“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”
Part of being a crazy pet mom is the duty of spoiling your pets rotten. Unfortunately, with spoiling comes spending money, and money does not grow on any trees by my house. Since starting this blog, I’ve reached out to a few companies for pet related freebies to try out, and I’ve been lucky enough to hear back from a few of them! The first product I received was Salmon Oil. You can click on the link to see my review of it on Amazon, but to make a long story short – it seemed to be a pretty big hit in my house. I started mixing it in with Oreo’s normal food while we were in Philly. I put a squirt in his food every morning, and he happily would chow down. After the first time he tried it, Oreo gave me 5 fishy kisses and a bunch of fur on my new pants as a thank you. Unfortunately, the packaging on the bottle wasn’t that great, and it didn’t survive the car ride home. Now I’m dealing with the fun problem of trying to figure out how to make my car stop smelling like fish! Thank goodness it’s warming up enough outside for me to drive around with my windows down.
When we got home, the cats LOVED ME. Or more specifically, my luggage…which the aformentioned Salmon Oil happened to spill all over. Kitten Little was so excited that he couldn’t contain himself! My normally quiet kitty started singing me a love song (it went MEOWW AAARWW OOORRAOW MEW) while circling around my suitcase, making sure to sniff and lick every angle. When he was finished, he continued to show his gratitude by gifting me a hairball he personally created.
Burger is my little Romeo. Shortly after sniffing the spilled salmon oil, he wooed me with shockingly loud purrs, and began kneading me with all of his might. Then, when I was relaxed and unexpecting, he latched onto my lip with his claw; getting it stuck in the process. Remember kids – Romeo and Juliet isn’t the greatest example of a love story…it essentially was nothing more than a passion-fueled temper-tantrum. Apparently, Burger was keen on making sure that I remembered that. No more fishy oil for him, if that’s the thanks I get!
I can only hope to someday be able to repay even a little bit of the love and joy these little guys bring me.
Hopefully the next product I review will be a little less painful for me (my poor lip!). Until next time…
