She's unusually intelligent and affectionate, and still very small. When she meets new people, she'll stand up to help them pick her up, and usually give them a little kiss on the mouth (for catless readers, this is oddball behavior for a cat). She likes to ride in cars and explore outside, and will willingly climb into her harness. Once I took her with me to pick up a table I had ordered, and she stood patiently on the counter at customer service while we waiting, watching passersby as they double-took at her presence. Last time I picked her up from having her teeth cleaned, the vet said, "How did you get her to be so sweet?" I didn't do it, she's just a sweetie.
I'm using her as an armrest as I type this. She's curled up and squeezing her face with her paw. She's so cute, I can't stand it.

Tortoise yesterday! She's groggy and contented after Cyrus gave her a tongue bath that went on for at least fifteen minutes. Happy Cat Day!
