Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Nanami is being aggressive to you. I agree that it's strange that she is only that way toward you. Are you the one that takes care of her mainly? Do you feed her? Play with her?
