The cat lady there was animorphed for her own protection. 😉
What they’re petting tentatively is a hognose snake, and learning about it. I was holding Thunderer at the time so I didn’t really get to listen too closely.
Instead I distracted her with the rare “squirrel” (okay, not really rare :p ).
It was a redheaded squirrel though, which immediately means it’s superior. 😉 Right Redflare? 🙂
