Ya know the humor of that item's relationship to Snuggly finally occurred to me today. Snuggly asks you for something warm and soft, and as a response you can drop a pile of poo into her nest, and she's happy enough about the whole thing to reward you. That just makes me feel all warm and soft inside.
That's not considering the fact that I've had encounters in this game before, where I was deadly serious, heart pounding, teeth clenching, palms sweating serious, as I'm sure was the other player, where all we were really doing was throwing poo at each other.
I guess DkS is just the kind of game where you get into a mode of just mechanically doing things without really thinking about their true implications.
