For those of you who don't know, Karl from The Cat Realm has dared his mates to seek out and befriend an animal from a species other than our own.
So... meet Garrett, my not-of-my-species special friend:
I found him over at the Animal Internet. Why Garrett, I hear you ask? Well, the reasons are manifold:
- He's a NEWPSIE!!! Yes, he lives at Newport Beach, CA... in The O.C! But he's recently moved there from Pittsburgh, so he doesn't know Julie Cooper or the Cohens (but I guess the Cohens moved to Berkeley, didn't they?). The O.C. was my favourite TV show. I'm a lot like Ryan Atwood, you see.
- He's a literary type. He wrote a whole editorial (published on the Animal Internet) about his previous work as a mine canary. Very impressive.
- As you can see, he's a Budgerigar, and Budgerigars are native to Australia.
- ... well... to be honest, he looks pretty tasty! The truth is on my side with this, because (according to Wikipedia) the name Budgerigar means 'good food' in some native Australian languages! But I've assured him that I'm too far away from him to do him any harm. He's a bit nervous about being my buddy, though. I guess I am a bit intimidating, just like Ryan Atwood.
