This week's blog is written by a new member of the Freshpet Team, Courtney.
When we finally moved out of our small apartment in New York City to the Jersey suburbs, the first thing I wanted to do was add to the family. Although I plan on having a small herd of critters in the future, I decided to ease the family into it by starting with a kitten. We adopted him from the Jersey Animal Coalition
. He was a tiny little thing that instantly melted our hearts, and my son named him Bally. We had a great time picking out all the new kitty essentials: litter box, comfy bed, bowls, feathers and spiders that hang from sticks and doorways, and jingling bells. But the most important decision was choosing the right food.
I grew up on a farm with a dozen cats. We fed them dry food without giving it a second thought. There just didn't seem to be anything better out there. I cannot tell you what a big "a-ha!" moment I had when I first came to Freshpet. I thought, "Wow! There is a solution for those of us wanting to feed our pets like we feed our family - fresh and healthy."
I started Bally on Freshpet Select Roasted Meals for Cats
twice a day. At first Bally was skeptical. After all, he wasn't even fully weaned when we brought him home, but it didn't take him long to realize fresh meat and veggies taste great. Now he paces in front of the fridge whenever I'm in the kitchen, as if to say, "Come on Mom, I know where you keep the good stuff!" He's so full of energy, has a beautiful shiny coat, and is growing like a weed (do I sound like a proud Mom or what?).
I am so happy to be part of a team dedicated to helping pet Moms and Dads make better choices for their pets. And I know Bally is very happy, too!
