This week the flashback comes from August 2008 and is called:
My Scruffy Rat.
When we were kittens, one of our very first toys was a black rat. I told Flynn it was mine, and it was and still is my most favourite toy in the whole world. I call him Scruffy Rat, but I don't think mum knows his name because she calls him Fred Bear. Silly mum, surely she can see he's not a bear.
I like to chew him and bunnykick him. It's lots of fun. He is the only toy I have really loved.
He doesn't look much like a rat any more. Most of his black furrs have gone, and one ear and both eyes, and all his stuffing is coming out, but I still love him. Mum bought some new black mousies that looked like Scruffy when he was new, but they aren't my Scruffy Rat and no way am I going to play with them.
Note: Scruffy was buried with Eric so he can still bunny kick him at the Rainbow Bridge.
