I know a lot of you liked Neko and looked up to her, thought she was mature, etc. But that’s all from the point of view of people who haven’t known her before she joined.
We were in a pack together, led by the popular artist Tiger2836, called “The Littlebigartists.” There was another member of the pack whose username was Chickoletta, nicknamed Chick, who we will get into later. Neko, Chick, Potato (another friend in the pack who now has her own), and I as well as one or two other members of the pack started this granny cult. Each of us had a tiger, which we dressed like a granny. We wore Flower Umbrellas, leg warmers, Big Hair With Rollers, earrings of our choice, and a Flower Petal Collar. This is how we bonded, unlike the other pack members who I never got to know too well.
For our granny cult, I decorated my Vintage Estate den as a “Granny Hotel,” where everyone in the cult could visit my den and book a room. Since each granny had their own color (I was red, Chick was green, etc), I would make each granny a custom hotel room that matched their color. I noticed that Chick seemed uneasy around me. She didn’t like to talk to me that much and talked less when I joined a conversation. Later, she built her own “Granny Resort” at her Beach House den. Everyone started going to her den and no one even stopped by mine anymore. No one talked about it, no one visited, absolutely no one. The grannies of the cult were well aware, as I’d have to tell them multiple times, I could not have buddies and I asked that they kept their dens unlocked so I could visit. Chick’s den was always open and unlocked before. But when she opened the Granny Resort, it was locked until I traded her to ask her to unlock it. Even then, she’d lock it again after I left.
One time I was able to get into the Granny Resort, Potato (who I believe was the blue granny) asked what we should do to take our cult pride further. Neko suggested we got cats (which looked like small tigers) and ended each one’s name in “hopper” as we had a habit of calling young ones “grasshoppers” and the pet tabby kitties looked like young tigers. Potato suggested we got someone in the pack to draw the cats together. In the pack chat, I asked Plushie (a member of the pack I didn’t know too well) if they could draw our pet cats.
Later that day, just me, Neko, and Chick were online. Neko asked me why I “forced Plushie to make the art,” which I didn’t do in the slightest. All I did was request if she would take commissions from us and wait for a response patiently, which I still hadn’t received. Neko hadn’t said this harshly, but then Chick joined the pack chat and started rapidly accusing me of things I didn’t do forcefully. Neko didn’t start forceful or harsh, but it wasn’t long before she joined in. For at least an hour they taunted me, screamed at me, accused me, and shouted.
Neko could have told Chick to be polite like Neko was at first, but instead she decided it was a better idea to be as rude as she was. They made me hurt a lot. The worst part was that no one else was on to talk to me or see the pack chat. It was like Chick was waiting for that time that only we were on. Neko called me names and insulted me repeatedly. When I tried to claim I didn’t do any of the things Chick suggested— and it wasn’t like she was overexaggerating, none of these things had been even slightly true in the first place— Neko called me a liar and a guilt tripper.
When they decided they were done, they both spammed over all their insults and harsh words until all that filled the pack chat was spam and the evidence that they were ever bullying me was erased. Neko even refused to stop spamming after I told her repeatedly that it was making me lag in part.
At last, to my huge relief, Tiger was online. I told them everything they said to me summed up, and Neko and Chick were there at Tiger’s den while I spoke, against Tiger’s wishes, both of them talked over me to scream that I was wrong instead of letting me state my case. Tiger decided that they would demote Chick and Neko (everyone in the pack was a leader), even though that never happened. Neko did apologize before she could be asked to, but Chick had to be told to apologize to me.
Afterwards, Neko pretty much wanted to forget that happened and acted like it never did. The only thing she brought up that was related to the whole scenario before during the short after-chat we had at Chick’s den when I was done speaking to Tiger was that they had forgotten to demote the two of them, which they had a good laugh at.
Many months later, I came to Neko’s den and told her about how Chick made me feel, but she kept defending Chick’s side, thankfully not as forcefully as she’d attacked me that day. I requested that she brought Chick to her den so we could work things out and perhaps understand each other better. I don’t know if it was because she was blocked or because Animal Jam was glitching, but I couldn’t see Chick or her chat. Only when I opened the chat feature was I able to see what she was saying. I have had this glitch before with the leader of my old pack, Raining Dawn. It caused me to refresh as I couldn’t see the leader at their den. Even when I refreshed and returned to Neko’s den, I couldn’t see Chick.
After I’d told Neko that I couldn’t see her, I saw in the chat that Chick was insulting me again and calling me names because she thought I couldn’t see her or anything she said, and once again Neko went on with it. Neko yelled at me, very suddenly, not to “ghost” which she defined as pretending Chick wasn’t there. No matter how hard I tried to tell her that I could not see Chick, she went on to say I was lying and “ghosting.” Still Neko seemed like she’d agree with Chick even if it was to bully me. I was starting to think that she wasn’t really sorry after all.
Months after that— about a few weeks or so ago— my friend Cherry was unexpectedly visited by Waffle, who she was saying didn’t care much about her because she wasn’t as rare as Waffle’s other friends. Waffle had ignored her when speaking to her rarer friends and brought her friends everywhere with her even when Cherry asked for Waffle alone. I suspected she was visiting Cherry because our friend Pie and I had just been at the same den as Waffle and she was Pie’s buddy and Pie went to Cherry’s den after she left the den Waffle was in, so Waffle followed her.
Then I got an unexpected visit of my own.
I wasn’t in sight of Waffle, but I could see her chat, so I opened the tool that shows you the usernames of everyone in the same den as you. Soon, another username was added to the list.
Neko walked in and said, “Sorry, I was just following Waffle” and just acted like I was invisible or something.
We were once good friends, guys. But she chose to bully me for whatever reason and I haven’t forgiven her for it because she seemed to enjoy being rude on multiple occasions even though she said she was sorry. I’m not gonna lie here. I was absolutely horrified when she messaged me on my wall and said she’d joined the wiki and I’m not as upset as some to see her go.
