Pet Yukkuris and Pet-Keeping Yukkuris
To teach her pet baby Alice responsibility and maturity, a FemAnon buys a huge, elaborate “pet-keeping” kit consisting of a semi-automated yukkuarium and lots of accessories, so little Alice can have “pet yukkuris” of her own (a bad-mannered stray Marisa/Reimu couple and their two children). FemAnon watches and is prepared to step in if needed (and anyway, she considers the strays expendable), but Alice mostly rises to the challenge.
Alice has to feed her pets three times every day with the automatic food-dispensing button. However, cleaning is not automated. When Alice goes inside to clean up their poop, the strays are ready to attack her and escape, but the kit came with an electric baton so Alice can defend herself. She herds her pets into the doghouse-like section of the tank and locks them in while she uses her miniature mop and dustpan to clean up. The strays mock her and call her their toilet-cleaning slave, so she punishes them with the baton. Alice learns a sense of hierarchy and the importance of good manners.
Alice’s owner has told her that there isn’t enough food for more than four pets, but (of course) the strays are unwilling to obey the no-refreshing rule Alice gave them, and the Reimu gets pregnant. It makes Alice sad, but as her pets’ owner, she has to take responsibility. With the ramune, aphrodisiac, and yukkuri-sized clippers provided in the kit, she knocks them out and castrates them. Alice also has to perform an abortion, painting Reimu’s stalk with mustard.
After three months, FemAnon notices that Alice is getting bored and a bit more neglectful of her pets. Alice wants to go to a sleepover party at a friend’s house, and, with some inkling of what will happen, FemAnon lets her go. Alice gives her pets a full day’s supply of food and tells them to make it last until she gets back. Of course, they eat it all at once. However, this is special low-nutrition food that is quickly digested. When Alice comes home, she finds that the younger two of her pets are dead and the two parents are near starvation. Alice learns an important lesson.
Three months later, Alice is all grown up, a fine, upstanding yukkuri thanks to her experiences with the pet-keeping kit. FemAnon buys a nice Marisa to be her mate.
FemAnon mentions that the last two of the pet strays died a month earlier, weakened and depressed by the loss of their children. To keep Alice from being too sad, FemAnon altered their agonized dead faces and made them up to look happy, making Alice believe that to the very end, they were grateful to their kind owner.
