It's the Year of the Cat with Wellness® Complete Health™ Available at PetSmart #HappyMeetsHealthy #ad
This post is sponsored by Wellness® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Complete Health and NEW Complete Health Grain Free Cat Food available at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness or PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.
You know the old saying, "You are what you eat"?... Well, we humans have to make those decisions for our animal friends. In fact it's an even bigger deal for them because they eat the same thing almost everyday. How boring must that get?!
Anyway, our feline and canine friends cannot speak up for themselves and choose which foods they prefer to be part of their diet. They rely on us to do our research and choose the highest quality foods that will help keep them happy and healthy for many years to come. This is a responsibility I don't take lightly as a pet owner, and I always try to choose our pets' foods with their overall well-being in mind. And yes, the animals have to LIKE the food, too. I have some incredibly picky kitties in my home, so taste absolutely does matter here as well.
Since it's actually the Year of the Cat, we decided to reexamine our cats' diets. We have 6 cats, and they tend to get picky and crave change sometimes. I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for nutritious, high quality foods that will have my kitties purring with approval while taking care of their specific nutritional needs.
Recently, we learned about three NEW Grain Free options in the Wellness® Complete Health line. Adult: deboned Chicken and Chicken Meal, Indoor: Salmon and Herring Meal, Kitten: Deboned Chicken and Chicken Meal.
We're fans of the Wellness® brand in general, since they specialize in creating pet foods that offer only the best, balanced nutrition to our furry family members. All of Wellness' recipes are free from corn, carrageenan, soy and wheat as well as artificial colors and flavors.
The Wellness Difference is about being more than natural. And it’s not about what is left out—no fillers, or artificial ingredients—these are a given for the folks at Wellness. True Wellness is about what they put in—a small number of simple, pure, authentic ingredients. Wellness believes this is the way to make superior food for our animals.
The Wellness Difference means every ingredient has a purpose in every food they make. They study until they’re confident of its health benefit… and then, they make sure to put in the right amount so you’ll see a difference in your animal— Wellness never adds ingredients just to have the newest ‘buzzword’ on the label.
We picked up a nice variety of Wellness® dry and canned foods for our kitty companions. We were greeted at the door by Noodles, Mary Jane, and Cheeseball, who couldn't wait to see what tasty morsels we brought home with us.
Check these cats out! They wasted absolutely no time in sampling their new foods from Wellness! Both the dry and canned foods were a huge hit, but the star of the show has to be the Salmon and Herring Meal. Or maybe the Tuna....Or maybe it was the Complete Health Indoor Dry food.
Okay. So my typically picky cats devoured it all with absolutely no complaints. Looks like Wellness is a winner in our home! As a pet owner, I feel good about that, since I know that Wellness only offers the best for our furry family members!
Catisfaction Guarantee: if your cat doesn’t like the new Wellness recipes, please return the unused portion back to Petsmart for a full refund.
Visit PetSmart® to check out and purchase your cat’s favorite Wellness® Complete Health and Complete Health Grain Free options.

Well, even though we saw a few inches of snow a couple weeks ago here in NE Ohio, I think it's finally safe to say that spring is here. In these parts of the world, that also means that grilling season has officially arrived, too.
Here in the Cleveland area, we really don't need much coaxing to break out our grills. Shoot, it can be snowing and frigid, and guaranteed, somewhere in NE OH, someone is still grilling. I prefer to wait until the temperature is about double my age to venture out to grill since cold and I do not get along well, but to each their own.
Anyway. We're absolutely thrilled that the weather has warmed up and that we can start spending our days and evenings in the yard, doing things together as a family. Whether it's grilling burgers, dogs, and steaks, setting up our massive inflatable waterslide, or sitting around a fire making tasty S'mores, we make the best memories outdoors.
Speaking of S'mores and grilling, we recently learned that Blue Rhino, the makers of those handy Propane tanks we all know and love this time of year, offer a lot more than fuel. That's right. Blue Rhino sells a lot more than just Propane. Who knew?! Admittedly, I did not know this. ~Hangs head in shame~
Blue Rhino also carries Grills, Fire Pits, Fireplace Accessories, and even Grilling Tools. How cool is that?!
I'm actually drooling over their Mr. Pizza Oven and Grill.
Recently, they sent me an assortment of these awesome summer must haves to check out for myself. We couldn't wait to check them out!
Every 33 seconds a child under 13 is involved in a car crash in the United States. For younger children, car seats can dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury – but over half of car seats are either installed or used incorrectly. For older children, buckling up is critical. A full 50% of children age 8-14 who were killed in car crashes from 2011-2015 were not restrained.
That’s why we want parents and caregivers to know about the importance of making sure their child is safely restrained—whether that’s selecting the right car seat for their child’s age and size, or making sure that older kids (8-14) always buckle their seat belts and sit in the backseat.
As parents, we all want to do the right thing to keep our children safe and sound. This spring, the Ad Council and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are unveiling new PSAs to address these important issues. First, is the up to date car seat safety information like the tips found in the fun new video series “The Wide World of Car Seats.”
The right car seat can make all the difference in a motor vehicle crash. And car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. But despite their best intentions, many parents may not realize their child isn’t in the right seat. For example, many parents move their children to the next restraint type (car seat, booster seat, seat belt) too soon. To make sure you have the right seat for your child, visitSaferCar.gov/TheRightSeat.
And just when you think you’ve got this parenting thing down, your child becomes a “tween” and you enter a whole new world. To help with travel safety, the Ad Council and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are unveiling new PSAs featuring characters from Fox’s upcoming summer road trip adventure Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. The PSAs remind parents and caregivers that even if kids argue and plead, parents should stand firm and always insist that their kids buckle up and sit in the back seat (the safest place for kids under the age of 13)
I’ve been training my kids since they were young about the importance of seat belt and travel safety, so luckily I don’t have to work very hard to convince them to be safe. It’s just expected. That expectation doesn’t mean I assume my kids are buckled up, I always check in the mirror and listen for the familiar click. I’ve also noticed that buckling up is not always automatic when we have friends in the car. I’m not afraid to require everyone in my car to buckle up and find that most kids are willing to do it when asked.
My kids have also observed their friends being allowed to ride in the front seat inside the neighborhood which has led to begging and pleading for front seat privileges. When my oldest daughter was just an infant, a 12 year old boy was killed in a low impact collision in a local grocery store parking lot. He was sitting in the front seat, which is more dangerous for kids. This experience has stuck with me and reminds me that my children’s safety is far more important than my popularity for the day or week. So it’s easy for me to know that this is a battle I’m willing to fight every day.)
Per data from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 69,000 tweens are injured every year in car crashes and 61% of 14-year-old children killed in 2015 car crashes were unrestrained at the time of the crash. Even though life as a parent is full of compromises, seat belt safety should never be up for negotiation. That’s why the new PSAs encourage us to: “Never give up until they buckle up!”
For more information or if you need more tips to convince your tween to buckle up, visit SaferCar.gov/KidsBuckleUp. If you have a great tip, join the conversation on social media using: #KidsBuckleUp.

Spring is here, and Easter is right around the corner!
For many of us, that means tons of time with family and friends, or maybe even an exciting Spring Break adventure or two. Road trip, anyone?
