Lizzy shares a room with our 11year old son. He is only here every-other week during the school year. We are botb women, and although we fuss over her, spend time with her, bring her goodies, train her, we build and modify her enclosures... STILL, she undeniably prefers his company!.. She seems to know how many days it takes him to return... She eats better when he is home..... She will eat things she flat out doesnt like to make him happy.... She NEVER comes out without permission, but will BEG to come out, even actively try to escape just to be near him while he reads, plays games or naps.... She is CRAZY about him!
I'm curious to get the opinions of long-term experienced IG owners... is this because he is Male and she is Female? Do they just form deeper connections some family members based on personality?
