This month's blogger outreach offer by Chewy.com offered us products that I can't feed The Crew because of Jack's food limitations. One of the products offered was Wellness Duos and I thought that would be good for the foster kittens, so after a bit of thought I wrote back and asked for that.
Well my email went astray, and when I hadn't heard back from them after nearly two weeks, I wrote back and lamented that I was so sad that I hadn't gotten product - and on my birthday month too..
Several days later a nice big box showed up at my door and was promptly claimed by The Crew
I decided to open up on my birthday to see what goodies were in there. Before the box showed up I was just expecting a couple of cans, but I'm sure you agree that box is designed to hold a lot more than that. Wasn't I surprised when I saw what was inside..
Whitley and Rose were all too happy to participate in our little taste test..
They were not even distracted by the great ghost escape during Ghostbusters.. These kitties like their food. They also like their boxes..
The good. It is made by Wellness. They have a very good reputation and are known for some pretty good foods. It doesn't contain corn, wheat, soy, artificial colors or flavors. The kittens ate it. They have turned their noses up at some other foods, so they have met foods they didn't like.
|this is what the food looked like halfway through |
they ran off to play with the boxes for a while
So I won't be buying this for my cats, but it will be nice to be able to offer this to the foster kittens who rely on donated foods for all of their nutrition.
Thank you Chewy.com for sending this to us, and we look forward to next month!

My source is a rep for a company (not Wellness) that manufactures there"
As I said, Wellness has a good reputation, and that takes them a little further in my book in giving them the benefit of the doubt. I wish it was made in the US for several reasons, but the fact that they don't doesn't necessarily get them written off as bad in my book.. but it still gives me pause. (paws?) :D
