Bear has more friends these days, though she's still a bit independent. "Although she's been an accepted member of the flock she still reverts back to her loner times and really values her alone time," Pell said. "She just needs a little bit of space sometimes."
"She's evolving," Pell added. "She is still coming out of her shell."
"Mostly she really does love to be loved by all of us," Pell explained. "When in the mood to be pet, she paws at you to continue petting her if you stop."
