Mrs. Gabriela Prior

Pet psychic and landlady, Mrs. Prior is all too happy to watch Maizie when Dag is away. Mrs. Prior hurries about in a caftan with beads around her neck and a kerchief in her hair. She often sits pets, in addition to having a menagerie of her own. Maizie paces outside her door like a penniless man looking through the windows of Old Country Buffet.

Mrs. Prior says Maizie loves all the little animals that she keeps. Dag thinks Maizie would love to eat all the little animals that she keeps. Mrs. Prior gently explains to Maizie that the rabbits are elders and she needs to respect them. Maizie retreats to her bed and lies down, tongue hanging out on the floor in a small puddle of drool.
