Snickerdoodle Ice Cream by

Do you know how to get a urine sample from a cat?

I do. True story. 

One of our older cats was recently diagnosed with kidney disease after we took him to the vet for acting weird (a manageable condition, thank goodness!). But, the vet wanted a urine sample to run some more tests.

I thought, “Oh, I can just bring in a sample from the litter box.”

Nope, no beuno. It had to be a clean urine sample. I asked, “How do I…?”

She hands me a teeny tiny plastic cup with a lid on it and a dropper. How considered how odd my life was in that moment.

Luckily, it is easier than it sounds (a plastic bag over litter will trick the kitty into going there). And, now you know. Don’t you feel enlightened?

And now for something completely different – ice cream!

I may be anxious for fall to get here, but I’m not giving up on simple, scrumptious ice cream recipes. Ice cream by the fireplace sounds just as good to me as ice cream in the sweltering heat! This easy recipe features a boatload of cinnamon and chunks of snickerdoodle cookie dough. You can’t go wrong!
