There is one visit during the day from a lady down the street who has made the girls a casserole, on the grounds that it can be hard to remember to eat when bereaved. Bella thanks her sincerely, sniffles a little, and sends her on her way. The casserole is shared around for lunch. Bella asks Ax what Andalites eat, and when she finds out, she locates a bag of grass clippings in the backyard that he pronounces acceptable. She also asks him how he eats them. By way of illustration, he steps both forehooves into the bag of clippings.

Night falls.

They can all go to the Seattle zoo and acquire everything they can get their hands on.

The first thing they get their hands on is a map.

"All right," says Trouble, "what's everybody want?"

"I want a snow leopard instead of a jaguar if that's okay. And a wolf. And otherwise what Bella's getting except I don't care about the coyote."

<I know very little about Earth fauna,> says Ax, looking around via stalk eyes, once he's demorphed. <I will accept advice on the subject. I may also fit in somewhat fewer of these enclosures than you would.>

"Think I'd like a bigger owl than a barn... I'd like a wolf too, better than a cat, I think."

"Ooh, they have mountain goats," says Robin. "I want one. And they have lions, tigers, jaguars, and leopards - I want all four. I'm going to see if that morph mixing thing works between species that can interbreed."

<There are species here that can interbreed?>

"Yeah, some. Specifically the four living Panthera cats, that I just listed - almost all of them have been interbred with almost all the rest, and between lions and tigers I think they've gotten down to crosses of crosses. So I want to see if I can get a mix of all four with morphing."

<That would be a fascinating discovery if it worked.>

"Ooh, and a serval. Those are fascinating. They can jump with incredible precision."

"And I want an otter," says Trouble, "if we can get those. Otters are cute." He checks the map. "Looks like they're on the way to the kitties. Otters first if they're convenient, then big cats, then we figure out where to go next?"

"Ooh, otters, I want an otter!" agrees Andi.

Otters it is!

The otters, it turns out, are perfectly accessible; the back door to their enclosure isn't locked. Trouble finds a sleeping one and pets it.

From: [personal profile] aeskhyne
Big cats next!

Snow leopards are closest. The door to get into their enclosure is locked—

Trouble leads the way into the enclosure.

He finds a napping snow leopard.

He pets her.

"Oh," he murmurs, "she's so soft..."

"Ooooh," breathes Andi when she follows suit, "she iiiiis."
