Sunday Selfie

It's Super Bowl Sunday and guess what that means?  It's time for the Kitten Bowl!  We got you, didn't we?  The Kitten Bowl begins at noon today on your local Hallmark Channel.  Mom Paula will still be away (she plays the piano for church), so we've set our DVR to record it.  Who doesn't want to spend the afternoon watching cute kittens playing?!?  For our Sunday Selfie today, we made our own Kitten Bowl Cat-lete cards and used photos from when we were kittens!  We hope all of the kittens in the Kitten Bowl and those in the real world get adopted and have a wonderful forever home soon.

Caturday Art

We're still playing with the Super Photo App on our computer.  This time we let Brulee pose and put her in a framed cube.  There's a little psychedelic background with the cube which reminds Mom Paula of her time in the 60's with the Beatles.  Did we just give away her age?

Strutting into the Weekend

Truffle is so happy it's the weekend because that means it's time to relax and have fun with Mom Paula.  We're hoping she is finally going to feel better so she can play with us.  In the meantime, let's strut into the weekend with Truffle.
Truffle:  Weekend, here I come!

Throwback Thursday

Brulee wanted to share a photo of her at six months old from 2012.  There's something about cats and sinks.  Although, they don't get in the sinks anymore as adults.  How would you like to walk in your bathroom and see this in the sink?


Mom Paula:  Mom Paula went back to the doctor yesterday and is now having pains in her abdomen. She's been sick for a month now.  Please send purrs!  We miss our fun Mom!

Groundhog Day

We don't know what that ole' groundhog is going to see today, but we know we don't want any of the cold, white stuff down here in South Carolina.


We rarely have snow in South Carolina, especially from the midlands to the coast.  When we realized today was Groundhog Day, we had to go back into our archives from January 2014 when we saw our first snow ever and we'll be five  years old this summer.  Don't you just love the big eyes when we see the ground looking like us?

Update:  Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning, so it looks like we will get an early spring. Anyone else ready for warmer weather? https://goo.gl/CHtlEu.

Biologically Appropriate Cat Treats #sponsored

Disclaimer:  As a member of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, We received this product in exchange for our fair and honest review.  We received no compensation for this review.  Chewy is not responsible for the contents of this post.  We only share products that we believe in.

We LOVE treats!  Anyone who follows our blog knows that we are definitely spoiled when it comes to getting those special treats in between meals.  However, Mom Paula is very picky on what type of treats she'll let us eat.  We were pleased to be sent the Orijen Original Freeze Dried Cat treats from Chewy.com to sample as part of the Blogger Outreach Program.

Orijen Original Freeze-Dried Cat Treats feature a symphony of cage-free chicken and turkey plus wild-caught flounder from North Vancouver Island. Each of these ingredients is delivered from local sources in fresh Whole Prey ratios so you can indulge and nourish your cat at the same time. Made without cooking or preservatives, Orijen's Biologically Appropriate treats are gently freeze-dried to lock in the life-giving goodness and flavors of fresh and regional ingredients for a reward your cat will truly love.


Cats are built like their ancestors and Orijen believes cats should eat like them too. The Biologically Appropriate™ concept is simple.  Mirros the richness, freshness, and variety of meats that cats would normally hunt in the wild and for which they are evolved to eat.  The five Biologically Appropriate Principles are:

  1. Rich in Meat
  2. Meat Diversity
  3. Meat Freshness
  4. Low Carbohydrate, Low Glycemic
  5. Whole Fruits, Vegetables, and Botanicals


There are five varieties of the Orijen Freeze Dried Cats treats available at Chewy.com and are currently on sale from $6.49 - 7.79.  We'll definitely try the other flavors with our next Chewy order because these things are so delicious.  You'll find excellent customer service with Chewy and can get free expedited shipping when you order $49+.

Caturday Art

We've read about the new app for Windows called Super Photo and we had to try it.  We liked this photo of Brulee but it was a little fuzzy because of the bad light, so we cropped it and use the "stained glass" effect and loved how it turned out!  Mom Paula says if she was creative and knew how to do stained glass that she would make this!

Those Were The Days

We went back in the archives to January 2012, when we were kittens, to find this adorable photo. Truffle and Brulee really haven't had any major problems with each other, except for the first day Brulee came to live with us.  Brulee has never shown any fear of Truffle and would give back as much as Truffle gave her.  They were also adorable because they used to cuddle up together.  They don't do it anymore, but photos like this are just too cute to forget.

