|Here is one of her cats hiding out in the pantry.|
My friend, Gail, really loves cats, especially her cats. I have mentioned Gail before in a post about string cheese and tampons, but I’m not sure if I have mentioned how much she loves cats? Everyone that knows Gail knows she loves her cats. Her cats love her, too, of course. In fact, one of them was so angry that Gail left for vacation once, that he peed right on her clothes in her suitcase. How dare she leave him!
Gail didn’t realize it that a such a crime had been committed, though.
Soooo….Gail pulled out those gym clothes from her suitcase and wore them to exercise.
Gail was on an exercise bike at the gym in said gym clothes.
Gail was beside a very attractive man.
Gail noticed him sniffing the air.
Gail realized, in horror, that her cat peed on her gym clothes and that he was sniffing the air to find out where THAT SCENT was coming from (I am actually not sure WHEN she fully realized she was walking around smelling like her cat’s tinkle).
So, Gail played it off….and started sniffing the air beside her in an attempt to somehow persuade the very attractive man that it was the person beside her that smelled like cat urine and sweat.
Gail thought fast.
I’m not sure the man was convinced…or maybe he was? I wish we knew.
Here’s the deal: cats are intentional, smart and cunning. And sometimes really mean. That’s why I don’t like cats. My blogging friend, Kimberly, from My Inner Chick wrote a recent post about her cat, Charlie, WHO PEED ON HER SON’S HEAD. Kimberly’s son’s head. On purpose. Case closed.
Anyway, back to Gail. She very recently changed jobs. Since it is no mystery that she adores her pets, her co-workers made her this very special cake:
|I’m not much of a recipe sharer on this blog, but…I couldn’t pass this one up.|
1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (12 ounce) package vanilla sandwich cookies
3 drops green food coloring
1 (12 ounce) package tootsie rolls
Serve it in an actual kitty litter box with a kitty litter scooper!
- Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).
- Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
- Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
- When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won’t need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy.
- Line kitty litter box with the kitty litter liner. Put cake mixture into box.
- Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape the ends so that they are no longer blunt, and curve the tootsie rolls slightly. Bury tootsie rolls randomly in the cake and sprinkle with half of the remaining cookie crumbs. Sprinkle a small amount of the green colored cookie crumbs lightly over the top.
- Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green cookie crumbs. Serve with the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.

***If you DO have cats, be sure to make this FAR away from them so they don’t think it’s a REAL litter box, for goodness sakes!***
