A few weeks ago, I posted on losing my darling cat, Lyra. Lyra was with me for 15 years, longer than my husband and my kids. I still keep thinking I see him everywhere, and then I remember. But every day is easier and easier. And we’re looking forward to adopting a new kitten that needs a home, even though Lyra was the strangest, coolest, most awesome cat and he could never be replaced. You can see one of these uber-simple kitty cat marshmallows in that post. So getting back into the swing of things, I’m going to show you how to make them. Unless you could figure it out from the picture, in which case, go you smarty pants.

how to make cat marshmallows
you will need:*
edible writers (black and pink)
lollipop sticks or straws
*Find the sticks or straws in the craft store. Find lots of information on where to find edible writers HERE.
what to do: With the scissors, cut two diagonally snips in the center and either pull off the chunk of marshmallow between the snips or get in there with the scissors and cut it off, leaving the cat “ears.” With the markers, draw a pink dot for the nose and draw two black dots and six lines for the eyes and whiskers. Skewer with a lollipop stick or straw. TIP: If the scissors get sticky, rub a bit of vegetable shortening on the blades.

So simple yet so cute!
Thank you Beth!
Lyra would be so happy to know that you’re going to give another kitty an opportunity to live the good life with you and your family and to try and “keep you in line” 🙂 There is no way to replace a furry member of the family who was with you for 16 years, but I know a new kitty will immediately try and bring a smile to your face and win you over. Let it happen. Kitties bring a lot of joy to one’s life.

Those are adorable! A great food craft for kids. I’m sorry about the loss of your cat. I know how hard that is. We lost our little guy about a month ago and we keep calling our new adopted shelter cat by his name! I’m sorry for your loss-
