As an update to this thread, I thought I would post some updated photos of this “tortietude” that Boscibo spoke of. Boy howdy. She has exploded in fur.
Every morning, at roughly 6 am, I am awakened by loud purring in the ear, and kneading of my curly hair while she lays on the pillow.
When I am in the shower, she must be on the toilet lid or sitting on the bath mat. When I leave the room she must follow me.
And, as evidenced by this compilation my sister made, the two are getting along just fine.
