The Story of My Staff…and SHEBA Entrées for Cats

OzzieI have been asked how it came to be that I have a feline staff of four who work with me (notice that I didn’t say for me) on my blog, so today I would like to tell you their stories. Each one is as different as the four personalities they represent. I cannot say that I own them. Each of them found me and I am so lucky that they did! First, of course, I must introduce you to our CEO, Miss Ozzie. She is a tortoiseshell or “tortie” in coloring and has that “tortietude” that goes along with it! She rules with an iron paw, keeping everyone in line… including me! My daughter brought her home at six weeks old and she has been with us for sixteen years! She even lived in France with me for a year and, as a result, speaks French and loves French cuisine. So it is no surprise that her favorite food is SHEBA® Chicken Paté Entrée. And I love that because I know that all SHEBA® Patés are meat first, meaning that all SHEBA® Patés start with real beef, poultry, or seafood as the first ingredient. KittyOur Miss Kitty first appeared in our yard after a terrible storm, injured and lost. We planned to keep her while we searched for her home… to no avail. That was fifteen years ago! Needless to say, she found a new home with us and we are so glad she did! Her favorite food is SHEBA® Salmon Paté Entrée and that makes me happy because I know that all SHEBA® seafood entrées are made with responsibly sourced seafood and fish that follow the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch recommendations. The biggest brands in the category (Friskies, Fancy Feast) do not guarantee their seafood is sustainably sourced. Baby KittyPerhaps the most well-known member of our staff is our co-host Baby Kitty. His story is a special one for us here at the Plate Addict’s since he came to us as a new-born nine years ago. Having been abandoned by his mom, he was bottle-fed from birth by yours truly. As a result, there is a special bond between this handsome fellow and me! :-) Although his name is not manly, his appetite certainly is! His favorite food is SHEBA® Tuna Cuts in Gravy Entrée and I like that because I know that it is made of real meat as a first ingredient after the broth. It's the perfect food for our super star! IsabellaAnd finally, the lovely Miss Isabella is our youngest staff member at eight years old. Like the others, she also found us, having been discovered all alone at six weeks of age in a store parking lot. She is our little beauty queen, reigning as the most vocal with the biggest appetite! As for her favorite SHEBA® entrée, Miss Isabella loves them all! And I love knowing that all SHEBA® recipes are formulated without grains, corn, or gluten, and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. None of the other big mainstream wet cat food brands (Fancy Feast, Friskies, 9 Lives, Meow Mix) can say that! There are three different lines to choose from… not only Premium Patés, but also Cuts in Gravy and GRAVY DESIRES™ entrées as well, each featuring recipes made from carefully selected, quality ingredients.  And your cat is guaranteed to love them or you will get your money back! Now that is hard to beat! Check out all of their products and get the details on their website at How about you? Have you tried SHEBA® Entrées for Cats for the real personalities in your house? Tell me about it in the comments.

  1. They are all gorgeous cats, Deb and now it's nice to know their stories. They all won the lottery finding a home with you. Can't say the crew here have tried that brand so we will give it a go. I'll let you know what they think which I'm sure I'll know within seconds. Have a great day. Deb

  2. Debbie, you have a wonderful staff. I know each of these sweet felines enhance life at your home. They are lucky to have found you. I love that Miss Ozzie got to have a year in France with you. That makes her really special!
    Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

  3. Love the stories of how the cats came to be yours!! I did try Sheba pate after your last review and Charlie loved it. I will be buying more when I return home. I think it is a very good wet food for my special guy!

  4. Your cats are adorable and I loved hearing all about their lives. I don't have any cats so have not tried Sheba Cat Food.
    But if I did I surely would give it a try.
    Have a wonderful week.

  5. You have a wonderful staff of kitties. They are all adorable!!

  6. I have bought Sheba and my two former feral kitties lobe love love it.. I bought it on the recommendation of a friend whose 20 year old cat wants nothing else. I hope you mind the ceo and the rest of the "corporate" higher ups. Beautiful felines...lucky you to have been chosen.

  7. Whoops love love not lobe lobe lol

  8. Love the bio's on your staff! I too have 4 cats that found me and recently based on recommendation, switched them to the Sheba cat food. They had begun turning up their noses at the Friskies canned. I love the quality and they love it too! So thanks, or I would have never thought to try it.

  9. LOVE cats and love that you care for them so well as they truly are family! You give them the best and I LOVE that, too!

  10. Debbie,
    I truly, believe there was some divine intervention on the "Feline Staff's" behalf. . .and yours!
    All your "Staff" are beautiful. . .but still, he steals my heart away. . .that handsome, Baby Kitty!!!
    Thank you for sharing their story. . .and yours. . .with us!!!
