Puppy Chow

This Saturday my girls and I are suppose to have "COOKIE DAY". A day to bake a bunch of different type of cookies. So I have been looking through old recipes and I found this one. Its not a cookie recipe....but its a easy and fast treat! My kids loved it when they were little!

1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1 stick butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
cereal (wheat, rice, or corn chex, crispix etc.)
Melt chips, peanut butter and butter together in big pot over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in enough cereal to soak up this mixture. Dump into a large bag filled with the powdered sugar and shake.

Ratcat the albino ferret

What would you do if you went outside one freezing below 0 degrees day in February and you found one of these living underneath your deck? The poor little thing had earmites and pneumonia, but had been surviving by chumming up with my outside cat.....eating and drinking his food. The vet said that a lot of people buy them and end up turning them loose when they discover their stinky smell. I just think that is horrible. Yes, they do stink...but scrubbing down the cage with apple cidar vinegar is an easy fix.
Well, anyway being the pushover that I am when it comes to animals, we went and bought it the best ferret cage we could find with three levels. My husband named it Zeus, my son named it Kodo from Beastmaster, and I named it Ratcat---you know like Catdog! Cause this little guy looks like half rat and half cat. So guess which name stuck?! My grandkids like him, but they are a little afraid of him because he loves to nibble toes when he plays.
