Purina PP Protein Shrimp Cat Snack

I was provided Purina Pro Plan Shrimp Cat Snack to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first gave the Purina shrimp cat snacks to Kohl and Garfunkel and they looked at me like please give me some more shrimp cat snacks. Conrad woke up from a cat nap and ate up three pieces of the Purina Shrimp Cat Snacks while I had my back turned from him for a few seconds.

Maggie and her sister seemed to be delighted with their Purina midday shrimp cat snack. I laid out some pieces for Onyx to eat while I gave my cats fresh water to drink. I went back to were I had placed the snacks for Onyx and they were all gone. My cats had a purrfect afternoon cat snack.

I gave all of my cats next door some Purina Pro Plan Protein Shrimp Cat Snacks from Chewy.Com. Russ, Cali, Mr. Gray and Faith met me at the door so they got served first. Faith is a slow eater so Mr.Gray got plenty of Purina cat snacks. I put some in Bella’s cat bed and she ate up every single morsel of her snacks. Nicole, Peter, Hilford and Sherlock are very shy but they came out to enjoy the tasty Purina PP Protein Cat Snacks from Chewy.Com. Addi still lets her now two year old kittens eat their fair share of snacks before she will eat any herself but she could not resist 100 %  after she ate one piece she needed two more right now and no later.

Amazing Grace and What Grace Means

Acts 14:22

Thus he builds our character, strengthens our faith, and prepares us to help others.

Timothy 6 : 11 – 21

Follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness, – fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life I give thee charge in the sight of God keep the commandments – be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate. Grace be with thee.

Ephesians 2 : 1 – 10

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ [ by grace we are saved; ] For by grace are ye saved through faith : and not of ourselves : it is the gift of God,  For we are his workmanship created in Jesus Christ unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

peace memorial

John Newton wrote the song Amazing Grace and he became a converted slave trader and set all of his slaves free. Some highlights from the song Amazing Grace – how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear and Grace my fears relieved the hour I first believed. I was blind but now I see.  Grace has bought me safe – Grace will lead me home.

 

Gods Grace is universal and available to all persons. Living in accordance with Grace orients life around God’s gift of salvation. Grace is one as the tribune God is one.

Grace in the Methodist tradition is is manifested in three actions:

Prevenient Grace – means divine love that surrounds all humanity and Gods presence and power reside throughout all creation.

Justifying Grace –  is another word for pardon. It is the forgiveness of all of our sins and our acceptance with God.

Glorifying Grace – The gospel of Christ knows of no religion, but social, no holiness, but social holiness Gods Glorifying Grace will bring to completion God’s final reign of righteousness which is Gods power over evil and death.

Grace leads us to do amazing and awesome things in our life with God helping us along. Grace means helping people in need and doing good works and having patience, faith and being genuine and kind to others. Show your love to others and let them know how much you appreciate them being a part of your life. Be slow to anger and quick to forgive. May the Grace of God be with you today and everyday of your life.

My house cats Kohl, Garfunkel, and Conrad loved their Merrick BackCountry Salmon Freeze- Dried Cat Treats from Chewy.Com. I gave Kohl some treats and they disappeared lickety split. Garfunkel’s treats disappeared like streak lightening. I placed Conrad’s Merrick cat treats in a treat dispenser ball and he got them out in record time to devour them.

I saw Onyx my outdoor cat by the house one evening and I gave him some Merrick FD Salmon cat treats and he seemed very happy with his evening cat snack.

20170409_200613

I gave my cats in the other house some Merrick cat treats again the next morning. Cali, Mr. Gray, Hilford, Nicole, Faith, Bella and Sherlock ate up their Merrick cat treats quickly so Mr. Gray would not gorge himself on any snacks that the other cats did not get to soon enough. Mr. Gray is quick and eats all of his food up right away.

20161203_044910

Kohl, Garfunkel, and Conrad loved their Merrick BackCountry Salmon Freeze- Dried Cat Treats from Chewy.Com. I gave them more treats two days later and they remembered them from the other day and ate them up with gusto and pleasure.

My Mother was a Young Adult Librarian at the Mason City Public Library located in Mason City, Iowa for many years. I purchased a sculpture called Little Red Riding Hood to honor my Mother. My Mother loved to read books and valued education. The sculpture is placed on the library grounds to honor my Mother. My Mother worked at a college library and then she was an English teacher for one year until she met my Father and they got married. She worked at the Mason City Public Library after she was married.

