All about Niamh

My Niamh is a cautious kitty who comes off as shy. In truth, she's loving, playful, and evilly sneaksome when not openly hostile. She is quick to hiss and usually wants nothing to do with anyone but me. Happily, this is beginning to change. She's been allowing Shog to touch her, sharing the bed with Albus, and increasingly, she is willing to endure being in close proximity to the other cats. She will not, however, endure the touching of fur as do Zelda and Merva:

Zelda and Merva Sharing a Lap

Niamh prefers to keep a decent distance from the other cats:

Niamh and Zelda, “Sharing” a Lap

Especially Merva:

Niamh, Annoyed (by the very existence of Merva)

But if it's cold enough, she will deign to share a chair:

Three cats in a lap! (No one’s really happy about it. :P)

It's easy to tell how she feels about her personal space:

All your personal space are belong to Niamh

The happiest of all Niamhs is a Niamh without other cats:

The happiest of all Niamhs is a Niamh without other cats

And it's so good to see her feeling secure enough to enjoy herself out in the open!

In other news, it is astonishingly beautiful here, today, and I've spent much of it outside. Much of it, but not enough—away to meet friends at the coffee house, I go, and then it's dog park, ho!
