Meow Mix® and Fresh Step® keep my cat and I happy #WalmartLovesCats

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fresh Step and Meow Mix for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Steve the cat is chilling

Steve is a snarfling hog. I'm sorry, I love him, but it's true. One of the reasons I think he's such a love bug is I used to have to pet him while he was eating so he'd slow down & not choke on his food. Not that it's his fault – he did come to us half-starved. Still, it took a while for him to get used to the idea that there is plenty of food & there will be more when that is gone.

One of the really nice things about Meow Mix® Tender Centers with Vitality Bursts is that it is nutritionally complete for all life stages. Good food matters even when you know your cat's history; it's of paramount importance when you don't.

Steve loves Meow Mix

We were asked to try Meow Mix® Tender Favorites Real Tuna & Whole Shrimp in Sauce,  which is available at Walmart. I haven't bought wet cat food in a very long time. I've never been able to stand the smell. Surprisingly, Meow Mix® Tender Favorites doesn't smell bad at all. I told my dad it almost smells good enough to eat. And Steve loves it. I actually went & purchased quite a few more containers of the Meow Mix® wet cat food & will continue to use it as an occasional treat for Steve.

As for the Meow Mix® Tender Centers with Vitality Bursts; Steve and I both love that the dry cat food has all sorts of good vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help keep Steve's immune system healthy. It also helps him keep a healthy skin, coat, teeth & bones. Plus, Meow Mix® is the only cat food my cat can ask for by name; Meow! 

One of the least pleasant things about having a cat is the litter box. Steve is awesome; what comes out of Steve – not so much. Cat urine stinks, & cleaning up the litter box is an unpleasant task. Fresh Step® Fast Acting cat litter makes taking care of the litter box a lot easier.

Steve the cat likes Fresh Step

First, let me tell you about the dust: There isn't any! Seriously, have you ever had to put new litter in the box with your tee shirt over your nose & mouth? You won't have to do this with Fresh Step® Fast Acting cat litter. There is not dust. (Which, if you can't tell, I think is really cool.) Plus, it smells nice. It's not over-poweringly scented, just a light pleasant smell. It has natural plant extracts & carbon to help eliminate odors naturally. Which it does. And, it's only available at Walmart in a 25lb size, during this promotional period.

Really, even when I'm right there scooping up the clumps, I don't smell anything stinky. It clumps really nice, too. Very absorbent & the clumps don't fall apart.


Right now Walmart and the Fresh Step and Meow Mix partnership are teaming up to encourage you & your cat have a nice life together. Walmart has a page up with tips & links to both Fresh Step® & Meow Mix®. And, supercool, you can earn triple Paw Points between now & June 30th on every Fresh Step® Fast Acting cat litter purchase at Walmart. You can earn cool stuff for you or your kitty.

    a pretty guy! And he looks like the kitty on the box! If I could, I’d be an old cat lady with so many kitties you couldn’t find me.

    Luckily, since I was pregnant my husband has the kitty litter duty and I am not complaining at all. Love my cat but not a fan of the kitty litter.

    Cats are awesome pets! They are sweet, fun to be with, and really cute. I heard that Meow Mix is a great product and I would certainly check out this product. :)

    We don’t have any cats right now, but my mom used to buy Meow Mix for our kitty growing up. I kind of wish we had a cat, but my husband is not a cat person.

    Oh what a sweet kitty! I have never heard of a cat needing to be rubbed so that he didn’t choke on his food! I’m glad that you gave him a loving home – and that he has yummy food and a pleasant litter box :)

    When cats can do things like save little kids from a dog attack (did you see that?). They deserve good stuff like good kitty litter. :)

    Stave is a little cutie! My husband buys the litter and cat food and takes care of our cats since I am allergic, but I think this is the litter that we use. ;)

    People don’t often realize how important it is to select the right pet care products. Some brands are just better than others.

    Such a cute kitty def deserves to be kept happy. Like you I don’t like the smell of some cats foods. Good to know that Meow Mix Tender Favorites isn’t that strong.
