Bed-hopping, horseys and a #ChewyInfluencer review

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

MK: La de dah ... showers are the best! Time to finish my ...

{Pause as Momma sees Bear in her desk chair}
BC: What are YOU looking at? Haven't you seen a cat in a chair before?

MK: That's my desk chair!
BC: Looks like it's MY desk chair.
MK: But you haven't lain in my desk chair for over a year!
BC: You mean my chair? I own it even when I don't possess it.
MK: I suppose you're not going to move without drawing blood.
BC: It IS my chair. You finally got something right.
MK: I suppose you expect me to pull up another chair to work at my desk.
BC: Keep going! You're on a roll, smarty-pants!
EM: {walking into the room} What are you doing up there, dumbo?
BC: What does it look like, dimwit?
EM: But that's Momma's desk chair! I sit in her lap up there! You have to move so I can have my lap!!! Momma just got a shower and I haven't had a lap in twenty-three minutes!
MK: SEE?!? You haven't been in my desk chair since we adopted Ellie.
BC: I forgot how comfortable this chair was.
MK: Or how much it annoys me when you lay in it?
BC: No. I could never forget that! Hahahahahaha.
EM: MOMMA!!! LAP!!! I need a lap!
MK: Don't worry, Ellie. I can just pull up another chair and you can have your lap.
BC: She's so easily pleased. Oh, the simple life of a simple mind.
BC: Around here, it's more like, "who are you calling NOT simple?"
MK: Bear, there's no need to insult us.
BC: Need? No. Joy? That's a different story.
MK: I don't understand your sudden shift in beds. You've bed hopped!
BC: I'm not sure what you're implying ... but I'm faithful to my torties!
BC: And my ginger ladycat.
MK: No, we need to talk about your bed hopping. All of a sudden, you're sleeping in completely different places than we're used to. And you haven't barfed in your old beds so what's up? All of a sudden, you refuse to use your old beds.
BC: SHEESH! Can't a cat have a mind of his own?! I saw you sleeping on the couch earlier this week. You usually don't sleep there.
MK: Okay. Okay. I see your point. It just seems like overnight you quit using your shark bed, the cat cube, and my bed in favor of my desk chair, the bed in the second bedroom, and with the banana as a pillow. I mean, you've slept in all those places before ... it's just been at least a year since I've seen you in these places.

BC: {AHEM} MY desk chair.
MK: Right. 
BC: And I quit sleeping on the bed in the second bedroom because you stopped napping there!
MK: And you kept pulling the stuffing out of the comforter.
BC: Oh, yeah! But the comforter just blew up! I almost died! Hmmm ... I'm sure I can find that hole again ...
MK: Don't you dare!
BC: Well, now you know I HAVE to.
MK: Great.
{Momma works at her computer in a second chair while Bear sleeps on Momma's ... err ... Bear's desk chair}
{Momma doesn't notice, but Bear eventually leaves and walks into another room where there's quiet for a few minutes} 
MK: {mumbling to herself as she works} Hmmm ... if I do ... but then how do I ... MONKEY BISCUIT BALLS!!!
BC: Do it! Do it!
BC: Giddy-up, horsey!

{Momma looks around}
{Ellie giggles}

MK: What are you two up to?
BC: Nothing.
EM: Bear's riding me! I'm his trusty steed!
MK: BEAR! No riding your sister!
EM: AWW. But it's fun!

MK: You know what?
BC: No. But I bet you're going to tell us anyway!
MK: {sigh} In the comments on our last post, someone asked if you two ever get along. I answered that you two get along when you're both busy gobbling down your wet food. I forgot about times you both are up to something - usually no good.
BC: It's not MY fault Smellie's stupid. If she's no good, you can't blame it on me!
MK: That's not what I meant and you know it.
BC: Like the other day when she didn't even get the insult I gave her right. Only a complete moron gets "circus geek show" from "circus freak show!" Leave it to my sister to mess it up. MORON.
EM: More on what?
BC: NO! You're a MORON!
EM: But more on what?
BC: It's no fun when you insult your sister and she's too stupid to realize it.

