The Case of the Mysterious Escaping Feathers

Every few months or so, Pearl does something called “molting”.

It starts gradually….a feather here, another feather there.

Then a longer feather – let’s say a tail feather – suddenly drops out.

And it’s on.

All of a sudden there's half a bird under my chair.

It is worth mentioning that Pearl seems as mystified by the process as any of the rest of us.

Feathers? What feathers?
Oh. THOSE feathers.
