Cat-tacular Nutrish News!

This post contains sponsored links from Rachael Ray Nutrish.

Hey everyone! Smudge here.

Okay, so you know how the Rachael Ray lady asked Mayzie to be a Nutrish Ambassadog?

Mayzie sash

Well, that was all well and good but, ahem, between you and me, it kind of went to that big brindle head of hers. It got to where she refused to take off the ambassadog sash and she was always shining up her tiara. I know, I know. Doesn’t seem like Mayzie, right? But when there’s a tiara involved, strange things can happen.

Then the other day, the phone rings and guess who’s on the other line? Rachael Ray! (Note from mom: it was an email and it wasn’t from Miss Ray but around here, one learns not to fight it.)

So Mayzie’s all, “Oh! Miss Rachael is calling for ME! Wait a sec while I shine up my tiara.” But as it turns out, no! RR (that’s what I call her…RR) wants to talk to ME.

See, it turns out that she has developed a new food called NUTRISH for CATS and she wondered if I, Smudge, would be interested in being a Nutrish DiploCat!! Well, of course, I said yes!

I just went and found mom’s old graduation cap which totally makes me look uber dignified. Ranger says that DiploCats don’t wear graduation caps but how would he know? I mean, he’s a DOG.

Anyway, we’re all super excited about this new cat food around here because…

1. It’s Super Wholesome

RR’s food was inspired by recipes that SHE makes for herself! Plus, it’s got yummy and healthy stuff like real meat and it doesn’t have by-products, fillers, or junk ingredients so it’s seriously good stuff.

2. It Comes in Wet AND Dry

Now here’s the thing…I REALLY love dry food. But then we found out I have a stone sitting around in one of my kidneys. (I have NO idea how it got there. I did NOT eat it, I swear.) So the vet guy says, “Smudge needs more water to keep that stone where it belongs and to keep others from showing up. You ought to think about adding wet food to his diet.” Which was A-OK by me. So it’s nice that RR came out with both kinds.


3. Rachael’s Rescue Rocks!

As Mayzie has told you in the past, RR donates some of the proceeds from the sale of her food to help animals in need. So far, Rachael’s Rescue has donated more than $6MILLION to help less fortunate four-leggers. So that means whenever you buy Nutrish food, YOU are helping make a difference in the lives of others. Pretty nifty, huh?

4. You Can Find It Right in Your Grocery Store

Okay, I don’t really care all that much about this but Mom seems to think it’s super duper pawsome that she can just pick up our food when she goes to pick up THEIR food. Humans get excited about crazy things sometimes.

Anyway, to find out where your human can buy it, click on this linkie here.

5. They gave us a coupon to give to you!

Now, as we all know, humans LOVE to save those green papers. So Nutrish gave us a coupon to give to you. All you have to do is click on this linkie – get a coupon here – and I’m sure it’ll just make your human’s day!

Whew…okay, you let me know if you have any questions. And in the meantime, I’m gonna go take a nap. Who knew being a DiploCat would be so exhausting? YAWN!

My 5th Gotcha Day

Yep! That’s right! Five years ago today, I got My Most Perfect Family That Ever Was.

Here’s a picture of me from that first day…


Gosh, I kinda look confused or totally freaked out mildly concerned or something, don’t I?

I wish I could tell Then-Me that I didn’t have anything to worry about. I would say, “Then-Me, the next five years are gonna be better than you can pawsibly dream. They’re gonna be filled with all sorts of great things like…
