Things that go nibble in the night

Rupert: The other night I was all warm and snuggly in my bed, having warm and snuggly dreams.

Sasha: You do look all warm and snuggly there in your blanket.

Rupert: It's still all coldy winter here, and because I still haven't put on a lot of weight, I apparently resemble something called a "skinny malinky". So every night our human tucks me into my bed with my blankie and kisses me goodnight to make sure I stay nice and warm.

Sasha: And if you get cold then you can't sleep, and then you spend all night noisily licking your toes and waking up everyone else.

Rupert: I didn't sleep so well the other night, even though I was all warm and snuggly. I had a nightmare.

Sasha: What was it about?

Rupert: Well, I dreamed I was slowly being eaten alive by some sort of short, hairy, frog-like creature.

Sasha: Sounds scary.

Rupert: It was - it started on my blanket and was slowly working its way up to me.

Sasha: Well I'm sure you have nothing to worry about - it was just a dream. Things like that almost never happen in real life.

Phew - thank goodness it was only a dream! Very kind of you to recreate the scene for us Sasha - you're such a thoughtful big sister!

And Rupert, we'd just like to say that you look very dapper in your red jammies! FH was squealing when she saw you - our ears are still ringing!
