TO MAKE LITTER
To make dumps: With an adult's help, preheat the oven to 350F. Using clean hans, mix together the dump ingredients in a large bowl. Mold pieces of this mixture into various size/shape dumps.
Place so they don't touch each other in an ungreased baking pan. Use two if they don''t all fit. With an adult's help, bake the dumps for about 20 minutes or until they are all brown, firm and slightly crusty.
While the meat cooks, put all four litter ingredients into a large saucepan. Then, with an adult's help, heat on high until the water comes to a boil. Stir, turn heat to low and cover the pan. Simmer without lifting the cover for fourteen minutes.
With an adult's help, remove the saucepan from the stove and carefully (to avoid having your face melted away by the steam), lift off the cover. Break apart, or "fluff" the rice with a fork and set pan aside.
When dumps are done, carefully transfer them onto paper towels to drain.
Spoon the rice and dumps into the now empty baking pan, leaving some dumps partially uncovered, the way Kitty does when he/she is in a hurry. Serves 8-10 litterbox lovers. Use ppper scooper to serve.
