Our cat Zowie gets wet cat food for breakfast every morning. His nutrition is as important as the rest of the family and we recently switched his food to Rachel Ray Nutrish Grain Free Wet Food. We all know Rachel Ray from her healthy 30 minute meals. Now with the help from pet nutritionists and inspired by recipes from her own kitchen, she has created Nutrish premium cat food. 

The line is dedicated "Real Recipes. Real Ingredients. Real Good". Translation, wholesome ingredients you can see and a taste your cat will love. When you read the nutrition label you'll see that the #1 ingredient is always farm raised chicken or salmon along with natural plus vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. You'll never see corn, wheat, soy, poultry bi-product meal, fillers, artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. 

We stopped by our local Walmart and went to the pet care section to pick up Tuna Purrfection™ and Chicken Purrcata® recipes. Other varieties include Chicken & Shrimp Pawttenesca™, Chicken & Salmon Catterole™, Paw Lickin’ Chicken & Liver, Tuna Purrfection™, Ocean Fish-a-licious®, Lip Smackin’ Sardine ‘N Mackerel, Ocean Fish & Chicken Catch-iatore, Chicken Lovers Variety Pack and Ocean Lovers Variety Pack. Discover where you can find Rachael Ray Nutrish by visiting

When making changes to your cat's diet, gradually introduce the food by incorporating it into your current food over the course of 7-10 days. Slowly replace your pet's current food with Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® until it’s completely switched over.

I'm always a fan of companies that give back and Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue, which was created to help shelter pets in need. To date, she has donated over $14MM. This money has gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for these unfortunate animals. You can read more about Rachel's Rescue here.

DIY No-Sew Cat Tent

Zowie has had an adventurous life. For years he was both an indoor and outdoor cat. He would be outside all day and when we took our dog out of the last walk of the night he would find us, follow us home and come inside for the night. He now stays inside and spends his days napping in strange places like the bathroom sink or my scarf bin. He clearly needs his own space to sleep in and this no-sew cat tent is the perfect hideaway!

~ Supplies ~
15 x 15 square cardboard
2 wire hangars
Duck tape
Old (or new) large tee-shirt

~ Instructions ~

Using a pliers, punch a small hole in each corner of the cardboard 1/2 inch from the edge.

Using a pliers, cut off the handle of the hangars and then bend the hangars into a "u" shape. Try to get them as uniform as possible.

Cross the two hangars diagonally and insert into each hole. Reinforce the top with duck tape.

Using a pliers, bend a one inch section so that it lays flat on the bottom of the cardboard.

Then tape the wire ends down with duck tape.

Pull the shirt over the frame so that the neck opening is in the front middle. 

Turn over and fold the excess from the bottom of the shirt and safety pin in place.

Gather the sleeves, pull tight and pin to the back of the tent.

Insert a blanket or cushion and it's ready for your cat!
