It’s not often that our cat, Snickers, gets a chance to be featured here on the blog, but he and I feel strongly about sharing our latest yummy find: Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Grain Free Wet Food for Cats and Zero Grain Food for Cats. Snickers also wants me to tell you about a very cool DIY cat collar project that we think you’ll want to try with your very own kitty.
We found these delicious new cat foods in the pet food aisle at our local Walmart store and decided we’d give them a try. My Snickers is a bit of a picky eater, so trying something new is always a little bit of a gamble, but this was a gamble that paid off.
In case you’re not familiar with the Nutrish® line, it was started back in 2007 when Rachael Ray (with some help from pet nutrition experts) created a line of premium dog foods and treats.
In 2014, the line expanded to include cat food, and all varieties are made with the kind of wholesome ingredients that I can really get excited about, like real farm raised chicken and salmon from right here in the United States. It’s always the number one ingredient, and Nutrish® never includes corn, wheat, soy, or gluten, poultry by-products, fillers, artificial preservatives, colors or artificial flavors.
Snickers is a big fan of both the Zero Grain Food for Cats Whitefish & Potato Recipe, and the Grain Free Wet Food for Cats. In fact, those are his absolute favorites. As a senior cat, he really needs the high-quality protein and essential nutrients found in both of these varieties to support healthy organs and lean muscle mass.
Click here to see where you can buy Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® products. Remember, if you decide to make a change to your pet’s diet, it should be done gradually by incorporating the new food into your current food over the course of 7-10 days. Dietary changes are easier on your pet when you slowly replace his current food with Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® until it’s completely switched over.
Now, about that DIY cat collar project I mentioned above. You’ll find some really fun DIYs for cats on the @NutrishForPets Pinterest page. We chose an easy collar project because Snickers was so in need of a new collar. What I really like about this one is that the collar is perfect not just for cats, but also dogs.
Check out the step-by-step instructions below!
- 1 ½ cups of epsom salt
- 1 tablespoon of colorful sugar sprinkles
- 7-10 drops of essential oil
- Mix the epsom salt and essential oils in a medium size bowl. Mix well until all of the ingredients are well blended.
- You can now add the sugar sprinkles. Adding them now prevent them from being saturated with the essential oil which can cause the colors to leak.
- Pour the bath salts into an airtight jar. This will help keep it fresh and help preserve the oils in the mixture.
- To use the bath salts just empty the contents into a bath of warm, running water and enjoy!
- These bath salts can be stored for several months and will still stay fresh as long as you keep air out and store in a cool and dry place.
See what I mean? Just a few simple steps, and you’ve got yourself a very cool new cat (or dog) collar like this one.
As you can see, because the required supplies are so limited, you can easily make lots of collars in a rainbow of colors and styles at very little cost. That’s definitely a win-win, right?
If you decide to try this fun project with your cat (or dog), please feel free to share a photo of your finished collar on The Lazy Pit Bull Facebook page!
