#Sponsored All Cats Deserve A Furever Home! A Give-Away from #NutrishPets

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own.


Hi my Kitty (and Woofie) furiends!! It's Cody and today is a most SPECIAL DAY!! So special, that instead of having Mom blog about it like she usually does, I told Mom that this year I had some things to say.

You see, today is my NINTH "FUREVER HOME DAY", or, as many of you call it, my "GOTCHA DAY!!"

I have now been living in my furever home for NINE wonderful (ok, let's be honest, they have been also sometimes irritating) years!!!

Most of you already know my adoption story, so today, instead of talking about the irritating parts of my family, I am going to focus on what makes my FUREVER HOME so special!!!

MOM

I am listing Mom first because she will lose her mind if I don't   because she was the one who met me first, and decided to bring me home. Mom always tells me how brave I am. I am not afraid of much of anything. I don't even hide when it is time to go to the Vet! Mom loves to "hold hands" with me when we watch late night TV,  she often uses my ample behind as a pillow. I don't mind one bit. I like being all warm, cozy and cuddly with Mom, and it makes me happy to know that I make HER  happy!!!


DELICIOUS FOOD

Nothing makes me happier than meal time!!!! Mom and Dad care about whether or not my food is good for me and whether or not I think it TASTES GOOD!   When my Sheltie brother used to bark at me about how much he loved his Nutrish, (In 2007, with help from pet nutrition experts, Rachael Ray created Nutrish super-premium food and treats for dogs inspired by recipes from her own kitchen. Dakota has been eating Nutrish since 2008 and he didn't even have a blog til 2011!!)  In 2014, (after listening to me meow---kidding!!!) Nutrish was very excited to grow the brand into the world of cat food. That excited ME and TONS of other kitties!!! Whether intended for dogs or cats, Nutrish recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers.

DAD





While I love my Mom to the moon and back, I am also quite the "Daddy's Boy." So much so, that it often makes Mom shake her head in wonder.  Mom feels there are two teams in our house. "Team Cat" and "Team Dog." (Isn't that AWFUL!!??), well, Mom has named herself the head of "Team Cat" and she says Dad is the head of "Team Dog." Looking at the photo above, I would have to disagree, and I am pretty certain that you disagree too! I love my Dad!!! Truth be told it is DAD who feeds me every morning while Mom is still snoring dreaming away!!

YUMMY FOOD

Did I mention FOOD??? See the food/treat dispenser above? (It's also in a photo further up on the blog post with the bag of Nutrish.) Mom, Dad, Dakota and I have a tradition. At 11pm I start  my annoying whining reminding them that it is time for Dakota and I to have a snack! Mom or Dad, (whomever I annoy the most), fills my dispenser to the brim with Nutrish!!! Then I go to bed full and happy!!!

DAKOTA



As much as I hate to admit it, (and PLEASE don't tell him I said this),  but my days are much more fun because I get to spend them with my Sheltie brother, Dakota. I was adopted July 28, 2007 and Dakota came to live with us October 19th, 2007. I am betting that most of you don't know that we are the same age! Mom is proud of me because when Dakota joined our family, I only hissed at him ONCE. Mom says that is because I am such a good cat. Not at all. I put my paw down from day one letting him know that I WAS HERE FIRST and that I RULE. I hissed at him that first day, and being the intelligent woofie that he is, he  became hip to the rules around here FAST.

Dakota and I play with each other, (my favorite game is to act like I am being submissive as you see above), then.....when Sheltie boy falls for it, I jump up and either attack him or chase him. "Let the games begin!!"

DID I MENTION  FOOD???


DID YOU KNOW THAT RACHAEL RAY NUTRISH

 dry and wet cat food recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers.

Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue, which was created to help shelter pets in need. To date, she has donated over $14MM. This money has gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for these unfortunate animals. 

At CatConLA this past June, there was a specially themed adoption area courtesy of Rachael Ray Nutrish called “Rachael Ray Nutrish Furever Home.” 


I AM ONE LUCKY CAT

Not all kitties are as lucky as I am, or as lucky as you all are. Many kitties are living in shelters and  haven't found their furever homes yet. That makes me sad. I pray that one day ALL kitties will have a furever home filled with love and good-for-you, delicious food like I have. Now, if you will excuse me.......all of this talk about FOOD has made me HUNGRY!!!!!!  KITTIES!!! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RE-ENACT THE LAST SCENE IN THIS VIDEO WITHOUT HUMAN SUPERVISION!!!!!! MY MOM WAS RIGHT THERE THE WHOLE TIME! TURN YOUR VOLUME UP SO YOU CAN HEAR ME MUNCHING!!!






KITTIES!!! I know you have to be as hungry as I am!! All of the Rachael Ray Nutrish products are available where you shop for your family’s groceries, making specialty recipes accessible and convenient for every pet parent. I suggest that you tell your human to run out and get you some Nutrish for Cats NOW!!!

  5. I always say, "every dog deserves to experience the pain of living with cats like we do at my house". Actually, cats are fun pals some of the time. We have always had adopted shelter or rescue cats. Mom believes strongly in always having a shelter cat.

  10. We currently have three cats at our house. Moko is our cuddle girl - she loves people and dogs, but not so much with other cats. Arata is actually my daughter's cat and is about 2-1/2 and is very active. We lost our senior boy, Koneko, back in February and fate brought us a new kitty. On July 6th I found a little feral kitten in our neighbors' yard - she had to have been 2-3 weeks old, so I've been bottle feeding her and she's growing like a weed. We named her Kotoha. I'd love to win this food for them!

  25. Happy Gotcha Day Cody!!!! It has been our experience that doggies are easy to train, at least for us cats. Sometimes the humans have a few problems but then again humans are pretty clueless about lots of things. Humans are also fairly easy for smart cats to train, it seems as if you have everyone pretty well trained at your place. And how silly of your Mom to think there are 2 teams at your house, we know of course that everything revolves around CATS.

  26. We paid 45 dollars for a bag of cat food once. Can you say spoiled?

  28. Happy Gotcha Day!

    We've never seen that food here in Canada. Of course, we have to try a hypoallergenic food now to see if that helps Devi.

  29. Happu Gotcha Day Cody,
    Of course you are a good cat. Hissing just once to Dakota is really nice. Loustiquette seems to really like hissing at me.
