The answer is yes!
During the day she is on this long leash which is just looped over a rail which allows her quite a free range but should she get loose and race down the veranda as she's wont to do, I'm able to dash after her and step on the leash, which stops her in her tracks.
At night, however, she sleeps in Colette's shop among and on the hides, sans collar or leash. She has the run of the whole shop from 5pm until 8.45 am when Colette opens her shop.
At present two more half-grown kittens have arrived to share Missy's space. At first she growled and hissed and Mama Jo kept her on "this side" of the veranda. Today she's loose again and indoors with her new BFF. One kitty is a smokey grey and the other is ginger striped. The latter has climbed up on a walled ledge in the shop and fallen asleep there. Missy and the grey kitty have shared a meal together (served separately) and at the moment, are dashing all over the shop playing.
The door is closed and customers know to enter so it's business as usual for Colette. With the added attraction of the cute kitties on view.
Hello Mama Jo, is this a good pose for your blog? (note her leash is free)

This is where Missy Miscot hangs out at night and now is playing with her new kitty friend
Soon I'll post Missy and the grey kitty playing...
