Butternut, Queen of the Pillows, Avoider of Children. Known as Butternuttyboos--moniker squealed affectionately without reserve--resides mostly in the master bedroom amongst the blankets and pillows.
She's four years old, weighs nine pounds, and cannot resist pouncing on unexpected movement beneath a coverlet.
(As her personal photographer, I crawled around the bed and quietly snuck up the edge to capture this picture. She often gazes at me with a puzzled expression, but tolerates my odd behavior as I'm the one who feeds and brushes her.)
