Cats love me, dogs as well, but without wishing to be flippant, their behavior around me leads me to believe that it is the particular odour which I
give off, which attracts the beasts toward me. Every cat I have encountered in a social setting, has ended up nose deep in my jacket, or my armpit, or
has sniffed the straps of my backpack, all of which carry my scent. Every dog I have ever met does a similar thing. They love it for some reason!
As for kids, it really rather depends on the child. The trouble with me is, I look like a badly thought out comic book character, that fellow from
the Marvel Universe version of Asgard who is not perfectly proportioned enough to warrant page time alongside the other, more photogenic characters of
that heritage. This means that kids, unless they are used to us metalheads, can have various reactions, ranging from total confusion (usually beard or
hair related), to wonderment, to total and complete shyness.
I think it is a poor habit to generalise over much about these things, since kids react to things differently dependent on what their parents have
taught them, what television shows they have watched, whether they prefer Autobots or Decepticons, Pirates or Ninjas... that sort of thing.
