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!
It's strange though... Oliver told me that mice were really fast and crafty and difficult to catch, but this one was easy to nab and it didn't even move at all! Did I do something wrong, or is he just a terrible mouser?
