World’s Best Cat Litter Giveaway – Win a Year’s Worth of Litter

I don’t use World’s Best, but in case you do, I thought I’d pass along this contest.  World’s Best Cat Litter has teamed up with PetFlow.com to offer a summer contest where you can win a year’s worth of World’s Best Cat Litter.  It’s the cat litter that’s made from corn.  I’ve heard that it’s really lightweight.

Here’s a link to enter the contest: http://www.worldsbestcatlitter.com/simplifygiveaway/

Win a Joe Jacket Reusable Coffee Cup and Beverage Sleeve

Joe Jacket ReviewIt seems fitting that I’m writing this post while sitting in a coffee shop. Of course, I’ve got my reusable travel mug beside me. And it’s the reason why I originally declined an offer from Joe Jacket to review their reusable beverage sleeve. However, when they asked again, I suggested I would give it to a friend to try out and they sent me one of their adorable Pet Couture sleeves with a darling kitty print.

The Joe Jacket is a reusable beverage sleeve that comes in a cat or paw-print design. It’s made out of neoprene, which helps to insulate hot cups, ceramic and steel tumblers, and cold drinks, including plastic tumblers and sports drinks. Using a reusable sleeve can help save our landfills from billions of pounds of trash from traditional throw away paper cup sleeves.

I have something to confess. I kept the sleeve and I’ll tell you why. Right after I said I didn’t need one, I found myself at the coffee shop twice in a month, needing a tea, but I had forgotten my travel mug. Let’s face it, that big steel tumbler is not the most convenient thing to tote around. Luckily, I had my Joe Jacket reusable sleeve handy. It’s small and stores flat, so it fits easily into a glove box, a purse or the pouch of a backpack.

When I used the sleeve for the first time, the barrista exclaimed, “Oh it has cats on it!” Yes, the sleeve is THAT cute — and now you have a chance to win one!

Winners of Prowl Cat Food Samples and the Pet Food Cookbook

prowlCongratulations to the winners of the Prowl Sample giveaway.  Ten lucky cats each won a sample pack of Prowl dehydrated raw cat food from The Honest Kitchen.

Our winners included cats living in Georgia, Nevada, New York, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida.

And, a cat mommy from New York is the winner of the new pet food cookbook, Made out of Love, written by Lucy Postins, co-founder of The Honest Kitchen.

The Honest Kitchen uses only human-grade ingredients to make pet food for both cats and dogs.  They’re a family owned company located near Downtown San Diego.  They have a pet-friendly office with up to seven dogs visiting each day. The dogs love going in to the office to do taste tests of course.  And, cats are no strangers to taste tests either.

Harry, the first office feline at The Honest Kitchen, is the chief R&D officer when it comes to cat food.  Harry was rescued by Laurette, the Director of Operations.  She found him during a store visit and had to smuggle him into the hotel and then buy new flights to get home, because the airline she booked didn’t allow pets.  Harry arrived with skin issues, and after having his say in what went into Prowl, is now healthy and happy.  Here’s a picture of Harry.

Win Dehydrated, Raw, Human-Grade Cat Food and a Pet Food Cookbook!

prowlThere seems to be a growing trend to feed pets raw meat as opposed to processed pellets. I can’t speak to the benefits myself, but have heard from a few readers who swear that their cats’ health improved dramatically on a raw meat diet. Here’s a chance to win dehydrated, raw, human-grade cat food. Bet you never thought you’d see that in a giveaway!

If you’re not chopping raw meat for your cat yourself, the most common option is to buy prepared raw cat food in frozen format. I always thought this was rather inconvenient. How do you chisel off just enough off of a polenta-sized frozen sausage to feed your cat? Don’t you have to thaw it and then leave a batch sitting in your fridge? Also, I wouldn’t want to give my cat icy cold food to eat. If these types of questions have run through your mind about feeding your cat a raw meat diet, then Prowl, a dehydrated raw cat food made by The Honest Kitchen might be just what you’re looking for.

Prowl is a natural grain-free cat food that’s high in protein and contains only 9 ingredients plus added vitamins and minerals. And, you can pronounce all of them! Check out this list, which reads like Thanksgiving dinner:

  • Free-range chicken that’s 100% sustainably-farmed in Petaluma, California, humanely raised and vegetarian fed without the use of animal fat or by-products or antibiotic
  • Eggs
  • Potatoes
  • Yams
  • Organic flaxseed
  • Zucchini
  • Spinach
  • Cranberries
  • Rosemary

Prowl might also be just the high protein diet you’re looking for if your cat has struvite crystals. According to Lucy Postins, co-founder of The Honest Kitchen:

“Our foods are generally well suited to pets who are prone to urinary stones and crystals, because after re-hydration, they are high moisture diets and the increased fluid intake is recommended by holistic vets, to help keep the urinary trace ‘flushed out’. It is also possible to add a natural supplement to the food to help combat stones and crystals and help to reduce the risk of further blockages occurring.”

Lucy goes on to say that, “It’s important to know which type of crystals your cat is prone to in order to make a recommendation on the supplement. It’s critical to know this info because the two main types of crystals thrive in opposite pH environment, so using the wrong supplement could actually exacerbate the condition.” She recommended consulting with your veterinarian for this information.

If I didn’t have a small baby who likes to stick stuff in his mouth all the time, I’d give serious consideration to trying Prowl for Furball to help him manage his struvite crystals. I like the idea of how convenient it would be to simply add room temperature water to the food and allow it to hydrate rather than having to thaw frozen bricks of raw cat food in my fridge. I also like that since Prowl is dehydrated, it’s light and easy to transport, making it much greener than frozen raw cat food.

If you’d like to try Prowl, The Honest Kitchen is generously offering sample packs of Prowl for our Dehydrated, Raw, Human-Grade Cat Food Giveaway.  What a mouthful to write. There are 10 sample packs available to win, so 10 lucky winners will each get a sample pack of Prowl.  Those are some pretty good odds.  Plus, one of the 10 winners will also win Lucy’s first cookbook for pets called, Made out of Love: Recipes to prepare for (and sometimes share with) your animal companion.  Made out of Love includes nourishing recipes for toppings, treats, main dishes, raw, and functional cuisines that pet owners can make for their four-legged friends at home.

Winners of the Really Really Big Natural Cat Food Giveaway

Congrats to the winners of our Really Really Big Natural Cat Food Giveaway.  The prize was a variety pack of cat food from Natura Pet Products featuring their EVO, Innova and California Natural brands.

Congratulations to our winners:

1. Kitty and Piggles, AL

Kitty is a two year old, female, and enjoys playing with toilet paper tubes!  She’s a cat after my own heart as this is a great way to be green.  I’ve invented a couple of toilet paper roll toys for my book Make Your Own Cat Toys.  Piggles, as her name suggests, is a little pig and she LOVES to eat.  Sounds just like Furball!

2. Smoochie and Meeper, MO

Smoochie is an 8 year-old who will only drink water if it’s warm.  He sleeps on his Mommy’s pillow every night.  Meeper is 2 years old and got his name from the funny meeping-like noise he made as a kitten.

3. Blixa, CA

Blixa is a 5 year-old, black and white, long-haired, forest kind of cat. He makes his owners laugh because he meows A LOT and isn’t terribly graceful.  He was adopted, just like Furball!

I’ve got a few other giveaways in the works, so if you’d like to keep in the loop, please join my mailing list (big green box in the right column).  I promise not to spam you — you’ll get an email once a month or less.  That I can guarantee as I don’t have time to send one more often!  You can also unsubscribe easily any time you like.
