The weatherpet is afraid of large predatory birds.

I have tried explaining to him several times (using visual aides) that he is safe within his weatherpet compound.

“I believe that predatory animals need to register with some sort of government agency,” I reassured him. “Besides, we live in an Isla Vista apartment.”

With that I deadbolted the front door and we cowered together.

Thursday’s Forecast: Yeah, I have a pet – he’s for protection.
