The Princess and I have developed a shorthand way of communicating, since we’ve lived together so long. Sometimes I will be thinking of something to say and it’ll come out of her mouth instead of mine. It’s weird.

Blondie has only been here a day and she’s already synced with us. It must be a family thing. She notices what I notice, she says what her sister thinks. It’s like a constant three-way conversation.

Weird, but nice. Blondie lives such a different life so far away, but she’s so much a part of us. I am comforted by our connection.
