We the otters who Cat knows taked over the Middle Flipper. We are so clevers. We has fingers that can type on the computer box. We can google image search. We has hands that can open doors. See, we don't always destroys stuff.
|Here I is. Pippin. That's me.|
Don't be mad at us. Because we dids it for good reasons. Such as the american human thing on Thursday called THANKSGIVING.
|We founds this in google "thanksgiving" but we don't get it. Why does the dog have otter handses.|
We knows about the Thanksgiving. Everybody says what they are thankful for which is really neat. The problem is the humans always tell themselves and us about what they are thankful for. We try to tell them back but they never understand us. So we has a plan.
We sneaked out every night and did some trips around the country. The humans they leave our place at 4:47. Me (Pippin), I stands on Luna's back and gets the doors open. Emerald whines "what if they finds out" but she comes along with us anyways. She likes the car rides. We takes the night guy's motorcycle and go to different places at night. Even the airport. You think it's impossible? That is okay. If you are too silly to believe us then that's probably why we never gets catched!
|Understimates us? that's your mistake. Not ours.|
What did we do on our adventures? We were like news reporters. We went to different zoos and different aquariums. We asked the animals WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR.
Some of the animals were skeptical. Mostly the dolphins. They are kind of snobby. They did not believe we otters could deliver their message. They said YOU CANNOT SPEAK TO THE HUMANS.
We said WE CAN WE CAN TYPE ON A COMPUTER WITH OUR NIMBLE FINGERS
They said WHAT IS A COMPUTER
And that took up a lot of time to explains it but they understood eventually.
|Dolphins think they knows everything.|
So after lots of months we now have the top five things the animals are thankful for. You guys works hard all day. You deserves it.
|omg we are gonna find that fluffy thing and shreds it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE MAID SERVICE.
We did not know what MAID SERVICE was but luckily the dolphins explained it.
We are grateful for our clean homes. You do it every day. You never forget about us. Every day, you make sure we have a clean home. Thank yous.
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOU MAKING OUR FOOD.
We eats a lot of it. You always gives us the best quality food. We see you come in real early. Even before the sun comes up. You go into the kitchen and a few hours later, out comes all our food. You smell like our food. Every day, you do this. Every day, you make sure we get the best. We knows it.
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOU BEING THERE FOR US.
When we do not feel good. When we have a baby. You are there. You look tired sometimes. Some of us, we like to take naps. The sea lions and otters do not understand how humans can go so many hours without sleeping. How do you do it? But we see you help us. Even when it is dark. Even when it is cold. Even when you cannot sleep. We know you care about making us feel better. Even when it is not us who is sick or had the baby. We see you care for one of our own and know it is because you love us all.
|Here you go.|
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE TOYS AND STUFF.
We loves the toys. And the funny things you do. The smells you put in our house. The food in the ice. The food that is still alive. The food that is in the ball with holes. You make the day funner with the toys and silly stuff. We like the soft places you make for some of us to sleep. We like the neat things at the windows to watch.
|That's a nice penguin.|
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOU ALWAYS LOVING US.
When it is cold outside or it is raining, you humans are still doing all the things for us. You have no blubber. You do not have a thick fur coat. You have weird skins you take on and off. They look wrong for keeping you warm. But you still play with us, clean our house, teach us things, and make sure we are happy and healthy.
In some places the animals live inside. They thank you humans for still taking care of them when there is real bad weather outsides. When it is not okay for other humans to be going to places. You come in and spend the night, just to make sure we get what we need.
And also, we are not always wanting to play. No matter what we do, you still love us. We could be real difficult. We could do no shows. No interactions. We will not go where you want us to go. We will hide toys and never bring them back. Stuff like that. But you still love us. You never get mad.
All of the dolphins, seals, sea lions, walruses, otters, birds, elephants, snakes, fishes, apes n monkeys, hoofstooks, big cats, wolfs, dogs, horses, invertebrateses, amphibianses, oh all the animals, those are the things they are thankful for. They say THANK YOU all the time but you do not understands it when they says it. Now you know.
