Wellness Core Simply Shreds for Cats from Chewy.Com

I was provided Wellness Core Simply Shreds for Cats from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

My outdoor cat Maggie gulped down her Wellness Core Tuna & Shrimp Recipe in broth. Maggie’s sister ate up her portion quickly also. Maggie kept looking at her sister to see if she could steal a morsel of her food to eat but she had no luck whatsoever in her devious endeavor.

Wellness Core contains no grains, by products, wheat, soy, corn, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Wellness Core Simply Shreds from Chewy.Com has only four ingredients. The ingredients in Wellness Core are tuna, fish broth, water for processing and shrimp. Wellness Core has only 33 calories per serving that make for a tasty side or snack for your feline friend. Wellness Core nutritional philosophy that cats, given their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat is the perfect side or snack for your cat.

My cats next door were excited to get a new cat snack. Sherlock is very shy but he ate and ate away at the Wellness Core Simply Shreds Tuna & Shrimp Recipe in broth from Chewy.Com. Bella was eating and licking up any little bit of Wellness Core that she could find. Nicole came out of hiding to try her new cat snack and she was happy as a lark swallowing the flaked Tuna and Shrimp in broth. I gave Cali some and she ate up every little morsel. Mr. Gray moves like the wind whenever a cat snack is presented to him so he up up more then his fair share. Hilford was growling at the other cats while he ate his Wellness as if to say I love this go to your area and let me eat in peace. Russ kept coming back for more. Addi always eats after her kittens are done eating but she did get to enjoy some. Faith kept following me around the house for more Wellness Core Simply Shreds. Peter came out of hiding when I left the house and licked up any unnoticed pieces of shrimp or tuna that my other cats had missed which was not many pieces.

Are You On A Round About In Life ?

Are you stuck on a round about in your life that you seem not to be able to get off of. Don’t keep going around and around on the round about in your life. Seek for changes in your life and get out of your old routine and learn from your mistakes. Take the road less traveled and learn something new and see new things and get the most that you possibly can get out of life with the time you are given here on Earth.

20170607_194844

Make positive changes in your life so you can help someone make positive changes in their life. If you do not branch out and learn new things you become stagnate and do not achieve the things in life that you are capable of achieving. Look to God for help finding your direction in life along with advice from your parents and friends.

20170726_202712

Strive to make God, your parents and family proud with the path you have chosen for your life. Shoot for the stars with your life and settle for nothing less. You are the only one that can make positive and productive changes in your life. Surround yourself with like minded people that will not let you stagnate and will lead you to being a better more productive person inside and out.

20170726_202454

Life is never easy but always remember to get off the round about quickly. Decide to get off the round about right away. Do not dwell on bad news. Do not dwell on the past for it is over and you cannot change its outcome. Make new memories in your life everyday that you are here on earth. Bring Joy, Hope, Peace, and Love into other peoples lives everyday and the round about will move along  in a steady and healthy pattern so everyone can enjoy life with peace and harmony with God by their side.

MY Cats Give Me Joy, Peace and Love

Holding and patting your cat can put you in a peaceful place. Watching a cat playing and frolicking along and having a good time outdoors in nature is very peaceful and relaxing. A cat sleeping contentedly or cats cleaning each other is peaceful indeed. Mother cats show great love toward their kittens by nursing them and licking them clean and letting their kittens play with their tail. Cats give you joy when they meet you at the door when you come home from work. Just having a cat sit on your lap lowers your blood pressure and puts you in a better frame of mind after a hard day.

20170716_210308

Cats love you unconditionally. Cats follow you through the house and they keep a keen eye on what you are up to in your home. My cats entertain me with their antics. It is fun to watch a cat chase a ball, laser light, their tail or a robotic toy through your house. Cats seem to know when you are not feeling well and they will stay close to you 24/7. Cats have many comforting qualities such as their sweet purrs and their tender touch of their paw on your arm or hand.

20170311_073124

Cats love their owners that treat them right and fairly. Cats have waken up their family to alert them to a fire, gas leak and a severe storm such as a tornado. My Siamese cat that I had when my Mother died meowed mournfully at the edge of the bathtub for a week after my Mother died.

20151227_112008

Cats become small little family members that we love and adore just as much as they love and adore us. Cats give us comfort, love, peace and joy every single day that they enrich our lives with their presence and grace. Our cats give us all that they have day after day unconditionally.

