Wordy Wednesday #chewyinfluencer

What?  Didn't we do a review yesterday?   Yes we did but we have another exciting product to share with you today from our friends at Chewy.

Ellie would like to discuss litter with you today.

Really Mom?   At least you didn't take a photo of me INSIDE the box!!!  Can't a girl get ANY privacy around here?

Anyway...on to our review.  We were given the opportunity to try Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Walnut-based Multi Cat Quick Clumping litter.....try saying THAT 3 times fast!

Mom poured it out into a small litter box to see how we would react to it before putting it in the regular box.  She also wanted us to show you how different it looks.

Don't worry.....we won't get any more graphic with photos!!   We know what you really want to know....how does it clump, is it dusty, does it track?    Here's some info from the Chewy site:

DescriptionBlue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Multi-Cat Quick-Clumping Cat Litter offers pet parents incredible odor control and long-lasting absorbency. It's so absorbent, it takes less litter to get the job done, which means each bag goes a lot farther and less is wasted. Made from a proprietary blend of the fibrous materials found in the walnut shell, this litter neutralizes litter box odors better than clay, pine and wheat. It produces harder clumps than pine, corn and wheat in as little as 15 minutes, making clean-up simple and mess-free. Unlike clay litters which throw off silica dust, Blue's Naturally Fresh is virtually dust-free so you and your cat can breathe easy. And because it doesn’t stick to your cat’s paws, it won’t be tracked throughout your house.Key Benefits
  • Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh litter is quick-clumping and formulated for households with multiple cats.
  • If offers superior absorption and odor control because it's made from a proprietary blend of walnut shells, proven to neutralize odor better than clay, pine and wheat litters. In fact, it absorbs 3X more that the leading brand clay litter. Since it's more absorbent you can use less meaning one bag goes a lot farther that an equally sized clay litter.
  • Naturally Fresh litter is 100% natural and eco-friendly. It's made from annually renewable sources and is biodegradable if composted or disposed of in a similar fashion. It contains no chemical, toxins, clay, corn, or grains, so it's safe for you and your kitten.
  • Virtually dust-free means you can breathe easier in your home, unlike clay litter which throws off silica dust, which isn't good for pets or owners with respiratory problems. It's low tracking so you won't have litter throughout your home carried by your furry friend's paws and helps you maintain a clean environment for you cat by hard clumping so clean up is breeze.
  • Made in the USA from homegrown walnut shells!

We were very interested in trying this new litter because Mom is in search of the purrfect, dust free and non-tracking litter.   We found the litter to REALLY  be virtually dust-free!  That's a great plus.  We didn't track it out of the box like some litters (we DID kick some out of the box)   As we've mentioned before, our litter boxes are vented to the outside so we never really have an odor problem.  The litter clumps really well and that makes for easier scooping!  If you're looking for a natural litter, you should try the Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Walnut-based Multi Cat Quick Clumping litter,   Another plus?  The bag doesn't weigh a TON and, since it's more absorbent, each bag will last you longer!  A win for us kitties AND a win for your pet parent!!!

We were not compensated for this review but did receive the product free of charge for our fair and honest review.

HERE's the link to get some of this super litter for yourself.  You should try it....we think you'll be pleased.  Did you know you can also get your items shipped to you on Auto-Ship?   You'll save an additional 5% if you use Auto-Ship.  We get our dry noms on Auto-Ship which means we NEVER run out!!!

ManCat Monday

Hi All,

I hope you don't get bored with my posts about Cat Scouts but I wanted to share a fun event that my pal Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats hosted at Scouts this weekend.  Cat Scouts University competed against Meowville U

I competed in the Javelin Toss.

As you can see, my opponent was disqualified.  We found out he was on STEROIDS.

Allie competed in the hurdles....

Graphic by Sammy

Her opponent wore a harness and really does NOT appear to be a CAT! 

The Meowville  U gang turned out to be a bunch of hooligans!  CSU easily won the competition and sent the Meowville U gang home on their bus.

 Look at the super trophy we all got!

Sunday Selfies with Ellie

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.

Oh darn....now the leaf is in my face.....

Better, but I still have flowers in my face...

I'll just come over here.....doing a Selfie is hard work and I need a snooze!!

Earth Day and Caturday Cat Art

Today is EARTH DAY!   In the spirit of Earth Day we're recycling this post from 2009!  Since that date, Mom has gotten really good about using her reusable bags every time she goes to the store.  She's even gotten more bags than these pink ones!  We have single stream recycling and we recycle a LOT more now that it can all go into one can.

Allie says that reusable shopping bags help keep the Earth clean!

And they make a good place to take a nap!!

An Earth Day Song:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

Reduce, reuse, recycle; words that we all know.
We have to save our planet so we can live and grow.
We might be only cats, but we will try, you’ll see.
And we will save the planet; it starts with you and me!

Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop hosted by our pal Athena.

Ellie wanted to celebrate Earth Day too - we used Imikimi to make our artwork!

Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's letter is "S" and our poem is titled


Raz and Allie are Cat Scouts
They have fun, there is no doubt!
Scouts do good deeds
and help those in need.
Cat Scouts go on Quests
and do their very best!
The Flagman is scary
When he shows up, we're wary!
Scout Raz is a Rumbler
and never a grumbler.
Wolverine Patrol for Allie
They don't dilly-dally!
So do a good purr
And groom your fur.
We're sending loud shouts

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Remember the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby competition  that we asked you to vote for our Fire Truck in?

The celebrity judge was Jackson Galaxy from  the TV show "My Cat From Hell" (isn't that pawsome?  We tied for Third Place in the Most Creative category and won  The  "stick-to-it-tiveness PURRseverence Award" because we finished the competition even though the fire truck had to put out some fires on the track!  We're THANKFUL for all of our pals who voted for us and for the chance to compete in such a fun event!!!

Allie checks the package out and reads the direction (please ignore the blurry picture...Mom forgot to use her flash)

Many Moods on Monday

Whew....Easter was fun but it sure was tiring.  We were sure happy when we woke up and saw that the Easter Bunny came by our house.  We got super treats and some nice stinky goodness!  Thanks Easter Bunny!!  Ellie really got into opening the basket up!

As much fun as we had with our basket and with our friends on Easter....we were very sad when we woke up Easter morning and read that our special friend Nellie had gone to the Bridge.  We knew Nellie's time was short but it still hurts....a LOT

Please stop by Nellie's blog Nellie on the Edge and leave a kind word.  We know her Mom is heartbroken.  We love you Nellie and will miss you a lot but you left a big Nellie sized pawprint on our hearts.
