Halloween Decorating Meow Monday Style
If you have even one cat, you know how much they love to help with everything! My cats want to help me with folding laundry, homework, and decorating. I know it’s a little early for Halloween decorating but I totally love Halloween and couldn’t wait to get out the decorations. The first thing I did was plug in my strand of candy corn colored lights. Of course, the cats were very curious and more than happy to check them out and play with them.
Meet Sunny, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week
Sunny is a 6 year old male domestic shorthair mix who comes complete with extra toes! He’s a laid back, affectionate fellow who seems to be OK with other cats, dogs, and kids. He likes to play with string, have his cheeks scratched, and keep an eye on the world out the window. He’s been hanging out n one of our offices because he came in with a leg injury which is now on the mend. Ask to meet Sunny at our adoption desk. He’ll be very glad to meet you!
My Grandmother’s Yummy Pumpkin Bread Recipe
It’s September and you know what that means…. Pumpkin everything! One of my favorite pumpkin treats to make for my family is my grandmother’s pumpkin bread. It’s so delicious and the recipe makes 3 loaves so there is plenty to share or put a couple of loaves in the freezer for another day.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4 cups flour
3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 & 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice of ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1 cup oil
1 can pumpkin
2/3 cup cold water
Mix all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Make a well in the flour mixture. Add the oil, pumpkin, and water. Blend well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Pour into 3 well greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
This is one of our much loved family recipes and I hope you and your family enjoys it as much as we do!

Meet Foster, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!
Foster is a cute little guy with gorgeous markings! He’s only one year old but he’s been at Lollypop Farm twice through no fault of his own. Come meet him and (we hope) take him home!
We’ve had George for 3 years and couldn’t love him any more. He is J-Man’s best bud and has been since the day we brought him home.
Totally the cutest kitten ever!
I just love this picture of J-Man and George. They really are the best of friends. Just how it should be!
Meet Meeko, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week
Meeko is a 6 year old female domestic longhair mix who came to find a new home at Lollypop Farm because her owners moved and could not take her with them. She’s a lovely, if camera shy, girl who deserves a second chance.
What’s new Jezebel? Our old TV broke beyond repair so we had to get a new one. This meant an empty entertainment center and new boxes all over during the changes. If you have cats you know how clean spaces and boxes are as enticing as tuna fish.
Rosie couldn’t resist climbing inside the shelf to see what was going on.
Meet Queen, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!
Queen is a beautiful 3 year old female domestic shorthair mix with lime green eyes. She came from a home where there were too many pets and is hoping to find a new home of her own. She’s a quiet, mellow girl who deserves another chance. Come meet her at Lollypop Farm!
