Day 268: Detecting Intruders

When you have feathers, you also come pre-installed with a keen “sixth sense.”

Unfortunately, your large featherless housemate does not share your gift.

This means she can be hoodwinked by intruders left and right.

For instance, not so long ago a small round featherless intruder boldly invaded your casa.

Your featherless assistant still hasn’t noticed.

In fact, she feeds it and changes its water every day – just like she does yours!

You even have photographic proof.

The featherless intruder enjoys a large chunk of fresh mango....cut and served by Mom.

Here, what is needed is a demonstration of “feathers”….and how the intruder doesn’t have any, which clearly means it is in the wrong house.

My food ledge is getting crowded with the intruder's supplies. Clearly I need to do something.

I'll just start by pointing out the intruder's things - like this bag labeled "Tortoise Nutrition."

Mom? Do you see it now? This doesn't belong here - it doesn't even have my name on it!

I keep forgetting Mom is more of a "visual learner" - I'll just remind her what "feathers" look like by preening some of mine.

F.e.a.t.h.e.r.s., Mom. FEATHERS. The intruder is the one who has no feathers.

  1. Oh Pearl stand up for your rights! Did you see the luscious food the intruder was eating? Hmmm I think your Mom gave you some of the same. Although I am sure you would have preferred Waffles more. Carbs rule! Feeling your pain, signed Charlie. P.S. consider yourself lucky Mom brought home a feathered intruder Chloe and she is a real pain! She eats my cheerios!!

    1. Wow – that is a good point, Jeanne – poor Charlie! Cheerios theft cannot be tolerated! Maybe now Pearl will stop complaining so much about Malti….one can always hope. 😉
