    Pre-heat oven 450F.. In a medium size bowl, mix flour,salt, baking soda, and baking powder together. Add shortening, and use a pastry cutter,unill a crumbly mixture like oatmeal is produced. Add the buttermilk to th center of the flour mixture. Mix with a spoon until the dough is slightly lumpy, and looks shaggy. Then with your hands, knead the dough in the bowl 3-4 times. It helps if you flour your hands, a little.

    To make cat head bisquits (the size of a cats head) pinch off a ball of dough 2-1/2 -3 inches, and pat with your hands into a thick bisquit. Put heads into a cast iron skillet (4) even a pie plate with any leftovers. Or all on a cookie sheet. etc. even a pie plate.. My skillet held only 4 2 went into a pie plate.
