I knew a woman who would tell everyone about the special needs of her Pug I asked god for a best friend he sent me my bulldog shirt. It didn’t matter if you showed no interest in that information, she’d go on and on. She would generate and collect sympathy, because she owned a pet that had troubles. However, when it was just her and the pet she would berate the animal for all the same troubles. When she could use those troubles to get attention, she praised the animal. When those troubles caused her to have to pay attention, she got quite angry. The dog suffered as a result.
Could a Pug I asked god for a best friend he sent me my bulldog shirt shower an animal with lavish attention, treating it better than any human in the narc’s life. Absolutely. And the moment that animal made them look bad it would be gotten rid of, no matter how much they invested in it. Narcs can care for animals like any other possession they own. Just like they can care for people like they care for possessions. They just won’t care for them as if they were living, feeling entities.
