Literally, all of my life I’ve had Siamese cats! When I was a baby, our Siamese cat, “Dickens” (short for Charles Dickens named by my mom), used to sleep in my crib with me! My Grandma always had Siamese cats, too.
I just love them! They’re highly intelligent cats, and loaded with personality! We currently have a “Snowshoe Siamese” that we were lucky to be chosen to adopt after I saw him on the news early one Saturday morning!
“Gilbert’s” sad and shocking story went nationwide. He had fallen from a 7-story building and suffered many horrific injuries such as a smashed and fractured pallet, both front legs broken, cracked ribs, and internal injuries. He had to be on a feeding tube for a long time until his little face and mouth healed. 1,000’s and 1,000’s of offers to adopt him came pouring in from all across the country and even a few from across the pond! I wrote them and filled out a form…..and they picked us to adopt him! I could NOT believe it!
*If this old video will still play, you can see his TV debut here!
Our lives have never been the same since! He’s our fur baby, and one of the smartest, funniest cats I’ve ever, ever had! Downright naughty at times, and I wouldn’t want him any other way!
His first time with Tom away from home. He sure missed his Papa!
And “Gilbert” today! He’s one spoiled, happy and healthy kitty!
While my hubby was away on a very long business trip, I made myself a few new cocktails! And I decided to come up with one dedicated to “Gilbert” and Siamese cats! I googled to see if there was a drink already by that name, and to my surprise, there wasn’t!
So I started with a bold, strong and sassy ingredient, , strong-brewed coffee! I set it in the fridge to chill while I thought what else should be added! I wanted to mimic the traditional colors of their coat, so I got out the White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Liqueurs! His coat has a nice mixture, so a little Kahlua went in there, too. A little cream, because cats love milk! And finally, a little Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur, because let’s face it, Siamese cats are a little nutty!
This turned out purrrrrrfect!! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!!) You can omit the cream if you’d like, and, you can adjust the liqueurs to your own liking, too! Because, just like people, each cat has their own personality! And we like it how we like it!
I hope you give this one a try! It really was delicious! Dessert in a glass!
Remember to adopt pets, know that they are for life and not a toy, and always have your pets spayed and neutered! Take care all, and have a beautiful day! ~Kelly

*Just a quick note! I might slow down a little on my blog, so don’t worry if you don’t get as many in your email! I will still be here, but just taking things a little slower for awhile. Four posts a week for two years kept me massively busy, and I have a few home projects that I’m going to be starting, so I won’t have quite as much time to do it all. But don’t worry! Lots of good things still coming your way!
