2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Tortie Lovers

For the past two years I've created gift guides for tortie lovers which have ended up being some of our most viewed posts ever! Seems there are lots of tortie fanatics out there like me upset by the lack of our favorite cats on wearables, jewelry and home decor.

Since I'm always on the hunt for anything tortie-related I decided to make a holiday gift guide exclusively for tortie lovers an annual tradition to help make your shopping a little easier. I hope you find something that will make that special tortie-holic in your life purr (or to treat yourself with!)



Do you have any tortie lovers on your shopping list this year?

Championship #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

We're recycling a preciously seen selfie this week, but it's in honor of a very special day at our house!

It's NASCAR's Championship Sunday and once again our guy Kevin Harvick is one of only 4 drivers eligible to win the big trophy. In 2014 he won it (before I moved in), in 2015 he finished 2nd, and in 2017 he ended up 3rd. He's had the most unbelievable season of his career, winning 8 races and the non-points All-Star Race, so winning the Championship would be the icing on the cake.

Mommy is super excited but so nervous she can hardly stand it. Me, I'll be hiding out until the race is over. Whichever way it goes I have a feeling things will get very, very loud. Send help. And cross all your fingers and paws that the 4 car wins the Cup!


We're joining our friends at The Cat on My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop!

Ice Tortie #CaturdayArt

Meows from Mudpie!

Winter has come early to my little neck of the woods...we got 6" of snow yesterday! I always enjoy using winter effects on my Caturday Art projects, so this premature dose of the white stuff inspired me to get a little frosty...

And now our weekly answers (all answered by Mommy this week) for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

1. I can't wait to have stuffing on Thanksgiving. It's my favorite part of the meal.

2. I am thankful for my family, both of the 2-legged and 4-legged variety.

3. When it comes to pie, Mudpie, what else??? (Pecan is my favorite non-furry pie though.)

4. A feast is not a feast without someone you love to share it with.

Savoring the Pro Plan Experience #ChewyInfluencer

Meows from Mudpie!

It's been a couple months since I've done a review for Chewy.com - something about Mommy being too busy to help me - but when I got our email this month I knew this was a review I could take the reins on all by myself without any assistance from her. (Well, except for the whole typing and editing photos thing...)


You all remember how much of a Pro Plan girl I am, right? Awhile back they introduced a new line of kibble mixed with pieces of shredded meat. I received a sample bag of the chicken flavor and didn't care for it, but now they've added turkey to the lineup, which is my favorite Pro Plan kibble flavor, so I was very excited to give it a try.

Before I give my verdict, here are the key benefits according to Chewy.com:

Key Benefits
  • Protein-rich formula features real turkey as the very first ingredient to help maintain lean muscles and an ideal body condition.
  • Unique combination of crunchy kibble and tender, shredded bits creates taste and texture variety that helps prevent food boredom.
  • Formulated for the indoor cat with natural fiber to help prevent hairballs and natural prebiotic fiber from chicory root to support healthy digestion.
  • Fortified with a comprehensive array of essential vitamins and minerals for complete and balanced nutrition that performs.
  • Proudly produced in the USA in a Purina-owned facility using high-quality ingredients for quality and safety.

Drum roll please...I pawsitively love this food! Mommy was skeptical that I would like it even though it's now available in my favorite flavor since I don't like anything freeze-dried, but I've gobbled it down every day since it arrived. Since I have a bit of a sensitive tummy we love the addition of prebiotic fiber, and we credit my shiny furs and muscular bod to my Pro Plan diet too!

The Purina Pro Plan Savor Shredded Blend Indoor Turkey & Rice Formula Dry Cat Food is currently on sale at Chewy for only $8.99 for a 3 pound bag! Chewy offers FREE 1-2 day shipping for orders over $49, and with over 500 brands in stock they have something sure to make every cat or dog happy. Tell them Mudpie sent you!

Veterans Day Weekend #MewsicMovesMe


It's a freebie week for the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop so we decided to create a short Veterans Day playlist...




You're not imagining things, there are no Conway songs on my list! That's only because I'm saving the best for last. 

Even though it's not Veterans Day related, I have to mention his classic It's Only Make Believe, which was the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart 60 years ago this week, on November 10, 1958. It was a monster record, becoming a hit in 22 different countries and selling over 8 million copies. This is a song I could listen to on "repeat" for hours on end...



Do any of our choices catch your ear?
