Journey Through America #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties! About a month ago, I set out to explore beyond my four walls. I wanted to visit all parts of this great country of ours from California to the New York islands to see how cats in every state think, eat and play. With my worried peeps blessings, I went off with my backpack of noms and treats. I found some beautiful scenery and learned that cats are the same in every town and city I visited. Sure, we have different tastes in food but we all need the same things—shelter, food, playful stimulation and lots of attention. Of course, I took lots of photos of my Journey Through America.

Why did I set out on this American Journey? As part of the #ChewInfluencer program, they sent me a case of 24 cans of a new—to me, at least—brand of cat food called American Journey. I was inspired and a wee bit hungry when it arrived in our condo.

I roamed and rambled the ribbon of highway. I saw above me a golden skyline. … I journeyed from the Red Wood forests to the Gulf Stream waters. HOLD IT! Wrong song. Let's regroup and start again.

The first stop on my road trip was one of TW's favorite places in the world—the Statue of Liberty. We live so close but she's never been. Since she was a little tyke, she's always loved Lady Liberty. TW believes in what she stands for and hopes she'll stand tall and proud forever. I had to visit to say I got there before she did. There may have been some treat crumbs left up in the crown. I must say that place needs to get a litter box.

I went to Mount Rushmore where I wondered why there were no cats carved in the mountain. There are some pretty impressive presidents there. I may have left my mark and my tag there but don't quote me on this if anyone axs.

I took along an American Journey Poultry & Seafood in Gravy Variety Pack of grain-free canned cat food to nosh on and one to feed the homeless and hungry cats I encountered on my journey. These guys got to sample the chicken and tuna, turkey and salmon and chicken and salmon recipes. After they ate and enjoyed every crumb, I explained to them how important it was to keep their population down by being spayed and neutered. They say hello from the heartlands.

Chewy told me each recipe starts with real meat that cats instinctively crave, covered in a delicious, savory gravy. and combines premium poultry and seafood formulas for the rich flavor kitties love and the nourishing nutrients they need to thrive. The high-quality animal proteins help support lean muscles. Taurine is added for healthy eyes and a healthy heart. Each can contains wholesome ingredients like cranberries and blueberries, natural omega-3 and 6 fatty acids for skin and coat health and added vitamins and minerals with no corn, wheat, soy, poultry by-product meal and artificial colors, flavors and preservatives so you can be sure your cat is getting the nutrition she deserves.

Whoa! That was a mouthful.

I give the gravy three and a half paws up. It lost half a paw cos there wasn't enough of it. I'd seen pics others posted where it looked like a lot more gravy. Our's was kind of dry. The minced pieces get one paw but you don't have to take my word for it. Chewy is giving you a chance to make up your own mind. For a limited time, get 50% off your first case of American Journey.

Fur Everywhere said...

It sounds delicious, CK! I'll have to see if they make any non-fish formulas for Carmine and Lita to try. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the food!

Pumpkin here. I still have to write my review. Candy and EK like it so they're eating it all. Mom hasn't seen me eat it yet.

Your reviews are always so creative. I wish I was as good a writer as you are.

Tamago said...

This is new to me, too. Never heard of this brand before. I love your presentation with your journey :-) I think there should be cats carved in the mountain! Great review!

Brian said...

Yes, more gravy is always important CK and we enjoyed your review!

The Florida Furkids said...

We enjoyed that food too. We liked the combo of meat to gravy but we share so it always works out!

ps - Mom can't believe your Mom has never been to the Statue of Liberty. She went there eleventy billion times with class trips when she was a little girl (back in the dinosaur ages)

The Swiss Cats said...

That sounds yummy ! Purrs

The Island Cats said...

That was a fun review, CK!

We love your Chewy posts so much, CK! I had a feeling this wouldn't have enough gravy for Mudpie. Sounds like I was right.!

Hmmm...I guess I won't get any until Chewy comes to Canada and does a sea to sea to sea promotion!
But yours looks great. And I don't have to worry about the gravy, Mom always puts warm water in my canned food. She says it is something about me getting enough liquid

The Indulged Furries said...

Mmmm, gravy. Too bad I can't eat those ingredients. This food appears to be produced exclusively for - which is ok if you want your food shipped, but we've had problems with that so we buy locally whenever possible. Since PetSmart bought Chewy, maybe the food will also be in PetSmart stores.

The Menagerie Mom said...

It's always a gamble whether the kitties around here will like a food, but we're thinking we're going to have to give this kind a try, CK.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We loved this food! I'm blown away by how much time you must've spent on this post ... it's incredible! Another one to add to the list for next year's nominations ...

Oh we'd love to try this, but sadly Chewy isn't available in the UK - BOO HOO!!!

It looked delicious and your slide show was EPIC!

Big hugs

There's definitely gravy fans in this house, so they might like that food!

Awesome review CK, you are very creative. I love The Statue of Liberty, I only went once, but I collect statues of her. How sweet of you to share the food. XO
