As I promised last week, I am going to give you a peek at my home life in Harrot Reef Manor. The manor house is a huge yellow Victorian with white gingerbread. It has hardwood floors in some rooms that are so slippery that, if I run fast enough and then lean just right, I can slide right into the next room. I love this game because it makes my charge, Nikki, and our roommate, Heather, laugh.
The most important cupboard in the house is the “The Magic Cupboard”. This is where my food and treats are kept. All I have to do is sit in front of it and stare at Nikki, and she will feed me. Of course, if that doesn’t work I can always use my magical powers (as long as nobody’s around)!
In the afternoon, Heather gets my brush out and calls, “Brush, Harry, brush”. I know then that she will brush my long, luxurious fur and I will trill and purr. When she is done I head-butt her hand and rub my cheek against hers.
I can hardly wait until after dinner when I hear Nikki pick up the latest Agatha Christie mystery that we are reading together. She calls me to the living room where we share the purple chair that is soft and cuddly. The crackling of the fire in the fireplace is soothing as I listen intently to the sound of Nikki’s voice reading just for me.
Well, that’s an average day in my life at Harrot Reef Manor. I hope that you’ll come to visit us soon.
Next week: Please join us for an interview with Sir Aslan, Harry’s grandfather.
