Naturally, when the goodies arrived, they had to be inspected. In fact, you could say they received a cat scan.

Cat Drops

     Mix one can of your cat’s prescription food* in a blender until pureed.  Add water one teaspoon at a time, as needed, to make a thick batter.

     Pour mixture into a sandwich bag and snip corner.  Place small “drops” (about 1/4 inch) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Place in oven and bake at 400 degrees for 10-20 minutes (cooking time is dependent on the size of the drops.)  Cook until drops are firm and do not lose their shape with a gentle touch.  Cool and use as treats.

     Treats can be stored in the refrigerator for 7-10 days or at room temperature for 3-5 days.

*A can of senior, maintenance or kitten canned food can be used for your pet.  Be creative and mix your own flavors by blending different foods.

 October Freebie

    October is my favorite month of the year.  I love setting up my calendar with all the Halloween activities for the month.  I’ll even go through a tunnel or two, in search of spooky fun.  In the spirit of Halloween, we’re giving away free Trick-or-Treat bags for kids.  They are sturdy reflective bags which probably hold enough candy for you and whatever candy you decide to share with your child.  

Some Call It Candy Scavenging

     That brings me to my next topic:  Adult Trick-or-Treating.  I didn’t even know this existed until my sister and I stumbled upon it a couple of years ago.  You see, we were cruising the neighborhood, checking out decorations (we saw a zombie crawling down a porch roof – that was my favorite.)  That year, the weather was downright balmy, so folks were hanging out in their driveways and front yards to enjoy the night.  We waved at a happy couple and they invited us to take what was left of their candy, so they wouldn’t eat it themselves.  My sister and I paused – for a split second.  Could this be true?  All we had to do was show up – not even in costume or anything – and people would just give us their extra goodies?  Holy Empty Calories, Batman!  We were on it. 

     Now, I don’t know if you know this, but I have 9 nieces and 2 nephews.  So you’d think there would be some Halloween candy payoff to be had, right?  That brings me to the following year and what I like to call Second-hand Trick-or-Treating*.  This occurs when a well-meaning, loving Auntie volunteers to accompany the kids on their Halloween rounds.  It’s so cute to see them dressed in costume, asking for something they haven’t earned and forgetting to say “thank you.”  So, Auntie is at the door with niece number, like, 5 or something, it’s late and -gasp- there’s more candy than kids in this neighborhood (yay.)  The unsuspecting homeowner asks Auntie, “Would you like some candy, too?”  “Oh my,” says Auntie ever so sweetly, while filling her jacket pockets with all manner of chocolate and nougat.  “Why, yes, thank you.  I will have some.” 

     This goes on and on until Auntie and her nieces reach the Holy Grail of Halloween.  Do you know what that is?  Say it with me folks:  The Unattended Candy Bowl.  There’s even a note (how quaint): 

Dear Children [“and Aunties,” which it doesn’t say, but which is clearly implied] 

     We are down the street enjoying ourselves at the Block Party [aka The Halloween Holy Grail, Part II] and invite you to help yourselves to the candy in this bowl.  This bowl is not monitored, and we have no way of knowing how much you’ll be taking, but we are sure you were raised correctly and will take only a few pieces each, leaving some good stuff for the other Trick-or-Treaters.  Seriously, people, don’t just grab all the KitKats and 3 Musketeers minis and leave Vanilla Tootsie Rolls for everyone else.  That’s just wrong.

Sincerely,  Mr. and Mrs. A. Thad Naive.

     Now, I could write about the Neighborhood Block Party and all the free food and drinks supplied by people I don’t know and never speak to the rest of the year – although everyone’s a friend at the holidays, am I right? – but I think I’m getting something like Writer’s Cramp in my pinky from holding it up funny while typing this.  It’s a real thing, I swear.

     Look for a future post featuring Halloween Haiku.  Send me your submissions!  ~~  Jen
