Kevin here! Percy wanted to write about the funny smells Mummy’s been making, which I thought wasn’t very kind of him, and I wanted to write about my bed. And I’m the webmaster, so I won.
Mummy gave me my bed back last week, after she took most of my other cagewear to be washed, and put my purple one back saying “here you are Kevin – you can keep warm in this old thing till the others are dry.”
THIS OLD THING??????
This is my lovely purple (aubergine is it’s official colour) snugglesac which Colman and I had when we first came to live with Mummy. It was like an old friend back in my life – in fact it sort of reminded me of Colman. I think Mummy started to realise when she took this picture of me – I’d gone straight into it as soon as she put it down, and then she started giving me strange looks until she took the photo.
It was lovely and dreamy in there. Oh, and that’s a beetroot stain on my leg. So there I was dozing away, and Mummy looked through her old photos to see if I really had had it before, and she found it had been mine all the way from 2012, when Colman and I moved in, to 2014, when we got the snowman cagewear. I think Hector had it after that, but Mummy said, actually Humphrey and Hector were the first people to have the purple and grey cagewear, because she got it for the grey cage they lived in when they first arrived.
Well, that makes sense, because Col and I had the grey cage when we arrived. And we had that cagewear all the way through to 2014. I think we had the grey cage because Hec and Humph had moved into the cage that used to be Hugo and Victor’s when Victor moved in with Fred. Then Humphrey and Hector fell out with each other, and Mummy moved Victor (who by now was living with the babies that were Dylan and Dougall) in with Humphrey, and Hector into the grey cage on his own and we came upstairs to the run (which is lovely). It’s all very complicated and I don’t know how Mummy manages to keep tabs on it all. Now Midge and I have the upstairs run, Oscar has Hugo & Victor’s cage, and Percy has Fred & George’s cage. But Percy lived in the grey cage when he first arrived as Dylan and Dougall were still in Fred & George’s cage.
But the other thing Mummy found when she found those photos were lots of short moving pictures of Colman and me running around on the kitchen floor. And then she found a lot more, including of Fred & George, and Dylan & Dougall and everyone. If you’d like to see those, they’re on our YouTube channel!
Anyway, the purple snugglesac is mine again now. She said the purple and grey one is for emergency only, and the purple and grey tunnel had to be thrown away. But I’m keeping my favourite one, probably forever 🙂
