We had Grass!

Percy here.  Not much happened this week, except we said goodbye to Auntie Dawn’s Atticus, which was very sad.  We’re just waiting for news of whether she found someone else needing a good home yesterday.

The most exciting thing that happened to us was that Mummy brought in some fresh grass from the garden for us.  Here’s Midge enjoying his (and Kevin with his in the other photo).

Midge-grass

Mummy’s still sad

Kevin here today.  Percy did a jolly good job last week, didn’t he?  He asked me to take over today because we came out of mourning on Friday and he wasn’t sure what to say.

Neither am I, of course.  It seems a long time since Dylan left us to go over the Rainbow Bridge, but it seems Mummy’s only really been realising it over the past couple of weeks.  She told me she couldn’t believe he’d gone and it was because he missed Dougall so much, and I think for the first four weeks she was really numb, you know?  And she said for the last week or so she’s been crying because he’s gone, and she missed his geeky face looking at at her, and him trying to bite her nose – just playfully, of course.

I miss him when we’re out on the grass.  There are only the four of us, which means we have lovely big runs, and because Oscar and Midge can’t be left together I stay with Midge, and Percy runs around with Oscar.  Oscar still tries to shake the fence down between us.  He’s a scamp.  I get on fine with Midge, unless he’s trying to be bossy.  But I miss Dylan, and I miss Colman too, when we’re outside most of all.  But I reckon they’re having a great time over the Rainbow Bridge and Col hasn’t got any arthuritis to slow him down, so that’s good.  I’m having the nice biscuits he had for his arthuritis, one after cuddle time every day, and they’re very tasty.  I’m not having tubejuice any more, which is good too.  I wish Mummy would sort out the top of the ramp tunnel, though, it seems to need some glue or something.

Anyway, it just shows that seven weeks may sound a long time but someone very wise knew what they were doing when they made that our tradition.

Mummy took some videos of us on Friday and said she’d put them on our Youtube page.  So if she has, she’ll tell you how to get there at the end of this message.

Have a nice week.  Let’s hope the sun shines and the grass isn’t too wet. 🙂

This week

Hello.  Percy here. [Kevin is checking]

2016-03-25 13.12.38

 

The sun has been shining.  We went on the grass a few days ago [Saturday].  It was nice.  We were in a bigger run.  I liked it.  I didn’t need to eat much.  I was full from the grass Mummy brought in earlier.  [I think she’d been to the other garden.  It was a huge pile she brought back for each of us, she said she forgot there’s only four of us to eat it now.]

Mummy went outside yesterday.  She came in and went out lots of times.  One time she brought grass in.  She said the grass was too wet to go out.  She was sad.  Outside is nice, but grass is the same.  I don’t want to get wet feet.

Mummy says Oscar has had a person-allity trans-plant.  I don’t know what she means.  He does seem very cuddly with her.  And he doesn’t make such a fuss about being picked up.  I don’t think he’s bitten her recently either.  That’s good.  I don’t understand why he bit her.  She’s a nice mummy.

Mummy took my old cage away.  Oscar says that means she’s not bringing anyone else home.  Well, that’s good if nobody needs a nice home.  It’s very nice here.  I’m glad Mummy brought me home.  What else should I say, Kevin? [That’s fine Percy, you can stop now.]

I’ll stop now.  See you next week.

Did you have a nice Easter?

We did!

Version 2 (7)

Mummy put us out in the garden for a couple of hours on Friday, me with Midge and Percy with Oscar.  She’s been giving us some grass from the garden for ages, so we shouldn’t get upset tummies from the change of diet.  And we were only outside for a couple of hours, anyway.  But now I’m going to hand you over to Percy, your new correspondent.

Version 2 (8)

 

Hello.  I’m Percy.  Thank you for voting for me.  Kevin says I just have to tell you what we’ve been doing.

We went outside on the grass on Friday.  It was a little scary.  I hadn’t been on the grass before.  Mummy put me down in a run with Oscar.  We grumbled at each other a bit.  I wanted to eat grass and hide from the huge sky above us.  Oscar wanted to rumble at everybody.  He tried to pull the fence down too.  I got on with eating.  I don’t know what Oscar did.  I think he ended up eating too.  I said hello to Kevin.  I had only seen Kevin in passing before.  He’s nice.  I would say that even if he wasn’t reading this.  He’s showing me where to put my feet to make it work.  It’s very complicated.  Here’s Kevin.

Kevin here.  That was very good, Percy, you’ll soon get the hang of it.

Mummy gave me a special message for Roland.  Mummy says she’s taken a photo of the message in your card from last year, as she planted the card in the wildflower garden.  Apparently the card had seeds embedded in it.  Anyway, she’s kept your request to be a ninjineer and she’s thinking about it.  And she’s marked where she’s planted the card so she can take photos of it grows.

Look, I don’t know what it means either.  I’m just passing on the message.

I hope we can go out in the garden again this week.

My daily grind

I thought you might like to know what I do all day.  I’m very busy, of course.

A typical day at this time of year goes something like this.

Oscar looks
Oscar looks

The sky gets lighter in the window above our heads and the sun comes up and we can see it’s bright at theother end of the kitchen where we live.  That’s good, that means it’s sunny.  I have a drink and a bite to eat, and tell Dougall it’s his turn in our nice snugglesac, because it’s my turn in the hammock.  If I’m lucky I get to snooze before Oscar comes biting the bars and disturbing me.

Mummy has two gardens

I always thought this was Mummy’s garden, but she’s got another one.  She disappears to go there on Saturday mornings and sometimes other times too.  This week she took all the nice little kale plants that were growing in pots with her.  There was something else in pots too, broccoli, I think she said.  We’ve got kale growing in our garden, I was in a run next to it on Friday and Saturday.  I wonder why she’s got more in another garden. Continue reading “Mummy has two gardens”

Oops. I forgot

Dylan here.

Sorry, I forgot to post a post today.  I’ve been out in the garden eating grass.  I do a  lot of checking up on Oscar and Midge while I’m eating grass, making sure they are doing their job properly.  Midge is pretty good.  Oscar comes over and pokes his nose into my business.  I don’t like that.  I’m feeling hungry a lot at the moment.  Mummy wants to know why I’ve lost weight, but I can’t tell her.  I just have.

Here’s a picture of me with Colman and Kevin the other day.

I’m a little behind…

… in my preparation for the big event in April – the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

Dylan at 4 monthsIt’s mainly because Mummy has been busy on her computers.  She bought another one the other week because her book was running too slow on the old computer.  I told her she should give the old one to me, but she seems to use them both at once, which just isn’t fair.  But then, I suppose if you work as hard as Mummy does, you need to have two computers to work on at once.  She’s been very busy on her book.  She told me she has to get it all finished before the nice weather comes and we can go out on the grass.  She likes to be in the garden with us when we’re outside.  We like to have her around too, just in case.

It won’t be long till we’re outside again, she says.  Just a few more weeks.
