Happily Ever After with Meow Mix® & Fresh Step® #WalmartLovesCats

This post brought to you by Fresh Step and Meow Mix. All opinions are 100% mine.


Steve has really enjoyed his Meow Mix® Tender Centers Salmon & Turkey Flavors with Vitality Bursts. Wanna know how I’m absolutely sure? Because my Snarfling Hog managed to eat an entire 13.5 pound bag of cat food in less than 4 weeks. That’s in addition to his twice a week container of Meow Mix®Tender Favorites Real Tuna & Whole Shrimp in Sauce.

Both cat foods are perfectly balanced nutritionally, so I’m not overly-concerned about Steve getting too much of one thing or not enough of another. And he isn’t fat, so I’ll just assume a growth spurt & continue to feed him the yummy cat food he asks for by name, for a happier cat ;)


Know what we’re not out of? Fresh Step® Fast Acting litter. I’m used to changing litter out completely if you can still smell it after scooping. In the past, this has meant a complete change out of litter every 3-4 days. A box lasted maybe 2 weeks.  Fresh Step® Fast Acting litter’s natural carbon and plant extracts really do act fast to neutralize odors instantly. The 25 lb box, available only at Walmart during the promotion period, has lasted a month. And, it’s still going strong.

Both Meow Mix Tender Centers® Salmon & Turkey Flavors with Vitality Bursts & Fresh Step® Fast Acting litter are available at Walmart, & I will definitely be picking both up this weekend. Food Steve loves, litter that I love, & the convenience of Walmart make for a much easier life for both of us.

    My cat is very strange. First he sleeps until the afternoon, and then he goes over to spend some time at the neighbors house because they have a cat over their and he sits with it and plays. He hardly stays at home! Only to eat and sleep!!

    Our cat is getting pretty old he sleeps a lot more now. He is spoiled and waits for me to lift him up to the table he eats his food on. It is on the back porch and he doesn’t even want to bother to jump anymore, why jump when you can get lifted I think he figures

    My kitty likes to watch TV – he’s especially impressed with the Animal Planet. And sure, he can’t live a single day without watching at birds through the window. He probably thinks he’s hunting on them in that way))

    My parents have a cat that is 14 years olf. Her name is Kiwi, a long-haired calico. A day in her life consists of mainly sleeping at this point; she can usually be found under her favorite bushes outside, or in her bed in their garage.

    Your cat’s a beauty. My MILs cat used to hide and jump out at their little dog when he was a kitten. It was pretty darn hilarious to watch. :)

    My cat loves to sit on my front porch and sleep.

  45. 45

    My moms cat just sleeps all day. She will eat in between her naps, but generally you can find her on one couch and then the other. She moves from couch to couch. Lazy cat.

    My cat loves to run outside all day. He never wants to come inside. Im not sure what he gets to do for his every day adventures!

    I have 5 cats! A day in their lives, I would imagine, is quite cushy and full of fun and naps. I am operating on a whole 4 hours of sleep today because they just so happened to think all last night was play time. All throughout the night they were up on the bed, down on the floor, chasing and wrestling each other, meowing and hissing. Oh the joys…

    I don’t have a kitty right now, but my last one Bart, was a thief! He would steal anything he could find – keys, pieces of paper, recipe cards left on the counter. Even when I moved I didn’t find his stash. I can’t wait to get another cat.

  53. 53

    Well lets see here. Callie my 7 year old likes to give head butts. She’s my sweetie pie, that loves sitting in windows. Norton my 1 year old likes to torture the puppy and Elliott my baby is full of energy but so sweet. He likes to play with his toy mouse and get on counters lol

    My cat lives the stereotypical cat lifestyle. Finn likes to sleep all day and play all night. If he doesn’t get his loves exactly when he wants it he jumps on my kitchen counter and starts knocking things to ground. Recently he has started trying to sit on my shoulders while I’m at the computer but he’s so fat that it isn’t working out so well.

    My cat eats in the morning. She usually lays around most of the day but will come out once in a while to rub up against someone. She also likes to take a couple drinks out of the bath tub faucet throughout the day. Thanks.

    I don’t have my own cat. We have a grey neighborhood cat that likes to warm itself on the culvert behind the houses. It visits at least once a day on the back porch for a head scratching and a treat.

    A day in the life of my cat…LAZY – every day is like a spa day where she is the queen and we are her servants. I’ll trade places any day :)

    my cats wait outside my door to wait for us to wake up then the nudging begins so we know our kitties are hungry. Then they sleep all day until right before i’m about to go to bed the two cats usually play fight for a bit and then sleep some more.
