Mina is a changed girl

After Mina hit puberty and it passed, she completely changed from not wanting anything to do with me and playing non stop, to being more interested in me, following me everywhere, and playing less. She also used to poop a lot more due to nerves, where as now she tries to alert me before she goes and tries to jump somewhere else and poop rather than on me. I just need to pay more attention to her cues. I am learning those now, it is all happening so fast! Crazy how dramatic and quick the change was.

Thursday snuggles with Mina (she would have wiggled out of any sort of touching and became frantic if I tried this before, now she makes happy linnie grunts and peeps when I hold her):

Oh, how cute is that? I'm happy for you.
In most cases it's the other way round. Birds are snuggly when they are babies and become independent as adults.
But you have a snuggly adult linnie, that's gorgeous.
