Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Is Purr-fectly Pleasing: Gift Basket GIVEAWAY Announcement!

Maxwell Endorses Purr-fectly Pleasing & Palatable Ideal Balance™ -ThoughtsFurPaws.com Offers FREE IDEAL BALANCE™ GIFT BASKET GIVEAWAY!

Imagine the sun starting to peek through the bedroom window. You’re fast asleep enjoying dreams of your cat purring and kneading, purring and kneading – no wait! Your cat IS purring and kneading, telling you, “Hey! It’s time for my breakfast!” This is Max EVERY morning…

Didn’t we grow up learning that breakfast is the most important meal of the day???

Well kittehs need breakfast too! Whether you’re getting ready for work or staying around the house for the day, it’s still breakfast time for your cat. Why not start the morning by serving your cat a nice, tasty dish of wet cat food? Measure her food and place in her dish, stir slightly, and serve! Your cat will rub your ankles and warm your toes!

Since cats are grazers by nature, you’ll want to leave a dish of her dry food for her so she can nibble throughout the day. You know the routine: nibble, bathe, sleep – nibble, bathe, sleep. Ah—the life of a cat…

If you’re at home during the day, you’re no doubt busy with activities, however kitty is constantly asking for attention. (I know Maxwell comes over and walks all over my laptop if I don’t pay enough attention to him while I’m writing… MOL.) Giving your cat treats throughout the day is sure to make her feel special, and you don’t feel guilty when you get busy.

Now, it is dusk, you’re walking through the door from work or winding up your day at home and it’s supper time! Your cat greets you, and often “talking” meow, meow, meow….”hello, it’s great to see you. I’m hungry!”

Sound familiar?Hills Ideal Balance Product Layout

Your kitty is not just saying she’s hungry for food; she’s hungry for your attention. Treat time! Have her treats in a convenient place so you can pat her on the head, hand her a tasty treat and all will be right in the world again.

Now it’s supper time. Mmmm, more of the wet food is a great appetizer! As you’re spooning her food, she’s smelling the aroma and twining through your feet purring anxiously. Refill her dry food dish for the evening nibbles and to help satisfy her hunger throughout the night.

Offering your cat complete and nutritious meals every day eases your mind and satisfies your cat.

Our friends at Hill’s® had you and your cat in mind when they created their line of cat foods. In the Hill’s tradition, making food that is nutritious is a core philosophy; quality (and safety first) is above all else. Hence, you will have peace of mind when feeding any Hill’s food and treats to your cat.

What’s more, feeding Ideal Balance™ brands of wet, dry and treats assures that your cat is getting complementary natural nutrition. Often times when pet food brands are mixed, it can throw off the perfect balance of natural nutrition that Ideal Balance so carefully provides. Plus, all Ideal Balance wet, dry and treats are made with NO corn, wheat or soy and NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Maxwell IBIdeal Balance is the trifecta of natural nutrition for your cat!

Here’s a great meal line up for your cat, or you can choose which Ideal Balance food you think your cat will love most!


Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Roasted Turkey Recipe – Gourmet taste of turkey in a soft, smooth texture is a great way to start the day.

  1. Our mom tries to feed us healthy food so we’ll stay around a long time. She also want us to experience a variety so we won’t become accustomed to one brand and get finicky. We’d love to try this food and treats.

  2. Amy Orvin says:

    I have 2 dogs and 4 cats and they are GREATLY SPOILED!! I think they should win because they love real meat and love Hill’s! I’d choose the CAT basket if I win. Thank you!!

  3. Jennifer P says:

    My canine baby, Vix, is an 11 yr rescue. Her brother, a Springer died a couple years ago, and she won’t eat dry food anymore. Actually all she’ll touch is meat, fish, eggs, cheese and occasionally Vanilla Yogurt. Since she’s pretty healthy I let her get away with this. Beside wolves didn’t eat grains or starches and so I don’t really think dogs necessarily need them either. Mostly they provide filler. So why enter? Well she’d like the treats I’m sure, and I’d love to be able to donate the bowl and food to my local shelter. I won a toy recently and I’d like to put it with a bag of food or some treats as a sort of enticement to help get a dog rescued. Anything I can do to help spur animal adoption is a good thing!

  4. Marg says:

    That does look like great food and we haven’t tried that yet. There are 21 cats here and one dog. So we would love to give it a try since we sure do want to remain all nice and healthy. Have a great day.

  5. Carolyn M says:

    Kitty needs some spoiling with four dogs in the house including a puppy!

  6. Jo says:

    Our home has two wonderful rescues. A dog named Stella and a cat named Ziva Zophia (aka Zkhat). Zkhat is the one we would like the gift basket for.
    She is kind of difficult to satisfy with dry food and her favorite thing is deli ham or turkey. We don’t think this is the best for her, and would like to start a program of quality food with her. Our Stella recently started with a new grain-free food she likes very much and she is doing fine on it.

    So please enter Zkhat in your giveaway and we thank you very much.

    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  7. Helen Miller says:

    I should win because I would love to give this basket of great food to our little shelter!

  8. Jerri Carol Compton says:

    I have 5 wonderful cats and would love for the to be able to try this food. Please enter us in your giveaway— we’re always on the look-out for something that will offer a little (healthy) variety.

