Monday Munchies!

Kitties!

Like all of you, we LOVE to eat.  After Grayce had her bladder surgery, Mommy switched from feeding us kibble to an all wet food diet.  Then KonaKitty went on a hunger strike, and she got far too thin.  So Mommy started feeding her kibble separately in the bathroom.  Since Kona's a nibbler, she asked to go into the bathroom 56395637 times a day...and we all swarmed after her, raising a ruckus.  Naturally, we got a little kibble, too.

This drove Daddy crazypants.

He works from home and we were such insistent beggars asking so often for kibble that he avoided going down the hall to prevent stampedes!  Finally, one day he'd had enough.  He went to the store and bought two kibble feeders and a big bag of food.  We were in heaven!  We ate and ate and ate and eventually several of us barfed.  (You know how that goes.)  After a couple of days, we were back to eating mostly wet food and nibbling on the dry to fill in those nagging hungrumbly corners.  (You know how those are.)

Grayce, hurry up!

*mumblewaityourturncrunchcrunchcrunch*

Finally! 

 Mommy worried about us eating kibble, with all the grains and additives and inferior ingredients that's in most of it, but she didn't want Kona to waste away, either.  Or Daddy to go off the deep end.  So we got to keep our tower feeders.

Then, one day, we were reading the Responsible Pet Ownership blog, and we saw they had a newsletter--and if we signed up, we'd have a chance to win six months of free cat food from FELIDAE.  Guess what?  We signed up, and we WON!!!  We received vouchers for ninety pounds of kibble and Daddy filled up both our towers.

Kitties, this stuff is DELICIOUS!

We are eating the Pure Elements formula, and we love it.  Not one of us has barfed it up, and after a month our coats are looking nice and glossy.  Mommy is very pleased because we're getting quality nutrition.  

And we're happy too, because Mommy says this is what we'll be eating for dry food from now on.
And you can eat it for free, too...go visit the blog and sign up for a chance to win, woofies included!
Say, is it suppertime yet?

Happy Monday!

  1. WOW! What an amazing prize and I can't think of a crew of kitties who deserve it more!

    So happy for you!

    Is that food a limited ingredient type of food?

  4. Concatulations on winning all that food! The Woman laughed and said I am so finicky she could never try and win something unless it was what I already ate. And I think that is grand--after all that way I get what I want, don't I?

  5. How pawsome is that you won all those delicious kibbles! We think we need that food dispenser too! MOL.

  6. Now, see, THAT'S the kind of kibble dish I need! The Human's going to go check out that brand of fudz. She started buying me Wellness and Royal Canin and Science Diet and she mixes the three together. It took her awhile to wean me off the O.N.E. & the Friskies dry stuff, but I guess I am used to the new stuff now. I don't know why she needs to investigate something ELSE though. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  7. That is interesting that you guys started out overdoing it when you got hte tower feeders but then slowed down. And that new fudz sounds like great nutrition. We understand here about some kitties having to eat in the bathroom!

  8. What a coincidence - my human just came home with some of that Felidae Pure Elements in hope that I will eat some of it, since I am picky, too thin, and reject 90% of everything she gives me, wet or dry (the other two cats are pigs, they will eat any slop put in front of them, including the tasteless, boring grain-free canned stuff that's their daily fare). Hopefully this will work because my human is starting to go off the deep end, trying to keep up with my food demands.

  12. MOL your house is as nuts as ours! We're so glad you won those kibbles; it's only what you deserve.

    Guido has a dicky tummy. We thought it might be biscuits but it's probably not, then we though tuna, but probably not, and as the poop test was clear for known bugs etc we're trying retromad. Wish us luck!

  13. Those towers look impressive! As I'm still not absolutely sure what kibble is, I'll have to go google. Austin eats an all-in-one dry food from the grocery store, with some soft food in evening for moisture. He is VERY picky!

    ReplyDelete
  14. You lucky kitties, well done for winning, you deserve it!! Sookie and Darcy are most jealous as they are now on rations after poor Darcy was told by the vet that he was fat (for the vets information it's FLOOF!!). =^..^=

  16. Wow, that's fabulous! Concats on winning all the dry! We'd eat almost any kibble...okay, ANY kibble, the mom gave us. We LOVE kibble, but we get a paltry 1/4 cup per day, with the rest canned. She had tried for some time to limit us to 1/8 cup kibble per day (each), but we were driving her crazy for food. :-P

  17. OMC ! OMC ! Those towers feeder is Heaven !!!!! Look like All you can eat ! I love love it !!!! But I'm sure mom never get me that's one...Shame on mom !

