Lyra: Three Years as Ship's Cat

We brought Lyra home almost exactly three years ago today.

Named after the main character in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy, I've always thought that this passage from Northern Lights describes her perfectly!

"She could hardly take her eyes off Farder Coram's daemon, who was the most beautiful cat she'd ever seen. [...] 
When the sunlight touched her, it lit up more shades of
 tawny-brown-leaf-hazel-corn-gold-autumn-mahogany than Lyra could name."
