don't make me hurt you
Mamma bear's gonna knock you out! A visitor playing with HK yelled at him (well at least spoke loudly in a snappish tone) the other day. I was shocked, snatched him away at the time and changed the subject. And since I've become borderline furious. And then it made me nervous. Nervous about how I am ever going to trust a carer to take care of him as I would. Arrgghhh back in your cage mumma bear.
