Minkelina makes an appearance!
My sister Bea (Dreaming here on blip) has had Minkelina for 13 years. In all that time she has never let me anywhere near her, and often will hiss at me if Bea is away and I come to feed her.
So today was an amazing breakthrough. While Bea and I visited, Minkie came out and sat by Bea. She let me take lots of pictures and even sniffed my hand briefly. Made my day!
