Picture, dating from the 29th of January, this year. Jay was our new ‘roommate’ only since 3 days then and not even two months old. He nevertheless already sleeps on top of his mistress' feet and still is, say, of marmot-size.

This photo was taken on the 17th of July 2019. He’s now 7½ months old and nearing his adult stature. At least, that’s what we hope for.

He’s utterly curious. And utterly lovely at the same time.
