Meet Olivia *bonded To Isabella & Zoë*
She is certainly the most fashion-oriented of the three, Olivia has quite the stylish hairstyle. She is also the most dominant, if Olivia decides that a shelter is hers, it’s hers, you’ll rarely see her chased out by one of the others. If you catch Olivia in the right mood she may tolerate some gentle petting as well. She may even purr a little if you happen to find something that she likes. Surprisingly, despite being the most dominant, Olivia is also the quietest. You’ll rarely hear her unless one of the other girls is doing something that she doesn’t like. While not to the same extent as Zoe, Olivia can be fairly food motivated as well.
Olivia can be a bit of a bully to Isabella, never to the point of biting or anything extreme, but she may chase her around a little. As a result, having a divider or at the very minimum a selection of shelters for the girls will help limit any drama.
