Shhhhh. Be very quiet.
We have a rare opportunity to study the nightly migration of the Fuzzy Bellied Honey from the corner of the bed to the middle.
Yes, I know she looks cute curled into a ball near that pillow. But beware. The drive to migrate to the center of the bed is a powerful one. She will not let anything get in her way.
Get out your night vision lenses. I think she’s making her move.
See how effortlessly the Fuzzy Bellied Honey moves closer to the sleeping subject who shares her habitat? A simple stretch before resting her head on the subject’s leg has her one third of the way to her objective. And notice how the subject is lulled into complacency by her cuteness.
Surely this is the result of millions of evolutionary adaptations making the Fuzzy Bellied Honey supremely suited to this migration.
Oh no. We missed it. With super stealth, the Honey managed to work her way down to the knees of the sleeping subject before rolling over on her back and entering a full splay position with paws, ears, and tail taking up space over most of the bed.
Amazing! She did all that without attracting our notice. No one has ever witnessed that move. The first person to capture on film the Fuzzy Bellied Honey’s move into the full body splay will be famous.
Look. I think the sleeping subject has finally realized the danger she is in. She’s clutching at the covers and pulling frantically. She’s trying to move her legs into a more comfortable position.
But it’s over. The Fuzzy Belly has won. Nature is a cruel ruler and not all will survive her reign.
