Lychee Lime-aid and Kitties?
4 limes (juiced)
1 cup of lychee berries (peeled and pitted)
1 cup of water
2/3 cup of sugar
After peeling the lychee berries and juicing the limes, add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. This may take several minutes to break the berries down. Chill for 30 minutes.
Lychee berries are a lot of fun. Now that they are in season, I grabbed a small bag at the Asian farmers market. I had the idea of making a lime-aid when I noted the limes were 10 for $0.99. It all came together in the kitchen a few hours later.
If you have never used lychee berries, they can be a bit filmy so make sure you rinse them well after you peel them. Also, this drink is very rich, if you want it a bit less tart, add more water.
Early in the day, Ashley and I took a road trip to Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe. We browsed around and I ended up getting some match meats. I have never used them so we will see how it goes.
Once we got back to my house, I began making the lychee lime-aid and Ashley went to the front yard. I went to see what she was up to and saw this little bugger and it's 3 sibling on my front porch!
It seems that they may have been living under my back deck or even in my crawl space. They look like they around about 5 weeks old. I am not sure if they are strays, feral, or just run away domestics. As much as I like cats and miss Tato, I do not really want 4 kitten to live with me. I am much more of an old cat guy. These kids sure were cute though!
I am not sure what to do. I have been putting food out for them because it looks like their mom is gone. I may end up taking them to a shelter. They are very skidish and run when i get close to them. I do not really want to force them into domestication, I am not sure what to do.
