Zouzou came to me all the way from Prague, lived in New York for five years, and has crossed the US twice (once by air, once by car), so I guess it’s only natural that she’d  be trying to stow away in my parents’ luggage as they get ready to head off to Shanghai. I can’t say as I blame her — if they were taking big enough suitcases, I’d be considering it myself.

Animal print looks good on her!
