Better than Catnip… Spirulina!

You may remember Goji, the Vivapura warehouse cat from a recent blog…
Goji loves superfoods just as much as we do!
She loves her algaes especially, and I think I know why…
(***see below for more info on algae. Our cat Goji doesn’t care, she just knows it’s the good stuff!)
In my opinion, animals are great teachers when it comes to food choices.
They don’t have the same kind of brains as us humans so they don’t have to worry about emotional eating…
They eat what they know will serve them well.
Check out this new video where I catch Steve feeding Goji spirulina…
She laps it up, sits back and enjoys the benefits ūüôā

We love you Goji!
