That ominous silence.
I went to investigate WHY Leora was being so quiet. My quest led me to the upstairs hallway bathroom.
There was the kitty, nibbling at soggy cat food floating on the bathroom. Apparently, Leora had taken it upon herself to feed and water the cat.
We keep the cat food in an old Goldfish crackers box.
While I went to grab paper towels, Leora committed an acrobatic act. Actually, she was just trying to brush her teeth. Determined little hygienic-conscious girl!
