This morning I had some leftover bacon grease and decided to doctor it up for cats. I added 1 loaf of old white bread (crusts removed), a generous amount of garlic powder and several cups of instant potato flakes. Since oil (grease) and water do not mix, I thought this might stay on a hook pretty well. Perhaps there was too much grease since it kept falling apart. I made little bait balls out of my concoction and placed each one inside another piece of white bread that I molded around each ball. Hopefully this will keep it all together. Any other suggestions?
