Al knows that his friends are having fun
especially since they are only adopted by awesome friends!
but he is ALWAYS happy to hear
about all of the fun they are up to....
He just got a message from his buddy Monty:
Just wanted to send along a picture of myself with my new friends. Starting at the top is Nosy (cow nosed ray); to my right is Blue (a polka dot cat); then Sealy, Baby Echo (owl), Sophie (Giraffe - although Parker had her since birth, she's quite old and frail now and you can barely tell what she once was. But she is wise and kind and she has been very welcoming); and last Rexy (T Rex - he's very very loud, but nice). We all sleep together at night so I'm not so lonely. We also hang out together during the day and get into lots of mischief. There are 2 cats that live here and we find ourselves taunting them endlessly. They seem to just want to carry us off and chew us up, but we are always saved at the last minute by one of the humans.
I feel quite comfy here in my new home with my new friends. They are not monsters and could never replace you but I'm doing well. I have told them all about you and they think by my stories that you sound so marvellous. I hope you are also doing well my friend.
So many hugs.
