Okay, so I must admit, I am a bona-fide "Crazy Cat Lady." Minus the shopping cart with a broken wheel and loads of crocheted doilies, of course. That may be me in about 35 years, but for now, I am content to just be a cat lover. And of course, waste copious amounts of time looking at cat pictures online, because that's what crazy cat ladies do, right?
Anyway, we have a pretty unique situation here in my home. We have 4 indoor kitties, Noodles, Pringles, Truffles and Havarti. They pretty much run the show, with Pringles as their fearless leader. The cats have us humans pretty well-trained. Truffles actually follows me into the bathroom every single time I need to go, hops up on the vanity, and meows at me till I turn the water on for her. Yep. She's the boss. I am just the lowly human.
Then, we also have 2 outdoor cats. We call them our "Yard Crashers." It actually started off as 3 cats, a Mama and her 2 babies....But no one has seen the 2nd baby in over a week, so we fear that something happened to him. I hope that someone found him and decided to take him indoors, but I know how Mother Nature works, and sometimes things happen to wild animals, unfortunately. Anyway, we have been feeding and watering our feral family and trying to establish trust. Once they're totally comfortable and will allow handling, we intend to take them to the vet to get fixed and up to date on vaccinations. Even feral cats deserve a shot at living a happy, healthy life.
When it comes to our cats, we always try and give them the best of everything. Whether it's premium, organic catnip, one of their massive kitty-condos, or the best cat food, these cats are beyond spoiled. So of course, when I learned about Rachael Ray's Nutrish for Cats, I couldn't wait to try it out with my pets!
Before I share our experience with this natural food for cats, let me tell you a bit about this line. Nutrish for Cats comes in both wet and dry food varieties, and is formulated with just the right nutrients a cat needs to thrive.
Real meat like chicken or fish is the #1 ingredient in these delicious recipes. There’s never any junk like meat poultry by-product meal, artificial flavors or preservatives. Just simple, wholesome recipes with a great taste your cat will instinctively love. Look for these wholesome recipes available in dry formulas and wet formulas with fun flavors like Chicken Purrcata, Ocean Fish-alicious and Lip Smackin’ Sardine & Mackerel where you currently shop for your family’s groceries.
Do the Kitties Approve ?
We received a nice assortment of both wet and dry food to test on our kitties. Also included in our package were some great chicken and salmon recipes from Rachael Ray herself! (And you know that gal can cook!) So I whipped us up some delicious Teriyaki Chicken with Whole Grain Brown Rice, and we enjoyed it while our cats dug into some Nutrish Lip Smackin' Sardine and Mackerel wet food.
It's funny. When I opened up this food, Pringles, the ring-leader, came running. Sadly, so did our Yorkie, Trouble. This didn't end well. I ended up getting clawed to pieces while Pringles tried to escape the dog's curiosity. Ultimately, I had to move Trouble to another room so the poor kitties could dine in peace!
First Pringles dug in. Then Truffles showed up. Noodles and Havarti weren't too far behind, either. Thankfully, my kitties have excellent table manners, and didn't mind taking turns.
My indoor kitties absolutely loved Nutrish for Cats. While they happily gobbled up the dry food, the wet entrees were definitely the real stars. I can't say I blame them, though. Fresh fish and chicken? Yes, please! And I love the fact that I don't have to worry about artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers. When my cats dine on Nutrish for Cats, they're getting nothing but wholesome, whole foods.
A Nutrish Feast for our Feral Family :
Of course we couldn't leave the Yard Crashers out. They deserve to eat like royalty, too. Whenever I head to my backyard, I am quickly greeted by Mama and her baby. They don't really let me pet them much or pick them up yet, but they do follow me around and meow at me. Especially when they're ready for some food.
I decided to treat my Yard Crashers to some decadent Chicken Purrcata. I opened the container and placed it in the grass, just a few feet from where I was standing. (Like I said, these kitties are feral, so they don't like coming too close just yet.)
Mama kitty approached slowly, but the baby trotted right up to the food and started eating away. Soon enough, Mama was right there with her kitten, lapping up this delicious food.
Overall, I am absolutely delighted with Nutrish for Cats by Rachael Ray. Both my indoor and outdoor cats absolutely devour this food, and I get peace of mind knowing that their meals are all-natural and nutritionally-sound. Kudos to Rachael Ray for introducing a line of cat food that everyone can feel good about! We will definitely be purchasing more Nutrish for Cats during our next shopping trip!
