIG bag of swag the mom brought home!  It’s stuffed!  And she said this wasn’t even all of it.  There’s more!  But she won’t let us have any yet.  *said in a whiney voice*  She was too tired to go through it all.

I don’t wanna wait!  *sniff sniff sniff*  I can smell the catnip already…so I know there’s some great stuff in here.  Y’know…when she’s sleeping…I’m gonna figure a way into this bag.  Just wait and see…

I'm not moving anytime soon

I bet you’re surprised to see me.  I’m taking over for Wally today…so you get to see what I’m doing!

The big traveling box came out of the closet the other day which means only one thing.  The mom is deserting us again and heading off to the BlogPaws conference.  This year it’s in Phoenix, AZ.  The mom says she’s gonna have hot time…literally!  It’s like a hundred and fifteen degrees there.  Whew!  That IS hot!

I’m thinking if l lay on top of the traveling box she won’t be able to fill it up…and then she won’t be able to go.  But, y’know…that’s never worked in the past.  Oh well, at least I have a nice napping spot…until the mom makes me move.  Pffffttt!

kfc-chicken-1The dad-guy is on feeding and litterbox scooping duty while the mom is gone. Which is okay with me.  ‘Cept he never seems to scoop the litterboxes enough. But he lets us get away with a lot of stuff…way more than the mom ever does.  And if we’re lucky, maybe the Colonel will make an appearance.   Can you say “extra crispy chicken?”  Yum!

With our typist not here to help us, we won’t be blogging over the next few days.  But you may find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram…the mom says she’ll post BlogPaws updates when she can.  So check for us there.  Otherwise, we’ll be back next week…and we’ll tell you all about the hot times at BlogPaws!

We're test-tasting Whole Earth Farms cat food

Hi everybuddy.  Wally here.  Today I wanna tell you about a new food we tried as part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach program.  It’s Whole Earth Farms™ grain free canned cat food.  

We’ve never heard of this brand of cat food before.  So, the mom went to the Whole Earth Farms™ website to find out more about it.  Whole Earth Farms™ pet foods are part of the Merrick Pet Care, Inc. company.  Merrick Pet Care, Inc. is known for its great quality pet foods.  Whole Earth Farms™ is a wholesome line of naturally nutritious pet foods that offer all the goodness from the earth at an affordable price.

Whole Earth Farms™ pet foods are:

  • Naturally nutritious made with high quality protein
  • Cooked in the USA with the earth’s best ingredients
  • Made with no ingredients from China and do not include any corn, wheat, by-products, artificial colors or preservatives
  • Very affordable

This all sounded great to the mom, so we asked to try the Whole Earth Farms™ grain free real duck recipe canned food.  It also comes in chicken, turkey, beef, salmon and tuna & whitefish recipes.

Whole Earth Farms grain free real duck recipe

You can see that it’s a pate food which is what we prefer.

Here are the ingredients of the duck recipe:  Duck, Chicken Broth, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Egg Product, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Organic Dried Alfalfa Meal, Sodium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Agar Gum, Flaxseed, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Thiamine Mononitrate), Potassium Chloride, Salt, Salmon Oil, Choline Chloride, Minerals (Zinc Amino Acid Complex, Iron Amino Acid Complex, Manganese Amino Acid Complex, Copper Amino Acid Complex, Potassium Iodide, Cobalt Glucoheptonate, Sodium Selenite), Locust Bean Gum, Xanthan Gum, Taurine, Yucca Schidigera Extract.

Sheesh…I don’t even know what most of that stuff is.  But duck is the first ingredient…so that’s good with me!

Wally's eating the Whole Earth Farms cat food

So, how did we like the Whole Earth Farms™ grain free real duck recipe?

Well, it was okay…we each gave it 2-paws up.  All of us ate it…but not as enthusiastically as we eat some of our other foods.  We even left a little bit in our dishes.  Maybe it was the duck flavor that we didn’t like as much.  Lately, the mom has been mixing it up with us, feeding us proteins other than chicken with limited success.  We may try the chicken flavor to see if we like it any better.

If you’d like to try the Whole Earth Farms™ grain free canned cat food, visit Chewy.com for more information and to order.  Right now, all the Whole Earth Farms™ pet foods are on sale.

I like sitting on the dad-guy

Hey everybuddy.  In honor of Dad’s Day, today’s selfie features me and the dad-guy.  Me and the dad-guy have a ritual every morning.  I help him put his work boots on before he heads off to the garden center.   Afterwards, he lets me sit in his lap and he gives me lots of pets and scritches. Yep…it’s our male-bonding time…just me and him.

Happy Dad’s Day to the dad-guy and all the other cat daddies out there!

Whisker Saver

Zoey-6.17.16-1

Hi everybuddy.  I’ve got something to show you today.  See these?  Do you know what they are?

These are Zoey's whiskers

If you said whiskers, you’d be right.  More specifically, my whiskers…ones that I’ve shed normally over time.

So why am I showing you all these whiskers?  Well, lemme tell you.  The lady with the yellow hair saves my whiskers every time she finds one.  Just look…she’s got a whole pile of them now.  Some curly, some long, some short.  She also saves Ernie’s and the orange stripey cat’s whiskers, too, if she finds them…but she has way more ones of mine than theirs.

Zoey-6.17.16-2

I don’t know about you, but I think the lady with the yellow hair has finally gone off the deep end.  I mean, seriously…what’s with the whisker fetish?  What’s she gonna do with all of them?  She says having them is kinda cool.  I just think it’s weird.  She needs to find another hobby.

How ’bout your humans?  Do any of them save your whiskers?

It's my 13th birthday!

Yes indeedee!  It’s my lucky 13th birthday!  And what would my birthday be without me sharing some Baby Wally pictures with you, right?

Look how little I was

That’s my mom-cat in the top picture.  She was a poor stray kitty that ended up in a motherly way. Fortunately for her…and ultimately me…she was found by someone and taken to a veterinarian clinic where one of the nice veterinarians took care of her until she had her babies…on this day, 13 years ago.

I was 1 of 6…the only orange one in the group.  Cod, I don’t even remember being that little.  And check out my feets!  Go ahead…you can squee…I know you want to.

Happy Birthday to Me!

So…♫ ♪ Happy Birthday to Me! ♪ ♫  C’mon…put on your party hats and let’s get this party started!
