I found a package on my porch today from My Blog Spark! 

I opened it to find some goodies for His Royal Highness, Jack. 

My Blog Spark was gracious enough to send me a bag of 9 Lives cat food for him to try out, a cute little food scooper, a few toys, picture frame magnets, and two coupons!  Keep reading for a giveaway!! :o)

9Lives® wants pet parents to know they can feed their cats the food they love while providing them the nutrition they need with the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, which is sure to help keep your cat –and your budget – happy.
Did you know, a survey of feline pet parents across the country commissioned by 9Lives found that 94 percent of cat owners are confident they feed their felines the most nutritious meals possible. However, nearly half (48 percent) admit they’ve fed their cats table scraps – which do not provide the essential nutrients cats need – an average seven times per month. Additionally, only 30 percent know that giving your cat milk may not be a healthy practice due to the common incidence of lactose intolerance in adult cats.1  I don't give our cat milk, but I must admit that I did not know that! 

Additional findings include:
  • 23% of American pet parents think it’s beneficial to keep their cats on a purely vegetarian diet, while actually it may be harmful.2
  • There are a number of foods that feline parents assume are healthy for cats, but are actually not advantageous to their health including root vegetables (73%), green tomatoes (54%), and raw potatoes (50%)3

In an effort to educate pet parents about the common misperceptions of proper feline nutrition, 9Lives is committed to raising awareness to this issue by providing advanced nutrition for all cats. With the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, feline parents everywhere can rest assured knowing their cats are getting the essential nutrients they need to help promote healthy skin and coat, strong muscle growth and a healthy immune system among other benefits.

Check out for more feline nutritional information, and I recommend signing up for their newsletter to recieve information on promotions and coupons!

Would you like a chance to win a prize pack for your feline friend? 

Leave a comment and let me know your cat's name! :o) 

I will leave this giveaway open until Friday at 8pm.  Any comments after that will not count.  Make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you and get your information so My Blog Spark can send you your prize pack.

Good luck!
