I finally lured Polly back inside one week later. Belle loves Polly with a stifling, suffocating affection that makes Polly feel unsafe. If Polly gets out, she stays out until she either feels safe enough to come inside or I grab her. Both Belle and Polly are coping with living together again. Polly let me hold her while I read Belle her stories. Later on, Polly came halfway up the stairs and meowed at my door until I came down to sit with her a while.
