A Tale of Two Kitties

True Life: I am a crazy cat lady.  If you know me at all, or follow me on social media, you know that my girls are a big part of my life.  Roxy and Shadow could not be more different in their personalities, likes, or even stories, but they do agree on one (and only one) thing: IAMS brand cat food.

We've had Roxy for almost 5 years and Shadow for a year and a half.  Roxy is your typical rescue cat adoption; she was brought to the shelter as a very young kitten after being born to family's un-fixed house cat.  We adopted her when she was 8 weeks old, and she's lived your classic cat life ever since.  Now Shadow is a different story.  You can read about how we found her here.  Since we adopted her, we've discovered that she's a little feral (but still so friendly), plays with her toys to kill them (no toy lasts more than a couple of weeks before getting shredded around here), and definitely has alpha-cat instincts.
IAMS brand is a lifelong brand for cats (and dogs) and offers formulas by life stage and common needs.  Since our girls are indoor cats, we feed them IAMS ProActive Health: Indoor Weight & Hairball Care dry food.  
The food definitely gives them plenty of energy to play with their favorite toy (the laser pointer) and prevents hairballs (that can be awful in the summer when they're shedding like crazy in the heat).  We love that IAMS dry foods also promote oral hygiene for healthy teeth and gums.

We buy our IAMS at Target, and it's the perfect one stop pet shop for us.  On this specific trip to Target, not only did we get the above cat goodies, we also each bought a book, some shoe laces, sunscreen, and a lip balm.  Yeah, you can see Mike below, scoping out the toys that the girls just "had to have" - haha!
I used my Target REDcard to get 5% off everything I purchased, plus an additional 10% off the cat food, treats, and litter with my Cartwheel app.  Right now, you can also get 10% off IAMS dry cat food (through 7/11) and 5% off IAMS wet cat food (through 7/4), and they're not leaving out the dog lovers either - 10% off wet and dry food (through 7/25).

Honestly though, I've been a "cat person" all my life.  Growing up, we always had at least two cats, and as you can see, not much has changed.  
I'm so happy we found IAMS to keep Shadow and Roxy happy and healthy for years to come. Can't beat food they love, right?
  • Do you love Target as much as we do?  
  • Have you tried any IAMS products for your cat or dog?

I grew up with dogs and it was only when my mom got re-married and we moved in to my step-dad's house (I was 15) did I start having cats. I'm a dog & cat person and right now I have two cats, Davey & Pumpkin. My cats love to hoard their toys and it looks like the cats own episode of True Life: True Life: I'm a Cat who Hoardes Toys when I clean out from under the couches. lol.

And yes, I love Target so much! It's one of my favorite stores and I can easily spend hours in there (and frequently do) going from section to section.

I just wanted to let you know that I changed my blog name. It's now http://befilledwithj0y.blogspot.com/ and not nystateofmind5.blogspot.com.

Aww cheers to crazy cat ladies hah. Love your childhood pics with your babies you had growing up. And it's hilarious she "plays to kill" the toys. Such a cat ;)

They are adorable! I like both cats and dogs, but my parents didn't want cats and my husband does not prefer them.

Cat people are the best people. At least that's what I say ;)

Aww, what sweet kitties! I grew up with cats--they were the first pets I ever had. Now I have a dog though, and she goes a little crazy when she even sees a cat, so I think cats won't be happening around here any time soon. :)

Your B&W looks like my Phat Daddy..wish they could meet..hes such a gentle soul but loves to roll and play.. He loves tall grass and is often stalking something in the waves like a tiger but usually just plays with whatever it is then rools around and looks for more action.
