I’m going to refer to myself as a “Female Adventurer” from now on.
So if I’m a Roaring Girl that means I get to seduce women by acting like a lion right?
I am looking for someone to share in an adventure.
And the thing is…cats know. They just do. When you’re upset, they can tell. For me when I am, mine certainly know and they come up to me and nudge me and try to cuddle.
People don’t give them enough credit :/
