My Cats are International Rock Stars B.F.F. OMG! @weruvapets #weruvagrade

Posted on August 29th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Product Reviews

My cats think they rule our house. And perhaps they do. There are some special accommodations they get just because they are cats. So, when International Cat Day became a thing, and they had a chance to get presents from a pet food brand – they got a little carried away. Okay, I admit – I got a little carried away! My cats became International Rock Stars!

I received a box of B.F.F. OMG! Bundle of treats, samples of cat food, and a few toys for my cats to try from WeRuVa. This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. See my disclosure for more details on why I post articles like this on my blog.

They have always been Divas!  #weruvagrade

 

Oh My Gravy! Weruva BFF OMG! ‘People Food for Cats’

When the box arrived, Noche was very curious about it. He loves to explore the packages I receive. I usually do not let him get involved in the unboxing, so I think he knew this was special. The first thing out of the box was a colorful ball for him to play with. He loves to chase balls and fetch. As I took things out of the box, he jumped inside the box! Then Sid came to see what the fuss was about.
I took out one of the pouches and opened it, immediately they wanted to eat it! They could smell the deliciousness. I had to get their dish and serve it right away, they couldn’t wait! They licked their plate clean and were so happy. It made me happy knowing I was giving them something they enjoyed so much and that it was good for them.
I want to share with you Weruva’s educational tips on how to give your BFF the nutrition they need to thrive like my Diva Cats!
With International Cat Day happening on August 8, and Happy Healthy Cat Month in September, now is the perfect time to address the ‘cat in the room’—and that’s your feline friend’s diet. I’ll be the first to admit my own cat’s diet isn’t ‘purr’fect. Sid’s problem is he loves to eat and even though he doesn’t seem to eat more than my other cats, he is much heavier. He is also very demanding and wants food all the time. I struggled to understand how I could address these issues. But then I realized I wasn’t alone—my cat was just experiencing one of the three most common cat concerns: picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues.
I learned about the Big 3 by partnering with Weruva [http://www.weruva.com/]—a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed “people food for cats” which is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day. It’s called B.F.F. OMG! (that stands for Best Feline Friend, Oh My Gravy), and it’s all about preventing these Big 3 Cat Concerns.
If your cat has any of these, you might want to consider changing their diet:
>> Is your cat picky? Picky eating is usually a problem with texture, since cats are carnivores whose tongues and teeth are perfectly evolved for meat-eating. It’s easy to see why a cat might dislike something without real shreds of meat—would you eat a steak with the texture of tapioca? Weruva’s food features these shreds of real meat right off the bone, which is why my cat took to it like a duck to water (or a cat to gravy)!
>> Got a fat cat? Sid doesn’t think he is fat – he is just more huggable and “puffy!” The problem is in the kibble. It’s filled with unnecessary carbs, which are almost impossible for cats to process (they don’t produce amylase, an enzyme which helps humans digest their food). Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! has no kibble to worry about because it’s 100% real meats in their true form. Sid really enjoys it!
>> UT-why? Urinary tract issues often stem from dehydration—even if you’re giving your cat plenty of water. In the wild, cats stay hydrated through the food they eat instead of what they drink. Cats are used to ‘eating’ their water—but most wet foods don’t have nearly enough hydration to keep them satisfied. All of the products in Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! line are over 85% hydration, which satisfies my cat’s hydration needs.
I love Weruva products because they are considered ‘people food for pets.’ I love to spoil my cats but I don’t feel comfortable giving them actual people food. I want to give them some chicken or tuna occasionally but I feel guilty about it. I don’t know what is healthy for them. The new line of B.F.F. OMG! cans and pouches feature land proteins like boneless and skinless white chicken breast, salmon, beef, duck, lamb and more. All recipes are grain, gluten, and carrageenan free. And if you are a BPA-free home, check out the pouches because they are are BPA-free. Best of all, my kitties love it!
Health isn’t just for humans, and I’m glad I took the time to learn how to feed my BFF properly. Even better, in the process, I found my kitty’s new favorite food. Sid especially likes Weruva’s Beef & Chicken Dinner in Gravy flavor, which you can read about at http://www.weruva.com/. You can also explore the whole B.F.F. OMG! lineup there, and find a flavor your cat will ‘paw’sitively adore, at Chewy.com

Life is an Adventure So Pop Into It @GaslampPopcorn #adventure

Posted on August 28th, 2017 by & filed under Discoveries, Everything Miz Meliz, I Love My LIfe, Product Reviews

Life is an Adventure…

This summer I went on a quick “long weekend” road trip with my seventeen year old son and his girlfriend. I needed some fresh air and a little breathing room. We went to Chama, New Mexico which is about a 14 hour drive from Los Angeles, California. (This is not a sponsored post, I received some Gaslamp Gourmet Popcorn to sample, all opinions are entirely my own. See my disclosure for more on why I post articles like this on my blog.)

