Grumpy Cat Takes Friskies “Create & Taste” Test Kitchen

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

grumpy-cat-8-20-15-event-shelter-smOne of my favorite-ist cats, next to my own, that is, is Grumpy Cat.

According to Christine Amoscato, Account Executive for Taylor Strategy, on behalf of Friskies, Grumpy Cat and her furriend, Nala Cat “recently engaged in a friendly competition with a little help from WWE Diva Natalya at the Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen where they cooked up a one-of-a-kind experience at the Create & Taste Kitchen. Cats and Friskies foods went head-to-head in a truly unique way.

In late-August, attendees at the Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen had a chance to meet and to take photos with Grumpy Cat and Nala Cat, to interact with WWE Diva and cat lover Natalya™, and to participate in fun, cat-food themed activities to help donate up to 10,000 meals to shelter cats.

At the event, Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen attendees participated in games and activities for both teams that triggered a donation of one Friskies meal to shelter cats. People outside New York were able to help shelter cats by sharing on the social networks whether their cat was on #TeamSaucy, like Grumpy Cat, or on #TeamTender, like Nala Cat.

Friskies also partnered with Petfinder to help showcase adoptable shelter cats at the Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen who needed forever homes.”

While now it’s after the fact to attend the Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen event, you can still participate in the Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen sweepstakes as the contest ends 12 noon ET, September 30.

Go to FriskiesKitchen for a virtual Friskies Create & Taste Kitchen experience plus a BuzzFeed quiz to find out “What Kind Of Purrrsonality Does Your Cat Actually Have?”

There, you’ll also learn how you can feed your cat’s personality with SauceSations or Grillers – and you can download a coupon!

Friskies Pull ‘n Play Cat Toy and Treat

Saturday, June 20th, 2015

pullnplayWe’re excited about the brand new Friskies Pull ‘n Play Toy and Treat.

I recently received an email from Christine Amoscato, Assistant Account Executive for Taylor Strategy, on behalf of Friskies. (She’s been in contact with me off and on for the last couple of years about various promotions by Friskies.)

This time, her news is that “Friskies is launching a “first-ever edible strings” toy with an Interactive Adoption Event!

Friskies has teamed with pro football punter Steve Weatherford and celebrity cat Waffles to bring a one of a kind cat adoption experience to New York City at the “Friskies Playhouse” on Friday, June 26.

Ms. Amoscato stated: “The Pull ‘n Play Pack takes cat treating to a whole new level! It combines “the first-ever” tender edible strings with a wobbly cat toy that also dispenses Friskies treats! That means playtime is more delicious! Try all 3 delicious string flavors. And get ready to let the good times wobble!”

“Consumers can also participate in the Most Playful Cat in America sweepstakes from June 15 to August 10 for a chance to win a cash prize of $1,500, a Wobbert toy and a one year supply of the new Friskies Pull ‘n Play product.”

(The sweepstakes is online so even if you’re not in New York City, you can participate in this.)

While we don’t live anywhere near NYC, perhaps some of you do, and can make it to this June 26 event with Steve Weatherford. If you go, let us know!

friskies-voting-2014The results are in and it’s official; kitties make the best videos (and subjects)


Not so long ago, I posted about this year’s The Friskies contest and their search for cat video submissions for their this year’s Annual contest.

And now, in case you haven’t heard, I’m letting you know four Category winners and a Grand prize winner were chosen and the Oscars of cat videos were awarded at a special Gala in Los Angeles, Wednesday, September 17.

Dumpster Kitty, starring Cole and Marmalade from Tampa, Florida, was the overall winning video; they and their creator took home the Grand Prize of $20,000, plus $5,000.

You can watch all of this year’s winning videos by clicking to

P.S. And while you and kitty are watching the videos, she might be interested in snacking on a treat like the Friskies Party Mix Beachside Crunch Cat Treats.

Grumpy Cat and Friends

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

grumpy-cat-summerWe recently received an email from Lindsay Balsamo, Intern Rep for Taylor Strategy, on behalf of The Friskies. as they are having several fun things going on this summer that involve Grumpy Cat & Friends: Nala Cat; Hamilton the Hipster Cat; and Oskar the Blind Cat.

This time, the gang are “debuting” their sophomore video single: “Cat Summer”!

And Mikey, Billy and I are helping get the word out about these Cat Sensations.

Lindsay writes, “The latest collaboration pays tribute to the group’s late pal, Colonel Meow, who passed away earlier this year.”

Further, as was done last year, this video has a “charity component” so that each time the video is viewed “one meal of Friskies Grillers (yum, yum – NEW) will be donated to cat charities nationwide on behalf of Colonel Meow, for up to 1,000,000 meals!” That’s a lot of noms to help feed the kitties.

The video is up now at YouTube. You can also get in on additional online hullabaloo when you use hashtag #CatSummer. These kitties really rock out!

Yours in viewing Cat Summer for charity,
