Catatouille for two, Please. (A Chewy Review)

Hello everyone! It’s time for our Chewy review! This month as part of the Chewy Blogger Outreach Program I chose Natural Balance Delectable Delights Catatouille Stew. 

Delectable Delights is famous for flavors such as O'Fishally Scampi and Sea Brûlée, but we’re not fish girls in this house.  So when I saw Catatouille Stew on their menu, I knew we had to try it.

Dr. Catsby's Bowl For Whisker Relief - A Review

Hello everyone! I (Lexy) usually bring you the latest news on pet products through my reviews, but today Mother asked to take over the blog.  She really loves this product and wanted to share her thoughts on it.  Okay, Mother, go ahead…

I’ve discussed many times in the blog that Lola is not a big eater.  When she first came to live with me I noticed that if I took some dry food out of her bowl, put it on the floor and sat next to her, she’d eat.  Since she was so thin at that time I was just happy she ate.  Through the years I would do the same thing to get her to eat more, and I had no idea that Whisker Fatigue existed or that she could possibly be uncomfortable when she was eating.  Once I heard about it I tried different bowls that claimed to relieve whisker fatigue - low rimmed, shallow, oval… you name it, I tried it.  The result was that Lola didn’t spend any more time in front of the bowl eating.  I had heard great things about Dr. Catsby’sBowl For Whisker Relief and was very happy when I was contacted to do a review.

What is Whisker Fatigue?
While many cat lovers are enamored by the cuteness of whiskers, they serve more functions than making our furry kids look cute.  Whiskers provide cats with important information about their environment.  There is a receptor on the end of each whisker that send sensory signals to the brain and central nervous system.   Whisker fatigue occurs when whiskers (and those tiny receptors on the ends) touch the sides of the bowl. This can be very uncomfortable and even painful.

What are the signs of Whisker Fatigue?

Easter Poison Prevention

Hello everyone. This is Lexy checking in, and I’m back after a hiatus with some very important information for the humans. Did you know that this is National Poison Prevention Week? With Easter upon us, I thought I would give you some information on potential Easter poisons and some other Easter dangers.

Sunday Selfies - While the Mouse is Away the Cat Will Play! (And why We've Been Missing Lately!)

Hello and Happy Sunday! It's a Happy Sunday, indeed, because we're back to participating in Sunday Selfies! And I'm excited! (As you can tell!) We haven't participated in Sunday Selfies since January 17th! That's two whole months, and Lexy and I aren't happy about that.  

What's that Lexy? I should stop meowing and get on with the selfies? Well, I've got a lot to say! But you're right, onto the selfies! 

This is me and our cat sitter, Dawn. (How cool is that? She has the same name as Mommy!) We took this last week when Mommy was away on a business trip. I was giving her snuggles and I thought this would make for a fab selfie!

Tortitude: The BIG Book of Cats with a BIG Attitude - Book Review

I’ve been a fan of Ingrid King and The Conscious Cat long before I started blogging, so I’m very happy to share with you my review of her new book, Tortitude: the BIG Book of Cats with a BIG Attitude.

Not long after I started my Facebook page for Lola I came across Ingrid’s page for The Conscious Cat and I immediately knew I had to read Buckley’s Story (which was one of the first “cat books” I had read after entering the world of social media.) Buckley’s Story resonated with me on so many different levels and shortly after I finished it I just had to read Purrs of Wisdom. That book also resonated with me because Ingrid and I share many of the same “schools of thought”, views of life, and we are both Reiki practitioners.  I was lucky to meet Ingrid a few years ago (on a freezing December night) when she was in town for a signing, and twice after that (at BlogPaws and again when she was in town for a summit.)
