Hello Nikolay and Svetlana,

I trust all is well with you. We are doing well. Thought of sharing a couple of Julie's pictures with you, taken in June.

She is doing fine.

- Thirty-three-ish inches long from tip of nose to tip of tail.

- She caught a mouse recently inside our house, but did not know how to kill it. She came to us with a proud look on her face, with the mouse. The mouse came running to Harsha, saying "save me". Harsha ran away screaming. We managed to distract Julie, catch the mouse in a trash can and throw it out. (We get one or two mice in the house every Fall. In Julie's defense, I did warn the mice around the house saying "If you come in, well: Surprise...!" Spring-mouse was a first. This Fall should prove to be interesting.)

- She greets us at the door when we come back from work.

- She comes to bed in the morning to say "good morning". Sometimes at 2:30 a.m., sometimes at 3:30 a.m., then followed by at 5:30 a.m. Lies on my chest and purrs, with her paws (claws sheathed of course) against my neck. I seem to be the primary target of affection (much to Harsha's chagrin)...

- Used to come and sleep between us in bed, but not anymore. Now prefers the basement. (Got to watch for them mice, I guess...)

- Plays fetch with toy mice, sometimes.

- Absolutely loves to go out in the yard. We have her on a harness and leash, with the wellbeing of chipmunks and squirrels at heart. (She stalks them anyway...)


We would love to drop by sometime...

Best regards,
