Oh, Scarlett

My sister made whole wheat and oat chocolate chip cookies the other day, and we were enjoying them with glasses of milk when Scarlett hopped up onto my sister's lap. Scarlett still hasn't really accepted my sister, so it's a big deal when Scarlett shows affection. Sis froze when Scarlett jumped up, not wanting to startle the kitty, but it soon became apparent that Scarlett was not after affection: she was after the cookie.


Scarlett started tentatively biting at the cookie, just touching it with her teeth but not eating any.



Scarlett spent so much time just checking out the cookie that we didn't think she'd actually do anything with it, but suddenly, she took a huge bite and ran off with it!


(Don't worry, we'd established early on that there wasn't any chocolate in that bit of cookie.)
