I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Nutrish for Cats. I received a sample of Nutrish for Cats to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Who Doesn’t Love Rachael Ray?
I credit Rachael Ray with being one of the people who taught me how to cook when I was in my early 20s. And if you are wondering just how badly I needed the help, ask Tim, who still likes to remind me about the meal I made served one evening that, among other things, had ground beef, tater tots, and Cheetos in it. It seemed perfectly reasonable at the time, y’all.
Rachael Ray and her totally awesome 30 minute meals have been an inspiration for me. She has such great ideas for getting food on the table fast…and GOOD food, at that (sorry bout ya Cheetos).
Just last week I made a crazy good, crazy easy salmon recipe of hers. It was fresh, flavorful, and colorful to boot!
Nutrish for Cats
Now it’s time for the kitties of the house to feel the Rachael Ray love. She has created a line of healthy cat food products called Nutrish for Cats and we recently got to introduce our cats to some of the offerings.
Up first, the easy-to-please newest addition to our family, Rose.
Rose was adopted from McKamey Animal Center a little over a month ago. She came from a hoarding situation, and as a result, we immediately noticed her very strong preference for human food over pet food (she likely had to forage around the house for scraps of whatever she could find). It took about a week, but we got her to start eating pet food, and now she’s pretty happy with whatever we put in her bowl.
Rose got the dry Nutrish for Cats to sample, gave it a sniff, and then had a little snack, right on the spot. Two paws up!
And now for the resident ice queen, Hattie.
Hattie is 12 years old, and we’ve had her for 9 of those years. She is an absolutely beautiful cat, and she’s also quite large! We think she might be part Maine Coon, actually. One thing she isn’t, though, is friendly. She’s not aggressive, just wants everyone to leave her alone. And she wants to be the only cat in the house, on account of her HATING cats.
So when Rose came home, well, that went over like a turd in a punch bowl, lemme tell ya.
The cats still don’t eat in the same part of the house, which is the way Hattie wants it. The poor old girl has been having such a rough month, what with the presence of that disgustingly adorable furball, so I thought she might want to try the wet Nutrish for Cats as a special treat.
OMG, y’all. SHE PURRED WHILE SHE ATE! She doesn’t purr, as a general rule, and she dang sure isn’t going to purr while eating…how undignified would that be?! But alas, she did just that, and she didn’t even look up from the plate once until it was completely licked clean. So, um, yeah…gonna call that one a WIN!
