Thaddeus was so excited when he received his first ever invitation to a holiday dinner that he didn't even think twice about accepting.
That was his first mistake...
Sadly, he was not as much invited TO dinner, as in was his host's intention for him to BECOME dinner.
Luckily for Thaddeus, he is fast on his feet and aside from loosing his beautiful feathers, he escaped physically unscathed.
His trust in humans, however, has suffered serious harm. The best I could do for now was to try and give him a little dignity (not to mention warmth) and help clothe his naked body until his plumage returns.
Perhaps some of you may wish to do a little more by inviting him to a real Thanksgiving Dinner and the warmth of family togetherness, stuffed with the laughter of friends; can show him the bounties of the holiday season.
Thaddeus will be on his way later on this week.
