What does a Johnnie and a Mogwai have in Common?

What does a Johnnie and a Mogwai have in Common?

There are only three rules that you need to follow in order to care for a Mogwai:
  1. Never expose them to bright lights, especially sunlight.
  2. Do not get them wet, that means no bathing the mogwai.
  3. Most importantly, DO NOT FEED them after midnight.