MK: While I have everyone's attention, let's get our second Chewy review done for the month! TADA!


Disclosure: We received Dr. Elsey's Clean Tracks Multi-Cat Strength Clumping Cat Litter (20 lb) - 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 Dr. Elsey nor Chewy are responsible for the contents of this post. 


BC: Litter again? Really?! REALLY?!? Holy @#$%!
EM: That's exactly what it's for! But if it's holy ... that's SOME litter.
MK: It's Dr. Elsey's Clean Tracks Multi-Cat Strength Clumping Cat Litter! This isn't any ordinary litter!

BC: The poop I have prepared isn't any ordinary poop!
MK: Come on Bear! Pose with the litter!
BC: Nope. NOT gonna pose! My rear end says it all.

{Ellie snickers}
BC: That didn't sound nearly as good as it did in my head.
MK: PLEASE pose? I need a picture of you with the product!
BC: What's it worth to you?
MK: Tuna treats.
EM: OH! OH! I'll pose too!!!!
BC: How many?
MK: A few.
BC: Which is exactly how many?
MK: And they say cats can't count.
EM: Is a few more than a whole bag? Like a whole TRUCK!
BC: Slow down, fatso.
MK: Four?
BC: Ten?
MK: Five?
BC: Fifteen?
MK: Eight?
BC: Twenty?
MK: {sigh} Ten?
BC: That offer was only good a minute ago.
EM: I'll take ten! I'll take ten!
MK: Fifteen?
EM: I get fifteen too, right?
BC: I'm posing! Do I look like I give a rat's backside? 'Cause I don't.
{Momma snaps away}
BC: Can I stop posing now? Hmmm ... that's odd ... I don't smell anything. Usually my litter box is like pooping in flowers in a cheap perfume factory.

EM: OH! Let me smell! Let me smell!
MK: Let me dump the litter into the litter box first.
EM: NO FAIR! I need to go to the litter box and there's no litter ... no, wait! There's litter in here! I just could smell it!

BC: Nothing gets by her. She was too busy being YELLIE to notice that you'd already poured the litter.
MK: The litter is fragrance-free - 100% free of deodorants, perfumes and chemicals - and hypoallergenic. Interestingly enough, it's also free of plant proteins. I've never seen that claim on a litter before but it makes sense that people and cats would be allergic to some plant proteins.

BC: I'm allergic to litter. And vegetables.
MK: Not this litter.
BC: I didn't mean LITERALLY!
MK: {sigh} It's also 99% dust-free, so it offers less tracking than most litters. Dr. Elsey's is made with natural ingredients - including clay. This variety claims to be multi-cat strength and hard-clumping. I must admit - the clumps are hard - maybe the tightest I've ever seen. And there's no dust all over the inside of the litter box like there usually is.

BC: Where are the treats?
MK: Oh. Right. Here.
{The cats gobble away}
MK: When considering litter, I look for tight clumping, little tracking and I prefer low dust and great odor control - but those are both secondary to clumping and not tracking. I know litter's not exactly glamorous ... but it is necessary. And a good litter makes for happy kitties. 
{Silence as the cats continue to gobble down their treats}
MK: Before trying it, my only complaint is that the litter leaked all over the inside of our Chewy box. When I opened the Chewy box, litter went flying everywhere.
BC: I learned a new word!

EM: What word? Huh, Momma? What word is Bear talking about?
BC: I'll tell you later.
MK: DO NOT repeat what I said! Overall, I love this litter. And it's not as expensive as I would've guessed. As I've said before, 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?

ps - The Boy, who Momma calls litter boy since he usually does most of the litter box scooping, enthusiastically approves of this litter too!

Interested in trying Dr. Elsey's Clean Tracks Multi-Cat Strength Clumping Cat Litter? Go visit Chewy and order a bag for your favorite feline!

