October 28, 2005:

Scrawny little thing, she looks so skinny. Don't these rich people feed her?

I got a whole plate of fish for her and she scarfed it ravenously, jumped up on her hind legs to get to it before I could even put pieces on the ground for her. She took it right out of my fingers, her little claws out to steady herself on my outstretched hand. Desperate. Don't they feed her?

In the morning she'd forgotten me entirely. Wouldn't let me near.
