True Colours Thursday - PURPLE!

For this weeks colour, I have a tale of a bear & his encounter with a beligerate mouse to relate!

This is Prince with his PURPLE 'bits & pieces' - all too glitzy / Liberace' for my personal taste but...He initially, arrived in Dreamingspires with the Showmen of St Giles Fair, two Septembers ago.
Mother apparently, found him hanging out there, on a stall as a prize!!!
She tried her luck, @ drawing a winning ticket and surprised herself greatly when she did so
Heading home, with her new friend, the day turned very wet, so, she christened him Prince, I understand there is some sort of connection with a song entitled of all things, 'PURPLE rain'!!!

Moving on, all went well for Prince till later that Autumn, when one morning Mother discovered that his left PURPLE paw been brutally savaged...
Several cushion corners had suffered a similar fate too!
The tell tale evidence left by the culprit suggested a rodent intruder!
I am most relieved, that I was not in the household @ the time, as my vintage mohair would have made a far superior, more nutritious snack for the obviously hungry little critter.
Mother never fond of vermin, was horrified and took immediate drastic action - a corpse resulted shortly there afterwards.
I suggest the squeamish look away now, even though I am only showing a small image to minimise the horror....I will add, no PURPLE vestments were worn @ Mr Mouses funeral!
But, Prince made a full recovery after minor surgery, in the form of a stitch or two to his paw.

Love ya lots,

I agree, Prince is a little Liberace-esque. But he certainly fits in with this week's purple. Yeeeaak! Even a dead mouse makes me want to climb up on a chair. I'm really glad he didn't get you!
