Sky Watch – Mammatus Clouds

Dear Furiends,mtele

I found this amazing photo of mammatus clouds on Pinterest. This type of cloud usually forms on the underside of a cumulonimbus, but they can develop underneath cirrocumulus, altostratus, altocumulus and stratocumulus. In order for them the form, the sinking air must be cooler than the air around it and have high liquid water or ice content.

Keep an eye on the sky, dear furiends – there are amazing things up there.

Halo Liv-a-Littles Chicken Breast Freeze-Dried Treats

DSC_0375Most of the time, if anyone is going to be picky, it is Mr. M (he literally puts his nose up). Purrseidon usually will eat anything and Halo’s freeze-dry salmon treats are her absolute favorite treat. When the Chewy box arrived, Mr. M looked very interested and as it was opened, then he asked nicely for a Halo Liv-a-Littles Chicken Breast Freeze-Dried Treat (Purrseidon was busy claiming the chewy box, while he was working his charm). M likes Halo’s salmon treats, but loves this chicken breast one.

Purr was not thrilled with the fact that Mr. M got first taste or that he refused to pose DSC_0370with the Halo Liv-a-Littles Chicken Breast Freeze-Dried Treats jar but came for the actual “tasting” (with camera). Saphera was thrilled that these treats are for dogs, too and chicken is allowed on her diet.

Halo’s meat based diets only use whole DSC_0373meat, so these are natural treats for either cats or dogs. These freeze-dried treats let you reward your pet with the benefits of a healthy high-protein snack. Halo’s treats can be given whole or crumbled and added to food as a tasty incentive at mealtime.

  • Freeze-dried pieces of chicken breast that are low calorie, natural and a nutritious protein treat
  • Grain-free product great for pets with sensitive stomachs.
  • No wheat, molasses, sugar or tapioca
  • Portable, easy to close jar keeps treats fresh and is suitable for dogs and cats of all ages
  • Made in the USA

Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety

DSC_0203I loved Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety. The food is a combination of pate and soup, which made it easy for Mr. M to eat, too. The names of the flavors gave everyone a chuckle. These are 3.2 ounce cans, which is just the right size for a meal for one. Kitty Gone Wild is wild salmon au jus (that is highfaluting French for in juice, but I guess it sounds posh); Chicken Frick ‘A Zee is chicken au jus; Funk in the trunk is chicken, tuna and pumpkin au jus; Lamb Burger-ini is lamb and tuna au jus. (Kitty Gone wild is all our favorite, but all four flavors are so delicious that we licked our bowls clean.) DSC_0215

We hadn’t heard of Weruva so Mr. M researched the company prior to agreeing to review the product…. He believes that good food is better than medicine and since these recipes have vitamins he’s probably correct. I loved the names of the recipes, but Mr. M only started getting confident when he realized this was a US company. He started liking the company when he clicked on the ‘meet the staff’ page and met staff1them…. Like us, Webster, Rudi & Vanessa all began life feral. Webster, Rudi & Vanessa also are big-hearted enough to include a dog sibling. We both can identify with this. DSC_0220

Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food was inspired by DSC_0349the family kitchen, and it is also known as “people food for pets.” Weruva uses uses high protein recipes that are delicious as well as complete and balanced nutrition, but the stFF2easy-to-serve cans are an excellent way to supply your cat with necessary hydration. Plus, s/he will love the variety of tasty ingredients, like cage-free chicken, wild-caught tuna and wild-caught mackerel!

Don’t forget that Webster, Rudi & Vanessa approved everything!

  • Contains taurine which helps guards the heart and added vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet.
  • Recipe contains no grains, gluten, potatoes, GMO ingredients, MSG or carrageenan, so it’s great for cat with allergies.
  • Variety of delicious flavors help to entice picky eaters with real, deboned meat in a luscious gravy.DSC_0224

Did you guess we would be doing reviews this week? I thought I gave a big hint when I did last Sunday’s selfie in the box…. and yes, I got first dibs on it this month…. Obviously, gifting Mr. M a very special box for Christmas had side benefits.

M41. I would like to ask_politicians why they don’t seem to listen to each other… why they seem to act like things are totally good or totally bad. In my purrsonal experience, very few things are completely good or bad and the best choices can be made if one listens, makes sure they understand the complete situation, then find a good compromise.

Thankful Thursday – Trust

P1180764Dear Furiends,

Living in this multi-species household, I think trust is important. Having someone you trust is something to be thankful for. That is why this post is purrticipating in Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have been hearing that word for months, mainly as it pertains to dogs and how their trust is unconditional… I can not abide the thought of a dog being better than a cat at something.th

Adrian Savage wrote an article that said, “Trust is fundamental to life. If you cannot trust in anything or anyone, life becomes a constant battle against paranoia and looming disaster. You can’t have relationships without trust, let alone good ones. Intimacy depends on it. I suspect more marriages are wrecked by lack of trust than by actual infidelity. The partner who can’t trust the other not to betray him or her will either drive them away or force them into some real or assumed act of faithlessness.”

Meow is me, this is more important than I imagined… how did dogs figure this out?!?

As per Google, one very interesting aspect of trust is that it can either be a noun or verb.

noun (in the sense of how I’m using it): trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.

“good relationships are built on trust”

synonyms: confidence, belief, faith, certainty, assurance, conviction, credence; reliance

antonyms: distrust, mistrust, doubt

verb: believe in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of.

“I should never have trusted her”

synonyms: rely on, depend on, bank on, count on, be sure of… I hear this on the news, ie: “can he be trusted to carry out an impartial investigation?th-2

So, I am also thankful that I realize earning trust is valuable.… and apparently, it must be earned, though often, in the beginning, it is an act of faith and if one wants to establish trust, they need to take the first step. As per the news, I’ve I’ve discovered a couple individuals who try to show both sides and are dedicated to reporting the truth instead of spew emotional verbiage that seems to be based on questionable sources and information. I’m sure Mr. Hannity and Ms. Ingram aren’t the only trustworthy ones who verify information and strive for objectivity, but I haven’t had the time to research all reporters and/or news programs…. and the humans seem to think THEY are in charge of the remote control…

Getting back to why I believe trust is important... Adrian Savage concluded his thoughts by saying, “It takes a conscious act of unconditional belief in that other person’s good sense, ability, honesty or sense of commitment to set the ball rolling. Will your trust sometimes be misplaced? Of course. Life isn’t perfect and some people aren’t trustworthy. But will increasing your willingness to trust produce, on balance, a positive benefit? Will it make your life more pleasant and less stressful? I believe so. You have little to lose by trying.”th-1

I shall begin by trusting Purrseidon to keep her promise and not to mess with my silvervine.
