Hiding in plain sight. Under our noses, so to speak.
What better disguise than to pretend to be helpless?
To be adorable, or funny, or subservient?
They sleep in our beds, eat special food, wear handmade sweaters, get their teeth cleaned, their nails trimmed, and are hopefully, bathed on a regular basis.
If no one else likes the way we smell, they do.
They have absolutely no shame, and secretly adore a private bath, or a bath of privates, at a formal dinner. They enjoy the power of pooping anywhere, knowing their owners have to bag it or else.
They are everywhere, look around.
In paintings, in Broadway shows, in restaurants, in special parks just for them.
