2 weeks ago I reported on Daddy witnessing the first meeting of the Long Beach branch of The Pigeon Anti-Defamation League.
Seems they had issues with a favorite Pet Store of mine, called Pussy and Pooch.
Yesterday, on the first leg of an all day trip to Los Angeles, Venice, and Santa Monica, Daddy decided to check out the main store, downtown.
Not seeing any Pigeons around Daddy went inside for a look see.
When he asked the nice lady clerk if she's ever encountered any protestors out front, she was kind of puzzled until he told her about the one out front of the Belmont Shores store chanting "Hee, hee, hey, hey, P & P what about Me?" because the place was not called Pussy, Pooch, & Pigeon, and catered to Birds, too.
It was then that Daddy got a surprise, and learned that the Birds may be woefully mis-informed.
According to her they managed to be quite helpful to a Bird Lady once, and even helped someone with a Rabbit!
Daddy said this store has lots more stuff for Cats, and before he left he even bought a very cool, and interesting, book!
Daddy decided to stop by nearby Pershing Square, a popular, and Historic, Public Space in the center of Downtown on the off chance that local Pigeons might be hanging out, and he might learn something interesting. ;-D
Pershing Square has had many makeovers in its storied, decades old, life.
Now it is mostly concrete, though there are still some grassy areas as well.
These days it is a mostly peaceful, family friendly, place to visit, it's homeless problems mostly a thing of the past.
They even have a section where the Dogs are supposed to make their Humans take them when the Dog has to go Potty. ;-D
From what Daddy saw at least one Human was in desperate need of some training. ;-D
As luck would have it, Daddy got quite an earful, from 2 very different segments of the Pigeon Community that lives in the central city.
While one Pigeon wasn't in a chatty mood, it was not hard for Daddy to figure out what mood it WAS in. ;-D
Meanwhile, nearby, others were not in a Public Protest frame of mind. ;-D
Daddy soon left, and headed off to Venice Beach.

Daddy, like the fictional Dr. Doolittle, understands the words of many critters, and the things he's heard them say, about Cats especially, have always been interesting to me.
Far too many Humans have no clue how often Cats come up in conversations among other animals...now Daddy, and I, set out to reveal what is going on right under their noses. ;-D
