TOO-NA TOO-NA!! #ChewyInfluencer

Disclosure: We received Purina Pro Plan Seafood Favorites Variety Pack (Canned Cat Food, 3-oz, case of 24) - for free in exchange for an honest review. Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat only shares information we believe would be of interest to our readers. The content is ours - neither Purina nor Chewy are responsible for the contents of this post.

What did we try from Chewy this month?!? It's our third month of being part of the Influencer program. To find our past reviews as part of the program, you may follow this tag: #ChewyInfluencer. Our first review of May is for Purina Pro Plan Seafood Favorites Variety Pack.

Our second review is a surprise and will be published Friday!

BC: Bear Cat
EM: Ellie Mae
MK: Momma Kat

BC: Is that the Chewy box for this month?!?
EM: CHEWY? The Chewy box is here? Why would someone make a chewy box? Does it taste good?
BC: CHEWY, the COMPANY. Remember? We get to try a couple items a month from them in exchange for our honest review.
EM: So the box isn't chewy?
BC: Move out of the way. I'll handle this.

EM: But I want to know what we got too! That's a BIG box! There must be something good if the box isn't chewy.
BC: What'd we get this month?
EM: Is there ... FOOD?!

BC: {mockingly} Is there FOOD?!? Fatso still thinks she's going to starve to death. What ELSE would there be but food?
MK: This month we got one item that's NOT food.
BC: WHAT?!?

EM: Oh no!! We're gonna starve! Awww ...
BC: Speak for yourself. I'M going to starve ... you're going to be a less-huge piggy.
EM: I'm not THAT big ...
BC: "Not that big." They can see you on satellites! The vet said you're a couple POUNDS overweight. Phht. At my worst, it was a matter of OUNCES.
EM: Maybe I've got pounds of personality. I just like food.
BC: "Like" "LIKE?!?!" You eat like you're eating for you AND a litter of kittens.
EM: Oh, sure. Cut a girl when she's down. Remind me that I can't have kittens.
BC: WHAT?!?!
EM: I. CAN'T. HAVE ...
BC: I know what that means!
EM: Well, you ARE a little slow. Bless your heart.
BC: Oh, shut up, Smellie! 
EM: I think I'd be a good Momma. I'd cuddle with my kittens 24/7 and teach them how to be good cats and keep their claws and fangs to themselves. I excel at love and good moods.
BC: And I have to listen to you trill along merrily all day and night. I think you like to hear the sound of your own voice.
EM: I'm just happy and like to talk to myself!
BC: PHHT. Because no one else listens.
EM: I have food ... and people who love me ... and great toys ... and food ...
BC: You already said food!
EM: Well, I DO have two bowls ...
BC: ONE OF THOSE IS MY BOWL!
EM: Not if I get there first.
BC: I'm going to kill you and bury your mangled body where no one will ever find you. Then again, hiding a body of your size is difficult ...
MK: ENOUGH! 
EM: I think I got to the ...
BC: HEY! Keep your mouth ...
EM: BLECH!!! This box isn't chewy. 
BC: MOMMA! Hurry up, Momma! Ellie's so hungry she's trying to eat the box!
EM: This is the most disgusting food I've ever ...

BC: You never listen to me! THAT'S THE BOX our order came in, STUPID! The food is over here!  
EM: I'm not stupid. YOU'RE stupid.
MK: HEY! Are you two ready for your wet food treat? I'm excited to try this brand! Purina Pro Plan has a great reputation.
BC: This isn't HEALTHY is it?

MK: Purina Pro Plan has a great reputation as a 100% complete and balanced diet, SPECIFICALLY developed to reinforce a healthy, active lifestyle for pets.
BC: It tastes nasty, doesn't it?
EM: I'll eat your portion if you don't want ...
BC: Don't even THINK about it. 
EM: But you said ...
MK: This variety pack contains three different varieties ... seafood stew, tuna, and salmon and rice. First, we'll try the seafood stew variety.
{Pause}
MK: Look at that rich gravy! And the generous size of the chunks. You guys are gonna LOVE this!
BC: {AHEM} I can't see anything because the plates are on the counters. You say I'm not allowed on the counters!
MK: Oops. Sorry about that. Here you go, Bear.
BC: {sniffing the plate} Where's the food?
MK: Right there on your plate!
BC: This isn't food! There are ... VEGETABLES. Vegetables aren't real food.

MK: That's the most disappointing feature of this product. So many companies promote fruits and vegetables as part of their formulas - but cats do not require them for balanced nutrition. In fact, many fruits and vegetables are toxic to cats. Even so, the added veggies probably mainly function to make the person feel better about feeding the food and not to address a cat's nutritional requirements.
BC: Yuck. I'm not eating this.
EM: {perking up from her plate} Wait ... Bear's not eating this?!? What?! What's wrong with it?
BC: Phht. Where do I even start.
EM: Awww. And I thought it tasted good! 
BC: THAT. Is. NOT. food!
EM: Of course it's food ... seaFOOD.
{Ellie walks away from the plate reluctantly}
BC: SEAFOOD STEW, indeed. I don't SEE any food!
MK: You've trained me well, Bear. Any label that doesn't specify the protein is probably not something you'll want to eat.
BC: What's in "seafood stew" anyway? I want to try the tuna.
EM: {perking up} Did someone say ... TUNA?!?
MK: Bear, you didn't even TRY the seafood stew!
BC: Two words. SEAFOOD STEW.
MK: Yes, I admit the vagueness is a bit sketchy.
BC: Hand over the tuna and no one will get hurt.
MK: Bear, it's the exact same food - with the exact same vegetables - just a different flavor. 
EM: It was yummy.

