I came, I saw, I conquered and then Snowpuss and Gidley happened. It was right out of the twilight zone. I knew we had animals, wallabies and birds, a few echidnas, even saw a platypus once, but they weren’t pets, and didn't enter my world until that day. I was quite happy being an Argonaut and paddling about enjoying myself or wasting time, it really depends on who you listen to, me or Snowpuss.
It was a sunny, bright and totally awesome day, a proper kid’s day. The water shone, the fish were at the bottom, and no where near my fishing line and the clouds were enjoying a holiday, as I was enjoying the day. Then it happened the forest absolutely erupted and a light so bright, I squeezed my eyes shut and thought I was hallucinating –you know the word –well look it up – I saw strange things, weird, right out of nightmares. Two little cats –oops, he frowns if I call him a cat. Better to be safe and call him snowpuss –he’s a little person with fur, like an animal but he can speak, actually he has a better vocabulary than I do but I’m a kid and that’s different. He has a brother, no not a bother –well, the jury’s out on that one, no a brother, but they look different. You can tell that Gidley is different –looks incredibly smart and Snowpuss looks like everybody’s favourite Uncle. Has a white beard like Santa, and Gidley has Zorro’s mask.
