The name’s Pippa. Here’s the deal – we all know that dogs do such a good job of being at their owner’s beck and call. They’re good at that. Us cats, we need to make them at our beck and call. And me? I happened to be especially good at doing just so. You see, we have a certain way of carrying ourselves (and laying ourselves) that does a perfect job of conveying exactly what we want. Take food, for example. Ever since I’ve started eating Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blends, I just can’t miss a mealtime. I’ve always loved Purina® Pro Plan® food, but now with this deliciousness? Talk about the best summer ever. Why would I inflict myself to the kind of torture that would involve missing this?
When I’m hungry, I have a few certain tricks up my fur that Mom and Dad usually catch onto. At times, I have to be a bit more persistent than usual but I’m very good at doing that.
Step 1: Roll over and over at their feet. We often leave the rolling over for dogs, but I’ve found it very effective to get want I want. This works great to get them to pick me up too, but by meowing at the same time, they start to catch onto my neediness.
Step 2: In the mornings, during my peak hunger time, I like to threaten Mom’s coffee. Whether it’s making sure I spruce it up with some of my fur, or actually deciding to go to extremes and knock it over, it’s bound to get results. I should warn you, though, this doesn’t always get the results I desire. I tend to get them more when I just continue my meowing right beside it.
Step 3: If the coffee doesn’t work, the clothes will. If I lay on Mom’s outfit for the day, she can’t get ready until I get what I need. Bonus points for persisting on the meowing. I’m telling you, meowing is key. And the staredown. They always fall for the guilty staredown.
Step 4: During the day, a great way to direct their attention to my needs is to sit on their laptop. This one doubles as a personal belly warmer, so you get to warm your belly right before filling it! It can be a little bumpy, though, and often makes noises at me while I lay. Sometimes, I prefer to just lay on papers she needs instead. She picks me up to get the paper, I have her attention, I lead her to my food. It’s that easy, folks.
Step 5: If you just can’t seem to master the meow-stare-annoy routine, then, while maintaining a more “wailing” variety of meows, direct your human to the resting place of your food. Show them that you need Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blend‘s delicious real fish and chicken tastes and textures. Beyond you, your skin, your fur, and even your digestion need it!
Step 6: Sometimes, our humans just don’t get it. And you need your time to savor your food. Desperate times call for desperate measures. When food’s this good, you do what it takes to get to it. So, fellow felines, if you absolutely must, bite into the bag. You’ll get your food, your humans will get mad, but at least they will learn! I’m telling you, it’s worth it.
Butttttt hopefully your humans are a bit more attentive. If you follow my steps, they’ll be pulling out the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blend in no time.
Look at it friends. So tasty. Little bits of kibble mixed with softer shredded pieces. It’s the best of both worlds inside one meal! Mom could tell I was leaning toward the Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blends: Salmon and Rice so she let me dig into it first. Again, it’s really not that hard to tell them what you want. All this yummy protein! Happy Cat, Happy Life. That’s how it goes, right?
Step 7. Wait, there’s a step 7? After you’ve had your delicious savory meal of Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blends? Yes, some would say this is the most important step. You savored your meal, right? You want to keep savoring that time? You’ve got to show your appreciation. Give a good little cuddle here and there. Throw out a couple of purrs, lean into her hand, she’ll know you’re thankful. I like being held like a baby, so I curl into my human’s arms upside down for our snuggle session. That might just be the best part of summer, these extra cuddle times after each scrumptious meal with Mom and Dad.
Lucky for you, Mom says that Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Shredded Blends were super easy to find in the store! Apparently I’m not the only cat that’s a huge fan of them; this type was definitely well-loved. The PetSmart in Greensboro on Lawndale even had this delicious brand at more than one location, so Mom was able to get a big enough bag to satisfy my cravings. Even luckier, she has a sale for you! Spend $15 on any Purina® Pro Plan® Product from 5/31-7/5 and save $10 on your next purchase of any 10.5 lbs or larger bag of Purina® Pro Plan® Dry Cat or Dog Food or Litter by 7/31! Yes, we’ll even include the dogs on this one;)
