    Thanks Kev. To give you an idea, here's a pic I took this afternoon with Merri sitting with his/her legs tucked up at the back. Sat like this for about an hour, on a weird angle with rear end pointing up. Eyes open, watching me when I came near, but didn't move even when I got this close to take several pictures.
