Carmine, we have a problem
The sleepy creatures are multiplying!

Darnell, our little girl!
Snuggle bunny nuzzling
Do you like your new collar sweetie?

Carmine, I'm tired of it
There are thousands!
Thousands of them!
Would you like to take a sleepy creature home?
Never really awake...

Darnell, I miss that sleeper
We couldn't keep her
She sleeps between us,
Keeps us warm!
