As beautiful as their tails are, it’s such a shame that this one minor mark is used to categorize such a complex creature.

I had a little difficulty trying to convince her that the asphalt path was not the best place to be wandering after dark. I let her climb onto a leaf then I put her at the bottom of a London Plane near the Hawk Bench.

After more than two months in this condition she is still standing. Daily she's kicked at, spitted at, chased and run over. Her kind is much hated and constantly poisoned, electrocuted, and exterminated. Her persecutors continue smoking, drinking, over-eating, lying, cheating, and stealing. But after they all drop dead from cancer, heart attacks, constipation, lyme disease, and excessive phoniness...she’ll be still standing proud even if she had just one toe left on that last remaining foot.
