We have known for some time that Shest is ‘a bit different’. What with his little digital sounding outbursts not dissimilar to R2D2, persistent bothering of Osem who’s three times his size and a painful proclivity to scale legs using whatever he can get his claws into (jeans, leggings, pajamas or skin), he’s certainly an entertaining addition to the family.
He raised the bar a couple of nights ago though when he got in the bath with Jeremy. With barely a twitch of his whiskers, he had a little swim and then by way of a very calm chirrup, asked please could he be removed.
He wasn’t keen on the hair dryer, but bearing in mind he’s still only the size of a guinea pig, it didn’t take much time to dry off, and he continues to be far more curious than he should be around the washing-up bowl.
