New Food

Sid here,

Chewy sent Bob a new food for us to try, but with all the craziness going on between him starting a new job, and the normal holiday insanity he almost forgot to let us try it.  It's from Natural Balances Delectable Delights line and the flavor is called Catatouille which means it is chicken and chicken liver flavored. We all thought it was pretty good, Sable even got on the counter and tried to talk Bob into opening more of it for him. This one gets all 12 paws up!

Happy Holidays!



Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year.

New Treat

Sid here,

Chewy sent Bob a new treat for us to try.  It's put out by Tiny Tiger and has chicken, turkey and duck flavors in it.  We all thought it was OK, but we like our Party Mix better. The only one that didn't eat it was Midnight, but she is just strange and does not like treat. I figure it gets about 10 out of 20 paws up.

New Food

Sid here,

Chewy sent us another new food to try and I had to remind Bob to help me post about it. Unfortunately it was close to Thanksgiving when he selected it for us to try, so he ordered Turkey flavor and found out when he gave it to us, that none of us are overly fond of turkey.

Ashlyn, Midnight, Sable and I all tried it. Ashlyn thought it was good, because she likes freeze dried raw meat, but the rest of us thought we could pretty much take it or leave it.

I guestimate it to get 6 out of 12 paws up.

New Food

Obsidian here;

Chewy sent us another new food to try out. This one is from a brand that is new to us.  It is called MIKO. The pack we got is their Poultry and Tuna variety. Midnight, Sable and I all loved the Chicken and Turkey, Chicken and Vegetable and Chicken flavors, but Midnight was the only one that liked the Tuna flavor.  I guess that gives it about 11 paws up.

New Food

Sable here,

Chewy sent Bob another food for us to try. This time is was Fancy Feast Medleys White Meat Chicken Collection. There was a Primavera in classic sauce, a Tuscany in savory sauce, and a Florentine in delicate sauce. Obsidian and I have decided that we can't go wrong with this stuff. We love all of it. 8 paws way up!

New Food

Sable here,

Chewy sent us a special Thanksgiving food to try. It's a bit early, but Bob assured us he would make sure we had a couple of cans left over to have it for Thanksgiving. It is from Merrick's Purrfect Bistro line and Sid and I both think it is pretty good. 8 paws up for this one.

New Food

Sable here,

Chewy sent us a new food to sample. The brand is Tiny Tiger and the flavor we got is Turkey and Giblets. Obsidian and I both love it, so it gets 8 paws up!

Sleeping Cutie

Cosette here,

Bob saw me sleeping in my spot and decided to enroll me in the Sleeping Cutie Club. He's silly, but I like him. Just don't tell Monika.


September 08, 2018

New Treat

Sid here,

Chewy sent us a free pack of a new treat to try out. It's Green Lamb Tripe from PetKind. Instead of kibble it comes in strips like jerky. Bob broke up a piece for each of us and let us try it out. Sable, Ashlyn and I all tried it, but we only ate a little and then left the rest. Cosette sniffed it once and told Bob she wanted our regular treat instead. That gives it a total of about 6 paws up.

September 07, 2018

Cosette's New Spot

Cosette here,

I tore up the old tree in the computer room pretty badly, so Bob and Monika got rid of it and got us a new one. I have decided it is mine and I clawtograghed the left leg to let everyone know. This is now my favorite place to be when Monika is not home. However, when she is home my favorite place to be is with her.

September 03, 2018

Sad Week

We're all sad this week. Bob's oldest and closest friend Rob passed away. They were friends for over 30 years and he used to come to check on us when Bob and Monika had to be away from home so we kitties grew to like him also. Rob was always quick to smile and happy to help anyone who needed him.

King of The Tower

Obsidian got up here and decided he wanted to get under the blanket, so I got on top of him. That makes me the King of the Tower.


Keep dreaming squirt! I'm the reigning King here.


Then why am I up here, while you are down there?

Cosette and Ashlyn;

Sounds like you two have been talking to Frostin.  Does that mean that we are Princesses again?

