You always wonder what your pets are thinking. With me, I just have this compulsion where I want to feed them and make sure they’re getting enough food in their tummies. After they finish eating I’ll sometimes even rub their sides, feel their tummies, to make sure they got enough food in there. Ha ha. I don’t want them fat. And I don’t want them emaciated. I like it when their bellies are just right.
It’s probably because I never had kids, never had children. I probably project that paternal instinct onto the little rug-rats. They’re my little babies.
