That's a Catamazing Puzzle Box Toy!

For our April freebie to review from Chewy.com we opted to not get a food item, since they haven't had a very good track record with me.  This time we asked Natalie for the toy they were offering and lucky for us, we were able to get one before they were all gone. 

Normally I like toys that I can chase, like that evil red dot, my buzzy bug and mousie toys. This toy is a puzzle.  "A puzzle???"  Now you may be thinking, that a puzzle doesn't sound like very much fun because it takes some brain power.  Yes, I had to put my thinker to use for this one.  But it was for a good cause, because when I figured it out, I got my favorite treats.

Alright, I'll show you what it is.


Well, here is the package. I had to show you that because it is CatAmazing.

LL is lucky that she didn't tell me to put it together myself, we woulda had a problem then.

So here is the puzzle box all folded into it's proper form.  You see I'm more interested in the Chewy box to start. Then she finally added a few treats in there.

The object of the game is for the kitty to get the treat out of the box, there are little walls with holes inside the main box that I had to push the treat though, like a maze.

My favorite treats are a kind that are round, so they roll all around inside the CatAmazing puzzle box. I'm not sure if that makes the game easier or more difficult. 

Gah!  This is so frustrating! You think you have it going out the side and then something blocks it or it gets away.  

I was able to figure it out pretty quickly, without too much stress on the brain waves.  It's rather fun having to work for treats sometimes. I'm happy that she doesn't make me do this for my bed time treats. 

I thank Chewy.com as always, for sending me new products to try, in return for my honest reviews. 

This is Buckwheat, a Chewy Influencer saying, Happy Spring Efurryone!
Hmm, I wonder what I could do to convince the humans that we need to keep this box too...

Cricket Chaser


A cricket came inside a few nights ago.  I tried to chase him a little bit, but it wasn't very productive.  LL decided that we didn't want to have a cricket friend in the house so she captured him and took him back outside.

Lazy sunday

It has been a lazy Sunday. I napped on the couch with LL and LM during the F1 race, then I napped on the bed, now I'm napping on the couch.  I love Sundays.


Sorry for the poor lighting.

These treats did not treat me well

I think my Lap Lady is finally realizing that getting the free treat samples from Chewy.com for our reviews is not the best of ideas.  I am a kitty with a sensitive tummy and a very particular palate.  In essence, the epitome of the finicky feline is right here.

So in this episode as my recurring role as a Chewy Influencer review writer, I will be telling you briefly about my experience with Iams Proactive Health, Hairball Care chicken flavor cat treats.


I profess to be a connoiseur of boxes and this one looks like a winner! 

For starters, this package is quite tasty. I am a professional bag licker, you can trust this judgement.

[Long snnnniiiiiiiiiiifffff] Aaah, yes they smell delicious.


*LL," Here Buckwheat, try these new Iams treats that we recieved from Chewy.com.  I see it says to feed 10 nuggets per day to prevent hairballs.  Too bad you are only allowed to have 3 by my rules"

The Wheat, "3? Who came up with this rule anyway? I don't like it"

LL," 3 is the most that you can handle. Plus I want you to stay 12 pounds, not more.  Those treats are 2 calories each. you don't need 20 calories of treats"

The Wheat, "I know nothing of these things you call calories. Is this a game? Don't you usually want more points to win games?"

LL," Well,not exactly little fella, in this game you want lower numbers, but at any rate, let's get on with this review"

The Wheat, "Oh ok, let's do that"

I was able to try a few more than 3 in order to make a full assessment of these treats, and overall they were very yummy and I kept asking for more, however, there was a problem.  The problem was that LL had to clean up piles of vomito de gato after both times that I ate them.  Sorry Iams, but that is not a good way to gain a fan base.  Granted I have a very senstive tummy, we don't know why that is, but there are certain treats that do that to me, and these were one of those unfortunately. 

On the bright side, our neighbor has a plethora of cats who are able to eat whatever treats they are given, so they are now the recipients of my treats that get the boot.

I do always appreciate getting the free treats in return for my unbiased opinions from my friends at Chewy.com, whether I yak them back up or not.  Treats are very hit or miss with me, and the ones that I like today, I may not like tomorrow.  So, we'll keep trying. #chewyinfluencer

*For those who don't know, LL = Lap Lady.
I received these goodies free of charge from Chewy.com in an exchange for my honest review.


Sunday Snoozeday

I hope your Sunday was as relaxing as mine has been.  I've taken about 7 naps so fa r.
