Wordless Wednesday – When My Cats Are In The Kitchen, Chaos Ensues!


Weruva Cats In The Kitchen Variety Pack Grain Free Food Pouches Review #ChewyInfluencer Review

Recently, our friends at Chewy.com asked if Magellan and Tsunami – the internationally renown Royal Taste Testers at Create With Joy – are as helpful around the house when it comes to Spring Cleaning as they are at saying 4 paws up or 4 paws down to all the new cat food, cat toys, and pet supplies that adoring brands send their way.

Sad to say, they are about as helpful around the house when it comes to doing chores as the average toddler, teen, and husband is!


For example, I’ve discovered I should never ask Magellan to take out the trash. He’s a natural-born hoarder who’d rather hide and play in the trash than throw it out! Did you know that his favorite hobbies include dumpster-diving and napping in boxes that are bound for the recycle bin!

Making the bed is not his strong suit either. However, if you’re looking for someone to test your mattress or ensure that your freshly laundered sheets are up to snuff – Magellan is your go-to guy!


Fold and put away the laundry? Hah! By the time my cats get done rolling around in it, napping in it, and playing hiding go seek in it, I’m lucky if I don’t end up having to wash and fold the load twice!


And put away their toys? Not on your life! Magellan will pull out every toy he owns – play with them all at once – drag them around the house – and leave us with a mine field to climb over at our own peril!


The one place the cats love to help out is in the kitchen – but often, their contributions result in chaos reigning supreme! For instance, Magellan is constantly loves to go in and out of the cabinets, making sure everything is properly arranged according to his feline sensitivities, sending anything that doesn’t suit his fancy to the floor with a clang and a bang – and he isn’t afraid to jump out of the cabinets to greet me on whim, even if it causes me to skip a heartbeat or two!


Of course, cleaning out the kitchen cabinets has its benefits. Just this week, Magellan discovered an incredible surprise during his early morning rounds: more packets of Weruva Cats In The Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Cat Food pouches than he and Tsunami could count on their combined paws!

Weruva – the brand that makes “people food for pets” – is always a hit in our household because they use only top-notch ingredients like cage-free chicken, wild-caught tuna, and wild-caught mackerel, then add vitamins, minerals and taurine to guard their heart and provide complete and balanced nutrition. Equally important is what they leave out – grains, gluten, and yucky stuff like GMO ingredients, MSG and carrageenan!


Normally, Magellan and Tsunami would co-test their food, but since Tsunami had booked himself for a day at the cat spa, Magellan magnamously shouldered his Royal Taste-Testing duties on his own!

He picked a flavor to sample (he tried to snooker me out of them all!) but he had to settle for the solo purple packet I hand-picked for him (Love Me Tender Chicken + Duck In Gravy Recipe). He immediately slurped up all of the yummy gravy, paused to make sure that Tsunami wasn’t on the horizon, ready to eat the rest of his meal, then proceeded to savor the rest of his meal!

What I like about this dish (besides the healthy ingredients) is the hydration factor. As far as I’m concerned, my boys can never be hydrated enough!


I also like the fact that every time I feed Tsunami and Magellan a pack, they thoroughly clean their plates. No more half-eaten cans to deal with. I can feed them both their own package and they will happily lap it up!

Magellan isn’t the cat I’d call on to help me clean my house (although he makes an entertaining and loyal companion to hang with during Spring Cleaning). But, if you have a fussy eater and you’re looking for a cat with a discriminating taste palate to help you pick your cat’s next meal, you can count on Magellan, and he gives this four paws up!

    Those kitties bellies are tied to all activity in the kitchen when they think there’s food in their future!

  4. Kitties are so sweet so we give them a pass when it comes to helping out. And what joy they bring us.

  5. Veronica Lee says:

    I would say they are more helpful around the house then my two teen boys! Or the Hubs when it comes to house chores! At least, they keep the mice away!

  6. Holly says:

    Weruva is the best cat food on the planet unless you make your own. My cats all love everything Weruva makes.

  16. Aww, I feel so left out by these food reviews, as we cant get these here. They do sound very nice and most definitely worth a try. Cleaning and through out trash!? Not around here, mine vanishes… either that or the gnomes have been skip dipping as we call it…
    Have a lovely week, and dont eat too much, or work to hard on the housework MOL

    I *just* learned about Chewy.com and Weruva brand. I’m looking for low phosphorous food for my kitty with a kidney condition and Weruva fits the bill. Fingers crossed kitty likes their stuff!

    I just love when the kitties hold down their plates, might get away.

  19. What a beautiful cat!

  20. Kitties Blue says:

    We are pretty much just as helpful as you two. Sawyer helped today by knocking a nice ceramic canister off the counter to the tile floor. It’s in the trash now. We’re not fond of anything that isn’t pate, but this sounds pretty good. Thanks for the review.

    My cats are awful when I try to clean anything!

  22. We met the Weruva people at BlogPaws, We love them, their attitude and their approach to great cat food!

  23. Looks like they did an excellent job as taste testers.

  24. You have some expurrt testers! Congratulations on winning Chewy’s monthly contest. ☺ Woo Hoo!

  25. I so enjoyed reading this post! Your cats are so sweet and they do get up some wonderful capers! I must admit, I remember that when we had cats they were no help round the house either! I’m glad they enjoyed their new food. It sounds excellent, hydration is so important for cats. Thank you so much for sharing and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Have a wonderful week!