August 26, 2018

New Food

Sable here,

Chewy sent Bob another new food for us to review. It is weruva's BFF Potluck O' Pouches. There were 6 kinds and they all have funny names;

  1. Date Nite! which is Duck & Salmon in Gravy
  2. Purr-fect Plannin'! which is Chicken, Turkey & Salmon in Gravy
  3. Shazaam! which is Lamb & Tuna in Gravy
  4. Seeya Sooner! which is Chicken & Tuna in Gravy
  5. Ciao Baby! which is Chicken & Shrimp in Gravy
  6. Booya! which is Beef & Chicken in Gravy
They all tasted great, but our favorite was the Seeya Sooner! followed closely by the Shazaam!. What can I say? We're cats and cats love Tuna.

Obsidian and I are the only cats that like wet food here now, but we give this a big 8 paws up.


August 17, 2018

New Litter

Chewy sent us another litter from Frisco to try out. One major improvement over the last frisco litter we tried is that this one came in a jug instead of a bag, making it easier to handle and harder for the cats to get into before it was actually put into their litter boxes. Also this version doesn't seem to clump as solid. We had started using their original litter regularly, but we had to stop because it was clogging up our litter scoop and we had to use a screwdriver to scrape it back off. All in all I would give it 8 out of 10 stars.

Samson Has a New Home

Samson here,

My new pet humans came to bring me to my Furever home yesterday. Monika told me I am going to have another cat to be friends with, plus a dog. I'm not sure I know what a dog is, but I'm sure I will like my new home.

Farewell Queen Munchkin

Today is a sad day for Monika and me. Our Tortie Munchkin had to be assisted to the rainbow bridge. She was 18 1/2 years old and she was always Daddy's girl even though we originally got her for Monika. She quickly wrapped me around her paw and she was the Ruler in her Kingdom within our home. She hasn't been gone a full day yet, but already I miss her more than words can say. Enjoy yourself on the rainbow bridge and keep the other pets there in line Munchkin.

Foster Fail

Sable here,

Obsidian and I have bonded so well that Bob and Monika decided I get to stay with them forever. I'm so happy that I don't have to go to another humans home.


July 29, 2018

New Food

Munchkin here,

The second new food Chewy sent us this week was Victor's shredded chicken dinner. 
We all tend to prefer pate to shredded, but we all liked this anyways. 16 paws way up.

New Fosters

Hi,  I'm Sable. Bob and Monika caught me while they were trying to catch my Mom Midnight. She was very pregnant and they hoped that she would have the babies inside where they would be safe, but Mom is very trap savvy and wanted nothing to do with being caught. She likes Bob and will let him pet her while she is eating, but will run away if he tries to pick her up. On the other hand, I am afraid of Bob and I will barely let him pet me a couple of times and then I am ready to run away.

Hi, I'm Samson I am one of the kittens Midnight had after Bob and Monika caught Sable. They are still trying to catch my Mom, but so far they have had no luck. Unlike my brother, I love Bob and I like to lay in his lap while he on the computer and to sleep cuddled next to him.

New Food

Munchkin here,

This month Chewy sent us two new foods to try.  The first one we tried was Beyond Wild from Purina.  The flavor is Turkey Liver and Quail and we all loved it including the two fosters we have currently, giving it a whopping 16 paws up.

June 29, 2018

New Food

Bob here,

Chewy sent us some food made specifically for Momma cats with little kittens to try out. It's Royal Canin's Mother and Babycat canned. We had to pass this one on to another Foster as we have no kittens here currently, but the Foster Mamma was happy to inform us that the Mother and all four of her babies loved it and she has since bought two cases of it.

In Munchkin's paws up reckoning that gives it a 4 big paws up and 16 adorable little paws up.

Something New For The Fosters

Bob here,

We have a ferret nation cage that we use for our fosters and for female cats to re cooperate in after they are spayed.  We were lining the bottom with news paper in case the cat didn't use the litter box, but we decided to try the Wee Wee pads that Chewy was offering for review and they are a god send. With the news papers, if a cat peed it got all over the bottom of the cage and was a pain to clean up, but with the pads, I can just fold it to the center, tie it up in a grocery bag and take it to the dumpster.

I don't know about paws, but Monika and I give them 4 thumbs up.

New Book

Bob here,

Chewy sent me another Chicken Soup for the Soul Cat book to read.  This one is called My Very Good, Very Bad Cat and like the others of the set, it is a collection of short stories about peoples cats.  I love reading them and tend to see a little bit of one of my cats in just about every story.

