Did you know that litter box issues are the #1 behavioral reason that cats are abused, neglected and end up in shelters? Dr. Elsey, a feline-only veterinarian for 35 years, has aimed to reduce this startling statistic by helping cats live happier, healthier lives with the creation of Cat Attract™ Litter. Now, Dr. Elsey is also offering a delicious food for our carnivorous furry friends. The cleanprotein™ kibble diet helps your cat maintain an ideal body weight and mass, allowing for an active lifestyle. As a mom to three rescue cats and a person who is passionate about animal nutrition, I’m always interested in learning about healthy food options for my babies. Allow me to introduce you to Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein diet, which was veterinary-formulated to help promote a healthy lifestyle for your beloved kitty.

In today’s world, we are surrounded by a sea of controversy. With technology running the modern consumer’s life, debates about every subject, big or small, are constantly taking place. Just as human parents battle each other on the best way to raise children, pet parents tend to be at each other’s throats for the same reason. The way we feed our animals is often at the center of controversy in the pet space, and it’s no doubt because of the marketing that we’re are subjected to 24/7. Since Millennials are having more pets than kids, the pet industry is now a billion dollar industry. We spend money on our pets like people do on human kids. And just as a human parent could fall into the advertising trap, the same is the case for many pet parents.
There are several myths floating around regarding pet food. The options available for dogs and cats are endless. As human diets change, those patterns are being translated to our pets. I had the privilege of speaking with “America’s Veterinarian” Dr. Marty Becker about myths surrounding the pet food industry. We discussed what the myths are, why they are common and how we can educate pet parents about the truth.
Being smack dab in the middle of the Millennial generation, I’m surrounded by pet parents who want what’s best for their beloved animals. Luckily premium pet foods are mainstream and easily available to the general public. But what is also becoming mainstream is the treatment of all animals, not just our domesticated pals. As a society we are more aware of where our planet is headed, so sustainably sourced materials are more common. Since humans are focusing on better food choices, we are translating that focus to our pets. Tender & True pet food is an excellent premium pet food choice if you’re looking for a natural, nutritious and humanely farmed option.
My dogs will eat anything. If it’s put in front of them, they will eat it. My cats, on the other hand, are super picky. They always have been. Sadie will enjoy licking wet food on occasion, but other than that, she and Joey prefer the same old kibble every single day. I’ve been wanting to add some sort of variation to their meals, so Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Minis were worth a shot. Turns out, they are a big hit! What’s better?! These minis are all-natural freeze dried bits that add taste and health benefits to my cat’s meals.
