This is the second oldest fur child in our house. If you came to visit and stayed a week you likely would not get to meet her. When Donald's youngest son moved in with us he didn't see her for about six months. She's afraid of EVERYTHING.
She's lived with us for 15 years and she's still afraid of everything. She will let both Donald and I pet her, in fact she will demand it. But that doesn't happen if both of us are in the room. This was a recent evening after Donald was asleep and the dogs were both sleeping in their beds that she same out and pawed me gently until she got the petting she wanted. She however does always sleep near my pillow.
