Catnip Innovation and Meowijuana

Meowijuana believes that playtime for cats should be anything but boring.

As a new kind of catnip company, Meowijuana is bringing passion and innovation to playtime. Everything from the products sold to the humorous brand itself stimulates the senses of cats and cat parents. Most importantly, Meowijuana comes with a hearty helping of quality and fun.

The Ideal Blend

meowijuana-catnip-blendOnly 70 percent of adult cats are effected by catnip. By creating a catnip blend with Valerian root or silver vine, Meowijuana’s catnip blends create a spectrum of natural euphoria for the majority of cats.

Valerian roots is a perennial plant native to Europe. It produces a natural acidic chemical that strengthens its odors. This chemical also can help in mood regulation (i.e., anxiety) and other social or behavioral functions.

Silver vine is a nontoxic herbal plant found in the mountains of Japan and China. As the most popular cat treat in Asia, it offers an extremely euphoric, non-addictive experience for cats.

Catnip is closely related to mint and contains Nepatalactone. This essential oil is found in the leaves, stems and buds and can cause a euphoric sensation in cats when inhaled.

Hand-Trimmed Catnip

meowijuana-catnip-budsHand-trimmed catnip provides longer potency and stronger cat attraction.

The flower tops, or buds, of a catnip plant contain higher amounts Nepetalactone. Nepatalacton is the natural chemical in catnip that makes cats love it.

When giving catnip buds to your cat, Meowijuana recommends crushing a flower piece between your fingers and giving it to your cat after removing the stems. This releases the essential oil trapped and will release a positive experience for your cat.

MeowyJ’s for Cats

Relax, this isn’t what you think. Each single-serve catnip session delivers a perfect moment of delight. Simply break in half, sprinkle the catnip around and watch your cat enjoy.

Catnip and Kittens

meowijuana-meowyjsCats under the age of one may not respond to catnip. Even after they reach that milestone, only 70 percent of cats respond to traditional catnip.

If your cat doesn’t respond, try blends that include catnip, silver vine or valerian root.

How Often to Give Catnip

Meowijuana recommends giving catnip every other day to cats. After a few minutes, the effectiveness wears off and your cat will need to be away from it for awhile to experience a reaction again.

Stella & Chewy's Kibble Difference

raw-coated-stella-and-chewysStella & Chewy’s focuses on making raw nutrition more available and convenient for pet parents.

With new raw coated kibble, Stella & Chewy’s is providing best-in-class solutions for pet parents looking for simple, less processed and highly palatable kibble.

The Kibble Difference

The Stella & Chewy’s kibble difference happens in three steps.

  1. Find the good stuff for every batch of kibble. 65 to 70 percent of every Stella & Chewy’s recipe is grass-fed red meats, cage-free poultry or wild-caught fish. Then, organic fruits and vegetables are added for vitamins and nutrients. Each recipe is potato, grain and gluten-free.
  2. Gently oven bake the kibble. By baking at a lower temperature, the food keeps more of its vital nutrients.
  3. Add the raw nutrition. Freeze-dried raw, also made with the finest ingredients, coats the entire kibble batch. So, your dog will find rich ingredients and raw goodness in every bite.

Ongoing Benefits

The protein-rich baked kibble is 65 percent pure animal ingredients and natural oils. It’s rich in omega fatty acids for a healthy skin and coat. And, added probiotics aid in optimal digestion.

By baking at 200 degrees, the baked food retains nearly all of its nutritional value, including the micro-nutrients, phyto-nutrients and antioxidants in food.

According to Stella & Chewy’s, these recipes also help dogs achieve an ideal weight, healthy hips and joins, amazing skin and coat and immune support.

Two Types of Kibble + Raw

Raw Coated is baked kibble coated in nutritious freeze-dried raw. Each bag delivers about 2 percent raw.

Raw Blend is baked kibble coated in nutritious freeze-dried raw and then Meal Mixers are blended in. Each bag delivers about 7 percent raw.

Beyond the Food

Stella & Chewy’s passion for animals goes beyond the food. Stella and Chewy were both adopted as adult dogs. When you buy a bag of Stella & Chewy’s food, a meal is donated to the Journey Home Fund. Stella & Chewy’s donates up to 250,000 meals each year to adult dogs waiting for adoption.
