If you don’t already know his story, it is pretty amazing. On a rainy day in August, Alice was driving on the highway when she made eye contact with a small animal on the side of the road. Her first thought was it was a squirrel, but she pulled over and looked in her rearview mirror. It wasn’t a squirrel at all, but rather a small kitten.
Alice walked back to the spot where she saw him, and there he was, all alone in the weeds and in rough shape. She picked him up and since there were no houses around, put him in the car. Clayton started purring when Alice picked him up and hasn’t stopped. Alice took the kitten to the emergency vet for an exam. The kitten had an eye infection, ear mites, and some serious mobility issues.
I suggested some great rescues for Alice to contact, but I knew it wasn’t going to happen. Alice decided to take the kitten home and try to give him some TLC and good food to help him gain some strength. It took Alice about a week to realize that Clayton was staying with her indefinitely.
It didn’t take long for Clayton to establish himself as a member of the pack with Franny and Darla.
Darla had never been around cats, so I wasn’t sure if she’d like Clayton.
If only our politicians could be more like Clayton and Darla!
Along with all the love he’s been getting from Darla and Franny, Clayton absolutely loves to snuggle with Alice! Whenever she comes home, he starts purring and wants to be held or fed.
Although Alice is a vegan, she knows that cats are obligate carnivores so she decided to let Clayton try NomNomNow, freshly cooked cat food delivered!
My dogs love NomNomNow, so I was curious to see their cat food. Just like with the dog food, they use fresh ingredients prepared in the NomNomNow restaurant-quality kitchen. The food is prepared in small batches and delivered right to the door. The recyclable packing keeps the food cold, but not frozen! There are two recipes for cats: Chicken Chow Meow and Flavorful Fish Feast. Both are high in protein and have a naturally high water content, which may help prevent urinary tract infections. Their cat food also contains Taurine. Each meal is individually packaged which makes it super easy to serve.
Waiting for NomNomNow makes Clayton a little hangry!
NomNomNow now offers variety boxes so you can rotate your pets’ meals between different proteins. This option is available for dogs as well as cats.
Surprisingly, NomNomNow cat food is less expensive than some brands of canned cat food. Clayton’s fur is becoming softer and shinier, but the most amazing thing is how mobile he has become.
With Alice’s TLC (including NomNomNow) Clayton is thriving!
I can’t say for sure that the NomNomNow food is responsible for that, but seeing how my dogs’ health improved when we made the switch, I think it is helping Clayton too.
Now that he has been with Alice for eight weeks, he’s much stronger and able to jump up on the bed. The vet thinks that he might even have a good eye underneath the gray membrane. We’ll find out in November, as the vet will be able to take a better look at it when he goes in for neutering.
You’ll be seeing a lot more of Clayton on the blog in the months to come!
