I write in hope that I will find confirmation that I am not alone with my problem. I am an alpaca owner and I am obsessed (normal) I also dream a lot, especially after eating too much cheese (normal). I woke up at 4am on Boxing Day, I am perspiring, my heart is pounding (reasonably normal for many I guess, depending on what has been consumed) I am not sure if my dream is for real or not, hence the anxiety...I have lost Foxy Sox (not an unreasonable worry as she is a rejected cria)...I have lost her in Marks and Spencer's Food Hall (well I do spend a bit of time in there)...I am racing up and down the aisles, stopping other customers "have you seen an alpaca" now, you might think that would be enough information...but no...I go on "she is this big (hand held out) she is fawn and very, very cute"... no one has seen her, they try to reassure me "she won't come to any harm in here, we will find her"...but this doesn't help...as I explain my concern "but she doesn't know how to cross the road on her own" !! (mad as).
I would like to know if I need treatment or if other owners also demonstrate such signs of extreme obsessive behaviour?
