I took some time to watch a movie yesterday, and Minuet decided to join me. She is not as interested in cinema as are or have been some of my cats, but she consented to spend the afternoon with me.

As an aside, you may be able to observe how much of her body is still almost uncovered by hair. Like a tiny bison, Minuet’s hair is re-growing quite well on the front of her body, while ignoring great patches on her sides. This may, as was suggested to me, correspond to her colouring, though most of her fur is a golden brown hue; even so, there may be differences of texture or tint that account for this.
