When leaving your cat home so that you can go on vacation or head out to work for the day you may start to have feelings of guilt associated with this time away. The thing about cats is given their independent nature, they really are just fine while you’re away and can be easily entertained during a day alone or even a week alone so as long as they have ample food and water to get proper nutrients. I always make sure that my cats are fed high quality food with ingredients that I feel happy with and know that they'll love. Currently I'm feeding both Stripes and Kitty Wellness® Complete Health™ Grain Free Indoor: Salmon and Herring.


I have been feeding them the Wellness® brand for quite some time, but recently was at PetSmart and saw the NEW Complete Health Grain Free option and just knew that the Salmon and Herring would be loved by both. All of Wellness® recipes are free from corn, carrageenan, soy and wheat as well as artificial colors and flavors. They are also formulated with ingredients that were carefully chosen and formulated with vitamins and minerals for my feline friends optimal health.


My cat Kitty has always been an only cat so she's not quite keen on sharing her food. She's also a very picky eater and I have to not only make the decision to feed her food that is good and healthy for her, but one that she will like, and she just LOVES the Wellness® Complete Health Grain Free line. Currently there are three options: Adult (deboned chicken and chicken meal), Indoor (Salmon and Herring Meal) and Kitten (deboned chicken and chicken meal).


She's not the only one who loves it. My daughter's cat Stripes, loves it as well and so do I. So why do I love Wellness®? It's not just the fact that my cats love it, but because I know that the team at Wellness® also cares about our pets health. They are a diverse team of animal lovers, vets and nutritionists and they have the best interest of my furry friends at heart. They know that fillers and artificial ingredients are no good, so they're not included and they focus on simple, pure and authentic ingredients, exactly what we would want in our own bodies.

If you are still on the fence about whether or not the Wellness Complete Health line is a great option for your own feline friends, Wellness® offers a Catisfaction Guarantee.

Catisfaction Guarantee: if your cat doesn’t like the new Wellness recipes, please return the unused portion back to Petsmart for a full refund. 

So remember when leaving your feline friend for any length of time, make sure that you're leaving them a high quality food and here are a few other tips to keep them entertained while you're away.


Setup a Fun Zone – think about what your cat enjoys doing for both entertainment and play, set a little fun zone area for your cat to go hang out in during their home alone hours so they can get frisky and happy.

Only Child Syndrome – if your cat is an only child in your home, then maybe consider adopting a furry sibling for your feline friend. Remember, adopting a furry sibling for your cat will be a lifelong decision, but if you’re away often this may be super beneficial.


Puzzle Snacks – to give your cat that treat you may give them a few times a day, setup some puzzle snacks for them. These are usually little balls that you can place treats inside so your cat can bounce it around until he gets that treat out. Wellness® also offers a cat treat line so you know that you're feeding your feline friend treats that are good for them.

Feed Curiosity – cats are naturally a curious breed of animal, set up a toy closet where there is a favorite toy peeking out. As your cat wanders home alone, they may be curious about that peeking toy and work to get it out, entertaining their curiosity for hours.


Play Some Music – it’s been proven that all pets feel more comfortable being home alone with background noise. Consider getting a jazz CD or similar to have on repeat while you’re away so the cat feels as if someone is there with them.

Whatever you choose to do as a means to entertain and soothe your cat while you’re away ultimately is up to you, simply take the time to review this list of ways to entertain your cat while you’re away and implement strategies that will work for the personality of your feline friend, and be sure to leave them high quality food that is good for them like Wellness® Complete Health available at PetSmart®.
