Spot was being tossed around like a bean bag, by a group of boys who were walking down the street in front of my job. She was only 3 or 4 weeks old, and I took her, put her in my pocket, returned to work and took her home at the end of the day.
I had just lost a lot of weight and had loose skin on my neck. Spot slept with me and within the first night or two, she was suckling on the loose skin. It took her nearly 3-years to stop sucking on my neck, but at 4-years old, she still licks my neck and sleeps in my arms with her nose against my neck every night, and several times throughout the day. Will my baby ever grow up?
