More Addicition, Luxor & Twitter

Samaritan: Hey, we received a package with more Addiction food. Someone must have told them we like to eat. So we ate it!

Rusty: Yeah, here we are checking it all out. It arrived right after Jan fixed the woofies that big pan of .... of....whatever it was. ( "Chef Needed, Apply Now")

Crystal (the kitty in the background walking away because the food hasn't been opened yet): We kitties received 3 cans of King Salmon & Potatoes, 2 cans of NZ Bushtail & vegetables., 1 bag of Viva La Venison and 1 bag of Salmon Bleu.

Buddy: We woofies got a box of raw dehydrated Steakhouse Beef & Zucchini Entree, 2 bags of Viva La Venison, and a bag of Premium Protein Formula La Porchetta.

Rusty: The first day Jan opened one of the cat cans of salmon. Here I am enjoying my share.

Percy: I ate my share of salmon too. However, when Jan opened the first can of NZ Bushtail, Rusty, Cameron and I turned up our noses and walked away. Sorry, Addiction, but it's true.

Cameron: I enjoyed the salmon but for some reason the NZ Bushtail doesn't smell fishy. What kind of fish doesn't smell fishy?

Cotton: Pssst, Cameron, I think bushtail is a posssum. Possums don't smell like fish.

Crystal, Cotton, Cyndi, Percy, Cameron & Rusty: We kitties enjoyed the salmon, but 3 of us didn't like the NZ Bushtail. And although the last time we ate the grain-free Venison without a problem, this time we all refused to eat it until Jan mixed it together with the bag of Salmon dry food. We would apologize but we are cats, and therefore we not only have the right but the duty to be finicky.

Buddy, Merci & Sam: We woofies ate everything without a fuss. We would have eaten the kitties leftovers too, but Crystal quickly dispatched them. (He's turned into a regular vacuum cleaner. Maybe we should make him an honorary woofie. )

Sam: Thanks, Addiction, for letting us try more of your pet food. For the most part, we enjoyed it. And although Jan refuses to try any of it herself, she likes that it's made from natural ingredients. Some of it is hypoallergenic for sensitive pets and some is grain-free.

Every once in a while we visit Luxor's blog, hoping for a new post. Unfortunately, Lux got very sick while on a trip with his humans last Christmas and was diagnosed with a heart condition -- dilative cardiomyopathy, where the heart walls become thin. Since then, his posts have been sporadic and few. We hope you will stop by today and every so often to let his human know Lux has not been forgotten and you still care. She lost her heart for blogging when Lux became sick, which is understandable. Perhaps you can leave an occasional note of encouragement, not so much for her to return to blogging, but just to let her know you're here for her. Pet bloggers are a community and they care.

And although we know it is hard to believe -- hey, we still doubt it! -- we signed up with Twitter today. Right now we haven't a clue what's what, but if you tweet, look for us. We're jansfunnyfarm (big surprise!).


  1. What a cool package. We too worry about Luxor and his person.

  2. I will look you up on Twitter (I'm @ReeseKitty). That is so sweet of you to check on Luxor.

  3. Nice food package! Good on you kitties for being fussy.

    I don't know Luxor but I will go visit right now.

  4. How exciting to get surprise packages sent to you.
    We miss Luxor and all his stunning photos too. We will pop in and let him know we are still thinking of him again.

  5. We will try to bully our Mommy into getting us a twitter account, so we can tweet you. No promises though sometimes she is a Luddite. We drive Mommy crazy with our food. Right now us cats are acting like vacuum cleaners. Fenris is always polite and eats whatever Mommy sticks in front of him, we needs to teach him a thing or two about managing beans. ~S,S,C & F

  6. What a great package you all got. Looks like everything is really yummy...

    PeeEssWoo: My Twitter is Khyra - imagine that!

  8. We have hears a lot about addictions food but have not tried it. WE too worry about Luxor. We are so sorry that he is so ill and miss his posts. We will keep reminding Mom to stop by from time ot time just to say hi.,

  10. I sure do miss Luxor. I hope they are all right.

  11. I miss Luxor very much too and hope he and his bean are okay.

    That Addiction food sounds yummy and I like that it has all natural ingredients. I don't think it's available in the UK though.

    If Alfie and Simba's signatures don't reappear I'll get them to do new ones, lol! :) xxx

    P.S. That rain chorus video is amazing!

  12. OM NOM NOM!! We are on our way over to your place!!!!!

  13. We have visited Luxor in the past and have also wondered about what is happening. You are so kind to make mention of them. We will go visit them now!

    Coll package!

  14. Wow...what a great package of foods! We were wondering what happened to Lux. Now we are very sad. We will visit right now. Thank you for letting uSSSSS know!!!

    Love to the Funny Farmers!!!


  15. Two packages of food! You're lucky kitties and doggies!

    We're looking forward to trying out this stuff too

  16. Hey Funny Farmers,
    You have our permission to make Boru and honorary woofie. He desperately wants to be a dog and he isn't finicky AT ALL. Maybe Alex and Jenny should pull his kitty kredentials. He actually steals people food off of their plates if they are left unattended.
    We'll stop over at Luxor's and leave a note for them Thanks for that input.

  17. We like the Addiction foods too...but not as much as some of the other stuff we eat...we miss hearing from Lux...such a handsome cat he is...we'll go by and say hello...we tweet too...not frequently can find us at theislandcats...of course!

  18. Thanks for reminding me about Lux. I hope everything is okay. I went over to leave a note of hello.

  19. Hi

    I was browsing around when i stumbled upon your page. Was reading your latest post on Addiction. My kitties are on Addiction too! I'll usually get for them Venison(their least favorite), Possum and Unagi(most favorite) They have been on Addiction canned food for the past year and a half coz one of my kitties, he's allergic to fish and we havent got much choice of 'fish-free' food around so they have to be on Addiction till we come across more varieties of 'fish-free' food LOL!

  20. Oh that's so pawsome... Surprise for every doggie and kittie. :)

    ~ Bae
