 When I said I sort of cheated on this Chewy review, it's because I already knew what the verdict was going to be on these Bonito flakes.

Riley came to us with her toys and litter box and papers and a cannister of Cat-Man-Doo flakes.  For a while there, before she got used to living here, they were just about all she would eat.  Then, the other cats picked up on the fish scent when I put them out for her, and, before I knew it, they were all listening for that top to come off the cannister.  Are you familiar with the cat stampede phenomenon?

So, I could have written this review on the day I asked for the sample.  Still, let me make it clear that my cats adore these.

Also let me make clear that I receive no monetary compensation from for my reviews.  They are based on my own experiences with their products, and are honest reflections thereof.


  1. I haven't tried these, but I did buy flaky treats the one time for our kitties, and they looked at me like I was trying to kill them. Cats. Go figure.

  2. We have dog stampedes here when DH rattles the treat can. One cat usually strolls over, too, and politely asks for a tiny piece.

  3. They are so flaky though. MIne love them too. I just dont like how they roll away under things and I think they smell then...

#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?
