RIP Jezebelle

For real this time. Quiet Jezzie, soft Jezzie -- daddy's little prima donna died tonight.

We don't know what happened. We were getting ready for bed -- msmemory was already under the covers, and I was washing up when we heard a brief strange scream. It took me a minute to find my glasses, and then inventory the rooms. I found her under one of the chairs in the dining room; I knew almost instantly that she was dead.