    I feel sorry for my self, I miss a lots of good staff for free, just because I live in Australia. Even some friends tried to send me treats, but it was end up in the Mouth of Custom's woofies. We should move there !

    Mom said Mr. Johnny is very gentle mancat : )...Ladycat first !

  18. 90 pounds?! Wowiekazowie! That's huge!

    We're all over the place with our foods at the moment, now that Fui is on his limited ingredient diet that me and Suey wont eat. It's driving our mum crazypants, so we can certainly understand your dad's frustration!

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW! that is a great prize for a great family!!! I am so happy for you!!!!!!

  20. I just switched my cat to all canned diet also and have been wondering what canned food you feed your cats. MAN are you lucky to win this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That's wonderful. I loved the commentary.
    We are struggling with feedings since Hugo is here for awhile and diabetic. Today I pick up more of his food and I'll be buying some ORIJEN dry because it apparently is very low in carbs and if he does get hungry he can snack a little. I only put out a smidgen at a time. It's like a vet's office around here since Hugo gets readings and shots and Kanes' feet are being watched and pills given. Whew!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Our vet would like to see me on all wet food too, but she also said it's very hard to get a kitty off dry food when that is what they are used to. So, I get quite a bit of wet food with about a half a cup of kibble spread out throughout the day. I was getting barfsides tho until vet suggested d/d dry food (perscription diet by Hills). So no more barfsides, plus now I get wet and dry.

  30. We can just picture the stampede down the hall every time Daddy got up and headed in that directon!!!
    That is so great you guys won!!!

  31. Congrats on the win! Mom tried to feed us just twice a day and we hated it so she leaves out dry food for us nibblers. We get Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul - good stuff and not too pricey!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Congrats! That's a lot of food for your household. There's no way we could do the twice a day thing in our household. A few of the cats are demon eaters and would eat the other cats' portions. So instead we leave kibble out all the time. The ones who need special diets get fed separately.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I will have to check that out fur sure, we all love food here!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congrats on the win and getting better quality kibble. We know how complicated the feeding thing is dealing with individual needs. It's enough to drive any human crazypants!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yup, we have tried that food and it is good stuff. Conga rats on winning that food. Glad everyone likes it and you got your dry food back. We loves our dry food too. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is so great that you guys won all that food!! I'm going over there right now to check it out and enter their contest.

    I work from home too and I know all about being driven crazypants by these beggars.

    Thanks so much for the offer of some of your items for an auction. I'm definitely going to look into how to an auction.

    Hope all you guys are enjoying your day!

  37. Concats on winning alla dat food! It sounds like it is a good one for you! I love your food tower.

  38. tesla had to be on a special diet because she gets crystals- but it's a kibble diet, from the vets. Because she doesn't like eating all wet food all the time (and lets face it- it's expensive!) so , hansel has to eat it too. Because it's just too hard having everyone on different foods. BUT we would LOVE a kibble tower like that! but then we'd get too large and mom worries about diabetes! (can't afford that either!)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Bless your Daddy's little heart. He's a softie!
    Wow!! That's a lot of kibble to win. You guys deserve it for sure.

    I worry about all the things in our dry food too. We tried wellness and they turned up their noses at it.
    They're like little kids if it's got a fruit or vegetable in it they refuse to eat it.

    Happy Monday!

  40. OMC, we can't let Tinker see this post and those towers. Mommy knows how keeping on diets is extremely hard but for Tinker it is serious he only get wet food. We have to lock the pantry doors or he will pry them opened for dry food!! There are tons of teeth marks on the dry kitten food bag because someone did not lock the door after getting out human food.....we like that human, unfortunately Mom is always on watch for the slackers!=^Y^=

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, thats good info...mom is gonna upgrade to 7 cats next month and we are all gonna have to eat the same food so we'll go check it out!

  42. I was so happy that you won the FELIDAE food from the RPO blog, and even more delighted that the Horde loves it!! Thank you for giving the RPO blog a plug. We welcome ALL kitties and doggies to subscribe!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh...and the Pure Elements is a great choice! My cats eat this formula as well as the other Felidae grain free formula, Pure Sea with salmon. I'm told it's yummy though I've never been tempted to sample it myself, MOL.

    Concats on winning!

    ReplyDelete
  52. We laughed and laughed about you guys eating and eating then barfing up! We do that here too and it just drives our Cat Daddy all crazy pants! Especially when Piewhackits goes to try and eat the barf before he can get it cleaned up! Yup, he gets ALL crazy pants! We think it's sooooo funny ;-)

    We glad you guys won the food! We'll go check them out!
