  • Character: Bossy

Thea is a big gal and she is the 'bossy boots' of her group.  She has lived with her friends Sara, Val, Rene, Niner, Iris, Meg, and Ruby her entire life. She spends much of her time being a busybody and micro-managing what everybody else is doing.  She'll follow her friends and screech or grab at them if they have something she wants or are doing something she thinks they shouldn't. She might push someone from that perfect sunny spot, take a piece of food, or interrupt chitchat. Her friends tolerate her bossiness to a point but screech back when she goes too far.  Although, bossy to her friends, she is very sweet to her caregivers.  Most days, rain or shine, Thea can be found exploring her almost wild habitat looking for someone to manage.
