I have a long list of cats in fiction that I love, so although I've made homemade cat treats in the past and have been toying with creating a new recipe, I decided to grab onto one of my fiction favorites today—the trouble-making duo of Si and Am from Lady and the Tramp.
These may be the first two "movie cats" to make a lasting impression on me. They may be the biggest trouble-makers ever and get poor, sweet Lady in trouble, but as a cat-lover, I can't help but laugh at their antics and sing their catchy (and slightly offensive if you really think about it) "theme song".

Plenty of milk for you and also some for me.
Pulling inspiration from this scene, I toyed with making a small bird or maybe some fish, but wound up choosing their quest to get milk as my starting point. What better way to honor Si and Am than by making a twist on Thai Pearl Milk Tea that has the color palette of these mischievous Siamese kitty cats. You know, because milk and because Thai (Thailand was formerly known as Siam).
If you like the sound of this, you might also like the different, but similar (and equally addictive) Thai Iced Coffee. And if you're a fan of the movie, I also have a Lady and the Tramp inspired Chop Suey recipe for you to check out!
