Yes, I saw him just the other day and he was hopping mad that Michael and crew had forgotten to take him with them to the Himalyas.

He was leaning angrily to the left and then to the right ranting "well he took those bloody frogs with him across the Andes but did he think to hoist this humble gerbil onto his shoulder and stride on up to Everest???????

Being a mascot is no easy task, you know, especially when one has to adapt from being a quadroped to a unopede!!!!

I did try to reassure the poor creature that we still valued him greatly and hoped he would continue in his role as official mascot for our Royal Society for the Protection of Michael Palin....
