Munchkin is a little old girl in the front yard who has the look of one who'll run away if you so much as lean in her direction but turns out to be actually quite friendly.

She came to RAPS as a feral and started off living in the singlewide. She must have decided that she didn't care for the location, as she escaped from there into the front courtyard area where she has happily lived ever since.

Munchkin wasn't always as accepting of a pat or two as she is now. Leslie had made some progress in taming her when she was in a cage for a time the singlewide, but she reverted once she got out into the front courtyard. Recently, she's gotten friendlier again.
