IAMS Cat Food and Treats

This probably won’t come as any surprise to you: we consider our pets to be members of our family.  They are a bit furrier than us, they drool a bit more than us, but we love them a lot despite all of that!

We have two cats, both rescued from a local shelter, both name after royalty upon adoption by a then 2 year old Lily.  Yes, Belle and Cinderella have a pretty great life, with everyone doting on them with treats and cuddle time!

We are getting together soon for dinner with friends who recently adopted their own furbaby kitty.  While Landon and I were at Walmart over the weekend, I picked up some cat-themed gifts to turn into a fun “welcome new cat” present that we’ll take with us to dinner.

Our cats do great with IAMS™ food and treats, so these are familiar products and stood out among the many cat food aisle products.  We like that IAMS™ offers functional food and treats that target specific dietary needs (Hairball Care, Digestive Health, and Oral Care).  We found a bag of food (IAMS™ Proactive Healthy Adult Dry Cat Food w/ Chicken) and a bag of treats (Hairball Care (Mega Bag Chicken or Salmon) in the same aisle.

We added an adorable cat food bowl to the cart and also purchased a clear lidded storage tote to complete the gift.  The tote serves a dual purpose – it provides a gift box for our presents and then can serve as a cat food storage box in the pantry.  We added a ribbon for the final touch!

New Cat Pet Food Kit Gift

If their new kitty likes IAMS™ food as much as our cats do, we’ll have a very winning gift on our hands!  We picked up 2 bags of food – one to gift and one to replenish our own cats’ supply.  Belle was incredibly pleased when we cracked open the new bag just for her.

If their family loves their new cat as much as our cats are loved, they’re in for years and years of this kind of cuteness:
