Floofsnickety (floofinition) – 1. A fussy animal.
In use: “Brim was floofsnickety regarding all matters of life, including how his food was presented (the bowl must be filled and then set in front of him — and it had better be a clean bowl), how his fur was brushed, and how strangers approached him, traits that made him all the more endearing.”
2. People who put too unusual emphasis on details involving animals, especially housepets.
In use: “Marcia always cooked chicken for her dog — he’d never eat anything else — and dressed him each morning with a clean bow tie, habits which made many people call her floofsnickety, but only behind her back.”
I had a small dog once who would not eat food from her dish unless you took about four pieces of it and lined it up in front of her bowl. I guess it made her feel less like she was being fed and more like she was hunting.

OMG, I go through something similar with my cat. He goes in and out of phases where I must make a little pile of food in front of his bowl before he’ll start eating. I always think he’s just angling for special treatment.
