1 white cake mix
1 large package of vanilla instant pudding mix
1 large package of vanilla sandwich cookies (the cookies
with the creme on the inside)
(I used a box of vanilla wafers and icing)
Green food coloring
1 new kitty litter box and scoop
Instructions: Prepare cake mixes and bake according to the directions. Any size pans can be used.
Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to add to mixture.
Crumble vanilla sandwich cookies in small bathes in a food
processor or blender, scraping often because it sticks.
(I crumbled vanilla wafers and then mixed it with about
1/2 container of vanilla icing). Put aside the crumbles except
for 1/4 cup which green food coloring will be added.
Add 1-2 drops at a time and mix until you reach the desired
When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into a
large bowl. (I set aside some of the crumbs for the end in
case I added too much pudding). Toss with half the remaining
cookie crumbs. Add pudding gradually and mix until the cake
is moist, but not soggy. (I used about 1/2 of the pudding and
then added the rest of the crumbs. This ensure it not
Combine gently. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty!!!
Poor mix into the new and cleaned litter box. Spread it all
around the bottom. It may not look like much but crumble
the large clumps so it is not so clumpy.
Warm the tootsie rolls up in the microwave. I set it for
about 10-15 seconds. Curve the tootsie rolls or roll the out
and curl them up to look like a small pile of "kitty poop".
Add as many or as few tootsie rolls as you like. I used 3 of
the fat tootsie rolls and 3 skinny ones.
Sprinkle the rest of the vanilla cookie crumbs over the the top.
Last, sprinkle the green cookie crumbs lightly all over--this is
supposed to look like the chlorophyll that is in kitty litter.
I would love to see your pictures for those of you who try it out! Let me know the reactions you receive when showing off your hard work. I had a friend on facebook ask me why I was taking pictures of kitty litter and poop and putting them online!! :)

Now for the sad news...
This morning I took the dog outside and one of the older kittens was lying on the driveway, dead. It was soaking wet. I just assumed it had fallen into the large pond beside the house and for some reason hadn't been able to get out. So I went and buried it. I never thought to check the little plastic pond we have outside the side door. Once again, I'm taking the dog outside for a potty break and there's a second kitten floating in the little pond. I'm hoping the mother cat really did have three kittens so there is at least one left for her to take care of. So now I know the mother cat dragged one of the kittens out, hoping to save it, but it was too late.
I kept telling my husband that I wanted to take out the pond, but we just haven't gotten around to it. But it will get done this weekend, even if there will be a hole in the ground.
Sorry for such a sad story on a beautiful weekend......

Wednesday evening my husband and I are watching TV and out of the blue he asks if I would like to go to South Carolina this weekend. I was surprised but said yes. When I asked him what for he said it was a surprise for me. Well, he finally told me yesterday what we are going to do. In June he went with Boy Scout Troop 818 on their summer trip and they went through South Carolina and toured a naval carrier and a few other ships and helicopters. (He is an Eagle Scout and is also their Assistant Scoutmaster.) When I saw the pictures, I just made the comment that one day I'd like to go visit the same place. So that is where we are going. That is all he has planned for the trip so that before/after we can find other things to do as we make our way back home.
We are leaving tonight as soon as we get home and finish packing. I will definitely have a lot of pictures to post when we get back!!!
Don't forget to leave comments, Join my Blog, or link my blog to yours in order to be entered into the drawing!!
Altered Beauty I have not forgotten about you. :)

When I hear about Obama's Healthcare plan, all I can think of is how big an increase in medical services are we going to see? I understand that everyone needs insurance, but aren't those of us that have insurance going to have higher premiums since we can afford it in order to pay for the insurance of those who can't pay for it?
Sorry for my ranting, but I'm now up to 6 medical bills to pay for that add up to over $1500. Sometimes I wonder if it's really worth it.......
