In Which The Four-Year-Old Plans the Cat’s Thanksgiving

The Four-Year-Old's Thanksgiving Prep List

After watching me work through one Thanksgiving prep list after another this week, The Four-Year-Old decided to write a Thanksgiving prep list of her own.

Her list reads “Cat” (meaning cat tuna), “Cosequin” (the arthritis medicine we give our cats), and “catnip.”

Food, medicine, fun. Yep. I think that about covers it.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
