1.) her plump little body. It's not really that plump, it's all just hair, but when she goes outside and starts rolling around on the sidewalk, I've got "Butterball" floating in my head, lol
2.) Her attitude/temperment. She's an independant girl and would definitely be a punk girl if she was human. Yet she's got a soft side underneath that only those close her her ever see. She acts like she doesn't care for Buffy, but if Buffy ever gets cornered or stared at by my dog, Willow gets all defensive and tries to divert Jake's attention to her.
3.) She's so predictable. Her picture should be right beside "routine" in the dictionary. If she's going to do something, you always know what she'll do first. For example, if I'm lying on the couch and she starts walking towards me, I know she's going to jump up next to me and curl up behind me knee. But she'll do the same thing on the way first. First, she'll be on the kitchen table when she looks over and sees me, the kitty bed, on the couch. Then she'll go to the corner of the table, look both ways, lean down so that both front legs are pressed against the table leg and the corner of the table is pressing into her belly. Then she'll jump to the floor when the floor is only a couple of feet away. Then she'll walk towards the table next to me, spooking at least 3 times at foreign objects in her path (like the rug, some socks, a toy). Then she'll jump up onto the table that's nearest to me and preen (chest and back arched). Then she'll jump down and jump up onto me, walk onto my legs and circle a few times, then plop down like the butterball that she is. Groom a foot a couple of times, look up and look around, like her foot again, and then lower her head and go to sleep.
1.) Her wackiness. She's got some missing screws in her head. To a regular stranger, Buffy would look like that, because she's got a weird way of doing things, such as pushing things over with the back of her paw. Yet those who know her can see an intellegence deeper down. She might use the back of her paw, but she stops and ponders the object first, tilting her head and looking around it closely as if to find the path of least resistance. And the way she reacts to us shows how smart she is too. It's hard to explain just how she reacts, but if she truely had missing screws, she'd just stare at us blandly while we chatter to her.
2.) Her humour. Its hard to tell if she knows when we're laughing at something funny she did, but she seems to know what things make us laugh and she'll repeat them another day. She also knows what we DON'T like, and she'll work harder to repeat those. She especially loves to watch things get pushed over the edge of something tall and fall to the floor, and she'll repeat it if you gasp and say "Buffy! No!" I swear I can see pleasure in her eyes when she's about to do something bad, like pouncing on Willow, who's grooming herself, or after she's done something bad.
3.) She's so loving. I've heard Willow purr maybe a max of 3 times in her whole life, but all it takes to get Buffy to purr is to look at her, blink, and start snorting or purring. And if given the chance, she'll sleep on or against you, when with Willow, you're lucky if she'll lie down next to you (there's a 1 in 4 chance of Willow lying down next to you when she's happy and content)
