Birds sieze control of the Little Chomper


Not again…

Bird on ledge looking to right

Yo Ernie!

What is it, Bob?

Look at that mangy cat down there, staring at us all the time, givin’ us the stink eye.

Luna looking up out window at bird on ledge

That cat has nothing better to do.  It’s indoors ALL day and ALL night…

And … hey Ernie! Get this!

What Bob?  What should I get?

They feed that cat regularly!  On a silver platter!  Every meal bigger than you, Ernie!

Bird on ledge looking forward

What a life that’d be, huh?

Yeah Bob, it’d be a sweet life.

Waits just a second hea’…

Ernie!  We birds are pretty small, right?  Ernie?

Yes we are, Bob!  We’re very small, even for sparrows!

I have…

Bird on ledge looking to left

… an idea.

Psst!  Ernie!  That mangy cat’s asleep, right Ernie?

I think so, Bob, but birds don’t normally crawl into a cat willingly.

Luna slumped to slide on sofa near window with paws hanging to side with shadowy eyes

Where are the eyes in this thing, Ernie?

I’m lookin’ Bob!  I think I found ’em!

Luna slumped to slide on sofa near window with paws hanging to side looking at camera with just nose showing

Yeah, much better.  We can see now!

Hey Bob!  What’s this switch do?

Don’t touch it!

Too late.

Ernie!  You put the cat back into sleep mode!

Luna slumped to slide on sofa near window with paws hanging to side with eyes closed

Oops.  Hang on Bob.

Ah, much better.

Luna slumped to slide on sofa near window with paws hanging to side looking at camera

Okay Ernie!  Let’s figure out how to steer this thing!

Bob, I think I found the controls for the legs.

Okay, give it a shot!

Luna laying on sofa staring forward with paws against window

Hey Ernie!  Great work!  But we need those paws on the floor if we’re gonna get anywhere!

Good point Bob.  Let me try this…

Luna meditating on sofa with paws against window

Ernie!  You just put the cat into sleep mode, AGAIN!

Sorry Bob.

Luna laying on sofa with paws against window

It’s okay Ernie!  Let’s stay focused!  Figure out how to make this thing walk!

I’m on it!  Here goes nothing, Bob.

Luna on sofa with one paw against window and the other stretching to camera

Ernie!  You did it!  Isn’t that paw a beauty!

Careful Ernie!  Don’t make us fall!

I got it Bob!

Luna on sofa with paws spread against window looking at camera

But how are we gonna get this cat on the floor, Bob?

Ernie, okay, listen closely.  Here’s what yer gonna do!

Gently slide the cat to the floor.  Move that paw down carefully, Ernie.

Luna laying on sofa with crossed paws against window looking forward

Yeah, that’s it Ernie.  Carefully…

A little more…

Luna laying on sofa with crossed paws against window looking right

More Ernie!  We need those paws off the window!

How about this, Bob?

Luna on sofa near window with paws hanging off to right

Great job!  Youz got real potential in the cat driving business, Ernie!

It’s slipping Bob!  The cat is sliding down!

Ernie!  Think soft landing!  SOFT LANDING, ERNIE!

* POOM *

Luna laying back on blanket looking at camera

How’s this Bob?

It’s just fine, but we’re wasting time!  Give me the controls a sec.  Where’s the food?

Luna laying on blanket with leg near face looking right

Bob, that cat’s always eating in the kitchen.  What about the kitchen, Bob?

Good idea, Ernie!  Sometimes you got lots more good ideas than the rest of us bird brains!

Now let me just pull this lever and …

Luna squished with leg and paws near face closeup

Ernie, I think I’m stuck.  Take the controls again.

I can’t make heads or tails out of this cat thing, and you seem to have a knack for it.

Okay Bob.  I’ll just push this button here, and ease that lever back a bit…

Luna squished with paw over nose and leg pointing up

Easy does it, Bob!  Easy does it!

What’s that!  Oh no!  Hang on, Bob!

* squawk! *

Luna in shark on sofa near blanket taking nap

* UUUMMMPH!!! *

ZZZZZZzzzzzz… *chirpchirpchirp*

Luna napping on shark jaw with foot sticking out

Ernie!  Ernie!  Wake up!

Huh? Wha? Whozzat?

Luna laying on side on shark jaw with foot sticking out

What happened Bob?

We’z got eaten, Ernie! Eaten by a shark!

What’s a shark doing in a house, Bob?

I don’t know, Ernie.  We birds don’t know what houses are really like, flyin’ around all the time!

Hey Ernie, find us a way out of this place, before…

Luna laying on side on shark jaw with foot sticking out looking right

Ahhh!!!! Ernie, get us out of….

*SQUAWK!*

Luna closeup of face and tail when squished by shark

The shark, Ernie! The shark is eating us!

Must get free…

Luna closeup of face and paw when squished by shark

*CHEEP!*

Luna being engulfed by shark

I’m starting to get woozy, Ernie!

This ain’t good, Bob!

I’m passing out Ernie!  I only see darkness!

Luna side of face when squished by shark

I always loved you, Bob!

Ernie! I loved you too!

*muffled squawk* *mmph!*

Luna being engulfed by shark with just an ear showing

ZZZZZZzzzzzz…. purrpurrpurr…

Luna's head on tongue shark is sticking out

What the?

How did I end up in a shark?  And why do I feel sore?

Let me see where I am…

Luna trying to escape shark closeup toward right

This is weird.

I was asleep near the window just a second ago.

The shark never eats me when I’m protected by sunlight.

But… wait a minute…

Luna peeking out while shark is sticking out tongue

The window is open!

I never leave the window open.

Luna staring nervously

I feel there are feathers stuck in my throat.

Ahem! *cough*

Luna looking straight at camera with paw covering mouth

Ahem ahem!

Wait, wait…

I get it.

Slightly farther front closeup of Luna stuck in shark looking a bit to right

It must be those birds.  They flew in through the window, and into my belly.

They were messing with me while I was trying to sleep.

The birds… I trusted them…

Luna looking to left seeming determined

Serves them right to get digested by a shark while being digested by a cat.  It’s the modern day turducken!

Meow.  I know you were hoping for some entertainment, but a cat’s gotta get her Z’s!

Luna in squished shark with paw up

Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to go back to the blanket.

Luna squished on blanket with tail between legs

That’s better.

But I need some protection this time.

Luna looking to side while on blanket with paws up

Let the Little Chomper show you how it’s done.

Lookin’ tiny!  Lookin’ irreSISTably CUTE!

Luna curled and held close on blanket

Cuddly thoughts, cuddly thoughts!

And… here comes the opportune cat flop!

Luna lying on blanket near computer and purple arm

Meow!  Protect MEEEEE!!!!!

And… there’s the arm!

Luna lying on blanket near computer held by purple arm

Privacy please!  Purrpurrpurr!
