Andy notices an object of interest in my hands.
The little rascal keeps pawing at the blanket on my lap. He becomes a real pest!
Kitty boys don’t like cinnamon candy, Andy! (No, but he really, really, really likes the crinkly wrapper. I have to be very careful to dispose of wrappers so Andy doesn’t try to eat them.)
Yeah, we know all about crinkly wrapper, Mr Andy!
He is so cute when he concentrated on something – so purposeful.
And how! When he has his kitty on, I see why I have kitty cats in my life!
I especially enjoy those moments when they have an in=elegant accident, say rolling off their sleeping perch, and they get that “I meant to do that” look on their face!
LOL I know what you mean!
Andy wants what you have…..he did this with his brother. Now its your turn.
LOL! How true! If not to his tastes, he still wants to determine that by his sense of smell.
Our cats love crinkly plastic too. We have to be diligent about keeping it away from them
Dougy was like Andy in this regard, too.
Maybe the scent of the candy is like catnip to him!
I wonder. He finds mint-flavored tea or mint candy interesting. Cinnamon is a strong scent like those.
I’d say it’s not good for the cat systems, not good for hoomans either! Kind of like trying to run a jet engine on petrol!
True! I have a sweet tooth that nags me when I go through the candy section at the grocery store. (There are things on the other side that are healthier, so I’m condemned to fight the sweet tooth’s nagging!) I try to avoid having sweets on hand since I would probably eat them all the time otherwise. Fortunately, I like fruit as an alternative to sweets!
Loved your astute comment “if you have the teeth for it”.
LOL! I’d have problems with that particular treat these days.
What a very Hallowe’eny-looking sweet! We don’t get anything like that in the U.K.
It’s a hard candy flavored with cinnamon oil – one of my favorites! Speaking of Hallowe’eny, this type of candy is melted, then an apple on a stick is dipped into the melted candy, forming a hard candy shell around the apple. It’s really good, if you have the teeth for it. Another variation is melting soft caramels and dipping apples on sticks into it, then dipping the caramel apple into chopped peanuts. Good but nothing compared with a simple apple eaten without the goop, eh?! These treats are typical around this holiday. There used to be a candy shop in my town that made these, and it was an institution anyone of a certain age remembers fondly. They also made homemade fudge and other goodies like hot, fresh buttered popcorn, the smell of which wafted out onto the street, sucking you into the store. LOL!
We have toffee apples – or rather, had them when I was a kid – but the coating was just pure caramelised sugar! I haven’t seen any for YEARS. I hope they’ll have some sort of artisanal revival somewhere?
English toffee is a favorite candy of mine! There is a candy (Heath bar) that is toffee covered with chocolate, but it seems the English toffee a great aunt and my grandmother (both Scottish immigrants) bought in a shop in Denver, Colorado that featured imported English goodies and things like English bikes, clothes, etc. as well, and feed to us children in the far past was somehow different if the same. Maybe the chocolate coating was Cadbury’s instead of Hershey’s. There is that difference between European and American milk chocolate….
If only we could take the best of the old days, and bring it along with the best of the new! 🙂
Cwap!! You’re making me hungry!
The is tasty, of course!
I wish I could get cinnamon candy in Australia.
It’s hard to believe these isn’t more universal. If you’d like, I could post you some. Let me know!
