Two things about Nightshade from yesterday. First, yesterday is the first time she ever saw snow! She was born this summer. She was rapt staring at it out the window. She looked like she wanted to pounce on those big fluffy white things and find out if they were good to eat. Are they moths? Are they small birds?
Second - she has become so vocal. She definitely shows her Siamese when she talks, there's a lot of "MOW!" "MRAAAAH!" "MEH!" Last night I kicked her out of my room because she was playing in such a way that made it impossible to sleep (first chewing papers, then batting a hairclip against the radiator repeatedly) and so she stood outside the door yelling for probably an hour.
Bonus Nightshade tidbit: She is really huge now. She's about half the size of Pretzel, instead of fitting on top of my arm.
