Cleopatra and I fell in love last night! :) She's a gorgeous, sweet, smart girl. I've renamed her Nixie (and she already answers to it). We've been on several walks around my apartment complex and she loves to cuddle in my lap. ! It was hard for her foster mom to let her go and it was obvious Nixie adores her. She waited by the door for half an hour after she left for her to come back, but thankfully settled in with me after that. I'm so grateful to DRoH for bringing Nixie into my life!
