Two Naughty Torties Eating Cheesecake Filling

Cookie’s at it in the kitchen again!

I turn my back for a few seconds and what happens? Cookie leads Kelly astray and both of them taste-test the cheesecake filling.

I wouldn’t put this past Cookie, but she had been sleeping upstairs. I noticed she came in the kitchen, blinking sleepily, as I was mixing, but didn’t see her up on the table. Still I wouldn’t put it past her to be awakened by the smell the softening cream cheese and follow it down the stairs.

Kelly, however, is an extremely good girl, and it would simply never occur to her to taste the cheesecake filling unless Cookie had set a bad example.

And the first thing I do is take a photo. They didn’t get the chance to eat much. I use an “island” cabinet in the middle of the kitchen for preparing food and feeding senior kitties, and it’s difficult for anyone to get to without my seeing, but I thought the coast was clear. Never underestimate a determined tortie.
