Hill’s Youthful Vitality for Kitty #AwesomeAsEver

 Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Hill’s® Science Diet® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the new Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality pet food for cats and dogs over the age of 7, but Simply Sweet Home only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.

If you are a regular visit to my blog, then you know that the Simply Sweet Home dog and cats play a huge role in my life.  I love them like children, and I try to do everything I can to make sure they are healthy and happy.  One way I do that is by feeding them good food like Hill’s® Science Diet®.

Rebel Cat

Rebel is my oldest cat.  He just celebrated his ninth birthday! (Happy Birthday Rebel!)  According to the age calculator I found on the Hill’s® Science Diet® website, this makes Rebel 52 years old in human years.

As an older cat, Rebel spends a lot more time lounging and napping than he did in his younger days, and he certainly isn’t the ball of energy our kitten Mina is.  But he still gets around well and has a very happy disposition.  Recently I started feeding Rebel Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality.  The food is formulated to give complete nutrition to cats ages 7 and up.  The company also has a similar product for 7+ dogs and 7+ small/toy dogs.

DIY Cat Scratcher Tutorial and Cats Pride

Today we have another fun post starring the Simply Sweet Home Cats! Yay!  Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE my baby cats and would do anything for them.  And I have to say, I think I’m very lucky to have a couple of really good-natured and well behaved cats!  But like all relationships, a relationship between a cat mommy and her cats can get quite interesting!  For example, my sweet Sugar cat likes to cuddle, but only on her terms, and she will give you a very small love bite when she’s ready to stop.  Meanwhile, Rebels love to lounge around, and he often chooses to make clothing, backpacks, purses, and anything that’s new his bed (and every now & then he likes to scratch on things)!

Helping My Cats Live Well with Purina Muse

Everyone who knows me, knows how much I LOVE my furbabies.  They definitely make my simply sweet home a LOT sweeter, and because they bring so much joy to MY life, I try my best to make sure they have a good life.  One way I do this is my making sure they have delicious and nutritious foods and treats, and then I also make sure they are always comfortable and happy in our home.

First let’s talk cat food. Recently I bought some Purina Muse® Natural Cat Food for Rebel and Sugar. When I learned about the Muse® line, I was happy to try it, because the products are made with natural ingredients; that is to say, that all recipes are made with real fish or poultry, are grain free, and the products contain no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

With Muse you don’t have to choose between natural nutrition and food that tastes great. Your cat can have both when you choose Muse.

Fresh Step LightWeight Review & Giveaway

Fresh Step Giveaway

One of the latest products on the market for “cat parents” is lightweight litter.   It is an idea that is long overdue.  As a cat mommy, I like to get the best deal possible on litter, and that usually comes from buying the bigger packages, but it can be murder on your back, so I usually have to choose savings or convenience.  But now the lightweight litter option gives me another choice!  Fresh Step now has a LightWeight litter formula, and we recently tried that in our home.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with my resident kitty cat product testers, here they are: [Read more…]
