Better Late. . .

I let time get away from me this month with regard to my commitment to Chewy.  It dawned on me one day recently that I hadn't gotten my e-mail for selecting the samples I wanted to try.  One e-mail later, that was corrected, and yesterday, a box was delivered to my doorstep.

First up, Hill's Science Diet dental dog chews.
Rupert has very bad breath.  Rupert also has never been a treats sort of dog, but I was hoping to kill both birds here.

The bag I was sent was for medium-sized dogs, so I had to carve out little pieces for him to try.  He sniffed at a piece, but refused it.  An utter strikeout.  Fortunately, my daughter's housemates have a dog that these can be passed along to.

Secondly, Gourmet Carnivore cat food.
As thoroughly as Rupert disliked the dental chews, the two cats here who eat canned food dove into this.  They (Lily and Erin) are both gravy lovers;  they will lick the gravy from their food first, then eat the pieces.  And this food has all kinds of gravy.  They were in Feline Heaven.  Another winner!

Chewy allows me to receive free samples of its products each month in return for honest reviews of what I receive.  There is no remuneration whatsoever.


  1. I was wondering about the Science Diet treats. Everyone at our house acts like Greenies products have crack in them, and inhale them. I wondered if SD had the same effect. Maybe not ...

  2. I didn't try to dental treats. My cats think Beachside crunch is crack.

  3. You frogged the shrug? So sorry to hear that your cables were misbehaving! Love this cowl though and am going to check out the pattern right now!

  4. Hmmmm, I thought my post was on your cowl post. Sorry!

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
