Do you know an extraordinary man with a cat?

Purina Pro Plan is shredding perceptions of both traditional cat food and who typically loves cats by launching the Purina Pro Plan #MenAndCatsContest to celebrate the new Savor Shredded Blend. 

Purina Pro Plan is working to change the perception of dry cat food by introducing Savor Shredded Blend, an all-new mealtime experience that combines crunchy kibble and tender meaty shreds to provide both extraordinary nutrition and exceptional taste.

In order to change how people think of who typically loves cats, Purina Pro Plan is partnering with proud cat guy and “Devious Maids” actor Gilles Marini to search for extraordinary men who own and love cats. We are asking that people nominate the cat guys in their lives or that those extraordinary cat guys out there enter themselves by sharing a photo of them with their cat on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #MenAndCatsContest and tagging @ProPlanCat from August 31 – September 14. Those men could be featured in the 2016 Purina Pro Plan Extraordinary Men and Cats Calendar and win a year’s supply of Savor Shredded Blend.

The calendars will be used to raise funds for rescue groups nationwide through the Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue network. 

For entry details and eligibility requirements and to learn more about Savor Shredded Blend, visit  and let’s not only change the perception of who loves cats, but also help rescue organizations across the country find loving, permanent homes for cats just like theirs.

Welcome to Pet Central

Here at Role Mommy, we’re becoming quite the zoo – welcoming into our home a brand new kitten named Hazel (we fondly refer to her as “Weasel”), two new hermit crabs, and a lizard who sadly, croaked after succumbing to one too many crickets that had been deposited into its expensive tank for feeding (for anyone planning to purchase a lizard, here’s a quick tip: you’re supposed to give a lizard 5 crickets, not 15 at one feeding).

And while I normally do reviews of products and services for kids and families, imagine my surprise when the PR team for K9 Cuisine, a line of pet food and treats for dogs and cats (but not lizards) reached out to me to see if we were interested in sampling their healthy and playful fare. After a quick consult with Rudy and Hazel, they were totally down with it.

They were ecstatic since normally when boxes arrive, it’s usually groceries from Fresh Direct, camp clothes for my daughter or a DVD from Netflix. The cats and I tore through the box and uncovered a treasure trove of goodies – from wet food, to catnip toys, to healthy dry food, pet supplements, you name it, it was in there.

In fact, if I leave the pantry door open for too long, they’ll climb inside and paw at the bag until it tumbles off the shelf and deposits a few morsels of food on my wood floor. I have no idea why it’s so tasty, nor will I be sampling it anytime soon, but Rudy and Hazel are big fans of Core dry food. Plus, Rudy is also quite fond of the catnip toy and luckily, Hazel hasn’t discovered what it is exactly or else our psychotic kitten will be bouncing off the walls.
If you’d like to find out more about the pet food products offered at K9 Cuisine, then visit their website. The cool thing is, you can buy them in stores or order online if you run out of your pet’s favorite dish. Time to bolt…have to feed the hermit crabs!
