A donation of Dr. Elsey's cleanprotein Dry Food to the Great Plains Kitten Shower thanks to #chewyinfluencer



If you remember, I had my April offerings from the Chewy Influencer Program (where they offer me several items to choose from in exchange for an honest review) sent to Kansas while I was at BlogPaws. Stilwell reviewed one product for me and I planned to bring the other to the shelter as a donation. Turns out they were having a kitten shower that weekend, which was even better!

The second item for April I chose was Dr. Elsey's cleanprotein Grain-Free Dry Cat Food. This is not a new food to me, I learned about it a little while ago and have meant to do a review of the canned version of this food for my own cats, but haven't gotten around to it. Knowing that most shelters prefer to feed dry food (because of the convenience) I thought a bag of good food would be helpful even if it was only two pounds.  Dr. Elsey's makes a few claims about this food which is interesting like: •Over 90% of protein is animal-based. •Primary ingredients are among the highest biological value proteins available. •Lower glycemic formula delivers just 4% of energy from carbohydrates.

I have to give kudos to any food that tells you upfront what the carb level is of their food. You also have to love a company that has a bit of humor about things



So, we went to the kitten shower..


The shower was at Great Plains SPCA Animal Shelter. They had a few tables of displays talking about enrichment for the cats while they hang out at the shelter like puzzle toys and laser games. They are also including some Christmas light displays that shoot out pins of light so the cats cat watch them as they sit in the cages. Not see is a table that had "make your own cat toy" out of cut up t-shirts (which I did) and other crafty type things you could do quickly. They encouraged people to give the toys to the shelter cats.


Speaking of cats, they did have one kitten there and somehow I didn't end up with it in my pocket.. Probably because I was being watched very closely. Jenny was there volunteering and knew I was prone to walking away with kittens.


They had a bean bag toss game for kids too, as well as refreshments


Their wishlist was on full display. I am sure more shelters have very similar needs and could use either a bag of food, a case of canned food (always in short supply) or any of the things above.

Thank you to Chewy for the donation and another chance to take photos of shelter cats - which you will see in another upcoming post

  1. That sounds like an awesome event! And what a sweet kitten - you must have been watched very carefully if the baby didn't go home with you.

  2. Ok, you need to up your game - that tot was adorable, and very small. Next time, distract Jenny with some chocolate or something, and just slip the baby in your pocket.

  7. This is so cool! And now I need to look up making cat toys out of old t-shirts. I have a lot of shirts from fun runs that aren't old or worn out, they just sit in a drawer. It'd be nice to use them in a fun, creative, useful way.
