The Power of Purr

Some cats are fluffy little butterballs and others are sleek and sinuous, independent and loving, playful and sedate,  cats have a long history of domestication and their friendship is endearing.  Best of all,  scientific studies have shown  that there is power in purring and that owning a cat has many health benefits.  I keep my cat healthy by ordering  and reviewing a multitude of healthy and hard to find items for cats from  The gang is always excited when a box from www.chewy arrives!

Cat owners are onto something. When your cat purrs within the range of 20-140 Hertz, pet parents that are nearby are therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations.  Petting a purring cat for example has been linked to lowering blood pressure and stress.  It has also been linked to decreasing symptoms of  troubled breathing or  dyspnoea, in both cats and pet parents.  Purring is good news for heart patients too; a recent study has shown that cat owners have a 40% less risk of heart attack.

To keep my cats purring, I decided to try Merrick's Backcountry Freeze Dried Raw Chicken Treats from This delicious grain free treat is made with real deboned chicken, chicken and turkey broth, chicken liver and deboned turkey for cats that crave a meaty treat as nature intended.  Backcountry uses  protein rich all natural ingredients that would have been part of the ultimate feline ancestral diet.

Merrick's Backcountry Freeze Dried Chicken Treats come in a resealable heavy plastic pouch and are on the firm side so they don't crumble in the bag as some other brands do, these treats hold their shape.  I like to mix in these pieces of raw freeze dried chicken in my cat's dry cat food as an added nutritional treat. Being freeze dried these treats are full of natural goodness and nutrients that are easily digestible. 

I also like the fact that the Merrick Company has been a family affair  since 1988.  They are located in Hereford, Texas just outside Amarillo.  The goal of the company is to craft wholesome, nutritious recipes that pets deserve. All their food is made in their kitchens in Texas with  no ingredients from China. This month at Merrick's Backcountry Dried Chicken Treats are on sale and marked down from $3.29 to $2.72 and if you use autoship the prices goes down to $2.58.  This is a very reasonable price for a high end freeze dried treat.
