First of all, this is a dangerous question because I most certainly have antagonists who already have a smart ass answer prepared for me. Sticks and stones...
- I do not like that younger boy's chunky, clunky fingers around my neck at any time of the day. I need my space. He may pet me gently between the hours of 8:40am and 2:30pm Mondays through Fridays. School? Oh, that's too bad. Well, then his visiting hours will have to wait for school holidays or summer vacation and then we'll have to work out some sort of compromise.
- Those other two wild beasts can not be on the bed at any time during my nap. The room must be dark and I don't want to hear Tulip's snoring. It can be very disturbing. I must also have my own pillow free of drool and tree bark.
- My food bowl and its contents belongs to ME!
