Zoey and I love YEOWWW! catnip toys and we love to bat around balls. Look what their newest product is:
YEOWWW! My Cats Balls
Yesterday we tried another new canned food. This time Merrick's Before Grain Quail. We both loved it. We live in an area called Quail Hill in Irvine so a very appropriate food for us to eat! Today we are going to try the BG Chicken and then we are going to buy the BG Turkey to try also.
2 days ago Mommy & Daddy started brushing our teeth or trying to brush them. This is going to be a slow process. They were trying to come up with a name to call out when it was time to brush. They already use "Time to brush your teeth!" when it is time for our CET Dental chews. So they tried out "Tartar control!" then decided on "Party!". Trying to make it as exciting as possible. MOL! We do come running when called. But we are making baby steps. New flavor of toothpaste and new brushes are coming today to try. Our vet also recommended a dental additive to our water. The only thing is with eating all canned food, we don't drink much water. Mommy also bought ProDen PlaqueOff to put in our food. We started that yesterday and we ate the food with it in it, no problem.
We ordered My Cats Balls on Amazon and can't wait till they get here!
dood...there iz two many re fences ta burd here....

ya knead ta switch this up ta:
trout, tunie, salmon
peace out N rock on !!
Zack, we always look for recommendations from you and Zoey, but neither of us would eat that quail food. Mom thought we would like it, but NO WAY! That's one of many, many foods that went down the garbage disposal instead of into our tummies. *giggles*
I hope the new brushes and toothpaste help with your toothbrushing! They should make toothpaste YEOWWW! flavored.
Sorry Da Tabbies, we don't eat any fish!
Ashlynne you like what you like and no one is going to tell you differently! You are set on your tastes for food. The Before Grain consistency is a little different than some other foods but that doesn't seem to matter to us. Maybe because we are still so young, we like different formulas and flavors. Picturing your Mom trying all those foods with you. She deserved to cave! Now if we would just like certain flavors of toothpaste, this toothbrushing would be easier. To get us use to the brush, Mommy used baby food and chicken liv a littles on the brush. MOL! Yes, a YEOWWW! flavored toothpaste we would LOVE!
My Cats Balls look awesome! We are gonna have to get some of those!!
Your Mommy & Daddy are so determined, I bet you guys are gonna have the whitest teeth around!
Oh, I love YEOWWW toys too, esp., my banana, lemon and sardines! The balls look like lots of fun too! I don't play with balls but my sister Miss Mittens would have loved them. :)
Good for you and Zoey for trying different and unusual foods and not only eating them, but liking them! You're young enough not to be set in your ways about food like Ashlynne and me. Mommy's not even going to try the quail. After all the times Miss Mittens and I turned our noses up at pheasant, duck, rabbit and a few other exotic (and expensive) items we tried that went right into the garbage, why bother? MOL!
Sounds like you two are off to a promising start with the teeth brushing/cleaning situation. Good luck!
Hi Tasha! Hi Kaci Sunshine! Sounds like you and Ashlynne had the best fed garbage disposals/cans around. MOL! Why eat what you don't like!
Mommy figures these YEOWWW! balls will make less noise than our ping pong balls when we play with them in the middle of the night! Love when they come out with new items.
Everycat enjoy eating today, whatever food/flavor you like best!
I'm relieved to see the "balls" come in sets of 3. I thought it may be some extreme form of recycling.
I am relieved about that too, Nikolai. MOL!!
Those balls look like fun! Now, if only we didn't have a Dood that would think they were his!
Enjoy your new foodies!
Those toys look like fun!
Dang, there is so much for me to comment on in this pawsome diary entry, Zack!
First, I came running because I thought maybe your grapes grew back! But then I realized your cat balls were just toys! You would have really had big scoop to announce if your grapes came back! Mine haven't, but I still have my fruitcups.
Then I was excited to hear about brushing your toofies cause I love brushing my toofies. And the MRS. doesn't even have to yell fun words - she opens the bathroom door after she takes a shower, and I'm there - ready to brush my toofies!
A big paws up for your Daddy - my DD would never attempt to brush my toofies!
I've never had quail, but the MRS. said when I move to Arizona, I might get to see some in my backyard! I don't know if the quail in my backyard will be the Before Grain kind, but I'll ask them and let you know.
Hi Enzo, these balls are probably not good if one has a new Dood in the house!
Hi Jezebel, I get my new balls tomorrow. I hope they are as fun as they look!
Hi Newman and thanks for your comments! I can just imagine what some thought when they read the title of my diary. MOL! You are so good about brushing your toofies. Mommy wishes we were too. She ordered still another flavor of toothpaste as Zoey doesn't seem to care for the last 2 (malt and seafood). This time we ordered poultry which sounds pretty popular with cats. What flavor do you recommend?
