Celebrating Fall With My Cat

Joe and I are expecting our little one in just 9 short weeks, so these days we’re working on all the final preparations including her nursery.

As excited as we are about it, we’re a little bit worried about how Graham is going to feel about sharing the house with a baby, given that he’s had all of our attention for what seems like forever.

It may take our kitty some time to adjust to the new member of our family, so we want to make sure that he knows how much we love him before the baby arrives. FYI – our baby girl is already a crazy cat lady and she’s not even here yet!

To show Graham that we still love him, and to celebrate our favorite season, we decided to give his kitty corner a bit of a fall makeover.



We bought him a new bowl, a new treat jar, and some fun fall toys to play with.


Plus, we decided to change up his food routine a little and introduced him to a new variety of Purina® Muse®.


Now let’s be very clear here, Graham is legit like my best friend, and he’s definitely a true part of our  family, so when I find delicious nutritional food that he actually loves, it’s like I hit the jackpot!

Muse-By-Purina-Wet-FoodHe’s honestly such a picky eater and I knew there was a chance he wouldn’t like it, but boy was I wrong. I left him alone for 5 minutes and he had already punctured holes in the bag because he couldn’t wait to try it. Such an impatient kitty!



I love that these Purina Muse cat food selections are made with natural ingredients because I always want to make sure Graham’s eating as healthy as possible. When he actually enjoys the food he’s eating, it makes life so much easier, and he then has the energy to play with us!


(How cute is this little pumpkin toy I picked up at Petco for him? I couldn’t resist – it’s his new buddy.)


Anyway, Purina Muse is so confident that your cat will love their products that they offer a Clean Plate™ Guarantee. You can give it a try and if your cat doesn’t like it, you can take it back to the store and they’ll refund your money.


Zero risk, all the reward!


I mean, Graham has never tried a dry food that wasn’t chicken-based, but dude, he attacked this as if I hadn’t fed him in days lol. I couldn’t even get him to look up for a second to take his picture! The Sailing With Salmon Dry Food is a natural salmon, egg, and yogurt recipe, and all I know is that it looks like it’s his new favorite.


Just like the seasons, things are definitely changing here in the Buell household. But I’m happy to know that there are still even the simplest ways to show Graham how much we love him, and I’m glad that Petco makes it so easy to do that. I honestly had so much fun shopping for him the other day, and I hope he appreciates his mini kitty corner fall makeover!


And if you’re thinking about giving these Purina Muse products a try, look out for a new range of Masterpieces Dry Formulas coming in February of 2018!

FYI, our friend the Budget Savvy Diva will be hosting a special special Facebook LIVE sampling event on 10/18 at 9pmEST showcasing these Purina Muse products! Be sure to tune in for free samples and a whole lot of fun!

    That is one loved kitty cat! As a cat lover myself and the mother of five I expect your new little one will quickly find she’s already got a best friend.

    I love the love you have for your cat. It reminds me of me and my dog. I’m actually expecting too and I’ve been wondering how my dog’s gonna take it when the baby gets here. She’s been my only baby for the past 7 years!
