I'm Stripe....I'm a little shy sometimes...like, when I meet new people...or when I see people I've met before but can't remember their name...or when I see people whose name I remember but it's been a while...
I'd like to get to know you better. Just please be patient with me. I'm still growing up and learning that everything are okay. My brothers and sisters all seem to have gotten the hang of it, but I'm a little more cautious than they are...better safe than sorry, because I heard what curiousity did to that cat!
What's your house like? Is it safe? I'm sure you say it is, but I might have to come over and make sure for myself...and if you're right, I might just make myself comfortable and call it my home too! I bet you'd make a pretty good roommate. I know I would. I'm quiet as a mouse (until I get to know you a little better, then my favorite thing is snuggling!)
