"You're taking ANOTHER picture???" (redux)

I surprised Pewee.  She really doesn't like her picture being taken.  But she was so absorbed in the chipmunks that she didn't realize I was sneaking up behind her.

Pewee was Ansel's predecessor.  She and Phoebe were my favorite of Kate's cats.  They didn't care about me in the slightest.
