When I was growing up, we had a bit of a civil war going on in our house. We had the “dog” people and we had the “cat” people. My mom and dad raised pedigree Irish Setter dogs, so they were considered “Camp Dog.”
One of my brothers and one of my sisters was also part of “Camp Dog”, while my other 2 bothers and sister and I were “Camp Cat” all the way. Virtually all of my childhood, I was forced to be part of “Camp Dog”, but I yearned for the days I could make my own “Camp Cat!”
You can imagine as soon as I was living on my own, I was “Camp Cat” all the way! I have had some awesome cats over the past 25 years. Our latest, Hazel and Meep, are two sisters we rescued 5 years ago. The mommy cat abandoned these adorable babies at about 4 weeks old. We had to hand feed them until they were old enough to eat on their own.
My mom and dad only fed our dogs Purina, so it seemed logical to carry on that tradition with my cats. I have been feeding them Purina Friskies® since they were able to eat solid food.
About a year ago, I started introducing organic foods into our diet. It didn’t occur to me until recently that I should do the same for my cats. I am very picky about what I feed the cats, so if I was going to make a change in their food, it had to be Purina because I trust that brand.
Imagine my excitement when I heard about the new Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food products. With it’s being natural and offering so many great tasting flavors, Meep and Hazel were sure to love it!
Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food is exclusively available at PetSmart and I easily found the Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food products. You can choose from 30 delicious recipes, of which, 24 grain-free varieties are available.
All the recipes are made with real fish or poultry, there are no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and the recipes are 100% complete and balanced for adult cats like Meep and Hazel. The Wet recipes are available in Chowder, in Broth, with Toppers, in Gravy and Paté, which is the favorite of my girls.
With so many delicious combinations, choosing which food to buy won’t be a hard choice with Muse! I was able to choose from such flavors as natural chicken, salmon and shrimp (Hazel’s favorite), turkey and spinach (Meep’s favorite), chicken and carrot, and ocean whitefish and mackerel.
With the Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food you don’t have to choose between natural nutrition and food that tastes great. Your cat can have both when you choose Muse. Let me tell you; natural has never been so delicious! Put Muse to the test with their clean plate guarantee. We did and I had two clean plates in about 5 minutes! Meep and Hazel acted like they had not eaten in weeks!
So, what do you do with your empty Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food cans? Do you toss them into the trash? STOP!
