I can’t believe Bosley is going to be turning one next month! He has quickly grown from a tiny kitten to our happy little lion, and it feels like he’s always been here.
A while back, I posted about the learning curve that being a new cat mama brings (catch up here!) but the truth is, I still discover new things all the time about Bosley’s personality traits, general kitty behaviour and wellbeing factoids. He’s become more talkative over the last six months, and loves looking out of the window – he’s the unofficial neighbourhood watch!
One area that can be quite daunting however, is researching what kind of food to feed our furry friends. Wet food, dry food, treats…what should I be looking for, what’s the right portion size and how do I know for sure what is right for my cat?
Luckily, the lovely humans at Lily’s Kitchen also want to do their bit to look after our pets, putting health and happiness at the heart of their natural, wholesome recipes. And when a parcel arrived bursting with their proper food for pets for Bosley to try, he couldn’t wait to get his paws on it!
Our lucky boy has taste-tested every flavour from the wet food range over the last few weeks, plus the chicken and herb flavour dry food and some tasty treats. While he got stuck into the first flavour (Hunter’s Hotpot!), I was reading up on Lily’s Kitchen and their helpful hints for happy meal times.
As well as using sustainably-sourced ingredients, Lily’s Kitchen also use all-natural and grain-free recipes, to aid good digestion, heart and eye health, hydration and a shiny coat. They also have a pretty great sense of humour – check out this Cats Host Crufts video on their YouTube channel!
Having our little guy looking good AND feeling good is all I want for him, so it certainly seems like he’s in good hands… but how did it taste?
I mean, OBVIOUSLY I can’t tell you, but I can share a few observations. First of all, when I opened the packaging, I could really smell the difference. It didn’t smell like cat food, it smelled like real food – the Lovely Lamb Casserole did smell just like a lamb casserole, and not like generic meat and jelly. In fact, I couldn’t really see much jelly.
And it wasn’t just me that noticed a difference, Bosley was purring away before he even started eating his meals! His favourite wet food was easily the Whisker-Lickin’ Chicken (and yes, it smells just like chicken!), and he licked the bowl clean afterwards. We uploaded a little time-lapse video to his Instagram page recently, you can see him tucking in here!
Bosley is also now a huge fan of Lily’s Kitchen Little Lovelies treats, which are hand-baked in the shape of little hearts (aww!). These were a bit bigger than his usual treats, but funnily enough, he seemed to adapt quickly and not let that stop him!
WIN a hamper of Lily’s Kitchen Purr-fect treats!
