Hi, Percy here. Sorry I didn’t talk to you last week. Maybe I slept through it.
This week’s been very busy (apart from when Mummy’s been out all day, when I sleep a lot).
Firstly, we’ve had some very interesting food that we don’t usually have. There were long thin crispy things called bean sprouts mixed in with cut up peppers and carrots and cabbage. Mummy said it was a packet of stir-fry vegetables from the shop that was going cheap. It didn’t make any noises that I could hear, though. I’m not keen on peppers, although I ate quite a few of the red ones. I liked the sprouty things and the cabbage a lot, and of course I love carrot. Mummy doesn’t let me have much carrot as she says it makes me fat. Anyway, we also had half a piece of baby corn, which was delicious. That’s only for treats, too. And we had some fennel bits, which we do often get as a treat because Mummy loves it too, and we get the bits she trims off when she makes her dinners with it.
Then Oscar got a new bed! It’s red and bouncy and he really likes it. I told Midge about it when we had floor time on Friday and he sniffed and looked cross. When I asked why, he said “I didn’t like it.” It turned out it was his Christmas present, but he didn’t like it so Mummy gave him back his tent which made him happy again. Now he knows Oscar’s delighted with the red bed I think he’s feeling jealous. Mummy can’t win with those two.
The big news is that Kevin broke his tooth again. It was only half broken, but Mummy spotted that it was also wider apart from the other one than it should have been. Apparently Fred did that once, and she was really worried and took him to the vet, who gave him an xray to see what was going on, and he went to sleep forever. Then when Mummy heard that he just had a bruise between his teeth, which caused a swelling, she was even more upset. So when she saw Kevin’s, she knew he had a bruise as well as a break, and just waited for the swelling to go down, which it did the very next day. And now the tooth has grown back too.
But Mummy did some thinking about why Kevin should have broken the same tooth again, since he only did it in November, and she decided he might be bumping into something like Fred did. She’s moved his water bottle and dish and cage wear about so there’s something soft when he comes down and turns the corner from his loft. She thinks he might have caught it on his bottle spout. He’s not entirely happy with the new layout, but he says it’s probably safer, and Mummy’s very wise.
She is, and she’s looking after us all, even Midge, who didn’t like his bed. Midge is a funny boy. I like him, though.
