The Rescue of Duke and Where #HealthyMeetsHappy


This post is sponsored by Wellness® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Complete Health and NEW Complete Health Grain Free Cat Food available at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness or PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

We welcomed Duke to the family two months ago, adopted straight from a shelter shortly after he was surrendered. What can I really say about the state this cat was in when we first laid eyes on him? He was in poor shape, to say the least. Grossly underweight, and his beautiful, long apricot-colored hair was heavily matted. The volunteer who spoke with us informed us that his entire underside had consisted of so much matting, that they had no choice but to shave it off. To boot, his tail was on the slender side, looking disproportionate to his shape and general size, an indication that his nutrition wasn't where it should be. We knew immediately that there would be a lot of work involved, but we knew where Duke belonged: home.

The "road to recovery" for Duke had to begin with the most essential task: getting him on a wholesome diet that offered the nutrition needed to make him happy and healthy. I knew nothing less than an amazing food would be suitable, considering that our feline friends and other animal companions eat the same food every day---unlike the varied diet that most of their owners maintain. Naturally, I turned to Wellness as the source for not only adequate, but optimal nutrition to establish and maintain Duke's health. And let me tell you, he was happy with this dry cat food from the get-go! I quickly discovered that Duke is a picky feline, and not just any food will do. He prefers certain flavors, and textures, to others. Through trial and error, I've found he won't even walk up to bother sniffing some foods---whether wet or dry---and impatiently paw at others before I've even managed to finish opening the packaging. Standards certainly suited to royalty, I'd say.

Wellness® Complete Health™was a selection that Duke simply couldn't eat fast enough. I was very pleased to find the wide range of Wellness products available at my local Petsmart. He loved it immediately. His preference? The Wellness® Complete Health™ Grain Free Adult with deboned chicken and chicken meal. He enjoys this recipe so thoroughly, he will happily chow down a few pieces as a treat between feedings, and even choose it over several brands of cat treats! The grain-free options from Wellness are available in three varieties, and in sizes from 2.5 lbs to 11.5 lb bags. The Wellness standard for natural ingredients sets them apart from competitors, keeping their recipes free from unnecessary junk. I was very impressed at how well that these recipes are formulated, sourcing high quality ingredients, including sources of omega fatty acids, to create an excellent food. The Wellness Complete Health cat food has certainly received Duke's stamp of approval, and Wellness is certainly where healthy meets happy!

Full and content, Duke is ready for some leisurely time, but not too far from his favorite food!
