Kin Food
Yogurt treats are pretty popular rodent treats; my own two ratties love them! So here’s two recipes!
For simple frozen yogurt bites, empty a container (or containers) of your favorite flavor yogurt into a ziptop plastic bag. Snip off just a tiny piece from the corner, and pipe dime-to-nickel sized drops onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in freezer and allow drops to freeze til solid, then transfer into and store in a large ziptop bag.
The above are Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Bites. The blogger individually skewers blueberries and dips them into greek yogurt, then drops them onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet, then freezes, then transfers them to a baggie or tupperware. I imagine you could use the same piping-bag method as the non-berry drops to make it go a little quicker. Raspberries would probably be pretty tasty, too!

I discovered a useful thing for insectivore-kin! If real grubs aren't your thing, I find the texture craving can be satisfied by wild rice and barley oats that have been soaked or boiled. The kind you make stew with. Would be curious to see if anyone else agrees!

im the rabbitkin that harasses you guys all the time (im sorry!!! this blog is open in a new tab 24/7) and wanted to give a tip to any other rodent or lagomorphs such as myself. dehydrated fruit treats always helps me satisfy my cravings. it's just something about the texture. you can also share them with your pets. my rabbit and i eat them together sometimes!! my favorite brand is sunseed's garden goodies!!

also (rabbit again,) do you know of any kin directories? i was thinking of starting a “kincyclopedia” to help beings find others of their type that they might get along with!!

Don’t be sorry! It’s awesome that you have a tab open with our blog. It means we’re doing something right if you wanna keep talking to us.

That’s actually a really good suggestion (I used to eat snacks with my guinea pig).

And if you start something like that I swear on my lantern I’ll love you forever. It would be great for everyone.

I didn't see anything in the tags that helped (part guinea pig 'kin), so I'm gonna ask even though this question feels weird. Do you have/know of any recipes that include or just taste grass-like? The cravings are all over the place right now!

  • Wheat grass is the first thing that comes to mind. Depending on your area, some smoothie shops or health food shops sell wheat grass juice, which has a very grass-like taste (of course) and requires no preparation on your part. It can cost a bit more than one might like to spend on grass juice though, if you’re not a health nut.
  • Lettuces, cabbages, and leafy greens of all sorts, when shredded, work fantastically as a grass substitute! Buy a few different varieties if you can afford to and experiment with the tastes and textures of them. 
  • Sprouts like alfalfa or broccoli sprouts, available in almost all grocery stores (at least in my experience), very much resemble grass in taste and texture.
  • There are also sea grasses, and I think we even have a few recipes with them under the ‘sea vegetables’ tag.
  • And for dessert, there’s edible Easter grass!
  • PS, don’t forget about edible flowers!

If any of these ideas strike your fancy, I’d be happy to find related recipes to post for you! I hope this helps.

I was browsing your rabbitkin tag and noticed a few things, so as a tip from a rabbitkin and a bunny mom, corn and beans are generally big no nos! Corn is bunny junk food. Beans can cause serious gas which in turn can cause G.I. stasis ( which can end in death.)

Mabon Holiday Cider

fuckyeahitchywitch:

Mabon is the Witch’s Thanksgiving, a time to
appreciate and give thanks to the Goddess for
her bounty and to share in the joys of the
harvest. Fall fruits, squash, gourds, pumpkins,
grains, nut breads, vegetables.

A magical Mabon beverage:… Hot apple cider !
Apple rules the heart, cider alone is a self-
love potion. By spicing it with cinnamon, ruled
by Jupiter and the Sun, we are in essence,
ingesting the sunlight.


~~Mabon Moon Cider

4 cups apple cider 1/2 tsp. whole cloves
4 cups grape juice additional cinnamon sticks
2 cinnamon sticks for cups, 6 inches long
1 tsp allspice
In a 4-quart saucepan, heat cider and grape
juice. Add cinnamon, allspice and cloves.
Bring just to boiling. Lower heat and simmer
for 5 minutes.

Serve with ladle from a cauldron. Makes 8 cups , enjoy . ;)

We headed out to the apple orchards today but got sidetracked “family” .
In previous years we have gotten our fill of apples , honeycomb “fresh” , and corn to help with our celebrations , ( we are blessed to live in Wisconsin where it is all abundant ).
Don’t forget the wine sisters as it is a time of celebration and indulgence.
If you have a favorite Mabon recipe , please share , we haven’t decided on our feast yet .

~Blessings
