1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / chew toy for a wire-chomping cat? on: September 06, 2010 12:22:15 PM
Wondering if anyone has any ideas for a chew toy for a cat. Everything in the pet store is designed for dogs... The cat (Odin) loves to chew on wires, hoses, tubing, knitting needles, pencils, etc. I bought a big wheel of non-toxic tubing specifically for him to chew on, but he won't do it unless I'm holding it. I'm thinking of some kind of stand-alone thing, maybe made out of wood so it's heavy enough to stand up, with the tubing and other tasty chewy bits inserted so they stand up straight and he can nibble on them as he chooses. Any thoughts?

Here is a pic of the cat in question.

you might be able to improvise. i've made homemade liquors by soaking whatever flavor you want - nuts, orange peels, mint leaves, etc - in vodka for a few weeks and then adding simple syrup to taste. i've had hot damn and i'm pretty sure it is just a cinnamon flavor, with no other spices. maybe just soak cinnamon sticks in vodka until the flavor is strong enough (cinnamon sticks are pretty cheap, you can get a huge bag of them in the ethnic section of most large grocery stores) and then adding a simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, heated together until sugar dissolves and then cooled) until it is sweet enough. you might want to add some red food coloring after you get the flavor right and then package it in pretty bottles.

tacos and pasta are good ideas. if you are able to get a big pan for baking, you could do things like casseroles and have leftovers for a few days. chili isn't too hard either and you can also keep that in the fridge for leftovers to put over rice or pasta or in tortillas. and there is also rice and beans - cheap, filling, and easy to make Smiley

pretzels are awesome! we make them every year for our oktoberfest party using the "mall pretzels" recipe on allrecipes.com. except now we've graduated up to using a lye bath instead of baking soda before cooking them. you can order food-grade lye online. if you get it, the ratio is 40 grams of lye to 1 liter of water, stir until dissolved. the pretzels sit in the bath for about 15-30 seconds, and then you place them on a tray and bake them. try not to get the lye on your hands, it is a bit caustic, but it won't kill you. we think it makes them taste more like pretzels and as a bonus, they also seem to get browner and shinier than with baking soda. try it!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / ideas for septic system cover? on: September 11, 2009 08:22:24 AM
Was wondering if anyone had any ideas for something fun to either make or buy to place in the yard on top of our septic system. Right now, we have an old tire there and it looks god-awful! It needs to be light enough that it can be moved easily when the tank needs to be accessed. We were thinking of getting some kind of garden gnome or maybe a planter, but I was hoping for something more creative. Any ideas? Thanks!
