Manly Monday - The boys go to the vet...

: Sorry we're late posting again. We had an unexpected trip to see Dr. C, our vet, today. #1 noticed last night that I had a bit of a bump under the skin on my chest and wanted to get it checked out. It turns out it is from a black thorn prick, and it should go away all by itself, so nothing to worry about. Phew!

We have some photos to share with you, of course. It is very manly for a dog to go to work with his mistress, and I was very proud to accompany#1 to the Percheron Horse Society one morning last week.

My pal Eve was at the neighbours' until Thursday, se we got in lots of playtime:

But of course, the most fun was having #1 try out her new camera on all of us. Here is a photo she took of me the first day!


And don't I look debonnair in this one?

Yuu-Chan: Would you believe it, she took me to the vet too! All bcause I had two strange-looking bald patches on my inner left thigh. Needless to say, I sang (actually "screamed at the top of my lungs") all the way there and back. Dr. C said it was nothing bacterial or hormonal or stress-related, but it looked as though I had been rubbing against something, probably in the run. I am in fabulous shape otherwise, so no meds at all. It's shedding time and should grow back with all the new fur.

Here I am, engaging in the very manly activity of watching over my big sister, Tama-Chan, as she naps:

Playing manly games with my (almost invisible) little brother:

and resting after so much hard work...

Bibi-Chan: I went to see Dr. C last week so I didn't need to go again, and it befell to me to protect my two older sisters from any possible intruders whilst #1, Tommy and Yuu-Chan were gone. I am supposed to be only a Mancat-in-Training as I am not yet 4 months old, but I thought I did a grand job!

And on the subject of mancatlines, how many even fully grown mancats do you know who love to play bitey-face with their woofie friends?

I was also fearless in facing the Trial by Fire, or if you prefer, sitting by the fireplace...

And, with a little bit of help from my friends, I can do extraordinary feats!!!

Hoping your week has gotten off to a great start!


  1. BiBi-Chan!! ME LOVES to play "whose mouth is bigger" and "lion tamer" and "bitey face" with MY woofie furriend Maxx! - Billy

  2. Well I am glad that everything seems to be okay! Enjoy your week having gotten that nasty vet visit out of the way!

  3. Glad everything went well at the pics are showing up....the blogger is sick today....

  4. That was very thoughtful of you to sing to keep #1 and Tommy entertained on the way to the vet, Yuu-Chan!

  5. Seems like never a dull day there in Perche! Lots of manliness all around.

  6. Tommy, that is an awesome action shot! You look faster than a speeding bullet! We are glad all your Vet issues were nothing serious. Now you can all get back to the business of being snuggly kittehs!

  7. You have a lot going on there!
    Tommy, we are glad you are ok!

    What a day woo had!

    We are glad to see it isn't anything serious -

    Great pikhs too!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! Sporting AND Working

  14. Oh, Tommy, a lump is always scary stuff and we're relieved it's nothing. Siena had a lump for MONTHS on her rabies injection site and it's just so good when they go away. Yuu-Yuu, you look like you're in great shape and it's no surprise the vet said it too. And Bibi-Boy, you did a great job at home with the ladies.

  15. We're glad that all the vet visits went okay and you're all in good health.

    Bibi, you're growing so fast!

  16. We are so glad the vet visits all went well! And Bibi you did a great job watching your sisters considering how young you are - you are doing a great job of becoming a mancat!

  17. wow, thank goodness thats all it was...
    Benny & Lily

  18. Even bad days have a bit of good in them! Glad the vet visits turned out to be not so serious and that you had fun, runnin' Tom!