BC: Whose side are you on?
EM: Err ...
{Pause}
EM: We want ... TUNA! We want ... TUNA!! We want ... TUNA!!! Two four six eight, what do we appreciate? TUNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BC: You're really good at being annoying.
EM: Thank you! You're good at being a jerk.
BC: I guess I had that coming.
EM: MOMMA!!! TOO-NA TOO-NA!! What do we want?
BC: TUNA!
EM: When do we want it?
BC: NOW!
MK: Good grief. Good thing you two usually can't figure out how to work together. Alright, alright. Bear won't eat seafood stew ... and Ellie will but stops when she sees Bear isn't eating. I don't have great hopes because the ingredient lists of both flavors are so similar ... 
EM: Two words ... TOO-NA!
BC: That's one word, moron.
EM: More on what? A cracker?
BC: Unless you stop bugging me, they'll be more of your innards strewn throughout the house.
MK: The tuna variety has the same rich gravy and perfectly sized chunks.
BC: Less talking and more feeding. I'm almost SKELETAL! And you're TALKING about the food instead of giving it to us!
MK: If you were skeletal, you would've eaten whatever you got.
BC: Phht. I'm still a CAT you know.
MK: As much as curiosity killed the cat ... stubbornness didn't help.
EM: I'm not stubborn! I'm a NICE cat!
BC: Stop kissing up or I'll take off your brown nose.
EM: HA! I don't HAVE a brown nose! My nose is black!
MK: Alright. Tuna.
{Bear sniffs the plate}
BC: OOOOOH! FOOD!
{Bear starts chowing down}
MK: You probably should breathe ...
BC: NOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOMNOM.

EM: {looking up from her plate} Maybe you should just let him not breathe. One life down ... eight to go.
BC: Phht. NOM NOM ... I've already ... NOM NOM ... used up ... NOM NOM ... more than a few ... NOM NOM ... lives being my ... NOM NOM ... glorious self.
EM: EWW! Don't talk with your mouth full!
MK: You've used up more than a few of your lives ... Like the times you thought you could fly?
BC: HEY! If a stupid squirrel can do it ...
MK: They don't ACTUALLY fly, Bear.
BC: Then why are they called FLYING squirrels. DUH!
MK: Oh. And the time you got the plastic bag stuck around your body.
EM: Hahahahahaha.
MK: I have pictures of that one too.
BC: DON'T YOU DARE! I was FRAMED!
EM: You mean ... BAGGED?!
BC: Oh, SHUT UP! 
EM: YOU shut up.
BC: Do you mind?
EM: Not really.
BC: Wait a ... you're trying to get me talking so you can eat my plate of food too!
EM: You DO get more than me. You can share.
BC:  I'm trying to finish my tuna-y goodness here!

MK: Looks like everyone's happy!
EM: {AHEM}. I'm out of food!
MK: Let me rephrase that ... Bear's happy ... and you enjoyed the food too.
EM: While it lasted ...
MK: As I was saying, Chewy is easy to love: they have a wide selection of QUALITY pet products, freshness is guaranteed, and they offer fast shipping and easy returns on all orders. With orders over $49, one to two day shipping is FREE! After hearing so many bloggers talk about Chewy's fast shipping, I was eager to see the difference for myself ... and sure enough! FAST! Much faster than any other seller I've encountered. Though my favorite part is 24/7 customer service. How many times have I been up late at night shopping for cat supplies, had a question, but couldn't ask it because chat wasn't available?

NOTE: Both cats licked clean their plates of the tuna flavor and salmon and rice flavors. I've served both again - and same thing ... plates licked clean. YAY!

Interested in trying Purina Pro Plan Seafood Favorites Variety Pack (Canned Cat Food, 3-oz, case of 24)? Go visit Chewy and order a pack for your favorite feline!

  1. With 24hr delivery thats one really fast tuna you have there. We agree about fancy veg additives in food, as it is usually for bulking and seldom of real benefit and disguises lack of good ingredients. Lets face it a mouse doesn't have them nor a tuna, well not unless they been to a fancy restaurant the night before. MOL Sounds like you picked a winner with the Tuna and salmon, around here if it doesn't have fur, or have moo'd at some point (that includes cream MOL) it doesn't cut it.... Do Chewy do mouse and beef variety, I wonder?
    Great review, thanks Bear

  6. Thank you for your reviews of products you receive from Chewy. We are always trying to find a wet food or dry food to start giving to our little ones. I hope they are still licking their plates clean with all that delicious food coming in. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

  7. A great review - and the best ones are of free stuff. But why, why, do food makers add in stuff like veggies in cat food? Or cheese, for Bast's sake? Seriously, don't felines have enough risk of constipation?? PS: EM, you have a beautiful, regal, satiny nose. Be proud!

  12. This used to be one of Sam's favorite foods, until it wasn't any more! One of the last foods we gave her had whole peas in it. That never made sense to me, and she rarely ate them!
    We hope you too continue to like this food...well, maybe it's best if Ellie doesn't love it TOO much! :)

  14. Great review, guys! Tuna is always a hit in our house, but we only give it as a treat occasionally. Oh, the horrors, right?!?

  15. Wouldn’t it be nice if boxes really were chewy and tasty?! Glad you guys liked the tuna flavor!

  16. Those turned out to be good food nom selections for Bear and Ellie! Mom is kind of stingy with the moist foods. She says I can't have them all the time, 'cause I get the itchies (no matter which brands). I feel my tummy gurgling for moist noms after reading your post... Ellie, I think my humans are starving me too... Hugs! Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

    1. Momma wants to feed us more wet food - but gets stumped at how to facilitate it based on a schedule vs. free feeding.

  17. Would you believe we don't like tuna? Mommy can't understand that. We keep trying to tell her that girls can be fickle when they want to be. It's purrfectly 'ceptable. We're glad you enjoyed it.
