Stacked Tortie Girls

Cookie and Kelly stacked again

It seems Cookie is the perpetrator of the stackable torties in this house; the last photo of the two of them on my lap had Cookie on top, and the two of them in approximately the same position. All I do is change my clothes—from summery sun dress to cool-weather long-sleeve top and denim skirt. In this case, however, Cookie has incapacitated my right hand. Good thing I use the mouse with my left hand.

Comfy girls.

Though it looks like Kelly is losing out here by sliding farther down my lap. She realized this and readjusted, which in Kelly’s rule book necessitates a full bath. She was sleepy, however, and tortie fur is tortie fur—she and Cookie ended up vigorously bathing each other for about a minute, then drifting back to sleep.

The only thing I got done was to take a lot of shaky photos. My arms aren’t long enough for these.

      Chris, Kelly’s not so thrilled, but Cookie is the queen so it works for a while. Not bad for Kelly, who’s always been a little timid about being touched by anyone.

    There is nothing like a Tortie stack to incapacitate!! Under the circumstances, the pics are brilliant 🙂

      They take up quite a bit of volume here on my little lap, and my keyboard doesn’t balance so well on them.

      Ingrid, I hope Allegra doesn’t wait until she’s a teenager like Kelly did! I wish the photos were more clear too because they are sweet, sweet memories.
