Sister Madeleine, sorry you had to undergo an operation, but it seems that gallbladders are not as essential as other appendages (organs?), so that's good. Hope you repair quickly!
> So, about Athena. She lives in the front garden (jungle?) from mid-May to mid-September. There seems to be plenty to eat, but since she spends her winters indoors, she has developed a taste for the easy life. Toward the end of last summer, she came and scratched at the door three or four times. This summer, she has made it a habit, like every two or three days. If she scratches in the morning, she heads for her indoor feeding area to get some Romaine. I leave the nearby sliding door ajar, and she generally returns to the garden after eating. If she shows up in the late afternoon, she opts for one of her bedrooms (either under a bookshelf or under the computer stand at my desk). Then the next morning I send her packing.
> On September 7th, through a window I happened to notice that Athena was headed for the door. I grabbed my pocket camera and went out the side door to to record the event. The camera does not have much of a zoom, and I did not want to get so close that I would unwittingly distract her. In hindsight, I wish I had swept the front patio (stuff blows in from the garden)!
> There were some technical issues, but I fixed them today. This is hardly a fast-paced action flick, but blessedly, it only lasts a minute and a half.
