Hey yall! Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a member of the family that you may or may not know about. No, it’s not another baby (praise!!) Its our sweet cat Corey. I’ve had her since I was a single, working young adult, for about 10 years. Now she’s seen me through two cities, three homes, two kiddos and is the sweetest cat you’ll ever meet. She’s been on a bit of a “New Years” challenge recently and I can’t wait to see all her improvements from making this one impactful change! Here’s how to take your pet from good to great!

First of all, I officially have two toddlers now! My one year old started walking and she hasn’t stopped since. Both of my kids keep Corey on her toes and moving. She really does love them (and all the attention they give her) but she also wants her space. What cat doesn’t? When the kids are a bit “extra”, she runs as far away as possible to hide (much to my children’s disappointment). So she’s definitely checking her “fitness” goals off. No more lazy cat naps while those two are running around!

But most importantly, she’s seen an upgrade at meal time. I’ve switched her food over to Purina ONE® Sensitive. I chose Purina ONE® Sensitive for a couple reasons. One, because she’s new to the Purina ONE® brand as a whole and I wanted to ease her into it. I also chose Purina ONE® Sensitive for her digestion. Sometimes she throws up (yuck!) and I’m personally hoping that with the “sensitive” formula it will help her food go down a little better.

Why did I switch her food in the first place? I thought what she was eating was fine, but if I want our sweet furry friend to stay around as long as possible, maybe I should take her nutrition a little more seriously. Maybe I could give her food with more targeted nutrition value, to a specialty crafted formula where every ingredient has a purpose. Take her from just “good” to GREAT!

He loves to help feed the kitty. It’s one of his favorite things to do and is a great age-appropriate responsibility :)

So, now she’s taking the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge. There are several visible healthy changes (like strong teeth, vibrant energy, sparkling eyes and a radiant coat) within this challenge that I am excited to be able to see in her. Just from switching her cat food! This  Purina ONE® challenge is for both dogs and cats, but my results will obviously be for cats. :) Here are some of the milestones I’ve seen and I’ll be on the look out for:

Day 1: More excitement around mealtime!

My cat is always pretty excited around mealtime, but I have noticed an extra pep in her step, since she’s been able to switch to a full bowl of Purina ONE® dry cat food. And I’m sure that’s all thanks to the great taste and real meat as the #1 ingredient*.

Day 7+: Vibrant energy!

Now I have definitely noticed a change in my cat’s energy since taking the Purina ONE® 28-day challenge. She is putting up with the kid’s shenanigans a lot longer than she normally would! She seems genuinely happier and wants to cuddle more too. The purposeful nutrition in each bag of Purina ONE® helps to support healthy energy in cats. This could be because of the high-quality, complete & balanced nutrition of Purina ONE, made with 0% fillers and 100% nutrition.

Day 14+: High digestibility!

I'm excited to see this milestone (we’re not quite there yet)! I wonder how many nutrients she’s actually getting when she sometimes spits up her food. She has been able to keep more of Purina ONE down and since I know every piece is full of quality ingredients that count, she’s in good hands. Good thing Purina ONE dry formulas are highly digestible and promote high nutrient absorption so more nutrition can go to work inside our sweet furry friends!

 

Day 21+: Sparkling eyes, healthy skin, and radiant coat!

Around the end of the third week, I’ll be looking for signs of clear, alert eyes and a healthy skin and coat, which is supported by the omega-6 fatty acid, vitamins & minerals provided by Purina ONE. She already has a very pretty coat, but to see it improve? That would be amazing!

Day 24+: Strong immune system!

At this point, my cat's immune system will be supported by a unique antioxidant blend of vitamins E & A and minerals zinc & selenium. Hopefully I will be able to see some positive changes in her whole body health. But I’ll know that the high-quality nutrition of Purina ONE will be supporting her immune system.

 

Day 28+: Strong teeth, healthy gums, heart, and joints!

Purina ONE formulas have crunchy kibble and calcium to help support strong, healthy teeth and gums in cats. High quality sources of protein, including real meat as the #1 ingredient* helps support all of my cat's muscles, including a healthy heart.
