The Adoption: An Update

I know it has been a while since I allowed you into my world. Do you remember me? I'm Raffi, and I can tell you a lot. I have my creatures almost fully trained, but they still have some issues. They sleep when I am awake and still haven't figured out when I am hungry! But besides that and a few minor issues, I think I have trained them well. Yeah, I would have to say that there is a slight problem with the few minor issues.

For some reason that is beyond me, my creatures took in an animal. At least this one is not like that other one with the white stripe down its back. But it is probably more annoying. First off, I learned that it's name is Riggy, and secondly, I hear my creatures saying that it is the same as me, but that is impossible! I am unique! And for Pete's sake, this Riggy guy clings to me like a shadow. Heck, if he isn't busy sniffing my butt or hugging me, I can't relax because he's laying on top of me. Believe me when I say that I need to give him a few smacks in the head to let him know I am the important one!

The other minor issue is I worry about the smaller creature that I adopted. Lately, it's been getting fat and slow to feed me, but I will give it the benefit of the doubt. I heard them jumping up and down yelling "baby, baby" over and over again. Obviously, they must have a new toy for me to play with, and of course, I will do my usual by ignoring the toy until no one is around. At least it better be a toy and not another animal like Riggy. I might let you know.
