Manly Monday

Tommy: I went out with #1 yesterday to a small fair that had Percheron horses, and I met some nice woofies there!

And I also went out dining with #1 and a friend on Saturday evening!

Da Boys: May we present exhibit A?

Da Beebs: I really don't know why #1 was going on about needing to cut my nails...

Yes, she cut them and I was a very good boy, as I always am.

Genji: Did somebody say good boy?

Vidock: A pile of hay and a bucket of cool water. That is what I call the good life!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: Here we are, on Snuggle Sunday again. The weather has finally improved and the farmer is making hay in the fields around our house. Tommy will be able to run in them again soon! In the meantime, we have been keeping him busy snugging. First me:

And also my Beebs and Da Genj:

I do occasionally stop by to snuggle with #1 when she is working:

 Da Genj has been doing his usual stuff with #1:

And we have a nice one of #1 with Violette:

Wishing you all a sunny and snuggly Sunday!

Sei-Chan's Arty Rainbow Saturday

Sei-Chan: Rainbow Purrs, Everyone! I know that, for many people, today is Art Saturday, so I thought we might do a variant on that for this post. You see, #1 actually has paintings of three of the Rainbow boys, Ikkyu, Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan. As for me, there are of course those wonderful photos the professional photographer from Japan, Mr. O, took, so let me share them with you today.

#1's first Aby, Ikkyu, actually had his first portrait painted by Ms.C  whilst he was alive. Here is a pic of him with his upside-down portrait!

And here is the actual portrait, properly framed (by #1) and hanging on the wall in the living room:

Also before Ikkyu went to the Bridge, another friend, Ms. Z, who is a professional painter, made an amazing portrait of Ikkyu for #1 as a Christmas present one year:

Here it is on the wall, on the landing at Poupounette Central:

Some of you will remember Kathleen Coy, the wonderful animal portraitist who had a great dog named Cloud. #1 asked her to do portraits of Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan for her, and they now hang on her bedroom wall:

That's Yuu-Chan on the left and Sen-Chan on the right.

I of course have not (yet) been immortalised in oils, so here is one of the lovely photographic portraits of me by Hiroaki Ota:

I hope you have enjoyed this post of us in art. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Feline Friday

Da Beebs: Welcome to Feline Friday! #1 got a rather unusual photo of all three of us a couple of days ago. It is unusual for us to be eating all at the same time and in the same place. We each like to eat in our own place and we make sure that #1 knows where that is (it sometimes changes, according to the day and weather!). But that day, we all ate at the kitchen table!

Here I am, just a moment later, very attentive to some movement outside the living room window:

Here is one of mama Tama assisting #1 with her laptop:

Da Genj and I making sure that #1 doesn't fall out of bed during the night:

And Da Genj complaining that even though it has stopped raining, we're still not getting any sunpuddles!

Wishing you all an excellent Friday, and to our friends who fasted through Ramadan, we would like to say HARI RAYA or EID MUBARAK!

Tommy's Thankful Thursday

Tommy: Woofs everyone. We have plenty to be thankful for today. It has finally stopped raining. Many areas and towns near us have experienced bad flooding, but we were spared and are very thankful. I am also thankful that #1's knee continues to get better.

I only have this one photo to share with you today. I hope you will like it:

Whiskers on Wednesday

Da Genj: #1 was wondering about our post for today and I told her it would be fun to do a whisker post! So, I posed for a photo:

And so did Tommy:

On of our red squirrel buddies who had stopped by for a few sunflower seeds said he would like to participate:

The Big V said we could use one of his pics from the show:

And do you remember our beautiful friend Daisy? She sent in a really nice pic!

And that's it for today's whiskery post!

Tama-Chan's Thundery Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Oh Dear Friends, the WEATHER! It has been every kind of awful you can imagine for the past I don't know how many days. We have just been getting thunderstorm after thunderstorm after thunderstorm. We have been lucky in that we have not experienced any flooding or power outages, but it has been awful for people not too far from us. It is supposed to start drying from tomorrow and we are crossing everything we've got. Everyone is worried about hay-making because animals need their feed for next winter, but the fields are all drenched. The only good thing is that none of us is actually frightened of boomies.

#1 did manage to get some cool photos of me before the heavens opened last week, so I have a few nice shots to share with you. The first one I already shared on Facebook:

#1 had caught me red-pawed when I was having a bath!


How about this tail'n'foot dangle?

And a head dangle. I was watching the goings-on outside the window:

Here's looking at you,  Friends!
