One of the most exciting things we did recently was adopt two kittens from a coworker’s friend. They were in an unfortunate situation, and we feel blessed that we were able to take in these sweethearts. We lost our cat last February, and we finally felt that it was time to add another member to our family.
It breaks my heart sometimes to see all the cats that are stranded in shelters or rescue center, and I wanted to do something positive to give back since we did not adopt from a rescue center. One of the things I wanted to do was create a new cat welcome home kit. We have always fed our cats Purina® Friskies®, so I added it to our cat welcome home kit.
Purina® Friskies® is one of those great products that helps cats live a full life with lots of tastes and types available, including dry food, wet food, and even treats! Any pet owner loves giving their cats the best possible food*.
While I was out shopping for my kittens, it occurred to me that I could give back to show how grateful I was to have our kittens. I created my cat welcome home kit to donate to a rescue shelter that adopts cats from a local pet store. That way, when a cat got adopted, they would have a special present to take home with them. The store was so grateful for the kind gesture, and assured me that it would be put to good use.(I wish I could have shared a photo, but they had strict photo policies)
So how can you create one? Read on!
Incredibly Easy New Cat Welcome Home Kit:
- Purina® Friskies® dry food(the flavor is up to you)
- Purina® Friskies® wet food(I chose flavors that complimented the dry food)
- Purina® Friskies® treats
- Soft bed liner
- Water and food dishes
- Some fun toys
- Tidy Cats™ 24/7 Performance Litter with Tidy Lock™ odor protection
- Decorative basket for carrying all these cool items
To make up the cat welcome home kit, simply:
- Take a basket to serve as a carrier. For safety’s sake, never use a decorative basket for your cat. Only used a bed that is made specifically for cats.
- Add the soft and fuzzy liner.
- Next, add in your cat food.
- Insert the food dishes.
- Lastly, add in the fun toys.
We also sent along a jug of Tidy Cats™ 24/7 Performance litter. I love that this litter has guaranteed TidyLock™ Protection that keeps odors from causing Stanky Face. Since our cats litter box is near our bedroom, this is very important to us.
I chose not to cover the basket with plastic so that it would be safe for the new kitty when he or she comes home with their new family.
What was nice about this new cat welcome kit was that I was able to purchase the food, treats, and litter for it during our regular shopping trip to Giant Food Stores. Not having to make a separate trip to the pet store for food and litter really helps me with my busy life, and everything is located in the pet care aisle.
When you work full-time, have children in sports, and are in the middle of college applications, not having to stop in another store is such a time saver. Plus, I love my Savory Magazine from Giant Food Stores, and glad I was able to pick that up too! There is some great information about Purina® products in it, so make sure you pick up your copy today.
And while I was at Giant Food Stores, I made sure I grabbed a second jug of cat litter for my own kittens. They, of course, had to investigate. Silly kittens!
For those that love to save money, you can SAVE $2.00 on any one (1) package of Purina® Tidy Cats® brand Cat Litter when you purchase one (1) Purina® Friskies® OR Fancy Feast® Wet Cat Food Item. (good thru 12/30/16). Any pet owner will definitely love this offer!
So whether you are adopting a new cat or kitten or maybe you just want to give back, rest easy knowing how convenient it is to shop at Giant Food Stores and save on your new family pet.
