Peanut is one of the largest residents in Munchkinland. She’s always eager to see what treats you have for her, and will take just about anything you offer with gusto. She’ll even call out to you from a distance if she suspects you have food that you aren’t sharing with her. She’s not above catching her food though, so you can often find her on the ground foraging for bugs or high in the trees catching flying insects and other tasty treats.
