This is Lily Grace. She is one year old. She says, “The reason I don’t lie with my mom is that I am worried she will squish me. She is bigger than me. I love her eyes. They are magical. When I see them, I think of a past life, she was a woman in the jungle, and I was her wild cat. I want to live that life again. Can we have jungle things here?”
It is common for people to think that their animals do not love them if they are not cuddly. That is rarely the case. Animals may not be affectionate for many reasons. Perhaps it’s a pain in the body, past trauma, just a personality trait, or fear you may squish them. Funny girl. Animals often secretly admire their humans and the other animals in the house without others being able to tell.
