Please excuse the feather stuck to my lips; I've been busy examining the interior filling of the mystery nest, a.k.a. The Feather Bon Bon (FBB).
I told Mommy that Scouty needed to see what was inside so she moved half of the FBB up near the purple hidey-hut where he was snoozing. Within seconds Scouty stuck his head out of the doorway, just like a turtle! He was very interested.
So was his snoozing partner, Johnny.
Scouty enjoyed the FBB so much he started dribbling...and thoughts of tasty feathered flying feasts flittered through his head. He has actually caught (and eaten!) birds on the Catio so he knows how tasty they are, the lucky dog. Wait, can I say that?
Oh well, too late now.
After a few minutes Mr. Argy-Bargy Johnson had to check out the FBB for himself and "muscled" (he claims it's muscle) Scouty out of the doorway.
But only for a minute. The turtle head reappeared as soon as Johnny's bum cleared the arch...
...because Scouty decided that sniffing the FBB wasn't enough, he needed to nom the filling!
(squeee! His gums are starting to get freckled just like Felix's--ed)
Feathers are rather dry and tough to get down but with perseverance--and a barbed tongue--he got the job done.
Tomorrow...a Tongue Extravaganza!
