Selfies with Santa

Gus:  The Mama has really been slacking!  She hasn't even introduced you to the Caribbean kittens yet.  They've been with us since mid-October.  I think they had every parasite possible when we first got them - coccidia, giardia, tape warms.  Yuck!  Unfortunately, we lost 3 of the kittens.  Their small bodies just couldn't handle all those foreign invaders.  Five kittens are still with us as well as their mom.  The kittens went to visit Santa today. They wanted to share their selfies with Santa with you.

Do you know what all the kittens asked Santa for Christmas?  A loving home!  They will be available for adoption at Great Plains SPCA's Merriam campus in a couple weeks.

Mercedes - On the Road to a Forever Family

Gus:  We would like to introduce you to our new foster - Mercedes!

Mercedes was thrown out of a moving car.

Someone rolled down their window and just tossed her out.

 Can you believe that?

 I just don't understand humans some times!

Luckily, a Good Samaritan saw this happen and stopped to help her.

They took her to Great Plains SPCA where the vet staff checked her out.

She was very fortunate she wasn't hurt.

The shelter called us to see if we would accept her as a student.  Of course, we said yes!

For her first Sunday Selfie Blog Hop, the Mama wanted to do one of those cute baby photo-shoots.

 You can see how well that turned out.

To say Mercedes is an active kitten is a bit of an understatement.

The Mama swears she never sleeps!

It just shows you what a fighter she is!

With all that "tortitude", she's going to keep fighting until she finds her forever family!

Help us welcome, Mercedes!

Update on the Beatles Kittens:  All the kittens except George have been adopted!  Paula and Ringo even went home together.  Have a great life, John, Paula and Ringo!  George, you'll find your family soon.  Hang in there, buddy!

Can't Buy Me Love

The Beatles Kittens are now available for adoption!  They are at the adoption center at Great Plains SPCA in Merriam.


They weren't very excited about it but having some wet food made it better, at least temporarily.  Hopefully, they will be adopted quickly!


The Beatles Kittens would like to remind you that you can't buy love but you can adopt it!

Back to School

In honor of the little humans everywhere going back to school, we pulled out our pencil and school bus toys for this week's Sunday Selfies.



John

Ringo

George

Paula


That's right, the Beatles Kittens are STILL with us. They had their second FIV tests on Thursday.  Two of them passed (they are FIV negative).  We are still waiting on the results for the other two.  We hope they pass too so that these guys can graduate to their forever families.  No, we REALLY can't wait for them to graduate!!!!   They are like rowdy teenagers.  They no longer pay attention in class.  I don't know what we are going to do with them!  Please purr that they all pass their tests soon.

Oh My Gravy! Weruva BFF OMG! 'People Food for Cats'

Gus:  With International Cat Day happening on August 8, and Happy Healthy Cat Month in September, now is the perfect time to address the 'cat in the room'—and that's your feline friend's diet. I'll be the first to admit my own diet isn't 'purr'fect.  I only like fresh running water.  As a result, I'm not nearly as hydrated as I need to be.  This can lead to urinary tract issues.. I struggled to understand how I could address this issue. After all, the Mama won't leave the faucet on all the time.  But then I realized I wasn't alone—I was just experiencing one of the three most common cat concerns: picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues. 

I learned about the Big 3 by partnering with Weruva —a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed "people food for cats" which is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day. It's called B.F.F. OMG! (that stands for Best Feline Friend, Oh My Gravy), and it's all about preventing these Big 3 Cat Concerns.


If your cat has any of these, you might want to consider changing their diet: 
>> Is your cat picky? Picky eating is usually a problem with texture, since cats are carnivores whose tongues and teeth are perfectly evolved for meat-eating. It's easy to see why a cat might dislike something without real shreds of meat—would you eat a steak with the texture of tapioca? Weruva's food features these shreds of real meat right off the bone, which is why I cat took to it like a duck to water (or a cat to gravy)!
>> Got a fat cat? The problem is in the kibble. It's filled with unnecessary carbs, which are almost impossible for cats to process (they don't produce amylase, an enzyme which helps humans digest their food). Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! has no kibble to worry about because it’s 100% real meats in their true form. 
.
>> UT-why? Urinary tract issues often stem from dehydration—even if you're giving your cat plenty of water. In the wild, cats stay hydrated through the food they eat instead of what they drink. Cats are used to 'eating' their water—but most wet foods don't have nearly enough hydration to keep them satisfied. All of the products in Weruva's B.F.F. OMG! line are over 85% hydration, which satisfies my hydration needs.


I love Weruva products because they are considered ‘people food for pets.’ The new line of B.F.F. OMG! cans and pouches feature land proteins like boneless and skinless white chicken breast, salmon, beef, duck, lamb and more. All recipes are grain, gluten, and carrageenan free. And if you are a BPA-free home, check out the pouches because they are are BPA-free. Best of all, the Beatles Kittens and I love it!



Weruva sent us a BFF OMG bundle.  It included some Skittles and sticker for the Mama and a couple toys and delicious food for us kitties to try. 


Health isn't just for humans, and I'm glad I took the time to learn how to eat healthy. Even better, in the process, I found a great new food. I don't have a favorite flavor, but you can read about them all at http://www.weruva.com/. You can also explore the whole B.F.F. OMG! lineup there, and find a flavor your cat will 'paw'sitively adore, at Chewy.com
