After a bit of time there, we headed back, with a stop to explore a hedge, then sniff at a leaf that blew into her.
And finally playing in the landscaping around her home.
Finally back inside, I dropped her off in her room. Walking into the living room, I found Scarlett on her tower and walked right up and gave her a good bit of head scratching which she accepted happily, despite the fact that my hand must have still smelt of Melly.
(Stimulating video, eh? A disembodied hand scratching a cat)
A few minutes later, Melly, who'd immediately beelined for her food when I put her back in her room, decided she wasn't happy about being confined again and started mewling like crazy. Who chose to investigate?
