Baby Stella is about a 1 1/2 years old now. It is hard to believe what a big beautiful girl she has become. Stella is extremely shy (now that couldn’t be because she is so overshadowed by her big brother, Nine, could it?) and likes to stick to the outer rooms. She still prefers to eat her meals alone in the cat room and not in the kitchen with everyone else (so we let her). Stella comes down to the bedroom and plays with the others for a little while in the evening. She especially likes to hide in my bathroom with all the plants that are in the big tub wintering over. I do think that she will come out more and more over time. It is hard being the youngest of 5 animals. I should know, I was the youngest of 3. Have a great day!
