Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Every Friend! It's me, Violette, again, and I have more fun stuff to share with you this week! There was a lot of excitement over here last weekend. For a start, #1 rode me again, for the first time since she had her bad knee injury at the end of August last year. Look:

I did dance around for a bit and #1 and Ms. S suspect there may be a zone of discomfort around my saddle, so they're going to try another saddle on me.

Then, Mr. E worked me on the long reins!

And after Ms. S had shown her how, it was #1's turn:

And guess who I got to see close-up again?

He was better-behaved this time. Actually, I thought he was pretty cute…

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Everyone! I showed you on Monday the fun I had pulling Mr. E around the sand school. Here is another shot of me:

I'm pretty good at kicking up the dust! I'm glad I wasn't behind me!

And here I am when I was getting a haircut from Mr. E, whilst #1 was supervising Violette having her treats. Nothing like being a family!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Hello, Dear Friends! How are you all? We are well and enjoying some glorious sunshine even though it is still a little on the chilly side.

When the weather is good, I love to have my meals "Al Fresco" in the cat run, and #1 is happy to oblige! Here I am, waiting patiently:


This morning, there I was, basking peacefully in the sunshine on the cat tree in the kitchen…

…when "someone" decided to spoil my good time, as our dear friend Daisy always says:

Make no mistake, this is not a dangle. This is a swat!

This, on the other paw, is a dangle!

And what do you think of this move?

Always working to achieve perfection!

Manly Monday

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I have been pondering my training and have decided that I want to become a chariot racing horse. I think I have everything it takes:

Mr E and ms. S were very pleased with me yesterday. I also got  a hairdo and a pedi!

Genji: The other day, a very nice lady came to our house with a foldable bed. #1 said she was a masseuse and I immediately thought she had come for me!

But apparently, she had come for #1. So, I had to find something else to do and look what I saw!

Sadly, the window was closed so it couldn't come inside to play with me.

All this activity was very exhausting and required some serious nap time:

Please note the ear!

Da Beebs: I tried a bit of dangle but felt shy about it…

…but #1 said I looked cute.

It was hard work and I needed a nap. So, I switched to a Paw Pile!

Tom: Remember the field that was all golden last week? Well, it's now floofy white!

I have continued to help #1 with the logging and the pile is now quite impressive!

And to finish off this Manly Monday, here is a nice portrait that #1 took of me a few days ago:

Here's wishing you all a Happy Monday!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: I am glad to report that I have done a little better this week than last and actually do have a couple of photos of me snugging! Here I am having a big cuddle with my Tommy:

And held in a vise for a snuggle with #1!!!

My Beebs, on the other paw, goes looking for snuggles all the time, purring so loud you can probably hear him over in America! This picture is less than perfect, but here he is giving #1 a major snuggle:

And here he is, making a large batch of biscuits on Tommy!

Little Genji was pretty eager to make up for that somewhat scary picture last week…

But that didn't stop him from a full frontal snuggle attack on #1!

As for Sei-Chan, well… she snuggled with Tommy!

You would be forgiven for thinking that she doesn't move from Tommy's paws between one week and the next...

We have no snuggle pics with the Big V today, but #1 did take a couple of fun selfies with Violette:

And this concludes our SoS post for this week. We wish you all a Very Snuggly Sunday!

PS: Sei-Chan would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments on her SEIturday post. She's been walking around with that faraway dreamy expression on her face!

Sei-Chan: Ahem…. I have to mention that my SEIturday post one week ago got only nine comments, making it the only post in longer than we can remember to have had fewer than ten comments. Friends, I am mortified! Do you not find my SEiturday ponderings and photos worthy of comment? Sniff… When I think of all the time and effort I put in to preparing my posts! Double sniff…

Well, now that I've gotten that of my chest, let's get down to this week's business, shall we? The weather has been mostly lovely and #1 has had plentiful opportunity to take nice sunpuddle shots. Here I am on the lizard-viewing platform:

Now please take a good look at this next photo, in particular look in the region of my front paws:

Yes! That is indeed a lizard. We wouldn't tell #1 who actually caught it, but I played with it a lot. It was fun!

I was pleased!

And very sleepy from all the effort!

Wishing you all a lovely SEIturday!

Frootbat and Flying Ears Friday

Genji: I get to host, I GET TO HOST!!!! Welcome to FROOTBAT FRIDAY which, I am told by #1, was started by two kitties called Kaze (an Oriental Shorthair)  and Latte (A Meezer). They no longer blog but we do get occasional updates on FaceBook, and know they're well.

Anyway, I shall kick off with my very own blue Frootbats!

Sorry about the half-wink there. I had only just woken up and was not yet completely operational, but my Frootbats were all there!

As you know, my Beebs Bro is very proud of his Frootbats. I guess they're OK…

Here is Tama-Chan with what we would consider to be very relaxed 'Bats:

And here is an unusually rude-looking Sei-Chan with her 'Bats:

Violette decided to submit something a little different this week in terms of 'Bat perspective…

Whereas the Big V, Vidock, decided to go for timeless good looks:


And, exceptionally today, in the spirit of "Forever Friday", we would also like to include our Rainbow 'Bats!

#1's first kitty, Ikkyu:


And Yuu-Chan:

Happy Friday, Everyone!
