Chewy Does It Again

My monthly samples from Chewy arrived yesterday.  Allow me to give you a guided tour.

I am determined to find a treat that Rupert will enjoy.  This might fill the bill, although a final and definitive decision has yet to be made.  Sometimes he'll take one, sometimes he won't.  A mood thing, I suppose.

These treats were unanimously approved of and consumed.
In all the years I've had cats, I've never had a treat that someone wouldn't eat.  Everyone went for these, except, of course, Madeleine, who can't go off her diabetes diet.  Seeing everyone else eating perplexes her;  she called a meeting to discuss it with me:
You make a compelling case, Sweets, but doctors' orders and all. . .

This was fun:
It's an "interactive" feeder, dispensing food as your cat plays with it.  You can adjust the amount of food dispensed, if you need to.

Erin and Riley worked on this.  It took them a few seconds to realize what was going on, but they got the hang of it, and swatted the ball back and forth between them.  Like the Snacky Mouse toy they got a while back, they seemed to thoroughly enjoy the "hunt."

Thanks to Chewy for allowing me to test some of their products monthly.  I receive no compensation for my reviews.  The opinions are my own, and I describe only my pets' experiences with the items.


  1. We took the ball toy/treat dispenser too. I like to fill it at night so they can hunt and snack downstairs if they get hungry. Fez gets rough with the other cats when he is hungry...
    he is still growing. Fireman and I were shopping at a mall today and someone had a toy yorkie in her purse. Im sorry. I feel totally in love with it. How bad can a few teaspoons of pee in the house be ???? fireman maintained his NO WAY stance

  2. Chewy is the best. That's where we get all our pet food for Rosie. They sent me a hand-written christmas card. That is the best!!!

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
