Next week, I'm headed off to Seattle for a 4-day marketing conference. That means Troy will be here with my husband, and it probably means that he'll go on a hunger strike.
I talked about this in a previous blog post, written when I got home from BlogPaws. While I was away at that conference, Troy ate very little. And that's a problem, as he's a thin rescue cat that needs to gain a pound or two in order to get back up to his fighting weight.
Since BlogPaws, Troy has been happily noshing on Weruva's BFF cat food line. But, I wanted to make extra sure that I had just the right food on hand when I hopped on that Seattle train.
Here's where the fun starts.
The Weruva team sent me a great big box of cat foods for Troy to try. Check out how many different products are included. It's a little amazing!
Every evening, Troy's dinner consists of one of these cat food products. I'm keeping detailed notes about what he loves, likes and doesn't really like at all. And when I'm back from my trip, I'll release the names of the top three products he likes most.
And here's the best part.
In that summation entry, I'll announce the details of a sweepstakes I'll be hosting on this blog in concert with the nice team at Weruva. The winner of that sweepstakes will get a variety pack of goodies.
So watch this blog closely for details. And meanwhile, be sure to track my Facebook page for information about how the trials are going. I'm going to tag those posts with a #WhatWillTroyEat hashtag, so they'll be easy to spot.
All jokes and fun aside, this is a serious issue, as cats that go on hunger strikes can face some very significant health problems, including serious kidney disorders. I need to keep Troy eating, so I'll have him for many years. So far, that hasn't been easy.
I'm thankful to Weruva for giving me the opportunity to really explore this old guy's food preferences. And I'm hoping my experimentation will help all of you picky-cat caretakers, too!
So wish us luck! And if your cat has a clear favorite Weruva food, hit me up in the comments. I'd love to know if something should move to the front of the taste-test line!
