...or is it even a choice I have to make at all??
Seeing as how I've been reevaluating a few of my stable slots my thoughts have naturally drifted towards choosing between pets I have multiples of. I think I've worked out my double Core Hound issues nicely by placing Marama with my alt for now. I will reevaluate my multiple cats once MoP hits and I finally get my orange tiger I've been drooling over since Blizcon. Then there's White Lady and Daredevil who basically do the same things even though they're not technically duplicates.
The hardest decision of all right now is deciding whether to decide between my two Devilsaurs. Well, actually it's deciding to decide if I'm going to release Badcop, my King Krush, as Vixen is going nowhere. Yes, they are duplicates but their personalities are vastly different making this decision so tough.
Some pets have personalities that just pop out easily. That are immediately and loudly apparent. Savage, my Jormunger, had a personality that popped out right after taming. So did Sancho Panza, my hyenna who's currently running the wilds of the Barrens right now. My two Devilsaurs are excellent examples of this as well. Badcop went from being the ferocious and fear inspiring King Krush to goofy, lighthearted, and silly the instant he was tamed. Vixen is the polar opposite of Badcop. She is ferocious, temperamental, jealous, and an all around hothead. How can two nearly identical bunch of pixels be so different?
All this talk of the personality of pixelated pets has me wondering how I, as an educated, rational, logical person can wax on about my temperamental black devilsaur vs my goofy green one. I don't know. Maybe it's because I'm an animal lover so my brain is hardwired to be more in tune with them and that somehow translates into the way I think about my "fake" pets. But it is what it is and right now deciding whether or not to keep both is killing me.
Typing out this post has helped me come to a non-decision decision. I'm going to take my time making this one and not do anything too soon. Straight as a spiral and clear as mud, right? Sigh!
