Hallah!

Three cats make Challah bread (two parent cats with their kitten).

I titled it “Hallah!” instead of Challah so that when spoken, it sounds similar to “Holla!” When spelled “Hallah” it also references a piece of dough which is separated from the rest and put aside for a Kohen (priest) in the time of the Jewish Temple. In contemporary times it is often fed to birds or burnt in the oven. I like the idea of these “cats” making bread to give to their bird contemporaries (rather than killing or eating them).
