Juniper came to us in the spring of 2016, at barely two-months-old and barely two pounds. I remember the first night we got her and she finally settled down and took a nap in the folds of my long dress. Cassidy peeked into the play room, saw us both sprawled out and napping, and smiled when he shut the door. I think that’s the night I realized everything was going to be ok. We WERE going to bond. We had already started. We’ve been close friends ever since, even when she bats my hair.
There are always new stories to tell! How she waits behind doors and throws out a paw to hit our legs as we walk by. How she falls asleep in between two mattresses or behind the couch. The time she folded up into my bath towel and fell fast asleep and we couldn’t find her. That she once escaped into the outdoors, to our rising panic, and was found staring at the chickens and meowing at them. Luckily, she was happy to come back inside and there hasn’t been any escapes since.
Above all, we have a good love thing going on around here. It’s not only the fact that she’s eight pounds fully grown and has a perpetual kitten face, but it’s that she radiates happiness. Sometimes you meet a cat and they seem miserable or like they’re in the middle of an existential crisis. We have a cat that helps take bad feelings away. And she loves us so she has good taste too! That’s why it’s important for me to tell you just how much of a role that quality pet nutrition plays in the health and wellness of your pets. We have fallen in love with Hill’s® Science Diet® – our vet recommended pet food.
The variety of Hill’s® Science Diet® we use varies on the ages and stages Juniper is in. Right now she’s only a year old, so we’ve been looking at keeping her at a perfect weight. Over 70% of pets lost weight within 10 weeks on Science Diet Perfect Weight. We also love Science Diet Urinary and Hairball Control – to support the health of the whole urinary system.
Right now Hill’s® has introduced a national health initiative – Healthier Pets. Happier Lives.™ This is to help raise pet parents’ understanding of the importance of preventative care, and the role that proper pet nutrition plays in the health and wellness of their pets. We all believe that pets should live life to the fullest through daily quality nutrition and regular vet checkups. Consistent vet visits are critical to their health, and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommends that all pets have a check up at least once a year. At age 7, senior screenings are recommended.
Hill’s® Science Diet® has a full line of cat and dog foods that can help address a variety of common pet health needs. Our vet works with us to develop a customized plan for Juniper so we can address any current concerns or potential health risks, including nutritional considerations. It’s because consistent quality nutrition can help pets live healthier and happier lives!
