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.
So you have to bring both.
The brave and the fluffy.
This way, if you try “fluffy” and it doesn’t work, you still have “brave.”
And vice versa.
With particularly ferocious foes, you might even want to use them both at the same time.
Say, for example, you encounter a whole group of grumpy infectious particles.
Because the particles are so numerous and irritable, you decide to break out the big guns and spread your (soft, fluffy) wings at the same moment you bare your (brave, curved) beak.
Half the particles faint dead away from all that cuteness. The other half faint dead away from fear.
Brave and fluffy. Works every time.
