I’m probably over-thinking things, but sometimes I wonder how much the aliens can do in their costume, that mimics cats/dogs. For instance, we see them eat.. but is that the way they normally eat? Do they have mouth? Could they cough up a hairball? Apparently, that’s where I drew the line.
Not sure how regional/widespread the Spencer’s chain is, or how prevalent they still are in locals malls, but man… that was the highlight of any of the dreaded trips to the mall I was dragged to while in high school. Not a mallrat by any stretch of the imagination… but I’d gladly peruse that weird store.
