The really scary thing was that the second Joey meowed it that’s when a lot of rustling of grass started. Everything got really shady. They were coming!!! The ‘burds’ were coming a huge Shoebill was coming right at them.
For all his talk, Hank gave this yelping sound and charged for the water. The noise woke up Toni, who actually thought this was all some kind of game, until the Shoebill stepped on her tail. “Meeeee-yowwwwwwwwwwwl!!!!” she screeched. She struggled for a couple of seconds but, by some miracle, she managed to yank it out from underneath his foot and she dashed into the water too. And meeee-ow if only we had this on film- she did a purr-fect somersault leap into the air and did a backflip which caused her to land on Hank’s back. Now, Daisy headed for the closest tree and so did Joey, meaning it was up to the Mayor and Casey to face down the Shoebill.
Meee-uhoh- this didn’t look good.
Okay, that’s the understatement of understatements. These dudes were in trouble. Casey acted on reflex- he grabbed a coconut. Meee-ow that’s right a coconut. Yeah, coconut trees were all over Fish Island. Basically, it’s your standard tropical island which is good thing…
Bepaws Casey’s aim was purrfect- it landed right on his head and it bounced. The ‘burd’ looked stunned, he took a step and he ended up falling down.
However, there was no time for back-patting more were coming!
