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.

The love of a good nip toy is so hard to find. Hang on to Scruffy Rat.

We know Flynn would not hide your favorite Scruffy! We are glad you got him back.

Simba said...

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

William said...

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

The Island Cats said...

Aw, Scuffy looks like a lot of fun. We hope you never lose him again.

Sparkle said...

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!

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.

Our hairy slobbery sister is like that with her BooBoo. Mommy and Daddy gots her BooBoo when she first came to lives with us and she was crying at night missing her Mommy and her brothers. She takes very good care of BooBoo.
Me is impressed that yous still has Scruffy. Me has killed all my toys.
Kisses

So glad you found your mouse friend. You must have been very lonely without it. Better keep him close to you from now on. Take care and have a great week end.
