A Great Party Cake Recipe


1 spice or german chocolate cake mix (and ingredients listed on mix)
     1 white cake mix (and ingredients listed on mix)
     1 pkg white sandwich cookies
     1 large pkg vanilla instant pudding mix (and ingredients listed on mix)
     green food coloring
     12 small Tootsie Rolls
     1 new kitty litter box
     Optional ~ 1 new kitty litter box liner (Use only UNSENTED)
     1 new pooper scooper

1.  Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans).

2.  Prepare pudding mix according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.  Crumble white sandwich cookies in small batches in blender,
they tend to stick, so scrape often.  Set aside all but about 1/4 cup.
To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring
and mix using a fork or shake in jar.

3.  When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a large bowl.
Toss with half the remaining white cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding.
You probably won't need all of the pudding.  Mix it with the cake
and feel it; you don't want it soggy, just moist.  Gently combine.

4.  Line new, clean kitty litter box. Put mixture into litter box.

5.  Put three unwrapped Tootsie Rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat
until soft and pliable.  Shape ends so they are no longer blunt,
curving slightly.  Repeat with 3 more Tootsie Rolls and bury in mixture.

6.  Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top.  Scatter green cookie
crumbs lightly over the top, this is supposed to look like the chlorophyll
in kitty litter.

7.  Heat remaining Tootsie Rolls, 3 at a time in the microwave until almost
melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie
crumbs.  Or, only spread 5 of the remaining Tootsie Rolls over
the top. Take one and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the
kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs.

8.  Place the box on a newspaper and sprinkle a few of the cookie
crumbs around.  Serve with a new pooper scooper.

It has been scientifically proven that owning cats is good for our health and can decrease the occurrence of high blood pressure and other illnesses.

Stroking a cat can help to relieve stress, and the feel of a purring
cat on your lap conveys a strong sense of security and comfort.

any fur in their stomachs.

Cats have the largest eyes of any mammal.

The female cat reaches sexual maturity at around 6 to 10 months and the male cat between 9 and 12 months.

A female cat will be pregnant for approximately 9 weeks or between 62 and 65 days from conception to delivery.

Cats Are Special Friends
Cats are Special Friends

Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch

Purrs to signal "all is well",
and show more love than words could tell

Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side

A friendship that takes time to grow,
Small wonder why we love them so.
Cats make wonderful pets.  Because they're less demanding, they
can easily adjust to a variety of lifestyles and living spaces. 
Every cat is a true individual and has its own personality. 
It's true that cats value their independence a bit more than their
canine counterparts, but if you've ever been around cats before,
you already know they actually crave and require love
and companionship.  Cats are wonderful companions and
always give unconditional love.
Keep your cat indoors.  Keeping your cat safely confined at all times
is best for you and your pet.

Take your cat to the Veterinarian for regular check-ups.  If you do not have a Veterinarian, ask your local animal shelter or a pet-owning friend for a referral.

Spay or neuter your pet.  This will keep him/her healthier and will reduce the problem of cat over population.

Give your cat a nutritionally balanced diet, including constant access
to fresh water.  Ask your Veterinarian for advice on what and
how often to feed your pet.

Train your cat to refrain from undesirable behaviors such as
scratching furniture and jumping on countertops.  Contrary to popular belief, cats can be trained with a bit of patience, effort, and understanding on your part.

Groom your cat often to keep his/her coat healthy, soft, and shiny.  Although it is especially important to brush long-haired cats
to prevent their hair from matting, even short-haired felines
need to be groomed to remove as much loose hair as possible. 
When cats groom themselves, they ingest a great deal of hair, which often leads to hairballs .

Set aside time to play with your cat.  While cats do not need the
same level of exercise that dogs do, enjoying regular play sessions
with your pet will provide him/her with the physical exercise
and mental stimulation he/she needs, as well as strengthen
the bond you share .

Be loyal to and patient with your cat.  Make sure the expectations
you have of your companion are reasonable and remember
that the vast majority of behavior problems can be solved.
If you are struggling with your pet's behavior, contact your Veterinarian for advice.