The Little Red Ridding Hood Sculpture was unveiled at approximately 10 AM on August 8th, 2017 at The Mason City Public Library located in Mason City, Iowa in  honor of my parents Mr. & Mrs. Elmer B. Weers.

unveiling

Mary Markwalter the Director of the Mason City Public Library gave a wonderful dedication speech about the Little Red Ridding Hood Sculpture in honor of my parents.  For more information on the library go to : mcpl.org.

wolf

I gave a dedication speech about the Little Red Ridding Hood sculpture in honor of my parents. My Father farmed all of his life in Mason City, Iowa and both of my parents had rental property in the Mason City area. My Mother worked in a college library for two years and she was once a school teacher and worked in the Mason City Public Library for many years. She was a young adult librarian, she worked in the reference room and at the circulation desk. The wolf sculpture represents the free spirit of the wolf and all of us have free spirit’s and we are free to read books and  learn knowledge that will last us a lifetime. A librarian spreads knowledge through books one book at a time until the books fill a vast library of knowledge that you can use everyday in your life. My Mother was kind to people and she would always go the extra mile to help people out at the library. My Mother would find books for them, help them with genealogy and much more.

20170808_100845

We should serve God, Honor Thy Mother and Thy Father, be kind, compassionate and loving. Bring Joy, Hope, Love and Peace into peoples lives everyday. Always remember the Lord came to serve and not to be served.

Your Legacy is how people remember you after you are gone. Have you left a legacy that will be proud of you for future generations to come ?  Have you made God and your parents proud of you while you have lived on Earth ? Always try to do things that will honor the values and teachings from God and your parents. Your Legacy is not about wealth or money it is all about making the World a better place with the time that God gave 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.

Isaiah 64- 8       But now, O Lord thou art our Father, we are the clay, and thou our potter, and we are the work of thy hand.     We all start out as a formless ball of clay and God leads us along to form the perfect shape for our lives. We have many purposes on earth : mother, father, caregiver, comforter, teacher, lawyer, farmer, librarian, minister, builder, doctor, and so many more necessary professions on earth. Let God make you the vessel that you are supposed to be on earth. You want to be a vessel that will enrich other peoples lives. Always be a good steward so people can see Gods light shining through you and all that you do. Do what you excel in doing and always learn from your mistakes. No one is perfect but strive for the best that you can be and spread Gods good works and you will be the perfect vessel on earth. Go out today and be Gods vessel.

We had a wonderful reception in the Mason City Room at the public library following the unveiling of the Little Red Ridding Hood Sculpture. Mary told us the history behind the book Little Red Ridding Hood which was quite interesting.

20170808_103313

I saw the sculpture that I purchased to honor my parents on the River City Sculptures on Parade Route which is  a 1.7 mile walk designed to lead people on a looping route to the Cultural Crescent and back to the central core of Mason City, Iowa.

A special Thank You to the Mason City Public Library, The Chamber of Commerce , the gifted people that make the sculptures, my friends and to everyone that helped me honor my parents today and for future generations to come. God bless you in all that you do.

In Memory Of My Cat Onyx

Onyx was born on my farm in the winter. He lived in a building that had heated cat beds and heated water to drink. His Mother was an excellent huntress and Onyx grew up to be an excellent mouser.

20170409_200613

Onyx died by the cat building and the grain bin not far from my house last evening. Onyx was ten years and seven months old. I buried Onyx on my farm and I placed a marker on his grave. The cat tombstone says : You have left our lives but will never leave our hearts.

Onyx was a wonderful looking gorgeous black Tom cat. Onyx was part Siamese, Persian, Himalayan and domestic short hair. Onyx had a shorter nose like a Persian cat.  His coat was very sleek and he was a neat and trim gorgeous cat.

20160106_124613

All of the kittens that have been born on my farm are Onyx’s offspring. Kohl and Conrad two of my house cats are Onyx’s offspring.

20150430_180745

Onyx is the father to Nicole and Peter next door. Onyx is the Grandfather to Sherlock, Hilford and Mr. Gray and two more kittens that I gave away to a wonderful and loving home. Onyx is also the father to a lot of  the cats in my neighborhood.

Onyx was an excellent father to his kittens they could play with his tail or wrestle with him and he did not mind it at all. He taught his kittens to be excellent mousers. Onyx loved to watch his kittens play with leaves and he was always kind and loving toward his kittens and their Mother’s.

Onyx was always on patrol for any mice that he could spot in the ditch by my house. I don’t think any mice escaped Onyx’s keen eyes and his excellent hearing and hunting skills.  He kept my place almost completely rodent free all on his own. When I would drive to town or come home from being in town I would always spot Onyx hunting in the ditch by my house.

I will miss Onyx greatly. He was a kind and gentle Tom cat. Onyx had a blood line that went back to my very first cat by the name of Flossie. We had a Himalayan Tom cat at one time and a black and white female cat that was part Siamese, Persian and Himalayan and Onyx is a decedent of them also.  There is a picture  of Onyx, Kohl, and Conrad on this post. In memory of my beloved cat Onyx.

