Curiously, this isn't the first time an animal shows a lot of unfounded affection for me. As a teenager I once spent a couple of weeks holidays with a family whose well-cared for dog suddenly became so fond of me at first sight that he would follow me wherever I went and wouldn't part company with me day and night, completely forgetting his owner who, by the way, was the one who fed the pooch. When I was leaving, he followed me to the train station and was howling on the platform as my train was moving away. It broke my heart, and it hurts every time I remember the scene.
Ready for the jump.
