Re: Over attached to a particular family member
All my pets have always had one particular family member they preferred, childhood (5 people plus) to adult (me and BF).
Of the current crew....
The Husky (male, neutered, rescue) is the BF's shadow, even though he's been mine 6 years and the bf only a live in for 3. He adores BF, but is my buddy when BF isn't around. Total love hound.
Chester the (big!) kitty (male, neutered, rescue) got last summer is also the BF's buddy, will hardly come near me (are we sensing a trend here?!)
and Mags the wunnder runt kitty (undersized) (female, spayed, rescue) is my buddy and rarely leaves my lap or shoulder if I'm home and sitting, and follows me all around the house if I'm doing chores. She'll tolerate the BF if I'm not home and he is seated. A warm lap trumps snobbishness I guess!
So the male/female crossover definetly doesn't apply in our home.
Happily owned by:
Lads (Alladin's Folly) Red Husky (rescue)
Chester the cat (humane society)
Mags (Teeny Tortie Siamese runt, too "old" to be sold at 12 weeks)
Mocha (Chocolate Siamese) At the Rainbow Bridge, I'll always miss you.
