Calling your pet by its real name is a myth.























Last night, I was sitting on my bed doing homework, and Yoshimi was laying at my feet. I wanted to pet her, so I tried calling her. Here's the exchange:

"Oh Yoshimi!"

She lifts her head up to look at me.

"They don't believe me!"

She puts her head back down.

"Yoshimi, come here so I can pet you. C'mere! c'MERE!"

She closes her eyes.

"Schmoshmeema! C'mere pretty girl!"

She lifts her head again.

"I love you! You're so wonderful on too many levels to count! Please c'mere so I can pet you! I love —"

She SNEERS and then puts her head back down.

I only call Horatio (my hedgehog) 'Horatio' because he has absolutely no dignity to begin with and doesn't need my help getting any cuter.
