The Love of my Life

This is my most favourite toy in the world. It is Scruffy Rat more often known as Fred Bare. I am very much in love with Scruffy and have known him since I was a kitten. He came to live with us when I was only a few weeks old and we don't like to be parted.

He likes a good rassle with me.

When the Beans went on holiday a couple of years ago he came to live in our purrison with me but he got lost. I didn't find him for about 6 months and was very sad. Dad found him in the winter hiding in the wood pile. He thinks I must have been flinging him around and he fell down between the logs. I would never hurt Scruffy. I think Flynn must have hidden him there.

I asked Flynn if he knew anything about it, but he couldn't answer me.

  5. I bet Fred Bare is a suitable nickname for your rat. How nice that you have had him almost all of your life.

  6. Eric, it's wonderful that you have a lifelong toy. Better still that your mum didn't send Scruffy away because he seems "old."

  8. There are some toys here that I've had since kittenhood, but I don't have anywhere near the same relationship with them that you do with your toy, Eric!

  9. Eric, Fred Bare (we love the pun!) must have nine lives too...we destroy our toys fairly efficiently and we're amazed he's lasted this long.
