Bongo Fury Mister Zoot Horn Rollo

Post by Zoundz on Thu Aug 14, 2014 7:17 am

Gutted to finally be writing Rollo's obituary. He was a lovely boy, and a favourite with most visitors. For a while he was my only black - and people loved him. He was also a very snuggly, happy boy - throughout his life, and it's a constant source of regret that I never managed to breed from him.

He developed a small lump on his nose after a squabble with his cagemate Funky, and I left it, thinking it was an abscess. I was watching it and trying to get it to peak to clean it out - but it didn't, and then I had a sinking feeling that it may not be an abscess at all. We took him to the vet, who tried to lance it, but didn't wake him up - as she found that it was indeed a tumour.

He left us on the 1st August, but it's been a bit too hard to write about him, as he was such a favourite. He will be very much missed - my sparkly black lumpkin.

Run free Rollo - King Rollo - you deserve better <3

Mister Zoot Horn Rollo - hit that long lunar note, and let it float...

For him - no song lyrics - just the theme tune to King Rollo - which, incidentally, was written by the wonderful Duncan Lamont, who I am privileged to call a friend.
