Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Kitchen Cockatiel

When you are small and round and covered in downy feathers, other beings may not automatically assume you know your way around a kitchen.

But you don’tContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Kitchen Cockatiel”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: The Brave and the Fluffy

Even if you have downy soft fluffy feathers completely covering your body and can “cuteness stun” potential predators like nobody’s business, you still never know what a day may bring.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Getting Creative

There is no such thing as an un-creative individual. In fact, have you ever noticed there isn’t even a word for a being who lacks creativity?

To get creative isContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Getting Creative”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: What Goes Down

Up is good. Up feels great. Everyone likes “up.” But then there is what comes next. Down. Down has fewer fans. Some outright foes. And more than a few frenemies. Yet “up” and “down” aren’t so different, in the sense that when you are down, well, you know what is coming next. That’s right. Up!Continue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: What Goes Down”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be a Waffle Hero

Everyone needs a hero sometimes. But not everyone who needs a hero is equally good at letting others know. Some beings need extra encouragement to open up about the hard times.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Be the Bread

Sometimes life hands you big challenges. And you can’t always count on others to appreciate what you are facing. From the outside looking in, your life might look easy peasy – so posh and pampered.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Master Rooster

Being the “alpha” flock member is a big job. Everybody thinks they want that job until they get it. Then they find out why you need so many restful naps (“beta” flock members are hard work!).

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Plump and Perfect

It is no secret that there is an inverse relationship between stress and snacks. This is because stress burns calories.

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Nest Proofing

Into every life a little (or sometimes a lot) of rain may fall. Sometimes the rain will bring its best friend, wind. Wind may then decide to invite thunder (shudder) and lightning (no thank you).

When you stretch your heart, you can find a way to welcomeContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Sometimes You Gotta Stretch”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Way of the Waffle

The research has yet to confirm this, but it is only a matter of time. Waffles are wise. It takes smarts to be that tasty. To so master the art of personal presentation. To amass a worldwide following. To bring diverse groups of beings together – even beings of different species! When you have aContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: the Way of the Waffle”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: You-tastic

Just because you know you are very cute, talented, pretty and perfect doesn’t automatically mean other beings will agree with you.

You can stop caring what othersContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: You-tastic”

Cuteness for Comfort: Blue Is the Color of My True Love’s Pillow

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Living the Flavorful Life

Life is full of flavors. When you start racking up the years (heck, decades), you start to notice your life has all the flavors, each at different times perhaps, but overall in fairly equal measure. Salty. Bitter. Sour. Savory. And sweet. This means when a flavor arrives that is less preferred, you can remember itContinue reading “Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Living the Flavorful Life”

Cuteness for Comfort with Pearl: Going On Line

When you come from a vocal and social flocking species, social distancing just goes against your very feathery grain. In other words, no one ever made any hay by staying six feet away.
