Some of my friends recently went away on a short holiday to the seaside and asked me to look after their cute cats. Not having any pets of my own (only kids….very different), I was a tad nervous, but found that I ended up enjoying the task. I always got a loud “meeeooowww” when I popped in! I felt so needed!
This is Milkshake…he loves attention.
The other kitty, Tiger very rarely made an appearance so I was never able to sneak a picture of him. It did worry me that I hardly laid eyes on him, but was told that cats do love to go exploring. I think Tiger likes it a bit too much. Unless it was only because “Mom” and “Dad” were away…
Now when you plan to go away, I bet you always try to leave the fridge quite bare – to avoid certain nasty surprises upon your return….. so that made me think of a little challenge…
I suggested that I use whatever suitable leftovers I can find in their fridge and cook dinner for them on home coming day. Bonus both ways – they get a cooked dinner after a long day of driving (sweet!) – and I get to be creative with their leftovers (yay!).
Here’s what I had to work with:
Not so fresh milk
Good supply of garlic, chilli, ginger
Ready made Napoletana pasta sauce
A few chunks of pineapple
As with any good mystery box, you don’t need to use every single ingredient…. just make the best you can with what you have (although I must say this was not a bad mystery box at all!)
This is what I came up with:
