Sunday is Marketing Day And That Means.....

Guess what this is for?
Whisky : Mommy....you know I need to taste test that, right?
Whisky : Oooff. Where did you come from. Go away!
Ling : I have to taste test for the kitties!
Into the dehydrator they go...
Tutu : I've appointed ME to stand guard
But honey, you sure you want to? This is going to take a couple of hours
Many MANY hours later........
Tutu : I'm bored, I'm tired and my tummy is rumbling. Is it ready yet?
Tutu : GO AWAY! I was here first
Cosmo : *brat*
Cosmo : I'll do the sniff test...Smells like it's READY!
Cosmo : ....and now the taste test
C O S M O !!!!!!
Okay kids...the jerky is ready. Who wants a piece?
Tutu had to be scruffed or she would have taken everyone's piece
Boomer takes his piece politely while Meow-Me waits her turn
Daddy : You're a little tubby so you're going to have to dance for your piece, Meow-Me
Meow-Me : Why would you even think I'm tubby?
Meow-Me : Can't you see how shapely I am?
Home made chicken jerky!
It was also time to make a fresh batch of food for the kids
Ling : *nom nom nom*
Whisky : I've finished mine. Can I please have some more?
I decided to cook for Whisky after her health scare some years ago. Then when Cosmo had 2 blockages before he turned 2 years old, I decided to cook for all the kitties too. And what a positive difference it's made.  :)

Recently, there have been many incidents concerning Jerky made in China. Those made in the USA were hard to come by so I decided to make my very own. It makes me feel much better knowing exactly what goes into the food the furries consume. :) And having the furries LOVE what I make is icing on the cake.

I LOVE this bloggie and seeing all of the babies so sleek, healthy and shining and seeing the reason why. I knew you cooked for them already, yes, but seeing you in action as it were is such a pleasure.

I love it when Boomie comes over with home made chicken jerky. Now I see how his mommy made it!

Tutu's beautiful expressive eyes just make mom's heart sing. And Meow-Me, you are indeed shapely, you're not tubby at all MOL, you are snuggable. And your woofie sibling Whisky is absolutely gorgeous and expertly groomed. Mom and I love that tailio! Whisky could win a Show if entered. <3<3<3

It's *awesome* you make their treats and food. I wish the boys would even show an interest in human food, raw or cooked. The only thing Nicki likes is yogurt and sour cream. Oh, and maybe one or two pieces of ham (tiny bits) and that's it. Derry won't eat anything human. It's discouraging to me that they don't identify meat as, well, MEAT, but I've given up trying to convince them.

finnhoward said...

Wow, very nice that you make their homemade treats!!

Cory said...

I bet your chicken jerky taste better than anything you can buy in a store...my mom even wants to eat it!!!!

You all are such lucky doggies and kitties to have that great Mom of yours to cook for you. Those are such good pictures of all of you but Whisky is really special. TuTu, you are so like our Two Two.

Tamago said...

The jerky looks so tasty!! Meow-Me, you are very shapely....I know that's muscle on your belly :-)
I used to buy chicken treat from kitty food company, but I began to question quality. So I started to just cook myself. Like you said, it makes me feel better :-)

Lucy the Cat said...

You are so sweet and good and to your kitties! Tutu cracks me up. Annie is like her when it comes to treats. Meow-Me is darling! I love that last picture of Whisky. So sweet!!

meowmeowmans said...

What a great thing to do! We bet those jerky treats taste better than anything that is bought in a store anyway.

Whisky, you are looking extra cute in that last picture!

Joy E. Saga said...

I've seen such contraption - so cool! A dehydrator! Where can i buy it?

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Whoa--Listen, can you let me know that next time this is happening because I definitely want to teleport over. Your Human is *SO* much better than mine! In fact, how'd you like a permanent houseguest? (Boomie, you could come live over here with my Human, okay?)

The Island Cats said...

That looks like some good noms! Can we move in with you guys??? :)

Oui Oui said...

Isn't it nice they love what you cook? We got a good laugh about scuffing Tutu. We love Meow Me's tail! Its one of the best we've seen. You have lots of cool tails there. This is a great post, thanks!

Cat Tee Mission said...

Too cool! I bet the were some very appreciative pets ;)

Roo said...

Ha! Well we're just a bunch of dehydratin fools :P Yap, Mom says we'll try chicken jerky next. What yummy fun! :D

Whisky that photof you with your empty bowl is just priceless :)

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Hannah and Lucy said...

We can see you all enjoyed those tasty morsels and they certainly looked delish. Happy noms.
Thank you for your kind message for Lucy - she is getting better and is eating more. We're just hoping she'll be back to "normal" in a day or two.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Smile With Your Tail said...

You are SUCH lucky babies, you know that right?! Your Mom is brilliant.

PeeS Sorry about those bitey ants Whisky. :(

Pretinha said...

Stunning Tutu was elected as a guard, she is very smart mesmo.E Cosmo is not backwards. Natural food without chemicals is certainly the best choice.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Tutu, if you *really* will share, I'll be on my way right now--I should be there in about--what? four or five hours via tunnel? Save a piece for me, okay?

Willow said...

This jerky looks extra nommy it must be because of all the soopervision by everyone especially you Tutu who waited forever and a day to make sure it was done right. You guys have a great Mommy to make homemade food and treats.

haopee said...

Oh my gosh, Whisky! You look like a stuffed animal! So adorable... LOL. Cosmo! That's because you got too excited.

By the way, this is the first time I've seen a dehydrator.

Meow-me, don't worry. We still think you are the sexiest tubby in the whole world.

Huggies and Cheese,

Haopee

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

WOW, chicken JERKY! *looks expectantly at mommy*

Bommie, you and Meow-me are sooooo polite. Mommy says you were brought up right, as opposed to us hooligans.

(Um, that's not a compliment to us...is it....)
