Mingus has decided that kids are cool because they feed him animal crackers and they give him lots of pets. He even liked playing with the talking puzzle, although the talking part of the puzzle ended up frustrating him and I had to stop him from repeatedly pouncing on it. V is for violin! Y is for yak!
Kids even give him hugs and kisses (followed by some spitting out of fur). At first, Mingus was confused and a little alarmed.
Then, Mingus eased into the hug. He focused on the good things, like an endless supply of animal crackers.
The thought of animal crackers really warmed his heart, and he begin to enjoy the toddler version of a hug, which is more like a lean.
Mingus was showered with many more hugs that day, sometimes when he wasn't expecting them. This visit is going into the books as a successful playdate!
