I had an opportunity to try a pet supply delivery site, MrChewy.com. I loved the name right off because of my own pet Chihuahua, Miss Chewie.
We thought our Chewie was a boy until we took her to the vet the first time. I guess I though it was impolite to check her puppy junk out too closely.
Until we adopted our new kitten, Pinky, in September, all of our pets were well into their twilight years. Fergie, our ragdoll cat, is sixteen. Patches, our big housecat, is twelve or so. Chewie, is almost fifteen. That’s like 273 in human years. Here’s Chewie. That’s her pink walking harness. And a heart for privacy. She’s very modest.I estimate I’ve made 842 trips to the grocery or pet supply store for my pets over the years. For a long time I bought whatever was on sale or just the cheapest. Recently I noticed feeding them better (and more expensive) food really has made a difference in their health and appearance.
And by “health and appearance” I mean that when I feed my old cats an expensive brand they stop throwing up under the couch.
Still, something about the grocery store makes me so tight on the purse strings. I hate paying out for a $13 bag of cat food when I’m choosing beans for my family because one brand is three cents cheaper.
From Mr. Chewy,I ordered a bag of our usual cat food, some Frontline flea treatment, and some chew treats for Chewie (it’s not just her name—it’s a way of life!) I thought the Frontline was very competitively priced.
And Chewie loved her chew toy.I ordered on a Thursday afternoon and my box arrived the next day. It took less than 24 hours for my full order to arrive at my door! I don’t get shipping that fast with my Amazon Prime membership. And because I hit the minimum purchase amount for free shipping (over $49), the FedEx was on MrChewy.com
I was very pleased with the product and service and will consider using them again. I’m talking with my husband about setting up a standing monthly order. I would love for our pet food and supplies to just magically arrive on the doorstep once a month. Getting a package is so much more fun than going shopping.
I found the prices on the cat food to be about the same for what I usually pay at Kroger, but I did see some things at MrChewy.com that were priced lower than store prices.
The only thing that wasn’t perfect was that the type of Iams cat food I normally buy was out of stock, so I had to choose another kind of Iams. Not a big problem. Also, they have over 70 brands to choose from, with more being added.Though you can see my cats can’t get enough of the Iams cat food I got from Mr. Chewy.
I was very happy with my MrChewy experience and if you have a cat or a dog, check them out and let me know what you think.