Cats Toy Box

Cats like a variety of toys to play with. They get bored with the same old cat toy day after day. Cats like bright colored balls to chase around the house after or throw up in the air. My cats love toys filled with catnip. The catnip toys entice your cat into playing with the toy for a long period of time without losing interest in the cat toy.

20151227_112008

Some of my cats favorite cat toys are : circle ball toys, small stuffed animals, toy mice that are gray,black or white in color, an air wand with a fish on the end of the string, plastic frogs, plastic reptiles, sparkle balls, singing bird. catnip filled toys of all shapes ,etc.

I watch what types of toys my cats like best and then when the cat toy is worn out I replace it with a similar cat toy. I have purchased a lot of singing bird cat toys, mice,balls, and catnip filled toys. My cats will spend a lot of time batting balls around in a circle toy for cats.

20151112_121252

I purchased the robotic cat Zoomer and my cats were very fascinated with him. They would follow after him when he purred and moved his tail around. Zoomer made a loud hissing noise that rather shocked my cats for a little while. They decided the robotic cat was not so bad after all as he was not in competition for any of their cat treats.

I let my cats chose the toys they want to play with for the day. At the end of the day I put all of their cat toys back in their box. The next day some of the toys from yesterday reappear along with different toys. Sometimes a toy they seem to have forgotten about will be a new highlight of interest for them once again.

20151127_142718

I buy a lot of my cat toys online and at my local pet stores. I like to watch demos of cats playing with cat toys in stores or online as it gives me some sort of an idea on how my cats may interact with that particular cat toy. I hope you and your cat will be entertained for hours with your cats new toys.

Legacy

Ecclesiastes 2 : 21

For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.

Joel 1 : 1 – 3

The word of the Lord came to Joel the son of Pethuel.

Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers ?

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

What will be your Legacy of how people remember you after you are gone. Give some of your time to help others that are in need. You can help people by listening to them, visiting with them, comforting them and taking them to appointments and by just being a genuine good and caring steward.

20150825_054109

What is your Legacy that you have done on earth to strengthen your spiritual Legacy with God. Have you been the best steward that you possibly can be while you are hear on Earth ? Have you spread Gods good works wherever you go ?  Always remember the Lord came to serve and not to be served. Remember The Golden Rule : Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

butterfly

Will you leave a Legacy that you will be proud of for future generations to come ? Have you made your parents proud of you while you have lived on Earth ?  I always strive to do things that will honor the values and teachings that I have learned from my parents and from God.

20151027_140536

Your Legacy is not about wealth or money it is all about making the World a better place with the time that God gave to you on Earth. Make other peoples lives easier for them while you are on Earth and you will have left an everlasting Legacy that would make your children, parents and God proud of you. God Bless all of you today and always !

Kohl My Ease Dropping Tom Cat

My friend and I were visiting on the phone, I asked her what all that noise was in the background. I said I did not know it must be on her end of the line. It sounded like a bell going off at times and someone hitting something while we were talking on the phone. If we did not say much there was not as much background noise. It sounded like chimes at one point during our conversation. My friend said is that your Grandfathers clock, I said no I was at the opposite  end of the house from where the clocks were located.

20170120_075558

As we continued to talk on the phone it sounded like someone tapping a pencil and a bell dinging at times. We finally hung up as it was hard to visit with all of that background noise.

I went to the other room because it sounded like there was a phone off of the hook. Sure enough there was the other cordless phone turned on that was making all of the noise with Kohl’s help while my friend and I were visiting on the phone. Kohl had turned the phone on with his paw and did not like the noise coming from the phone so he kept hitting the phone with his paw. The bell was a clock that has a bell for the half hour and the chime noise was indeed my Grandfathers clock.

img_20150815_130542

I called my friend back and said that the noise had been caused by Kohl my ease dropping Tom cat. She thanked me for calling her back. Case solved perpetrator  Kohl the ease dropping Tom cat.

Cats watch us do things and they catch on very quickly sometimes for our benefit and sometimes to our detriment. Cats have watched there owners play a piano, yoga poses and much more and they copy what they have observed their owners doing. Have your cats learned what you want them to learn for your benefit ?

