Ebony shares her home with her brother, Sisyphus, and their roommates Marmalade, Winona, Manjushri, and Deborah. She tolerates living with a Doberman / Coon Hound mix named Niobe, aka Nee Nee. Her male human is good for the occasional pet or lap-sitting session. Her female human is her best friend and must be supervised at all times to ensure she doesn't fall into the toilet or drown in the shower. Ebony's favorite food is chicken, but she will eat bread or cellophane in a pinch. These latter foods cause the female human to call Ebony's name, wave her arms, and rudely remove the food to another location. Ebony's interests are sleeping, playing with toy mice, avoiding Winona or Deborah, and yowling in the wee hours.
