She has the cutest profile.
Melly has been extra affectionate the past few days, perhaps because she is missing my sister and is looking for more attention. Yesterday morning, I woke up to find myself nose-to-nose with Melly, who was sleeping above my head with her chin resting on my pillow a couple of inches from my face. She does normally sleep with me, but usually stays off to the side a bit or goes down by my feet.
Although Melly usually puts up with all my belly snorgles and cuddles, she generally prefers to keep to herself. She likes to be near the humans and will sometimes sit on an available lap and demand chin scritches, but she is usually restrained in her affections (unlike Scarlett, who wants to be in almost constant physical contact with me). At any rate, when Melly decides to come and head-butt me and nuzzle, purring, into the crook of my elbow, it's kind of a big deal. It feels pretty darn special, too.
