Here's Sally O'Malley from when her was a baby kitten. She's still a cutie pie. BUT ... get this ... Miss-Stand-Offish has changed quite a bit! We attribute it to three factors --
1. The disappearance of her obsessive-compulsive boyfriend (the missing M.G. cat)
2. The appearance of two non-chalant rascals known as Lewis and Sterling, who really don't care if she is in the room with them or not ... it is amazing how much she wants to be seen when the guys don't care!
3. Move to a new house!
In fact, I came home sick from work on Thursday afternoon and collapsed in a heap on the bed for a snooze. I knew a kitty jumped on the bed and was demanding attention (the "yes-you-will-pet-me-head-under-the-hand" maneuver) ... I assumed it was Sterling, but he usually purrs really loud. Then I felt the collar. Sally is the only kitty in the house wearing a collar and tag. OMG! New ground has been broken! She approached ME for attention. Will wonders never cease~~!!! Then, more amazingly, she cruised by my lap on the sofa later in the evening!
Maybe Miss Sally is developing a personality apart from her icy prom queen persona!
