Over the past six months, I’ve learned a lot about being a good cat mom. Before then, I hadn’t owned a cat since I was a little girl. Back then it was the 1980s when we let them procreate and run amok outside. The only cat from childhood I still hold close to my heart was named Smoky, who was steel gray with piercing blue eyes. He was my baby, and when he passed, my little heart broke.
Fast forward thirty-two years when my friend continued to find a stray kitten on her front porch. Her life circumstances did not lend themselves to her family owning a cat, so she asked if my boys and I wanted him. Even though I knew it would be an additional responsibility, I decided having a pet would be good for all three of us.
We took in this little cute kitten and named him Oliver Twist Kitty. At first, Oliver was a bit wild, trying to adjust to the world inside a house and with humans, but once we all got into a groove with one another, life has been full and golden with our furry family member.
When I was invited to take on the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge here on the blog, I was all about it. I was curious to try a new food with Oliver and observe any differences in his health and behavior.
In a minute, I’ll tell you about our experience with the challenge, but right now, I want to tell you why you should participate as well.
Do you like free stuff? Do you want your sweet cat to be healthy, energetic and happy? Of course you do. I encourage you to take the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge to see what differences you see in your pet. Here’s how you get started:
Take the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge
*Save on ONE (1) 2.8-lb. or larger bag of Purina ONE® Dry Cat Food, any variety, while supplies last.The challenge runs year-round. All you need to do is visit www.walmart.com/purinaone, then head to your local Walmart to redeem your offer. Also, you can hover over the below image, to purchase.
If you visit Walmart in person, the food is very easy to find. The brand’s packaging is always bright and colorful. For me, on a single income budget, I appreciate the fact that Walmart offers lower prices than some other retailers.
Before taking the challenge myself, I’d been using a different brand entirely. Oliver seemed happy enough with the food but not ecstatic, so I was anxious to try Purina ONE®. I’d learned some great information about this brand, including:
- Crafted in Purina-owned facilities in the USA
- Natural with added vitamins, minerals and nutrients
- Every ingredient has a purpose
- Veterinarian recommended
- 0% fillers
- No poultry by-product meal, artificial colors or preservatives
The first thing I noticed was Oliver’s excitement around mealtime. Very early on in our 28-day challenge, I could tell Oliver loved his new food. The minute he heard it hit the bowl, he ran over and began chowing down. The boys and I also noticed a difference in his energy level and behavior, which I fully feel was influenced by his new food. He seemed energetic, but in a calm, happy away, as opposed to his typical restless personality. Throughout our entire challenge, I could tell the food was supporting a healthy feline life for our cute pet.
It has been a really fun month taking on the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge and watching Oliver’s responses to everything. The boys and I absolutely love our little kitty. The three of us have had to endure a number of changes over the past several years and Oliver provides much-needed entertainment and comic relief. I know life can get super busy and it’s a necessity to focus on the humans in the family but every now and then, have some fun attending to the needs of your pets. Believe me, you’ll be glad you did!
