Update: A PetSmart spokesperson told us these deals are only valid for customers who received the coupons directly from their PetPerks accounts. They are valid for one-time use only.

Your cat loves you. He purrs, rubs up against you and makes a shameless display of devotion and affection.

Then your cat bites your toes and runs away.

Perhaps your cat is plotting to kill you.

For all his little quirks, your feline friend needs you to feed him. Or maybe you don’t want to put up with that nonsense and choose a dog instead.

Either way, here’s an awesome deal for you: PetSmart has two new offers for free cat food or free dog food for PetPerks members.

Get the Coupons, Feed the Kitty (or Dog)

If you have a pet, there’s a good chance you head to PetSmart on a regular basis. If you’re a crazy cat lady (and that’s OK), you practically live there. It’s a playground of cat toys, treats and feline luxuries most of us haven’t even dreamed existed.

That means you’re also probably a PetPerks member. Smart move. If you’re not, you can sign up for a PetPerks membership to get frequent deals for you and your little buddy.

Right now, PetSmart has two great coupons for PetPerks members.

One is good for a free bag of Wellness brand dry cat food or dog food (2- to 6-pound size). Simply print out the coupon, and take it to your nearest PetSmart store.

The second coupon is nearly identical. With this coupon, PetPerks members can get a free bag of Nutro brand dry cat or dog food (3- to 5-pound size).

Act fast because these coupons expire Aug. 14!

That’s it. There doesn’t appear to be any catch, except that each coupon is limited to “one coupon per customer, per transaction,” so you can’t print out multiples and snag a stack of free food in a single transaction.  

Whether you own a dog who wants to lick you to death or a cat who stares at you with self-righteous contempt from the windowsill, you owe it to yourself to cash in on these deals. Who knows, it could be your pet’s new favorite food.
