As you know, sometimes I like to write about my 2-foots. Usually, I write to tell you how stupid they are, but today, I'm writing to tell you that I am very worried about one of them.
Today, it's the birthday of the one with no fur on the top of his head. HE IS 51 YEARS OLD!!! Imagine that? 51 YEARS!!!
It is obvious to me that no animal is designed to live for so long, and that he is sure to snuff it at any moment. This worries me for several reasons:-
1. He is the only one who can work the big metal box on wheels
2. We need the big metal box on wheels to take us to see Auntie Francis (the best bunny vet in the world) when we are not well
3. They use the metal box to go get food from the Sainsbury's allotment
4. One 2-foot on her own could not POSSIBLY give me and Flopsy Girl enough attention.
We have decided to try not to get him too excited, as we don't want him to have a heart attack, so we will probably just lay down quietly today. What worries us though is that he must have done something bad yesterday, as Flopsy Girl overheard them saying that they are going to the pub this lunchtime. I do hope that the strain of being punished will not be too much for him to take.
Flopsy Girl says that if he does snuff it, she will help to dig a hole in the garden to stick him in, as we don't want the other one to overdo things (she will need all her energy to look after us).
Current Mood: thoughtful

I wouldn't worry too much Dandy, your other 2-foot would be sure to find someone to help with the allotment and everything else- don't forget she was very quick to find another 2-foot with a metal box to get you to Auntie Francis the other week!
She would probably be very glad to get the chance to get a better 2-foot companion than that idiot she has at the moment. As long as you are careful with the bonding process it could all work out for the best!
In fact, maybe you should try bonding them both with another 2-foot now, so that if he does expire you will still have two of them at your disposal, the new one could help with digging the hole and think of all the extra attention you could get in the meantime!

Melster, that is sound advice. If anybun has a spare 2-foot, please be sure to let me know.

don't worry he will be ok yet for another couple of years!
I was listening to my 2 foot talking the other day and she said that people can live up to eighty years old, hope this cheers you up!
