Unfortunately we need to let you know that Yoda has died. Yoda got a good score due her brother being kidnapped by an Eagle. We still shake our heads in wonder at this. It seems that Yoda was hit by a car and didn’t recover. We’d known, fleetingly, that she had gone missing unfortunately too late.

That means she must be doing something fairly agile to make her window climbing decision useful. This score stands whilst further investigations take place as to where exactly this “bedroom” is. Health & Vitality – 6/10 She looks healthy. She certainly doesn’t look like she’s 7 years old so she must […]
