Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy for Us and #NutrishForCats for Skates the Cat {Review+Giveaway} #MC #Sponsored

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Nutrish for Cats. I received a sample of Nutrish for Cats to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

Today I am excited to chat with you about a new product from Rachael Ray.  This is the first natural food for cats called "Nutrish".  Skates the Cat has been a part of our family since Miss Madison was eight years old.  She got her as a cute little fur ball for her 8th Birthday. Miss Madison is fixing to turn 18 so Skates has been with us for a long time . How could she not be family?

New Rachael Ray Nutrish for Cats 

When I feed my family I like to feed them fresh healthy ingredients like chicken or fish.  Chicken or fish is the #1 ingredient in delicious "Nutrish" recipes.  There's never any junk like meal poultry by product meal, artificial flavors or preservatives.  It is just plain simple wholesome recipes with a great taste your cat will instinctively love.  And boy does she LOVE it. 

This healthy food for cats really seems to please Skates.  She comes running and circling when she thinks it is meal time.  One thing I noticed  right away about the Nutrish wet cat food is that it does not have a horrible smell.   Some canned foods  we have tried smell  really awful and I just can't stand to give them to her . The Nutrish food that we tried did not have that at all.

Her favorite is the chicken purrcata wet food

Skates is just like the rest of the Whitehead Clan and a picky pants.  Many times when I feed her she will turn and walk away or take a bite or two and then leave it .  When Nutrish is down Skates acts like it is the best cat food she has ever eaten.  You can call and call her when the food is down and she will NOT turn away.  She eats every bite and licks her chops meowing for more.  Skates favorite flavor is the chicken purrcata (don't you just love the name).  It makes for one happy kitty. 

Look for these wholesome recipes available in dry formulas and wet formulas with fun flavors like Chicken Purrcata, Ocean Fish-alicious and Lip Smackin’ Sardine & Mackerel where you currently shop for your family's groceries.  Where to Buy Nutrish.

Skates is not the only one in the family who loves a good chicken dish.  We do too.  I recently found a recipe for  Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy Recipe over at  The Country Cook.  I pinned it and it has been on my list to try for a while now.  I  changed it up just a little bit but you could definitely stick to the original recipe and it would still be amazing chicken. 

Slow Cooker Chicken and Gravy  was delicious and a  big hit with the family.  The chicken is so super moist it really just falls apart in your mouth. Plus I almost always have the ingredients in my pantry making it easy to throw in the slow cooker last minute.   They are inexpensive ingredients making this slow cooker chicken and gravy a very budget friendly family meal.  All you do is toss the ingredients into in your slow cooker and then wait.  It can be served over mashed potatoes, white or brown rice or even egg noodles. Making it easy to change up.  You can also add in a favorite veggie or two. I really like to add carrots into this one.  I have to be sneaky with my veggies  to get picky pants to try anything so hiding it in gravy works some days.
