Finishing up three or four posts that aren’t cooperating. They’re not funny enough, they have no point, no denouement, no zing–nada. Instead of a rational thought process, I’ll offer up a scattered smorgasbord of tasty appetizers instead of a whole meal.

Remember these cats?

bandit in a boxOur Bandit used to talk to us that way. After a while, I started answering her back. She’d say, “Meow“, I’d respond, “Meow”. She’d stroll into the kitchen and greet me with a head nod and a brief “Mew”. I’d imitate her head nod and answer her. She tried so hard to communicate with us! If we didn’t go to bed at the same time every night–if we stayed up a bit longer than usual–Bandit marched into the family room with an outraged sense of purpose-maintain eye contact–and kind of growly-meow, walk a few steps toward the bedroom, and then walk back to us. If we didn’t follow her, she’d leave in a huff and wait on the bed and if we didn’t move quick enough, one swipe of her her paw let us know she was pissed. She had the sharpest claws. They spoke volumes.

    • No, check it out, only 1/4 cup oil. Reduce the sugar a bit, no prob, and you can eat the whole thing like I will! Oh lucky you to have a kitty. I’ve been without too long!

  1. I have full on “meow” conversations with one of my kitties (Belle), but she never cooperates when I’m trying to record it. She seems to know that if she talks back when I’ve got the camera out her voice will forever be captured and shared on here. One day though I will trick her into talking with me when she doesn’t know I’ve got the camera out and rolling.


  2. That cake sounds good! Seems to go along with my “Be healthier but don’t go crazy” New Year resolution. I’ll have to try it!


  3. Well, aren’t you just as cute as they come! If I’d known you could whip up a cake,I would have asked you to guest blog! I had a cat that used to tell my son to wake up…I mean he used to say,(as clearly as a cat can,”Wake up,Ant”, after hearing me try to get Anthony up for Kindergarten.(Visiting hours at the sanitarium are 2-4 over other Saturday,if you want to visit me.)


    • That’s funny! I am so lost without any pets in my life right now. I haven’t been without animals since I was in high school. sigh. Yes, I bake. A lot! My mom taught me everything from scratch–bread, cakes, cookies, gefilte fish, everything! I have an applie pie post I’m working on. You’ve owned your own bakery, I’ve been told I should sell my stuff and I researched it. My biz name was “Family and Friends” How’s that for a coincidence! our local and state regs made it impossible for me to do it. I wanted to start out of my house and not use a commercial oven and they wouldn’t let me.

  4. Love the pics of you of course, the Hello Kitty slippers, the cat in the box, the talking cats (I’ve seen them before many times), and the recipe. You are killing me though with all these brownies. And now I have to cook again LOL.


    • I just made the most killer carrot raisin almond bread with only 2 TBS oil. It’s unbelievable. I’ll post the recipe. And it’s easy for you people who have a zillion children. Glad you like the meow speak. I knew you would have already seen the talking kitties. Me too a ton of times!!

  5. My cat talks to me too, usually he meows in quite a demanding way most nights, as if he’s saying ‘Get to bed, can’t you see it’s dark outside and I want to sleep on your back’.


Now it's your turn to share your pearls with me. Cheers!
