Deliberate, premeditated negative attention seeking to get her sister away from minecraft... We have a budding manipulator on our hands. Which we have known for a long time but this was particularly funny from the other room. Her sister, a far more subtle creature, just wandered in to us and had a cuddle...

She knows leverage when she sees it! smile
