Here's baby Maddie. This picture always cracks me up.
THAT BELLY!! Good golly!
And here's what Alicia has to say about her dear, goofy girl:
Maddie is 6 years old now and has had an especially good year because of her feature in the IBKC book. I won't say she's gotten a big head with her newfound fame, but she has occasionally kicked Cassie out of her dog bed with little apparent remorse. When she and I aren't cuddling, which is most of the time, she likes to cuddle with her sisters. Maddie still loves to play with little plastic things that scoot across wood floors, she is still scared of the vacuum, and we still have to keep the toilet seat closed. She still likes to stick her nose into everything I'm doing. I can't leave beans to drain over the sink unattended because she will steal them! Bean thief! Maybe they make her think of her mentor, Butterbean. Maddie, Sophie, Gnocchi, Cassie, Tony and I are very excited to watch the totals go up on another great fundraiser and hope the money will provide care and homes for All The Torties!
And here's a fabulous set of photos of Maddie, Sophie, Gnocchi, and Cassie!

Thank you so much for sharing these, Alicia! It's clear she's still the character we knew and loved. Please give our love to Team Tortie and Cassie, too!