May 27, 2018

New Food

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent us some more I and Love and You to try out.  This variety had Purrky Turkey, which we had tried in a different variety pack, Beef Right Meow which Obsidian and I both loved, and Savory Salmon, which I liked, but Obsidian was not too crazy about.

That gives it about 6 paws up.

April 28, 2018

New Food

Munchkin here,

Chewy also sent us the Cats in The Kitchen Variety Pack to try this month.  We have had the Cats in The Kitchen canned food so we expected to like it and Obsidian and I both loved it.  The only complaint we have is that it is a smaller serving size than the cans.

That gives it 6 out of 8 paws up.

April 14, 2018

New Food

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent Bob a new food for us to try. The brand is American Journey and he got the poultry variety for us to try. The flavors are chicken in gravy, chicken and turkey in gravy and turkey in gravy.

Bob started us off with the chicken, the the next day we got chicken and turkey and the day after that he gave us the turkey. I loved all three of them, but Obsidian was not very impressed. That is fine by me though, because it leaves more for me to enjoy.

4 paws way up!

March 25, 2018

New Treat

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent us a new treat to try. It's Purely Filets from Fancy Feast. They taste yummy, but Bob had to cut it into bite-size pieces for me because I have trouble when I try to eat something that big. We all liked it though. Even Ashlyn and Cosette had some and they don't usually like stuff that looks like human food.

16 paws way up!


March 19, 2018

New Litter

Bob here,

Chewy sent us a new litter to try out. It's Clean Paws from Fresh Step. I emptied one litter and filled it with the Clean Paws so I could monitor the difference form our old litter. First thing I noticed is that a lot less litter is tracked out of the box than with our regular, but our cats seem to prefer the old litter as the other litters see much more use than the one that I changed.  For Munchkins paw count I would guesstimate 6 out of 16 paws up.

Titan Follow Up

Titan here,

My new Foster Mom got me this nice sweater to keep warm after my surgery. I think I look pretty handsome in it.

Titanic Changes in The Life of a Kitty

Purrsia here,

In the 10 days since I last posted there have been some major changes in my life.

First Monika realized that the shelter had my sex wrong and I am actually a boy kitty, so she and Bob changed my name to Darius.

Next, I had my surgery and they found out I got my hernia because some mean person had kicked me and they caused some internal damage also, but the nice People at The Way Home that Bob and Monika foster for got me all fixed up and at the same time got me fixed.  That sound redundant to me, but I will take their word for it.

Then after my surgery, they moved me to a new foster parent that is also fostering a kitten that is about my age so we can both have a playmate that is our own size.

Then finally because of all the Titanic trouble I have already gone through in my short life, they decided to change my name again.  My new name is Titan.

Our New Foster Needs Help

Meet Purrsia,

Orange County Animal Services contacted our cat rescue and said they had a kitten with scabies and asked if we wanted to take her in. Of course, we went out and got her. We gave her the medicine she needed and the scabies are all but gone now, but the county neglected to tell us that she also has feline herpes and a hernia. We are taking care of her herpes also, but her hernia is going to cost a minimum of $800. The Vet said depending on how hard the surgery was it could cost up to $2000.

Below is the original post from our shelters Facebook;

Our sweet rescue PURRSIA, formally Carmen A397125, from @orangecountyanimalservices needs surgery to repair a bad ingunial hernia.
Her stomach is very distended because a portion of her intestines have slipped thru the muscle causing it to create a large lump.
Unfortunately she is fighting a bad URI and needs to recover before surgery.
She a fighter.... eating and drinking well as well as still lovable and even to playing some during her discomfort. If you can donate to her surgery we would be very grateful.

New Food Part 3

Munchkin here,

The third flavor of I and Love and You, was Purrky Turkey and as with the others, Obsidian and I both loved it. I'll have to see if I can get Monika to start ordering it too.

New Med For Munchkin

Bob here,

I have been trying to find a joint health supplement for Munchkin for a while and every time I tried giving one to her, she would not touch it. This month Chewy had Cosequin Soft Chews, so I tried it. The chews are bigger than she likes, so I have to crumble them into her food, but she eats them with no fuss! She hasn't been on them long enough to tell if they are helping her, but I am so glad she at least eats these.

February 18, 2018

New Food Part 2

Munchkin here,

The next flavor we tried was Oh My Cod! and the name about says it all. Monika doesn't care much for the smell of it, but Obsidian and I love it. * paws up.

