Lone caregiver: looking to talk about cats, books, music, food, more..
I'm a member with the caregivers but would like to hopefully find a couple of people to talk to about cats, books, music, food – most everything under the sun. Thanks🙏

@bigmaya This is a lovely idea. I am not currently a caregiver but I was for a few years for my father.
I grew up with cats and dogs. My mother loved animals and often brought in stray dogs and cats to our home. For many years I lived in rentals where dogs and cats were not allowed. About 30 years ago I realized I could now adopt so I brought one cat, then another, and then another. Those three cats are no longer with me but I have placed their framed photos around the house along with the dogs who are no longer with me.
I have a soft place for cats and right now we have two senior cats who are in very good health. I named one of them, Minnie the Moocher (Moochie or Mooch, for short). When we were trying to come up with a name this came to me one day when she was on the chair next to me while I was eating. She kept swiping at my hand when I had food and I said “You are such a moocher”. There! That’s the name. She came to us as a foster from our local shelter. You know the rest. She never left and is still here trying to get her own way. Moochie is a tortoiseshell and typifies the term “tortitude”.
Let’s talk cream cheese any good cookie recipe’s☺️I made a good cream cheese crust and cheesecake but would love a good cookie one.
Can't help with a cheese cookie recipe but l sure do love cheesecake!!! I used to make a delicious one ages ago… 😋 😋😋
Yeah, them felines… used to have just one, once… but we stopped counting long ago. Our first was Moish, a 16 pounds heavy, spoiled rotten and adorable shelter cat. Now we are owned by some 27, the strays coming over for a meal, drink and rest in the garden, not included. As the saying goes, you're a nobody until you've been ignored by a cat😼
mmm don't have a cream cheese cookie recipes but I have put two cookies together using mixed cream cheese and icing sugar… dont sandwich together too long before eating as make cookies too soft; daughter has recipe for inside out carrot cake cookies but really they turn out to be more like mini cakes but will look for recipe, always a hit! And i stumbled across recipe on internet where you slice banana bread and before serving put 2 thinner slices together with cream cheese mixed again with icing sugar .. you would think they would not taste ok but now we dont want our banana bread without "buttering" a slice with the cream cheese mix 🙂
Hmmmmmm yum Thanxxxx
Have you seen the section here on Mayo called "How about a laugh"? Reading the posts there really cheers me up!
Maybe one of the volunteers can explain how to navigate to find it. I can't! I'm not great at this tech stuff.
You have a good day now 🙂
Thanks to all huggers and likers🙏💐😸
Thank you annewoodmayo
I've seen it🙏
Haha! I love that! “You’re a nobody until you’ve been ignored by a cat.”
While I grew up with a longtime dog, my husband and I opted for cats almost our whole married life (almost 38 years now.) Ironically, we ended up with3 sets of cats where they were true brother and sister, and the male was always orange, and the female was always black, with a little white. We named one of the males “Edward” and all he needed was to eat, and sit upright in a chair! Haha 😂. He passed away by his food bowl.
