When they reached the lake people were becoming aware of Nero's sneezes. Mac ignored them, sneezes were simply a natural thing and this was what a dolphin could do when sneezing and sniffling simply happened. Better having water raining down than an elephant blowing wind all over the room! Mac could feel his itching nose subside, and hoped his friends had better luck. He was already running down with a bit of snot and had to use his sleeve to clean himself up; it was sloppy, but all he had.
"I'm so, so sorry you guys got caught up in that pollen... me being a black cat, I'm just bad lucky, huh?" he said, half-jokingly. "By now I think you've met my friend Nero, guys. He's one of my best friends."
The blowhole from Nero was something Mac thought was rather cool. He could erupt at any time, and the black cat had to admit it was a fun sight. Though the last thing he'd want to tell his friends that, heh, out of embarrassment.
