When Gimel was spayed earlier this year Galaxy took some time to get used to her cone. Once she came home from the operation the first couple of days Galaxy acted as if he’d never seen her before. He didn’t recognize her smell or the cone on her head and there was a lot of growling and hissing. She’d try to rub against him and he’d resist. Eventually she grew on him all over again and that’s when I snapped this Instagram picture.
Gimel is obsessed with craft pompoms. She growls if Galaxy comes near her while she has one (though he could care less about them) and runs around the house like she’s on catnip when she comes across one. This is a picture of her as a kitten, rescuing one from a decretive arch at the bottom of my desk. She squeezed under and I snapped a picture of her as she popped her head back out upon retrieval.
