I don't have much to add to the pet thing, but Ophelia, your pictures are always amazing. Excellent work.

As with anything in Second Life things that can be great in moderation can be a problem if they start to take over. Love and understanding are, as you have noted, always the best way through.

From my perspective, the bottom line is whether you would be equally concerned if a friend was spending the same amount of time and money on coin collecting, fine art, wine tasting, designer handbags, stamps, comics, golf, sports memorablia, volunteering, vintage cars, cigars, quilting, exotic travel, political activism, playing a musical instrument, or any other activity to which people commit time and money.

Unless the answer is an unqualified "yes", you're not reacting to your friend's "addiction" or "crutch", you're projecting your own discomfort with an activity that you don't enjoy or understand.

To paraphrase Freud, sometimes a hobby is just a hobby.
