Howdy, how're you going?

Being a dog-friendly office, we had had quite a lot of Poppy time at work over the last couple of weeks much to everyone’s delight. I notice she has a ritual when we arrive in the mornings: a quick scoot around the desks and offices to check out who's in the house and (no doubt) who has left a tasty morsel in their rubbish bin. Then it's laying in wait for each person to arrive whereby they are greeted with a lashing tail and bum wiggle with the expectation of a pat and a cuddle. From there, Friday's pie day so there are sad brown eyes and chins on knees everywhere trying to scab a tiny morsel of pie crust. If I can’t find Poppy in my office she is generally trying to score a titbit or has managed to find a sunny spot by a window - uncanny how they manage to do that.

Anyhow, from the Jimbo's "Only in America" file, this month we have the awards for the Wackiest Cat and Dog Names for 2016. I have always chosen fairly simple pet names on the basis that going outside at night to call your pet shouldn’t sound like a rendition of an aria by a drunken sailor but… we are talking America here.

3 Wackiest Dog Names of 2016
1. McLoven the Stud Muffin
2. Kanye Westie
3. Angus Von Wigglebottom

3 Wackiest Cat Names of 2016
1. Agent Jack Meower
2. Shakespurr
3. Meowmadeus

Photos and background stories of the winners and the top 10 nominees, along with the full list of the 50 wackiest dog and cat names, are available at the organiser's website. We are certain that kiwis can be just as creative with their pet names - read on to learn about our own Wackiest Pet Names competition!

Featured Product

Jimbo's Supreme

Jimbo's Supreme is one superior product, if we do say so ourselves. This is one of our top-sellers, and for good reason; even fussy cats love it. Jimbo's Supreme is made of prime beef cuts which are expertly hand-trimmed by our qualified butchers until 100% they are visually lean, making this product low in fat and high in quality protein. If you are interested in seeing the cuts of meat we use and the work that goes in to preparing our delicious pet food products, visit the production page on our website.

The Jimbo's Gallery

We love to hear all about your pets! Send in your fur family photos to our online Gallery and share their stories with us and the rest of the world. Every entry goes in the monthly draw to WIN $30 of Jimbo's vouchers!


Congratulations to Fiona from Rotorua for winning August's draw with the above photo of her fur baby who went missing for over two years and recently found his way home!

Jimbo's Wackiest Pet Names

Do you have a pet in your life whose name sometimes draws interest? Does it match the likes of the USA's Angus Von Wigglebottom or Meowmadeus the cat? We want to compile a Jimbo's list of Wackiest Pet Names, and your pets could be on it!

Send us a photo of your creatively-named pet for our Wackiest Pet Names list, and you could win them some goodies! Our favourite Cat and Dog name will each win a Jimbo's goody pack including $30 of Jimbo's vouchers, and the first four runners up will receive prizes too!


Congratulations to Fay from Oamaru for winning last month's survey competition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question about our products, or want some feeding advice? Send us your questions for our Pet Advisor to answer.

"Why does my pet drink less water now that it eats Jimbo's?"

Aside from more energy and a shinier skin & coat, one of the first things people notice when they start feeding Jimbo's is that their pets drink less. Is this a problem? Not at all!

Our products contain over 70% moisture. This means that by eating Jimbo's not only are your pets having a nutritious raw meat meal, but they are also getting a portion of their required daily water intake. Some pets who are on 100% raw diets hardly drink any water at all!

We encourage pet owners to feed raw meat at least once a day - especially pets who could with a bit of extra hydration.
