Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food

IMG_20170713_234516Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food is made in the United States and is grain-Free, gluten free.  As you might have figured out by the name, this cat food is chunks of freeze-dried meat. (Though they offer other flavors, we suspect we were given salmon and chicken because Chewy knows my favorite food is salmon and Mr. M loves chicken.) Chewy and Stella believe that pets thrive on  diet they would naturally eat, and they made this with 98% cage-free poultry and wild-caught salmon plus 100% certified-organic fruits and vegetables. I, for one, love vegetables, particularly broccoli, but Mr. M prefers meat.

Prior to rehydrating.

Mr. M and I believe that Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food would also be a good in your emergency bug-out bag because it is lightweight and easy to rehydrate by adding warm (NOT HOT) water. It is simple: you mix the proper amount of water with the food and let set for a minute then stir … it is much lighter then cans.

 As you can see, the chucks turn into a pate, which is easier to eat if you’re a senior cat with dental issues.IMG_20170714_170200IMG_20170713_233506

Did you know that some veterinarians believe that raw feeding is   better for pets and state that pets that eat a natural diet have digestion, teeth, skin/coat and immune system?

Stella & Chewy said, “Please do not cook, heat, or microwave the products. If rehydrating, use cool or warm (never hot) water.”

Healing Power of Purrs

Dear Furiends,20170422_113156

There is healing power in purrs and if you follow this blog, you might know that many consider me to be an accomplished purr-therapist as well as a writer’s muse. According to  blog.petflow.com, “If a kitty is a part of your family, then you are 40% less likely to have a heart attack.”   (If the kitty is Purrsideon, this might be because you are getting a lot of cardio exercise trying to keep up with a furball who seems capable at moving at Mach speed.) Fortunately for the staff, I am a calming influence, who can purr away their stress.

Petflow posted a fascinating infographic on why purring heals. (you will notice that it focuses on a cat’s purr, not one’s athletic ability – or lack thereof – to keep up with a kitten). Thus, as a purr-therapist, my purrs lower stress and reduce the risk of heart attacks as well as lower blood pressure. Purring also heals infection/swelling, and helps mend everything from torn tendons to broken bones.

Owl Wings Could Help Make Quieter Aircraft

Owl’s flight is almost inaudible, and their wings are designed in such a way that they generate a lot of lift with very little flapping. Now, scientists from Chiba University in Japan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China have revealed how inspiration from owls’ wings could help make quieter wind turbines, aircraft, and drones.…

Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics

received_10213160797323781Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics is Halo’s doing very first Chewy review, so please pardon him for not knowing how to pose for the camera or eat in a tidy manner…. in fact, he wouldn’t eat out of the bowl and insisted on rolling the bowl around in a big circle before taking a bite…received_10213160797203778

These pellets combine essential fiber and nutrients for both adult and juvenile bunnies, but is not intended for growing, active, pregnant or nursing rabbits. (While adult bunnies still need a lot of fiber for proper digestion,but  they don’t need as much as growing rabbits. However, they grow so quickly, that a food for both ages is a major bonus).  Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics is made in the United State from timothy grass hay and contains optimum protein and calcium-to-phosphorous levels.received_10213160799723841

Note: To transition your rabbit to his new food, gradually replace his current food with the new food over a four-week time period to prevent digestive issues and finicky eating patterns.received_10213160796883770

 

(Purrseidon and Saphera both perked up when the Chewy box arrived and they were both ready and willing to do taste tests … until the bag was opened, then Purr left, but Saphera remained hopeful.)received_10213160798243804
