Two part question, though both related -
- What is the best method of keeping my pet "happy"
For this, I mean, how do I keep my pet from wandering off and either becoming feral or getting killed somewhere off in the distance? In the early game, my character generally doesn't come across tripe rations or anything else that my pet would consider a treat (I start as a Valkyrie normally). Normally I try to keep up with it, but sometimes it just disappears off into the wilderness, and then I have a sad feeling for a moment, but it passes...
- In keeping my pet happy, how do I ensure it levels up with me?
Is there a good method of leveling your pet? I have seem my kitty grow to become ferocious once or twice, but it seems that happened by a stroke of luck, and not from any effort of my own. Obviously I'd like to have a fierce pet to help defend me throughout the game!