Truffle still tends to groom Brulee, even as adults.  The grooming session usually ends with a little smack down, but it's adorable while they are doing it.

Meet Our New Cousin - Fred

We have a new kitty cousin and we'd like to introduce him to you today!  Fred came to live with Mom Paula's nephew, Russell, and his beautiful family during the holidays.  Russell is Mom Paula's nephew who suffered a stroke in December that so many of you purred and purrayed for.  He's doing wonderful and the doctors expect a full recovery.  When he got out of the hospital and the rehab center, Fred came to live with them.
Meet Fred

Fred is about 16 weeks old and was adopted from the local PetSmart in Anderson, SC.  Fred was rescued from a dumpster, where someone left him, as a wee little kitten.  He was bottle-fed by his rescuers.
Fred's wonderful markings on his back

Mom Paula's little great niece, Zoey, who is 3 years old, named Fred.  Fred is very loving and has extremely high energy.  Mom Paula asked for photos of Fred with Zoey, but he said neither of them sit still long enough.  Russell said that Fred likes to caress your face and groom you.
Fred sat still long enough for this photo

Mom Paula took a kitty-care package to Russell for Fred during the holidays.  There were lots of toys and a water fountain.  We didn't have any kitten food, so we couldn't send any of our new samples we've received for review.  Russell says that Fred loves his toys.  He said Fred also drooled when he was happy!  The interesting thing about Fred is that he enjoys jumping in the bath with them.  We know Russell will be a great human dad to Fred and teach Zoey how to treat kitties.  Mom Paula has this special photo of Russell with Sweet Praline when she was a kitten back in 1995.
Russell and Sweet Praline - 1995

Mom Paula can't wait to meet Fred!  She'll be sure to take her camera and get more photos.  Welcome to our family, Fred!  Mom Paula got sneaky and swiped this photo off of Facebook that shows Russell, Zoey, and Fred resting peacefully at home.

We've Got Lamb!

As part of the Chewy Blogger Outreach Network, we were allowed to try the ZiwiPeak canned cat food this month.  We'd never heard of this food, but were very anxious to try it because there were a lot of varieties of protein we weren't used to eating.

Truffle enjoying the ZiwiPeak Daily Cat Cuisine Lamb canned food

We received the ZiwiPeak Daily Cat Cuisine Lamb Canned Cat Food to review.  ZiwiPeak Cat food is made with fresh, natural, raw meat and organs.  There are no artificial additives, preservatives, fillers, or grains.  All of the food comes from the cleanest, greenest New Zealand pastures and oceans.  ZiwiPeak says that there food is as close as you can come to feeding a raw, natural, wild-prey diet for cats without freezing and thawing.   We haven't had any products with lamb before, so Mom Paula was anxious to see if we'd eat it.  As you know, Truffle will eat almost anything and Brulee is the picky eater.  All Mom Paula had to do was to put the food on our plates and both of us immediately began eating.  Mom Paula was very impressed because Brulee doesn't usually like "chunky" canned food.
Both Brulee and Truffle loved the lamb formula

All ZiwiPeak pet food (lamb, venison, beef, and rabbit products) are sourced from New Zealand animals and approved, traceable farms in New Zealand.  The farms are committed to freely pastured grass-feeding and they use no antibiotics, hormones, or growth promotants. ZiwiPeak only uses real raw meat and organs.  There are a lot more details about how ZiwiPeak cat food is processed and how they guarantee it's safe for us kitties.  You can read about it on their website.


There are five different flavors of the ZiwiPeak canned food:  beef, lamb, venison, rabbit & lamb, and venison & fish.  We loved the lamb flavor, so we know the others must be delicious.  You can currently purchase a 12-pack of the lamb canned food for $32.99 (list price is $53.19) from Chewy.com.   This food may take a little longer to ship, but in our humble opinion, the taste and benefits are well worth it.  As always, shipping is free if the order is $49+.


FTC Disclosure: As part of the Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program, we received some ZiwiPeak Daily-Cat Cuisine Lamb Canned Cat Food for a fair and honest review. Receiving the food did not influence our opinion in any way.  All opinions expressed on Sweet Purrfections are our own.

Refreshing Drink

We've had pet fountains since the day we were born, so Mom Paula has made sure to have a variety of fountains at our house. One is in the bedroom, one is in the dining room beside a tall window, and one is on a table in front of the window.  We drink from all of them, but Truffle thinks there is something special about her garnet-colored Thirsty Cat Water Fountain.  This isn't a sponsored post, but we do love this fountain.