Motivation

What motivates you in life ?  I like to plan out my days or go with things on the spur of the moment. If I have a task that I want to finish I will stick with it until I have my task completed. I never want to start a job and then quit halfway through the job.  I like to stain decks and paint buildings as it gives me a great sense of accomplishment to see the finished project.

20150827_032314

I have always enjoyed writing. Writing motivates me everyday as I can share my knowledge and experiences with others. I love to read history books and I try to read 30 to 100 pages a day in my book. I am motivated to learn something new everyday of my life. I enjoy life long learning classes as we are never to old to learn new and interesting subject matter.

I enjoy being a Lay Minister with my local church. I have learned a lot about spreading Gods good works. I enjoy visiting with people and trying to make their day brighter and better in any way that I can with Gods help. I am very motivated and rejuvenated when I am spreading Gods good works.

Wesley Church

My cats are my feline friends that I love to take care of and nurture everyday. My cats are always there for me also. They will lay by my side when I don’t feel well. My cats purr away contentedly when I pat them on the head or scratch them under their chin. Life would not be the same without wonderful pets in the world.

Flosssie

Good friends motivate me to do great things in life. A good friend can always make the dark days bright and wonderful again. Friends are the greatest gift in all that they do to help us when we are in dire need. Without friends a person would be truly lost in life’s journey. God bless all of our wonderful and outstanding friends. A friend always gets you and knows where you are coming from and where you want to go.

Travelling motivates me to discover new places and new beauty around the world. Wherever we are from in the world we all strive for the same things in life. I loved visiting the countries that my ancestors came from and the fact that I was able to walk on the same paths that they had in their lifetime.

20151010_131133

Mowing lawn and gardening motivate me as I love the great outdoors and all that nature has to offer. Stay motivated in your life and always make time for friends and God.

Where Should I Travel ?

What kind of places do you want to see in your lifetime ?  If there is a certain place in a movie that you liked you could consider traveling to that location. I wanted to see all of the countries where my ancestors came from. I found it very  interesting walking around Amsterdam and looking at the same exact buildings that my ancestors passed by when they lived there in the 1600 ‘ s.

20150828_032936

I love mountains and therefor I love to travel in Colorado and Switzerland. I love looking at the flatirons in Boulder , Colorado. I love the majestic mountains in Switzerland. I especially love the little village of Giswel ,  Switzerland. The cows wake up early in the morning and you can hear the cow bells on their necks ringing as they walk to the farmers barn to be milked. There is a nice old church at the top of the hill in the village of Giswel , Switzerland that seems to have stood still in time. The sheep in Giswel are very friendly and I fed one of them a little snack. I love traveling to places that have withstood the test of time and are still very appealing to all of my senses.20150825_054109

I love reading history books so I love traveling to places that have a lot of history tied to them. I saw Pearl Harbor , war memorials, Auschwitz , Anne Frank’s House and much more. The things you have read about in history books come to life and you have a richer understanding of the sacrifices that the people went through. People have endured horrific ordeals over the years that no one should have to ever have to go through. It was very heart wrenching to see Auschwitz and Anne Frank’s House.

20150830_072601

Travel while you can your health is a gift not a given. Enjoy traveling around the World and you will appreciate it much more and you will have enriched your knowledge of  the World and the people in it  and you will have broadened your horizons.

Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com

I was provided Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first feed Nulo to my outdoor cats. Maggie loved the texture of her canned cat food as it is soft and easy  for any cat to swallow. Maggie gulped down large chunks of Nulo canned cat food from Chewy.Com. I gave some to Maggie’s sister and she seemed delighted with the Nulo Freestyle canned cat food from Chewy.Com.

My cats in the house next door came running as I opened up a can of Nulo for them to eat. Russ, Mr. Gray, Hilford, Sherlock, and Faith ate up a large portion of the Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com.  Bella growled at my other cats as she ate her portion of Nulo.

The next day I gave Maggie and her sister more Nulo and they ate it up with lightening speed.

I feed my cats in the other house some more Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com. Cali ate up a large amount of Nulo. Russ, Mr. Gray, Hilford, and Bella ate their portion of Nulo with a lot of  gusto and vigor. Bella purrs and growls the whole time she eats her canned cat food. Sherlock came out of hiding along with Nicole and finished up what little was left. Addi still wants to let her fully grown kittens eat up their food before she has any for herself. Addi licks out the canned cat food containers and leaves them sparkling clean.
