Something I Was Thinking About Bagpuss Yesterday


Bagpuss, dear Bagpuss
Old fat furry cat puss
I wonder
If you knew I'd picked up your 2005 'The Complete Bagpuss' DVD
To save and trap a vole
In a promotional mug
Which my first publishers made
To go with my first book
In the days that publishers
Had money
For frivolous stuff like that
Would you have yawned approvingly
Or been kind of pissed off
And given me a good twatting
With one of your giant fuck off new rave paws?

OMG a dead vole doesn't sit well with my stomach this early lol PS - Have u got a dog yet?!

It looks like a live vole to me. (Though I'm more an expert on rats and mice, dead/alive/half and half).

Liz said...

ohhhhh is a vole like a rat? cute :)

Tom said...

Ah, Liz, I love that you live in a country where a vole is exotic. It's far smaller than a rat: like a more prosaic, small-eared mouse, if anything.

I love voles, they are a much more interesting 'present' than mice. The way they squeal like banshee's when you try to catch them!
