Clean Tushees - Review and Giveaway

We kitties are known for taking lots of baths (all day long) to keep clean.  However, there are times that incidents occur to cause us to get a little dirtier than normal, which requires a bath.  We do not like baths!  Mom Paula says she needs to wear armor in order to give us a bath when we have a little accident or get dirty.  Imagine Mom Paula's relief to receive Quick Bath and Tushee Wipe Quick Bath wipes from International Veterinary Sciences.

The Quick Bath wipes are extra thick wipes that are formulated with effective cleaners that remove bacteria and odors from our skin.  They contain Vitamins A & E and Aloe Vera, which not only leaves us clean and shiny, but promotes an overall health skin and coat.  Quick Bath wipes are pH neutral and alcohol free.  One of the first things we noticed was how thick and large the wipes were.
The wipes are almost bigger than Truffle

The wipes are 5" x 10" in size and are pre-moistened.  The Quick Bath wipes come in separate formulas for cats and dogs and each package contains 10 wipes.  The cat wipes are safe for daily use on cats and other small animals.  The Quick Bath wipes can be used to remove loose dirt, dander, and hair or to freshen us up.  We have so much fur that we couldn't use them to give us a bath if we really got dirty, but they are great for when our faces get dirty from eating delicious stinky goodness or if we step into something we shouldn't.
Truffle can't believe this came from her tushee!

We also received the Tushee Wipe Quick Bath for dogs, cats, & other small animals.  The Tushee Wipe towels contain Aloe Vera, vitamin A, and vitamin E and are biodegradable.  These wipes are safe to use every day.  Since we do have lots of fur, we tend to get stuff stuck to our backsides.  The Tushee Wipe towels help neutralize anal fluid odors, reduce transfer of fecal matter, and eliminate bottom area pet stains.  We don't like anyone messing with our bottoms, but Truffle allowed Mom Paula to clean her tushee to show how well the wipes clean.  As you can see from the photo above, it did a great job.  Truffle refused to show her tushee to you!

The Quick Bath for Cats and Tushee Wipe Quick Bath wipes are made in the U.S.A, formulated and packaged in state-of-the-art pharmaceutical FDA & GMP certified facilities in order to achieve the highest standards.  Each product from International Veterinary Sciences is veterinarian approved. The wipes are available at numerous pet supply companies and on Amazon and are reasonably priced. We highly recommend these wipes for those quick clean-ups when a full bath isn't needed.


International Veterinary Sciences is allowing us to host a giveaway to one of our lucky readers for a package of the Quick Bath Wipes and shampoo.  The giveaway is open to residents in the US (void where prohibited by law), ages 18+, no P.O. boxes, and ends February 19, 2016 at 11:59 ET.  To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below.  Good luck!

Throw Back Thursday

Don't you just love this photo of Truffle when she was 5 weeks old?  Truffle hadn't picked Mom Paula yet, but she was reaching out to her through this photo that Mom Terri sent her to say, "I'm yours."  Mom Paula had lost Sweet Praline two months earlier and was still depressed, but this photo brought some laughter and a smile to her heart so that she was ready to open it up to another fur child.  Two weeks later, Mom Paula visited and Truffle immediately picked her.  It was two more months before Truffle could come live with Mom Paula permanently, but the bond was already there!

If you're happy and you know it, say meow!

Move Over

Don't you just love the look on Brulee's face as Truffle tries to crowd her out of the small cat tree in the office.  Brulee loves to sleep in this tree right beside Mom Paula.  The funny thing is that there are two trees right beside each other and Truffle insists on crowding in with Brulee.  Sisters!

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.
Truffle -  13 weeks old

Brulee - 11 weeks old

Pee Ess - Mom Paula will be watching the Super Bowl tonight and pulling for the Panthers!

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?

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 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

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.
