Raena: Hey, Is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle!!! Mommy!!! I’s can’t hear mine’s self over the noisy lawn crew machines!!! I’s hate yellin’!!! (Raena jumps off the back of the chair onto the scratcher beside mommy’s chair and looks around) Hey sissy, where’d you come from? Can you not hear the lawn crew? I’s thought you would’a been unner the bed?.
Dezi: Me’s headin’ there Raena, me just wanted to grab a bite of brekky furst. See ya’.
Raena: Wait sissy!!! (Raena runs after Dezi who heads down the hall and UTB) C’mon, sissy, wait fur me. I’s wanna tell ya’ somethin’.
Dezi: Go away Raena, this is me’s spot.
Raena: But sissy, I’s wanna learn how to hunt fur intruders too.
Dezi: Go hunt somewhere else Raena, this is me’s spot.
Raena: (Dezi and Raena hear mommy calling them to come to breakfast. The lawn crew’s still making a lot of noise outside but the girls are hungry and start to slink towards the living room) Sissy, do we have to crouch down so low? I’s have longer legs than you do and this isn’t all that comfurtable.
Dezi: Nopawdy said you had to follow me Raena. Don’t you have somethin’ else you could be doin’?
Raena: Well yeah, sissy. We need to tell everypawdy ‘bout the noms we tried this month. You know, the ones we got from Chewy?
Dezi: Me ‘members Raena. Mommy thought we’d really like the Wellness Core Simply Shreds Grain Free food topper. It comes in 4 different flavors, Boneless Chicken, Salmon and Tuna, Tuna and Shrimp, and Chicken and Mackerel. A case of 12) 1.75 oz pouches costs $15.84. We got the Boneless Chicken to try since we’re not really fish eaters. Me really wishes these food companies would offur more of a variety in their non fish proteins. Anyways, let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout ‘em:
- Provides a boost of pure protein and hydration with just three ingredients—lean chicken, chicken broth, and water.
- Lean protein helps maintain healthy muscle mass while chicken broth helps keep your kitty hydrated and supports urinary health.
- Unadulterated, low calorie protein source with no fillers, grains, or starches, so it helps support a diet similar to that of your kitty’s primal ancestors.
- Convenient tear-away pouch makes it easy to top dry food or wet food, or give as a side dish or high-protein snack.
- Contains no grain, meat by-products, wheat, corn, soy, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
Chicken, Chicken Broth, Water Sufficient For Processing
585 kcal/kg, 29 kcal/pouch
Raena: As you can see, these Simply Shreds are pure protein. Us kitties thrive on meat proteins, so these would make a great addition to our diet, you know, as a snack or special treat. These are not considered a balanced meal. Besides, there’s no way 1.75 ounces would get us full. MOL Anyways, mommy says you should open the pouches over the sink, cuz they’re full of water/broth and can be a little messy.
Dezi: Me thinks the juice is the bestest pawrt, Raena. The chicken shreds are a bit stringy and dry. So, me would give these 2 paws up.
The juice is good, huh sissy?
Raena: I’s agree sissy. 2 paws up fur me too. Mommy gave ‘em a thumb up cuz they purrvide us with much needed hydration. Ifin you think you’d like to try these or any of the other flavors out, you can shop fur them right now at Chewy. As always, all orders $49.00 and up ship speedy and free and all other orders have a flat rate shipping of $4.95. Chewy has great customer service peeps who are available 24/7.
