Thursday January 12, 2012 - Welcome Niya!

Today was all about hopefully getting to see the new female Snow Leopard!  She was out of quarantine a few days ago and today was her second day out in the yard :)  First few rounds about the cats, she wasn't out, but got lucky on the last round and saw the gate open.  No sign of her at first, but I could sure hear her!  She was vocalizing to Rigel while both were in their bedrooms.  After about 20 minutes of this she came out!  

Welcome Niya!
She seemed to like this tree 
and went to it for a scratch a few times.  
The first time she tilted her head back in my direction 
and upside down smiled :)

She was intrigued with the fencing above.  
Maybe birds or leaves.

Pretty little thing :)

I loved this.  You can't see it, 
but she is on a bed of hay that Rigel had been on previously!  
This is a great sign for their future :)

Angelo was out having a walk about in the sun :)

Miss Thang Leanne was grooming near the window

I like this one with a lick of under fluff :)

and of course some cute tongue!
