1.) Don't touch the bare floor! Pretend it is quicksand and avoid it at all costs.
3.) Dress for success. Tell your people to get you some jackets and sweaters. If your mom decides to make you a fleece jacket to wear temporarily while you're still growing, make sure she uses the little squares of stick on Velcro. That stuff is an awesome chew toy. It tastes pretty good too. If you can't reach your Velcro, get your brothers and sisters to help.
5.) If you are little, the big sad puppy eyes thing can be an effective method of convincing your people that you need a cuddle. On their bed instead of on yours.
