While it's likely that these little critters have no use what-so-ever, it's also possible that they do have some sort of use we haven't discovered yet. There, in fact, some weird circumstance around them: +You can only cuddle them in a house. -It doesn't matter who's house you use. -Taverns and Inns don't let you cuddle. +There's a timer on them, about 10 minutes (that's an estimate). -The timer is per character, not stuffy. +Doesn't seem to have any effect on logging out, stats, curses, or resists.
