Last week I introduced you to the feline members of our family, Buster and Annabelle, as they started the 28 day challenge with Purina One. The Purina One Smartblend I selected (from six!) was Healthy Metabolism because neither of them is at their best weight and we’ve been battling this issue with Buster for several years now.
I thought today I would focus on Buster and what I’ve noticed with him.
Buster has never been one to play with toys. Since we got Annabelle last year, he’s been moving around a bit more as they chase each other around the house. But I noticed recently he has taken ownership of one of our dog’s toys. He’s guarding it in the picture above but to see him play with it after all these years of not liking toys is amazing!
He grabs it and scratches with wild abandon and drags it around the living room.
The cutest thing he’s done all week is squeeze himself into a shoe box. He did have to try to sit a couple of times before it worked, but he got himself in there and sat comfortably for a while. I don’t know if he’s lost weight yet, but it reminded me of my weight loss journey and the joy of fitting in smaller clothes.
He and Annabelle really like the Purina One Smartblend food and I am happy to give them something that makes them both healthy and happy. You can learn more about Purina One at the following sites.
The Purina One website has lots of information about pets. One article talked about why cats like boxes. Here’s what I learned. “When cats explore, one thing they are looking for is a potential hiding space. The experience of jumping and sliding into a box resonates with their instinct to find protected spaces out in the wild where they are able to see their environment without being seen. Providing boxes and other similar spaces for your cat to climb into is an inexpensive way to enrich your home environment.”
