Our pets are not just animals or pets, they’re part of our family. We refer to the dogs and cats as brothers and sister to the kidlets, who treat them just like siblings. Because I care about what I feed my kids, I also care about what I feed our fur-babies. It’s very important to me that they eat healthy, with food that is made with real meat, and not all the weird fillers.
I’ve been feeding the dogs Rachael Ray Nutrish for dogs for quite a number of years – ever since it first came out. They always have very healthy coats and haven’t had any skin rashes or dry flaky skin like some of the other dog foods have instigated.
I was ecstatic when I found out that Rachael Ray is introducing Nutrish for Cats – I’m pretty sure I did a happy dance at the news.
Real chicken or salmon is always the number one ingredient in every bag of Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® for Cats. There’s no ground corn, wheat or soy. And there’s never any poultry by-product meal, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives. Just wholesome whole grains and veggies plus the vitamins, minerals and taurine your cat needs to be healthy and happy.
I was honored when I received this cute little care package:
Lila was intrigued by the package, too. And because she tends to think the cats are futuristic play toys, they keep a wide berth from her. She is, after all, the newbie in our family, and has never set eyes on real cats before. It’ll take time for them to get used to each other, but it will happen.
We had to get creative and introduce the cats to the new deliciousness of Nutrish in the privacy of Princess Nagger’s room, where they hide out on their new kitty condo. Blackspot was a little concerned that the whining dog blocked by the baby gate at the top of the stairs might invade his territory.
Once he figured out no dogs were tailing us, he settled down:
He checked out the set up we had on Princess Nagger’s bed, and carefully scoped things out. Be sure to read his thoughts with a British accent, because that’s how Princess Nagger talks for him:
I was trying to videotape him eating, and discovered I had pulled a ‘Ted Mosby” and had the camera switched on my phone. D’Oh!
I did manage to capture video a bit later after discovering my faux pas, after moving the bowl close to him as he was lounging at the end of the bed keeping a sharp eye on the doorway for any invading dogs. This is a screen shot of that moment:
Bottom line, he loved it! He loved both the dry and the wet food, so I can now rest easy that I’ll be feeding my cool cats healthy cat food vs. the alternative.
#Squeak had been chased by Lila earlier in the day, and ended up hiding out way up on top of my still-wrapped curio cabinet. No amount of coaxing would make him budge:
Travis and Rolex were a bit disappointed they weren’t the center of attention, and kept a close eye on everything:
Thanks to Rachel Ray, us two-leggers got to enjoy a delicious healthy meal, too. Since we’re here in the great Pacific Northwest where Salmon is of the utmost freshness, I selected Rachael Ray’s Smoky Maple-Glazed Salmon Supper recipe for us to enjoy:
You can either click on the name of the recipe, or click on the image of it to open and download the PDF version so you can make it, too. It was delicious! It’s definitely a recipe we’ll be using again and again in the future.
If you have cats and want to let them try the best cat food, you’re in luck!
One lucky Stacy Uncorked reader will win a Nutrish prize package that includes a bag of Nutrish for cats and a sampling of Nutrish wet foods!
Are your cats picky eaters?
