Baby Girl, half-sister of Little Bit, is one of the more unusual cats in the Magoo Room. She has autistic-type tendencies and spins in a tight circle when she is stressed in any way. bad or good—like when her favorite canned food is served. As she walks her head rotates from side to side with her chin down as if she is paying close attention to hear, first with one ear, then the next. For the first several months after coming to us, Baby Girl stayed inside the frame of the box spring to a bed in the Magoo Room. She came out at night to eat, drink, and use the litter box, but we almost never saw her. I would wiggle under the bed to pet her, but she was not easily won over. Finally she began to trust me, and no longer runs when I enter the room. She is even allowing strangers to see her. Baby Girl loves to be petted and have her chin scratched.
(2017 Update) Baby Girl, like Little Bit is now on medication for high blood pressure. She is difficult to handle for grooming and nail trimming, but I know she has no meanness in her. Her spinning continues.
