Remembering Sen-Chan

#1 here, writing from the south shore of Prince Edward Island where she has only a dial-up connection... The news from France is good. Yesterday, Tama-Chan managed to escape from the run and ended up far up a tree and could not come done until a neighbour produced a tall ladder! Sei-Chan is busy playing and purring, and Tommy is playing, playing and playing! Hopefully, there wil be some photos soon.

But this post is to remember our SEN-CHAN who would have been 2 years old today. It is still hard to believe that he is gone. Two is still so very young. But he is so very much with us in presence every day. He was the sweetest, sweetest boy, and had a way of looking straight at people with the most trusting expression in his eyes.

He loved to explore the outdoors

And he was always VERY relaxed. His favourite sleeping position exposed every vulnerable part of him

He adored his brother Tommy

And lavished affection on Tama-Chan when she arrived

All those who met him said he had a magical quality to him, one that is well represented in this photo of him, taken the time he got up on the roof last October

Sen-Chan, we will never forget you!


  1. Sen-Chan had a beautiful spirit about him. It's evident in both your writing and the photos. I wish he could have been of this earth longer for me to have known him better.

  2. Fur a khat, he is khwite handsome!

    Tank woo fur taking time out of your time in Khanada to share his memory with us

    And give us the opp to paw some wooooo fur him!

    I probably would have almost liked fur the detail of the khat thing!

    PeeEssWoo: Woo are all missed!!!

  3. He DID have a magical quality about him, and we thinks he had a very old soul. He was and is a special boy.
    We will not forget him :)

  4. We are sending big purry hugs to you today number 1. What a lovely rememberance of a wonderful young mancat.

  5. We're thinking of you all today!

    Glad to hear that everything is going well in France and that was a lovely post to remember Sen-Chan.

  7. Sen-Chan sure was a special kitty. I miss him, too.

  8. Sen-Chan was magical. Love that roof shot!

  9. Oh, what a wonderful tribute to Sen-Chan! He was such a pretty kitty and it is so sad he had to leave so young, but so wonderful that you still have him in your hearts!

  10. As someone fortunate enough to have met Sen-Chan face-to-face, I can attest that he was one very special pussycat. Exceptionally sweet, even for an Aby! I know he shared some of his magic with Tama-Chan who is now teaching those same lessons to Sei-Chan.

    Big hugs as you celebrate his all too brief life.

    Your pals,

    Jane (and Petey and Mica, too)

  12. What a beautiful creature Sen Chan was, and what a lovely tribute to him. He certainly is one handsome boy and I have no doubt that he is up over the bridge watching over you and the furkids there...

  17. Sen-Chan was gorgeous. You know I think it was news of his passing that first led us to your blog.

    Such a nice way to remember him today.

  18. What a nice tribute to your memory of Sen-Chan - what a gorgeous boy!!!

    Let's hope Tama-Chan isn't teaching the little one what she did to get up that tree:)

  19. What a wonderful fellow! I miss him still. It was such fun to share in his adventures in the fields with Tommy. I'm glad the girls are well and safe-please tell us that someone fixed the escape route! And so glad Tommy is playing and happy!

  20. Sen-Chan sure was a peach! And he had the most adorable toe pads, too! We still miss him terribly.

  21. We miss him too #1.

  23. I still miss you,Sen-Chan.

    I never forget you, of course.

  24. We miss Sen-Chan very much as well.
    Those were some wonderful photos of him.

  25. Sen-Chan, you were truly one of a kind. An old soul, so wise beyond his years. It was great to see him again, so regal.

    Hope you are having some sun now #1!! It has been a wet summer so far out East!

  26. Sen-Chan was a very special kitty. we don't understand why he had to leave us so soon. he is in heaven though, watching over all of his loved ones.


  27. Now I know why Momma Isis has been cuddling with Keekai today too... Now doubt she has been thinking of what would have been her and Sen-Chan's 1st Anniversary too! I have cuddled her and played with her all I could too...


    PS: Tommy should not help himself to your friends Sei-Chan!

  28. Sen-Chan was such a special guy! Thank you for posting such a lovely tribute to him.

  29. We miss you a lot Sen-Chan. It seems like just yesterday you were entertaining us with your relaxed attitude and outdoor adventures.

  36. We all wish we could have met Sen-Chan. He was a beautiful cat, we especially loved seeing him on his outdoors explorations with his ? tail, and whooping and leaping after Mr. Bun.

    Purrs and love,
    Abby & Stygia