Mommy remembers the cute Quail families walking across the streets in Tucson. I hope you get to see some in your new backyard. We decided to stop eating the Nature's Variety Instinct Rabbit as they get their bunnies Made in China. Mommy didn't want to take a chance.
We are trying to get as many rays as we can because the dark clouds are moving in with more rain.
Zack - my toothpaste is C.E.T. poultry flavor. My toothbrush is a tiny white one with bristles on the end of it. The MRS. bought me a toothbrush that has bristles that go on either side of the toofies, but it doesn't work very good. I like to bite the toothbrush while my toofies are getting cleaned, so the little brush works better. I always rinse too - she puts water on the brush and I get to suck it. Then don't forget the most important part. Your Mommy has to kiss you on the head and say, "clean teeth, fresh breath". Then you can jump off the bathroom counter and go play. That is what I do!
Thank you so much Newman for all your toofies advice. We do have the tiny white cat cet toothbrushes and Mommy likes those best compared to others. We should get our poutry flavored toothpaste tomorrow. Happy to hear that is the one you recommend. I love when Mommy kisses me so I will remind her she has to say "clean teeth, fresh breath" after she kisses me after brushing. MOL! We have been doing our brushing on the kitchen counter so I will jump off that and go play afterwards just like you do. I want to be just like you, Newman!
Now instead of eating our meals on the kitchen floor, we enjoy our meals on the kitchen counter. I even have a special favorite white towel I like to sit on while I am eating! Then after Mommy has cleaned everything up, and rinsed the sink with hot water, I go sit in the sink where it is nice and warm. I do love my routine :)
Those Yeowww balls look like fun. We haven't seen them up here yet. It's just a matter of time I'm sure and then I'll make mother get me some.
I'm fed the BG Chicken & Quail sometimes and I love it! Not as much as my Wellness Chicken & Herring but it is tasty just the same :)
NO WAY is anyone gonna brush my teeth. Oh my no!
Hi Miss P! Let's hope My Cats Balls get to Canada soon so you can make your mother go shopping for a present for you. So deserving you are. Nice thing is that there are 3 balls to the set so one for each of you!
Tomorrow I am getting the BG Turkey. I'll let you know how I like that one. I bet nothing beats your favorite Wellness Chicken & Herring! I am not sure I have a favorite yet, I seem to like the taste of everything.
Mommy is making progress with my teeth. I actually like the Malt Flavored toothpaste we have and she had the toothbrush in my mouth with the paste on it. Once when there was no paste left, I slapped at the toothbrush and it went flying across the room. Of course Mommy had to laugh at that. I am very strong. She got the toothbrush in Zoey's mouth but it had the chicken liv a littles in it. Zoey is a little scared of the brush so it was good it got in her mouth at all.
Have a great weekend, friends!
P.S. YAY, U of A Wildcats beat Duke!!
Oh. My. Cat. I *must* have those cat balls! MOMMMMMY, get your purse!
Let them brush your teeth buddy. I have to go in on Monday to get my teeth cleaned cause I don't get them brushed, that's not going to be fun at all. Sigh...
Zack, my Mom was just reading a Cat Watch newsletter from Cornell, and it mentions this 4-part video about brushing.
Brushing Your Cat's Teeth
Your Mommy may want to watch the last section, the 4-week training program, to see if there are any good tips.
Zack and Zoey, let your Mommy and Daddy brush your teeth. I have to have another dental cleaning soon, too, and probably a tooth pulled. River, I feel for you! :(
Charlie I hope you get your paws on some of those Cat Balls. YEOWWW!
Ok, River I will listen to your advice! Good luck getting your teeth cleaned at the Vet on Monday. I will be thinking of you. Sometimes even with brushing, one needs those professional cleanings. Your teeth will be pearly white again. But best if we don't have to go to the Vet at all, I say.
Thanks so much Ashlynne for the Video link. For sure Mommy will watch it so see if she can get any tips. Ok, after listening to all you kitties having to go to the Vet and maybe even getting more teeth pulled, I promise to brush my teeth.
Mommy thinks she will be fine with me, it is little Miss Zoey that is the problem child. She is very skittish. Will watch the video!
Ashlynne the video of the 4 week training program made brushing look easy! With me I am already use to the toothbrush and toothpase. She will slow it down a bit so Zoey can catch up. I think if we find a toothpaste she likes, she will do ok. That was VERY helpful. Thanks again!
Interesting video "Brushing your Cat's Teeth" - thanks Ashlynne for posting the link. That didn't look too scary, and it could be centered around our time at the bathroom sink - something both Sleeper and I love. We especially like it when Mama makes a cup out of her hands for us to drink from. I think at that time I could gradually be persuaded to let her brush my teeth...maybe! MOL