On this journey of life, there are many paths. Some are paved and prepped for us. Many have traveled them and we know exactly where the road will lead. Some are new, and less traveled. Some paths are just being discovered. What path am I on?

As I look at the photos I took while on my short adventure, I am reminded that no matter what path I choose, there is always a comforting light to guide my way. The light may be seen in the smiling face of a loved one, the setting sun, or a gas lamp on a dusty road. There is always a light, all I have to do is look for it.

…Pop Into It!

This story was inspired by Gaslamp Popcorn Company. RMD Advertising provided me with two bags of Gaslamp brand popcorn for review which came just as I was leaving on the road trip. We took the bags along and gobbled up the amazing popcorn on the ride.

I highly recommend the Gaslamp Popcorn Company Kettle Corn – it is my favorite. For a bagged popcorn, it was very fresh and for a kettle corn that is sweetened, it was light and fluffy and not sticky at all. They have many gourmet flavors to choose from and are available everywhere! Check them out at Gaslamppopcorn.com

Gaslamp Gourmet popcorn is made in California! I’m a Native Californian, so I am proud of that fact, baby!

National Dog Day August 26

Posted on August 26th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Intentional

National Dog Day is Aug. 26, a date set aside to celebrate dogs, recognize the number that need to be rescued each year, and acknowledge our canine friends who work to save lives and bring comfort.

In honor of this dog-gone good holiday, Lucky the TurfMutt, a rescue dog himself and the official spokesdog of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) environmental education program – TurfMutt.com – encourages pet parents to reevaluate their family yard to ensure it’s appropriate for their furry friends.

The information here was provided by Four Leaf PR on Behalf of OPEI and TurfMutt. I was not compensated to post this on my blog. This is not a sponsored advertisement. See my disclosure to find out why I post articles like this on MizMeliz.com. 

Fall is a time for planting in advance of the next year’s spring season. Here are TurfMutt’s top five tips for ensuring the family yard is a place everyone can enjoy year-round.

 

TurfMutt Celebrates National Dog Day with Five Pet-Friendly Tips for the Family Yard
TurfMutt encourages pet parents to use National Dog Day (Aug. 26) to spruce up the family yard for pets:

 

 

 

Consider your dog’s needs
Each dog – senior, puppy, small, big, active breed or not-so-much – has different needs. Is your dog a water hound? Maybe you should include a splash pool or water fountain. Got a digger? A sand pit might work well to keep your dog entertained – and the mess contained. Does your dog love to run the perimeter of your yard? Design your yard with his path in mind. Does she have dog friends next door? Maybe an eye-level hole in the fence would keep her from barking. Jot down everything your dog needs from your family yard, then you map out your landscaping accordingly.

Keep your pet safe & sound
One of the most important pet features in your family yard is a secure fence – whether it’s made of wood, metal, vinyl or concrete. Inspect and fix your fence – or install one – so you can rest easy knowing your dog is safely within the boundary of your yard.

Include turfgrass
Turfgrass is safe – unlike concrete, asphalt or hard ground – and offers your pet a soft, cool spot to lie down, even during the hottest conditions. It also creates a comfortable backyard playground, and provides a place to take care of business – just be sure to clean up regularly! There are many types of turfgrass that can handle “ruff-housing” from dogs and kids alike. Check your climate zone to make sure you’re selecting an appropriate grass species for where you live. (Another bonus benefit is grass is very good at capturing and filtering rainwater.)

Select the right plants
You’ll want to have a balance of grass, flower plants, trees and shrubs in your family yard. Including this mix of species will not only be beautiful, it will also help support biodiversity. Remember, nature starts in your own backyard! Keeping your climate zone in mind, select appropriate landscaping for the areas you’ve identified in your yard. Around walking paths, for instance, you’ll want to include sturdy, yet soft foliage that can stand up to puppy and people traffic without scratching. Use elevated boxes and patio planters for more delicate flowering plants.

Avoid toxic plants 
One last word of important advice – there are some plants and shrubs that are poisonous to dogs. You’ll want to avoid these in your outdoor living room entirely. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has a list of toxic plants that you should refer to when shopping for your family yard.
