So Harry is a goner. How many times have I heard that? Harry’s all washed up, finished. It was mousecrap then and it’s mousecrap now. I’ve heard it all before. Wrong every time. Harry always bounces back. How many times have I said that, Harry always bounces back and I’m always right. If I had … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 2: So Harry is a Goner

When the crowds were gone Porky sometimes liked to survey his domain, Casino Byzantium. Others might call it Porky's Palace and Porky didn't mind that, but in his own mind it was always Casino Byzantium. Casino Byzantium was situated in a large converted warehouse in London's docklands. The original building had some of the grandeur … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 4: Casino Byzantium
A year after I started living with the Williamses they moved from their council house to a tower block on a council estate in east London. Their new flat was on the twentieth floor. It was a two-bedroomed flat. My cage was in the living room. One good thing was that there was a great … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 5: Harry Meets Big Cheese
It is imperative that I leave a Testament. I must set down my thoughts during those times when my mind is clear. The things I will write about will be a warning.

The fun started when the Williamses went away on holiday. Two weeks in Benidorm. Chelsea was gutted about not seeing me for two weeks as you would expect. "You be a good boy when I'm away Harry.

Porky lay on a large sofa in his office in Casino Byzantium. He was studying a bank of eight CCTV screens on the opposite wall. He was in a thoughtful mood. Some X-Pets had it easy.

Soon after that night, which Porky now thought of as The Night, Porky had started to get a vague feeling that something was wrong. On The Night there had been so much happening that he had had no time for suspicions. Nor had he had any reason for them. There had been so much excitement … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 12: The Big Night Begins
In this Testament I must write of my one and only meeting with The Master. I had been given an appointment on a Wednesday morning at 11.30am and I was punctual. I was recognised by security and admitted without any particular precautions. Everything was friendly and informal. I introduced myself to The Master's PA, a … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 13: A Meeting With The Master
I'm sliding down a grassy hill. I'm trying to grab hold of grass, twigs, anything. This is crazy. Why did I let big cheese talk me into this? It sounded like a good idea at the time. Foxhunting. I'd had a call from Big Cheese. I was at Club Magik watching the Hammers play Man … Continue reading Harry Says Chapter 14: Harry Goes Hunting
