Baking Buddies: Cats and the Joy of Culinary Creations

It is okay to let them help measure ingredients. How else can you tell when a cake needs "two kittens' worth of sugar"?

You can let them help with decorating a cake occasionally, like this kitty is doing here. Isn't he talented?

Also, as much as your cat wants to make your coffee, please don't let her. This is strictly a grown-up business.

Laundry Lovers: Cats and the Art of Helping with Washing

Is laundry the next big item on your to-do list? No problem! That's what cats are for! To help out!

Mind you, as much as the dear little angels want to help, the washer and dryer are extremely dangerous for cats.

Never let your cat visit the laundry area unsupervised and always check inside to make sure no cat has made his or her way into one of these machines.

No dryer? No worries! Your cat will be delighted to hang your laundry on the drying rack! Look how proud this one is of his good work!

Once it's dry, your cat will most likely get busy with folding everything.

Really. Cats are masters of folding laundry! They just take their time planning ahead.

And sometimes they get so tired from all the hard work, they take a quick nap.

The results are usually really good though. Just look at this proud cat presiding over the folded towels!

It's what I've always known, cats are the most wonderful, loving creatures ever!  Here we see just a bit of the work they do everyday, around the house, not expecting anything but a cuddle!  I see cats cleaning closets, doing laundry, making sure our pantries are stocked, cleaning floors, making cakes and stews and coffee too! all because they love us.  I would never have it any other way!

Jasmine was at least slightly offended today when I didn't invite her to help me with some mending.  After all, who needs a needle when one has a cat with nice sharp claws?

LOL That's so funny! My cat Rascal loves to go inside my bathroom closet where I keep the towels. I have a picture of him in the closet. He likes to take a nap in that closet too, when I put dry dirty towels on the floor. He likes to lay on the towels. LOL Cats are So Funny!

Connor and Murphy always like to help me scoop the litter box.  Then they sniff around it for a few minutes to make sure it's up to their standards.

Now, if we could ONLY get them to gather up their own hair!!!  I enjoyed every single one of these pix, and I'll say it again, how could anyone hurt such a cute animal?? The kittens in the measuring cup and the last 2 pix are precious. This is why I have my 7 cats spayed and neutered! I'd be keeping every single one of their offspring. They are all strays, and I love each and every one of them like they were $1000+ purebreds. Someone has to because there are so many of them. So PLEASE spay and neuter your animals... I do!
