    Yes the both of them have to be in cahoots on this. Have you ever noticed how a cat never gets into a bad recipe, only the best ones? I do have an experience for a short term remedy; make more cookies. Scenario: I bring them (peanut butter cookies, my favorite) out of the hot oven on the cookie sheet and leave the room for thirty seconds. You will hear one mournful “meow oww owww” and then the thump of four little paws and one fat body on the floor. Mrs. Cat will be over in the corner of the kitchen,licking her nose,with that “why didn’t you tell me they were hot look.” Ah Mrs. Cat remember you and I discussed the counter as my area and you have the entire floor. Peace agreements are so fragile on the farm!

    Clover smelled the ginger bread cake all the way outside and decided it smelled so good she needed to have some. So she got the cat to give it a lick so that you will bring it outside to Clover. lol.

    My cat and dog pull little stunts like that. I have caught them. If we happen to be eating in the living room in front of the tv. Depending on what dinner is. But if an extra burger is left on the stove, stake, chicken. Lunch meat is a biggie. The cat has been known to quietly hop up on the counter and quietly push off the said cut of meat onto the floor. He leaves himself a little piece on the counter or stove for him self. So both him and the dog can get a treat. I caught them in the act one day. Needless to say we are more careful of what is left out. The cat is told he is not to be on the counters at all. The dog is told not to get the cat to hop up on the counter to investage what is good to eat up there.

    I am sure they work out the details while we are away out of the house on how to steel stuff off the counters. :devil2:

    I bet there was an exchange of catnip.

  5. 6-25

    :o Hmmm, probly didn’t take much….just a little catnip, or a promise from Clover to kick the milk bucket so the kitty can get some fresh goat’s milk! :lol:

    Your animals are forming a conspiracy against you. Keep your eyes open! :pirate:

    Ha! I have a beagle and she will stand at the base of the kitchen cabinets while the cat knocks things off to her. I’m not joking. They’re appropriately named Lucy and Ethel.

    Your post are eductional…who knew goats liked gingerbread?

  9. 6-25

    To answer my own question…the cats knew they liked gingerbread.

  10. 6-25

    :sheepjump: happy goats are gingerbread fed goats

    That is a tragedy! I have to tell you, that gingerbread was fantastic! I had some of it for “brunch” with homemade vanilla ice cream that was still sort of goopy because I could NOT stand to wait another second. Himself and I had some for dessert last night, and then I wrapped the rest for the freezer just to keep temptation out of my way. The frozen piece I had at 4 this morning microwaved just fine. Good grief!

    I look at our dogs and think -Wow!Oh, for a dog’s life! But, I’ve decided your goats have it even better…gingerbread! LOL

  13. 6-25

    What ever she paid, I would have paid more!!!

  14. 6-25

    :lol: :lol: :lol: Clover in one smart animal!

  15. 6-25

    Awww, a little bit of kitty lick wouldn’t have stopped me from eating the rest of the gingerbread…Clover would have to come up with something better than THAT with me :lol:

  16. 6-25

    I told you you have some mafia type dealing’s going on Clover the head of the clan.

  17. 6-25

    Your goats are saying, “Omigosh, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.”

  18. 6-25

    Don’t you know that it is the animals that run the farm? Humans are just there to be manipulated into feeding them what they want!

  19. 6-25

    Scrape the top and disguise with cream cheese icing. Sorry, goats!

  20. 6-25

    It’s one giant conspiracy…just surrender and give them all your baked goods, LOL!

  21. 6-25

    :eating: Lol……HOW FUNNY!!!!

  22. 6-25

    Sounds like they’re in cahoots for sure.
    If I come and lick the gingerbread will you give it to me. Or does it go to Clover anyway? Just asking….. :dancingmonster:

  23. 6-25

    Actually I think Mean Rooster sweet talked the cat..then the cat licked the gingerbread so that mean Rooster could get you outside with your hands full!
    Hes a tricky bird!

  24. 6-25

    Clover certainly has a sweet tooth!

  25. 6-25

    Emma (my cat) just knocks things on the floor with her paw if she wants them on “her” territory. Doesn’t matter that she invades the table, counter, etc. to reach the cup of liquid or the solid food!!! :eating:

  26. 6-25

    Oh that is too funny! The gingerbread IS the payment! Lol!

  27. 6-25

    Our cat ate the center out of three pumpkin pies one Thanksgiving. We had fourteen guests for Thanksgiving dinner – and served everyone large slices of pumpkin pie generously heaped with fresh whipping cream – whether they wanted it on not! Our guests raved about desert – my friend was known for his pies. Keeping a perfectly straight face while serving said pie is absolutely imperative to the enjoyment of the pie. That and just taking the compliments and keep one’s mouth shut! To this day none of our guests have ever been told.

    I was involved in a dinner theater once at a rural campground. The dessert was fresh-baked gingerbread topped with whipped cream. All the theater people were standing around in back of the hall where the dinner theater was about to commence when a lovely-smelling pan of gingerbread emerged from the kitchen and was placed on the picnic table we were all leaning on to cool in the chilly evening air. As we continued talking, nobody noticed one of the camp’s cats who was looking for a warm place to rest her bones for the night. You guessed it…she jumped into the center of the towel-covered confection and began to knit her paws and make her bed. We all turned and yelled at the same time and the disgruntled creature retreated. The camp owner sadly examined her pan of rather squished gingerbread underneath the towel, proceeded to cut it into pieces, cover the dents with whipped cream and load it onto serving trays! SO FUNNY!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
