Cats! Grab your food bowls, it's DINNER TIME Somewhere! #nutrishforcats Enter to win!

Kitties!!!!! I am purring with excitement about the goodies that I have to share with you today! As many of you know, I am one of a clowder of Ambassacats for NEW NUTRISH FOR CATS! That makes me purr with pride!


Our family has been a Nutrish family since Nutrish for Dogs first appeared on the market in 2008. My Sheltie brother Dakota has been eating it ever since, he is also a proud Ambassadog for the Nutrish brand!! (Dakota was eating Nutrish long before he had a blog, his blog didn't begin until 2011 and mine started in 2009). I had felt left out for quite some time, until Rachael Ray announced that she  had created Nutrish for Cats!


For the last month or so I was lounging around staring out the window and  sunning myself, and I began wondering when I would hear from Mission Control at Nutrish to let me know when my next  mission would be. I began pacing with anticipation! I wanted to share all of the goodness that is Nutrish for Cats with my kitty furiends!!  Kitties, I didn't have to wait long! One day when I was purrticularly hungry I heard a knock at the door. Look what arrived!

I wondered out loud, WHAT COULD THIS BE? This was one of MANY times that I wished I had thumbs to open this!  I KNEW it had to be good! I ran to get Mom and she helped me open the box, it was like CHRISTMAS  Chanukah in JULY!!!!  (what do you expect, I'm a Jewish kitty!!!)

It was a Nutrish for Cats Sample Kit !!!!
How pawsome is that fish wrapping paper on the top left?
The jars on the right had brown rice for Mom so that she could make a delish dinner for she and Dad (Dinner for Two),  and a cat nip toy for me!!!
Oh how I knew I was going to LOVE my  SAMPLING KIT!!
I knew I had to start washing my paws so that I could jump right in!
Everything was packaged in that pawsome shopping bag that you see to the right above!  Mom was disappointed that I didn't play with the toy or the bag much:



 True to form, I was much more interested in the FOOD than I was in the bag OR the toy, but we all know I am all about the FOOD! Especially when it is Nutrish For Cats that we're talkin' about!!!   The heck with cat toys and empty paper bags, just GIVE ME MY NUTRISH FOR CATS!





DO NOT
allow your cat to eat directly from a bag
WITHOUT CLOSE SUPERVISION
The above shot lasted about 5 seconds
Cody was closely supervised!!!

I LOVE the Natural Dry Cat Food! 
I received the Real Salmon and Brown Rice recipe dry food. 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 by-products artificial flavors or artificial preservatives. Just wholesome whole grains and veggies plus the vitamins, minerals and taurine that we kitties need to be healthy and happy.



I LOVE the Natural Wet Cat Food
I received 3 different flavors (I think the Chicken  Purrcata is my fave!)  that were all inspired by recipes from Rachael's kitchen, these delicious recipes are made with simple, natural ingredients like real chicken or fish. There are no grains or anything artificial either — just essential vitamins and minerals for a tasty food your cat will love. Nutrish® for Cats is available where you shop for your family’s groceries. 


Before I was purrmitted to eat my Lip Smackin' Sardine & Mackerel that has
delicious chunks of sardines and mackerel in an irresistible sauce with added vitamins, minerals and taurine, Mom said that this was a special day and I had to wear my bow tie for the occasion.


Because I received the Real Salmon and Brown Rice bag of dry food, Mission Control provided my Mom with a recipe to make for she and Dad that also featured REAL SALMON AND BROWN RICE! It was called the SMOKY MAPLE GLAZED SALMON SUPPER and you can find the recipe HERE!!!  

Watching Mom prepare for, and then make the recipe was when the show REALLY started!! Mom considers herself to be a good cook, she really is, but she rarely follows recipes to the letter. Mom was nervous because 2 different stores didn't have watercress, she bought the wrong size carrots, she dumped (yes, I said DUMPED), too many peas into the frying pan, AND the brainiac forgot that Mission Control had sent her brown rice, so she used HER OWN!  Oh, the recipe also calls for the skin to be REMOVED from the salmon (before cooking!), what did Mom do? She left it on!!! Well guess what, Dad said that this was the BEST salmon that Mom has EVER MADE!! Mom said that even minus the watercress and the skin being on the salmon (the skin developed an amazing, delicious, crispy, maple yumminess!) that the dish was FANTASTIC!! This one is a keeper! Check out the photos!!!!


Ok, Mom said because this dish came out so perfectly and the flavor was to die for, she wants you to see a GOOD photo of the plated meal!


If all of the above isn't enough to make you hungry I don't know what is!!! I don't know about you but I am going to hop on over to the website to check out ALL OF THE FLAVORS of dry and wet food , you can too!!!  Also:

  10. Cody, what a wonderful package you received. Such fun videos. We use to feed Brisco the Nutrish for dogs, but we haven't tried it for Jeremiah, Eli and Sundance. I'm glad to see there is a selection for cats too. I'm sure Traveler would love the Real Salmon and Brown Rice as salmon seems to be a favorite of his.

  25. They love chicken so the Chicken Purrcata for wet and Reall Chicken and Brown Rice is what they would like

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think the tuna purrfection. I LOVE their salmon kibble although TW doesn’t give me much of it. The wet food is too expensive for us, unfortunately. We never saw that coupon that was supposed to be in the paper a while back.
