It can be very interesting for naturally quick and aerodynamic feathered beings to observe the techniques their large featherless assistants use to get around.
Because they have no feathers, no beak, and no talons (poor souls), they tend to require a lot of gear just to get from point A to point B.
For feathered beings who are new to interspecies cohabitation, it is important to know that some of this gear may look quite….odd.
Here, a simple security check can determine which items really are useful and which may be infiltrating the casa under false pretenses.
“Sneakers,” you say? To help my large featherless assistant walk around?
A well-crafted cover ID, if I do say so myself. Unfortunately for you, I’ve seen her walk around many times without using you.
You will have to go through our standard security check before you will be permitted to stay.
They say they are “sneakers,” Mom, and you need them to help you walk. I am going to check out their story so I suggest you stand back.
“Laces?” For tying you onto her feet? Well that seems implausible at best – especially with these large feet-sized openings right under my talons.
“Ankle support?” Sheesh – clearly a fabrication if I’ve ever heard one. I don’t have “ankles” so I’m sure she doesn’t either.
You know, next time you try to sneak in someplace, you might want to bathe before you go. You smell…..pungent. Try rubbing some waffles over yourself first – that should help.
Well, Mom – I have bad news and good news.
The good news is, blue is a great color for me and I look very cute sitting on top of these so-called “sneakers.”
The bad news? Well, they are clearly imposters. They are also very poor liars and they should have at least bathed before trying to break in. I’ll be escorting them out shortly.
