- Gemma Howarth ordered a special custom cake for his son’s ninth birthday.
- The cake was left overnight unattended, with its lid firmly on.
- The next morning, the family was surprised that half of the frosting was already eaten. And there was only one culprit: their adorably playful kitten, Bruce!
Gemma Howarth’s son’s ninth birthday was approaching, so she thought of having a very special custom cake for him.
It was the first professional customized cake they had ever ordered, so everyone was so thrilled about it, including the family’s kitten, Bruce, who was the newest addition to the family’s cats: Bree and Tess.
“[He’s] boisterous and hyper, but he still loves a good cuddle,” Gemma told The Dodo.
Overnight, the cake was left unattended, but the lid was firmly on. The next morning, everyone was shocked that someone already had his first taste of the cake, even before the celebration took place!
Half of the frosting was eaten, but the lid wasn’t moved at all. This and some other clues led the investigation straight to Bruce.
As the cake was eaten without having to move the lid, it was clear that the culprit was small enough to fit in — in which there was only one suspect: Bruce. Besides this, “his bright blue poop was the biggest hint.”
“We had only left it overnight with the lid as our girls had never even knocked anything over, nevermind eaten anything they shouldn’t,” Gemma said. “We knew straight away it was Bruce because of this…”
Gemma was so upset initially, but when his son found it hilarious, she couldn’t help but to laugh at it as well. The fur mom just took one important lesson from what happened: they will be more thorough in securing cakes and other treats next time.
The family had Bruce checked up by a vet, as he ate a cake’s worth of frosting. Fortunately, the kitten was fine.
Though the cake wasn’t in its perfect state, the family was able to salvage it and everyone enjoyed the celebration.
“In the end we just carved out enough that we were happy nobody would be poorly, then filled it with buttercream and crushed chocolate cake for mud,” Gemma said.
