There is no reliable record of their having been here before 1975, and subsequent scholarship is sketchy, at best. They are without gender, and reproduce, it would seem, by a process that is somewhat ectoplasmic, remotely parthenogenetic. The children are adorable. There is more than a little of the "spark of joy" in their aspect, and in their demeanor as well. But age, as with their human neighbors, presses heavily on the Clupkitz nature, and that which was delightful and sparky, oft turns benighted & snarky. Nonetheless, they remain (in the main) charming comrades, busying themselves at important tasks with a creative bent, bathing regularly, and discussing their love of Yiddish and Japanese in the most praiseworthy terms, though it does not always sound that way in Esperanto. And the barking is really not so bothersome as one might expect.
