I ask you, doesn't this look like a feather? I combed Pika yesterday, I removed every single stray bit of loose fur and today, right this minute she came down to be loved and I worked this out of her. A giant pre-hawked-up fur ball. I saved myself the cleaning up process because if I had left it on her she would have licked it loose and swallowed it and...just like an owl--which I mention is also a bird, I would have seen it later, possibly in my shoe. It would look just just like a owl pellet.
This is why I see fur-balls-resembling-owl-pellets all over the place:
Pika grooms herself...
and grooms herself...
and grooms herself. She groomed herself so much she misplaced her eyeballs. Poor Pika, misplacing her eyeballs like that.
Honestly, I tried to get a full face picture of her but she just was too busy, licking and licking and preparing a Sunday morning surprise for me.
Thank you, Pika.
