National Kitten Day was celebrated on July 10. On that day, on behalf of my cats, Harry and Hermione, I posted a contest for free coupons good for 12-count variety packs of Purina Fancy Feast® brand wet cat food, any variety (up to $11.99 value) as well as a photo op for the winners’ cats. The coupons were provided by Purina along with information on the advantages of including wet food in cats’ diets.
Although many cats prefer dry food, wet food is an important part of a cat’s diet. Here’s why according to nutritionists at Purina:
Water makes up 60 per cent of a cat’s body, so it’s important for them to stay hydrated. The moisture in wet food gives them additional hydration because each lap from their water bowl only gives them about 3/100 of a teaspoon.
Wet food is also high in protein which helps maintain the muscle mass that they lose as they age.
Wet food is available in many different varieties and flavors that may appeal to even finicky felines. It is also easily digestible and contains all the vital nutrients and elements for a cat’s diet.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Below are the winning entries.
Also, mark your calendars for my two free book giveaways from July 19 to 22. During that time, to celebrate Harry and Hermione’s first birthdays, you can get your free books here: mybook.to/RTD mybook.to/cc4
Also, in honor of Harry and Hermione turning 1, I’m hosting a fundraiser for the Golden Paws Society, the rescue from which they came. The fundraiser has already started, and it would be great if you could contribute any amount to help other kittens and cats find homes. https://www.facebook.com/donate/1954368081329994/
Also, one of the winners of the Kitten Day Contest operates a rescue that is greatly in need of help. Any amount you can donate to her GoFundMe campaign will be much appreciated. https://www.gofundme.com/f/lynnes-kitty-rescue
