That month was when things really began to hit me, and I was due for a medication adjustment… it’s sort of a seasonal problem from November-March. […]

Friskies Lil’ Soups Lickable Cat Treats #chewyinfluencer

Chewy sent us the Friskies Lil’ Soups to try out this month at no charge. It’s a cat snack – supplemental feeding/topper, what-have-you, but it’s not meant as a complete meal.
