Not quite sure why I'm posting this, but here it is. This has become by far Olive's favorite spot in the house, especially in the mornings.
I have to say, despite my well documented reservations, she's been a terrific addition to our home and family. Allergy issues related to her arrival have been non-existent, a fact that was confirmed about a week ago when seasonal allergies (and their resulting misery) kicked in with a vengeance. Nothing like that from our little ball of Siberian fur.
Another thing I've been wanting to post, for no particular reason, is the curious way Olive drinks. She does occasionally take a conventional sip, but seems to prefer dipping a paw into her little bowl and then "drinking" the water off of her appendage. Either approach is fine with us, except when she leans up on the bowl to get a better angle and spills its contents all over the floor.
Here's a little visual progression of her interesting hydration process.
