A cute critter I adopted from
This is Leroy.
He's not exactly awkward, but not exactly suave either...
One would consider him paranoid. Sneaky. He likes to blend into the background. He would prefer to crawl along the ground or duck into bushes or hide behind trees and watch everyone intently.
Just imagine being out in the woods in a tent camping, you open it up to look outside into the darkness... and all you see are two creepy bright orange eyes staring back at you in the night. Freaky right?
Because he's ever so watchful, he is suspicious it's actually really easy to spook him. He nearly jumps at anything unexpected. He does not like being teased or spooked for fun and will stomp and huff in a fit.
The worst thing ever is to call him a "Yellow Belly". Which means to be scared, to bait him into something he doesn't want to do. It's almost always a dare when someone calls him that for not wanting to do something or avoiding something. Drives him NUTS.
