    She is a quick squatter, mine all lay about staring at me expectantly and stomping, makes me uncomfortable to have to fake-hump them to make them quit. [​IMG]

    Yep, that's at least the beginning of squatting. If you want to have some fun, scratch her back when she does that. My Rhodie will arch her feathers, arch her neck like a horse, arch her back and purr. After I scratch her she will often puff up and frill her feathers.
