Mr and Mrs Smith, two fleas from Walthamstow have told all about their holiday plans for this year.
Mr Smith, a small Flea, known locally for his outlandish ideas and plans said: 'Me and the Mrs need a holiday. It is not easy being a flea you know. We are up at 6 every morning at the circus. There is not really that much of a career choice for Fleas. We really want to train at Salman Rushdie's Flea Circus, but you have to be at the top of your game to get in there, so we are just training. No, we really fancied going something special this year, so we are heading over to Tiddles the Cat this afternoon. There is often a connecting flight every hour or so, we are going on Tuesday. We are just going for the week. We can afford that much. This Credit Crunch has an effect on everything you know'
Diane Jones, who has known the Smith's for a while now told us: 'Those two are up at the crack of dawn most days, working on their routines. It is quite impressive, but I have told them that if they don't take the time of soon they never will'
Mr Jones told us: 'We really wanted to go to Elephant this year, but we just cannot afford it, and the world is a big place for fleas wanting to make something of themselves'.
We wish them luck. Cat is known for a poor tolerance for Fleas, and many fleas die on holiday, due to changes in fur density, and the much more fastidious levels of Hygiene that Cats have when compared to Dogs.