Respect

What does it mean to have respect for someone ? You care about the person and you treat them as you would want to be treated. Respect is a two way street if someone does not respect you it is very hard to respect them. You must have consideration and honor for a persons well being as one aspect to the standard of respect. Sometimes respect has to be learned through your actions as to how to treat others honorably and with complete and total respect toward themselves and others. Your actions speak louder then words.

20170607_194844

Do you feel compassion, love, joy and hope while you are around a person you respect if not their is actually no respect in your relationship with that person. By addressing a person as Doctor or Mr. or Mrs.,etc. shows a sign of respect for that person. A simple act of holding a door open for a person shows a sign of respect. To show a sign of concern for peoples well being and visiting the sick and helping the poor is respectful and shows the sign of a good steward.

20170726_202712

I have always found it easy to respect my elders and other people in authority. I respect other peoples property and treat it as if it was my own. If you borrow something from someone give it back to them in same condition it was in when  you borrowed it from them or return it in better condition.

Do not take people for granted. Show appreciation often. Do not make snap judgments about people as you may have the same fault yourself and not even see it in you. Always remember respect will get you much farther in life then disrespect ever will. Respect God, property, animals, people and always be truthful, compassionate, loving and caring.

My Cats & Their Relationships With Other People

Some of my cats are very friendly and outgoing.  I have some cats that are very Leary of other people  and like to be by themselves. Cats are very independent creatures and warm up to other people on their own terms and conditions.

I have cats that love to picked up by other people and they love to be patted and scratched under their chin. My Calico cat Cali loves all people and will not leave them alone until they pat her on the head and hold her for awhile. Russ is a light cream colored cat and he is very affectionate and loving. Faith is a gray and white tabby cat that loves to rub across your legs and for you to hold her while she purrs and purrs away.

20150308_151336

Peter, Hilford, and Sherlock are very Leary of all people. If a cats parents are Leary of other people their kittens seem to inherit that trait. Lizzie and Onyx are the parents of Peter, Nicole and Conrad. Onyx and Lizzie are outdoor cats that have not been socialized with people so they tend to be very Leary of all people in general.

Peter

It is very important to interact with kittens when they are very young to get them socialized with humans early in their lives or they may always be a bit on he wild side. Play games with your kittens and hold them and pat them on their head and talk very softly and gently to them and they will turn out to be very loving and social as adult felines.20150501_200027

 

Cats tend to get very close to their owner and tend to be a bit Leary of people they don’t know. When I hand my cat to another person to hold and pat on the head I stay in an area where my cat can always see me and then she feels more at ease with the new person that is now holding her.

I hope your cat turns out to be a socialite.

I gave some Purina Bites to Garfunkel, Kohl, and Conrad. Kohl just inhaled his salmon cat bites.

My cats were sound to sleep on my bed and I placed some Purina salmon cat bites on my bed and they woke up immediately to devour them. Conrad and Garfunkel keep smelling the package as if to say Mom open this up again and give us more Delicious Purina Pro Plan Savory Bites Salmon cat treats from Chewy.Com. Conrad rolled the package off the bed hoping it would spill its delicious contents on the floor but with no such luck. Kohl was having a cat nap in my recliner and I placed two treats by his nose and he ate them up immediately with no delay at all. It was Garfunkel’s birthday yesterday and he enjoyed extra treats for his birthday.

Center Yourself

Psalm 31 : 3 – 7

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for they names sake lead me, and guide me.

Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me; for thou art my strength.

Into thy hand I commit my spirit : thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

I have hated them that regard lying vanities : but I trust in the Lord.

I will be glad and rejoice in my mercy : for thou hast considered my trouble ; thou hast known my soul in adversities ;

Center yourself with God. Put God first and foremost and center your life around God. God knows when you need him and he will always answer your call for help and guidance in your life. He will guide you in a direction that will help you and others become what his plans for you are here on Earth.

20150830_072601

Be humble and kind and caring in all works that you put forth. Be compassionate and always try to think if I had the same problem that person has how would I want them to act around me. By centering yourself with God you will be able to answer questions like these in the proper way each and every time.

Be yourself and do not try to impress people that are not worth impressing. Your true friends know what you are all about and do not need you to impress them. We show are true intentions through our actions not our words.

20151027_142913

God should always come first and then family and friends. God will get you through the darkest of moments in your life. Our lives can and do take many turns in our lifetime. Always reflect is this the turn that God wants me to make in my life at this particular moment in time. Think before you act. Do not send a complaint letter until you have let it sit for three days as you may not find it necessary to send it anymore after you have cooled down. Never react to quickly without thinking things over.
