Andy has a curious behavior. He doesn’t want to be picked up necessarily (or at all) but he wants me to know he’s there. He’ll quietly sit next at my foot or pat me on the arm.
If I try to pet him, though, he moves away or stands far enough away I can’t pick him up. He is not a trusting little fellow!
Shortly after I wrote this, Andy came too close, and I snatched him up.
“You know I don’t love lovin’!” he protested, but I proceeded to give him lots of it. He survived, but he was not happy with me!
