Mr Man

Wednesday morning we said goodbye to Mister Man, he was 17 years old.

He'd not been well for a while now. Being predominantly white haired and pale skinned he contracted cancer on the tip of his right ear. Last year the vet did a partial amputation of his ear in an attempt to heal it. The vet also told us that he had a heart murmur and prescribed tablets he had to take every day.

Despite all this he ruled the roost and put everyone in their place of pecking order. He kept laps warm and was company while you cooked in the kitchen. In the garden many a bird made the mistake of looking at him and thinking they were safe.

On Sundays he would dawdle to our neighbours over the road to get his weekly titbits left over from their roast dinner.

It's strange without him around and even Missus and Harry are behaving differently.

Mr Man, we will miss you.
