Occassional Guest Animals, 2.

This animal is a Flappie, (see the bottom of the page), known as Mr Flappie around these parts. He lives on the Feeders computer desktop, a widget we're told, and frankly he garners rather more attention than Fritz and I think he warrants. He gets fed, and tickled and generally admired, and does little in return except chorttle and (usually) smile. As you see here, he can however have a nasty temper.

He's supposed to "evolve", but I've researched this and clearly nobody knows how, or into what, he will evolve. So the whole endeavour seems somewhat futile to me. And, the icing on the cake, he makes a crowing noise at sunrise, and emits a wolf-like call and sunset, altogether a wretched nuisance in our book. Anyway, as of today our Flappie registers 14 points on his heart meter - good or bad we do not, and may never know.
Here's to a better guest animal when the time for number 3 comes around....
