Vern knows Little Debbie is around. She runs like mad with her tail fuzzed for 30m or so looking for her and generally being on alert. She’s pretty territorial. Little Deb isn’t big enough to handle that energy yet. Nona is similar but not as nuts As LaVerne. So she’s stepping stone #1.

Nadia (shelter name) - May be renamed. Est. 5mos.
