So I hope you are all trying out our contest! I think it is pretty easy, well, ok, not super easy but not bad (ok, Brad had to think about it even). Oh, and his new camera is a Cannon EOS 5D Mark II - apparently the Mark II part is super important. I am a Nikon girl myself, but it is a pretty nice camera I have to admit.
So today we finally ran out of crunchies and I was able to give the kitties the new Taste of the Wild Canyon River Feline formula. They are sponsoring the contest and they were nice enough to send us some free samples to try. Now I know the cats like their Rocky Mountain Formula - like I have said that is one of dry foods I get them already. So I had high hopes for this one. I opened the box and Barney went straight for the packages - not a surprise knowing Barney. He goes after the treats all the time too. So I decided to try and give them some as treats - and 5 out of 6 HoC kitties agreed that they like it (Kirzon isn't a crunchy food fan in general so I wasn't surprised he didn't want to try it - I think since his teeth are more sensitive he prefers the canned foods). Now, I had given the cats a snack when I got home - some canned Tiki Cat, so they had some food already, and yet they still were interested in the stuff. Virgil and Lola especially seemed to like it - I wasn't sure with Gus and Stella because they did pig out a bit - and Virgil totally pushed Gus out of the way to get to his. I put the rest in a bowl and will keep an eye on them to see what they think for the next couple days, and will give you updates, but so far it looks like the cats are all fans (crunchy hater Kirzon excluded - but again, he doesn't even eat crunchy treats like temptations, so he isn't a good judge). .
The other big thing at our house this weekend, other than trying out the foods, is that it is of course one of the biggest sports weekends of the year - THE PUPPY BOWL!!! Ok, I admit we are not big sports fans at our house, and really Virgil is the only person in the house who cares who wins (his girlfriendcat Danielle is from Wisconsin so he is supporting Green Bay for her - our mancats are good like that - last year Barney rooted for the Colts for Gracie). But in our house the big thing we look forward to on Superbowl Sunday is The Puppy Bowl - I would say we watch the entire thing at least twice and we flip over to it a bunch of times too. And of course we also adore the kitten half time show! So if you have the chance we highly recommend watching it - even Brad looks forward to seeing it.
So, that is all for today - I am hearing some crunching, so someone is eating some more of the food - not sure who but I see Virgil so I know it is someone else - it is nice he is giving them a chance at it!
