Chewy's Holiday Goody Box #ChewyInfluencer

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

As you might have noticed earlier this week, Momma's funny is broken and she's devoid of funny inspiration. We're working on another serious post for next week, but I want to do the topic justice and that will require more time. In the mean time, we owe Chewy a review on their Holiday Goody Box for cats. The pictures tell the most of the tail ... err ... tale ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Disclosure: We received Chewy's Holiday Goody Box for cats - 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 - Chewy in not responsible for the contents of this post. #ChewyInfluencer

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MK: Are you two ready?
EM: YEAH! What'd we get? What'd we get? And is there any tuna?
BC: Whatever.
MK: TADA!

BC: A box? Unless it's full of bazookas. tanks, and tasty whole chickens ... THIS is what you dragged me out of a nap dreaming about torties and crab cakes for? Momma, you really need to get out m ...
EM: WHOOOOOA! How did you know that this is EXACTLY what I want? You even got the right color! This is the best thing ever! Oh! I'm just try it ...

BC: She just has to make me look bad ...
{Pause}
EM: Oops. You got me a box that's not really a box for me? I don't think I'll fit ... and if I can't fit, I can't sit!

BC: But she manages to make herself look even worse ... you've never let not fitting stop you before! Look out! WIDE LOAD!
EM: This box isn't for me to sit ... it's a box full of ... 

BC: Stuff!
EM: YEAH! NOT tuna!
BC: That color makes your butt look even bigger ... no, wait. It has nothing to do with the color. Your butt really is that big!
{Pause}
EM: Wait just a minute ... I smell ... I smell ...

BC: FINALLY! Smellie admits it!
EM: AHA! Catnip!
MK: Get out of the box, Ellie!
EM: But ... but ...
MK: I need to take a picture of the contents of the box!

EM: But ... but ... I'M not part of the contents of the box! First you give me a box that's already full ... and THEN you take pictures of the stuff instead of pictures of me! I need a lap! That's the only thing that will make this better.
MK: It will only take a minute ...{Momma snaps away}. That's a good one ... now I just arrange the rest of this ...
EM: Maybe you didn't hear me ... but I NEED A LAP! The service is horrible around here!
MK: I'll be done in a minute, Ellie. Then you can have my lap.
EM: But ... but ... I found the catnip! I saw ... err ... got it FIRST! Can I have the catnip while I wait?
BC: Niphead. She's stupid even when she's not under the influence.

MK: Look at all this good stuff! Comfort Zone Calming Cat Diffusing Kit, Calm Paws Calming Collar, Solid Gold Triple Layer Cups in turkey and pumpkin, Ethical Pets Shimmer Balls, Inaba Churu Lickable cat treats, Weruva Slide n' Serve pouches in Lamb and Mackeral and ...


EM: XTREME CATNIP!
MK: Xtreme catnip.
EM: That's mine!
BC: Phht. Over my dead body. Chill out! Put on the calming collar! Hahahaha.
EM: Why don't you play with the Shimmer Balls? You know, since you don't have yours anymore.
MK: You two have tried the Weruva Slide n' Serve pouches in Lamb and Mackeral and neither of you touched it.
EM: We didn't eat it either.
BC: TOO. STUPID. TO. LIVE. TOO. STUPID. IT. HURTS.
MK: And we've tried the Royal Canin too. The chunks are kind of big. Bear wouldn't touch it - and Ellie just licked up what little gravy there was. As for the Triple Layer thing, Bear doesn't like pumpkin ... so this might be mostly a bust food-wise. I bet you'll love the lickable treats though - treats like that are the only ones I can depend on that you'll eat.

{Pause}
MK: Let's try the Royal Canin again. Not much gravy ... and almost too big chunks ... but the company has a great reputation. I find it kind of sketchy that there's no indication what meat these pouches contain ... poring over the list of ingredients didn't really impress me either.
{Momma sets down the plates for the cats}
BC: What's that?
MK: Food.
BC: What kind of food?
EM: {already eating} The yummy kind!

BC: That's a ringing endorsement ... you eat my barf.
EM: Surprisingly, our food tastes the same going down the second time ... well, except for the hair. I eat around that.
MK: Come on, Bear. At least TRY the Royal Canin?
BC: Phht. If I wouldn't eat it the first time ... the best thing I have to say for that food is that it doesn't have vegetables.

