Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookie does enjoy her namesake food, as she shows here with a batch of fresh chocolate chip cookies, still warm from the oven.

I forget these things about her—who would think a cat would like cookies?! Turn my back on her and she’s tasting each one to choose the one she’s going to swipe.

Cookie chose her name from a list of babble from me. When  my neighbor brought her to me I called her “Chocolate” because a tortie at that age really looks mostly brown, and she did have a sweet personality. Because she was small, I called her “Chocolate Chip”.

And what is the next likely iteration of that? One evening while calling her out from under the bed so that I could put her in the spare cat room for the night, I called, “Chocolate! Chocolate Chip! Chocolate Chip Cookie! Cookie! Cookie! come here!”

She immediately came out from under the bed with a very surprised look on her face. “How did you know my name?” It has stayed with her for 18 years, though she has plenty of other names too.

And just for the record, “Cookie” is her everyday name. Her show name is “Semi-sweet Butterscotch Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough”. You know how it is with these royal names.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

  • Cookie and her “sweet tooth” really touch my heart. My dog, Martha, loved chocolate chip cookies, too. When I lost her in 1995 she took a bag of cookies with her. I do hope she shared them with the other angel doggies!

    • A bag of cookies! I wonder if she kept a few back for when you get there.

  • Cookie, you have a great name and great taste. Our Mom’s favorite is chocolate chip cookies. They do look yummy, so we can’t blame you for wanting one. Not too much chocolate though but we know your Mom wouldnt’ let you do that.
    Take care.

    • No, I managed to stop her before she got to a chip! She just licked the tops of several, but I’ve shared food with her for years, intentionally or not. She went right for them though!


    those look so yum! she has good taste! i LOVE her show name!!

    • They were yum! I figure if I’m going to expend all the effort to bake from scratch, I’ve earned the right to a few extra calories. Cookie, on the other hand, doesn’t really need the ingredients, though her show name might suggest she’s really all made of sugar and spice and everything nice.
