About the emu

The flightless emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae) is the only extant member of the genus Dromarius.

Its natural habitat is Australia.
This spesific emu (Emmy, that is) is situated somewhere in Europe.

Emus can travel long distances at an economical trot.
Emmy the Emu can stride quite easily along the streets in a very economical and quite hasty walk. She is not very fond of trotting. If necessary, she will sprint, but she would rather not.

Emus are opportunistically nomadic and may travel long distances to find food; they feed on a variety of plants and insects, but have been known to go for weeks without food.
Emmy is very much the same, though she prefers not to eat insects, and weeks without food is a bit extreme.

Emus drink infrequently, but take in copious fluids when the opportunity arises.
As will Emmy.

Emus will sit in water and are also able to swim.
Emmy wants to be a mermaid. Or maby a humpback whale. When she does not long to fly.

They are curious birds who are known to follow and watch other animals and humans.
Very much so.

Emus do not sleep continuously at night but in several short stints sitting down.
Emmy is addicted to her bed. At least in the morning and some hours past midday. She is nocturnal, but due to the fact that she is a working emu, she has to be in bed around midnight and be out of it by seven the next morning. Alas.

And that was a little introduction to Emmy the Emu. Not your everyday emu, but not so different either.
