We Got Tuna!

We never get to eat fish in our household because Truffle has had violent reactions to any type of food that had herring in it and Mom Paula had always heard bad things about feeding too much tuna, so we've pretty much been on the "feather" diet (turkey, fish, and duck).  However, we were given the opportunity by chewy.com to review BFF (Best Feline Friend) and all of their flavor pouches contain tuna.

BFF is produced in a facility that also produces food for people.  The factory operates at international human food processing standards, including that of the super-strict British Retail Consortium (BRC) and the pet processing must pass BRC scrutiny.
Truffle is a little impatient because the bowls are empty

The main ingredient is a red meat or dark meat from tuna, primarily skipjack or bonito, two smaller and highly sustainable species.  The cuts contain lean muscle meat and have a taste aroma that drives kitties wild!  Included along with the tuna are value added toppers such as boneless skinless chicken breast, duck, lamb, salmon, shrimp and pumpkin.  The specific recipes sold on the chewy.com website are:  tuna and chicken charm me, tuna and duck devour me, tuna and salmon sweet cheeks, tuna and turkey tickles, tuna and lamb luv ya, and tuna and beef baby cakes.  We received the BFF tuna and beef baby cakes to sample.

Additional information from chewy.com about the BFF pouches are the Key Benefits:
  • Delicious flavor cats can't resist
  • Convenient pouches are easy to open
  • Grain-free formula, a common allergy trigger for cats
  • Taurine guards the heart
  • Approximately 60 calories per pouch
  • Can be served as a standalone diet or as a topper for dry food
Brulee LOVES this food!

Many of you know that Brulee is very finicky about her food.  She usually has to be coaxed to the bowl to eat her stinky goodness, with Mom Paula sometimes tempting her with a few sprinkles of freeze-dried chicken on top.  None of that was needed for the BFF Tuna and Beef Baby Cakes. Brulee went right to the bowl and immediately began eating.  She even cleaned her plate.  Well almost . . . Truffle finished the few remaining morsals.  Some additional information from BFF is that all of the fish used in the recipes is wild caught, with the exception of tilapia.  The catches of fish are also certified to have been safe for dolphins and turtles, as certified by the ship's captains.   
Truffle ate all of her food and finished up the few remaining morsels in  Brulee's bowl.

The BFF pouches are currently on sale for $10.99 for 12 pouches at chewy.com.  We would definitely try some of the other flavors since we like turkey, duck, and chicken.  The BFF cat food pouches are made by the parent company, Weruva, and we LOVE that food and have been eating it for quite a while.  Mom Paula talked to the vet about us eating tuna and she said it was okay as long as it wasn't our main diet.  We were pleased with that because we really, really, really did like this food.  Mom Paula says we'll probably get to eat one serving a week, mixed in among our feather diet (and our new favorite:  rabbit).

As always, we really support chewy.com.  They have the largest variety of cat food and treats and they are reasonably priced when you buy in bulk.  We sometimes with they would sell individual cans so we could try out the different flavors before buying cases.  Chewy.com offers free 2-day shipping for orders over $49.  They've been nothing but nice to us and we'll continue to buy products from them online (when we have the green papers) and recommend them to others.
We're still eating this delicious food!

We received the BFF cat pouches free from chew.com and were not compensated for our review.  Our opinions are our own and we stand by them.  Now, back to our food...

Pee ess - We didn't have a video this time because we attacked this food so fast, there was no time to switch cameras.  That should tell you how delicious this food was.

Something's Missing

We know! We know!  There's something wrong about us sitting on top of the PTU, but we love to survey our domain from here.  There's something missing in our home.  Can you tell what it is?


Stay tuned for the developing story . . .

Brulee's New Bed

Remember yesterday when Brulee was playing on the "old" mattress.  Well, last night, Mom Paula had a new mattress delivered and to our surprise, she also put on new sheets and a comforter.  Just as soon as the bed was made, Brulee immediately jumped on the bed and parked herself right in the center.

Mom Paula left for a few hours to run some errands with Grandma Faye and when she got back home 3 hours later, Truffle met her at the door but not Brulee.  Mom Paula went searching for Brulee and she was still laying in the middle of her new bed.  I guess Brulee has claimed the bed as her own.

We'll let  you know later how well it slept (and if Mom Paula likes it).

Friday at the Movies: Flashback Friday

We wanted to share this video today because we're saying goodbye to our pillow top mattress that we've enjoyed for 3 years.  A new one is arriving this afternoon and we hear it conforms to our bodies.  Hmmmmm.  We're not so sure we're going to like that.  Bye mattress.  You were well loved.

Sandstorm is Coming!

All of you who know us, know that Mom Paula is a huge South Carolina Gamecock fan!  Today is the first game of the season and it's the first college football game for the nation tonight at 6:00 pm.  Of course, Mom Paula will be there.  Brûlée is little worried about the predicted "sandstorm" and hopes Mom Paula will be okay since she sits in the bottom of that big stadium (see circle and arrow)

Truffle tries to calm Brûlée by telling her that Sandstorm is a musical number that is played in the stadium to "rile up" the Gamecock fans. (Brûlée still isn't so sure because that looks like a big cloud of sand ). They start waving white towels in the air and jump up and down.  The stadium really gets pretty loud during this storm.  The Gamecocks haven't lost a home game the past two years and we hope this tradition continues.

Brulee's 3rd Birthday

Brulee is 3 years old today!  We remember this time 3 years ago when only 4 short days after little Beignet went to the bridge, Truffle's half sister was born.  Mom Paula had no idea that there were kittens scheduled to be born when we lost Beignet, so imagine her surprise when Mom Terri told her that there were some more kittens coming and Truffle could have a little sister.

Who could believe this little dark haired cutie . . .
Brulee - 5 days old

would turn into this silver haired beauty?
Brulee - 3 years old

Pee ess - don't tell Brulee, but she has a vet appointment today!
