Ashton: The head peep may have packed her bags and skipped town to go to the Cat Writers Association/BarkWorld conference, but we didn’t forget.
Pierre: Lucky for us, in my entire life, there has only been one trick-or-treater who came to the door here, so we won’t have to work Aunt O. too hard answering the door. And we won’t have to hide from people knocking on the door.
Ashton: You’re weird, Newton.
Newton: You’re one to talk, miss hides-from-everybody. You don’t know what you’re missing out on.
Pierre: *sigh* You two are acting like a couple of kittens.
Newton: At least Aunt O. won’t try to put costumes on us for Halloween photos.
Pierre: Thank goodness. It’s better if we just have our photos taken for Halloween without all of the extra fuss. No costumes, no silly Photoshop tricks, Just cats, the way it should be.
Newton: Darn right. Have a safe and Halloween, everyone!
It’s true that every day is cat day, especially on the internet. And super-especially at our house.
But it isn’t that way for every cat everywhere. National Cat Day was was founded in 2005 to celebrate the cats in our lives for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us.
National Cat Day is also to also recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year. Here at our blog and around the blogosphere, we know how many cats are in shelters and need homes, but the general public doesn’t, so let’s remember to share that information so that on next year’s National Cat Day, more cats can say that they’re living the good life, too.
The head peep is attending BarkWorld/MeowWorld Social Media & Pet Blogging conference for the next few days, where she’ll get to learn more about blogging, photography, and even video. (You’ve seen her video skills around here before. She needs all the help she can get.) While she’s hanging out with other bloggers, we are going to be hanging out with Aunt Orvis.
This means a couple things things: We get lots of treats! It also means that we won’t be able to visit and comment until after she’s back. Don’t worry, we aren’t going silent. We have blog posts scheduled to go live while she is away. Also, since Plush Ashton is going with her, you’ll be able to keep up with Plush Ashton’s adventures on our Facebook page and Twitter account.
We hadn’t heard of Grandma Lucy’s before our friends at Chewy offered us the opportunity to review them. When the roasted chicken freeze-dried treats arrived, Pierre couldn’t wait to get started trying them out.
One of the things we didn’t realize even through the window on the front of the bag is that these treats are really big. They’re “pet treats” and meant for either cats or dogs, so they’re on the large side.
This isn’t a problem. Just get your human to break them up for you. They were kind of stiff and didn’t come apart easily, probably due to Grandma Lucy’s roasting and freeze-drying process. But if you bend them along the grain of the meat instead of across the grain, they snap apart without too much effort.
Newton: Enough looking at the food. It’s time for eating!
Ashton: Me first! I want one of the big pieces!
Newton: You always go first because if you don’t, you steal everybody else’s, Ashton.
The harder texture meant that Pierre especially didn’t want to eat really big pieces. He preferred they be chunked up into small bits. Otherwise, he would gnaw on the large piece and give up. The rest of us ate any size piece you would give us, because it’s chicken and nothing but chicken. We like when there aren’t any ingredients we can’t pronounce on the label.
The treats are made in the USA, and not just “made in the USA” with ingredients from China, either. The ingredients (all one of them) are originated right here in the US from hormone and antibiotic free meats, so we felt confident about eating these treats.
Newton: Sorry, everyone. You’re going to have to go to Chewy and get your own. I like these so much that this bag is all mine!
We give these roasted chicken freeze-dried treats a big paws up.
