Farm Cat Friday - Sherpa the Farm Cat Meows to You About A Gourmet Diet and Has a Giveaway #HillsPet

Greetings everyone. I am so glad to be here on Farm Cat Friday.
I have some very important and tasty stuff to meow to you today.
We cats need to eat. Did you know that we like to graze just like those silly goats?
That's why it is good to feed us some wet food for breakfast and leave kibbles out for us to nibble upon during the day between treats and dinner.


That way big strong mancats like me can keep energy levels high for doing important things like jumping up high and scaring humans. I like to be UP and I need my food to help me get there.


The publicist fed us some delicious cat food from Hill's Science Diet and as you can see we Farm cats really enjoyed it. I even shared with Stinky.


Harry shared with Stinky! This much sharing has never been seen around the Farm. The publicist almost fainted dead away. She was amazed. No matter - we all loved the food.

But back to the important facts about feeding us cats. Hill's lets you feed your cats a complete diet of wet food, kibble and treats with all of the same nutritious ingredients so that our kitty stomachs don't get upset at change. Let me just meow right now that I am very much in favor of treats!

I know that I am always there in the morning to remind the publicist that it is time for our breakfast. I'm sure she appreciates the four of us sitting on her and purring to remind her that we are HUNGRY. If she does not respond right away we then give her a little whap or two - that always works. She gets up and cracks open those delicious cans of cat food for us cats. She also fills up our kibble bowls.


Once in a blue moon she might be late with dinner. I NEED my dinner. I will meow and she will get me fed and then she will try and make things up to me by trying to pet me and be friendly but I do not fall for this. I meow to her, "talk to the paw!" You blew it woman!


I go to my box. But then she breaks out the cat treats and then I find I can forgive her. For a little while anyway. But then she goes and takes pictures like this....


....and she is back on my list again. Seriously! Leave a cat some dignity! But it does show how well fed I am and how my furs are so thick and shiny. Raowr! Thank you Hills!


So remember everything I meowed to you today and feed your cats well AND give them treats! To help you do that I have a giveaway for you thanks to the very nice people from Hill's Science Diet. 20 lucky readers will win Gift Baskets from Hills


You read that correctly! There will be TWENTY WINNERS! Would you like to see the gift basket?
I'm sure you would! Here it is:


I wish I could enter - but I'm a very spoiled Farm cat. I already eat very well.
The giveaway is open to the US but if any of you are from anywhere else you can direct it to a shelter or friend here.

To enter just go on the Rafflecopter. If you have any problems with it just let the publicist know and she will put your information in for you.  I thank you for reading my post today. I was very happy to meow at you today.

    1. Well, perhaps when you stop all of that wandering around. You know you can wander with a trailer. The publicist and male person did this. Stinky the Farm cat got to visit many states that way. She almost jumped on a barge that was floating down the Mississippi river!

  8. My female Creedence likes to wedge her body between my back and my office chair. She jumps up on the back of the chair and squeezes down between my back and the chair until she in snug as a bug. She will stay like that for hours. When she isn't on my back she is sleeping on my head. Yup that's right when I go to bed for some strange reason she thinks she needs to sleep on my head. The only thing she likes to do more than sleep is probably eat. She I'm sure would love a Hill Science Diet Gift Basket :)

    1. We cats can be silly. Stinky the Farm cat sleeps RIGHT NEXT to the publicist at her hip. I sleep on the male person's feet. Harry sleeps on the publicist's feet and Pumpkin sleeps on her head. She says we keep her warm. What the male person says cannot be repeated in polite company.

    1. Fred the former Farm cat used to love to play fetch too! The publicist misses Fred. I never met him - he is at the Bridge. Stinky and Reba would get along VERY well.

  13. Pawsome giveaway. The only thing that would make it better would be if it had that fountain that some of the other giveaways that I didn't win had. If I win this, I'm gonna donate it to the A Call 4 Paws' cats cos I really don't like the grain-free Hills.

  20. We have two cats: One is a frail little old lady whose favorite thing to do is sleep, and the other is a large playful girl whose favorite toy is a long strand of colored twine she carries all around the house. However, eating is a favorite activity for both of them.

  23. It depends on which kitty. Daisy is rather infamous in our neighborhood. She spent her younger years chasing anything that came into her yard away, this included the neighbors dog and the other neighbors bulls. In her spare time when things learned it was better not to come into Daisy's yard so would go to the neighbors house and chase his sheep. She has since retired to the recliner in the living room but will still chase her other house mates, especially if they try to sit on HER recliner.

  38. Crystal's favorite pastime is napping, in "loaf" position on a sleeping human. Willow's favorite pastime is glaring at humans because he can see the bottom of his bowl. Most of the time, it's because he ate the food from the middle of the bowl.

  43. When my cat, Isabelle, isn't napping, she loves to scare the doves on the patio. She crouches just beneath the window and when she thinks they aren't paying attention, she pops up and hits the glass. Of course, they fly off. Mission accomplished. :-)

  49. A stray black kitteh recently adopted my family. Aside from decimating our usual summer mouse population, she really seems to enjoy chasing the couple of squirrels that have been hanging around. We have been purchasing kibble and feeding her daily. She's now in the routine of lurking in the bushes around 6:30 a.m. and dashes toward the bowl before we're even made it back through the front door.
