Wordless Wednesday: Cats are ready to play baseball

Baseball is America’s favorite past-time, and with July fast approaching, Paws thought our kitties might like to play ball. The truth is, they prefer much smaller balls and cat toys to the larger baseball. They bat at them just like they were a home plate – sometimes even hitting a home run out of the living room. They chase just like being in the outfield, and needless to say they are awesome catchers. Sometimes they even pitch their toys to one of their fellow cats, and then they wrestle to see who gains control.

Do your cats play ball? Let’s imagine who they could rival if they were on the ball field. Weigh in with your comments on this Wordless Wednesday (even thought it’s Thursday), and share some fun comments.

Will kitty Lenny meet his cat mom in heaven?

Kitty Lenny stops to ponder about Father’s Day

Our kitties would tell their Dad these 5 things on Father’s Day[/caption]

Our kitties ponder 5 things they’d say to their dad this Father’s Day – that is if they knew who he was.

1) We wish we’d had a chance to know you, and if you’d gotten neutered, maybe you would have stuck around, and been a real Dad to us, instead of chasing tale for months on end.

2) We could have learned so much from you being a Dad. Mom was awesome, but it wasn’t the same as having a 2 cat parent family.

3) If only we knew our genetic history, we would be better prepared to know what kinds of illness we should work extra hard to prevent.

4) We would have had a male influence in our life, and learned a little bit more about what it’s like to be a Tom Cat.

5) Even though we never knew you, we really still love you, as kitties do. But we’re happy we had a great Momma Cat, and a fantastic human family who spoils us rotten and takes extra special care of us.

>What do you think your cats would say to their Dad this Father’s Day? Do you think they would ream him out for leaving them? Or do you think they’d be thankful, cause if it wasn’t for their Dad, well, they wouldn’t be here? But if their Dad had been neutered, there would be plenty of other cats that could become just as special to their human family. Please weigh in, join the discussion, and share your thoughts and comments.

Hills Ideal Balance Crafted, made in small batchesThis post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™, but www.bjbangs.net (Paws for Reflection) only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.

Cats rule at the Paws’ household. They are our soul-mats, and nothing is too good for them. We should re-phrase that and say, almost nothing is good enough for them, and we want to spoil them with lots of yummy gourmet food that’s keeps them healthy for many, many years to come.

When we heard about Hill’s Ideal Balance™ Crafted® line, we were thrilled because it offers slowly cooked food in small batches, tested by a team of highly trained Veterinary Nutritionists, to deliver the ultimate in nutrition for our cats. This is exactly what we’d do at the Paws’ household if we could make a home-made gourmet healthy meal for the kitties from our own oven every day.

Now, sad to say, if the cats had to rely on their ultra-busy humans for this specialty food, they’d probably get it a half-dozen times a year. Thanks to Hills Ideal Crafted, our feline family can feast upon these delectable flavors every day. The new line has dry cat food, canned cat food, and kitty treats.

At Paws for Reflection, we have happy with Hill’s Pet Nutrition products. They’ve been a staple in our feline family for over a decade. Our felines put the new Ideal Balance™ Crafted® to the test, and it won. They loved it.

The detail that has gone into the preparation is pretty amazing. It all begins with selecting high quality meats, wholesome vegetables and ancient grains, including ingredients like barley and chickpeas, to create unique, flavorful recipes. Then, all the ingredients are carefully mixed and added to the dough.

Another real plus, it is:

  • All natural ingredients with:
    • No wheat, corn or soy
    • No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Available in grain-free varieties
  • And it’s made in the USA
  • Gently Cooked

    The dough is gently cooked at 250-300 degrees to lock in flavor and nutrition. It’s carefully cut into crispy, custom-shaped kibble that cat’s love. Years of taste research ensure each bite is as tasty as it can be. Texture and shape are every bit as important to finicky felines who are concerned about more than just nutrition, or even the ingredients. We all know cats can be very picky about what they like and don’t like. And it’s refreshing to hear the new Hill’s Ideal Balance™ Crafted® is the result of many years of Hill’s research into the importance of texture and shape when it comes to the palatability of food for cats.

    The Best for Your Pet

    That same attention to detail and palatability go into the Ideal Balance Crafted wet food. Hill’s mix the meat, gravy and vegetables into a delicious stew. Then it’s canned and slow-cooked at 250 degrees to lock in flavor and nutrition. Years of taste research ensure each bite is as tasty as it can be. The well-crafted style: slower, small batch process ensures quality and consistency.

    It all sounds absolutely delicious, and the kitties at the Paws’ household agree. But now you have a chance to check out for yourself in this exciting Giveaway for a chance to win a $300 gift card to PetSmart to purchase Ideal Balance Crafted products with your dog or cat at a local PetSmart Store.
