The Siamese ground sloth is a rarity, and is found only in domestic households. Her natural habitat is a suburban bedroom, with occasional forays to sitting rooms and store-rooms. She makes her nest in heated cat-beds, but likes to sleep form time to time on human beds.
The Siamese ground sloth can find her own food, munching throughout the day on Z/D nuggets that grow in glass bowls, but also enjoys soft Z/D, a kind of disgusting paste found in tins. This the ground sloth likes to have placed before her on clean dishes.
Though blind, the Siamese ground sloth uses her whiskers, sense of smell and the blunt force of bumping into objects to find her way about, and intimidates other animals in her environment by hissing and growling. Few of her fellow creatures dare stand in her way.
While not for the faint of commitment, a Siamese ground sloth makes an excellent companion, becoming attached to her particular human after several years of acquaintance. Requiring a high degree of care, due to her sightlessness and often contrary nature, the ground sloth rewards affection with affection, and demonstrates this by purring contentedly while lying on a human’s chest.
