Growing Old with my Cats and Purina ProPlan


Compensation was provided for this post by Purina

I haven’t told this story but since I am talking about my cats today I wanted to share how they saved my life. Though this post is sponsored by Purina , I have been meaning to tell it for a long time.

I was heavily depressed and heading toward divorce. I was so down that I barely spoke to my husband or children. I never wanted to do anything but sit around the house. I felt numb. I didn’t feel sad, I just felt nothing. My husband was not willing to let me continue to waste away so he gave me the best gift anyone has ever given me: he gave me the love of our two cats. He picked me up and told me we had a surprise. He took me to Petsmart to talk to the Save our Strays coordinator. We picked out a brother and sister who were slightly older because they are not as much in demand and I wanted them to have a happy home. I also wanted to keep them together.

The first night I was cuddling Artemis and Alexander Ovechcat, who had been hiding the whole day, came out and started purring and cautiously rubbing on my hand. I just started crying. It was like months of tears. Two perfect animals now had a home because we saved them. We gained two loves in the space of a day and I was overwhelmed with emotion. I spent weeks laying on the couch with them while I finally got my medication adjusted. They were my anchor. They saved me. And because of that I want the very best I can ever give them. They deserve it for putting up with my tears and the kids chasing them around all the time. I recently read that many cats do not get the water they need in their diet. Purina ProPlan has a great article on their site on how a great cat food can be a key way to maintain your cats hydration. And all their formulas are high in protein, featuring real meat, poultry, or fish.

A great cat food should be tasty and it should be great for your cats health. I want that for my cats. I want them to love their food and they do. I wrote a post recently on how much they like their Purina ProPlan Shredded Blend. They also love the awesome and inexpensive Purina ProPlan wet cat food. You can find out more about the great benefits of it AND save right now with a coupon for BUY FIVE CANS, GET ONE FREE! I love coupons and I love my cats so I stocked up on several different flavors. They have different blends of pasta, vegetables, cheese, or rice added with the real meat. They have tried all of them and liked them so now I just get to sit back and watch them sleep off their food coma in our normal spot on couch. Unless its 100 degrees and then they want on the back porch for some reason. But I am happy to stand with the door open while they decide what they want to do because they are my babies.

Make sure you check out the new Purina ProPlan Wet Cat Food page right now to get the BUY FIVE CANS, GET ONE FREE COUPON so you can save on a great food for your cats!
