Greenies and other Treats

A few cats commented when I sent care packages to Fat Eric and Eric and Flynn on all of the flavors that Greenies come in, they come in five flavors; Oven Roasted Chicken, Ocean Fish, Savory Salmon, Tempting Tuna, and Succulent Beef. Mum says some stores only have a few of the flavors, but the store she stocks up at keeps all five flavors around and also has the best sales, marking them off by 1/3 when they have them on special pricing.

When mum went to the store she bought a bunch of each so she could make sure she had want they wanted. Fat Eric is partial to tuna, but Eric & Flynn can't have the beef. Mum had 4-6 packages of each flavor and then stuffed as many packages as she could into the little boxes to send them. Here is a picture of Fat Eric with his stash, he got at least one bag of every flavor.
Right now I have three flavors waiting in my stash to be eaten,beef, which I haven't had before, the salmon and ocean fish.
Plus when mum went shopping this week, she had a furry good coupon for Pounce treats, money off if she bought two, then a coupon for one free if she bought two! Way to score mum!
So as you can see I have lots of treats at my disposal, just waiting for me to eat. Well, when mum gives me some to eat. I usually have some open of Greenies and Pounce open all the time and get some of both every day.
You guys are furry good at spotting the hummer and the butterfly in the picture on Tuesday. If you didn't find them, mum has marked the picture. Somecat said the butterfly was a zebra butterfly, they are found in the south of the United States, not way up north here. This is a swallowtail butterfly. Both are in the shadows so not the easiest to spot.
Our weather got colder on Thursday and we still have a little bit of now left! Mum was so disappointed that it didn't go away. It will be warmer the next few days, so it should go away now.

Mum went back to work yesterday. But she had a few good days off, she gots lots of cleaning done, her head furs curled, extra sleeps, went to see an exhibit on the Titanic and enjoyed the warm days we had.
Lots of purrs to Miss Ann over at Zoolatry, she will be having her eyeballs fixed over the next month, but it starts today on Friday. Get better soonest.

Something tells me that a cat named "Fat Eric" is partial to a whole lot more than tuna. Heh, heh.

Karen Jo said...

Good for your Mom for stocking up on treats when they are on sale. Pounce was Bos' (my brother's previous cat) favorite.

You're lucky to have a human with some financial savvy. And very nice of her to send some goodies to friends!

It's not nice to keep all of those treats to yourself. Share, man!

We're not getting many treats at all around here.
Mom has us on a d-i-e-t.

Eric and Flynn said...

We are enjoying our Greenies Derby. We love the tuna flavour which we have never had before. We have had the Ocean Fish and the Roast Chicken before, and before Eric was ill, we had the Beef flavour, but now because he isn't allowed to have anything with beef in, mum doesn't let either of us have that flavour.

*thud*

Sorry, that was the sound of me fainting at the sight of all those delicious treats!

I sent you a box today. So look out for it, although it will probably take a couple of weeks to get to you!

PS I saw your mum went to a Titanic exhibit. The Maritime Museum where Cornish Grandma works as a volunteer in Falmouth is running a big Titanic exhibit at the moment, too!

Noir said...

You have ALL those treats?!?!?!? I like the Pounce myself! Happy snacking---and I like the picture of you on the window sill!

Our favorite treats at the moment are the Friskies Beachside Crunch Party Mix, but we like Greenies to, so maybe Momma should get us some more ... Have a great Sunday, furriend!

Hello Derby. Thanks for visiting our blog!

We are overwhelmed by your array of treats! We show our utter ignorance by saying that we did not even know that there are Greenies for Kitties! #1 gets them for Tommy when she can find them (almost never) but has never seen them for kitties! France is waaaaaay behind when it comes to pet stuff!
