July in Christmas

So you ever seen those commercials in the summer when they say they is having a Christmas in July sale? Well, guess what, I just got July in Christmas!

We've had a lot and I mean A LOT of packages delivered to the house. Mom does all her holiday shopping online. Between that and the last package being for the kitties, not me (boo!), I didn't really pay any attention to the mail yesterday. Until mom said: Look Anna! A package for you!

I was like, what??

So mom did open it for me and I read the card.

It did be a gift from Noodles! I had won a wacky hat contest back in July. This is was awesome timing on Noodles part, since I didn't receive my monthly Chewy surprise. So way to go Noodles! Now, on the the presents!

Check out this swag! Swag I don't have to share with kitties (in fact, mom shooed THEM out of the house so Winston wouldn't try to eat my stuffs!)

Check out these pawsome, homemade doggie treats! NOM! Wait, what's behind me...oh that do be Duncan sniffing the noms. He may be deaf, but his snooter knows good noms when he sniffs them.

So, I does share with the old man. I don't know if he actually even tasted them...

I did....they were delicious! Props to the chef!

Then I played with the squeaky bone!

It was fun! The BP even threw it around for me! Thanks Noodles! It was a great, and delicious surprise!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May it be filled with love, laughter and delicious noms!

Chewy Kitty--No Cubelets

So our Chewy.com item for review came in! Yay! But, what the what...mom said it was for the kitties?!?! I feel so betrayed! And if that wasn't bad enough, I was shooed out the door so mom could let the kitties try out the item. Humph. Santa better make up for this, and this better not happen again---I'm looking at you Mom and the (nice) peoples at Chewy that allowed this slip of insanity to happen.

Oh well, here it is. Mom chose the Wellness Divine Duos kitty noms. These feature a Chicken Pate and Diced Duck cubes. It's all real ingredients and Mom was so happy to see that this meaty, wet kitty nom did not have the nasty ingredient carrageean in it. Mom learned all about it when Simon got older and sickly. It's very bad for kitties,can cause inflammation, intestinal cancers, bad poops (which is what we think ended up taking Simon from us) and so on.

It is very common in wet foods (even people foods, so watch out!) to make it gelatin like, and trust us, it's hard to find a wet food that DOESN'T have this stuff in it. Mom read labels after labels after labels and it was hard to find. So, she was so happy to see it wasn't in this kitty nom.

I think Winston knew this was just for him!

Initial Winston reaction: He was all over it! But then he kinda slowed down, and took his time to nom it up. Which mom liked. But then we noticed something...

He ate the Pate stuff, but wasn't into the cubes. In fact, he kinda played with them. Winston, stop playing with your food!!

Winston says: I gives it 2 out of four paws, I'd give it three if it was just the mushy pate stuff, I don't think I'm down with the cubelets.

So then it was on to Mia to try this out.

Mia was being a diva and insisted that her food be served to her by the light of the Christmas tree. Ugh, kitties.

Mia nommed nice and slow. But guess what she did....

Yep, she left the cubelets too. So, I guess there you have it folks. Kitties are picky, whereas Duncan and I would have just inhaled it all. Final verdict: 2 of 2 kitties agree, pate only, no cubelets.

Crying over a White Christmas

Last night mom was moving groceries in and this happened....

Mom was close to crying (That's $6 organic whole cow juice on the floor....)

While Winston and Duncan thought it was the most magical, exciting Christmas gift ev-er! Sigh, I guess we did have a White Christmas after all!

Tis the Season

It's that time of year again, when mom and dad go a little bonkers and bring a tree in the house!

Saturday, after the Turkey Day nomming, they put a tree in the house. It's a new tree, since out old one was like 10 years old and had some lights out and stuffs. Anyhoo, I was all "Here we go again" time to take a nap:

 While the two youngest members of the family, Bald Puppy and Winston, were all:


Winston do think it's like the best thing effers. He can be inside with the tree even while it's rainy or whatnot. He acts like no one can see him under there, but we don't has the heart to tell him, he isn't exactly camo-flaged under the tree....

The BP likes to look at the ornaments, but now he's a little more used to it and not all up in it like he was at first...which is a good thing. 

Also this year, dad did put up lights outside the house. Okay, even I have to admit, this is pretty cool. Santa Paws will be sure to find us and all our Christmas Spirit!!