  10. Christine says:

    I have five cats I’ve taken in from off my neighborhood streets: Sweet Pea, C. Lisa, Oliver, Toby, and Figaro. I’m always looking for good food that they will eat! Thanks so much…

  11. Jan tries to feed us a variety so we don’t get finicky and she prefers to feed us as healthy as possible on a limited budget. We are three dogs and five cats.

  12. There are 2 dogs and 2 cats here. Us dogs think we should get to try this out Socks Cat is on a y/d for his thyroid and Scylla Cat is on diet food but us dogs can still eat whatever we wants as long as we can convince Mommy it is good for us and we thinks this would pass her test.

  13. Ann Staub says:

    Hello – nice blog, stopping by from the Cat Blogosphere. I have one dog and one cat. The dog, Shiner, has tried this food before and loved it so she wouldn’t mind winning some more. And the cat. Honey Delite, has not tried it before, so she would love to! Especially the treats and canned noms 🙂

  14. I have two special needs cats in the house, so getting this food would be much appreciated! I have three fur babies total and I love to spoil them all 🙂

    • MarcosLen says:

    Hi Jaim!
    Jason and I have three kitties; they are all shelter babies that we saved … or rather, they saved us 🙂

    While volunteering at our local shelter, Jason and I tried to be strong and not take on another animal; we just couldn’t afford it. It was so heartbreaking to see firsthand the reality most of these animals face. This is where we got our third and most recent baby, Lola.

    When we found Lola, we were so choked up … we HAD to take her. Someone had literally cut her back leg off at what would be her “knee.” The shelter vets told us she should be fine with the residual leg. About a month after we brought her home, her nerves started growing back, and the nub began to bleed. She was in a lot of pain. She needed to have the rest of her leg removed. We nearly went broke to make sure she had the best care and the best vet to do it. On the day of her surgery when I had to hand her over to the vet tech, I bawled my eyes out. We waited nine hours for the surgery and post-op recovery to be complete before we could take our very groggy baby girl home.

    Lola was in a head “cone” (I started to call her my little lamp there for a while 🙂 for nearly three months. The little stinker found a way to get to her hip bone and lick it raw even with the cone on. The vet gave us a larger cone, and it was so hard to watch her move around … she was so little, and the cone was bigger than her! The healing process was super hard.

    Now, a little more than a year later, Lola is fully healed and LOVES her brothers, Murphy and Simba. They are very gentle with her, but sometimes they could take her or leave her. She has no idea (most of the time) that she is missing her leg and tears around our house and up the steps attacking them. I can just tell they’re rolling their eyes … “You dang kid! Get off of me!!” She still gets the “phantom limb syndrome,” though … it’s hard to watch her fall over and to look down at her leg, like, “What happened?”

    Our kitties are our kids … literally. It is very expensive to feed them because, well … they are spoiled and eat better than we do 🙂 We’d love to have a chance to sample Hills Ideal Balance. Just like Max, Simba is on me starting at 5 a.m. purring and “making muffins” waiting for his soft food breakfast 😉 The other two follow suit 🙂

  16. Amber Stowell says:

    Oh, and Murph, Simba and Lola say they would like to donate half of what we might get to our local animal shelter where my husband and I volunteered. They rely on donations only to feed the homeless animals sheltered there …

  17. @MissStellyBean says:

    I’m a 5 month old doxie/terrier/chihuahua mix and I have 2 cat brothers (Jack & Jameson) who are Siamese mixes. We are all rescue animals, in particular, I was rescued from a kill shelter in South Carolina. Jameson came from the SPCA and Jack was abandoned in behind a Petsmart almost 15lbs overweight (he is now a much healthier 11lbs). We would be over the moon to win a cat basket! Not only would the cats be thrilled to win (they are voracious eaters!) but our mom would be happy too b/c Hills is a brand we know and trust and real meat is what mommy prefers to feed us 🙂 Plus with mom’s weight management concerns, health and proper nutrition is mom’s top priority! Thank you so much for the giveaway and your consideration 🙂

  18. I would really love to win one of the cat food baskets so I can do something nice for my soft-hearted sister. She has eleven (!) cats — all rescues — because people are always dumping kittens out in the country where she lives and she can’t say no to a cat in need. With so many fur kids to feed, she always needs food so winning this for her would be a wonderful blessing.

  19. Helen Rowland says:

    I only have one dog, but my sister has 2 dogs and 2 cats and i would love to win it for her to give as a gift! She just got out of college and would love to show her a way of congrats and help her out with her animals because i know money is tight! She would love this so i hope i win one for her!

  20. Kim says:

    I would love to win this gift basket not only for our dog Charlie because he loves Hills and we try hard to give him balanced nutrition by feeding him fruits and veggies in his diet. I would also like to be able to gift something to my local animal shelter as they are in dire need of food and supplies.

    Thank you,

  21. Ashly S says:

    I would LOVE to win this gift basket for my two dogs, who are both rescues – one is a puppy mill rescue. They need balanced nutrition badly as one is overweight and one is underweight. They have had Hills before and scarfed it right up. We also firmly believe in the Hills mission and have a lot of respect for the organization as a whole and how it helps those pets in need.

  22. Cynthia R says:

    I am always looking for something for my cats, Moon and Magic to try. Magic is so persnickety. She will suddenly decide that she has no interest in a particular brand, for a reason apparent to only her. Then will meow plaintively beside her dish until you open up something else for her try.
