Today I’m writing about cats. Yes, a sponsored post, about felines. When the opportunity first came my way, I thought “what on EARTH does a health/running/fitness blog have to do with cats?” Then I realized, “Oh yeah, I am a crazy cat person.” By association, that is. It’s not my fault.
The truth is, I fell in love with the Dr. Doolittle of the cat world. Not his cats, just him. Not only does this man fiercely love cats, but they feel the same way about him. They flock to him like there is some sort of unspoken, secret cat language between them. That or he’s got a can of mackerel in his pocket, I’m not sure. These cats in the pictures below? None of them are ours. They just appear out of nowhere…
These furballs, however, are ours.
But, those furry little creatures grew on me. And so, having adopted myself into a family of cats, I too have apparently become a crazy cat woman. I denied it for a long time. When people would read a funny article about cats or cat people, they would share it with me, and not Geoff. “HE is the cat person!” I would cry, “THEY AREN’T MINE!” But then it started to happen. Sharing cute cat memes on facebook , or hilarious cat videos with my mother in law…heck, even 25% of my instagram feed is now cats. I suppose since I spend most of my day working at home next to these kitties, it was only a matter of time before my “coworkers” grew on me.
So, needless to say, the cats are an integral part of our family, there is no doubt about it. And I think most people with pets would say the same thing; their furry little friends are more than simply “pets”, they are indeed family members. Something I find interesting, however, is the fact that so many of us are very concerned with eating healthy, quality foods, yet do not put the same thought and concern into what we feed our pets.
Recently, our cats were sent a care package from the Nutrish line, created by Rachael Ray. (In all seriousness, the box was addressed to them, not me.) In addition to a hilarious new cat toy (this must be the equivalent of me getting new running shoes) the box contained a bag of the new Zero Grain Whitefish food.
We do a lot to make sure these fuzzy felines stay healthy. Regular vet visits, physical activity, lots of love, and a pretty strict feeding routine (just like in their human counterparts, pet obesity is actually a huge issue). It is important to us that we feed our cats quality cat food in order to keep them happy and healthy, and not fill them with unnecessary fillers and junk…just as we try to do the same in our own diets. Nutrish recipes are made with simple natural ingredients and do not contain meat or poultry by-product meal or fillers, therefore, I had no hesitations in giving it to our cats.

The cats wouldn’t give me a thorough product review, what with them not being able to talk and all, but I think this video pretty much sums it up:
As a pet owner, I was excited to hear that Rachael Ray’s Nutrish isn’t something I have to seek out at a specialty shop or the veterinarian’s office. Nutrish is the first premium brand that is not only available in your local grocery store, but available at mass retailers like Target, Walmart and Amazon. This makes it easier and more affordable to keep my coworkers …I mean cats…eating healthy.

Do you have cats? (or dogs?) Be honest, do you know exactly what is in the food you are feeding them? And is the quality of the ingredients in their food a concern for you?
