The Fancy Feast Cat Advent Calendar Returns

Something something “sandy claws”

Wait, last year’s Cat Advent Calendar from the feline-forward folks at Fancy Feast was so popular that they’ve brought it back for this year? Who'da thunk it?

Answer: Everybody who realizes the unstoppable power of cats in our internetted times.

And, of course, the cats themselves. The cats would’ve “thunk” it, too – if they weren’t already too busy with their relentless and purely altruistic industry. You know: Sleeping, eating, sleeping, shredding the furniture, eating, sleeping, hocking up a nice juicy hairball that looks like a snot rocket from some flu-ridden shoggoth

Still, don’t the furry little slackers and marauders deserve a nice treat (or, in fact, several nice treats) this holiday season?

Once again, Purina’s Fancy Feast division has ’em covered, with its second annual advent calendar, which features 24 recipes – including Fancy Feast classics like Tender Beef & Chicken Feast Classic Pate and new limited-edition holiday recipes like Yuletide Turkey Feast in Gravy. Note: This year's calendar retails for $24.99, and pet parents can find it at Amazon, Target, Walmart, and probably elsewhere, too.

Bonus: Fancy Feast is releasing two new holiday-inspired flavors, Yuletide Turkey Feast with Sweet Potato & Tomato in Gravy and Hearthside Salmon Platter with Pumpkin & Spinach Pate – available exclusively in that Advent Calendar (and the Stocking Stuffer Sleeve).

So, when’s the best time to get this Calendar or that Sleeve?

Citizen, look at the time: It’s already December.

Best to get your kitty one ASAP, best to get your kitty one right meow.
