Red Dead Redemption With Nijinsky

I’m sure y’all remember Moto, by now.

This handsome fellow is Nijinsky. Nijinsky is Moto’s long-suffering-yet-charmingly-(mostofthetime)-neurotic older brother.


Nijinsky is never more affectionate than when I am playing Red Dead Redemption. Without fail, every session of gaming involves a variant on this conversation:

Nij: Ummmm….whatcha doin’?
Me: Playing.
Nij: Soooo…. *headbutts my knee*
Me: Just a sec, buddy.
Nij: No. Right now. *paw on my leg*
Me: Nijinsky. Can’t you—
Nij: But I love you. So much. Right NOW. *nose on my nose*
Me: NIJINSKY I HAVE TO PROTECT THE WAGON FROM THESE BANDI—Well, fuck it. Now I’m dead.
Nij: *purr* *gentle headbutt*

  1. This is familiar. Scotch often decides that he needs to scent-mark my fingers when I’m trying to cut zombies in Dead Island, or battling Necromorphs in Dead Space 2. “Hey, that’s sweet… I love you too… but.. could you… OHFUCK… great, now I need a new head”.

  2. OH MY G*D THOSE EYES.

    Keiun totally does exactly this thing. Most of the day, she is emphatically NOT a lapcat. She has her proud independence. If only us stoopid hoomanz would let her outside, she’d go russell up enough squirrels to feed herself, with plenty leftover for those of us who are too incompetent to hunt.

    But, if I stay up late playing a game? She absolutely must nestle into my lap and headbutt the controller from time to time. MUST!

      “Rustle up” even. :-P

      (Though now I’m wondering how Russell figures into this.)
