Mia comes out every morning now for petting while I have my breakfast. Sometimes I see her in the evening as well, but she does not come around to the front of the couch, or jump up on it. She does not come into the bedroom, either, in spite of being invited there, even when Sienne is outside for the night.
There she is, rolling around on the carpet.
Sienne is not too sure about any of this. Sienne was perfectly happy to be Top Cat while the others hid in the shadows in the library. Now this invader is coming out in broad daylight and drinking the catwater and getting petting just as if she had a right to. Well! But she is no longer growling loudly, she just looks suspiciously and indignently on.