MK: PLEASE try it?
BC: What is it?
MK: FOOD!
BC: Yeah, but what kind?
MK: Give me a minute to look over the ingredients and I'll tell you.
{Pause}
BC: So much for a GOODY box. More like a BADDY box.
MK: Catnip?
BC: No thanks. I'm trying to avoid nips.
MK: NO! Not a drink or nip for cats ... CATNIP!
BC: Did you say catnip? Gimme!
{Pause}
BC: Oh, yeah. That's the good stuff! Even Smellie doesn't look as Smellie with this stuff!

EM: HEY!
{Pause}
BC: Oh, yeah. Right there. That's the spot.
 
{Pause}
BC: Come to papa, my sweet.
{Pause}
BC: I love you, catnip! I love you, carpet! I love I love I love ...
EM: Even me?
BC: Even you? You're not even, you're ODD! Hahahahaha.
EM: You were saying that you love everything. What about me?
BC: This stuff isn't THAT ... I just saw the cheese run away with the spoon!
EM: Did you say cheese?! For some reason I have the munchies all of a sudden! WHOA! There goes the neighborhood after the cheese! The big cheese indeed!
BC: If I just pretend she's not here ... not here ... not here ...
{Pause}
BC: Nope. This stuff is not THAT good.

MK: You two want to play with the balls?
EM: But Daddy said ...
BC: Eh. You've handled one ball, you've handled them all. Now bring me back that catnip!

EM: Momma said you have to share!
BC: Not if I get there first.
EM: HEY! Bear's hogging the catnip!
BC: Don't even think about it!

EM: But Momma said ...
BC: Phht. You know as well as I do that I never listen to her.
EM: MOMMA!!!

BC: MROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!
EM: {taking cover under the kitchen table} You have a really bad attitude problem!
BC: No. I have a really big sister problem. And the sister is even bigger than the problem.

{Pause}
BC: That sounded a whole lot better in my head.

BC: There's always an annoying critic.
EM: But I want the catnip! You have to share!
BC: As I was saying ...
MK: BEAR! Share with your sister.
BC: If I shared with my sister what I'd like to share with my sister, I'd be in big trouble.
MK: BEAR! Go to your shelf! It's your sister's turn with the catnip!
BC: Well, EXCUSE ME for telling the truth! Like I know what crawled up your butt and died! 
MK: Oh, boy. What fun it is to live with TWO cats.
EM: It's more fun than one, right, Momma?
BC: I don't think fun is the word she wants to use ...
MK: 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?

UPDATE - The next night we tried the Inaba Churu lickable treats.

 
I was sure Bear would love them as he does the other brands that make lickable treats. Bear's reaction is obvious ...

Though Ellie gobbled it right up and cleaned her plate.

  2. That looks like a great box! We’ve bought a couple of these and gifted a couple, too. We might just have to get this one. Bear, how could you not like the Churu treat. They’re Olive’s all time FAVORITE!

  3. A holiday box?? That's cool. We like the chicken in a tube--we buy chicken baby food to keep on hand for emergencies.

  7. Oh boy, a box like that sounds like it's as bad as getting socks again for Christmas or birthday from a distant relative. Oh well maybe you could do a swap with other Chewy Box owners and get something you like, or take it to a local, rescue. I guess I won't ever be getting one–unless they start doing mice!

    1. Ooooh. A SWAP. Err ... can I trade my sister for your Kraken? ~Bear Cat

      Delete
    2. Hmm... sounds tempting–but how is she with mailmen? Plus the Kraken asks what size is your hot tub is, and does the boy do massages?

  8. The creamy puree stuff looks interesting, but the English on the package is a bit sketchy!

    1. It is kind of weird. And it smells completely different than the variety Bear will eat. He was so excited thinking that's what I was giving him.

  9. Whoa! A holiday goody box. The RC doesn't list a meat cos there's no real meat in it. HAH! You have the right idea, Bear, head straight for the nip.

    1. My Momma said that too! To read the ingredient list is ... interesting.

  10. We might side with Bear on that last one...that stuff was weird looking! :)
    Boxes are so much fun, but can also bit so hit or miss with fussy - er, particular, animals!

    1. The funny thing is that there's a cheaper brand that has essentially the same thing and Bear scarfs those down - but not these.

  16. It is fun to get a box of goodies, but I must say I can see why you were disappointed, Bear. It is odd that the ingredients list isn't more helpful on the RC! At least it looks like the nip is a winner.

  20. MOL Yeah, we're not fond of those lickables either. Mommy said they're really messy. What's the point of a lickable ifin ya' have to use a plate. Sis Lexi used to get one that was a solid lickable and we luvved it. The Chewy goody boxes have left a lot to be desired as of late. At least fur us. The foods aren't that good and there's not enuff really good toys. Glad ya'll enjoyed the nip. Big hugs

    Luv ya'
