No, I didn’t lose one this time. I’ve learned to stash them in un-bird-accessible places. I’ve lost a number of drawing pencils to Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbdore, my Eclectus parrot. He’s only two, and quite autonomous enough to go on rampages in pursuit of what strikes his fancy. Apparently pencils fit that bill.

The ironic thing is that nothing remains of the pencil except a pile of wood chips and graphite. Fortunately, he doesn’t seem to chew the graphite. Weeks later, I usually discover the eraser top, minus the eraser.

And I thought my old cats were destructive…

That’s it for Animal Wisdom today. It has nothing to do with cartooning. Ah well.
