If you’ve been on my Instagram account at all, you know that I love animals, especially Sesame and Tigger, my cat and dog. Our menagerie also includes Nutter Butter (hamster), Spike (bearded dragon), and a newly added Thumper Joe (bunny).
I readily admit I’m biased, but my pets – especially Sesame and Tigger – are the cutest! Check out these adorable faces…
By the way, our pets have either been ones that people needed to find new homes for or that we adopted from the local pound or shelter. YES, even the purebred brindle boxer (Tigger) and the purebred snowshoe siamese ragdoll (Sesame).
Great pets are at local shelters looking for homes every.single.day. I highly encourage you to start your search at a shelter if looking to add a four legged friend to your family.
I and Love and You Pet Food
I received a box of treats and food for my beloved pets from I and Love and You brand pet food. I shared the free range bully sticks with a neighbor (well, to be technically accurate, I shared with her dog ) and she raved about I and Love and You brand food. She’d gotten it for her dog at Unleashed by Petco.
I have to admit that this brand of pet food was new to me, but obviously I was behind the time.
Check out all the items they sent for my pets!
For all you Coloradans, I and Love and You is a local company founded right here in Boulder! Their products are now available in Kroger stores (King Soopers around these parts), as well as, Whole Foods, Alfalfa’s, and Sprouts. If you are wondering about a particular store, you can find out all the places you can buy it here.
The I and Love and You pet care line has a lot of buzzwords we often hear used to describe people food, but I know that many of us want to take great care of our pets, just like we do the rest of our family. Things such as:
- Grain free
- High protein
- Natural pet food
- Wellness solutions
- Grass fed, free range, cage free meats without antibiotics
- Allergy friendly
- No dyes or artificial ingredients

I have a friend that recently purchased a puppy from a very particular breeder and we laughed at the very detailed menu of what the pup was and was not allowed to eat that my friend had to agree to before being allowed to adopt the puppy. The list was more detailed than what I gave to my daycare when my kids were babies!
But, even that very particular person would be ok feeding her animals the I and Love and You products. I checked – the bully sticks are made from free range Brazilian cattle.
The treats have been a BIG hit so far and I’m looking forward to seeing how Tigger does with a transition to the I and Love and You food. I’ve been traveling a lot lately, so am waiting until I’m back from this next one before starting her on the new food. I’m hoping it helps with her joints.
Stay tuned to find out and to enter the I and Love and You giveaway I’ll be hosting!