Foster Fail of a Sad Kind

Bob here,

I am very sad to have to say that we released Samantha back outside yesterday. We had decided to let her out into the bedroom seeing as she always used the litter box even if it did just have sheets of newspaper in it. When I checked on her about an hour later she had peed and pooped on our bed. Living her life closed up in our spare bathroom is no life for her and no one is going to adopt a cat that won't use the litter box correctly. So we returned her to her colony where at least we can keep watch on her and give her flea treatments and such when needed.

February 11, 2018

New Food Part 1

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent us another new food to try. The brand is I and love and you, and the flavor we tried today is chicken me out. Obsidian and I both loved it so it gets a solid 8 paws up.

February 04, 2018

Play Time For Samantha

Samantha here,

Monika brought in a stick toy for me to play with and Bob brought in the camera to film me. I was having bunches of fun, but I got a little nervous when I first saw the camera. Bob says he is sorry it is so dark, but Windows 10 decided to be evil and say that his video editing program that he used to use is not compatible.

February 03, 2018


Putting dirt in the litter did not work, and she's not using the Cat Attract litter either, but I had laid a sheet of newspaper down and she used that. So I put another sheet over the litter in the box and now she goes on that, so at least she is going inside the box. It's kind of an odd fix, but it is working so I will take it.

January 31, 2018

Meet Samantha

I'm Samantha,

I was one of the outside cats where Bob and Monika live, but Monika picked me up by my scruff and brought me in. At first, they thought I was pregnant, but it turned out I have a bad bladder infection. As a result, I was in their master bathroom a day and a half before I went to the bathroom. But Bob says I made up for lost time. I also have scabbies which Monika has treated me for. Here is another picture of me that was taken the first day I was here.

Bob and Monika both say I am a very sweet kitty, but I am afraid of the litter box and will not use it. They have tried two different litter boxes and now they have the litter in the cover of a printer paper box to see if maybe a shorter box will work. They changed to it last night and I still pooed outside it, so this morning they changed to a corn-based litter to see if I like that. They hope they can find something that will get me to use the litter, because if they don't they will have to put me back outside once I am healthy again.

Bob here,

If anyone has any suggestions for getting her to use the litter box please post them here. I would hate to have to put such a sweet cat back outside.

January 30, 2018

New Food Part 4

Munchkin here,

I almost forgot to tell you about the last flavor of Weruva Cats in The Kitchen. It's Chicken Frick 'A Zee and it tastes yummy.  Obsidian and I liked the Cats in The Kitchen food so much that Monika added it to her monthly Chewy order for us.


January 29, 2018

Haylee Went Home

Haylee here,

I got adopted Thursday! This is me and my new Mommy.  SHe said I have a brother kitty at her house too. I can hardly wait to meet and play with him.


January 23, 2018

Surprising Bob

Cosette here,

I surprised Bob last night. Usually when he comes to be, if I am on the bed, I let him get one or two pets in and then I move out of his reach, or get off the bed altogether. This time I just lay there and let him pet me for a bit, and then when he laid down I came looking for more pets. Then, when I went toward the foot of the bed to get out of reach and he rolled over to go to sleep, I came back up to the small of his back and rubbed against him to let him know I wanted more pets. I did this three times before I finally let him go to sleep.


January 22, 2018

New Food Part 3

Munchkin here,

The third flavor we tried is Lamb Burger. We loved this too. So much so that Monika is ordering more Cats in the Kitchen for us. 8 paws up.

January 20, 2018

New Food Part 2

Munchkin here,

The second Cats in the Kitchen flavor we tried is Kitty Gone Wild which is their wild salmon recipe. Obsidian and I both loved it.  He barely left me any to finish when he was done.

8 paws up!

January 18, 2018

New Treat

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent Bob a new treat for us to try.  It's Feline Greenies Smart Bites Hairball Control. Bob figured we would not like it because it was a hairball treat and we usually turn our noses up at such, but we all loved it.  Even Cosette and Haley liked them.  That gives them a whopping 20 paws up!


January 17, 2018

Meet Haylee

Hi, I'm Haylee. Bob just picked me up at my old foster and brought me here yesterday. I was feral and they TnR'd me, but I was sweet so they decided to foster me to get me used to humans so I can find a forever home. I can still be a little hissy sometimes, but if you give me pets I give back lots of purrs.
