Fatberd singing in the dead of night
Take these felted wings and learn to fly
All my life, been waiting for my Fatberd to arrive
Here was some of my inspiration for Tweet Week. My Fatberd. I had my eye on one of these little fellas for awhile, so imagine my surprise when he flew into my life the other day...
Dad went to the mailbox and returned while Mom was... indisposed. He yelled out that a package had arrived for ME. I was so surprised, first a paw it forward and now this!
"It's a surprise for Toontzy. It's gonna be for Tweet Week." Mom yelled from her perch.
"Meow! Open it Dad! Do It!"
"I'm gonna open it!" Dad yelled to Mom.
"No! Not yet, I wanna take photos!" Mom yelled which only I heard, and naturally choose to ignore.
"Do it Dad!" I mewed loudly as Dad got busy cutting into the package. I held my breath as I waited to see if my birdy dreams had come true. I made sure that I continued my loud meows, to cover Mom's continued yells to leave it alone.
"Oh this is really cute! It's this blue bird." Dad yelled out to her.
"No! I said don't open it! Don't give it to her yet!"
"Oh she loves it! She's rubbin it all over her face.... Now she's kickin its a-"
"No!" Mom said as she came into the kitchen, just in time to see me finish some darling bunny-kicking business. "Shoot! Did you not hear me when I said not to open or give it to her?"
"What? No. I thought you said TO open it."
