Seriously, why did biologists/linguists/etc. ever think "fowl" was a fair term for all kinds of squee bird friends? It's a word that sounds far too close to another word that does not describe them in any way at all!
My baby kitten Vashie the day I brought him home (@ 7 weeks old). He was already such a lil poser, standing purrfectly still and staring straight into the camera for his photo op with his natural, furry tux <3
