This mostly was just an excuse to pick up Kendra that way. It’s so painfully cute to watch kids pick up any animal in general that way (and yes, I totally sympathize with the animals too).
Or maybe it was just an excuse to draw an animal like the cats in the Monty Python sketch “Killer Cars.”
I remember having a tough one with this, about the seriousness of it, the over-the-top talking by Kendra, and then coming up with something funny. but it all kinda pulled together.
