Attila & Leia
It took Leia 2 days to size Robbie up, and she knew exactly what to do to lure him in. She was on the couch, and when Robbie came in the room, Leia started playing. She was hopping about, reaching between the cushions and having a great time. She made cute little chirping sounds. This caught Robbie's attention, and the closer he came to her, the less playful Leia became. When he was at the foot of the couch, she was sitting there, waiting for him. Just before he jumped on the couch to join in the fun, she whapped him in the face.
How proud she was! You could see it in her face, the way she held her tail and the way she moved. Sadly for Robbie, he fell for this trick many times, and Leia didn't ever to seem to tire of it. The mom was impressed that she figured this out after knowing Robbie less than 48 hours.
Sometimes the mom would take Leia & Attila visiting. Once, they were over at the mom's parents house. The mom was playing with Leia on the stairs. Leia was backing up the stairs and the mom's hand was advancing towards her. When the mom got to the top of the stairs, just her head was poking up. She could see Leia's face change, and she could see she had an idea, but the mom didn't know what she was going to do. So she stayed still. Leia walked up to her then popped her in the face.
Again, how proud she was! Her head and tail were high was she pranced away. She really shocked the mom!

Leia had the mom's number, too. She would pop up from behind the couch and start playing with the mom. The mom naturally would bend over the back of the couch to play. When her guard was down, Leia would pop her one in the face. Like Robbie, the mom fell for this time and again. But Leia got so much pleasure and was so proud at having gotten the better of her, the mom didn't mind, and had to laugh at her. What a character!
Korats, which the mom believes Leia was, are known to be very playful and intelligent. This certainly fit Leia!
