For a while I received food stamps. I thought it rather strange when I found that I could use food stamps to buy junk food such as candy bars, but could not use them to purchase "prepared" food such as fried chicken in the supermarket. It really surprised me, though, when I was housesitting for a friend and had to go to the store and purchase some food for his cat. I placed the cat food on the checkout stand along with the rest of my food, intending to pay for it with cash after the rest of the food was covered by food stamps. To my surprise, the entire order went through and was paid for by the fine folks of Oregon. After all, we can't let Fluffy go hungry!
