As we have mentioned here and there on the blog over the past months, there have been quite a few changes in our lives. As a result of these changes we spent less time blogging and deal shopping, although we still managed to drop off a few donations at Meowness.
So, we thought it was about time to write a bit about how what we are doing and how we have been.
The human sold our house a few months ago and a little later we moved into an RV full time with plans to travel the US with our human.
Before moving in, the RV was catified for us in various ways. We even received our own custom cabinet that holds the litter box, a drawer for supplies, a scratching post and a cat bed on top, for perfect cat TV watching!
We were a bit skeptical at first about this whole “house that moves” thing. But the human did what she could to make it work. We lived in the house for quite a while until it started moving and even then it only moved for very short periods of time at a time, so we could get used to the experience.
At the beginning, the human also used a Feliway diffuser in the front area as well as both Feliway spray and Sentry Calming Spray for Cats on the bedding and around the RV each time before the motor was started. On top of that Linus is usually wearing a SENTRY Calming Collar for Cats while the house is in motion. Yep, the human wanted to make the transition as smooth as possible for us. We personally think she totally underestimated us and may have gone a bit overboard at first. We are a bunch of super cool chill kitties and she should have known better. Now she just uses the calming collar and the Feliway spray for longer rides. In any case, we appreciate the thought!
We luckily got used to the whole riding in an RV experience pretty quickly. When we hear the motor being started (we usually are warned by the calming collar coming out), we head right to the bed in the back of the RV and hide under the blankets. Emily sometimes prefers to ride on the human’s lap rather than hanging out with Linus under the blankets!
As soon as the RV stops, we come out and demand treats for our bravery and then hang out and chill, as if nothing ever happened. So far things have been pretty good. At the beginning we usually received calming treats as well, but now we’re good with our regular favorite treats, or even better: chicken lunchmeat!
The changes in the CAT TV channels are amazing! And we truly enjoy all the new smells and experiences. The human leaves the screen door open for us whenever possible, so we can take in the sights, sounds and smells. We don’t get to go out, but the humans brought along a kittie play pen for us just in case they decide to let us hang out outside in the future.
Being on the road means, we are less connected and that makes it harder to keep up with deals. We still have been posting some and will continue to do so, while travelling. We also plan to be back in Phoenix over Thanksgiving and do some deal shopping for our buddies at Meowness at that time.
Until then, we are planning to share some of our adventures on the road and hope some of you’ll be interested in those as well. We are also looking for ways to support Meowness whilst on the road, so if you have any ideas, please let us know!

This just popped up in our FB newsfeed:
Purina is offering a free sample of Tender Selects Blend dry cat food.
They ask for a mailing address to send it to. Often times their samples also have coupons.
Here’s the fine printed legal speak:
Offer valid thru 12/31/16, or good while supplies last. Good only in the USA, APOs, FPOs. LIMIT ONE REQUEST PER HOUSEHOLD. P.O. Box address not accepted. Void where taxed, prohibited or otherwise restricted. Sale, purchase, assignment or other transfer prohibited. Group requests void. Please allow 6-8 weeks for shipment. Submissions that in Nestlé Purina PetCare Company’s sole discretion do not comply with terms and conditions of offer, including fraudulent submissions, are invalid. Fraudulent submission could result in prosecution under Federal mail and/or computer fraud statutes. Offer may not be published elsewhere without written permission from Nestlé Purina PetCare Company, Checkerboard Square, St. Louis, MO 63164.
Just a reminder, if you were planning on using that $15/75 at Petco, today is your last chance to do so. Coupon expires 10/8!
We sent the human to Petco a few days ago and she confirms that you can also find the coupon in the ad in store.
However she did not find enough deals for us to put together a scenario. We even had a reward and ended up not usin gthe $15/75 ourselves.
But if you are planning on getting a bigger item, or have a bunch of rewards, this may be a good coupon to have.
In any case, make sure you head over to the store before they close today!
The human really does not like or plan to go shopping on Black Friday. There is only ONE exception to that:
Petsmart usually has 35lbs of Tidy Cats litter for 7.99 and that’s just a killer deal in itself, but if you have coupons on top of that, it’s a deal that can’t be beat.
We love getting cat litter for our buddies at Meowness as they go through this stuff faster than our human can chow down a chocolate bar and she’s pretty quick when it comes to chocolate.
So although the human would rather be chilling in her PJs working on leftovers on black Friday, we usually purr up enough encouragement for her to lift her behind and move it to Petsmart.
Our current printables and insert coupons expire later this month, so hopefully we’ll have some new ones to use by the time Black Friday rolls around.
We know of $2/1 and $3/1 peelies out there and even $5/1 . So if you are lucky to have some of these, hold onto them until black Friday.
We’ll remind you of the deal again, once BF gets closer and or when or if we find some printables or insert coupon you can use!!
YAY, we are so excited that Petsmart will have this deal again this year!!
Whew, is it that time of the month again??? September is almost over and we all know what that means!
Coupons will likely reset after the last of the month!
So if there are any pet coupons out there, that you have been meaning to print, now is the time!
We especially recommend grabbing the Purina Pro Plan coupons, if you have not printed them yet!
Here’s a list to help you, just click on the coupon to print:
We recently had the human buy cat litter at Safeway and she unexpectedly received a $3 coupon for pet supplies from the Catalina machine, so we sent her back to buy some more with the catalina. But we were not sure if that was a targeted deal or not and what triggered it, so we did not think much of it.
Yesterday the human flipped through the current Safeway Book of Savings, valid Sept 21- Oct 25 and came across the above ad.
The ad says save $5 off your next pet product purchase when you spend $25 on pet products or
save $3 off your next pet product purchase when you spend between $15 and $24.99 on pet products.
So it seems this promotion is running through Oct 25th, as that is the last day the book is valid.
Hopefully we’ll get another kitty litter deal for $5 Friday before the promotion runs out!
We’ll for sure keep an eye out for deals at SW!
