There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life,
music and cats.
-- Albert Schweitzer
WHEN GOD MADE CATS
When God made the world, He chose to put animals in it, and decided to give each whatever it wanted. All the animals formed a long line before His throne, and the cat quietly went to the end of the line. To the elephant and the bear He gave strength, to the rabbit and the deer, swiftness; to the owl, the ability to see at night, to the birds and the butterflies, great beauty; to the fox, cunning; to the monkey, intelligence; to the dog, loyalty; to the lion, courage; to the otter, playfulness. And all these were things the animals begged of God. At last he came to the end of the line, and there sat the little cat, waiting patiently. "What will YOU have?" God asked the cat.
The cat shrugged modestly.
"Oh, whatever scraps you have left over. I don't mind."
"But I'm God. I have everything left over."
"Then I'll have a little of everything, please" said the Cat
And God gave a great shout of laughter at the cleverness of this small animal, and gave the cat everything she asked for, adding grace and elegance and, only for her, a gentle purr that would always attract humans and assure her a Warm and comfortable home
Law of Cat Inertia
A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon by some outside force - such as the opening of cat food, or a nearby scurrying mouse.
Law of Cat Motion
A cat will move in a straight line, unless there is a really good reason to change direction.
Law of Cat Magnetism
All blue blazers and black sweaters attract cat hair in direct proportion to the darkness of the fabric.
Law of Cat Thermodynamics
Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case of a cat, in which case all heat flows to the cat.
Law of Cat Stretching
A cat will stretch to a distance proportional to the length of the nap just taken.
Law of Cat Sleeping
All cats must sleep with people whenever possible, in a position as uncomfortable for the people involved, and as comfortable as possible for the cat.
Law of Cat Elongation
A cat can make her body long enough to reach just about any counter top that has anything remotely interesting on it.
Law of Cat Obstruction
A cat must lay on the floor in such a position to obstruct the maximum amount of human foot traffic.
Law of Cat Acceleration
A cat will accelerate at a constant rate, until he gets good and ready to stop.
Law of Dinner Table Attendance
Cats must attend all meals when anything good is served.
Law of Rug Configuration
No rug may remain in its naturally flat state for very long.
Law of Obedience Resistance
A cat's resistance varies in proportion to a human's desire for her to do something.
First Law of Energy Conservation
Cats know that energy can neither be created nor destroyed and will, therefore, use as little energy as possible.
Second Law of Energy Conservation
Cats also know that energy can only be stored by a lot of napping.
Law of Refrigerator Observation
If a cat watches a refrigerator long enough, someone will come along and take out something good to eat.
Law of Electric Blanket Attraction
Turn on an electric blanket and a cat will jump into bed at the speed of light.
Law of Random Comfort Seeking
A cat will always seek, and usually take over, the most comfortable spot in any given room.
Law of Bag/Box Occupancy
All bags and boxes in a given room must contain a cat within the earliest possible nanosecond.
Law of Cat Embarrassment
A cat's irritation rises in direct proportion to her embarrassment times the amount of human laughter.
Law of Milk Consumption
A cat will drink his weight in milk, squared, just to show you he can.
Law of Furniture Replacement
A cat's desire to scratch furniture is directly proportional to the cost of the furniture.
Law of Cat Landing
A cat will always land in the softest place possible; often the mid- section of an unsuspecting, reclining human.
Law of Fluid Displacement
A cat immersed in milk will displace her own volume, minus the amount of milk consumed.
Law of Cat Disinterest
A cat's interest level will vary in inverse proportion to the amount of effort a human expends in trying to interest him.
Law of Pill Rejection
Any pill given to a cat has the potential energy to reach escape velocity.
Law of Cat Composition
A cat is composed of Matter + Anti-Matter + It Doesn't Matter.
Chicken livers (1 container)
Chicken broth, (canned or cover livers and add about 1 T. Dry boullion.
2 jars baby food (1 green vegetable and ! Yellow vegetable)
1/3 C rice (I like brown rice but any kind can be used)
Rinse livers, cover with water, or broth
Simmer until almost done, add rice and finish cooking.
Remove from heat and mash, (either fork or potato masher)
Stir in the baby food.
I then scoop the
food with an ice cream scoop, and put the scoops in a flat plastic container
with a lid. This can be frozen and only 1 scoop at a time removed to be thawed.
If like discuss with veterinarian for other additives if needed..
1 32 oz. Plain or vanilla flavored yogurt
1 jar banana baby food
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
Combine and mix well in blender. Put in small plastic cups and freeze.
Gobblers (Pet Treats)
1 C ground turkey
2 C white flour
1 C cornmeal
3 T. Vegetable oil
3/4 C Water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In frying pan, cook ground turkey, crumble into small pieces and set aside on a paper towel. (I run it through the food processor to grind it up very fine.) Combine flour and cornmeal in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg, oil and water. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix well. Fold in ground turkey and mix again. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead until thoroughly mixed together. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut out shapes. Place on greased baking sheet and bake 15 minutes or until firm. Cool and serve. Keep any leftover in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
