In a bizarre turn of events, local Felties were informed that according to many human beings, they not only have no feelings, but do not truly exist.
“It’s downright sad,” said the mayor of Feltie Forest, Harley Roadhopper. “We create them out of the goodness of our hearts, and they turn around and pretend we aren’t real. Talk about ungrateful!”
“I think it’s disgraceful,” commented Justine the sheep। "This will mean even less respect for Feltie Folk all over the world. I mean, we know humans need help, but for Feltie’s sake, aren’t they confused about their own importance!”
As Agata Plopple wisely commented, “Thank goodness our existence is not dependent on their idea of reality.”
The mayor has called a town meeting to discuss this improbable problem. He is encouraging all concerned Feltie citizens to attend, particularly those who have a lot of experience traveling throughout the human world.
