Is My Progress Fair?


Now before I get to the part about my recovery progress bein’ fair, I need to tell you something else first. Remember my giveaway last week from SureFlap motion activated sealed pet feeder? Guess who WON??



Mudpie from Melissa’s Mochas, Myseries and Meows WON the amazing #SureFlap sealed pet feeder. I now her wet food will now never dry up.

And there is even another fortunate kitty to gain this product. I am gifting my “test product” to Miss Eddie, from Never 2 Late Pet Training ‘cuz she was the runner up to Mudpie!

Now let me tell you about how this whole thing-a-majig of my “Dad P and Savvy progress” is turning out to be not so fair for Mom L.

You see, every morning since Mom L retired, I come up next to her in bed after my breakfast and snuggle next to her legs while she reads my pals’ blog posts to me.

Hanging out with Mom L

Well, now I have discovered that Dad P gives pretty darn nice scritches and pets, I am hanging out with him, down on our bedroom floor every morning after I have my Dad P served up breakfast.

I ask you now, “Is this fair to Mom L who has loved on me for five years?”—or is this just a case of me and Dad P finally getting our relationship sorted out?

Now Mom L is OK with my new progress, but she is feeling mighty lonely without me snuggling next to her every morning. Why, she has to read and comment on my blog pals and just HOPE she got my comment right!

Wet Food That Never Dries Up #sponsored


Lots of you dine daily, sometimes twice a day, on yummy canned cat food. But if you are like me, and prefer to nibble here, nibble there—over a period of an hour or so, then you know that wet food can get downright dry!

In fact, research tells us that our cat guardians can waste up to a third of our wet food just because it dries out. And of course, what cat in its right mind wants to dine on dried out wet food. All that wasted cat food is a shame because first of all, there are community cats out there who could sure use that food and tossing it also costs our guardians as much as ten to fifteen green papers a month—per cat!

Mom L was really enthused when we were offered an opportunity to do a product test and review on a new to the market sealed pet feeder. SureFlap®, an award winning pet product specialist has recently introduced the SureFeed® Sealed Pet Bowl.


Take a quick look at the highlights of this innovative new product:

  • Motion-activated lid – the Sealed Pet Bowl is not microchip or collar tag operated so it opens for any pet
  • Sealed bowl keeps food fresher and prevents wet food drying out, making it more palatable for your pet
  • Suitable for both wet and dry food. Bowl capacity 400 ml or two pouches of wet food
  • Prevents flies settling on your pet’s food
  • Keeps pet food smells locked away
  • 6 months battery life (4 x C cell batteries – not included). A low battery indicator will flash when the batteries need changing
  • Colorful bowls available to purchase separately (1 x grey bowl included)
  • 2-year warranty

FTC Disclosure: We received the SureFeed® sealed pet bowl for free and were compensated to share our product review and host a giveaway. The opinions in this review are our own, no one influenced our experience of this product. Savannah’s Paw Tracks reviews products in which we believe our readers may have interest. 


This feeding bowl has motion sensors on three sides and is motion activated. So if there are two or more of you cats in your home, then this feeder allows all of you to munch from it. Unlike the microchip activated pet feeder by the same company, this one is not selective as to what cat can step up and dine.

This feeder learns—no, seriously! It can really LEARN—what motion it will allow to activate the food cover. It sets a certain distance to be allowed based on where you place it. Once it has learned all that, it is ready to keep your  wet cat food tasting yummy for many hours. You just paw up to have a bite and the lid opens almost totally quiet—


Now you can have your fill in peace and quiet—


—then when you turn tail and leave, that smart feeder bowl very quietly closes its lid and waits for you to come back later to reopen itself so you can have some more still moist, not dried out, wet food.


Check it out if you don’t believe me!

The SureFeed® Sealed Pet Bowl has a unique integrated seal to help keep food fresher for longer. It not only prevents wet food from drying out, but also reduces pet food odors in the home. And if you are a cat who likes to dine outside, this bowl will keep those pesky flies away from your food.

Mom L found this bowl easy to clean. The feeding bowl comes out easily and allows her to clean up the whole unit. And just to avoid being bored with the color of your food dish, there are other colors, even divided bowls, you can order. It comes with a gray dish which as we cats don’t see in color, worked just fine for The Kid Sage.

something is missing here

The Kid Sage was our product tester. Mom L really appreciated the smart “training settings” she could use to get TKS used to having her food dish open and close right in front of her. Of course, that did not bother TKS one bit.

How am I gonna get to that delish wet food?

How am I gonna get to that delish wet food?

However, the only caution I must give all my readers is this—if you happen to have a timid, cautious cat like me in your home, be very careful that this feeder doesn’t frighten them out of one of their nine lives.

I know I lost at least half of one of my nine lives when I walked past the feeder and it MOVED!! Mom L had it set up at TKS’ feeding space, but that is right near mine. I saw that thing move and I did not return to my regular feeding space for two weeks. Even though Mom L was following the training settings and it was only on the slightest movement setting, it still scared the heck out of me.

Of course, TKS had no problem with any movement as long as she could get to the food!

Whoa! that is so cool—guess I better get that bite before it closes up again

One of the most thoughtful parts in the design of this product is that the bowl size takes into account whisker fatigue for cats. The bowl is a generous 9 14(W) x 8 14” (D) x 2 78” (H), overall and 4 18(W) x 6 516” (H) x 1316” (D) on the inside. It is plenty flat and wide to keep even the most gloriously long whiskers from being crunched and feeling uncomfortable.

Now for the best part—SureFlap® agreed to allow me to GIVE AWAY one brand new SureFlap® Sealed Pet Feeder to one of my lucky readers.
