WHAT TO DO WITH LEFTOVER PEEPS


Even though Easter is over, many households are still brimming with leftover Easter detritus such as colored eggs, headless chocolate bunnies, and perhaps the most nauseating of all Easter traditions… Peeps. To us cats, these gooey marshmallow creations are good for only one thing after Easter, and that’s for use as batting around material.

Here’s a good thing to do with leftover Peeps: Carry them into the kitchen and bat them around until they end up under the refrigerator. Because most humans rarely clean under the refrigerator, the Peeps will become petrified and covered with dirt and dust. Then, around July or so, when their presence is revealed by a trail of ants, you can sit back and watch the fun as your human cleans up the deplorable mess. Yes, Peeps truly are the holiday tradition that keeps on giving!

That sounds like a very fun game! I will try it out.

Hi Daisy,
Yes, it is extremely fun. Just make sure you don't get any marshmallow stuck on your fur!

Your Friend,

Mum does not like Peeps and does not buy them. So no mess under the big cold box for me.

Quasi said...

Hi Derby,
Sorry to hear you're deprived of Peeps, although I must concur with your mum... I find them disgusting myself!

Your Friend,
Quasi

Here's one other thing to never do with Peeps: don't make Rice Krispie squares with them. They are extremely gluey and you will never, ever get the stuff out of your fur! Seriously, melted Peeps are weapons of mass destruction.

How do I block this content from my cat, Ruby? She's not old enough for adult games. Please advise.

Quasi said...

Hi Tony,
What I would suggest you do is dress your peeps in very tiny, yet modest clothing... that way, Ruby can bat them around without any possibility of seeing their little Peep private parts.

Your Friend,
Quasi

Dear Quasi...

Scooter wishes me to inform you that you are a cat genius. Peeps as playthings. Who knew?? (Quasi knew...that's who knew.)

Meanwhile, we don't like Peeps at our house but I have promised to give Scooter a marshmallow next time we have them in the house. Sort of a psuedo-Peep.
