This picture is a pretty typical snapshot of my daily view while trying to prepare dinner…
Not only do I get dinner demands coming from both of my kids, but I also get them from my third “child” Rocky. (The cat.)
He knows when I’m in the kitchen late in the day, it’s his dinner time too! If he can’t get my attention by meowing or batting at my legs, he will jump right up onto the empty barstool next to the kids and let me know! He will not be ignored!
Rocky loves the Meow Mix Tender Centers® Salmon & Turkey Flavors dry cat food we’ve been giving him, but he’s a much happier cat with the occasional addition of the Meow Mix® Real Tuna & Shrimp in Sauce wet cat food.
Just last Saturday, my daughter woke my hubby and me up at 7 am to inform us that Rocky had gotten out onto the upstairs balcony and was now walking around on the roof. (How did this even happen? Who knows, its another case of that mysterious, “Not Me.”)
Luckily I arrived just in time to stop my young son from climbing over the rail to get him. (ACK! That is definitely a statement that will make a parent jump out of bed faster than any alarm clock. Time for a childproof lock on that door!)
They had already attempted to entice Rocky over with his regular food with no luck. Rocky had no plans to budge from his bird’s-eye view of the bird feeder.
Luckily, I had a couple of containers on hand of his favorite Meow Mix® Real Tuna & Shrimp. (I have to keep these hidden or the kids would give him the entire container at every meal.) We opened the container and Rocky smelled the wet food almost immediately.
Thankfully he came right over for breakfast and my hubby was able to grab him.
I’ve been so happy with the Fresh Step and Meow Mix litter and food, that I’m giving away a $25 gift card to Walmart so one lucky reader can try the Fresh Step Fast Acting liter and Meow mix for free! (I’ve definitely been a very happy Momma by having with a less stinky litter box since switching to the Fresh Step® Fast Acting litter.)
