I'm littler than both of my siblings here, but I don't let that stop me. I can play just as hard as anyone, but I'm a sucker for being held and tend to calm down pretty quick if someone picks me up. I've already figured out how to play this game my foster parents call "fetch." I have some trouble picking up the ball because I'm still small, but I just try until I get it.

I'm looking for a best friend and cuddle buddy to take me home to play and let me sprawl out on their lap while they watch TV.
