Snuggles on Sunday - Selfies!


Tama-Chan: This Sunday, we thought we would do things a little differently and post only snuggle selfies! So let me start with one of me and #1:


Next, here is one of #1 with Sei-Chan. As you can see, Sei-Chan was giving her a kiss when the pic was taken:


Here is a fun selfie that Tommy and #1 took when they were at the beach:


Whenever #1 is in her bed, whether it is at night or for an afternoon nap, Da Boys are always with her. Here is My Beebs using her hand as a pillow:

 
 Here is Da Genj using her chest as a pillow...


 And here she is, busy with both boys!


Violette is of course a real pro at selfies:


 We actually don't have a selfie for Vidock, so here is just a standard pic of him and #1:


Remember! Sundays are for Snuggles!

SEIturday


Sei-Chan: After a week of rain and col weather, we seem to be heading back into summer mode for a few days. The windows are all open again and we are all basking in sunpuddles.


Our plans for the weekend are to do nothing in particular and that is just fine by us!


I shall do the odd bit of supervising from my zabuton:


But I am planning to spend the bulk of my time just chilling!

 
 Have a great SEIturday, everyone!

Feline Friday


Da Beebs: Can there be anything better, at the end of a long week, than looking at pictures of handsome kitties? Thought so... So. let's start with one of me, shall we?


As you can observe, I can dangle with the best of them! But here is one of my Mama Tama dangling with a rainbow on her back!


Da Genj spends an awful lot of time at his ablutions each day:


 And here is Sei-Chan at one of her favourite observation posts, in the tatami mat area of the study:

Tama-Chan's Thankful Thursday


Tama-Chan: Yes, Tommy and #1 returned as planned last night and our family is together again! For that, we are all thankful. I gather that Tommy had a totally awesome time with those five boys to play with (it was FIVE, not four!) and he can't wait to see them again and vice versa. And apparently, #1's cousins tried to get her to stay longer but she said we were expecting her and so she had to get back. Ms. P was wonderful to us but she left yesterday morning to  go on her own little mini-trip so we needed #1 back!

Here is my nice portrait for this week:


And here is a meditative dangle:

 
The weather has been very mixed lately, but one can generally locate a sunpuddle here and there if one is patient:


This next one was taken on #1 and Tommy's birthday. I was enjoying an afternoon nap because I knew I would be busy in the evening...


... supervising the birthday party!

Wednesday Whinnies and Welcome Home!


Violette: Pretty Neighs Everyone! I wanted to show you the new shoes that I got last week! I know that #1 mentioned that I would be getting them but we haven't yet shown you actual photos. For the last several months, I have had special shoes with bars to help distribute the weight more evenly on my feet. Now, I am back to regular shoes, but they are fitted differently so that they also achieve the same effect of easing the pressure on my ligaments.

Here is the farrier fitting the new shoe. As you can see, it is set a little back on my hoof


So, it gives me my foot a rather elegant, rounded aspect!


Getting a final finish!


They feel nice and light on my feet after those heavy ones I had before:



Tommy: Today is the day that #1 and I are heading home and we are hoping for quite a welcome from The Chans. But I know I am going to miss those boys and vice versa.



I hope I get to see them again soon!

Tommy Tuesday!


Tommy: I know that this is normally Tama-Chan's day, but she said I could have her post today to tell you more about my vacation at the beach. I have been having such a great time. Aside from being with #1, which i always awesome, I also have FIVE boys to look after me, pet me and play with me! THE BEST!

Just look at these two guys. They are twins and the youngest of the boys:


Here I am getting brushies from one of the twins:


I have also gotten to know my cousin, Pixel. He normally lives in Germany, and isn't really used to woofies. But I think he kinda likes me...


He is a very handsome Panther guy:


Yesterday morning, #1 and I went for a short walk on the beach, even though it was very stormy. My ears were blowing every which way!


But I did get to meet a very cute Westie called Daisy:



It was a bit calmer in the afternoon and we all went for a long walk in the woods behind the sand dunes:



The boys were taking turns throwing me the ball. It was amazing!



I just love going on vacation with #1!
