Hello everyone! I hope that you’re all just fine this morning – I certainly am! 🙂 Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I’m doing so far.
When we first adopted the girls – we initially nicknamed Leila ‘G. I. Jane’, because she crept everywhere, keeping her belly low, body close to the wall. She honestly looked like she was a participant in ‘feline boot camp’. She is still slightly skittish, but we now call her ‘the Crunchy Marshmallow Fluff’ girl. She’s dropped the ‘feline boot camp’ persona, and gone into ‘feisty, take-no-nonsense’ mode. Although Leila acts tough around her sisters, if either Mareena or myself shows her any attention, she immediately throws herself against us and purrs.
Anyway, late on Sunday night, January 17th, I heard some slight rustling followed by a steady tearing of paper. Knowing how much Lollipop loves playing with loose papers, and worried that I may have forgotten to cover up the book that I was reading, I got up to check out the situation. Turning on the light, I noticed Leila sitting proudly on a ripped crossword puzzle book. I put it away more safely and went back to bed.
The next afternoon, Monday, January 18th, Leila somehow managed to get a hold of the newspaper – which was opened to the unfinished crossword puzzle – and proceeded to knead just the clues to the puzzle! I’m rather proud of myself that I was still able to solve a crossword clue, without the actual clue! I’m honestly not sure how I did it, but I figured it out anyway. LOL!
