Because when she gets hurt in her other forms, she's hurt in all forms. If she broke her leg, she'd have a broken paw. ~grins~ There's no get-out-of-jail-free card in my world, though the sisters do heal up faster because of their Fae blood.

Thanks Yasmine!

That cracked me up - plus the image of having her claws trimmed ruining her manicure!

Oh yeah! I could literally feel her pain of the ruined manicure! Or having her sisters talk to her like she was a pet..even though she wasn't....Laugh it Up fuzball

Being the slave to cats, I also cracked up at the problems with her loving the Christmas tree and its ornaments!

oh yeah! That Christmas tree scene cracked me up!Laugh it Up fuzball I think I reread it several times. I even called my best friend long distance and read her that schene because it is so funny!

OMG! The burs was GREAT!!! Same with the tree... I would think that the sisters talking her and treating her like a pet would become annoying to her, well, it would to me.

You know that's based on something one of my cats actually did. ~grins~

I laughed at those scenes too. It's just too funny because that's just what my cats do when there's something that interests them on the tree or when they go outside.

My little girl didn't like having to be brushed out because she had stickers and things attached to her fur, but we had to do it. She's long haired and gets everything stuck on her easily.

I can say one thing for Delilah though, at least she doesn't bring her sisters little presents in cat form. My male has brought me three presents since being able to go out side and only one some how managed to stay alive so I could set it free (it was very tired though).

I have to admit, Delilah is my favourite D'Artigo sister now. I'm re-reading all the books in the series, and I just find her hilarious! I love cats (my fiancee believes I am part-feline!); so thinking about little tabby Delilah makes me laugh, especially when Kitten is scaling Christmas trees, "talking" to neighborhood animals in kitty form, and "meowing" to identify herself over the phone.

I was once fondest of Camille; she is a witch, and I have been a practicing Wiccan since 2003. I love her attitude, her style (I'd have a field day with her wardrobe), and her confidence. Like all the characters, there is more to her than meets the eye. I admire her for looking after her sisters under extraordinary circumstances and terrible trauma. That she manages to step up like that and look fantastic? Well, Camille really was my clear favourite, no doubt about it.

As for Menolly...I had a harder time getting used to her in-your-face, don't-piss-me-off-or-else attitude. With Darkling, I got a better insight into why she acts the way she does. I've had a past similar to hers (minus the "undead" thing) and I began to root for her. Her determination and courage helped her to face her inner demons, an empowering choice that made me like her better.

Now, Delilah...I never thought she was as exciting. But looking back at the series as a whole? I think she is a strong, passionate woman who is willing to fight for those she loves, and sacrifice her dreams and ideals for what she believes in. To me, that shows her true strength and now I love reading her POV, especially Changeling. It's a brilliant, moving story and I can see the potential for her eventual change into panther.

Changeling is wonderful (but a big "ew!" to the spiders!). For the record, though: Delilah's men are not my type! Trillian, Morio, and Smoky are the REAL Triple Threat. And Rozuriel, please call me! ;)
