Orijen Product Review

Mr Chewy contacted us about reviewing a food called Orijen. Our mom was very curious about this food, and decided to let us give it a try. Please note, we were given a free bag of food from Mr Chewy in return for our review. The views of this product are our own though.
We tried the Orijen Cat and Kitten Dry Food.  Upon opening the bag, we were very excited about the new smells.  We all enjoyed the food at first inspection, however, as is normally in case in our house, once the newness wears off, this was not a preferred food.  We will still eat it, but not as ravenously as we did the first time we saw it.

Our mom did some research on the company, and also read the materials provided by Mr Chewy.  One of her favorite features of the food is that "Champion PetFoods closely works with local farmers, fishermen, food processing innovators, and the scientific community to produce the highest quality products.  Arriving fresh from the region each day, the meat is never frozen and never exposed to heat or chemicals."  Shopping and buying locally is something mom is quite fond of, so this was a plus to her about the Orijen food.

Since we weren't overly fond of the food, we asked around to some of our friends to see if they liked this food, or had tried it.  One friends cat LOVES the Fish formula, and can't get enough of it! 

Another friends cat enjoyed her sample pack we provided her and gobbled it right up.

For our review, the Four Crazy Cats are giving Two paws out of four, since we did not continue to choose this bowl over our other food.

Our Mom gives it 1-1/2 thumbs up...deducting half a thumb for not pleasing the cats all the time.  Great job on the company aspects and the concepts.

If you would like to try this food for yourself, check out Mr Chewy's Website.

Thankful Thursday

The mom here today...

I am thankful for my boys...
I am thankful that they get along with one another and seem to enjoy each others company
I am thankful they are healthy
I am thankful Smokey is gaining weight
I am thankful Tanner is losing some
I am thankful Devon is a controlled eater and can maintain his weight just fine :)
I am thankful for the days off work I had this week to spend time with them

I am hopeful that Tanner's new medicine will help with his inappropriate pottying. 
I am hopeful that Smokey's new allergy shot schedule will keep him itch free this allergy season.

I am thankful for snuggles and playtime

Mancats Love the Weekend

Mancats love the weekend, but don't we all?
 There is plenty of nap time...Tanner takes advantage of the bed in the chair...he still has a good view of the bird tv outside.
 Devon loves to lay in a bed on a cozy blanket...this is the life!  It was very cold here this weekend, so those blankets were a must!
 Tanner loves that mom is home and plays with him a lot...can we play now?
 Ah yeah, my favorite new string...mom got me this green one in Japan!  Pay no attention to my girlie long finger nails...we also went to the spa, so I am back to being a manly mancat!
Smokey shows us that at any age a Mancat must get a silly notion once in a while...sitting on/in the end table is pretty silly!

There you have it...we hope you all had a great weekend too.  We are already looking forward to the next one!

Mancats like Mr Chewy

Mr Chewy sent us a request for an honest review of their website, products and service.  We were excited for this opportunity and placed an order right away to be able to give a good review.  Since Mr Chewy offers free shipping on orders over $49, we made sure ours was over that amount.  Paying for shipping is highly overrated and we avoid it if we can. 

We ordered some of the food we normally eat, and were please that Mr Chewy had the larger size bag, than the one we get at Petsmart, and the price was better too.  We also tried out a new food and some new treats. 

The order was shipped very quickly, and we had our food at the door in about 3 days from the time we placed the order.  This is very efficient!  Mr Chewy also has an automatic ship program, where they will send your items to you on a schedule.  This would be good for our mom because she tends to be a bit forgetful at times!
The box the food came in was quite large, and Devon thought this was a nice touch, since it also doubled as a toy for him! Mr Chewy thinks of everything!

Some facts about Mr Chewy:
  • 70+ brands
  • Subscription based ordering
  • Prompt Shipping in the US
  • Free shipping on orders over $49
The Four Crazy Cats give Mr Chewy  - 4 paws up!

Thursday in the Garden

We have been fortunate to be able to enjoy some really nice weather this winter, if you can even call it winter around here.  The boys have done a great job of helping in the garden, here's a preview...
 You'll need to biggify, but Smokey (near the tree), Devon (near the catnip) and Tanner all love to explore in the yard.  The trees are all bare.  The grass is mostly brown. But there is fresh nip growing and a few other things...
 Tanner loves to lay near the holly tree.  There are berries on it this year for the birds.  This is a great place to catch whiffies of possible introoders!
 On the ground we have meal worms for the birds...yes, we put them there on purpose!  We put some in the feeder, but the cardinals like to eat off the ground.  Tanner is watching a few try to get away!  The nandina are a bright red in the background!
The surprise of the garden is the daffodils starting to appear!  Let's hope the groundhog doesn't see his shadow today, so spring can get here soon!
