Stop the Presses! Natural Balance Debuts at PetSmart #PetSmartStory

This post is sponsored by PetSmart, and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the launch of Natural Balance products at PetSmart, but Stunning Keisha only shares information I feel is relevant to my readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

When it first came over the wire that Natural Balance® Pet Food was now available in PetSmart®The CK Gazette & World News dispatched award-winning investigative reporter Cathy Keisha to cover all the action. She is joined by cub reporter Plush CK. Here is the report they filed.

Dateline: August 8, World Cat Day and I’m joined outside an undisclosed PetSmart location about 10 miles from NYC, the capital of the world, with shopper TW. (You can find your nearest PetSmart by clicking on this easy link.) TW is celebrating the day at PetSmart because she heard the news that PetSmart now carries Natural Balance® pet food. Woohoo!

This reporter is one happy cat. Long ago and far away, she’d eaten some of their noms and liked them but you know how TW is about ordering online and paying shipping. It ain’t happening. Now we can just hop over to PetSmart and TW can buy me some toys and litter along with my Natural Balance favorites.

Sure enough, there were big banners outside (and inside) advertising the arrival of Plush CK and myself Natural Balance. Plush CK was getting excited. She’d covered Blogpaws for this paper but had never been inside a real pet store. The rumors, however, are a hunnert percent false about Plush CK having shall we say a little accident in the car because she was so excited.

How excited were our shoppers to see the Natural Balance display? Anyone remember the old TV show Supermarket Sweep? TW looked like she was a contestant as she swept up everything Natural Balance in her path. I couldn’t believe she could move so fast! Both her and Plush CK were like kids inside a candy store. Plush CK kept hopping out of the cart to pick what she knew I’d like.

First they plucked some bags of kibble from the big Natural Balance display which wasn’t so big if you glanced across the aisle at the canine display. ¡Ay caramba! Looks like Plush CK plucked at least one can. Hope she paid for that. That cat has mighty sticky paws!

Then they checked out the complete line of Natural Balance. What to choose?? Plush CK was pitching cans into the cart while TW carefully read labels. The Wild Pursuit dry cat food features high protein, grain-free nutrition with minimally processed freeze dried raw pieces mixed it. TW was innerested to see if I’d eat those freeze-dried pieces so she picked up both the Chicken, Turkey Meal & Quail and the Trout, Salmon Meal & Tuna formulas. (I ate around them.) She also picked up a bag of the grain-free Limited Ingredient Green Pea and Salmon. Limited ingredients is good especially if your cat has allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients.

TW did a happy dance right in the store that both the Platefulls and the Delectable Delights wet foods don’t contain carrageenan, an ingredient that’s been known to promote inflammation in cats like myself with sensitive tummies. She made sure those were in the shopping cart. She likes to feed me food with pumpkin and several of the Platefulls feature it.

All too soon, they had to check out. Guess what? All the Natural Balance was on sale! It was all in our budget. Plush CK didn’t scan too well but we got to keep her anyway.

  2. I wish our PetSmart was a little closer - it's a bit of a trek so we don't go as often.

  3. What a fun post! We love how convenient PetSmart is to us. The head peep visits the one near work more often than the one near home!

  5. We didn't get to go to PetSmart when the mom bought our Natural Balance. But at least we got to eat it! It's yummy. PetSmart is really close to our house so we're glad Natural Balance is there now.

  7. It looks like Plush CK chose a good selection for you. We don't have Petsmart in the UK, and Natural Balance isn't available here either which is a pity.

  8. The Farm cats love Natural Balance. I don't dare take them to PetSmart. Harry would try and eat some of the inventory if you know what I mean.

  16. OMC - I totally remember Supermarket Sweep and that was the best game show ever! Your shopping trip looks like it was an exciting one. And it looks like you made out with all the best loot a cat could ask for.
