“He will stay there as long as you let him.”
Graffiti has always like cuddling, but only when he wants to. He’ll readily come over to snuggle with you on the sofa if he decides you’re a buddy (which typically doesn’t take long), but the way he does it is definitely unique.
Graffiti will do what his family refers to as the “suffo-snuggle” if he genuinely likes someone. He jumps on top of them and wraps his body around their face and lips, making it difficult to breathe.
His family will eventually calm him down and urge him to cuddle in the traditional manner. Graffiti, on the other hand, doesn’t understand why his preferred snuggling posture is such an issue.
Graffiti’s mother told The Dodo, “He has been suffo-snuggling ever as we can remember, but it has escalated in duration and frequently over the last five years.” “He’ll stay there as long as you allow him, and to get him off, you typically have to raise him up and place him next to you.”
Graffiti just wants to be as near to the people he cares about as possible, and there’s no better way to do that than to be right in their faces, right?
Graffiti’s mother stated, “He does it every day to his poppa.” “I usually do it in the mornings and before going to bed. But, when he wants your attention or is unusually loving, he’ll approach you and make a strange’snook’ noise, which signifies he either has to go to the toilet or wants to snuggle.”
Graffiti’s suffo-snuggles are a way for him to express that he cares, and his family wouldn’t have him or his snuggles any other way.