  1. Hey, it's ALWAYS the cat's chair. Your mom needs Cat 101.

  2. You look like y'all are having fun horsing around! That litter sounds pretty darn interesting to us. But I agree with you, most of the litter we get from Chewy in the past arrived open in the box, we switched to jugs of litter which they shrink wrap for us.

  3. You kitty kats are hyesterical. That isnt good that the litter breaks open. I don't get the from Chewy because it is so heavy. You all have a great day.

    1. The Chewy cartons aren't sturdy enough for the weight either!

  4. Dexter loves Ross' desk chair and uses it more than Ross does. But like you Bear, he gives it a break (not a year though) and comes back to it. We get our litter from Chewy and only once has it been opened. They now shrink wrap it or tape the top closed.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you have so many wonderful beds and chairs and hidey holes.
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. All of the house belongs to the cats! It's the law, or at least an ordinance or something...

  7. TW and Pop love it and I love that it doesn't have fragrance.

  8. Sounds like a good litter. There is nothing worse to start me sneezing than a scented litter. Nice chair you've got there, Bear.

  9. AMARULA: I know you're always faithful to y our torties!! And that photo of you using the banana as a pillow is one of the sweetest ever!

    1. I am sweet ... well, except to fools who don't deserve it ;) ~Bear Cat

  10. That sounds like really great litter! Mudpie agrees with Amarula, you look adorable napping on your nanner, Bear!

  11. Oh, how I wish I could see a picture of Bear riding Ellie like a horse! All of Bear's pictures are so adorable!

  12. Oh my heavens. I laughed myself silly over the commentsd between Ellis and Bear. When I saw Bear in his Shark, it looked like the Shark was barfing Bear and i stsarted up again. The review was very good.


    1. Thank you! We've gotten lots of mileage out of the shark bed ... that doesn't sound right ... but we've never laughed so hard either.

  13. No fragrance and tight litter clumps? That sounds good to us!

    As for the chair possession thing ... why would MommaKat even think it's her chair? It's clearly YOURS (you're a cat, after all). :)


  14. Bear! Was that shark eating you!?!? Did you escape!! And the litter...we need something like that! Mom will have to check and see if she can get it in the States. For 2 weeks in November there will be 4 of us cats AGAIN! Even with cleaning everyday they get smelly!

    1. I'm glad I only have to share with ONE sibling! ~Bear Cat

  15. What is it about our humans breaking up our routines by introducing new litters? Mom did the same to me last month. Now I like to get packages in the mail just like the next kitty, but I'm with you - I don't jump with joy when it's a box of litter that comes out of the package! Tee hee hee. I haven't tried that Dr. Elsey's stuff, but I wouldn't be surprised if it finds its way to my box one of these days, too! Tee hee hee. Bear, if Ellie tires of you riding on her back, you can come over and ride on the doggie. She is my trusted and loyal steed. But you'll want to wear a nose clip, 'cause she has odors. Tee hee hee.

    1. Does she have cooties? Just asking ... for a friend ;) ~Bear Cat

  16. Glad ya'll liked the litter. We don't do clay and that's the only one chewy offered or we'd have been tryin' cat litter this month too. MOL Big hugs

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  17. I think as we don't have house cats per se, my view would be slightly different on some things. We don't have a lot of indoor scratching except from one cat (OK and a bit from Harvey). We we have had Natasha from when she was a tiny kitten and we did NOT teach hr to scratch it is instinct/genetic behaviour.

    Just DON'T get me started on the imbeciles who think declawing is a good idea or jaws will be broken. American vets who declaw are truly appalling - people in Europe and NZ are horrified this still happens in 2018.....

    1. I agree totally! And I've taken the AAHA to task on it too!

  18. Cats just like to keep us guessing, doesn't Momma know that yet? They are not going to let us figure them out!!
    The last litter change we tried with Sam did not go over well, it doesn't seem to matter what this Mom likes - Sam will launch a protest if we switch!
