Wordy Wednesday

: Wednesday is normally a day of few, if any, words in our blogging world, but we have stuff to tell you, so here goes.

Firstly, a big, big thanks to our good friends at The Paw Relations who quickly elucidated the identity of our little bug yesterday. It is an an Adscita Statices which is a day-flying moth, and is commonly known as The Forester (Turquoise in French). It is apparently not seen that often, so we feel very lucky!

Yesterday, it poured all day so, aside from me, there was not much in the way of outdoor activity. But the sun is just now coming out and we have been promised gorgeous weather over the next few days. In the meantime, here is a shot of me enjoying my wet run this morning:

I had a rapt audience today:

The girls have been pretty laid back in this tail end to their isolation from us:

... entertaining themselves with the occasional game of pat-a-cake...

For some reason, girls make me think of kits. Remember the two who were here with their Mama, Viña, a little while ago? We visited them the other day. They are doing really well!

As for our own two boys, they are very good at pretending to be little saints...

... but good luck to anyone who happens to be in their path when they're playing THoE or chasing a bug!

Lastly, we wanted to tell you that we will not be blogging tomorrow, and probably not visiting either, as #1 is off to Paris for the day. She is going to catch an exhibition at the Musée Marmottan, have a relaxing lunch with a friend, and then pick up supplies at the Japanese and Lebanese grocery stores - exotic stuff we can't get here in the country. I will be partly here with the kitties and partly at the neighbours', and the Chans will all be enjoying the run as it's going to be warm and sunny!

See you on Friday!


  1. Oh Tommy, I understand exactly what you mean about THoE! When Suey and Lishy run about like nutters, I need to dive out of their way!
    We hope #1 has a fabulous time tomorrow. Musee Marmottan is one of mum's favourites :)

  2. We hopes #1 has a good time in Paris. We will be on the lookout for you Friday.

  3. My mum SO wishes she could say she was off to Paris for the day!

  4. Vina's little kittens are growing well! They are very cute.

    We hope #1 has a great day in Paris.

  5. Furry nice Wordy Wednesday!

    We hope #1 has an enjoyable trip and bring bakhk nom noms fur all of woo!

  6. It was lovely to see Vina's kitties again today - they are very pretty. Nice action shot Tommy and lovely wet flying ears!!
    Hope #1 has a good day tomorrow and brings lots of goodies back.

  7. Love the action shot! Great pics....cute kitty....have a safe trip.

  8. Glad you cleared up the bug name mystery...and so quickly! We love the patty-cake picture!! We never do that so we really had a good laugh looking at that! We hope #1 enjoys her trip to the big city and gets all she needs and gets her fill of coffee in the cafes...we hope the weather is good and that she can sit outside and enjoy the Parisian life!! We, too, have to go into the Paris of the Czech Republic - Prague - to stock up on supplies we can't find out here - like good cat food and cat treats!! Normally, we spend half our time in Prague (in our flat there) and half here in the country, but because we thought (THOUGHT) the weather would be nice, we came here for a longer stay, but today the weather is absolute C R A P and we can't even step outside to have a few bites of grass it is so cold and rainy. Grrrrrrrrrrr! You guys behave while #1 is away and be sure to give her lots of sweet cuddles when she returns!! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny
    Oh! almost forgot, Mom gave you guys an award today!

  9. Oops!! Mom just told me that I got ahead of herself, but I couldn't help it...I was so excited about it!! You will be getting an award on FRIDAY!! Ah, I blew the secret!! Sorry!!

  10. Enjoy Paris, & for the Chan, enjoy the sun....

    ViVi & AB

  11. Thank you for all the news! We hope #1 has a wonderful time tomorrow! We know you will all be enjoying the sunshine. xoxo

  12. Oh what great pictures of everyone! We can totally understand why the girls make you think of the kits, and we love the update on them! We hope that #1 has a good time on her day out in Paris - it sounds like it will be very fun!

  13. We love the patty cake pictures, hysterical. What fun romping outside Tommy. Well we see your mom is going to be away for a good reason. Hope she has lots of fun.
