A miracle! Cherry shaped like a duck!

It’s 95°F (35°C) in Chicago right now, and the ducks are having a bit of a hard time, with Daphne doing some gular breathing and all the babies sequestered in the shade. I hope they’ll be okay.

As a sign from Ceiling Cat, reader Rick just found a cherry shaped like a duck, and sent me a photo with these words:

I was having a snack and when I reached into my bowl of cherries I found a duck and immediately thought of you.
Here’s one photo:
Does this mean my ducks will be all right?

    I think it looks more like a bunny.

      I was thinking it looked like a Peep (those marshmallow chicks). But I am obviously a heretic.

        I thought the same thing. A red Peep. Very heretical.

    It’s no Virgin Mary appearing on your grilled cheese sandwich, but it is cute!

    Looks more like a Kiwi to me Jerry. But then a cherry shaped like a Kiwi is great!
