    My two cats are around 3 years old. They are like a 16 year old boy. You can not feed them enough. Finding great deals really helps. They go through a 3.15 pound bag of dry food in 1 week. That does not even include the can of cat food daily.

    Thanks again for getting the best deals on pet food back in the weekly Just Basics blog. I appreciate it.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jun 19, 2015

    ascherer - no shame in loving cute little four-legged buddies - or in finding great deals on their food! :-)

  • ascherer Jun 19, 2015

    Faye - Thanks. If you only knew the stories I could tell about all the cats I have shared my life with. I am a crazy cat lady. =^-.-^=

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jun 19, 2015

    ascherer - happy to oblige. :-) That is such a cute story about your cats on the truck bed cover.

  • ascherer Jun 19, 2015

    Faye - Thanks for remembering our furry family members. I know me and my two cats appreciate it. I type that as I watch my two using the cover over the bed of DH truck as a trampoline.

    Happy Friday to all. Try to keep cool today.
