Melly's New Friend
This is my boyfriend, Geoff, who had only just met Melly when I took this picture. It took her about 2 seconds to start purring after he picked her up: clearly, she's made a new friend. And he, despite professing to be a non-cat person, has fallen under her spell.
We confined Scarlett to the bedroom (not much of a confinement for her since she loves to look out the window there), and let Melly out to explore for a while. Of course, she found every one of Scarlett's toys, and had to try them all. She couldn't make up her mind which she liked best, so she'd bat one around, then carry it in her mouth over to the next toy, and repeat the process. I don't have a single non-blurry picture of this since she never stopped wiggling, but here you can see her trotting happily with a fuzzy jingle ball in her mouth.
Edit: I just saw Tanya's comment on the previous post containing her advice about letting Melly out... oops. Well, Scarlett sniffed around a bit and obviously noticed that the interloper had touched her stuff, but she didn't seem to mind much. Tomorrow, I'll put Scarlett in the bathroom when I let Melly out and see how that goes (another fun episode of musical rooms will be involved so they don't come face to face!).
