The comb does seem to work. Can’t say it’s the best $53 I’ve spent, but it does seem to be effective. Certainly helps that Spice will lay there all night long. Last night was difficult for her because once she was down and comfy, Lola decided she was vulnerable and proceeded to see if she could instigate something. Spice later got her revenge.
Lola was standing in the doorway to the bathroom, looking in, and Spice gently pulled on her tail, trying to get a reaction. She kept pulling and pulling until I saw Lola move ever so slowly across the threshold. Spice got her reaction then.
On baking news, I made the Peppermint Cookies last night. There is 3/4 cup of cocoa powder to only 1 3/4 cups regular flour, so they weren’t necessarily sweet, even though there was 1 1/2 cups sugar (brown and white). The white chocolate chips added sweetness, but the crushed candy canes added an interesting flavor. Taste wise, they seem to be more sophisticated than our traditional cookies – perhaps because the peppermint doesn’t hit you right away. Anyway, they are good. Also made the Aunt Nottie’s Peanut Butter Cup cookies which went over extremely well with Tom.
