Hello, Percy here. I hope you enjoyed the posts from Bertie and Roscoe in the past couple of weeks.
I’ve been sitting comfortably on my pile of hay, thinking deep thoughts. Sometimes I sit in my tent, or my tunnel, or on my bed. I now have both beds. The newest one, which Midge and I got last autumn came back from the cleaners and I slept in it for a week, because it was Midge’s favourite, but I haven’t slept in it since.
Sometimes I go over to the place where Bertie’s cage starts and sit and watch what he’s up to. But then I go back and sleep on my pile of hay. Bertie is funny because he rarely sleeps in his bed. He sleeps half in and half out. Sometimes he puts his head on the bed and his body on the floor, and most times he puts his body in the bed and leans his head over the side. As long as he’s comfortable!
I don’t know why I don’t fancy sleeping in either of Midge’s and my beds at the moment. Maybe they just remind me of him. Maybe it’s because he’s not sleeping on top of the tunnel, facing me. It’s only just gone three weeks since he left us, but it seems like months.
Then again, it’s a year since Kevin left us, and that seems like forever. Sometimes I wonder where he is and then I remember. I do that with Midge too. It’s funny to think I’ve had my lump all this time since Kevin left us. Dr Sally thinks I’m a wonder. I think that’s a good thing.
I’m fed up with my lump, though. Mummy always gives me a big cuddle when I have to have my meds but I’m fed up with having my meds. The chewy ones are okay though. I find it easier to bite things that stay in chunks rather than things that wrap around my teeth, like lettuce. Mummy’s noticed I leave a lot of my breakfast. I can’t really be bothered with it. Bertie usually finishes it off, I think. I like the herbs, though. And the strawberry leaves. And my special pellets.
Why does time go fast, and then go slow? Why does it go fast when I’m sleeping, or when the sun’s out? Why is there more time for cuddles in the morning than in the evening? I don’t know the answer to any of these questions. If you know, do tell me.
