Pink hippopotamus



This is the pink hippo, it is about the size of my thumb. It occurred to me that it might actually be a pink pig but Ramona says it is a hippopotamus so I am not going to say anything.



She has learned to fly up onto the window screens and hang there while she hunts bugs. She weighs so little she doesn't even make a mark. Good thing. By the time she is bigger, bugs will be passe.



After some ferocious running around they settle down for a nap. They like the red chair.



But on a cool rainy Caturday, the best thing is to snuggle up in the clubhouse. This is a footstool with blankets over it. Brendan watches TV from the top at night. Underneath is a polar fleece blanket. Cats really loves having secret places of their own.



"Did you want me for something?"

No, Harper, just a quick photo. Go back to sleep.

Hippo is well loved. Funny how she is attached to it. My son had a mouse that he called Kitty, so you can have a pig called hippo. Love the secret hideout!

Ooohh! If only I can jump like that on a screen. I would jump everyday. But san makes me walk on a leash and we don't have trees to jump on even at the parks. and of course I am too heavy to jump like purrty ramona. I lurve my hideouts too. Can't tell you where cos then won't be a secret..hee

I don't like to think what would happen if I jumped on that screen like Ramona. I think there would be a big ripping noise...

Harper is such a cuddly boy!

The hippo/piggy is adorable. I'm wondering, like J, where you got it from as well!
