From today until Wednesday night, you can enter to win The Honest Kitchen’s Steamy Pups, a tasty treat for cats and dogs. I know, these look a lot like the Ice Pups I gave away a few months ago – and they are. It’s true! In summer, they’re Ice Pups because you can freeze them. In winter, Steamy Pups!

I’ve tasted these things in the past, and I have to say, they’re pretty good! Mix in a little warm water and you have a tasty, grain-free broth. ***We were not compensated in any way for this post, other than to have The Honest Kitchen provide a free box as a giveaway to our readers.***

Enter with Rafflecopter now! I’ll announce the winner on Thanksgiving Day!

Cat Clubs For Everyone!

You Guys!

I’m writing to tell you that my brothers and sisters and I have all been accepted into really cool cat clubs!

First, Rocky and I have been accepted into The Tabby Cat Club! This is really exciting news for both of us. We haven’t been formally inducted yet, but will be soon! Go check them out and see what’s up in the world of tabbies.

Next, Mrs. Peabody was asked to join The Ladies of Autumn! It’s a fabulous club for torties, calicos, and torbies. You can see her introductory post here!

Mrs Peabody, She's not my best friend but I'll admit she's pretty sexy.

And Niles is now an official member at House Panthers! You can read about him here and even see a photo of him hanging out with a rat. He’s a very accepting little soul, and House Panthers is a great place to learn about and appreciate black cats. As you may or may not know, black cats are the least adopted color of all kitties, so any help they can get is worthwhile and appreciated!

So, please enjoy these neat new blogs that we’re now a part of.

Also, please congratulate Ms. Phoebe, a wonderful special needs kitty who won the Ice Pups from The Honest Kitchen! She and her pup friend Sophie will be enjoying them shortly. Their mom Beth E. will be looking on with envy.

Love,

Crepes.

Review & Giveaway: The Honest Kitchen’s ICE PUPS!

You Guys!

The Honest Kitchen sent me a free box of Ice Pups to review. Yes, I know I’m not a pup, but we have one in the house, so the demographic isn’t entirely biased towards cat. We cats here also figured we’d give it a whirl to see what it was all about. So, without further ado, let’s get on with our taste test!

Ice Pups

The Package

Ice Pups is a powdered product that comes in 16 individual packets. The ingredients list is: Dehydrated chicken, turkey, whey, dandelion, asparagus, watercress, honey, and parsley. I looked it up and, according to petmd.com, dandelion is on the list of ten herbs to improve cat health, having anti-inflammatory properties. Excellent.

The directions say you can make this cold, which requires you to whisk it with warm water and then chill it, or you can freeze it into actual pupsicles, OR, you can serve it as a Steamy Pups when it’s a little chilly outside.

We tasted it warm. MomFOD whisked it with a fork, and she had to whisk hard because it stays a little clumpy. The whisking action brought forth the taste testers, who were eager to get started.

Rocky was the first tester to arrive on scene.

One packet made 8 ounces of liquid, which was promptly consumed by the five of us. We repeatedly switched bowls to make sure no one else got a better tasting one. Turns out, they all tasted the same.

Five bowls for five tasters.

Five bowls for five tasters.

In the end, it was all consumed within minutes, though the package says we have two days to drink it after mixing. I think it’s an excellent product to help get extra fluids into your dog or cat, particularly if they’re dehydrated, ill, or have constipation like my brother Rocky. Maybe that’s why he was so eager to try it out.

Let me taste or I'll perish!

So, we give Ice Pups TWO STUMPS UP!
