What if they trade me in, too? I keep trying to show them that I'm worth keeping. I kill all of the bugs I see, and eat them up. They are delicious, but don't tell the humans that! I make sure they know I will protect them from Intruder, too. I run at him and hiss at him and all-around tell him he doesn't belong here.
Maybe they won't get rid of me if I let them pet me more. They seem to like that. I don't know what else to do.
