She seeks comfort and love only from people who don't return her affection. I think it's unhealthy. Observe her recent interactions with a few of my housemates:
Lisa: [picking Peanut up and cuddling her] You love me!
Peanut: [squirming away and running under the bed]
Lisa: You don't love me.
Justyna: Mister Fluffypants!
Me: You mean Ms. Fluffypants.
Justyna: Come here Mister Fluffypants!
Peanut: [running away and hiding]
Elliot: Eh? Hmph.
Peanut: [walking on his lap and purring]
Ping: [holding out a hand for possible petting, at a friendly but respectful distance] Hi Peanut.
Peanut: [turning around and ignoring him]
Me: [flopping into bed and ignoring her]
Peanut: [trying to pet herself with my unresponsive hands]
Me: Oof. Lemme sleep.
Peanut: [purring and tromping all over my head]
If she were human, she'd need some serious counseling.Posted by dianna at January 28, 2007 03:19 PM
