The other day, Aila appeared. She had finally learned how to use the one-way catflap out of the Stumpies Suite. She had been sharing it fairly peacefully with Roosa, but had clearly missed our company too much to stay away. She has since been reclaiming areas of the Castle and niggling away at me. She is always insistent on checking things, so when Äiti was sorting out last year's kissanminttu harvest to get seeds for this year, she was the first to sniff and snort the container.
