Momma searches for her sense of humor, part 2 #ChewyInfluencer

Momma's note: With Bear's pancreatitis and everything else stressing me out, my imaginary friend isn't speaking to me at the moment: hence, no humor. Of course, it doesn't help that the Cat Writer's Association Communication Contest results are in with no recognition for our humor; I'm taking that pretty hard. We did however, earn three certificates of excellence for these articles: Feline instincts, Do cats need human interaction or are they completely fine on their own? and The importance of veterinary care for cats and why they're not getting it. To review all the honors and find other amazing writing from my colleagues: CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE WINNERS, Cat Writers Communications Contest covering calendar year 2018. Already demoralized because of the Contest results, I've learned the last two weeks that it's truly a meal by meal battle with Bear's pancreatitis and just because Bear eats healthfully one meal doesn't mean that he's over some magical hump. While I  try to remember how to laugh, we're posting our two March Chewy reviews today in pictures. Per Chewy's rules, they will be separate posts. We found out the #ChewyInfluencer program is ending, so these reviews will be the last Chewy reviews we do for awhile. Thank you to Chewy for treating us like family!

EM: So what's our second Chewy food for March?
BC: Phht. She probably got litter or carpet cleaner.
EM: You can't eat litter or carp ...
{Pause}
EM: Oh.
BC: How do I manage?

EM: YOU eat litter and carpet cleaner?
BC: NO! I manage to live with the village idiot.
EM: Don't say that about my Daddy! Ooh! I bet this bed in the second item of the month! This is great!
BC: That's the packing slip.

EM: Whatever you call it.
BC: It's a piece of paper!
EM: I like to sit on paper.

MK: No. Our second item to review is Canidae Adore Shreds with tuna, chicken, and whitefish in broth.

EM: I'm busy!
BC: THAT'S JUST A RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER! She said TUNA!
EM: HEY! Don't insult my new friend like ...

{Pause}
EM: Don't worry! You're not just a piece of paper! You can be anything you want to be!
{Pause}
EM: Wait ... TUNA?

MK: Are you two ready to try it?
EM: YAY!
BC: Eh.
MK: Some more information for our readers ...

{Pause}
MK: Okay. Plate it up.

{Pause}
MK: Here you go, Bear.
BC: Nope.

MK: Come on! At least sniff it!
BC: Nope.
MK: BEAR!
BC: MOMMA!
MK: Try it!
BC: If it's so good, YOU eat it!
MK: Please?
BC: Nope.
MK: Doesn't it smell good?
BC: Nope.
EM: YUM! This is good!

{Pause}
BC: Did we get the same stuff?
EM: I'll share with you!
BC: {sniffing} Nope.
{Pause}
EM: MMM ... mmm ... hmm mmm ... hmm mmm ... hmm. 
BC: SHOW OFF!
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?

Interested in trying CANIDAE Adore Tuna, Chicken & Whitefish in Broth Canned Cat Food? Go visit Chewy and order a case for your favorite feline!

MK: We got our Chewy items to review for March.
BC: Eh. Whatever.
EM: Is it food? Did we get food? What kind of food? Where's the food? Because I like food. I like food a lot. I can eat a lot of food. Food food food! The only thing better than food is tuna.
BC: Umm ... tuna IS food.
EM: Oh, yeah. Haha. I got a little too excited.
BC: What about laps and sparkle balls?
EM: WHERE?!
BC: No. Aren't laps and sparkle balls better than food?
EM: That was a mean trick!
BC: Trick? What trick?
EM: You made me think there were a bunch of sparkle balls and laps!
BC: I'll make you ...
MK: Bear!
BC: Nuts.
MK: We got Wellness Gravies.

EM: GRAVY?
BC: HELLO!
{Pause}
BC: Wait ... Wellness? Maybe you forgot I don't eat brands of wet food that start with W.
MK: Gravy?
EM: YAY!
BC: Is it made by a brand that begins with a "W?"
MK: Err ...
BC: Nope.
MK: You don't even want to sniff ...
BC: NOPE.
EM: Oh! Oh! I'll try it! I'll try it!
BC: I'd be more surprised if you didn't eat.

EM: I'm just trying to help Momma here!
BC: Where's the Chewy box? Sit in the Chewy box and be VERY quiet and you'll help me.
EM: But the food is out here!
BC: Take your food plate in the box with you!
EM: Okay.
MK: No way! Bear, leave your sister alone.
BC: Why? She can't leave ME alone EVER! I don't ever hear you tell her to leave ME alone!
EM: I hear her doing that all the time!
BC: Err ... did I mention that I don't listen to Momma?
MK: That's obvious. Okay. Let's try the gravy-laden goodness.

BC: Nope. 
MK: Just sniff it!
BC: No.
MK: But I already plated ...
BC: Nope.
MK: {sigh} Fine. Here you go, Ellie.

MK: Just a few tidbits for our readers about Wellness Gravies ...

EM: MMM! MMM! This is good!
BC: GET A ROOM!

EM: Oh! I LOVE this gravy!

{Pause}
EM: Umm ... Momma? While you're up can you give me Bear's plate?
