If you talk to anyone who has a pet, or if you have one yourself, you know very well how close you can feel to your pet in a seemingly short amount of time. With that being said, I really, really love my cat.
Her name is Devin, she is a mostly-black Tortoise Shell with hues of brown going through her and she is gorgeous. She has been with me for almost four years now and it has been great seeing her personality develop and come to terms with the fact that I am not the ruler of my own house because as anyone with a cat knows, they very much do as they please, when they please and if you don’t like what they’re doing, well, that’s just your problem. Devin is very true to that statement and I also often wake up to her batting me in the face with her paw not because she’s hungry, because she has had food every time I have woken up at an obscenely early hour because of her, but because I think she just thinks I should be awake.
Obviously, my connection to my cat is a very strong one and I think rather highly of her, so I was pretty excited when MyBlogSpark informed me that they were working with 9Lives to spread the word about feline nutrition.
When 9Lives recently surveyed “feline pet parents” (How much do you love that title? I know I do.) they found that 94% of people who had a cat were confident that they fed their felines the most nutritious meals possible. They also found that 48% of feline pet parents fed their cats table scraps an average of seven times per month and that 30% of people surveyed knew that giving cats milk may not be healthy for their cats due to the common incidence of lactose intolerance in adult cats. Furthermore, 23% of people believe that it is healthy and beneficial for cats to be kept on a strictly vegetarian diet, however, that may actually be harmful because vegetarian diets do not provide cats with the nutrients they need for a long, healthy life.
The 9Lives survey found that 92% of feline pet parents would switch cat foods if it would improve their cat’s health and 91% would switch food if they could add years onto their feline’s life. That’s where the 9Lives new Advanced Nutrient System comes in, a cat food that contains essential nutrients cats need to help promote healthy skin and coat, strong muscle growth, a healthy immune system and heart and clear vision.
I had the opportunity to let Devin try out the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System Daily Essentials dry food, which I received from 9Lives through MyBlogSpark. I also received a magnetic picture frame, pet food scoop and cat toys. She seems to really like the dry food, there is no change in how much or little she eats as opposed to her food prior to 9Lives and I will definitely continue to give it to her. Devin has always been on the small side; I think she must have been the runt of the litter and I was very concerned about her not putting on much weight although she eats very normally. Our vet explained that Devin is just small and will most likely stay small, but she’s very healthy and I like knowing that the food she is given is completely balanced and full of all the right nutrients.
Devin also very much enjoyed her new cat toys. One in particular has pretty much become her go-to toy and it’s probably because it’s a toy full of catnip. She has been playing with it so much that I couldn’t help but take a little video of her.
To help spread the word about 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, we are giving away a bag of 9Lives Daily Essentials dry cat food and prize pack that should delight cat lovers everywhere!
