A Sonia is an odd creature, requiring a particular set of circumstances in order to thrive. To keep a Sonia content, be sure to give it plenty of space. A Sonia requires long periods of silence and or solitude in order to maintain equilibrium. If a Sonia is surrounded by people and noise for too long, it will get testy and may start growling. Long periods of recovery are required for a Sonia if it is over-stressed by people and noise. Should this occur, feel free to offer your Sonia some tea on occasion, but otherwise leave it alone. If you have a library, leave your Sonia there. The quiet of the library and smell of books will be a great comfort to your Sonia.
Similarly, a Sonia can be very much like a cat in that it will enjoy your company, but not necessarily your attention. Shared quiet activities like art, reading, or listening to music will do wonders in strengthening the bond with your Sonia.
How can you tell when a Sonia is unwell?
It's simple, really. A Sonia's usually prodigious appetite will vanish, leaving you with no choice but to force feed the Sonia. I recommend warm, comforting foods like soups and stews. Also of note, a Sonia's usual fatigue will escalate, requiring a Sonia to sleep more than usual. This can be difficult to detect, as a Sonia often requires more sleep than most, particularly if exposed to large social gatherings recently.
An unwell Sonia may also be a great deal more clingy than when its health is good, often whining for attention and care. Feel free to ignore it if necessary. An unwell Sonia will be drifting in and out of slumber, and so will likely quieten very soon.
A fairly indicative symptom of illness is whether or not your Sonia will play. If it does not even approach the gaming centre, you can be fairly certain that the Sonia is not well at all. It is best to let the Sonia be and not force the issue. It may make you feel better to see your Sonia playing, but it is best to just let it rest and recover. It will return to play soon enough.
If you have any other concerns, feel free to contact your local Sonia expert. Call 1-855-555-5555 for a directory.
Thank you and remember: adopt, don't shop.
(For real, though, I'm still sick. I will be streaming tonight, though, as I'm on the mend. You'll have to put up with my snivels, blowing nose, possible coughing, and the usual amount of death and cursing)
