Houseguest number 2

I went up the stairs from the guest house to the nearest Indian shop to get some breakfast and water. I came back downstairs, and on the main terrace one floor above me meets me this charming creature who was MEOWING like a Siamese - so vocal, saying "I'M HUNGRY!!!!" I told her I had nothing to offer her, and wanted to talk to her, but she feigned disinterest and moved on seeking food. Five minutes later she wandered into my room. I gave her these Indian cracker snack things (seasoned) I didn't think she'd go for but she did. I got them to put my incense in. Then she kept trying to get into the incense to get at it. I though I wished I had some milk or cat food, then realized I just got some yogurt. She was all for that! Turns out she was born @ September under a guest's bed, and had a litter mate that was adopted. If a home is not found for this one, oddly named Jemima, I may take her home with me after I go back to Dharmsala in a couple of months.
