Feather The First

First, I'd like to thank all of my friends for dropping by yesterday and leaving such kind words during this tragic time as I mourn the loss of Feather the Second. Sadly he can't be saved. Mom tried to just tie him back on his swing pole, but it was too much damage ::Sniffs and holds back tears::

I will be ready for another Feather some day, after a proper period of respect (Mom's next trip to Petsmart). It's just that Feather the Second was so special. It looked just like my SIFs tails and it was brought home to replace Feather the First. Feather the First was also cut down in his prime. Luckily he was rescued from death's door (he was just a string on a pole with a couple of brown feathers at the end). He was sent to live on the Feather Toy Farm.

Mom was worried I was eating the plumage as it fell off, but I don't know why she thought that.

 I was going to spit it out...
I know Feather The First is in the country being chased by farm cats, but still I miss him too. 
I hope Feather The Third will be pink, and sturdy.

  5. Maybe this time you should request the feathers attatched to the bird of origin...ALIVE, of course! With the pink theme we're thinking perhaps a flamingo would work...just a thought.

  11. We hope Feather the Third is sturdy--and pink--too! :-)

    P.S. We have no idea why your mom thought you might eat the feathers, Fin. Really. Can't imagine where she'd get that idea!

  16. When you get Feather the Third, be sure to lock it up somewhere away from that bad Dyson. Mom needs to hurry up and bring Feather the third home.
    We are still shedding a tear over Feather the second.
    Hope you have a super day Fin

  18. My, my Fin, you certainly have lived through more than one tragedy! It's the cycle of life, though, and even feathers are subject to it.

    Perk up! I'm sure you'll love again.
