Amber is a little miffed still. Here she is in a bowl straight from the kiln, Hot and alert. The first week was a hissing howling territory dance and Amber of course won the high ground hence the table. Amber was so vocal after Commet's death that we thought she might be lonely. Weren't we wrong!
Brooke arrival soon ended all that vocalization.
A month on they are doing well. Not exactly best buddies but getting used to each other. Brooke eats everything , Amber is still fussy and both now keep me company in the Clay Studio.
